Connected Vehicles Will Require New Infrastructure to Deliver and Process Data
By 2025, 100 million connected vehicles will be transmitting 10 billion gigabytes of data per month. A new report by the Automotive Edge Computing Consortium offers insight into a cross-industry solution to meeting this demand.
As the number of connected vehicles in operation rises, the networks that deliver and process data will have to deal with “unprecedented and ever-increasing volumes of data from a rapidly moving vehicle,” a new white paper reports.
The Automotive Edge Computing Consortium (AECC) projects that by 2025 the number of connected vehicles will grow to about 100 million globally and the data volume transmitted between vehicles and the cloud will be about 10 exabytes — 10 billion gigabytes — of data per month.
The white paper published Wednesday (Sept. 22) by AECC, Distributed Computing in an AECC System, addresses distributed computing best practices for managing connected vehicles’ high data volumes. Among the companies represented on the AECC board of directors are Toyota, Intel, Ericsson, DENSO, Samsung, Dell-EMC, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) and KDDI Research.
