Increase in demand for advanced vehicle safety and comfort systems

The demand for safety features, such as parking assistance, collision avoidance systems, lane departure warnings, traction control, electronic stability control, tire pressure monitors, airbags, and telematics is experiencing an upward trend, owing to increase in number of road accidents worldwide. Automotive chips are a major component used in numerous advance driver assistance systems (ADAS) technologies, which helps ADAS systems perform efficiently and can detect and classify objects on the path of vehicle, and accordingly alert the driver of the nearby surroundings and road conditions. In addition, these systems can also automatically decelerate or stop the vehicle depending on the road conditions based on the calculations made through chips & associated components.

Road accidents are a major cause of death globally and tremendous increase in the death rates due to road accidents has been observed in last few years. For instance, according to World Health Organization’s report published in 2022, nearly 1.3 million people died in road traffic crashes each year. Moreover, road traffic injuries leading to death are higher among teenagers. These factors are leading to surge in demand for safety features in vehicles. Companies operating in the automobile sector are developing and introducing the safety features to meet the needs of the customers. For instance, in February 2020, HELLA (company that manufacturers cutting-edge lighting and electronics components) announced the production plan for the latest 77 GHz radar technology.

As a crucial application of complementary metal oxide chips (CMOS) radar, automotive radar is evolving as a key technology supporting the functioning of smart and autonomous features in modern vehicles, for instance, reducing driver stress, relieving drivers from repetitive tasks, and adding life-saving automatic interventions. These benefits are expected to increase the penetration of automotive chips during the forecast timeframe.

Moreover, automotive companies and chip providers joined hands to further adoption of ADAS for more safety. For instance, in March 2022, Renesas Electronics Corporation, a leading provider of advanced semiconductor solutions, announced the expansion of its collaboration with Honda in the adoption of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). Honda opted for Renesas' R-Car automotive system on a chip (SoC) and RH850 automotive MCU for integration into the Honda SENSING 360 omnidirectional safety and driver assistance system. Moreover, the R-Car S4 will integrate with Honda SENSING 360 system as the primary SoC within the electronic control unit (ECU), the central component of the ADAS. This collaboration signifies an extension of Renesas and Honda's joint efforts to enhance safety technologies within the ADAS domain.

In addition, chip suppliers have spread awareness regarding safety in automobiles. For instance, in December 2022, Valens Chip, a prominent provider of high-speed connectivity solutions for the automotive and audio-video sectors, unveiled its plans to present the advantages of its automotive high-speed connectivity product suite.
