electronica 2018 - On the Way to Autonomous Driving
Loading the battery capacity by up to 80 percent – in two minutes – that’s the vision of the student project inMotion. And it’s pointing the way, not just for electric racing cars. The semiconductor industry is central to the progress being made in the automotive sector - so central, in fact, that people are wondering who is driving who – one of the main talking points at electronica. The key to automated-driving cars is security because cars will communicate between each other and the infrastructure will communicate with cars. Only highly complex technologies can guarantee safety in autonomous traffic. Being able to stay cost-effective at the same time is one of the challenges. The extra cost for a car radar system for example is lower than the extra you have to pay for a metallic paint job.
