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.

As part of our Universal Autonomy vision, our pioneering software already reduces the amount of data sharing that is required, allowing vehicles to operate wherever they are, with or without network connection. In fact, our software has been designed to operate not dependent on any infrastructure, so it can understand the vehicle’s environment in infinite detail. However, we fully recognize that in an autonomous world, fleets will need to upload and download vast amounts of data and the partnership with Cisco offers us the chance to solve one of the greatest data challenges of the future, already today
