What is a connected car?
The connected car uses the power of the Internet of Things (IoT) to deliver a range of new services, features and possibilities to drivers and their passengers.
Here are some examples:
Smart cars are connected to 4G networks and interact with the wider IoT ecosystem.
Adding connectivity to a car can enhance the driver’s experience by integrating real-time traffic information. The data is received by in-car eSIM. It may even extend to tailored marketing alerts of nearby places of interest based on personalized preferences.
Connectivity can also transform the passenger experience, from turning the car into its own Wi-Fi hotspot, or delivering streaming entertainment to personal devices.
Voice assistants are built into dashboards to keep connected to home and the digital workspace.
More advanced features could enable automatic adjustment of lighting and temperature to improve alertness, and aspects of autonomous driving.
