The car industry is one of the world’s largest industries and one of the most rapidly digitized sectors. As a result, it has been able to design more sustainable, efficient and personalized vehicles that adapt to the needs of their customers.

Thanks to the application of the Internet of Things (IoT), they can challenge design standards by improving comfort. Data collection enables this industry to come up with new ideas and improve manufacturing. Connected vehicles will be capable of receiving information in real time, about the conditions on the road and the environment, and they will help drivers choose the best routes to their destination. One of the most important aspects of sensing technology is that it has made it possible to perform predictive maintenance. Predictive maintenance involves analysing data on the status and performance of the car, applying data processing algorithms, identify anomalies and making repairs before they become complex.

The global worth of IoT in the car industry is expected to reach USD 183.72 billion by 2026. Connected cars won’t stop there, they will keep surprising us with an increasingly better user experience. The goal of this industry for the future is total reinvent itself in terms of manufacturing and the level of vehicle autonomy. Great advances are being made in this direction, but we still have a long way to go.

For the car sector to be able to continue its progress in the area of disruptive technologies, there must be specialists capable of making ideal use of connected devices. The Master’s Degree in The Internet of Things offered by the Bisite Research Group and the University of Salamanca, will prepare students to take on and coordinate projects oriented to this and other types of industries. Students taking this degree will have the opportunity to do internships at companies that collaborate with the Digital Innovation Hub.
