Scalable, cloud-based architectures are gaining greater acceptance for simulating and testing the myriad development aspects of automated driving.

As the auto industry strives to improve safety and edge towards high-level automated driving, the complexity of proving that electronic vehicle controls will perform safely is skyrocketing. Simulation's expanding role in systems validation is prompting many tool providers to move to scalable, cloud-based architectures that run operations in parallel to shorten analysis times.

Media & entertainment offers important learnings on data retention, management, scalability and security.

At first glance, autonomous vehicles would seem to have little in common with the Media and Entertainment (M&E) industry, beyond action-movie car chases and in-vehicle entertainment screens.

BASF is exploring how specific materials-and even paint colors and finishes-can improve the capabilities of AV sensors.

The sensing technologies needed for automated-driving vehicles are evolving as the industry moves toward high-level (SAE Level 4-5) automation. Sophisticated sensors already enable advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) features such as adaptive cruise control, park assist, lane-centering and others.

The Tier-1 giant's “vision” for improving future mobility leverages its latest safety and chassis-development innovations.

As the product-development landscape for light-vehicle electrification and automated-driving technologies becomes less cluttered, it's apparent that established automotive Tier 1 mega-suppliers are intent on merging their established competencies with whatever new product lines are required in the electrified, automated future…whenever it comes.

Einride ramps up industry partnerships and on-road demos of its all-electric self-driving truck that's missing one thing: a cab for the drivers.

“Data is the most efficient propellant.” This expression underpins the founding in 2016 of the Swedish startup Einride. The fledgling tech company currently is partnering with well-established transport-intensive companies, at an increasingly accelerated rate, to run its cab-less autonomous truck, the T-pod, at their facilities and even on public roads. These activities are coordinated by intelligent routing software that integrates customer data, traffic data, vehicle data, etc., to optimize delivery time, battery life and energy consumption.

Autonomous-vehicle 5G development support moves ahead at Millbrook Proving Ground in the U.K.

Millbrook Proving Ground in the U.K. has officially launched the AutoAir consortium's 5G cellular testing infrastructure for autonomous vehicle (AV) development. The new facility at Millbrook provides AV developers access to a low-latency, wide-area wireless infrastructure billed to work seamlessly across the entire sprawling test facility 50 miles (80 km) north of London.

The consolidation plot thickens

Those charged with analyzing and evaluating the expansive autonomous-vehicle development landscape must be breathing a little easier. Like cartographers of old who summit the tallest peak and are finally afforded an enlightening view of the region, spring and early summer brought AV-industry analysts some similarly illuminating vistas of industry-consolidation clarity.

The promises of fully connected autonomous vehicles are great, but so are the challenges.

The synergies between electrification, connectivity and automation in future vehicles are creating new business models and causing developments in each to be accelerated. EVs, for example, need connectivity to assist with finding charging stations and autonomous vehicles (AVs) require significant levels of electric power to support their compute demands. But perhaps the greatest synergy lies between connectivity and autonomy.

As the world turns to C-V2X, Europe picks WiFi

Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications is a relatively straightforward and inexpensive technology that has the potential to reduce crashes by improving driver situational awareness. Compared to the automated-driving technology that most of the industry is rushing to develop, V2X is cheap and can even be retrofitted to existing vehicles.

Radar and lidar get all the attention, but Inertial Measurement Units are the backbone of sensor fusion. Suppliers are scrambling to make IMUs more accurate-and much less expensive.

The emerging era of highly-automated driving comes courtesy of much-vaunted sensor technology-spinning lasers, penetrating radar, sonar blips. But the sensor that gets the least respect in the technology stack could be the lynchpin for the mass roll-out of self-driving vehicles: the inertial measurement unit (IMU).
