Try conducting additional surveys only during the period from June 2019 to November 2019,
In the future of automobiles, it has been found that "fully automatic driving" and "driving assistance" by autonomous driving technology will improve the safety of the traffic society.
In addition, there is no doubt that convenient and secure functions using the cloud and big data will become widespread as networks become 5G.
Attention is focused on efforts toward energy that is friendly to the global environment.
With the development of automobile technology, more and more people will be able to enjoy the convenience of automobiles.
Through this survey, I strongly felt that "5G" would make a big difference in our society.
As of February 17, 2017, "Transformation (innovation) by" car x cutting-edge technology "& visualization of future society / future prediction of the automobile industry << 2017-2037 >>-future picture edition-" Ver.4 report is as follows He mentioned such points.
The most recent major movements in the automobile industry were "autonomous driving," "networking," "safety," and "eco."
The results of the research competition for "autonomous driving" at each company have begun to take shape, and the range of experiments has steadily expanded from highways to city roads. In addition, those research results have permeated many vehicle models in the form of "automatic driving assistance." The future of self-driving cars on the road has become more realistic than ever.
The automobile itself is becoming more and more "networked" to connect to the Internet, and it was expected that future automobiles would become Wi-Fi spots themselves. In addition, as the in-vehicle network has been strengthened, attention has been focused on providing individual services from traffic lights, signs, guardrails, electric bulletin boards, and so on. Furthermore, the start of high-precision GPS usage has raised expectations for the activation of network services.
Regarding "safety," which is indispensable for automobiles, significant progress has been made from "autonomous driving" and "networking." Furthermore, by researching automobile frames, materials, parts, and various parts, research has been carried out to suppress damage as much as possible in the unlikely event.
Attention was also focused on energy such as hydrogen fuel, which has no impact on the global environment. In addition, the parts and parts that make up automobiles have become ecological, and there have been movements that contribute to the global environment in the manufacturing process of materials.
As of December 15, 2015, "Transformation (innovation) by" car x cutting-edge technology "& visualization of future society / future prediction of the automobile industry << 2015-2035 >>-future picture edition-" Ver.3 report is as follows He mentioned such points.
Attention has been focused on automobile technology that automatically transforms and optimizes the form according to the purpose of use of the user and the scene. These included body deformation, tire deformation, gear operation optimization, and light changes. In addition, attention was focused on new styles such as resin tires and front door cars that overturn the concept of existing automobiles.
As for safety technology, attention has been focused on technology that visualizes what is otherwise invisible and calls attention and arousal. It was the display of the blind spot of the car body, the detection of hiyari hat, the detection of stress, physical condition, etc.
In addition, attention was focused on functions using cutting-edge technologies such as virtual keys, real sensing, and remote control technology. In addition, the results of research on IoT technology, which has been active for several years, have been steadily released, and it was expected that the automobile industry would continue to be a hot market to keep an eye on.
As of November 18, 2014, "Transformation (innovation) by" car x cutting-edge technology "& visualization of future society / future prediction of the automobile industry << 2014-2034 >>-future picture edition-" Ver.2 report is as follows He mentioned such points.
Regarding vehicle technology, development and research centered on digital and cloud were active. By utilizing these data, it became possible to "see things that should not be seen", and it was predicted that the driver's field of vision would be further expanded in the future. In terms of vehicle safety, as radar performance has improved, attention has been focused on contributing to and utilizing cloud data, in addition to improving recognition range and accuracy.
Regarding mobility, more specific efforts were announced and trial introduction was started. In the future, he predicted that mobility would be used more and more in the real world at the same time as the search for scenes that could be introduced progressed. With regard to fully automated driving, research, development, and experiments have been actively conducted in various places, and it has become more concrete and realistic. Along with this, attention has been paid to changes in the premise that fully autonomous driving will be realized, such as the in-vehicle environment caused by fully autonomous driving.
Regarding energy, while the development of next-generation energy is continuing, at the same time, attention has been focused on how to utilize such energy in society beyond the framework of automobiles. Through the survey of "cars x cutting-edge technology," we reaffirmed that the three most important future visions are "aging issues," "environmental issues," and "diversification of lifestyle models." Various studies have been carried out in response to these efforts.
In addition, as of July 16, 2013, "Transformation (innovation) by" car x cutting-edge technology "& visualization of future society / future prediction of the automobile industry << 2013-2033 >>-future picture edition-" Ver.1 report Then, he mentioned the following points.
First, he mentioned the "aging problem." The keywords of "aging problem" were "safety" and "automation". In the present age when the aging is accelerating, the "automatic danger avoidance function" that automatically assists human error in the cognition, judgment, and operation of the elderly has attracted attention. In addition, road-to-vehicle communication using ITS technology and communication technology using vehicle-to-vehicle communication between vehicles have been technologies for safely avoiding dangers that cannot be recognized by humans. Already, in some driving, "machines recognize, judge, and operate" instead of humans. The role of "assisting humans" played by these machines was expected to expand further in the future. In the near future, "humans will assist in the operation of machines". The final form of these automatic assistive technologies was "fully automatic driving."
Next, he also mentioned "environmental problems". The keywords of "environmental problems" were "lightening of the car body" and "next generation fuel". Regarding the weight reduction of the car body, weight reduction by "new material of the car body" and "miniaturization" to be used by the minimum number of people are progressing. Furthermore, "mobility," which has been attracting attention in recent years, was also aimed at creating a new market by renewing the concept of "automobiles," which have already become popular. In addition, the idea of "car sharing", which has been attracting attention in recent years, may eliminate the possibility that an individual owns a car. It was said that future automobiles may change to "things" owned by groups such as companies.
He also said that "environmental performance" and "permanence without depletion" are required for fuel. The use of "finite and environmentally polluting fossil fuels" was being refrained from. On the contrary, the use of natural energy such as sunlight, oxygen, and hydrogen would become the mainstream. He also said that research on second-generation biofuels that do not compete with the "food problem" is urgent. This is because the first-generation biofuels that use food as fuel, such as corn and sugar cane in recent years, cannot survive the era of food shortages. He said that the world is demanding "infinite energy that does not pollute the environment."
Finally, he mentioned "diversification of life models". The unified era of "needing a car for life" due to "diversification of life models" has come to an end. Therefore, in recent years, it has been said that "young people leaving their cars" has been making noise. It was said that the keywords for solving these problems would be "cloud data" and "virtual reality" such as AR, MR, and VR. By introducing "cloud data", it will be possible to "assist life" beyond the boundaries of automobiles. Along with that, the car itself is not playing an active role, but various services that use the car as a window have already begun. He mentioned that it may be an era of pursuing and providing convenience after selling a car, instead of selling a car.
In "virtual reality", it was stated that it would be possible to provide entertainment that is subdivided by the diversification of life models and that is optimal for the hobbies and tastes of individual users. From now on, he said that "the only car in the world full of individuality of users" is required instead of "a unified brand car". For the future, a wide variety of research is being carried out not only for companies and organizations but also for individuals, but even if the shape changes, the concept of automobiles will not disappear. I felt strongly in this survey.
