A smarter way to drive

Today's cars are moving data centers with onboard sensors and computers that capture real-time information about the vehicle.

IBM IoT for Automotive extends the power of cognitive computing to connected vehicles to improve the in-car experience.

IoT for Automotive

An industry solution for connected vehicles that collects, analyzes, stores and takes action on vehicle sensor data. IoT for Automotive is a vehicle-to-cloud offering that enables awareness of the environment beyond the car and helps use information to establish a relationship with the driver, not just the vehicle.

Working in real time

Real-time feedback and optimization for drivers and fleet operators 

Can the driving experience be optimized without real-time information and insights? Connected vehicles offer high-speed, in-memory computing to enable real-time feedback to drivers so they can improve their performance.

Understanding its occupants

Understanding the driver and occupants to help them in their cars 

As drivers are 10 times more accident-prone when distracted by emotions, shouldn’t your car know your mood? Connected vehicles can detect driver behavior patterns from drifting, braking and accelerations that indicate potential danger. Coupled with data directly from car occupants this information can help vehicles keep you safer.

Connecting to engineers

Connecting engineers to improve vehicles throughout their lifecycle 

As technology lifecycles get shorter, shouldn’t a vehicle’s capabilities be regularly improved? Real-time data also provides information to engineers faster than traditional dealer processes for quicker issue resolution and less recalls. Drivers can get regular over-the-air updates to their cars, just as apps and software are updated.
