Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3hbmzz/key_focus_areas) has announced the addition of the “Key Focus Areas for Driving Interface Systems for Passenger Cars” report to their offering.

New developments in terms of the increasing consumer need for better ride and handling have shifted the focus from chassis development to safety, data recognition, and real-time information by utilising maps from GPS navigation systems, image recognition based on cameras, LIDAR and radar, and data points acquired via V2V and V2I communications. In addition, there is growing interest in autonomous driving systems. Through integrated control involving the cooperative inter-operation of these technologies with chassis control systems, numerous OEMs and tier 1 companies are developing systems that further enhance road safety, performance, and driving comfort, as required by present-day consumers.

Shift-by-wire technology is expected to be widely adopted due to its ability to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH), offer design flexibility, and augment response time. It is likely to be one of the enabling technologies for level 4 automated vehicles, wherein driver input will be minimal/nil.

At present, shift-by-wire technology is used in automated self parking, wherein the car parks itself without driver input. The technology is likely to remain confined to the premium vehicles segments due to the high cost involved. Adoption in the volumes segment is expected after 2020.

Road surface condition sensing systems are in the pre-development phase, and premium OEMs are likely to be the initial adopters of the technology. Non-contact-based sensors and co-operative systems are likely to be the preferred road sensing systems for OEMs as they offer seamless integration potential with other systems, such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Haptic feedback accelerator pedal technology is being considered by most OEMs because of its ability to analyse a vehicle’s environment and provide feedback on the level of acceleration input needed through the pedal. It is likely to be implemented in the premium segment post 2018.
