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