It can correlate data obtained from inside the vehicle through a process known as interior and exterior sensor fusion.

Automotive Sensor Fusion Market

The fusion of sensor data plays a key role in current and future active vehicle safety systems. Development of new advanced sensors is incomplete without the use of improved signal processing techniques such as data fusion methods. Standalone sensors are unable to overcome certain physical limitations such as range and field of view limitations. Combining information from different sensors therefore increases the area around the vehicle covered by the sensors and increases the reliability of the overall system in the event of sensor failure.

Current trends in the development of autonomous vehicles show increased use of radar and other advanced sensors. Sensor fusion of camera and radar data offers the best solution in terms of system hardware complexity. Only two types of sensors are integrated and complement each other for system coverage, cameras for vision, and radar for obstacle detection.

Sensor fusion is one of the essential tasks in autonomous driving applications that fuse information obtained from multiple sensors to reduce the uncertainties compared to when sensors are used individually. Adoption of sensor fusion increases system integrity, reliability, and robustness for normal operation and provides additional benefits against sensor network attacks originating from the analog domain. By carefully implementing sensor fusion into their systems, automakers can mitigate the risk from malfunction or malevolent action that can cause injury to people, property, or economic prosperity. All sensors and models have a tolerance error and using multiple sensors that measure the same quantity can increase reliability and provide resilience to failure.

Stringent government standards for safety features

Automakers have accelerated their adoption of technology to prevent accidents and improve road safety. Moreover, the government takes initiatives to prevent road fatalities by making these technologies mandatory in vehicles. Road traffic accidents has significantly increased which encourages the government to introduce strict regulations related to safety features in vehicles. For instance, according to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), more than 1.55 million people died in road crashes across India in 2021. Therefore, government of various countries require vehicles to install vehicle safety features to reduce the risk of accidents and improve driver and passenger safety. For instance, in September 2022, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) announced its plans to amend the Central Motor Vehicle Regulations (CMVR) to add safety features in order to improve the safety of vehicle occupants inside collisions. The European Union (EU) General Safety Regulation outlines all mandatory safety requirements that European car manufacturers must comply with. The standards include installation of advanced emergency braking system, accident data recording, crash test approved seat belt sensor, sensor for reversing, speed assistance in vehicles. Advance safety features such as collision prevention and mitigation, speeding warning and alerts, adaptive cruise control system use sensors such as RADAR, LiDAR, camera, and others to detect and identify objects, determine their movement. Sensor fusion technology combines data from these sensors to form a detailed image of the driving environment and use the information to support intelligent actions. Therefore, rise in government standards including the addition of various vehicle safety features provides significant opportunities for the growth of the market.

Technical advantages provided by sensor fusion

Sensor fusion is the process of using software algorithms to combine data from multiple sensors to create an equally comprehensive and accurate model of the environment. Sensors are fundamental to the perception of vehicle surroundings in an automated driving system, and the use and performance of multiple integrated sensors can directly determine the safety and feasibility of automated driving vehicles. Sensor fusion is one of the essential tasks in autonomous driving applications that fuses information obtained from multiple sensors to reduce the uncertainties compared to when sensors are used individually. Sensor fusion increases system integrity, reliability, and robustness for normal operation and provides additional benefits against sensor network attacks originating from the analog domain. By carefully implementing sensor fusion into their systems, automakers can mitigate the risk from malfunction or malevolent action that can cause injury to people, property, or economic prosperity. All sensors and models have a tolerance error and using multiple sensors that measure the same quantity can increase reliability and provide resilience to failure. Multiple sensor-based data fusion makes information more decisive, intelligent, sensible, and precise than single sensor-based data fusion.

Moreover, sensor fusion reduces operating costs by expanding the range of vehicles with autonomous capabilities. Sensor fusion creates high-precision information, which enables the use of low-power, low-precision sensors in IoT based networks. Another important advantage is the increased data exchange obtained through sensor fusion. Sensors in traditional systems process their inputs independently, so the decisions made by the system are only as accurate as the information provided by the individual sensors. Sensor fusion combines inputs from different sensors, such as cameras, LiDAR, and radar. Therefore, sharing multiple datasets enables smarter decision-making and improves vehicle safety. Domain controllers in sensor fusion systems do not have to wait for individual sensors to finish processing data before taking action based on that data. This improves performance in critical situations and improves driver safety. Therefore, such technical benefits offered by sensor fusion is expected to drive the growth of the automotive sensor fusion market.

Malfunctioning of Vehicle Electronic Sensor System

Autonomous vehicle systems receive sensor data, compute driving decisions, and send control signals to the cars. These systems are integrated with multi-sensor fusion (MSF) to fuse the sensor outputs and provide a more reliable picture of the surroundings to smooth out the uncertainties presented by sensor outputs. However, multi-sensor fusion (MSF) cannot perfectly reduce uncertainties because it lacks knowledge about which sensors provide the most accurate data and how to properly combine the data provided by the sensors. For instance, in bad weather conditions such as heavy rain, cameras are unable to detect objects such as motorcycles, cars, and bicycles, but at the same time radar detects the objects there is the challenge to combine the response of radar, lidar, and camera. As a result, severe effects may occur suddenly. In such scenarios, the customer discovered that MSF approaches in autonomous systems can mislead automobile control and result in major safety problems. This factor is anticipated to restraint the growth of the market.

Vehicle communication is expected to accelerate the development of sensor fusion for advanced vehicles. Connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs) (also known as connected autonomous vehicles and self-driving vehicles) are increasingly being developed to reduce traffic accidents, improve quality of life, and improve the efficiency of transportation systems. For instance, in October 2022, Audi demonstrated its Connected Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X) technology that is developed to improve road safety. The German car company has demonstrated various scenarios on the roads of Oceanside, California, in which C-V2X can help reduce the likelihood of collisions between vehicles and cyclists. Therefore, rise in adoption of connected cars leads to surge in development of advanced and efficient sensor and network technologies. Moreover, development of advanced sensor technology for connected vehicles enables devices to communicate with each other and with its environment. Communication technologies such as 5G, wireless sensor networks and narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) are expected to make connected vehicles truly autonomous. New technologies driving communication in the automotive IoT industry, including wireless sensor networks, 4G LTE, 5G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NB-IoT, long range (LoRa), ultra-wideband (UWB), Zigbee, RFID, and vehicle communications Evaluate Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I), Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communications, and the-Air (OTA) software are expected to drive the demand for automotive sensor fusion. In addition, collecting and gathering accurate data about surroundings using sensors is a key aspect of connected car technology. Therefore, significant advancements in sensor technology and communications is expected to provide significant opportunities for the growth of the market.
