Gartner has recenty predicted that by 2020, a corporate “no-cloud” policy will be as rare as a “no-internet” policy is today. CIOs will increasingly leverage a multitude of cloud computing providers across the entire IT stack to enable a huge variety of use cases and meet the requirements of their business unit peers. Indeed, the tides are shifting toward a “cloud-first” or even “cloud-only” policy...

Cloud Could Easily Be The Next Big Memory Option For Trim Automated Auto Interiors

Cloud Could Easily Be The Next Big Memory Option for Trim Automated Auto Interiors

Hitherto, a typical car has been full of paraphernalia in the driver’s seat. There have been more than a dozen buttons to hit for various initializations. The radio multimedia alone accounts for twenty such buttons. This is all in the name of storing data within a few square feet trapezium that the front seat occupies. Things are changing, however, courtesy of cloud computing. It will now be possible to enjoy everything data handling has to offer and still stay on the posh front seat of a trim car.

The minimalist technology

The essence of cloud computing in the auto industry, as in any other niches, is to create remote connections. Servers in physical locales supplement the minimal disk space inside the vehicle. This is all courtesy of minimalist or nanotechnology. If it is a radio that one wants to tune to, he or she need not install big multimedia systems inside the vehicle. The tiny computer will do that conveniently courtesy of its touch-screen technology. If one wants to visit the nearest marketplace to compare deals about accessories like tires and gear boxes, there is no easier way than using the Internet device right inside the vehicle.

Nanotechnology has advanced to such an extent that some of the best known vehicle manufacturers are installing the systems. They are acknowledging the role of cloud computing to de-clutter the front seat.

Automated intelligence & handling business in transit

Who thought that robotics would one day control the auto industry? That is exactly what cloud computing is doing to the auto industry. It is now possible to use artificial intelligence to instruct the automobile to set particulars such as interior atmosphere minutes before the driver embarks. This means that the computerized system in the automotive will be sensing the time that the departure is imminent whereby it will be lowering or raising the temperature degrees as preset by the owner. The driver can also use a remote to cool the vehicle manually.

What is even better is gaining control of all the places that matter to a car owner at once. He or she will be able to work away from the office, arrange an auction far away from home, and even attend a conference while driving. This is the vision that cloud computing networks are having for the busybodies out there.

The practical side: memory

It is easy to perform all these incredible fetes courtesy of the memory that remote servers provide. Instead of carrying memory sticks and even laptops to the vehicle, a remote machine will be entrusted with the data. It will have all the latest programs so there is no need to be jittery about lack of compatibility with the small screen in the vehicle. Indeed, cloud systems everywhere offer infrastructure as a service (IaaS). This means that every integral part of data exchange is available from the provider. Unlimited memory is one of these, so is syncing programs.

There are many things that cloud computing will soon enable drivers to accomplish inside their now-trim cars. They range from enjoying stats without downloading them, preheating their interiors and watching videos in traffic. Need one add that the vehicle will be a residence and office in transit? Some firms are already integrating the systems inside their latest models.
