Abstract

Internet of Things technology has great potential to be integrated into the automotive industry. Cheap electronics systems such as the Raspberry Pi can be used to communicate GPS information between emergency and pedestrian vehicles. This information can be used to instruct pedestrian vehicles to pull over preemptively, decreasing the response time of emergency vehicles. Further, emergency vehicles can take advantage of cloud computing to give hospitals vitals data from a patient, such as their heart rate, breathing rate, or temperature in order to achieve a quicker diagnosis. This paper displays a proof of concept for this idea and a small-scale test for accuracy and latency of this communication, as well as many of the challenges in designing a project of this nature. At the conclusion of this paper, the reader should have a basic understanding of the process of implementation and obstacles this technology faces in the future.
