Top 5 Automotive IoT Use Cases
According to Business Insider, $267 billion will be spent on Automotive IoT solutions over the next five years. Automotive IoT (Internet of Things) brings on board new layers to the traditional car concept paving the path of transition from traditional cars to smart connected cars. Connected cars certainly offer a royal driving experience leveraging a stack of plug-and-play IoT components. In my previous blogs, I have shared IoT use cases in manufacturing and retail. But today’s fast world demands more. In order to keep up to the pace, today I will be sharing some mind-blowing automotive IoT use cases. Here it all, goes for you.
5 Automotive IoT Use Cases
#1 Connected Cars
It is high time for connected car owners to leverage the cloud-enabled platform and enjoy the benefits of value-added user services and applications. Besides remote application and database integration, automotive IoT brings in remote auto-companion apps, in-car infotainment apps, automotive ecommerce and lot more for connected cars. City navigation, location based services, drive assist applications, car-on-demand services, usage based insurance, remote diagnostics, car security services and lot more comes on your way of connected car mission.
#2 Fleet Management
Leveraging in-vehicle data collection, in-cloud data management and user analytics, automotive IoT encourages implementation of end-to-end fleet management. Fleet Management solutions encompasses connected vehicle sensors, vehicle location tracking and scheduling, fuel tracking, speed control, vehicle usage analytics, car leasing solutions, fleet and driver management, traffic management and even workload management.
#3 Vehicle Telematics
A crash resistant duplex black box ensures car safety and guides you in going on the correct track. Vehicle telematics also supports easy roadside assistance summoning during accidents & emergencies and increasing infotainment. Being one of the major automotive IoT use case, telematics itself controls navigation, security, safety, communications and lot more.
#4 Predictive Maintenance and Safety
Vehicle and driver safety are ensured through embedding a portfolio of software development kits (SDKs) into hardware, data transmitters, sensors and vehicle control units. Achieve predictive maintenance exploiting connected vehicle sensors, real time vehicle health monitoring, automated maintenance scheduling, seatbelt usage, anti-drowsiness solutions, in-lane position control mechanisms and lot more.
#5 Driver Assistance
Driver assistance primarily focuses on autopilot mode enablement, that is, partial or full automatic driving. The use case also highlights on operational assistance in heavy traffic, parking, in-lane or in highways.
Hope by now, you have already decided the automotive IoT use cases that you want to implement and adapt. So, lets walk forward in our connected automotive journey.
