Breaking Down the Barriers to Automotive Edge Adoption
The advent of edge computing creates a world of new opportunities for the connected device, telecommunications, and data handling industries over the next 3-10 years. Edge technology will enable ultra-low latency that is critical to providing real-time remote control of devices in industries such as healthcare and manufacturing. Today, it is unclear to many in the automotive industry how connected vehicles can benefit from this step-change in off-board computation.
Edge computing offers the chance to process more data near the vehicle instead of constantly shipping it to a central cloud facility. But, for an industry where always-on connectivity is still fairly new, edge computing presents questions like:
• Doesn’t 5G give us all these advantages already? (Spoiler – no, 5G alone does not.)
• With processing and data handling facilities embedded in the cellular network, can vehicles benefit from more than just faster communications?
• Do vehicle manufacturers and suppliers even need to worry about edge computing, since it is a change in the off-board architecture?
• What problems can edge computing help the industry solve – and what problems could it introduce?
In this webinar, SBD Automotive’s Kurt Dusterhoff will address these questions with a panel of experts from the Automotive Edge Computing Consortium (AECC).
AECC Board members Roger Berg (DENSO), Christer Boberg (Ericsson), and Said Tabet (Dell) will offer their insights into why edge computing matters for connected cars, how the automotive industry will benefit from better understanding it, and the technology challenges that still need to be solved.
