Although the automotive industry has made substantial strides in improving safety over the years, the next frontier may reside in all of us, or in the “crowd.” Crowdsourcing is proven method to improve automotive safety. Used primarily in navigation today, new uses are being discovered daily, and the ultimate goal may be to ensure safe transportation in autonomous vehicles.

The connected car demands a growing number of antennas. But incorporating them all is a challenge for designers, engineers, and aerodynamicists. Antennas are the interface between the connected car and the outside world and become even more important as ADAS, infotainment, navigation, remote diagnostics and autonomous-driving systems rely on data transfer over-the-air.

Advanced driver assistance and increasing functionality change how we interact with vehicles. Amid rising complexity, intuitive interfaces are critical to maximizing safety and human/machine collaboration. Voice is rapidly emerging as the dominant medium within an integrated control and communication strategy.

As cars are becoming more connected with ADAS and V2X technology, the need for a robust, comprehensive and in-depth security framework is essential to ensure the privacy and safety of the vehicle and its occupants. HARMAN SHIELD is specifically designed to keep connected and autonomous vehicles protected against cyber threats.

With the emergence of autonomous vehicles, commuters and travelers released from the obligation of driving and navigating will gain extra time for other things. Cloud-based in-vehicle entertainment will be a seamless continuation of consumers’ digital lives and a key element of individualization in shared-mobility models of the future.

Smart cars not only know what is going on within their own systems, they also have increasing awareness of the world around them and can even learn the preferences of those who use them. Telematics, V2X and 4/5G allow them to see through obstacles, around corners and beyond, while machine learning means they can anticipate driver needs to create an always mindful and highly individualized user experience.

5G is set to play pivotal role as automakers seek to integrate vehicles into the Internet of Things. But it also represents a paradigm shift for V2X technologies on the road to autonomous driving. HARMAN looks at the key benefits unlocked by 5G and the broader implications for systems integration, sensor fusion and engineering connected cars.

Although its widespread use is relatively recent, life before the internet seems a distant memory. In cars, network use is set to expand drastically. Integrating the vehicle into the Internet of Things will form the foundation of future mobility concepts and has the potential to deliver enormous benefits for everybody.

Having vehicles “keep an eye” on the driver and occupants, will make the driving experience safer by reducing accidents and saving lives. This can be achieved through advanced driver and occupant monitoring systems. As part of sensor fusion in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), it is also an essential component needed for semi-autonomous vehicle functionality.

Think you’re surrounded by safe drivers? Think again. Human error is the cause of around 90 percent of traffic collisions. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems have the potential to remove human error from the equation and improve road safety on the journey to zero-accident mobility.
