    Telematics - Automotive IoT, connected car modules face rapid growth

    Another interesting article on things to come...

    The market for connected car and automotive Internet of Things (IoT) technology is poised for growth, even as the federal government and different segments of the industry tussle over technology standards.

    According to a new report from Mobile Experts (Automotive IoT Devices 2016), the overall wireless IoT module shipments for automotive will triple from 200 million in 2015 to more than 600 million in 2021. There will be multiple radios used in each vehicle, and revenue from those modules will grow from $6 billion to $10.9 billion in 2021.

    Semiconductor shipments for automotive IoT will grow roughly $5 billion in 2021.

    The report covers telematics, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and IoT applications that use dedicated short range communications (DSRC), tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), and 4G/LTE wireless technology. It also explores usage based insurance (UBI) and proposed 5G wireless technology.

    The report also clarifies the difference between autonomous cars (which use sensors to control the vehicle) and connected cars, which use a mix of GSM, 3G, and LTE wireless networks to share data for maintenance and emergency communications.

    The industry and federal government also hope to see increased use of V2V and V2I technology in order to increase safety through having cars communicate road conditions and traffic hazards to each other automatically, with the vehicles responding to those conditions faster than the driver can.

    However, a proposed mandate for V2V technology that was first raised during the Obama administration is now on hold. It’s not clear exactly how the new administrators at the Department of Transportation will proceed.

    However, a proposed mandate for V2V technology that was first raised during the Obama administration is now on hold. It’s not clear exactly how the new administrators at the Department of Transportation will proceed.

    Because of this delay, any mandate will likely not affect production vehicles until 2021. That delay also will exacerbate the conflict between different stakeholders who would like to see different technologies mandated. The auto industry supports DSRC, while mobile/wireless technology companies are supporting either Wi-Fi 802.11ax or LTE-V systems.

    “A political battle is raging in the United States, with the auto industry pushing for the Federal Communications Commission and the Department of Transportation to adopt DSRC using 802.11p,” says Joe Madden, principal analyst at Mobile Experts. “However, the wireless industry – led by Qualcomm – is pushing for extension of Wi-Fi into the 5.8 GHz band and LTE for V2V communications. The outcome of this politicized decision will have far-reaching implications, as many other countries are waiting for the USA to make the first move.”

    Mobile Experts expects DSRC to ultimately win out because the technology is already proven and automakers are prepared to implement it in their vehicles. Switching to a different technology would delay implementation for years.

    “Manufacturers have done driving tests at every imaginable speed under all conditions, so even though DSRC is not as mature or sophisticated as LTE it is ready to be put into production,” Madden says. “If they decide to use LTE or even 5G, they would have to restart that 10-year testing cycle.”

    Madden doesn’t see a role for 5G in the car. In part, that’s because the actual technology specifications for 5G have yet to be defined. The technology will boost data rates and reliability, but no actual 5G devices or networks exist yet.

    LTE systems will support telematics, and 802.11p DSRC systems will handle V2V communications in many cases. According to the report: “While advanced car platforms will be gathering huge amounts of data, we conclude that 5G is far too expensive to be useful in uploading the entire data stream. Most of the data gathered by cars will be processed locally, with small bursts of data uploaded to the cloud instead of fire-hose data streams.”

    Madden thinks the V2V mandate will eventually go forward. “The auto companies prefer to move ahead with DSRC in the U.S. market, the testing is already done, they have products ready to go into production, and the manufacturers would like to go ahead with it,” Madden says. “Because of that, if auto industry lobbyists were to go to the Trump administration and push for it, there wouldn’t be any reason to not go forward with the mandate.”

    V2I systems are unlikely to expand beyond the pilot stage because of a lack of funding, coordination and interoperability.

    “[V2I] sounds like a great idea, but who will pay for it?” Madden says. “It’s likely there will be individual cities or state governments involved. Likely there will be some proactive cities doing this, but not that many. The number of roadside radio units deployed is going to be quite small, just in the thousands or tens of thousands per year.”

    Mobile Experts also expects to see new business models coming into the market with UBI, fleet management, infotainment and improved safety. “It's important to note that autonomous cars collect huge amounts of data. This analysis makes some predictions about what cars will do with that data, and how much will be shared over the network,” Madden says.

    UBI, toll collection and fleet management account for the majority of IoT modules on the market now. OEMs are also pressing forward with their own solutions, and a few insurance companies have made deals with GM and Ford to access their telematics data directly from embedded modems instead of the typical OBDII dongles.

    Another emerging application is the use of Bluetooth devices to monitor tire pressure, in part as a response to mandates in Europe.

    Ultimately, virtually every car sold will include a telematics mule. V2V will reach production levels of tens of millions per year, and nearly every new car will include a tire pressure monitoring system by 2021.

    However, that ubiquity will raise privacy and security issues that the industry and regulatory agencies are only now beginning to wrestle with.

    “The whole social issue of whether people accept the car tracking them, or the car taking over control of some operations, that still has to be proven,” Madden says. “You have lots of people who prefer to keep their own hands on the wheel. There are issues surrounding the privacy of information, and who can hack into the car. The legal issues aren’t settled about who can access the data.”

    I'd expect it to be a bit cramped for a guy your size. How about a nice Rabbit Diesel? If Wilt Chamberlain fits, you should too!

    I'm well under 6' 6", so I should have no problem with headroom:

    I've got a good one you can buy.

    The shipping might not be worth it, but I think the cars value just increased

    Fast growth fast death..........

    The lawsuits will end up stopping these things, because insurance companies won't underwrite at a certain point.

    Tesla stock plunges into bear market territory

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/topst...t5R&ocid=ientp

    What a difference a couple of weeks can make. After hitting an all-time high in late June, Tesla shares have collapsed 20 percent as of midday Thursday on mounting concerns about its sales results, competition and the safety of its cars.
    Traders consider a 20 percent decline from an all-time high the technical definition of a bear market move. The electric-car maker's stock fell 5,5 percent Thursday, bringing losses for the week to more than 14 percent.
    "Tesla's stock was pushed to ridiculous levels on the notion that the Model 3 would be a slam-dunk success," said Fred Hickey, editor of High Tech Strategist. The company's "$100,000+ models aren't selling as well and are piling up in inventory (the relatively small pool of potential buyers at these prices may be exhausted). This bubble stock is losing air rapidly, as it should."
    Multiple Wall Street firms including Goldman Sachs, Bernstein, KeyBanc Capital and Cowen expressed disappointment over Tesla's second-quarter delivery results in notes to clients the last two days.
    Goldman analyst David Tamberrino cited how Tesla's second-quarter deliveries number released Monday of approximately 22,000 cars missed his forecast of 23,500 and the Wall Street consensus of 24,200.
    Tesla cited a production issue with its 100 kilowatt-hour battery packs for the second-quarter deliveries shortfall.

    "Tesla's Q2 production and deliveries report raised more questions than answers, particularly about Model S and X demand," Bernstein's Toni Sacconaghi wrote in a note to clients Wednesday.
    After the weaker-than-expected deliveries number, Volvo announced Wednesday that it will phase out combustion engine-only cars. The automaker's new cars will be all electric or hybrid by 2019.
    "This announcement marks the end of the solely combustion engine-powered car," Volvo Cars Chief Executive Hakan Samuelsson said, according to a Reuters report.
    The Volvo news came after a Handelsblatt Global article last week, which said BMW plans to introduce an electric version of its popular 3-Series line of sedans later this year.
    In addition to the rising competition, one of the key selling points for Tesla's cars is now being called into doubt.
    On Thursday, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Dave Zuby questioned Tesla's claim that the Model S is the safest car in history after a series of new crash tests.
    "If you're looking for top-line safety, we believe there are other, better choices than the Model S," Zuby told CNBC.
    Tesla declined to comment on this story. Its shares are up 53 percent this year versus the S&P 500's 8.7 percent return through Wednesday.
    The company's market value is about $50.7 billion, which is now below General Motor's $52.7 billion, according to FactSet.
    Tesla CEO Elon Musk had bigger concerns than the company's falling stock price Thursday morning.

    self driving cars are inevitable. whether we like it or not.

    the only question is if/when they will become mandatory and to the exclusion of human controlled vehicles.

    The same will follow with aircraft, watercraft, and spacecraft.

    Nope not in the USA because insurance industry will end up refusing to underwrite it.
    Second the litigation that has yet to tear it to shreds is only about to commence.
    Third regulation will ultimately kill it.
    Four it breeds idiot's that know even less.
