Key Automotive Standards Required to Address Mounting Cybersecurity Challenges

The increased penetration rate of digitized automotive systems and connected vehicles over the past decade has given rise to an entirely new array of cyberattacks and threat vectors. This emerging threat horizon has caught even major car manufacturers, service enablers, and connectivity providers off guard, and they are now being called to deal with these new attack vectors that target not only secondary automotive applications (e.g., infotainment and navigation) but also primary critical functions related to vehicle performance, system, data and network security, and, most importantly of all, driver and passenger safety.

China's AI Ambition Gets a Reality Check as the U.S. Reclaims Top Spot in Global AI Investment

A year removed from its ascension to the top in global Artificial Intelligence (AI) venture capital investment, China is now bumped back to second place by the resurgent United States.

AR Smart Glass Manufacturers Keeping Pace with Market Demands, Adding Features and Reducing Prices to Accelerate Smart Glass Adoption

Augmented Reality (AR) smart glass manufacturers continue to invest and improve their AR devices, despite the intense competition of smartphones and the uncertainty in the consumer market in terms of smart glasses massive adoption. In 2019, the AR smart glass market is significantly richer, with some companies standing out with their innovations. Technological advancements, in combination with affordable prices, will further drive growth and total shipments, which are expected to reach 20 million units in 2024, finds ABI Research.

“Weight distribution, input method options, wide field of view (FoV), strong processors, and extended battery life are the main key features that manufacturers updated in their latest devices to remain competitive and deliver more immersive and realistic experiences to the users,” says Eleftheria Kouri, Research Analyst. “More affordable prices in combination with technological improvements and supporting end-to-end platform and software solutions are proof that the AR market is more mature and able to overcome customer adoption challenges and meet demanding enterprise use cases and needs.”

Twice

Just how private are voice-activated smart speakers? Just how secure is footage captured by Wi-Fi cameras? Just how compatible – and smart – are smart home products? These are just a few questions retailers trying to sell fancy new smart home products face from consumers on the sales floor.

"Certainly some consumers will have concerns about video camera security vulnerabilities or security/privacy issues across smart devices in the home," said Jonathan Collins, research director at ABI Research.
