much talk about how connected vehicles will prevent crashes, but there
is another aspects of the connected vehicle world that we often like to emphasize.
Anonymous data disseminated from connected vehicles will be collected
and used as the basis for a myriad of applications that will transform the
way we travel. This image shows the basic foundation of the data environment.
Aggregate data from cars, trucks, traffic signals, buses, weather sensors
and other sources is combined at a
central hub and is used to create data that is not only used for safety
warnings but can be the basis for mobility applications,
weather applications, transit applications and more that you can read
on your phone, on your dashboard, the tablet, home computer and other devices.
