Autonomous cars to capture 4 terabytes of data every 8 hours of driving

"Big" data is selling it short. 4 TB of data for 8 hours of driving - given that autonomous cars will likely be driving most of their time instead of sitting there as dead material on some parking lot - is unimaginable. I never saw it from this perspective - and I don't know how much of this data can be processed via the onboard network, where performance can probably be solved easily - but if a good portion of this data has to make its way to the cloud and acted upon quickly, we might have a performance obstacle to overcome before the takeover of autonomous cars can take place.
