The future of the cloud goes far beyond what you thought
The arrival of the cloud was felt at the time, but this still does not stop surprising us because it has been rapidly transforming. It is expected that by mid-2019, the e.GO Mover autonomous bus will take to the streets in Germany. The vehicle with electric motor can carry up to 10 people, with a battery that lasts approximately 10 hours. And it’s driven by the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
The concept was presented by ZF CEO Wolf-Henning Scheider and e.Go CEO, Dr. Günther Schuh. Schuh considers that there is an immediate need for a vehicle of this type in the market. “We have to cover three revolutions at a time,” he said, citing “traffic in cities, reducing carbon and reducing poisonous NOx.”
Google Cloud Platform also lists the best practices for building a connected vehicle solution for autonomous driving and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication also on your platform.
The growth of such a trend is achieved thanks to the availability of powerful artificial intelligence tools in these cloud platforms. Machine learning tools are crucial to the development of such systems, and the public cloud giants make them much more accessible. This also helps the growth of IoT general projects – i digital connection of everyday objects with the Internet – in smart cities.
Of course, the cloud alone will not be able to fully push the digital transformation of smart cities. Time delays within the network can be improved through the next generation of 5G connectivity, since autonomous vehicles and IoT devices can send and receive important data more easily while operating.
