As we move closer towards autonomous vehicles, our cars will need to be fitted with a range of sensors designed to substitute the eyes, ears, tactile senses and situational awareness of the human driver. All these sensors will generate massive amounts of data that need to be communicated to other vehicles and the road infrastructure network. The vehicle will also need to process a huge amount of incoming data assimilated from other vehicles, road sensors and the cloud. This data must be communicated in real time to allow vehicles to make the split-second decisions that will ensure passenger safety, says Vishnu Sundaram, VP, Telematics Business Unit, HARMAN International.
