In the event of an accident or breakdown, alerts along with the car’s position will be sent to the nearest authority. As of now this facility is available with the top models only but the day is not far when it would be made mandatory for cars of all categories.

Extension of Transport Management
Extension of transport management with the help of M2M technology has been made possible.

However, this perception has been changed with various smart devices being extend for general use to the public. For instance, if you wish to track your fitness levels then you can use gadgets that would store all vital data pertaining to your health and in case of any abnormalities send alert to your doctor and concerned individuals. New devices are being developed and introduced in the market that would do a world of good to the consumers.
