Automotive Active Suspension System Market: Overview
Automotive market being one of the most important and lucrative market in today’s era, continually go through technological transformations, so as to introduce various distinctive features in vehicles which makes the vehicle more attractive, safe, easy to handle and thus customer friendly. The constant technological advancement in the automotive equipment segment has made the automotive suspension systems way smarter, unlike the passive suspension systems where the movement is determined by the road surface, active suspension system controls the vertical movement of vehicle relative to vehicle body implementing an onboard system that senses the force applied to the wheels and thus adjusts various mechanical connections to maintain the chassis level. A suspension system in which only the viscous damping coefficient of the shock absorber is adjusted is called as semi-active suspension system. The active suspension system market today is an important part of suspension system market and finds its major application in high end luxury and sports cars, and also some medium range cars & commercial vehicles. The automotive active suspension system are available in market with various commercial name, varying company to company such as Magic Body Control by Mercedes-Benz, MagneRide developed by Delphi, PASM Porsche Active Suspension Management by Porsche. The active suspension system enhances vehicle dynamics such as ride comfort, vehicle control and stability.
A turbocharger is a type of forced induction system that utilises energy of exhaust gases from the engines via a turbine. This helps in the induction of an ample volume of air into combustion chamber. The power output of the engine can be enhanced by increasing the volume of inlet fuel air mixture, which could be easily achieved with use turbochargers. It utilises the energy of exhaust gases from the engine to compress the inlet air and feed it into the engine to create a better air to fuel ratio. Turbochargers are considered one of the most important automotive accessories in today’s time not only to boost acceleration, but to increase the efficiency of the engines in terms of power and output.
Vehicles create the energy while executing various functions. The energy generated by the vehicles can be used for providing additional power to the engine and other vehicle parts. The vehicle converts 25-30% of its fuel energy to move the vehicle, and the rest of the energy is wasted through the radiator and engine exhaust. To convert the heat extracted from hot exhaust gases into electrical power, exhaust energy recovery system is used.
Soiled and dirt-laden windshields and headlights are a risk to any driver. Washer systems assists in cleaning off the soil and dirt from the windshield and headlights, increasing the safety of the drivers and passengers in the vehicle. Automotive washer systems thus helps keeping the windshields and headlights clean, for an unrestricted view in any weather condition.
The automotive platooning systems is defined as the collection of vehicles that travel together and which are in active coordination with each other. The vehicle platooning system uses different technologies to attain safe and competent transport. Platooning systems decrease the distance between two vehicles using electronic and mechanical coupling. This system allows the vehicles to accelerate or brake simultaneously. In addition to this, there are many advantages of automotive platooning systems. Some of them are increased traffic and fuel efficiency, more safety and driver comfort. There has been a lot of research and development activities over the past few years to make this concept a reality. The major players are also participating in several projects such as SARTRE, PATH, GCDC, Energy ITS, and many more, where this technique is tested and verified. The automotive platooning system is expected to be very lucrative market in the upcoming years.
The automotive steering system market has evolved from the convention rigid steering system to the flexible power assisted steering systems. The continuous increase in the demand of vehicles has boosted the growth for automotive steering system market. Present day steering system provides easy maneuverability of vehicle to take smooth turns, reduced driver fatigue, better vehicle stability and thus ensure reduced risk of accident by having better control over vehicle. The power assisted steering systems reduces the power applied on wheel by driver and also absorbs road shocks. Thus the market has shifted completely from manual to power-assisted steering systems. Today these systems has become integral part of almost every vehicle manufactured in the market. The steering system market comprises of various technologically advanced systems such as EPS, HPS and EPHS. Many players in the steering system & steering components manufacturing are working on the future developments in the automotive steering system, the future prospects of development in the steering system covers various areas such as improvement of ITS technology, steer-by-wire system, and development of control technology for steering system. One such top technology is the direct adaptive steering that utilizes electronic signal to transmit driver steer input faster than other systems. Thus this advancements will continue to fuel the growth of automotive steering market.
Automotive Belts are power transmission belts that provide a connective link between two parallel rotating shafts, these shafts are fixed with pulleys upon which the belt is looped. Hence, power transmission occurs by friction from the driving shaft to the driven shaft smoothly through these belts.
Automotive electronics comprises of electrically operated systems deployed in vehicles. Electronic fuel injection, airbag, advanced driver assistance and infotainment are some of the areas where automotive electronic systems is primarily used in order to increase the overall efficiency of the combined system.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a special form of the conventional cruise control systems which is used to maintain and control the speeds of cars and other intelligent vehicles. Adaptive cruise control is an intelligent form of cruise control systems that slows down and speeds up automatically to keep pace with the car in front of you. It dosent make use of any satellite, any roadside infrastructures or any cooperative support from other vehicles, rather it uses sensors and lasers to control the speed of vehicles. The main impact of adaptive cruise control system is on driver’s safety as by adjusting the distance between according to the traffic conditions. The overall process is achieved through a radar headway sensor, longitudinal controller and digital signal processor. Adaptive cruise control systems are being enhanced to guide through collision warning capabilities to warn drivers through audio or visual signals that a collision is imminent and that evasive steering is required. Now-a-days, Adaptive cruise control system is often paired with a pre-crash system which alerts the driver and often starts braking. Adaptive cruise control is also known as autonomous cruise control, active cruise control, intelligent cruise control or radar cruise control.
The electrification of automotive components is increasing rapidly as the consumers’ preference is shifting from manual functions to sophisticated automated systems. Such technological changes are increasingly demanding for tools which can detect the problem or the malfunctioning of electronic system used in cars with ease.
