A forward collision warning system is an active safety feature that warns a driver in the event of imminent frontal collision. When the vehicle comes too close to another vehicle in front of it, a visual and audible signal occurs to alert the driver to the situation. It is also known as pre-crash system or collision mitigation system. It utilized radar and sometimes laser (LIDAR) and camera to detect an imminent crash.
Demand for forward collision warning system is rising due to the increasing concern of society toward safety and forward collision system comes by default in the autonomous vehicles. The forward collision warning system market is estimated to expand at a remarkable pace due the automation of the automotive industry. Several automotive manufacturers are providing this feature even in small segmented cars in order to reduce the number of road accidents.
The forward collision warning system market can be segmented based on the warning systems used, reaction of the warning system, placement of the system in the vehicle, type of manufacturer, type of the vehicle, and region.
Based on the warning system used, the forward collision system market can be categorized into radar, LIDAR, and camera. In a radar warning system (Radio detection and ranging) technology, radio waves are used to measure the distance from the other vehicle or any hurdle in the way. In LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology, a laser emits an infrared laser beam from the hood of the vehicle, which reflects off another vehicle and allows the distance between the two vehicles to be measured. Camera warning systems work differently than radar and laser warning systems. Instead of relying on Doppler Shift readings or reflections, this forward collision warning system has a camera mounted on the front of the vehicle and an electronic image-processor. The camera and image-processor are used to determine the risk of frontal collision.
In terms of reaction of the system, the forward collision warning system market can be categorized into three types on the basis of the reaction of the system as warning and preparing brakes, warning and autonomous braking, and autonomous braking. The first type of reaction system issues a warning and prepares the braking system to provide maximum stopping power the moment the driver presses the brake pedal. This type of system does not autonomously apply the brakes. The second type of reaction system is estimated to warn the driver and autonomously apply the brakes in order to slow the vehicle prior to impact or to stop a vehicle and prevent an impact. These systems first warn the driver and prepare the brakes for full stopping power, and then, if the driver fails to respond to the warning, they will try to slow or stop the vehicle without driver input. The third type of reaction system autonomously brakes the car without first warning the driver. It first identifies the potential for a collision, and then readies the braking system to deliver maximum stopping power when the driver reacts. If the driver does nothing, however, the system autonomously engages the vehicle’s brakes.
Based on the type of vehicle, the forward collision warning system market can be segmented into passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle. The passenger vehicle segment is further sub-segmented into hatchback, sedan, and multi utility vehicle (MUV). The commercial vehicle segment is further sub-segmented into light commercial vehicle (LCV) and heavy commercial vehicle (HCV).
In terms of region, the forward collision warning system market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America and Europe dominate the global forward collision warning system market due to the increasing concerns about safety and the presence of advanced technologies in the regions. Asia Pacific is an emerging market for the forward collision system.
Key manufacturers operating in the forward collision warning system market are Delphi Automotive LLP, Velodyne LiDAR Inc., Gentex Corporation, ZF Friedrichshafen, Continental AG, and Denso Corporation.
