How Connected Cars Improve Safety and Convenience on the Road

Auto Tech Outlook | Wednesday, June 08, 2022

The advent of the internet has dramatically changed the globe and everything it touches, including the car industry, over the last three decades. The ability to connect to a vehicle's network has revolutionized how we live, work, and drive.

Fremont, CA: Linked cars now have the processing capability of 20 PCs. They include more than 100 million lines of code capable of processing up to 25 gigabytes of data per hour, with more than 380 million connected vehicles expected to be on the road by 2022.

IoT and Connected Cars

A connected car uses a mobile data stream to connect to the internet. This enables the vehicle to communicate with other devices, such as cellphones, inside and outside the car. Connected cars are already being tested with technology that allows them to interact with other vehicles on the road, such as ambulances and infrastructure, such as traffic lights, to help drivers avoid accidents, traffic jams, and further delays.

Connected automobiles are part of a more significant technology movement known as the Internet of Things (IoT), the internet-based interconnection of everyday things. These intelligent devices can be found everywhere, from refrigerators that can detect when milk is running low and instantly order more to mirrors that can automatically collect more.

A Seamless Digital Experience

Infotainment systems, which essentially turn cars into "smartphones on wheels" and allow drivers to extend their digital lives onto the road effortlessly, are among the most popular technologies in today's connected cars.

Voice-activated systems, for example, allow users to manage the navigation, audio, and climate features of a vehicle and send text messages and make phone calls, all without taking their eyes off the road or their hands off the wheel. This helps to eliminate distracted driving and makes commutes more productive. Customers may safely check and respond to messages, attend a conference call, or listen to audiobooks instead of wasting time stuck in traffic on their way to work.

Safety When You Need It

The most crucial benefit of linked cars is increased driver and passenger safety. Adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking (AEB), and lane-keeping assistance are just a few of the semi autonomous hypermiling  capabilities enabled by today's car networking systems. As more people become aware of the game-changing benefits of these technologies, they are beginning to look for them in their automobiles and trucks.

By using cameras and sensors in vehicles to help prevent accidents before they happen, these innovative features have revolutionized automotive safety. Today's connected automobiles feature monitoring systems that may warn drivers of impending threats and if required, intervene and take control of the vehicle to avert a crash.
