The Internet of Vehicles - Connected Cars

Traditionally, technology initiatives in the automotive industry have tended to be highly fragmented, with car makers favoring proprietary technology and in-house development to retain as much competitive advantage as possible. But that approach is quickly becoming obsolete in the new connected car era. 

We’re fast moving towards a time when every car will become connected, with warning sensors, road hazard detections, and vehicle-to-pedestrian communication all make for a safer driving experience. 

It is now forecast that the number of IoT connected devices will reach 64B by 2025, up from 10 billion in 2018. It empowers physical objects with the ability to communicate and interact with each other. The IoV market, valued at $66,075 million in 2017, is forecasted to reach $208,107 million by 2024.

The Internet of Vehicle (IoV) field allows vehicles to communicate with drivers, other vehicles, management systems, pedestrians, other smart devices, and infrastructure, all in real-time. It is the implementation of IoT technologies in vehicles. The IoV is a network that interconnects pedestrians, cars, and parts of urban infrastructure. It uses various sensors, software, in-built hardware, and types of connection to enable reliable and continuous communication. 

As a part of a Smart City, IoV strives to make transportation more autonomous, safe, fast, and efficient, reducing resource waste and detrimental impacts on the environment.

Vehicles in IoV system are equipped with different sensors that collect different types of data and send it to computation unit for computation and analysis. There are improved safety factors related to both drivers and pedestrians that stem from this technology.

The exhilarating vision of the driving experience of the near future includes augmented reality dashboards, progressively more autonomous operations, and increased integration with the outside world, from interacting with smart home devices to automatically finding parking spots nearby. 

However, cyber security in IoV becomes of major importance as any system failure directly affects user safety.

The reason for this growth can be attributed to rising demands, improvements, and vast upgrades in the automotive industry, the increase in connected devices, and the introduction of Logistics 4.0, the use of machine-to-machine communication and IoT devices to create smart factories. The electronics used for that include infotainment systems, sensors, brakes, and GPS. There’s a clear need for better communication and interconnectivity between vehicles. 

With this new technology the vehicle can communicate with itself first, which results in an internal performance review. The vehicle can also communicate with other vehicles through wireless communication, capturing information such as each vehicle’s speed and position. 

Combined, these systems are referred to as Vehicle-to-Everything. Vehicle-to-everything technology aids in decreasing traffic accidents caused by human error.
