Set Alert for Mobility

‘Sense of Touch’ Technology Can Help Prevent Fatalities

The Tactile Mobility system will detect even very slight initial runover of virtually anything, including a soft human body part, and provide a warning and/or a full vehicle stop to prevent further runover, which could be life-saving.

Software Defined Architectures: The Burgeoning Business Model

Next-generation E/E architectures will create new business models for automakers and suppliers. But a Wards Intelligence survey shows few see themselves as pacesetters, and there’s some uncertainty about where the best monetization opportunities are. The massive change in operations, and the associated costs, will put constraints on the timeframe and depth of the changes in infrastructure and vehicle architectures that OEMs will be able to address.

Cyber-security in Automotive

Lately, cybersecurity has dramatically grown in importance in the automotive industry, although in Wards´ opinion it has not been properly addressed yet. In the past 5 years, the several “accidents,” where hackers have been able to take full, or partial, control of vehicles´ functions, are an evident and worrying indicator.

The New Mobility Era: Software-Defined but Data-Driven

Across the supply chain, software-defined approaches appear to be the clear path to ensure flexible and future-proof architectures. In the past five years, we have observed that software has dramatically developed in new and disruptive directions, enabled by the advancement of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms which are strongly depending on high-quality data.
