From Quantified Self to Quantified Vehicles
Three trends have shown significant impact in recent years: (1) The Internet of Things (Wortmann and Flüchter 2015) has become an enabler for a connected world full of smart objects equipped with sensors and supplies enormous and still rising amounts of (2) Big Data (Schönberger and Cukier 2013), which can be analyzed and then turned into business value in various areas, including (3) the Quantified Self movement as a popular example for everyday life big data analytics (Swan 2009).
