Data is Driving Automotive Innovation in Japan & Beyond

Data is Driving Automotive Innovation in Japan & Beyond Data Enabling ADAS, AI, ML and Autonomous Drive One of the most common themes at the show was advanced driver-assisted systems (ADAS). A multitude of exhibitors shared what they’re building for ADAS. As connected cars evolve to autonomous cars, ADAS requires a “brain” to operate at every step in the journey. Think of all the sensors both inside and outside of a car. The sensors are like human nerves that capture data then send it to the brain for processing. Data is... [Lire la suite]
