The future of smart automotive technology is an innovative phase of growth. Car-to-cloud connectivity is set to revamp the idea of smart mobility while making road transport safer, energy-efficient, and effective.
FREMONT, CA: Vehicles are transforming from individual, self-contained, transportation-focused objects to sophisticated, internet-connected endpoints, often capable of two-way communication. The new data streams created by modern connected vehicles drive innovative business models like usage-based insurance, allow new in-vehicle experiences, and develop the foundation for innovations in-vehicle technology like autonomous driving and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication. From creating stronger, higher capacity engines to now changing focus on developing smarter cars, the segment has been advancing in the real sense and embracing the best in the emerging technology. Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) is powering innovation set to change the automobile segment and the concept of smart travel.
Vehicle-to-everything is an integrated communication system that enables a smart automobile to always be connected to its environment. All the communication cannot go through the cloud always because of high latency
and un-availability of the internet. The advent of 5G will mitigate this issue to a great extent. These are known as Connected Vehicles and usually comprise automobiles with Interactive Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems and Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems and are developed to improve situation awareness and identify and avoid accidents. Connected vehicles implement intelligent communication that can be leveraged to solve traffic problems, improve road safety, and provide seamless in-transit infotainment, parking assistance, and roadside support. It is useful for remote diagnostics, telematics for self-driving vehicles, and global positioning systems (GPS).
One of the vital features of connected cars is the two-way communication that translates into many data, exchanged consistently over an easy network. Connected vehicles share information about them and gather lots of sensory data from their surroundings, usually data generated by cameras, and radars, which needs to be adequately aggregated, analyzed, and shared in real-time to maintain a consistent V2X system. If done singularly or in a disconnected means, it can mitigate the network's efficiency and render the whole technology redundant. While the above factors create a convincing picture, cloud connectivity and V2X communications is yet to address issues around integrated data collections, network support, and access to high-end connectivity bandwidth across terrains.
