IoT, 5G, and Blockchain Go Hand in Hand When it Comes to Connected Cars

February 04, 2019 / James Bourne

With the imminent arrival of millions of connected cars on the roads by 2020, each with embedded IoT sensors, cloud-based informatics, telematics, and infotainment systems; hundreds of terabytes of data will be being generated every second making data management and the security of that data, critical. Many smart car features are already being used such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), automated temperature control, and touch screen displays but in order to work, these different systems need to be able to communicate with each other in real-time. Each in-vehicle feature has distinct performance, reliability, and predictability requirements. Safety features for example, automatic airbag deployment is higher up the scale of crucial system requirement than comfort or convenience related systems, i.e. automatic temperature control, and must be able to rely on prompt data transfer. Therefore, vehicles today are embedded with multiple networks with varying data transmission...
