Registering and managing assets

Assets also define the related environmental data about drivers, map sources, and other things that are meaningful to the connected car ecosystem. IBM IoT Connected Vehicle Insights provides asset management capabilities for you to manage connected vehicles and drivers and the relationships between them. The Asset Management component uses IBM Maximo Asset Management to provide a central point and interfaces for administration.
