Driver assistance: Coming revolution

Driver assistance: Coming revolution   The three major trends of electrification, connectivity and autonomy all have software in common, according to Thomas Gage and Jonathan Morris from Marconi Pacific   We are on the threshold of a radical change in vehicle technology. No, it’s not automation, although that will come very soon. Instead, change is being driven by the underlying technology for automation that is already here and advancing rapidly; that is, crash avoidance technology delivered by advanced driver...

The foundational system challenges of the connected car

The foundational system challenges of the connected car What, precisely, is a ‘connected car’? Essentially, it can be defined as anything related to infotainment, telematics, ADAS, autonomous driving, cyber security, OTA, eHorizon, car2X, Cloud, and back-end. At the component level, the technology and software for the connected car and, specifically, for ADAS and autonomous driving, is becoming increasingly sophisticated and robust. But engineers working on algorithms and sensor fusion software still have plenty of work to do before... [Lire la suite]

Here's how A.I. is about to make your car really smart

Here's how A.I. is about to make your car really smart The number of intelligence (A.I.) systems used in infotainment and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) systems will jump from 7 million in 2015 to 122 million by 2025, according to a new IHS Technology report. IHS's Automotive Electronics Roadmap Report found the install rate of A.I.-based systems in new vehicles was just 8% in 2015, and the vast majority were focused on speech recognition, according to IHS. However, that number is forecast to rise to 109% in... [Lire la suite]
