The automotive industry has often received aid from the technology sector to make disruptive innovations. Integration of AI, IoT, and Blockchain has accelerated the digitalization process in the automotive industry. With the quickened digitization of the world, the automotive industry is outfitting to a gigantic change in 2021. The area has seen exceptional and exciting bends in the road in the previous ten years.The industry is step by step moving towards the future age, wherein automakers will wind up creating more income and clients will end up getting a charge out of inventive driving arrangements. That is why we have brought a list of the top automotive industry to look out for in 2021. These trends are as follows.
- AI-based autonomous vehicle
AI-based autonomous vehicles are the leaders in the automotive industry. Artificial intelligence is now empowering brilliant travel techniques through self-driving vehicles. These vehicles don’t need drivers and depend on sensors and programming for routing and control. Autonomous vehicles are intended to decrease the requirement for human drivers and make regular vehicle simple. Studies mirror that there are around 1,400 self-driving vehicles on the US streets today. Even though when it’s anything but a major number, the difference as the main priority in individuals to go for or trust autonomous vehicles is radically expanding.
Huge players like Tesla, Google, Uber are firmly stretching the boundaries of autonomous vehicles, making them more solid. Nonetheless, the Covid-19 pandemic was a success which briefly amazed the improvement of self-driving vehicles. With the autonomous vehicle industry assessed to be worth US$556 million by 2026, investments will probably keep on pouring in.
- VR/AR showrooms
We should start from the earliest starting point and discussion about the effect of new advanced advances in transit we pick and purchase cars. Both computers generated simulation and enlarged reality appeared not too far off a very long while back. In any case, this year is required to be a significant milestone for their business utilization. As indicated by Statista, the worldwide VR/AR market size will develop to 20.4 billion U.S. dollars in 2021 which is twice as large as it was in 2018. What’s the significance here for the automotive organizations? All things considered, VR headsets are getting increasingly moderate. For instance, Oculus Rift S, another VR headset by Facebook Oculus, costs just $399. What’s more, applications with implanted AR are not, at this point the selective things of the gaming industry. Henceforth, with regards to buying a car, customers additionally hope to get an innovation upgraded insight.
It’s a given that a decent site is an absolute necessity for any automotive business — from producers to vendors. Yet, it is not just that. These days, a showroom doesn’t have to have all the vehicles on location. To see and feel all the models, customers simply need to put on the VR headset. For instance, the Audi VR Experience lets potential car purchasers digitally arrange a future car. It permitted the organization to build the number of new car deals by 60-70% in the pilot showroom. Businesses that sell utilized cars additionally utilize the computer-generated simulation innovation to grandstand the variety ready to move without carrying these things to customers.
- EV start-ups and EV open platforms wake up
The accomplishment of Tesla has motivated numerous different entrepreneurs to follow on the strides of Elon Musk. These new EV start-ups are as of nowhere and have demonstrated their items however 2021 will mark the start of creation for EV newcomers like Fisker, Lucid or Rivian. Other EV start-ups like Xpeng and Nio, which were confronting headwinds in the not so distant past, are additionally now seeing noticeable deals development, which is a promising sign for their future.
This pioneering hurry to shape the following EV start-up was additionally seen by others as a chance to start offering open-source EV platforms. These would empower upcoming EV start-ups to handily build up another car by basically embracing an ‘off-the-rack’ platform. In 2019 Volkswagen had just reported its MEB electric platform would be accessible to different companies on an open-source model. Nonetheless, Foxconn and Geely are presently additionally putting on the market open-source EV platforms. While since quite a while ago run the market won’t be sufficient for a few EV platform suppliers, these activities will make it simple for new participants to join the EV race.
- 3D printed vehicles
Many accept that 3D printing isn’t only another tech pattern yet the fate of the automotive industry. Some driving makers as of now utilize this innovation to deliver separate parts for cars. In any case, the vehicles of this sort have been more trials as opposed to items for buyers. Be that as it may, the circumstance will change in 2021. The principal mass-delivered 3D printed car was made by XEV, an Italian startup, as a team with Polymaker, a Chinese 3D printing organization. Practically all parts of the vehicle are 3D printed, aside from windows, tires, suspension, and seats. The car is called LSEV and it is intended to appear on European and Asian markets during this year.
The arrival of LSEV is a significant occasion for the entire business area. Its declared cost comprises just $7.500 and all parts required for one thing can be made in only 3 days. Presumably, LSEV will win customers’ hearts. Henceforth, to remain serious, other carmakers ought to likewise start pondering bringing down creation expenses and time.
The new year will carry with it new energy. With an unpleasant year behind them, the automotive industry will be looking to 2021 to get directly back onto the lines of development.
