"connected cars" articles

The market for consumer electronics products and services is increasingly competitive. As brands seek to achieve and maintain competitive advantage, many recognize the importance of intuitive user interfaces and ample support. This need is born out of the desire to reduce consumer effort as brands recognize the connection between low customer effort and low brand loyalty. The use of augmented reality (AR) is one of the latest attempts to leverage new technologies towards this end....
Blog submitted by Thomas Rockmann, VP Connected Home at Deutsche Telekom The connected car market is arguably one of the most far reaching and dynamic markets of our times. While technology moves incredibly rapidly across all sectors, increasingly connected cars promise to change firstly the way we travel, and as a result the cities and homes we will live in.

IoT Peggy Smedley kindly invited me to join her show this week as she focuses on IoT and Transportation this month, particularly in regards to distracted driving. Listen to the full interview. Parks Associates research shows that 92% of U.S. car owners perform activities that require mobile or Internet connection while driving , and more than 60% do so routinely. These activities include making calls, accessing maps,...
Uber announced plans to debut a flying car network, called Uber Elevate, in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and Dubai by 2020. Parks Associates is based in Dallas, and I can’t believe our good luck at having been chosen to be on the forefront of this effort. Still, let’s assess the reality. First, Uber’s “flying car” is a misnomer. The initiative is designed to launch electric or hybrid aircrafts that take off and land vertically and are designed to fly short ranges....

The 21st-annual  event  will be held on May 23-25, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Airport in San Francisco and...
Many autonomous car developers use multiple sensors in their test cars—optical sensors, radars, LiDAR, and ultrasonic sensors. Each sensor has advantages over others. Optical sensors can detect lane markings and changing traffic lights. Radar can travel under vehicles in order to detect objects that would be obscured by other cars, and radar performs well in rain and complete darkness. LiDAR can, more accurately than other sensors, detect the presence of objects to create a 3D map with...

Almost everyone in the autonomous car industry thinks autonomous cars will make us safer. Those who present on autonomous cars repeat the stats: 1.2 million people worldwide die every year in car collisions, and in America alone there are 33,000 collision-caused deaths each year. 94% of those collisions involve human error. Autonomous cars can eliminate a significant number of those fatalities. Even after a Florida driver was involved in a fatal Tesla crash while using the car’s...
