Automotive applications are increasingly reliant on advanced technology to implement automated functionality. Automated capability is a complex area that spans a range of capabilities from fully automated operation to shared control with the driver. To classify the different automated capabilities, the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) has defined several levels that outline autonomy.
Automated capability requires the deployment of several key technologies, including vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, sensor interfacing and fusion, LiDAR, 4D RADAR, automotive vision and occupant monitoring.
Challenges at the system-of-system level include the critical ability to adapt easily to new standards as draft standards are ratified. These evolving standards include protocols used for both intra-vehicle communication between subsystems and inter-vehicle communication between vehicles and infrastructure. Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure solutions must also be capable of working across a range of geographic locations, which may require the use of different frequency plans for different regions.View Whitepaper
