Ich habe hier schon mehrfach über Predictive Maintenance geschrieben, einen der spannendsten Use Cases für onlinefähige Fahrzeuge. Wie das im Zusammenspiel mit Händlern funktionieren kann, zeigt dieser Artikel.
The fact is, most electric cars are connected cars – connected through the Internet of Things. This means that sensors in the car constantly communicate with mission control (the manufacturer), sending data on the status of components in real time.
By analyzing this data, especially in context of historical data, mission control can predict component failure before it happens. For electric vehicles – with engines that already need far less repair than traditional internal combustion engines – this only increases reliability.
But what’s more, IoT-connected cars also increase convenience. For example, after realizing component failure is imminent, your car could also trigger a work order at the dealership to resolve the issue – and ensure the needed replacement part is in stock when you roll in. And if the car is autonomous, it could drive itself to be repaired while you are at work and return ready to drive you home once the repair is completed.
