Business Insights

It was not long ago that cameras were a rarity on all but luxury cars. In 2018, as many automotive cameras were shipped as were vehicles! This presentation will quantify the likely future growth, and explore the applications and industry forces that are driving camera fitment. The automotive industry is also undergoing unprecedented change, with long-standing vehicle architectures and business models under threat. This presentation will thus also look at the wider automotive landscape as it impacts the embedded vision community, examining topics such as centralized vs. decentralized architectures and the impact of automated driving on the value chain.
