What does IoT do in Automotive Industry?
The Internet of Things, or gadgets connected via a network, is no longer a futuristic concept. It’s here, and it’s rapidly altering our way of life. IoT has enabled improved transportation efficiency and management capabilities in the automobile industry, and it is pushing us toward a future of intelligent, autonomous vehicles. The global automotive IoT market is predicted to reach USD 106.32 billion by 2023, according to Netscribes market research, driven by the ever-increasing demand to save time and maximise productivity in today’s fast-paced world. Faster data transfers, response time, and enhanced vehicular communication will be accelerated by the arrival of high-speed mobile networks (5G and even beyond) on the horizon, which will stimulate this growth.
Car infotainment systems are incorporating smart apps to give in- car navigation, telematics, and entertainment. Several automakers have cooperated with Google to integrate Google Maps, Play Store, and Google Assistant into vehicle infotainment systems. Apple CarPlay is also available as a feature in a handful of mid- to high-end vehicles. The majority of today’s automotive entertainment systems are tethered or integrated, which means they must be connected to an external device for internet access, such as a smartphone. Future vehicles will include software and connectivity elements in their infotainment systems, allowing drivers to access maps, on-demand entertainment, and a variety of other internet-connected services while on the road.
Maintenance that is planned in advance
Sensors in vehicle operational components monitor functional metrics including temperature, engine status, speed, electrical systems, and navigation, which are used to measure performance variables and forecast performance benchmarks. The collected data is utilized to provide owners with preventive and preventative maintenance alarms, allowing them to fix issues before they become serious.
Surveillance, security, and safety
External sensors, including as rear-view cameras and proximity sensors, are also employed to aid with blind spot detection, easier parking, and safer driving. Advanced sensors that monitor nearby traffic patterns and the surroundings to ensure safe driving provide additional protection to drivers. Onboard technology can also predict and avoid collisions far in advance of actual events when mesh networked cars are used on the road.
