Big data can help finding parking spaces, avoid traffic jams, get instant help when emergencies happen. Megacity Rio de Janeiro is already using this technology by participating with IBM and Brazilian CSP Oi, among others. Tomorrow's motor vehicles will communicate with each other, with their drivers, their manufacturers, their surroundings, and with a variety of service providers. Data volumes related to vehicle usage are skyrocketing. Several German automakers have teamed up with Deutsche Telecom to find a solution in big data analytics. French CSP Orange recently participated in Traffic Zen with highway operator Autoroutes du Sud de la France to create traffic forecasts. Orange brings the quality and robustness of its mobile network to inform citizens and decision-makers, enhance information broadcasts, reduce CO2 emissions, and more. © 2013 IBM Corporation
