Internet of Things (M2M)
Increasingly, machines are gaining intelligence and working independently. The car that used to be a basic means of transport 10 years ago, is becoming a fully networked intelligent transport with smart sensors and decision control. Like automated emergency breaking or evasive manoeuvres, which are now machine controlled.
Consequently, machine-to-machine communications are turning existing business models upside down. They are creating entirely new business opportunities. For telecoms operators this includes completely new markets – across many sectors from insurance to Intelligent Transport Systems, Energy, Healthcare and more.
Two-way communication between machines makes it possible to remotely monitor, control and manage assets in the field. At the same time automated data collection reduces costs. For example, the smart meter that shows the householder his energy consumption, so he uses less at peak times. This can also become the central gateway to home automation and remote management. Car telematics to improve fuel efficiency can be used for many other activities, from automated emergency calls to real-time emission-based car taxes or fees.
