Strategic Analysis of the European and North American Market for Automated Driving

NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Strategic Analysis of the European and North American Market for Automated Driving

Every Major OEM Group to Commercialize Semi- and Highly-automated Vehicles by 2020

This study investigates the OEM go-to-market strategy for automated cars as compared to non-automotive efforts such as Google's. Key automakers and potential new entrants are looking to make driverless vehicles a reality by 2020. An overall philosophy towards automated cars is provided, focusing on a targeted level of automation and introduction timelines, including key technology trends, enablers, and outlooks for automated driving-related technologies. Market size and forecasts by OEM and by region—2014 to 2020—are outlined. Business cases and OEM profiles as well as an actionable set of recommendations for aspiring OEMs looking to enter the market are offered. The base year is 2013; forecasts run 2014–2025.

Key Findings

OEMs are still evaluating their launch strategies while keeping safety and product-liability issues in mind; though technologically advanced, there is no first-to-market fight to go completely driverless.

Calculative Approach
- OEMs not fighting to take the "firstto-market" tag
- Cautious approach amidst liability and safety issues

Feature-focused Development
- Focus on urban convenience aided by services like Automated Park Assist (APA) and traffic jam assist.
- Focus on human machine interface (HMI) and connected services
- Prime focus on semi-automated cars, sensor suite to be the major technology enabler

Market Snapshot
- BMW and Mercedes-Benz to commercialize semi-automated driving in 2014, while massmarket OEMs may take until 2017
- Continental, Bosch, and Valeo to be the best-fit suppliers
- Non-traditional participants (e.g., Google) to be key enablers and potential disruptors as well

Factory-fitted vs. Retrofits
- Clear strategy by OEMs to offer automated driving functionality as factory-fitted equipment
- Google's strategy: offer retro-fit equipment enabling automated driving across various vehicle segments

Automated Driving -> Extended Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)?
- OEMs specifically in Europe projecting automated driving as natural extension of ADAS
- Cost justification through monetization from automated driving packaging
- Positioned as premium/extended ADAS package

Traditional vs. Non-traditional Automated Driving Approach

Regulations and the vehicle-sales-based ownership model drive OEMs to design cars around drivers' requirements, whereas Google takes a clean-sheet approach and focuses on mobility.

Traditional OEM
The automotive industry looks to eliminate human error by employing vehicle automation that can act on behalf of the driver.
Automated driving converts vehicles into a rich data source that OEMs will seek to leverage. This includes maintenance management, telematics, and in the future, vehicle information may also be shared with "Big Data" traffic services. The first factory-fitted automation features include traffic-jam assist and automated park assist (APA), typically semi-automated in nature.

Google Project
The average American car user spends roughly 10 hours a week in driving activity. Google wishes to confine the car user in a connected environment during this time and capitalize this time duration. By automating the vehicle, Google can engage commuters in more online activity, enabling personalized advertising and location based services (LBS).
Google wishes to make their fully-automated system a street-legal retrofit, approved under the "construction and use" category to target vehicles-inoperation.

Traditional OEMs, unlike Google, are more inclined towards highly rather than fully-automated driving. OEMs do not feel the rush to be the first in the market with driverless cars due to legislative and liability issues. Liability issues need to be addressed with clarity on scope & responsibility-matrix.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Today every business relies on software to drive the innovation necessary for a competitive edge in the Application Economy.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
