One of the factors that’s turning this concept into a reality is ubiquitous connectivity. The rise of 4G LTE and emerging 5G networks enable new scenarios for the connected vehicles. Automobile manufacturers are partnering with telecom companies to bring connectivity to their vehicles.

The scenario of connected vehicles is an ultimate use case of IoT, where multiple vehicles interact with each other while coordinating with the road infrastructure like the traffic signals. They can send real-time alerts to the service center about the condition of your car.

Keeping aside the hype created by the industry players, Connected Cars do offer value to customers.
