OpenRoaming unlocks solutions to the large data transfer challenge for autonomous vehicle fleets
Oxbotica, a global leader in autonomous vehicle software, and Cisco have announced a partnership. They aim to show how OpenRoaming can unlock the potential of fully-connected autonomous vehicle fleets, enabling secure sharing of high-volume data while on the move.
According to information, over 70 million new connected vehicles will enter the market annually by 2024. Each vehicle is required to upload and download 8.3GB of data per day, including HD navigation, vehicle telemetry as well as safety-critical information. By comparison, the average smartphone will contribute just a fifth of this daily volume.
OpenRoaming enables devices to automatically connect to trusted Wi-Fi hotspots and networks eliminating the need to enter usernames and passwords. It’s using embedded credentials issued by identity providers instead.
