The automotive world is on the cusp of a transformative new era: the age of Software Defined Vehicles (SDVs). In this new epoch, vehicles will have customizable features and capabilities that can be remotely deployed by the vehicle manufacturers or OEMs via the cloud at any time throughout their entire life cycle, from pre to post-manufacture, without ever having to visit a service center.
That’s just the start. SDVs will enable manufacturers to glean data using “sensor fusion”. Constellations of synthetic sensors-small analytics applications that work on data or execute an algorithm-will work in unison to gather data, bolstered by the colossal computing might and bandwidth of data lakes, to elicit insights stakeholders can action by way of
