Whether in manufacturing operations or in the vehicles themselves, edge computing is conquering the IT infrastructure at every car company. Providers have taken note – and are already battling it out for air superiority.
Edge computing is set to grow in the automotive industry, both in the cars themselves and in manufacturing. Big players are investing in the technology as experts see sharp growth in market volume.
In 2025, market volume is expected to reach $3.24 billion. At the same time, edge computing is increasingly catching on in the auto industry. There are two distinct areas of application. One relates to all the in-vehicle computing operations, which are expanding rapidly with the rise of new generations of networked vehicles. And edge computing is making inroads into manufacturing operations, where growing concentrations of computing power are being moved as close to sensors as possible.
