Automotive

Automakers are using high-speed wireless connectivity to bring sophisticated software and services to the vehicle. These IoT connections and the “Big Data” they generate can help OEMs continually improve their vehicles and develop new applications to enhance the driving experience.

Usage-Based Insurance

Telematics service providers are helping insurers write policies based on real driving behavior, instead of broad demographics like age, gender, or credit score. Accurate driving data helps insurers reduce fraud and losses due to claims and build stronger customer relationships. At the same time, IoT connectivity provides a platform for new in-vehicle services and business models.

Fleet Management

Modern fleet operators need open, secure, and scalable wireless communications to track vehicles and keep drivers connected. At the same time, governments and road authorities need more accurate assessment of driver and vehicle compliance to regulation and to electronic toll collection. IoT-enabled onboard systems allow fleets to improve efficiency, conserve fuel, and ensure compliance while providing authorities with the real-world data they need to improve public road and resource management.

Public Safety

The IoT is putting new tools in the hands and vehicles of law enforcement and first responders, so they can act faster and more effectively. Wireless computer-aided dispatch (CAD), in-vehicle network connectivity and body-worn connected devices bring timely information to help emergency medical responders, police and firefighters reduce response times and save more lives. Remote monitoring of non-violent offenders helps probation, parole, and corrections agencies work more efficiently to improve public safety.

Asset Tracking

Supply chains have gone global. IoT-enabled solutions for asset tracking are essential if companies want to maintain visibility and control over the movement of assets through their logistics network, from high-value cargo to transportation and heavy equipment. Remote asset tracking improves supply chain responsiveness and time-to-market, reduces theft, adds new revenue opportunities, and improves customer experience.

Transit

Transit authorities and public transportation operators worldwide are using the IoT to keep people moving. By connecting buses, trains and tramways with intelligent wireless connectivity, they can make transportation safer and more efficient, and provide a better passenger experience. Connected transit applications also help lower costs, conserve energy and enable new revenue-generating services.
