The development of ADAS is heavily influenced by sensor technologies. The sensors’ role is to deliver a constant stream of data on the area around the car, which is what ADAS, and autonomous driving functions rely on.
The sensor must be able to pick up everything the driver cannot see or hasn’t noticed in addition to what the driver can. As more than one type of sensor is needed for each ADAS function, there are currently many distinct types of sensors in use, each having their own benefits and drawbacks in terms of capabilities, price, and packing.
It is feasible to improve the ADAS functionalities by integrating multiple technologies because each type of sensor has recognised advantages and disadvantages.
The task therefore is to reliably and quickly process the stream of data from many sources as this fusion of sensor technology quickly becomes the norm.
The strength and longevity of the sensors are additional factors to take into account. Some sensors can be installed inside the car’s interior, but many are required to be mounted outside, at the edges of the vehicle, in susceptible locations like bumper corners and behind the grille, which can be unfriendly settings for high-tech equipment.
The Global Automotive ADAS wireless sensor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Recently, new, more advanced driver-assistance systems for a certain range of automobiles will be made available in Japan, according to announcements made by Honda and Toyota separately.
when it was revealed that the Honda Legend equipped with Honda Sensing Elite would become the first car ever to receive a “type designation” from Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) for a driver-assistance system with SAE Level 3 capability.
According to Honda’s press releases on Honda Sensing Elite, the system’s Traffic Jam Pilot feature offers Level 3 capability because the driver is not operating the vehicle when the feature is in use, and the driver is not obliged to keep an eye on the system in case a “takeover” is necessary. However, according to the Level 3 description, the driver must be ready if the feature does request driver takeover.
For mobile devices, the Internet of Things, and sophisticated driver assistance systems, AIStorm unveiled a number of real-time AI-in-sensor solutions (ADAS). To accelerate AI at the edge, many industry players are concentrating on deep submicron GPU-based solutions.
According to AIStorm, these solutions cannot meet the applications’ real-time processing, power, and low-cost needs. By enabling complete solutions with a sensor, an analogue front end, and AI processing at low cost, and suitable for even the smallest form factors — without the need to digitise input data — AIStorm are reshaping the landscape.
IoT Vision/AIStorm IoT Waveform Solutions addresses the following: voice input, drone imaging, image stabilisation, security and intersection cameras, gesture control, heart monitoring and heart-based identification, occupancy sensing, facial recognition, and voice input.
LeddarTech, a provider of scalable auto and mobility LiDAR platforms, and First Sensor AG, a provider of cutting-edge sensor solutions, have announced a strategic partnership. According to the collaboration, OEMs and Tier 1s will have access to the only open and complete LiDAR platform option.
Common architectures and standardised parts will be offered, ensuring reduced risk, improved production volume scalability, cost optimization, and the ability to handle various LiDAR applications. The kit will primarily be used for automotive front LiDAR applications like Highway Pilot and Traffic Jam Assist, which are used for high-speed highway driving.
A scalable family of CMOS image sensors has been introduced by ON Semiconductor, a leader in energy-efficient innovations, to address the range of ADAS and autonomous vehicle applications.
The newest sensor family from ON Semiconductor gives automakers and tier one suppliers a selection of durable imaging devices built on a shared platform and feature set. The sensors have industry-leading low-light performance starting at 4.2 m pixels and resolutions scaling from 8.3 megapixels (MP) down to 1.2 MP.
Functional safety up to ASIL-C, high dynamic range (HDR), a first in the industry cybersecurity option, and second-generation wafer stacking technology that minimises package size are additional features. Many technology partners, including Mobileye and NVIDIA, are currently evaluating specific products in this platform for use with its DRIVE AI computing platform for autonomous vehicles.
A scalable image sensor family made up of the AR0820AT, AR0220AT, and AR0138AT offers a variety of resolutions suitable for next-generation ADAS and autonomous driving systems. To address the segmentation in their product lines, where certain safety features are standard but additional cameras or higher resolution cameras enable more advanced safety and luxury capabilities as customer options, automakers need different resolutions.
