Connected transport ecosystems ease the problems of urbanization
Roads are increasingly congested, bus systems are busier, and subway carriages are packed to capacity during rush hours. The fact is, with so many people relying on the same modes of transportation, the need for smarter solutions has never been greater.
Connecting smart cities with connected cars is the critical next step. Here, technology has a major role to play, especially within the Internet of Things (IoT). The systems that exist in vehicles today, like automatic parking and rerouting to avoid congestions are the building blocks to future solutions for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication, vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) or even vehicle-to-everything (V2X).
Autonomous cars will be a vital source of information in the future. Vehicles, for example, have the potential to be used for crowdsourcing information, like locating potholes in order to improve road surfaces, and informing drivers about available parking spaces along their way. These cars will also make their own ‘decisions’ based on valid information, like air quality and the weather, that they receive from the connected world in which they operate.
The connected car is a reality. Stay tuned as the truly smart car appears in the next stage of connected vehicles.
Automakers need an open but highly secure connection to the transport ecosystem
Consumers are becoming increasingly savvy, with rising expectations to be connected all the time . Consequently, automotive connectivity needs to be totally state-of-the-art.
Multiple enablement services are required to support an open ecosystem around connected cars. Systems should not only be open and futureproof, but also meet the highest standards of reliability and security. Working closely with pioneers in the connected cars. has given us a unique understanding of today’s automotive industry. We apply that experience and insight to our connectivity solutions for the global automotive industry.
