David Poulsen, CutCableTodayâ€™s IT expert, says connected, or autonomous, vehicles, are attractive because of the technologies that undergird them. â€œThe Internet of Things (IoT) is one part of the equation,â€? Poulsen explains. â€œThe other part is artificial intelligence (AI). It acts as the driver, helping the connected â€˜thing,â€™ which could be a vehicle or inventory system, make smarter decisions.â€? As applied to transportation management, that automated decision-making ability is critical.
