Big Blue's new cloud-based solution is aimed at improving automotive data analysis and providing drivers real-time services.
IBM has launched a new cloud-based service specializing in connected car data in order to improve real-time services and data analysis.
Revealed on Tuesday, the New York-based firm said the new service, IBM's Internet of Things (IoT) for Automotive solution, will assist automakers in turning driver and vehicle data into something tangible and useful in the modern business realm.
Data collected from individual sensors -- including environment insights, driving patterns and vehicle condition -- as well as third-party information, such as traffic conditions and accident alerts, will be sent to the cloud and analyzed for the benefit of drivers and companies.
Big Blue says the service can transform data into "actionable insights" for vehicle maintenance, real-time diagnostics on engine trouble and guiding drivers to the most efficient traffic routes.
According to Telefonica's 2014 Connected Car Industry Report, the connected car -- a vehicle networked to the Internet in some way -- will achieve mass-market penetration in the next few years and the overall number of vehicles with built-in connectivity will increase from 10 percent of the overall market in 2014 to 90 percent by 2020.
As connected cars become mainstream, not only do automakers have to consider the security of their vehicles, but automakers have the opportunity to put data gathered by their vehicles to good use.
