Telematics and the road to holistic connectivity: vehicle information data transforms the driving experience.
Aided by positioning and short range technologies, the automotive industry quickly moves towards building vehicles enhancing safety, connectivity, autonomy, and compute power. These improvements transform the driving experience, making it safer and more pleasant to passengers. But achieving this is not an easy quest; it requires engineering expertise taking into account precise positioning for AD (Autonomous Driving) and exhaustive vehicle data coming from cellular and Wi-Fi technologies. It also requires an alignment among the ecosystem players, including automakers, logistic providers and even vehicle insurers. The holy grail would be an integral solution that could monitor the vehicle’s status, track its movements, analyze its surroundings, and exchange data with the cloud, other vehicles, and V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything infrastructure).
A solution of this kind thus requires the alignment of technologies such as wireless communication, positioning technology, sensing, and information processing. In the coming years, Wi-Fi will play a vital role in assembling communication technologies due to its financial viability. Location data, provided by a positioning solution, will be essential for emergency call services, different types of alerts, and other use cases requiring vehicle location data. In parallel, vehicle safety will improve due to the inclusion of V2X-related criteria for roads and highways. Finally, this comprehensive solution should consider a fully inclusive connected in-vehicle experience, a demand of today’s drivers and passengers who look forward to a car experience echoing the one offered by smartphones. In fact, by the end of the decade, around 95 per cent of vehicles worldwide will have access to built-in connectivity.
Over the past 25 years, u-blox has been developing high-precision positioning products integral for advanced OEM applications. Our cutting-edge Wi-Fi 6/6e products are at the stake of the transformation, helping the OEM telematics industry achieve its goals. These products provide wireless connectivity that enables secure, reliable, low-latency communication links for high-definition (HD) video streaming, in-vehicle networking and hotspot. Based on u-blox products, shaping the desired solution is possible.
