John Day IHS Technology predicts that the market for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) semiconductor devices will quadruple from $643.8 million in 2010 to $2.6 billion in 2020 thanks to increasing demand for car and driver safety systems. The research firm expects that market for ADAS chips to grow by 20% this year. Take image sensors, for example, used in front-view camera systems. They can analyze … Read More

John Day In my last post I noted the launch by Freescale and Broadcom of a single-chip automotive microcontroller (MCU) that supports compact video compression and fast transmission of video data throughout a vehicle over unshielded twisted pair cabling. The firms said cabling weight could be reduced by up to 30% and connectivity costs reduced by up to 80%. But wait, there’s more. Cable weight in cars … Read More

John Day   Does anyone know why, after decades of decreasing numbers of road traffic accidents in developed countries, accident rates are climbing again in the U.S. and Europe? And what to do about it? In the U.K., there were 2.8 percent more fatal accidents in 2011 than in 2010. In Germany for the same period, accidents increased by 9.9 percent. In the U.S, there were 9.0 percent more fatal accidents during … Read More

John Day How close are we to the reality of autonomous driving? Is it closer than we might think, still years away and dependent  on the widespread deployment of V2X technology, or both? Tier one supplier Continental completed a two-week, 6,000-mile automated driving endurance test on public roads in Nevada. It credited knowledge gained from the car that won the DARPA Urban Challenge in 2007 and from HAVEit, … Read More
