IoT: A Game Changer In The Automotive Industry

Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming automotive industry, and according to expectations more than 20 billion IoT devices will rule the sector by 2020.

FREMONT, CA: Internet of Things (IoT) devices has changed our lives. Nowadays, users of IoT devices can monitor engine performance, control air temperature, and measure physical health indicators with only a few clicks. It is expected that by 2020, there will be more than 20 billion IoT devices in the industry.

Predictive maintenance, Wi-Fi capabilities powered by 3G/4G/5G functionality, Car2Car connectivity, and advanced fleet management are some examples of the changing automotive industry with IoT development. Some of the most exciting applications of IoT in the automotive sector can be categorized as follows:

• In-vehicle infotainment

Different kinds of smart apps are being baked into car infotainment systems to supply in-car navigation, telematics, and entertainment. Google has collaborated with apps such as Google Maps, Play Store, and Google Assistant into vehicle infotainment systems. In the same manner, Apple CarPlay is offered as a feature in a number of mid- to high-end cars. It is expected that in coming years, vehicles will have software and connectivity features implanted into their infotainment systems, which will allow drivers to access maps, on-demand entertainment, and a whole lot of internet-connected services on the go.

• Predictive maintenance

 There are several sensors in the operational components of vehicles that can evaluate metrics such as speed, engine status, temperature, navigation, and electrical systems, which can calculate performance variables and forecast performance. The data gathered will be used to update owners with preventative and predictive maintenance alerts helping them to address issues before they arise.

• Security, surveillance, and safety

Outside sensors are additionally utilized as back view cameras and proximity sensors that guide in blind spot recognition and assist in more accessible parking and more secure driving. Drivers are additionally secured with cutting edge sensors that can monitor surrounding traffic patterns and the environment to ensure safe driving. And with the use of networked mesh cars on the road, onboard systems can predict and avoid collisions far in advance of actual occurrences.

• Data analytics and dashboard reporting

Connected vehicles offer a rich source of driver information fundamental to the improvement, testing, and prototyping of better self-driving cars. As an ever-increasing number of vehicles with IoT engage with the real world, the wealth and quality of data will inevitably enhance. With data analytics and dashboard detailing apparatuses, associations in the car business can keep on improving their contributions and better serve the requirements of their clients.

• Real-time monitoring

Now manufacturers can get real-time data sharing from vehicles with the help of IoT tools. It will improve maintenance and manufacturing processes throughout the vehicle’s lifecycle. The data sharing will also improve predictive insights to allow faster response times, in case of any serious problematic issues, and make it easier for manufacturers to be accountable and proactive in case of crisis scenarios.

• Cognitive insights for management

Connected cars enable manufacturers to inform drivers about any problems and automate tedious tasks such as scheduling a car servicing appointment with the nearest car dealer or service center. In this manner, cars autonomously will get regular service with little inconvenience to the consumer.
