Although electrification is beginning to show real promise, it still faces an uphill battle for certain regions, demographics, and use cases. This report assesses consumer attitudes towards EVs, understands the consumer concerns surrounding them, and outlines the best industry practices for increasing EV adoption.
As OEMs integrate more software-defined solutions into their vehicles, there is the potential for future vehicle architecture to be defined by the software it uses, and the platforms adopted from its ecosystem. The end goal is a software-defined car, a car that leverages software to reduce the cost of development, boost performance, and enhance the in-vehicle user experience. This
report identifies the software-defined car and outlines how OEMs can utilize platforms and services to build cars that can be continually updated, and progressively maintained, by cross-platform software.
The autonomous vehicle market is changing. With the introduction of higher levels of autonomy in passenger vehicles taking longer than hoped, the level of investment towards other use cases is gaining momentum. One of these use cases is the transportation of people and goods. This report explores the various opportunities OEMs have within this area, identifies the key technologies involved, and profiles key players in different regions.
As the automotive industry continues to develop increasingly intelligent autonomous vehicles, there is a need for direct communication between vehicles and their nearby infrastructure. Contextualized within a mature ADAS market, this report identifies the initial, and potential, use cases of V2X. It understands the landscape of this technology and outlines key strategies for OEMs planning to deploy it across major regions.
Despite progress in ADAS sensor technology, there is still no agreement within the automotive industry on the best combination of sensors to support different ADAS and automated features. Some players take a minimalist approach, which reduces costs, while others utilize a combination of sensors, which is more expensive but potentially more robust. This report provides a thorough overview of existing sensor technologies, identifies the different flavors within those technologies, and details their pros and cons. Each sensor is assessed on their suitability to autonomous technology in relation to their robustness, detection, and classification capabilities.
