Applications of the cloud in the automotive industry
A connected vehicle is a car, truck, bus, or any other vehicle that can be connected to nearby devices via the internet. Cloud is used by connected cars to store and share huge amounts of data about the vehicle, the surroundings, and safety measures.
Connected vehicle cloud platforms give drivers valuable insights about vehicle conditions, safe driving routes, real-time traffic conditions, environmental changes, and usage patterns, among others. Additionally, connected vehicle technology enables cars, buses, trucks and other vehicles to communicate with each other and exchange critical safety and mobility information.
Autonomous cars are self-driving cars that sense their surroundings and drive on their own. Self-driving cars require high computing power and large amounts of online storage that can easily be provided by the cloud. Hence, cloud computing is widely being used in self-driving cars to enable better functionality of the vehicle.
Electric vehicles (EVs) use smart charging to recharge their batteries. These smart charging stations are equipped with sensors that are cloud-connected for optimal consumption of energy.
EVs also use cloud network solutions to allow drivers to get information about the road and weather conditions by exchanging data with data centres.
