The applications of the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies connect multiple devices directly and through the Internet. Autonomous vehicles utilise connectivity when updating their algorithms based on user data, interact with the infrastructure to get environmental information, communicate with other vehicles. They exchange information with pedestrians using mobile devices and wearables and provide information about the traffic attributes and data collected by the vehicle sensors. The connected and automated vehicles (CAV) require a significant quantity of collecting and processing data and through IoT applications and services the autonomous vehicles share information about the road, the present path, traffic, and how to navigate around different obstacles. This information can be shared between IoT connected vehicles and uploaded wirelessly to the cloud or/and edge system to be analysed and operated improving the levels of automation and the autonomous driving (AD) functions of each vehicle. This chapter gives an overview of the integration of IoT devices contributing to automated/autonomous driving, and the IoT infrastructure deployed and seamlessly integrated into the AUTOPILOT project use cases and pilot demonstrators, including the IoT platforms integration.
