Data provided by connected cars are enhancing customer experiences, centralising mobility operations and are beneficial to fleets, suppliers, insurers, dealers, OEMs and much more. With connected cars producing so much data for analysis by all stakeholders, there are a host of exciting prospects for connected car data.
Useful information about a vehicle is gathered using the vehicle’s ECUs (Electronic Control Units) and CANs (Controller Access Networks). This data is transmitted over the air using mobile data networks and onboard sim cards. Telematics systems connect via the cloud which allows remote connection to a vehicle from a central source. Using an app or browser-based program, organisations can monitor many vehicle attributes in real-time.
Aspects such as location, locking status, speed, fuel usage and engine status are some examples of car data that is collected. There are a host of use cases for this data, some of which are yet to be discovered. Examples include traffic and pollution reduction for cities, connected infrastructure, autonomous driving and insurance claims and many more.
2021 saw 237 million connected vehicles on the road. With this rising to 400 million by 2025, it will become an industry worth $121bn. The majority of vehicles are now connected to the internet in some form, and by 2030, this figure is only set to increase. With 96% of new vehicles having built-in connectivity.
With built-in technology now the norm, vehicle brands are using connected car data to provide an exclusive customer experience for their users. This data is accessible by an app, which allows access to limited functions.
High Mobility’s unique partnership with major brands allows a much wider scope of vehicle data collection. With our adherence to ISO 27001, GDPR and TISAX standards, our security measures allow greater experiences for our clients as vehicle data is safe.
Connected vehicles have a plethora of sensors, GPS trackers and module connections. Meaning vehicles can generate 30 terabytes of data per day when operating. A portion of this was sent over the air to central operations.
