The Internet of Things world is constantly expanding and every day new solutions are presented on the market in different sectors, it is no less the automotive industry that in recent years is investing numerous resources to find effective connected solutions.

The major investments in the automotive industry are aimed at safety and driving comfort, with particular regard to areas in constant development such as:

1. Predictive maintenance

Predictive maintenance in the automotive sector, as in the whole smart industry world, allows to reduce maintenance costs by increasing the efficiency and reliability of the plants.
Investing in this area, in fact, you can intervene before a failure occurs to the engine or a component that can compromise others by triggering a chain effect that could for example deprive the driver of his vehicle for days generating significant economic damage.

2. Improved connectivity

Today, the new generation cars allow you to connect and manage through voice commands sending e-mails or interacting with the applications on your smartphone in safety, ensuring greater comfort for the user.
All this is the result of years of research and development on which the automotive sector continues to invest to find new solutions that allow travelers to connect at any time and in total safety.

3. Car2Car connectivity

Car2Car technology is another area in which we invest a lot because it allows connected cars to exchange information on sudden and / or unexpected maneuvers with surrounding vehicles and to create cross-traffic patterns.
Through these technologies we try to reduce and prevent accidents so as to guarantee greater security to all users.

4. Implementation of solutions with artificial intelligence

Some car manufacturers have installed a series of sensors, optimized, which will allow the detection and analysis of the movements of the driver ensuring an increasingly deep interaction between the vehicle and the man.
The cars will in fact respond to the driver's needs mostly through a voice control system but if this results in inconvenient use, for example during a conversation, the driver can interact with the vehicle through the look or use of gestures, which will be picked up and processed by on-board sensors.

5. Monitoring and profiling of the driver

Vehicle manufacturers and insurance companies are collaborating in order to profile, with the use of sensors, the driver so as to propose more personalized insurance contracts based on the style of driving of the user who will increase or decrease the premiums based data collected, rewarding and promoting safer driving styles.
