AUSTIN, TX – More than 80 companies are developing autonomous vehicles, and many more are involved in providing sensors and computational systems for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), says TechSearch International.
System design, package choices, materials, and process integration are critical to the successful implementation of the new safety features that are part of ADAS, and will ultimately be part of autonomous driving, says the firm.
ADAS requires the use of cameras, light detection and ranging (LIDAR), radar, and other sensors, as well as communication systems and fast processing capability. The potential use of artificial intelligence or machine learning to provide analytics-enabling safety features is driving the adoption of advanced packaging and heterogeneous integration, says TechSearch. Different combinations of sensors will be used in each vehicle, and the particular combinations will be determined by each carmaker.
