Building a data pipeline inside and outside a vehicle

Submitted Jul 9, 2019

Ather 450 is a smart electric vehicle with data intensive features on the vehicle as well as on the cloud/mobile app.
On the vehicle, the on-board software uses the vehicle data to make decisions regarding the vehicle behaviour and safety, while giving some user delight features like auto-indicator.
Via the cloud, user has a mobile app using which the vehicle can be monitored and their ride statistics can be accessed. Data on the cloud is also processed for alerts, doing a root-cause analyses in case of vehicle issues and building towards a preventive maintenance system.
This is an overview of the data pipeline from the vehicle to the cloud database which enables this to happen.
