Sep 17 14
Hitachi Data Systems Corporation announced a partnership with Clarion Corporation of America to jointly research and develop new data-driven solutions for deployment in the next generation of Clarion in-vehicle connectivity products. The collaboration will give drivers and manufacturers usable insights that will lead to improved auto performance and safety, increasing value across the burgeoning market for connected cars. It is expected that by 2020, 50 billion devices - smart physical objects - will be connected to each other and to humans using the Internet. IDC estimates 42% of all data will come from machines in that same timeframe. Together, Hitachi Data Systems and Clarion will further explore this data-driven side of in-vehicle connectivity to bring connected services to existing cars, trucks and fleets. This collaboration builds upon strengths of each company and aims to establish packaged solutions that obtain, correlate, and visualize onboard data (OBD) that will be available in nearly all automobiles. The 2 companies expect to formulate new physical and virtual solutions that bring added value to both the consumer and the manufacturer by providing more intelligent and enhanced onboard equipment, and by fostering a closer relationship between the provider and the end user. With a focus on safety, performance and value, Hitachi Data Systems and Clarion are looking at ways to innovate by correlating a variety of data streams to bring unique insights to the entire ecosystem. With enhanced infotainment and telematics services, drivers will be able to safely access new in-car services, such as weather and GPS data, to enable continued mobile connectivity even as models evolve. Ultimately these new M2M technologies and capabilities will enable connected cars to interact with their environments, sharing important information with and from connected cities.
