FREMONT, CA: Evolving technology brings various opportunities to learn and experience the perks of advanced machinery that thrives on making everything easy to access. In the automotive industry, the makers have to inculcate the new capabilities to effectively connect vehicles and overcome the obstacles while leveling up the connectivity management strategy.
By exploring more about 5G and edge computing, automakers can connect vehicles and distribute the braking data within them so that there will not be any scope for delay in foreseeing the information. For example, while driving a vehicle connected to the rest of the cars if any sudden stop is experienced, the car being driven will be able to anticipate the brake and keep the person safe.
The introduction of 5G enables automakers and OEMs to come up with new inventions and making the car ready to analyze the data stored in it and the cloud faster and figure workloads seamlessly. With the help of 5G and the edge, the auto industry can produce roads full of self-driving vehicles and data computing, which provides innovative safety and infotainment services.
Apart from the services it can provide, the use of 5G and edge computing needs good hands with expertise in LTE/5G network operations. In order to improvise the inventions, the automakers have to keep in touch with the connectivity experts who can work through the difficulties and give better global coverage without facing lifecycle management issues or the ongoing and complex maintenance.
With automakers struggling to make 5G connected vehicles a trendsetter, they need to know about a few crucial things they can come across:
• AI is influencing the auto industry, and interactive technologies will change the industry into a digital service business.
• To get closer to the drivers, OEMs are decreasing warranty expenses and empowering business models by accumulating car sensor data.
• The consumer services and telematics are being offered in a single SIM-card by the service providers to enhance TCO and user experience.
Even though many new technologies have been introduced lately, existing networks are not well-suited for these advancements. Here, 5G could play a significant role. It will also be fruitful in consider connectivity not just as a cost, but as a business promoter.
