With the explosion of IoT, connected devices are collecting more and more information through sensors, cameras, accelerometers, LiDAR, and depth sensors. Connected products are inherent in all kinds of industries from manufacturing to automotive, health tech, energy, utilities, and wearable tech. Aided by the convergence of AI and 5G, the quantity of data being collected is only expanding. It’s estimated that a fully autonomous car will encompass over 60 microprocessors and sensors and generate more than 300 terabytes of data per year. Or conversely, in an hour-long trip, up to 25GB of information will be sent to and from a connected vehicle (equivalent to about 100 hours of video).
