Automotive Fusion Sensors: Introduction

  • Recent developments in the vehicle industry have led to modern vehicles being equipped with safety and drive assist systems, including Automated Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system, Driver Fatigue Monitoring (DFM) system, etc. Such systems continuously gather data through RADAR, LiDAR, cameras, and a combination of sensors incorporated within the vehicle. Automotive sensor fusion enables gathering data received through different channels, such as cameras, sensors, RADAR, LiDAR, and ultrasonic sound technology to calculate correct position and alignment information to perceive surroundings of the vehicle. Autonomous vehicles encompass ADAS, AEBS, ACC, FCWS, and DFMS ensuring safety of both passengers and driver, thereby propelling of the global fusion sensors market.

Key Drivers of Automotive Fusion Sensors Market

  • As per the European Commission, 25,600 people died in road accidents in 2016. In order to ensure public safety, various system manufactures and regulatory organizations have invested in developing safety features. For instance, automatic emergency braking system slows down and stops the vehicle automatically in case it senses some obstacle in the path of the vehicle. As per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 3,166 people were killed by distracted driving in 2017. In order to increase driver’s attention while driving a vehicle, OEM are incorporating driver assist systems and driver fatigue monitoring systems. These systems gather data and process it with the help of fusion sensors accurately in order to avoid collision, accidents, ensuring safety of passengers and drivers. The demand in safety features incorporating various electronic devices and equipment drives market for automotive fusion sensors.
  • As the autonomous vehicle technology is progressing from a simple driver assist technology to self-driving fully autonomous vehicles, driverless cars have become a reality. This increases personal safety, saves travelling time, and reduces transportation cost. Autonomous vehicles are connected IoT vehicles, which are powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Various systems are responsible for different features that are operated individually. The AI operates various systems simultaneously, generating new data continuously. All the data is only an input provided by cameras, sensors in vehicles, and in raw format that needs further processing for AI to make decisions. The demand for automotive fusion sensors can be attributed to continuous data processing by AI system for decision making.
