Technologies Reshaping the Automotive Industry

Automotive industry

The automotive industry is functioning hand in hand with innovative technologies to deliver the foremost advanced, safest and cozy automotive. Automotives are getting smart devices with advanced emergency braking capability, mapping technology for autonomous driving, and better fuel efficiency.

One of the main technology-aided trends within the automotive industry is automated driving. Automation will bring revolutionary changes in certain aspects of driving. An advanced driver assistance system will allow delivering guidance to the vehicle. Drivers will never need to compromise on dynamism, passion, and delight of driving. Developed sensor technologies and high-performance computer systems related to driving will come to reality soon. Cluster intelligence will allow automated vehicles to ascertain around corners. Advanced driver assistance with sensors increases safety by replacing rearview mirrors with camera systems.

Innovative solutions for gasoline, diesel engines also as electrified drive systems form the idea for increasingly efficient and low-emission vehicles. The electrification of cars will contribute to efficient driving with lower emissions. Efficiency is closely associated with sustainability too.

Artificial Intelligence In Automotive

Artificial intelligence and machine learning give predictive capabilities for automotive for personalizing the driving experience. Manufacturing industries are applying algorithms to automate the method of fixing a vehicle including its infotainment system and application preferences. Vehicles are getting smart with the power to require voice commands and alter the interface.

The car as a service is another upcoming advancement that provisions hire car service and allows drivers engaging a ride-sharing service. One important thing about these techniques is that no driver’s license is required to access these vehicles serving as a driverless cab.

Big data and AI also are playing an important role within the customization of vehicles, notifying owners about vehicle maintenance. the opposite benefits include biometric vehicle access, comprehensive vehicle tracking, remote vehicle pack up, vehicle-to-vehicle communication, and active health monitoring.

The Timeline Of Electric Vehicle

Timeline of electric vehicle

Initially, the electric vehicles (EVs) were developed by innovators from Hungary, the Netherlands, and the United States in the 1800s. Due to the high cost, low mileage, and low speed of electric cars, their usage was restricted. Though the environmental concerns have always advocated the implementation of electric cars, the breakthrough was never achieved, until recently.

Improvement in Technology

Dominating the electric car market depends as much on improved battery capabilities and speed but also on the price at which it’s availed. As of now, all the factors have improved since its inception. New developments in EVs like Aluminum- and zinc-air batteries aim to enhance recharge capabilities, lowering the energy storage cost. Efforts are also put to reduce the recharge time for EVs. In some of the latest models, a full charge battery has the potential to provide a mileage of up to 200 miles.

The Road Ahead for EVs

Some of the major economies like the UK have already set goals for full-fledged implementation of Electric cars. The UK government plans to stop the sales of diesel and petrol models by 2040. It has also stated that hybrid or EVs will comprise nearly half of the new vehicles. Companies like Tesla and some of the major Chinese companies have realized the future demand for this technology and are investing considerable sums in this technology. Northern Powergrid, an electrical distribution company, based in Newcastle, also is actively engaged in EV projects dedicated to helping UK transport system to actualize a low carbon future. This initiative includes a £9.8 m collaboration project led by Nissan that aims to implant 1,000 Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) charging points into the UK network. This initiative focuses on meeting the surplus energy demand in the future. Currently, the three types of charging include: slow, fast, and rapid and there are initiatives to increase the number of charging grids.

Today, people are realizing and accepting the importance of EVs. With several enterprises around the globe working in this direction, it’s a smooth road ahead for the electric car industry.
