Scanning Advanced Automobile Technology



Hamid Gharavi, K V. Prasad, P. Ioannou


The progress of some of the key electrical, electronics, communications, controls and software technologies that enable in-vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) functions is presented, in historical, current & futuristic contexts. These technologies enable the vehicle manufacturers to address major societal demands for cleaner tailpipe emissions, improved fuel economy, enhanced safety and reduced traffic congestion, while allowing the manufacturers to rapidly respond to consumer demand for vehicles that are quieter, handle better, ride smoothly, and offer portable digital device & roadside wireless connectivity.
