Something many haven’t considered yet are the huge amounts of data that will be generated from the influx of connected cars. What will automobile manufacturers do with this data? How will they organize and make sense of it? Data doesn’t do any good unless it’s being grouped for insight. That’s exactly the issue that Swedish auto manufacturer Volvo wants to solve. As a car company known for safety, they’re building safety into the top priorities of their new connected car data strategy. Their strategy will focus on minimizing failures of systems or mechanical features while detecting the functionality their customers want from their connected cars.
Volvo’s director of business intelligence, Jan Wassen, told Whir “We are trying to coordinate both creating and enabling tools for analytics, as well as making sure it is being triggered within areas where we should be active.”
