Driving with M2M

New cars are now using a lot of electronics and of machine to machine communication technology (M2M). The way of driving will be eventually modified accordingly.

The phone came into cars in 1946 with the studies performed by Western Electric and Bell Laboratories. General Motors broke ground in 1995, with the intervention of automated emergency, remote diagnosis and location of stolen vehicles. A wide avenue of research has been opened, the IPv6 standard opening the possibility of addressing all the facilities indefinitely.

Support for periodic maintenance and troubleshooting assistance are now present in all service centers in the form of softwares provided by the car industry. The car that made ​​its parking alone is a dream for all drivers. It exists, but the function is not transferable and you must purchase the vehicle when originally equipped. The road toll is easily adaptable to all vehicles and if there are misgivings, they fall under social factors. Can we go further and adjust vehicle insurance in the way of the driver? The complexity of the operation affraid the technicians, even if insurance companies see an opportunity for very convincing advertising slogans.

A significant potential market is emerging in the offices of study using embedded electronic solutions, either by aid ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) driving systems, anti-lock (ABS ) and stability control (ESP) wheels, braking autonomous emergency, the adaptive cruise control (ACC), or “Lane Keeping”, which indicates the crossing line of the vehicle driver, etc.

International regulations, at the initiative of ERA-GLONASS in Russia, Brazil Guntram 245 and eCall in Europe, should be imposed in most countries by 2015 to connect when needed cars to a regional automatic emergency call system. Moreover, the computer of the car, connected to the personal calendar will soon help the driver to book a hotel room, order flowers or a dinner reservation.

Ultimately, the research automakers are stimulated by the development potential that can make safer and friendlier car. The association agreement between NXPs Automotive On-board Platform (ATOP) and Telits is able to meet the engineering needs of the functionality needed to the creation of On-Board Units (OBU) for road, eCall pricing, and other services and applications certified or authenticated.
