The automotive cloud is typically associated with convenience features, and not safety critical applications which require split second responses using on-board computing power. Yet concepts born of cloud-based solutions—which can take advantage of enormous computing power, and quickly process large amounts of data—could clearly be leveraged for the purposes of safety, as a recently unveiled collaboration from Here Technologies, Vodaphone and Porsche aimed to underline: in June 2021, the three announced they had partnered on a real-time warning system that leverages 5G, vehicle sensors, artificial intelligence (AI) and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC).
