This is the perfect example of a personalized driving experience. How connected car technology and self-driven cars can enhance the driving experience with IoT, is the future. Have a look at a few other smart wonders!
IoT or Internet of Things can make a difference in the new-age car driving experience. The idea of a smart car or connected car is a surreal experience. Imagine that your car suggests alternative faster route to reach your destination, or your car finds a suitable place for parking and you get the notification of available parking space, reminds you the events from google calendars, books your restaurant, shows the nearest fuel stations, or it keeps track of car maintenance, temperature controller, or in case of an emergency, the connected car is able to automatically send the location and status to emergency services. European nations introduced this e-call technology as connected car technology to save lives in car accidents from 2018.

Optimizing your driving map route and parking space are just a few things. Planning for anniversary dinner, you can ask your smartphone to book a restaurant booking and your car will take you there with the shortest and less congested route.

There are two more aspects which can be achieved with help of big data. Marketers can design their marketing and advertising campaign accordingly and tap the target audience on granular levels by using the consumer behavior trend. Marketers can set location enabled advertisement. The big data and connected car solutions can also synchronize with FinTech for insurance.

The entire ecosystem will be interconnected on the cloud level when a car enabled with IoT and, smart car app, mobile device, smart home, service center, Infotainment Services and emergency service provider can give a better driving experience, improved efficiency, and increased safety standard. The day is not far when your car will do all the work for you!
