How can the new wave of technologies make the automotive industry more personalized and responsive to drivers?

The advancement in technology has modernized the driving experience in recent years. As solutions based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), that encompasses Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) are providing a more personalized, connected, safe, intelligent, secure, user-friendly and seamless driving experience. The concept of technological personalization for drivers did not exist before. It was difficult to imagine having a vehicle that would be so user friendly, thus refining the driving experience for both drivers as well as passengers. However, with change and modernization of technology, thanks to AI and Big Data Analytics, vehicle personalization is no longer restricted to aesthetics, brand and style elements. It is more to do with the experience of drivers while they use the vehicle. The more time one spends in a vehicle must lead to increase in brand association. Harvard Health Watch recently reported that an average American spends close to 101 minutes each day driving their car. NCHS, National Vital Statistics System, has stated that the average life expectancy in the US...

Opportunities for electric cars and challenges for driverless cars in India

Opportunities for electric cars and challenges for driverless cars in India

With a constant alteration in technology, our needs are varying more and more every day. Gone are the days where we would depend only on public transport for travelling. The current generation entails more of electronic gadgets for a tranquil life. Electric Vehicles are hypothetically substantial sources of new electric loads that a country like India is focusing on in the near future. In fact, just this morning we woke up to the news that the government has amended building bylaws in Karnataka to make it mandatory to have charging points in all high-rise buildings, including malls and apartments India may be slow in embracing electric vehicles, but once it takes off, the adoption will be fast. The nation is estimated to see 30.81 million electric vehicles sales by 2040. That number comes from Amitabh Kant, CEO of NITI Aayog. According to sources, the electric vehicles trend is set to grow in the country and India aims to reach zero emission by 2040. Electric cars will not only modify...

Telematics – An important tool in Fleet Management

Telematics – An important tool in Fleet Management

Technology has gained trust and control over almost every sphere of our lives. Our facilities are turning smart, industries are transforming digitally and the lifestyles have become ever-connected. Companies battle to thrive on this wave of digitization, thereby continuously innovating and creating newer avenues of technology adoption. Telematics, a concept that combines telecommunications and informatics, is one such innovation that technology buffs bank on to fill the gaps and redefine fleet management. Fleet management is the field of monitoring fleet costs, running conditions, downtimes and optimal decision making on trade–offs between fixed costs and running costs of ships, rail cars and commercial vehicles like cars, trucks etc. It includes a wide range of functions such as vehicle tracking, geo-fencing and diagnostics, route-optimization, personalized insurance, vehicle financing and preventative maintenance, driver behavior monitoring and fuel management, vehicle safety and health management. Telematics is the data science that puts together all the critical information you need for fleet management, right at your fingertips. What is it that makes logistics efficient –...

How far is the country from the future of mobility? – Challenges in designing autonomous cars for India

How far is the country from the future of mobility? – Challenges in designing autonomous cars for India

A technological revolution always happens when it is accompanied by changes in and around the entire ecosystem. It is this environment which triggers innovations across the companies and helps create guidelines for the newly formed setup. Likewise disruption created by introduction of autonomous cars is not solely an evolution of traditional cars but in fact it stands to revolutionize various other sectors in the process. An autonomous car is an intelligent thinking vehicle running on four wheels with capabilities to connect with the outside world. It should not be confused with a connected car as the latter only supplies information to the driver using connectivity technologies such as 3G or 4G LTE. It lacks the decision making senses, while the former is self driven and does not require a human to control it. Autonomous cars engage sophisticated technologies like AI, big data, sensory inputs and connectivity to take decisions on behalf of humans on board. Such technologies deploy complex algorithms and reasoning concepts against physical driving conditions to infuse...

Why automotive industry needs virtualization?

Why automotive industry needs virtualization?

The automotive Infotainment Industry has evolved from having standalone systems for various functions like infotainment, telematics, and diagnostics to more integrated systems with connectivity being the key. We have seen silos being broken and systems being more interdependent and inter-connected, resulting in real-time, on demand services like Spotify and Connected Diagnostics among others. The auto industry is at an inflection point and the key for success is going to be how Auto industry address the growing demand for connectivity, convenience and convergence (3Cs) i.e. connectivity of a smart device, convergence of a high end Cockpit and convenience/comfort of a luxury car. The consumer industry has seen rapid innovation with short product life cycles ranging from 6 to 18 months. Consumer devices like Mobile phone, iPad have become feature rich with intuitive user experiences. The consumer who has experienced these devices is expecting the same experience in automotive cockpit. Traditionally there has been one ECU per function in a car. Due to the demand of more features, OEMs have integrated...
