Key Market Trends

Autonomous Vehicle Acts as a Growth Engine for Market

Vehicle manufacturers are investing heavily in the autonomous car technology and entering partnerships to develop the best autonomous vehicle as autonomous vehicles require an enormous quantity of data collecting and processing. The entire data is shared between IoT connected cars and is uploaded wirelessly to a cloud system to be analyzed and used for improving automation. For instance,

BMW Group invested around USD 110 million for a new driving simulation center in Munich. It is the company's most advanced facility for the development of autonomous driving systems. BMW group research is expecting to start working on the premises by 2020.

In 2019, the FCA Automotive Research and Development Centre inaugurated a new Vehicle Dynamics Simulator lab, which features a VI-grade DiM250 simulator. The new system uses nine actuators to perform all motion of a vehicle.

North America is Expected to Lead the Market

North America is led by the United States, which is one of the most technologically superior markets in the world. There is rapid growth for Level 2 and Level 3 autonomous cars in this region, equipped with advanced driver assistance systems, like collision detection, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. The other upper-level autonomous cars are also gaining support from governments and various companies, which are working together on different projects of automated driving systems technology.

In 2019, the US Department of Transportation granted USD 60 million for projects related to vehicle automation to the state departments of transportation and research institutes. In this total amount, eight grants were given to seven recipients.

In that, USD 7.5 million was granted to the University of Michigan and the American Center for Mobility, a connected vehicle testing facility in southeast Michigan. The grant will support research, development, and testing at the facilities of ACM and the University of Michigan.

On the other hand, in January 2020, Michelin installed an Ansible Motion Driver-in-the-Loop simulator at its North America R&D center. The company has developed the TameTire model, which can calculate the thermal and transient state of tires, in both online and offline simulations.
