Connected Vehicle

Connected Vehicle

The future is here with connected vehicles. A connected vehicle (automobile) is equipped with internet access and its own local network. This enables the vehicle to share internet access with other devices both inside as well as outside the vehicle.

The most common discussions about the connected vehicle are around what they do for the consumer. However, manufacturers and their transportation service providers (truckers, railroads, etc) will also be able to 'connect' electronically to the vehicle to access data that will improve management of the vehicle supply chain. This data, like their location, battery life, longitude/latitude, etc. can be transmitted between partners as the vehicle moves through the supply chain to the dealer.

AIAG created the FVL Visibility Connected Vehicle Work Group to determine how the connected vehicle(s) will support logistics management - to improve processes and reduce management costs.

Comprised of OEM Management, the FVL Visibility Connected Vehicle Work Group is focused on creating standards that facilitate open source visibility and will benefit both the OEM and their transportation supply base. This group is leading the way in determining the hand-offs required from transportation providers and how the OEMs will interface with the connected vehicle.

*Please check back in the future as this work group will be opening up to service providers!
