Digitalization of transportation

Digitalization of transportation started decades ago, and IoT in transportation is already a big business, and it is still growing. By applying IoT technologies, many isolated systems are connected, companies and transportation authorities share data and make new services possible. Individuals and organizations all benefit from this technological advancement. Yet, the potential of IoT in Transportation is not fully exploited.

Benefits of IoT for transportation

IoT technology brings together isolated systems, exchanges data in real-time, and provides insights to transportation participants. It improves traveler experience, increases safety, and improves operational performance. All these benefits are based on IoT technology that collects and processes massive data efficiently in real-time at a low cost, which is impossible with the traditional Internet.

The future and the challenges

The potential of IoT is enormous. The IoT, combined with other technologies, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, roadside sensor networks, and 5G MEC, incubates new applications. The next upsurge to change our life could be in autonomous driving, smart fleet management, or predictive maintenance. EMQ works with its partners closely and will continuously invest in IoT in transportation.


Connecting large amount of various devices

In a transportation economic system, various devices are involved. A thermometer on the roadside and a GPS tracker on the truck may use different communication protocols and send messages in different patterns. EMQ interconnects road-side infrastructure, MMW radar, laser radar, and MEC to support CVIS applications. It coordinates the roadside infrastructure, in-vehicle units at edge, applications in the cloud, and powers the information exchange.

Connecting large amount of various devices

Efficient IoT data processing

EMQ provides infrastructure software for IoT that can connect 10-million level devices. It collects data from massive amounts of connected devices in real-time, processes data via a rule engine, and bridges data to backend services and storage in a unified way. With EMQ providing the infrastructure, the transportation industry can focus on business application development.

Efficient IoT data processing

Efficient and flexible edge-cloud data channel

The transportation industry requires large data volumes to be transmitted with low latency. Through light-weight edge side deployment, EMQ’s localized data processing and edge-cloud collaboration solution realizes high real-time response. The edge-side data streaming processing reduces the edge-cloud data transfer cost. The solution is flexible and extensible and it can be integrated with edge-side AI inference and decision making. This realizes the transformation from traditional manufacturing to smart manufacturing.

Efficient and flexible edge-cloud data channel


Flexible products combination

EMQ’s capability covers device connection, data collection, data processing, data transmission, and data interfaces to third-party components. Its flexible product combinations simplify the industry to provide end-to-end solutions to users and make it possible to rapidly develop and launch new services.

High performance and high concurrency

In the transportation industry, enormous devices are interconnected and generate data constantly, some with very high frequency. The high-concurrency and high-throughput access capability of EMQ provides a stable connection guarantee for a large number of devices to be connected simultaneously.

EMQ is experienced

EMQ is one of the first companies to offer MQTT and IoT infrastructure software. It serves many leading transportation and logistics enterprises, provides solutions for diverse use cases, and accumulated valuable experiences in handling large-scale, complex, and distributed projects. With EMQ, you are in good hands.
