Definition

A connected car is a car that is equipped with Internet access, and usually also with a wireless local area network. This allows the car to share internet access to other devices both inside as outside the vehicle. Often, the car is also outfitted with special technologies that tap into the internet access or wireless LAN and provide additional benefits to the driver. Examples include: automatic notification of crashes, notification of speeding and safety alerts.

"connected cars will increasingly offer many safety and convenience benefits to consumers. For example, sensors on a car can notify drivers of dangerous road conditions, and software updates can occur wirelessly, obviating the need for consumers to visit the dealership. Connected cars also can 'offer real-time vehicle diagnostics to drivers and service facilities; Internet radio; navigation, weather, and traffic information; automatic alerts to first responders when airbags are deployed; and smartphone control of the starter and other aspects of the car.' In the future, cars will even drive themselves."[1]
