How Telematics and the IoT are Transforming Commercial Transportation

Together, telematics and IoT technologies are changing the entire landscape of the commercial transportation industry, as well as every industry that is reliant on its vehicles to do business.

How to Make Intelligent Cars a Reality on the Roads

Connected cars use vast amounts of data. In just one hour, a connected car will upload 25 GB/data to the cloud – exceeding the storage capacity of most modern smartphones and equaling roughly 12 HD films. In total, around 4,000 GB/data will be used a day. To put this in context, a smart hospital will use around 3,000 GB.

How IoT Data Collection and Aggregation with Local Event Processing Work

Trying to predict how many Internet of Things (IoT) devices will go online over the next decade is like trying to predict the growth rate of rabbits in the wild. It suffices to say that 2017 could be the year in which IoT devices exceed the total human population, based on a Gartner forecast of 8.4 billion IoT connected devices, or one device for each of the 7.5 billion people, plus just under a billion more to spare.

The Connected Car IoT/Big Data Opportunity for Automakers

The exponential growth of in-vehicle connected devices is a driving force behind automakers’ interest in collecting, storing, distributing and analyzing the volumes of diverse data sets being collected from connected car technologies (e.g., Wi-Fi, IoT, telematics).

When Is a Connected Car Not a Car?

Cars are mobile – it’s why they were invented, to move us from here to there. Connected cars can’t depend on traditional IT infrastructures that are centralized and fixed, with data traffic running back and forth between a distant corporate data center.

The IoT Is the Next Massive, Disruptive Wave

Mobile World Congress 2017 highlights how mobile IoT is driving greater innovation, digital transformation and opportunity

Where Connected Cars Are Headed – Fast

The auto industry is gathering at the North American Auto Show in Detroit this week, after making a splash at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week. For years, we’ve been hearing about the car’s transformation to a “smartphone on four wheels,” and judging by what’s been on display in Detroit and Las Vegas, cars with the capabilities of a smartphone are the least of what’s ahead.

How Interconnection Is Driving the Automotive IoT Into New Markets

To keep up with the increasing magnitude and scale of IoT data that the automotive industry is generating, companies are beginning to leverage hybrid cloud models and harness global interconnection-oriented, colocation data center platforms.

Why Connected Cars Are Driving Companies Out to the Network Edge

The connected car of tomorrow is coming, and, frankly, it’s going

Emerging IoT Ecosystems: Matches Made in the Cloud

Many leading cloud providers and enterprises have begun offering entire IoT processing ecosystems to fulfill the gathering, transport, storage and analytical needs of just about any IoT player and developer.
