Cloud Telemetry To Make Vehicle Users Safer On The Roads

Cloud Telemetry to Make Vehicle Users Safer on the Roads

It might appear like rocket science, but black boxes that are usually the last sign of life after an air crash may be transmuting into automobile effects. These will be able to tell every practical detail of what happens prior to and in the aftermath of a collision. They will even supply all details pertaining to the occupants, whether they are alright or maimed. However, this comes after an accident occurs: what cloud computing is concentrating on now is to save a life before such an occurrence. Automakers are relying on telemetry, the science of using remote surveillance to encode data and alert the user about an impending mischance.

Terminals inside autos

Terminals have already come into the market from a Japanese maker of motorcycles, computer ware and automotives. They will help prepare drivers for possible collisions. These will have ultra-sensitive ware that will be able to give a median distance between the car ahead and the one behind. If it remotely discovers that either of the vehicles is about to experience a sharp halting, it will notify the follow-up driver of the impeding mischance and thus avert a crash. This may help to even overcome gridlock situations in traffic where vehicles overlap because they do not have space in-between to maneuver.

Telemetry in driving

The best example of how telemetry technology is affecting the auto industry through cloud computing is in auto tracking. In traditional set ups, owners of heavy commercial vehicles had to invest heavily on satellite dishes and interior hardware to help keep their vehicles safe. Nowadays, the equipment cost has reduced courtesy of remote satellite help. This advancement will aid operators of automobiles to determine where they are heading through terrestrial maps on a screen, whereas cameras are monitoring their actions throughout. If a collision occurs and the operator dies in the event, there may not even be a need of a postmortem because every detail attending the event will be available at a data center.

And in case of a collision

In the event that an accident has taken place, there will be sensors inside the automobile that will send signals to a human recipient. The latter will usually get the alarm from an action by a shock absorber whose inflation will relay a signal to a remote emergency center for evacuation. The servicemen who receive this alert will try to communicate with the victim or any other passengers and if this is impossible, connect to the data pockets (GPS) inside the vehicle to trace its physical station and thus send timely rescue. There are already advanced tools in the car industry that select telemetry companies are providing, to help shun unnecessary deaths on the roads. The machines are powerful enough to discover the identity of the casualties, together with their blood types for correct first aid attention.

Thus, cloud computing is making far-reaching changes that may come to affect the way drivers approach traffic situations. They will be now more wary, fearing that some machine is watching them, and if they are caught up in a crash, they can use voice mechanisms to send hands-free emergency alerts.

As a recap, here are the two most interesting examples of how cloud computing, via telemetry will add safety to the machines plying on the roads:

1. Airbags, artificial as they are, will be the saviors of drivers who have fainted in an accident situation by relaying signals to a rescue center.
2. Black boxes may no longer be prerogatives to airplanes: they may be coming to the terra firma.
