Transport360 – Q2/2019 issue. Transport businesses already rising to major 21st Century challenges

transport 360

To date, the development of the car has been shaped by the meeting of human and Industry 3.0 machine. That’s all changing, however, as the next generation of automotive transport involves the interface of artificial intelligence, machine learning, cellular vehicle-to-vehicle (C-V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (C-V2X) communications, and predictive analytics, to name just a few technologies – and the wetware that is you and me. In fully autonomous vehicles we will be completely bypassed, but today road hauliers are already seeing major benefits (see page 5) from truckers learning to correct their own bad driving habits.

In the meantime, the transport industry – be it the haulage & logistics sectors or automotive – is adapting fast to the growing demands for an IoT network that meets 21st Century needs. In a fascinating, in-depth interview I had recently with the founder and head of WING Business at Nokia, Ankur Bhan described how his company is building a global alliance of partners to address automotive connectivity challenges. Starting on page 7 he explains that the days of reliance on roaming-based cellular connectivity are over, and that we need Nokia WING (Worldwide IoT Network Grid) to enable new infotainment services for car users, as well as additional revenue streams for automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

There is Breaking News on page 13 of a “first-of-its-kind” safety initiative being taken by no fewer than 11 companies in the automotive and mobility sectors. #TipsHat here to Aptiv, Audi, Baidu, BMW, Continental, Daimler, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, HERE, Infineon, Intel and Volkswagen who are jointly publishing “Safety First for Automated Driving,” (SaFAD), a non-binding organised framework for the development, testing and validation of safe automated passenger vehicles. Cross-industry initiatives like this have been thin on the ground until now so they are to be applauded.

We hope you enjoy these and other articles in the latest issue of IoT Now’s Transport360 magazine.
