A developing vehicle is considered as the computer-on-wheel. The several resources availability is said to be as the significance of the efficient and effective utilization of the resources. The vision of the car manufacturing in the cloud computing is seen as the greatest development in the automobile industries. In this study, we offer a detailed survey of the manufacturing of car in the existing vehicular development in the research of cloud computing and various key problems of the manufacturing of car in the vehicular cloud like the applications which are potential, cloud architecture, manufacturing features, taxonomy applications. A user or the customer can get the services of the cloud fromthe data center of thefirst-tier or in the second-tiercloudlet. Compared to existing Internet cloud computing, the manufacturing of the vehicular cloud when compared to the internet of the cloud platform has various distinguishing characteristics(N. Liu, 2017).
The vehicular development of the car manufacturing communication based technologies, the industry of the automotive is mainly facing a great revolutionary change. In the present day, several smart cars are developed to the car drivers for regular use. A typical technology of the smart car is enhanced in several forms of the smart devices like the storage device of large space, computer on board, a global positioning system device, a transceiver of radio, a radar device of short-range in the rear collision, several devices for sensing the ability of the sensing the environment and the road conditions to guarantee of the safety of driving. Hence, the vehicle is said to be as the “computer on-wheels” technology. The cloud computing is the most attracting technology for the individual customers and company or organizations in order to move the services and data resources from remote to local servers of cloud. Many organizations like, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Google, and Dropbox which can be able to release the services of the infrastructure of the cloud which attracts the billion users in the cloud platform. It is proved that the cloud trend is becoming a pervasive and promising service which replaces the systems of the traditional type(Olariu, 2016).
The project of car manufacturing is planned to be performed on a weekly schedule, but the planning is done daily. The detailed project planning is divided into 4 week plan. The planning is done manually, but without the standards and methods. Some of the steps to be followed in the planning process is,
- Importing inventory, sales and data of production from the ERP

The working session of the overall project will be 28 days that is 4 weeks from the initial point of the project. The implementation phase will be take up to 5 days and if needed maintenance is done for 2 days.
In the pivotal phase of the project a discussion is to be conducted to explain clearly about what the requirements are gathered that is necessary for the project, and the implementation. The requirements that is gathered for the car manufacturer system includes the following(S.Arif, 2015).
The functional requirements of the car manufacturing application, is that which defines the basic functionalities of the system and is defined as follows.
In this basic functionality the user or the manufacturer will have his own roles and responsibilities.
The system approver of the project will view the required details and the workers of the particular car company.
In this functional requirement, the manufacture of the car uses his own identification and password to login to the system. He can have the access of viewing the details about all the vehicles.
The Non-functional requirements of the car manufacturer proposed project is as follows.
In this functionality, the user interface will be user friendly, and the user or the manufacturer will be very familiar to the system and it will be easy to use.
The system of the car manufacturer project should be able to offer the services needed at the exact time interval.
This functionality helps to meet the specific and required objectives and also the customer’s expectations.
The security is the important functionality, in which the user offers information and it should be authentic and the proposed system should be secured from external attacks.
Some of the common issues arises in the car manufacturing is listed below and the loud solution to resolve the problem is also explained.
Data breaches and its solutions
Data is the primary target of for any of the cyber based attacks the primary target is data, which defines the data loss impact and the business value of the organizations. The data protection aspects will have the techniques for encryption and accessibility which can be used for the data protection. Cloud service providers gives a robust and well-tested incident based response plan which can be considered as the privacy of the data laws in order to resolve the issue of data breaches.
Inadequate change and cloud configuration
The cloud-based resources configuration is said to be as the challenging one because of the dynamic nature and the high complexity. Companies and the organizations can now change from the traditional technology controls and also the management can be changed from the automation and the several methods is provided by the vendors of the cloud by the frequent scanning of the resources.
Security lack in cloud architecture and solution
The cloud security architecture should be developed in which it should be well aligned with the business goals and objectives. Organizations should be mainly focus on implementing and developing the framework of security architecture. The vendors of cloud help us to achieve the frequent visibility ensures the threat modelupdate.
After the completion of the overall analysis of the system, it is necessary to choose the required cloud platform based on the following services.
- Reliability of system
- Cost estimation
- Implementation of low cost
Based on the above services the implementation is decided to be done with the Microsoft azure cloud services.
Some of the technologies that are being used in the manufacturing of cars using the cloud technology are as follows.
The industry of the automobiles will produced several car manufacturers which may have various communication and computing hardware. In order to enable the vehicular cloud, we need to compulsorily abstract the hardware into a format in which they are transparent for the developers of the application. The technology of Virtualization can be able to abstract the resources of the heterogeneous type into uniform like the virtual machine, and then it can be used freely and also without the concern of the hardware details.
The technology of hybrid access includes the communications based on the V2V, 4G and Wi-Fi, offering the diversity of the access methods in the vehicular cloud with several capabilities of communication. The study based on the vehicular networks offers the solid technical reserves and the experience. The standard IEEE 802.11p is an accepted amendment over the IEEE standard of 802.11 in the vehicular environments. It in detail defines the development and advantages of the standard 802.11 based on the products that is marketed as the standard Wi-Fi that is need to support the system of intelligent transportation and its applications.
CHOICE OF DATA CENTER
Data center is mainly used for the project implementation of car manufacturer as to know who has the full access of the manufactured cars, and the developed hardware. Also, the users should know whether the selected services is suitable for the implementation and to work with the complex problems.
In vehicular platform of cloud, the manufacturer of cars can be a service providers for the enrichment of the services of cloud by offering several manufacturing informations like engine information, fuel efficiency, power of the particular car manufacturing in which the served customers will enjoy the internet which is centralized in the services of the internet of cloud.
