On the edge of autonomy – how data requirements and regulations shape the future of automotive edge storage

Combined with growing computing capabilities, the rapid adoption of LIDAR, sensors, and camera modules brings advanced autonomous features to production-ready vehicles. As cars get smarter, the amount of data they produce grows exponentially. This data must be maintained, analyzed, and more importantly stored. And while the dream of 5G and cloud storage has vast potential, current autonomous driving regulations require that all the data must be stored inside the car. We discuss the future of edge storage, the requirements for data management, and the autonomous-driving regulations behind them.
