- The story usually goes something like this: cars won’t be able to send all the road data to the cloud if they need to make steering decisions in real time, so there will have to be an edge device.
- If the car is not connected, it will work, because there is no real-time requirement to stream that data to some distant cloud resource.
- If you are trying to intercept someone at precisely the time they need to make a decision, then having applications run locally based on data served up nearby makes perfect sense.
- If these sensors provide information critical in either driving real-time visibility (as with safety systems) or even real-time automatic controls, it makes perfect sense to host those applications locally.
- There might not be a heavy distribute sensor load, but building out the connectivity solutions as if there is will prepare you for more real-time IoT-type applications at some point in the future.
