As cars and other vehicles join the Internet of Things (IoT) and edge closer towards full connectivity, it’s worth standing back and taking a good look at what that will actually mean and, ultimately, how it could bring the things we love grinding to a halt.

Autonomous vehicle technology continues to develop at pace, and it has the potential to bring sweeping changes to our transportations systems. Much of the focus is on the impact this technology will have on passenger vehicles, but the trucking industry will also experience significant change over the coming decades

Car Cloud Computing: cloud is increasingly becoming part of our daily lives. It started with the virtual cloud where we store our photos and music, which can be easily accessed from any smart device. The “Internet of Things” trend allows us to connect a range of devices using the cloud, from smart appliances to phones, and now, cars.

Although ADAS applications are still in their early days, original-equipment-manufacturers and their suppliers realize that automation will eventually become the main feature differentiating automotive brands, as well as one of their most important revenue sources. Moreover, many of the technologies that enable today’s ADAS offerings will filter through to fully autonomous vehicles, which are now a major source of research and development, both within OEMs and non-traditional high-tech players that have recently entered the automotive sector.

Engineers have been installing the building blocks for modern autonomous vehicles since the 1980s, starting with antilock brakes, traction control, electric power steering, drive-by-wire, adaptive cruise control, cameras, etc. Now, as engineers tie these components together, along with lidar, radar and high-definition mapping, the car is basically becoming a thinking machine that is aware of its place in the world. But, as NXP Automotive CTO Lars Reger, told delegates at NXP’s ‘FTF Connects’ conference in San Jose in June 2017, “An autonomous car can only be as good as its environmental sensing.” In voicing his opinion he was expressing the sentiment of the entire industry: Capturing in this single sentence both the challenge and future of automated vehicles.

Car manufacturers and suppliers worldwide have worked over the years on improvements in the area of mechanics, quality requirements and logistics. However, the main differentiation factor between brands turned out to be the electronics area. Whereas areas such as power train and body had small product development cost increases over the years, the costs for the development of electronic systems has been tripled.

The reality of fully autonomous vehicles is drawing ever closer, and increasingly sophisticated driver assistance technologies are permeating the industry. Today’s ‘semi-autonomous’ cars feature a range of support functions such as lane assist and automatic braking, and the sector has become a hotbed of innovation as OEMs scramble to be the first to market with new technology.

Smartphone functions and capabilities don’t necessarily translate directly to in-car electronic systems, and the two sectors have very different demands and characteristics. Vehicle manufacturers have a number of extra factors to consider, such as safety, driver distraction, and the methods with which we interact with in-car tech. These are challenges for the industry to grapple with, but from a consumer point of view these issues are perhaps of less concern. How can this be addressed?
