Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/qkgs2h/vehicle_dynamics) has announced the addition of the “Vehicle Dynamics: Transformation, Technology and Opportunity “ report to their offering.

Nothing, not even the Toyota unintended acceleration crisis of a few years ago, has tempered the industry’s zeal for brake-by-wire, steer-by-wire and drive-by-wire technology.

X-by-wire is the wave of the future in vehicle dynamics, promising to make cars lighter, safer, easier to build and more fuel efficient.

But what does it mean for your company? What are the hidden opportunities?

Vehicle Dynamics: Transformation, Technology and Opportunity provides an overall understanding of a fast-moving field.

For more than two decades the take-up of electronically-controlled vehicle dynamics was held back by consumer reservations. But the situation has changed dramatically in the past two years.

OEM strategies starting with braking systems are taking shape so quickly that it is difficult to keep track of who is doing what – and where the opportunities lie. The report offers a clear analysis of the state of modern vehicle dynamics and the tactical steps OEMs are taking.

What’s clear is that the mandate for better fuel economy and the competition for emerging markets are stimulating the new interest by OEMs in X-by-wire systems. Not least among them is the new industry race for self-driving vehicles, which proponents say is impossible without X-by-wire.

In an era of platform commonality the management of vehicle dynamics has become a key differentiator for products, a trend that will clearly continue. The passage of the art of vehicle dynamics from the mechanical to the electronic creates enormous opportunities for suppliers.

The report evaluates cost benefit imperatives of vehicle dynamics technologies and consumer adoption, as well as detailing important research findings and exploring case studies in integrated systems.
