Vehicle-to-Cloud connectivity is opening up a vehicle’s internal resources such as data and functions to the outside world. This generates new opportunities by creating innovative customer services that enable new business models and technologies. However, current IoT technologies do not yet fully support automotive needs. This creates a window of opportunity for Eclipse IoT community to adapt, combine and extend their projects to cater to the technical needs of future automotive software ecosystems.
Based on real-world requirements this talk will sketch the architecture of an automotive-centric IoT ecosystem including technical challenges and key players. Within this architecture, we will suggest possible deployments of Eclipse IoT technologies and point out the gaps and shortcomings. The Eclipse Kuksa project has been established to address these challenges and enables the Eclipse IoT ecosystem to address the automotive domain.
We will present the implementation of one automotive IoT use case using Eclipse Kuksa and other Open Source projects. In this proof of concept, we implemented a closed-loop use case using telemetry data from a car and controlling vehicle functionality from a cloud service.
