Connected Cars An Evolving Part Of Our Internet Of Things - IoT

One of the earliest versions of vehicle telematics systems was OnStar, introduced by General Motors in the mid-1990s. It was connected to various vehicle sensors and had a wireless data modem, replete with a backup battery, and of course GPS. In the event of a crash or accident, as determined by one of the vehicle’s sensors, the vehicle telematics system would transmit the information to an OnStar contact centre, at which point a call centre specialist would contact the driver/occupants through the telematics system to find out more about the accident (and also reassure them that help was on the way). Simultaneously, an emergency services call (similar to 911 in the USA) would be made by the call center, relaying the location of the vehicle.
