It has been more than 100 years since Henry Ford succeeded in mass-producing the T-Type Ford in the United States, and the popularization of cars progressed.Now, the environment surrounding the car is about to change dramatically.The key word is CASE.

“CASE” is a word made with the four initials: Connected, Self-Driving, Autonomous, Sharing, Shared & Service, and Electrification. It was first used in 2016 when Daimler announced its medium- to long-term strategy.

The car is already equipped with a large number of electronic devices to control various functions, and together with the car navigation system, it has the function as an information terminal in itself.The internet is expected to expand services such as entertainment as well as security and safety.

The shift from responding to global environmental problems to electric vehicles is accelerating, and the flow of the sharing economy is closing in on the world of cars.

These major changes in the internet society show that the world of cars is no longer limited to the automotive industry.

Fast-growing self-driving car market

Among these cases, automated driving has a particularly big impact.According to the Global Market Size Forecast for ADAS Advanced Driving Support Systems and Automated Driving Systems, announced by Yano Economic Research Institute, the number of vehicles installed in 2018 will be 23.85 million, but 56.07 million in 2023. By 2030, the number is expected to grow significantly to 83.9 million units.

However, even if it is said automatic driving in one bite, the operation and the range etc. are defined for each stage, and it is divided into six stages from level 0 to the level by the standard established by the Standard Organization SAE International of the United States which is a substantial international standard.

Of these, level 1 is equipped with either automatic braking, ACC Adaptive Cruise Control, lane maintenance function (LKAS: Lane Keep Assist System) to maintain between cars with the front car, Level 2 corresponds to the case where these functions are mounted in combination.

In Japan, honda’s Sensing and Nissan’s ProPilot vehicles fall under level 2, but until level 2, it is positioned as “driving support”, and “automatic driving” will be level 3 or later.

Incidentally level 3 system performs operation, it is necessary to correspond to the driver of the ride on demand, the system performs the operation completely at the level 4 and 5, the driver’s correspondence is defined as not required.

If you look at yano economic research’s global market size forecast for level 3 and beyond, the results of 2018 are zero, but by 2023, 420,000 units will be 220,000, level 4/5 will be 200,000, and by 2030, 19.03 million units will be 3.73 million units. It is projected to be 15.3 million vehicles, and the growth of fully self-driving vehicles from level 4 onwards is remarkable.

Currently, the development of self-driving cars and systems is underway in japan, the United States, Europe, and other countries around the world, but the center is still fully self-driving vehicles.In the United States, in addition to automakers that have struggled for a long time, such as GM and Ford, google and other IT giants have also entered the market.With many start-upcompanies, each company and group are struggling.
