An Internet of vehicles: Moving terabytes of data between vehicles and the cloud


With the increasing demand for the continuous connectivity on the move, the way we look at the Internet is changing. Vehicles are now becoming smarter with the increasing number of built-in sensors and high demand for the ability to move data between vehicles and the cloud. The vehicle sets the pinnacle of that transformation, by generating 4 terabytes of data per day and being a key enabler of new mobility-on-demand services that will change the way we live our lives every day. Veniam is building a V2X (vehicle-to-everything) platform that is able to move terabytes of data between vehicles (V2V) and vehicles and the cloud (V2C). Cars can now do more than carrying people and goods from point A to point B and become active nodes of the Internet, a new one, an Internet of Moving Things.
