Internet of Things (IoT) refers to an integrated system that comprises machines, people, computing devices, and other devices that allow data sharing among them, over a defined network. As the automotive sector is observing a significant technological shift, automakers across the world are integrating this technology in their vehicle models. With the surging customer preference for a convenient driving experience and seamless connectivity, automobile manufacturers are increasingly incorporating the IoT technology in their offerings. Additionally, the burgeoning need for capturing real-time information by vehicle operators and users is also augmenting the adoption of this technology worldwide.
Besides, the increasing shift toward connected cars will also fuel the IoT in automotive market during 2020–2030. Connected cars have internet access and a wireless local area network (LAN), which facilitate the cars to share their information with various devices inside and outside the vehicles. As these cars are mostly dependent on the usage of IoT, the rising demand for connected cars will amplify the need for IoT solutions in the coming years.
