Vodafone Group and leading tyre maker Continental recently showcased a new type of automotive application for road safety features in connected cars powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) using Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC).
The Companies tap Netrounds for real-time testing and active monitoring, can assist in preventing thousands of road accidents every year. The application works when connected cars stream pre-processed sensor data over the mobile network to MEC cloud nodes for real-time analytics and instant decision-making processes. The application on edge cloud nodes applies AI algorithms to determine if an action is required. The end-to-end system is latency sensitive and relies on insight into network conditions as provided by Netrounds.
Netrounds programmable, active testing and monitoring solution allows service providers like Vodafone and large enterprise customers, like Continental, to automate assurance of the entire service lifecycle, from activation testing, to ongoing active monitoring and remote automated troubleshooting for when any issues arise.
