The Evolution of Vehicular Communication Systems

Emerging vehicle-to-vehicle technology based on Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) -- using the IEEE 802.11p automotive W-Fi standard -- will gradually be introduced in new vehicles, according to the latest market study by ABI Research.

Vehicular communication systems are a new type of wireless network in which vehicles and roadside units are the communicating nodes -- providing each other with information, such as safety warnings and traffic information.

As a cooperative approach, these interactive automated systems can be used for emergency alerts -- to help avoid highway accidents and upcoming traffic congestion.

This proposed technology deployment will be driven by government policy mandates and/or automotive industry initiatives, resulting in a penetration rate of 61.8 percent by 2027.

"In the U.S. market there is a real possibility for a Department of Transportation mandate, depending on the outcome of the large scale V2X trial being held in Michigan," said Dominique Bonte, VP and practice director at ABI Research.

In Europe the CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium -- which counts 12 car OEMS -- has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to deploy cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (C-ITS) in Europe from 2015.

It's based upon common technical specifications in line with the 2010 EU Directive calling for an urgent implementation of cooperative ITS technology. Similar initiatives exist in Asia (Japan, South Korea and China).

Despite increasing momentum driven by both government regulators and the automotive industry, the deployment of V2V and even more so V2I will take time, as the real safety benefits of V2X only can be realized when a sufficiently large part of the installed vehicle base is connected.

However, complimentary technologies such as ADAS on the low end and cellular connectivity on the high end will allow emulating some of the ITS functionality defined for V2X.

In particular, the rapid emergence of 4G LTE Advanced -- featuring very low latency -- is a good candidate for offering vehicle-to-vehicle communications, awaiting the widespread availability of dedicated V2V technology.

ABI Research now offers quantitative forecast data on Intelligent Transportation Systems, including hardware shipments and revenues, installed base, and penetration rates by region from now to 2027.

How the COVID-19 Pandemic Advanced Telehealth Adoption

The global COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation across many industries. As an example, consider the healthcare sector. Some routine medical situations can be diagnosed and resolved online. While the trend was already in motion long before the pandemic arrived, the adoption of telehealth increased rapidly in 2020. Around the world, many governments responded to the disruption and inaccessibility of healthcare facilities by loosening previous regulations and restrictions on the practice of telemedicine apps, and teleconsultations. This decision resulted in the mass adoption of these medical services among patients and providers. According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, telemedicine will save the healthcare industry $21 billion in costs by 2025 -- that's rising from an estimated $11 billion in 2021. This increased app usage represents an anticipated growth rate of over 80 percent in the next four years. Telehealth Services Market Development The co

How Edge Computing and AI Applications Drive IoT

The global pandemic has accelerated the adoption of emerging technologies, including edge computing and TinyML. As more CIOs and CTOs seek ways to capture and process data at the edge of their enterprise IT network, the demand has fueled investment for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the global edge Artificial Intelligence (AI), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and turnkey service market will grow at a CAGR of 46 percent between 2020 and 2025 to reach $7.2 billion. This is 25 percent of the global edge AI market, which is estimated to be $28 billion by 2025. The market is comprised of edge AI chipsets, SaaS, and turnkey services, as well as professional services. As the benefits of edge AI becomes more obvious, enterprises are searching for edge AI solutions that offer low latency and are fully secured to assist them with data-based analysis or decision-making. Edge Artificial Intelligence Market Development "The

Worldwide Semiconductor Demand will Accelerate in 2021

The technology sector is a key driver of the U.S. economy. Therefore, components like semiconductors play an important role in America's future. The 'CHIPS for America Act' is a new law that calls for incentives on domestic semiconductor manufacturing and investments in research and development. But these renewed efforts will require years of ongoing commitment. Meanwhile, despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the semiconductor market performed well in 2020. However, new demand by industry was uneven throughout last year due to global lockdowns, remote working adoption, and shifts in consumer and commercial buying behavior. Worldwide semiconductor revenue grew to $464 billion in 2020 -- that's an increase of 10.8 percent compared to 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Semiconductor Technology Market Development IDC now forecasts that the semiconductor market will reach $522 billion in 2021, that's a 12.5 percent
