Personalized, Reconfigurable Interiors in Shared Autonomous Vehicles
Date: Thursday, Feb. 16 2017, 11 a.m. US/EasternThe year 2016 was pivotal in autonomous vehicle development, marking a significant industry transition away from the pursuit of gradually improving semi-autonomy in favor of a renewed push toward fully autonomous and driverless operation.
In recent months, OEMs like Ford, Tesla, BMW, and Volkswagen demonstrated their understanding of the implications for their established models; setting up new smart mobility sub-brands to manage the transition from selling cars to providing the Car as a Service. ABI Research expects 11.4 million shared autonomous vehicles to be on the road by 2030, with an average of 64 users per shared vehicle. This webinar will explore the challenges that OEMs face in delivering adaptable in-vehicle experiences to meet the dynamic and divergent needs of the many different consumers who will use these vehicles as their "third space."
The technologies discussed will include:
- Large and reconfigurable displays for rich multimedia
- Modular and adaptable seating
- In-vehicle cameras
- Recommendation engines
- Isolated sound zones
