With the effects of technology, we started to shape our rapidly developing and changing lifestyles around sustainable concepts. So how will our vehicles, which are an indispensable part of our daily life, adapt to this change? The more it is produced, the greater the damage to nature. And the more we consume, the more we want to return to our essence which is nature. The rapid change of technology is one of the trends affecting the future of mobility. Connected vehicles offer a brighter and more sustainable future.

Connected Vehicle Technologies and Sustainability

22% of Greenhouse Gas Emissions come from the Transportation Sector

Connected vehicle technologies are reshaping transportation and mobility with driving and vehicle data. Although the primary purpose and added value of connected vehicle technologies are seen as increased safety and comfort at highways and providing a better and safer driving experience, this transformation also creates a valuable opportunity to increase energy efficiency and reduce our effect on nature, gives environmentally friendly energy consumption solutions to reduce gas emissions. The transportation sector directly creates 22% of global greenhouse gas emissions in 2010 [1].

In this sustainable development process, businesses have four main responsibilities;

1. Respecting social values
2. Economic benefit
3. Efficient use of resources
4. Protecting ecological balance. [2]
