Connected Car and its Benefits

By Auto Tech Outlook | Tuesday, April 14, 2020

Connected car software can employ the gathered data to its benefit. For a personal car, the software can generate the most effective routes to wherever they want to go, avoiding traffic jams, busy streets, accidents, or roads that are under construction, saving businesses tons of travel time.

FREMONT, CA: A connected car is a vehicle with internet access that facilitates the devices, both inside and outside the car, to communicate with each other. Inside the car, one can find tools, such as sensors and on-board computers. The equipment outside the vehicle can be part of other cars, infrastructure, and houses.

Benefits of a Connected Car Solution

• Safety

IoT in the automotive industry offers plenty of hardware and software solutions so the vehicles can be aware of the surroundings and become more autonomous. For example, if the car can correspond with the smart city infrastructure, it can get real-time data about road conditions, traffic, accidents, and current weather.

With that, the vehicle can collect the data about the objects on the road around it, containing speed bumps, curbs, and other vehicles, thereby making car control and parking much more comfortable.

• Efficiency

Connected car software can employ the gathered data to its benefit. For a personal car, the software can generate the most effective routes to wherever they want to go, avoiding traffic jams, busy streets, accidents, or roads that are under construction, saving businesses tons of travel time. For fleets of vehicles on the other hand, connected software solutions helps to administer all the units at the same time. For example, the manager can trail the location of the automobiles using GPS and examine their condition and schedule maintenance, thus increasing the cars’ efficiency.

• Cost-effectiveness

Neither the employment of IoT infrastructure on the roads nor the connected vehicles are cheap. However, one can still see the data from the quantity of time and fuel saved from reduced traffic jams. Besides, a well-thought infrastructure makes it easy for people to carpool.

• Environment

With the rise in the carpooling, there will be fewer vehicles on the roads, meaning less air pollution from fuel emission. Moreover, most contemporary connected cars run on electricity, and the trend appears to be expanding.
