15:10pm – 15:45pm: Safety and Security in AVs: How automated driving is transforming the sensor and computing markets
Various OEMs, such as BMW and Mercedes, are actively pursuing the goal of automated driving, with initial releases featuring eyes-off functionalities for highway driving up to 60 km/h. This marks the first phase, setting the stage for broader applications like highway driving up to 130 km/h, possibly on/off ramp navigation, arterial driving, and more. Each progression correlates with advancements in sensor technology and computing hardware. For instance, a vehicle equipped with sensors optimized for 60 km/h may require upgraded, more sophisticated sensors and computing power to handle speeds up to 130 km/h. Additionally, the arrangement and quantity of sensors on a car are evolving in alignment with specific use cases identified by OEMs.
This presentation provides an overview of the automated driving landscape, outlining the anticipated steps toward achieving this goal. The focus will be on market forecasts for camera, radar, LiDAR, and associated computing, encompassing revenue projections for each category.
