MEMS Sensors Enabling the Smart Car Revolution.
The car world is changing. Car ownership is less and less desirable, yet the number of miles traveled and the number of hours spent in a car are steadily increasing. At the same time, cars are changing profoundly and the pace of change is ever-increasing. To thrive in this brave new world, car makers are becoming transportation enablers and providers.
At the same time, cars are changing too. In a world where vehicles autonomously interact and communicate with humans and with the world around them, drive with reduced or no human control, and become electrified, sensors replace and augment the five human senses enabling vehicles to interpret their surroundings and interact with them in a safe and effective way.
In this talk we will review how cars and car makers are changing, the trends that are fueling the change, and the sensors that enable this revolution with emphasis on MEMS sensors.
