The automotive industry resembles a giant kraken (or a neural network), connecting to a raft of related economic sectors that are the source of everything necessary to make and sell passenger cars and heavy vehicles. Every single part of the pipeline, from concept development and the supply of raw materials to forwarding finished vehicles to a warehouse, must perfectly align. Suppliers must know where and when their resources are needed at the factory to support a seamless manufacturing process.

Usage Based Insurance (UBI) – the hottest sector in the insurance market

 

What do you know about recent trends in the insurance market? This market is extremely sensitive to developments and innovations in technology. This is why there is such unprecedented growth in insurance telematics programs in the usage based insurance sector.

Our world is extremely dynamic. Everything is evolving so quickly. Especially things closely associated with information technology. We are already used to cars that tell us how and where we should drive, so it’s no wonder that the next step of evolution is the driverless car. There is no doubt that autonomous driving vehicles will soon be a commercial reality.

 

Every year, the number of new driverless cars slowly increases. One way or another, modern technologies become more efficient and more exclusive, allowing car producers to create more independent, intelligent, and safer autonomous cars with various scanning devices. Which is better? Let’s see it in a LIDAR vs RADAR automotive comparison.

 

Most cars today are equipped with various sensors, including radar that is connected to cruise control system or sensors that can detect objects in blind spots. V2V (vehicle to vehicle) systems help drivers be more aware of their surroundings. These features improve safety without distracting the driver are taking control of the vehicle. It is the car’s sixth sense that notifies drivers about the road conditions ahead, drastically reducing traffic jams and collisions.

Most vehicle computer  systems work as black boxes, meaning they can show information about a hack but cannot prevent a hacking attempt. In order to avoid on-road chaos, self-driving car security systems need to be updated continuously. How can we make self-driving cars secure? In this article, we will highlight some of the primary security issues of vehicles fully controlled by computers according to research by top security experts.

Freight industry is another field of human activity in which up-to-date technologies are used to obtain better results at the lowest cost of funds, time and effort. That’s how the idea to develop a logistic app which would help shippers to find reliable carrier companies and truckers, book their shipments easily, track their cargos and control expenses appeared.

 

Information technologies reached into all spheres of our life and changed them beyond recognition. Well, who could have ever predicted that a regular phone will get rid of the wires and, then, become an indispensable mobile assistant, that can replace a dozen different devices? Something similar is happening with the cars now.
