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.
