Applications, levels, and OEM strategy: From ADAS to autonomous

Publication Date: 31/12/2020

Automotive OEMs have been focusing on improving the safety of their vehicles to address the pervasive issue of traffic crashes, with greater focus on crash avoidance to build upon long standing benefits in crash crashworthiness. This effort is further supported by government regulations, independent safety evaluations such as NCAP, and voluntary commitments by the automotive industry worldwide.

To offer active safety and driver assistance features while maintaining a solid business case, automakers are adopting diverse strategies. Furthermore, as part of the broader plans of deploying semi and highly automated driving vehicles, automotive OEMs are pursuing innovative strategies that enable them to sustainably develop and deploy autonomous vehicle technologies while minimizing risks.
