Self-driving Cars Will Create 2 Petabytes Of Data, What Are The Big Data Opportunities For The Car Industry?

Self-driving Cars Will Create 2 Petabytes Of Data, What Are The Big Data Opportunities For The Car Industry? Earlier I showed how Ford is driving in the right direction with big data, but basically the entire automotive industry should take advantage of the benefits of big data. Especially the automotive industry, where there are many moving parts that can be improved with sensors for data collection. When sensors within cars are combined with data from satellite navigations such as TomTom and traffic... [Lire la suite]
