Apple and Samsung’s Early UWB Smartphone Entry Spurs Adoption to Nearly One-Third of All Smartphone Shipments by 2025

Ultra-Wideband (UWB) has experienced a large amount of growing momentum in the past few months, with an increasing number of companies offering devices or chipsets that support the accurate, cm-level, real-time ranging and positioning technology. UWB provides a highly accurate, low-power consuming, robust, and secure wireless technology for locating a device’s position, movement, and distance. Smartphones are set to lead the UWB market thanks to Apple’s early UWB entry. ABI Research forecasts that UWB-enabled smartphone shipments will increase from over 42 million shipments in 2019, or 3% of smartphones, to nearly 514 million shipments in 2025, or nearly 32.5% of smartphones – a total of over 2 billion shipments in between 2019 and 2025.

Smartphones will see an increase in the integration of UWB, providing users with the ability to accurately locate other UWB-enabled devices, unlock doors or vehicles, and automatically wireless pay for products,” said Stephanie Tomsett, Research Analyst. “While other devices will also have the ability to provide these use cases and others, the vast shipment numbers associated with smartphones will allow the devices to lead the UWB market.”

Asset Tracking Device Shipments Drive IoT Expansion and Grow 51% Year-on-Year Through 2024

Asset tracking is one of the highest growth application segments for the Internet of Things (IoT). According to a new report by ABI Research, asset tracking device shipments will see a 51% year-on-year device shipment growth rate through 2024. Expanding LPWAN coverage, technological maturity, and the associated miniaturization of sophisticated devices are key to moving asset tracking from traditionally high-value markets to low-value high-volume markets, which will account for most of the tracker connection and shipment numbers.

Hardware devices for the asset tracking market are primarily dominated by the need to balance power consumption, form factor, and device cost. Balance and compromise between these three must be achieved based on the use-case and are dictated by the business case and possible return on investment for the customer,” said Tancred Taylor, Research Analyst

How to make cities ready for autonomous vehicles, and AVs ready for cities

Automotive World (written by Principal Analyst James Hodgson)

For any disruptive technology, targeted at any market, there must be a ‘killer app’: a concrete use-case with a well-defined ROI to dictate investment, M&A, and go-to-market strategies. For autonomous vehicle (AV) technologies, that ‘killer app’ is the Mobility as a Service (MaaS) opportunity.

While improving driver safety through better obstacle detection and collision avoidance can be achieved with active safety technology, only a comprehensive AV system can kickstart MaaS into the mainstream, driving down the cost per mile of shared mobility modes to near parity with car ownership.
