How Is AI Revolutionising the Auto Industry?

AI has been around for only a few decades but already has changed our lives irreversibly. In the automotive sector, the change is visible as more and more autonomous vehicles are launched into the streets. From design to testing, AI has been implemented in nearly every stage of many cars’ design, development, and production. 

There have been implementations of multiple sensors into cars, giving these manufacturers access to such data. Such data can be used, analysed and studied to derive new functionalities and solve existing problems in the vehicle. For example, the existing data can be taken from cars that have been in an accident, and the sensor data can be analysed to find the problem. Such data helps to make driving more secure and vehicles a lot safer. 

Autonomous cars are well-built with provisions for quick thinking under dangerous conditions and safety manoeuvres that can help save the lives of the passengers. Not only that, there are fully automated parking facilities available around the world. These digital valets can assist you in parking unassisted without human intervention. 

AI has helped create various new models as companies analyse online social media using text mining and sentiment analysis to find their target audience, connect to them, design according to their likings and market the product to them specifically. This also allows the company to personalise each component of the car according to the user’s wishes to appeal to the general public. 

Although there have been some fantastic strides in the field, it is far from perfect. Company conveyor belts haven’t been entirely digitised yet and still need human supervision. Our autonomous cars have nearly reached Type 2 autonomy, and there’s still a lot to go. We can indeed witness some fantastic developments in the coming years from the automotive developers.

What Exactly Is 5G Technology? How Will It Transform Our World?

Increased speed for data communication is not the only result of implementing 5G all over the world. With many countries adopting 5G faster than ever, there have been many kinds of speculations around the technology and its application. In short, 5G is about to revolutionise mobile communication and various fields of science and technology all at once. So, let’s break it down, starting from the basics.

Telecom operators have been extensively building nodes throughout cities to have better-paying customers in the early stage. 5G has been deployed in many countries with an idea in mind. It is to create a fast and has coverage enough to be able to perform a multitude of tasks apart from facilitating mobile communication. 

5G is expected to be extremely useful in these three areas. They are:

  • Low latency communication
  • Massive Machine Type Communication
  • Enhanced Mobile Broadband

Once low latency communication is established, this will pave the way for advancement to many technologies in use today. Let’s take an example. Autonomous cars have reached a point where they see so much data that the processing power required for computation can be achieved only through dedicated computers at data centres. If low latency communication is established, there can be communication with hubs by each car to make informed decisions without having to analyse it themselves. 

Like traffic management, IoT can help machines automate daily vehicle congestion and pave the way for emergency vehicles. Not only that, there can be communication between cars to avoid accidents. 5G can also automate industrial processes with the help of low latency and reliable networks. 

There are also applications in AR and VR. Technicians and doctors can have long-distance communication with their clients and patients to advise through complicated procedures in real-time. Technicians can remotely see the overlay on the machine and see the faulty parts without being there physically.  The future is bright for 5G and is about to shine ever brighter.
