Developers are making it easier to get started.
Groupe PSA is implementing Track&Trace, a system that enables their shipping containers—inbound, from suppliers to factories—to be tracked over a digital network in real time.
Amazon is increasing its penetration into the auto industry not just through things like Alexa and its multi-million-dollar investment in EV developer Rivian, but also with its Amazon Web Services (AWS), which will be used for its “Volkswagen Industrial Cloud,” which will combine the data from all of the machinery and equipment in the company’s 122 facilities.
The latest wave of manufacturing execution systems takes advantage of the Internet of Things, leading to simpler and faster implementations and truly real-time data analysis, decision-making, and problem resolution.
The danger in Industrial Internet of Things technology is that data so conveniently shared can also be stolen or corrupted.
It’s called “MONET Technologies Corporation” and it is a joint venture company that is focused on “new mobility services,” a.k.a., “Mobility as a Service” (MaaS), services that will be initially rolled out in Japan starting in the next decade, including autonomous services.
Autonomous driving is one of those things that everyone has an opinion about but with which they have little first-hand experience.
Shanghai-based Envision Group is acquiring a controlling stake in Nissan Motor Co.’s Automotive Energy Supply Corp. (AESC), which supplies lithium-ion batteries for the carmaker’s electric vehicles.
Wind River Systems Inc.’s software for the Internet of Things is a natural fit for the auto industry’s move into advanced driver assist features and autonomous driving, says Peter Brown, chief automotive architect.
