Recall the last time you were behind the wheel of a vehicle. Let’s assume the best-case scenario: the road and weather conditions were smooth. Maybe your journey revealed ocean-coast vistas on a sunny day.
Still, another factor invariably loomed: unpredictability.
Because it is annoyingly impossible to know what’s literally around the corner, car manufacturers are focusing on developing tools that preempt and safeguard against the unforeseeable. And what makes your safety on the road possible given incomplete knowledge regarding a patch of black ice or a truck running a red light? Data.
Whether your vehicle is conventional, connected, or autonomous, a great deal of road-tested data is needed to make your travels safer. The more your vehicle can sense and anticipate, the safer the ride. Data is the fuel.
