3 Autonomous Vehicle Trends to follow in 2019

In the year 2018, several automotive players had set their cars rolling for a driverless experience. Unfortunately, not a lot of them had the security measures in place that made them withdraw their vehicles from the market. As the year got through, accidents and fatalities had made enough news.

In the year 2019, several automotive companies have marked their presence on-road with splendid autonomous vehicle technology. One of the companies that are shaping the new age driverless car market is Samsung and HARMAN.

The two companies are working together to create safe, smart, and more mobile vehicles which will be the future of innovations. In this process, they work on artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and vision, autonomous mobility and sensor control for connectivity. Once the backend is mastered using these, the company further builds on automotive-grade safety, and security – all within an open architecture framework. Here are some of the trends that are foreseen to rule this industry.

  • Secure AI Driven vehicles

Dramatic changes are to be seen owing to data and intelligence gained through AI. The feature advancements will have a better perception for object recognition, learning and predicting human behaviours. The cars now will be able to judge driver alertness and gestures. In addition, connected fleets of automobiles will also be able to provide data and services about traffic flows, parking availability, and more.

  • Complex software integration for ADAS and automated driving platforms

With Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) coming in place, on-road safety of a vehicle is not in question anymore. HARMAN Connected Services offers this technology to automakers are adding this technology to the automobiles to deliver cars that are aligned with their vision and ensure a secure driving experience. Features like V2V connectivity and V2X connectivity gives travelling pleasure. The modern-day connected cars are equipped with intelligent personal voice assistants that take drivers commands to perform vehicle-centric tasks. These tasks are in response to commands from the cloud and the outside environment.

  • Smart audio to optimise the voice-enabled car

With digital personal assistant in place, sophisticated in-car voice control systems have grown significantly in recent years. Although AI and autonomous vehicle features are advancing now more than ever, the safety and productivity benefits of voice technology are still null if commands can’t be heard or understood on either end. The entire idea is to deliver a better in-vehicle experience with advanced voice processing for different driver profiles. Further advancements will be focused on building a driver cabin that has seamless communication channels.
