FREMONT, CA: Technology is already being tested to facilitate connected cars to correspond with other vehicles on the road, such as ambulances, in addition to infrastructures like helping drivers avoid accidents, traffic lights and jams, and other slow-downs. A connected car is an automobile, which is connected to the internet through a mobile data stream. This facilitates the vehicle to connect and communicate with other devices like smartphones, inside and outside the vehicle.
Connected cars are part of superior technology—the Internet of Things (IoT), which connects everyday devices through the internet. The smart tools are ubiquitous, from refrigerators that can notify people when they are running short of milk and mechanically order more to mirrors that can give news and weather updates while people brush their teeth.
The popular features in connected cars these days are infotainment systems that fundamentally alter cars into smartphones on wheels and facilitate drivers to broaden their digital lives onto the road effortlessly. For instance, voice-activated systems facilitate users to control a vehicle's audio, navigation, and climate feature, in addition to making calls and sending text messages, all without taking their eyes off the road and wheel. The occasion not only helps to avert unfocused driving but also transforms travel into a productive experience.
Besides, when caught in traffic on the way to work, people can securely check and reply to messages, listen to audiobooks, or join a conference call. Connectivity traits can also help save money and time. Most navigation systems can check real-time traffic situations and propose an alternate way to avoid bad weather or traffic, resulting in shorter trip times and more resourceful driving. Features like tire pressure analysis can send alerts when a tire is not inflated, causing failure and inadequate fuel consumption, which otherwise can be higher if a tire is under-inflated.
