More than one billion vehicles already populate our roads and motorways. Worldwide, more than 50 million jobs are directly or indirectly linked to the automotive industry. These numbers will rise even further in the coming years.
The automotive industry bears an enormous responsibility, both economically and socially. Commercial as well as private vehicles will have to advance and be optimised if they are to continue playing this role in future. Not only customers, but policymakers and society as a whole now place very high demands on automobiles: safety, comfort and exceptional performance whilst producing relatively low emissions and consuming little fuel.
The looming threat of oil scarcity is driving up the price of energy and fuelling the search for sustainable alternatives. Many governments around the world are trying to initiate an energy revolution by introducing a host of laws and regulations with the aim of phasing out oil and introducing renewable energies.
The automotive industry is forced now more than ever to face these challenges and develop innovative solutions collectively.
The electrification of the powertrain is a major step on the path to greater efficiency and environmental sustainability. Whether hybrid or pure electric vehicle systems, the potential is major and diverse, ranging from the optimisation of some ancillary units to hybridisation and the complete electrification of the vehicle.
In the future customers will also demand intelligent support in their vehicles for greater comfort, safety and driving pleasure. A variety of driver assistance systems will make it easier for the driver to have and maintain control over the vehicle at all times. Adaptive cruise control, braking and blind spot assistants are just a few examples of the many useful systems that will provide drivers with optimal support.
