Connected car technology is propelled by the quick advancement of technologies, including IoT, AI, and ML.
FREMONT, CA: After years of hype and anticipation, the Internet of Things (IoT) has evolved from a theoretical concept into a mainstream enterprise application. Internet of Things refers to an extensive network of internet-connected devices that can interact with other devices and networks. They can gather and analyze data and perform actions autonomously. The implementation of IoT technology in business improves functionality, boosts productivity, mitigates human errors, facilitates real-time monitoring, and enhances customer experience.
A connected car is a platform armed with onboard sensors and internet connectivity to communicate with digital devices, road infrastructures, and vehicles. The connected car's major objective is to streamline its operation, performance, and maintenance, along with providing sophistication to users. Connected cars are integrated with an IoT platform that connects vehicles, road infrastructure, and other smart devices.
Connected Vehicles and Autonomous Vehicles are the trending innovations in the automotive sector currently. Connected cars offer several novelty features, including infotainment and productivity, and offer useful information to the driver to make safer and improved decisions. The connected car can provide remote parking and route navigation, but the driver still has ultimate control. It simply supplies useful data to the driver and enhances the potentials for cooperative driving. However, it doesn’t make any options for the driver.
The autonomous vehicle can drive independently, without the requirement of a human driver. In a self-driving car, users will be in the passenger seat, offering the car ultimate driving control. It is computer-driven and has sensors, radar, cameras, and AI to negotiate public roads. It identifies and avoids obstacles without any human interference and takes the passengers to the destination, leveraging innovative image recognition.
Connected vehicle technology facilitates communication with the outside environment, interaction with other vehicles, and real-time data on the road, traffic, and weather. Moreover, connected cars aim to manage the most significant hurdles encountered by regular vehicles in the areas of safety, mobility, and environment.
