Automotive Interiors and Environmental Monitoring – Automotive and Transportation TOE – Research and Markets


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Automotive Interiors and Environmental Monitoring – Automotive and Transportation TOE” report to their offering.

This issue of Automotive and Transportation TOE identifies developments and innovations in automotive interiors and environmental monitoring, including cabin air quality sensors, innovative seats, image sensors, lightweight materials, navigation systems, dashboards and instruments, and human-machine interaction.

The purpose of the Automotive and Transportation (AT) Technology Opportunity Engine (TOE) is to raise awareness of global technology innovations in self-propelled ground-based mobile platforms that are not only technically significant, but potentially offering commercial value. Each monthly AT TOE provides subscribers valuable descriptions and analyses of 8 noteworthy innovations, written by a qualified TechVision automotive engineer affiliated with SAE International (the Society of Automotive Engineers). The main focus is on highway-licensed motor vehicles (light, medium and heavy). Passenger cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, scooters and railway locomotives are within the product scope, energized by any fuel.

Many of the innovations concern power-trains (internal combustion engines, turbines, battery electrics, fuel cell electrics, hybrid-electrics), as well as drive-trains (including transmissions), interiors-seating and displays, advanced materials-as for body/chassis, wireless connectivity, and self-driving technology that is currently receiving so much attention. The AT TOE outlines and evaluates each innovation, notes which organizations and developers are involved, projects the likely timing for commercialization, furnishes a patent analysis, and provides valuable strategic insights for industry stakeholders.

The need for low power, smaller, lighter sensors with enhanced performance attributes and minimal false alarms is driving innovations in the sensors space. The Sensors and Control cluster covers innovations pertaining to technologies such as wireless sensors and networks, energy harvesting, MEMS and nanosensors, Terahertz, ubiquitous/smart sensors, CBRNE, quantified-self, sensor fusion, M2M communications, and drones.
