How transport software are changing with IoT

How transport software are changing with IoT

When IDC released its spending of the top industries spending heavily in adapting IoT-based solutions business processes, transportation comes second. The overall spending on IoT by transportation industry is $78 billion in 2016. While out of this $78 billion investment a majority ($55.9 billion to be exact) goes into freight monitoring. This means that even though a completely autonomous vehicle transportation is not lurking behind the door in 2017, the chances are, transporters will be looking forward to strengthening their transport software capabilities by including IoT-based features and inputs in it. Thus the transportation industry seems to be more interested in ramping up its functions first from the software level with minimum help from IoT devices such as sensors and iBeacon. This makes sense as it gives them an invasive strategy which is keeping high-end investments at the far end of the process by which the system would be able to get matured enough to understand the insights generated by IoT devices. So rather than fancy devices and cool gadgets, transportation industry will be looking forward to seeing more connected transport software which is capable of serving more promptly and efficiently.
