An automotive navigation system is a part of automobile control system used in vehicles. It typically uses Global Positioning System (GPS) which integrates computer mapping techniques to provide three- dimensional (3D) position of the vehicle.
Presently, the automotive industry is witnessing a shift towards embedded telematics system wherein navigation system, infotainment system, driver assistance system and others are integrated into one single embedded system compared to traditional standalone systems. Generally, OEM embedded telematics systems are preferred by majority of the customers.
An advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) is a system designed to enhance and automate vehicle controls, improve vehicle & road safety and provide better driving experience. Typically, ADAS utilizes technologies such as image, ultrasonic, RADAR, LIDAR and infrared to improve overall driving experience. ADAS includes enhanced safety features, which help in avoiding accidents. Safety features provided by ADAS include adaptive cruise control (ACC), park assist, tire pressure monitoring (TPMS), adaptive front lighting, blind spot detection (BSD), drowsiness monitor, lane departure warning system (LDWS) and others.
In addition, manufacturers are also adopting Internet of Things (IoT) to offer connected services for drivers including weather and real-time traffic reports, accident or work warnings, etc. Connected car systems integrate embedded hardware components with smart connectivity capabilities to enhance monitoring, electronic and diagnostic function of a vehicle. It employs advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and other navigation supports as core services offering to improve overall driving experience. Connected car systems are expected to further drive the market by providing standardized platforms for telematics systems.
With adoption of driverless or autonomous vehicles, demand of ADAS is expected to increase further because it provides higher level of safety through incorporation of monitoring, steering, warning and braking controls.
