///Tech Companies And Car Owners Looking For Solutions For Autonomous Cars

In order to implement the vision of the self-propelled car, Autobauer increasingly cooperates with tech companies. A newly established consortium of telecommunications, technology, and the auto manufacturer wants to drive the development of the necessary network infrastructure.

Take the hands of the steering wheel on the highway, drive through the roundabout with your eyes closed, or take a nap on the driver’s seat at the end of the day – autonomous cars are to make all this possible.

If it happens to some car manufacturers, then rather today than tomorrow. However, to make the dream of the self-propelled car come true, a mature infrastructure is essential for data exchange.

With a view to accelerating its expansion, a number of well-known companies from the telecommunications, engineering and automotive industries have now joined forces to form a new consortium.

The term “Automotive Edge Computing Consortium” cooperating companies Ericsson, Toyota, Intel, Nippon Telegraph, NTT Docomo and Japanese auto parts maker Denso to create the conditions for smart driving and real-time maps.

For Intel and Ericsson, it is not the first effort in the field. Both companies have been cooperating for some time with Autobauer BMW: Intel to develop new vehicles together with the miners and Ericsson to test the 5G technology on highways, The new merger will ensure the smooth communication between autonomous cars and the cloud.

According to the consortium, the consortium is committed to decentralized data processing. The network capacity is to be significantly increased by so-called edge computing.

Companies expect data traffic to increase by tens of thousands of today’s levels by 2025 between cloud and vehicle. This requires a new infrastructure for data centers and networks.

The focus of the consortium is also the use of mobile devices in the vehicle. To this end, application examples are to be developed, and corresponding companies are to be brought in for their implementation. The formation of the new initiative again illustrates how the development of autonomous cars is increasingly unifying industries that have hardly touched each other before.

In addition to Intel, the chip maker Nvidia, which is mainly known for its graphics cards, has been actively involved in the realization of intelligent cars since the beginning of the year. The company cooperates with Audi, VW, Daimler, Bosch, and ZF to provide processors for artificial intelligence.

The efforts of the “Automotive Edge Computing Consortium” are to show first results in the coming months. The consortium has not yet submitted a precise timetable for the planned network expansion.

    I agree that a very mature infrastructure is required for roads with fully autonomous cars to become a reality. I believe the major problem here is on how to create a network for all of these smart cars talking to each other which is extremely reliable with built in redundancies and fail-safes. Imagine if a network lag occurred and a couple of cars on different roads heading to the same intersection are not able to communicate that both of them intend to go straight! It could go very badly.

    A very insightful and timely expose highlighting the advances being experienced the world over because of the implementation and use of digital technology in areas traditionally perceived as being impossible users or implementers of Digital technology, the car as we know it. The concept of a smart city easily comes to mind when you think about autonomous cars. With the fast advances in digital technology and the many innovative startups littering the industrial, engineering and construction landscape, we expect but more and more conglomerates between traditionally incompatible enterprises in order to achieve maximum capacity and reap the benefits digital technology has to offer. This in turn will give rise to many individuals embracing the entrepreneurship spirit in order to meet the demand for certain skills and expertise needed. The current trend and shift towards cloud computing and the advantages offered by big data make it possible for the success of the Autonomous car. In reality, the future is now. Every day brings us closer to a smart city where autonomous cars will be an everyday occurrence.
