Through the constantly morphing world in the Automotive Industry, AI (Artificial Intelligence) is now not just a vision in our rearview mirror but something ever-present and starting to sit in our vehicles with us. Yesterday, cars and trucks were primarily here to transport ourselves, our people, freight, etc. Still, now they are becoming staples of traffic safety, efficiency, innovation, and unmatched conveniences.  Throughout this article, With The JMOR Connection, Inc, you will explore many areas in which AI is becoming involved within the Automotive Industry and how it will affect us. 

Revolutionizing Automotive Design with Generative AI

New AI kicks this up a notch by creating more unique similar designs based on the training data already gathered, Thus allowing the Automotive Industry to give us new generative designs that focus on new shapes, forms, and numerous variations for each specific component based on exact specifications.  Engineered designers may feed in data to make parts more reliable, aerodynamic, eco-friendly, and appealing to customers so they will buy a car. 

Past systems were using AI as well. However, they could only analyze the data and make predictions; however, generative AI kicks this up a notch by creating newer similar designs based on the training data already gathered. 

Did you know that car and truck manufacturers use digital twins in their process to streamline design and simulate actual road conditions?  These simulations will help them affect live road driving situations to see how the vehicle would operate in the current virtual build.

AI-Enhanced Navigation Systems: Smarter Routes and Personalized Travel

Drivers can now use AI to help their onboard navigation system make faster route calculations and consider various factors, including road conditions, closures, accidents, traffic, construction work, and speed. 

AI will also be able to make each subsequent trip more efficient, which will be tweaked based on all the data gathered from previous road trips and the driver’s behavior and preference, such as scenic, fuel efficiency, etc. 

The original navigation systems used CDs, then progressed to DVDs and later to Hard Drives, and soon, SSD Drives powering these systems.

Real-time Alerts & Advanced Vehicle Health Monitoring

Our cars and trucks notified us when something needed our attention for years by displaying a light, a code, and an English-readable message.  Various onboard sensors will be connected from multiple vehicle parts to gather real-time data and report it to the onboard computer. 

Thus, the user can be instantly notified of any abnormality before it becomes a significant issue, thus suggesting preventative maintenance via the dashboard, e-mail, SMS, or even an app on one’s phone.

Revolutionizing Emission Monitoring: AI and Sustainability in the Automotive Industry

Emission monitoring is not just a buzzword being thrown around but something many Automotive Manufacturers take seriously.  Unfortunately, many have no way to track their carbon footprint accurately. However, this will all change soon, thanks to AI.  BCG (Boston Consulting Group) is pursuing an AI-based system to account for greenhouse gas emissions and lower the company’s carbon footprint by over 30%. 

Our society is starting to realize there is a need to regulate company energy by focusing on areas such as Minimizing energy consumption & cost, increasing facilities' performance, applying resource-efficient management of emissions, creating energy with the lowest carbon footprint, creating awareness for carbon emissions, ensure productive compliance delivery. 

Thus, violations will be issued if Automotive Manufacturers don’t pay attention to the three key energy areas:  Energy Efficiency, Emissions Management, and compliance. We all know violations will lead to discrediting brands and many expensive fines.

Enhancing Customer Engagement: AI-Powered Strategies for Dealerships

Dealerships will leverage AI to maintain communication with existing and prospective clients via e-mail, SMS, and other means to strengthen relationships and build trust. This will inevitably get them to buy the first time and many times over.  Whether in a sales capacity, service, or support, the data will help dealerships make quick decisions to keep clients happy and grow their business.

Voice Recognition Evolution: AI-Powered Advancements in Automotive Control Systems

Many third-party players such as Alexa, Siri, and even now, many Automotive Company’s grown state-of-the-art-voice-recognition systems will be available to do more than ever before.  In the past, one could easily ask their car to dial a phone number, change the temperature, check the time, set navigational destinations, and even select radio stations or specific playlists from their iPhone. 

AI will enhance this functionality by allowing access to even more data points on the vehicle's onboard computer control system.  Some of the additional things drivers and passengers will be able to control are but are not limited to asking how much fuel is in your tank, checking your tire pressure, asking about the status of your engine, and checking on current gas or battery levels. 

AI will allow these areas to evolve and add a unique personalization so the vehicle learns a driver’s preferences and makes recommendations on specific contexts, including information gathered over multiple trips.

Driving the Future: AI and Connectivity Transforming Vehicles into Smart, Connected Machines

AI uses historical data from many different sources and devices, changing how we use vehicles daily, including becoming a Connected Vehicle.  Connected Vehicles will utilize App to Car Connectivity, AI for Easing Traffic, Geo-Fencing Protection, communication, Remote Parking, Entertainment, and even security. 

More vehicle manufacturers have an app or create one to share details from the onboard computer with your phone.  Some features vehicle apps will include are Starting/Stopping your Car remotely, Opening the Roof, Unlocking/locking doors, locating your Car by Honking your Horn/Flashing your Lights, and many others, such as setting a specific temperature and radio station. 

One of my favorites is entering a location and sending it to my onboard navigation system, waiting for me to accept the request when I get in my car.

A Road Less Congested: Smart Vehicles and V2V Communication for Safer, Smoother Journeys

Imagine staying out of traffic because your vehicle has pulled insights about your route and adjusted it to avoid real-time congestion.  These systems can even consider construction, road conditions, and more. 

Maybe your friend asked to drive your car, or a worker drives a truck daily, and you will be instantly alerted once the vehicle goes past the pre-set geo-fence area selected by you. 

V2V or Vehicle to Vehicle Communication is when your car/truck can communicate with other vehicles on the same road.  One benefit of this is having trucks that are autonomously driven to maneuver quickly with the highest level of safety and speed.

Smart Parking Made Effortless: AI-Enhanced Connected Cars for Stress-Free Parking and Entertainment

Connected cars will do much more than provide information. They will even help those who didn’t get an A+ in parallel parking.  Your vehicle will park in the area you want and even the specific spot number in a garage, so relax. You don’t need to be an expert in parking, no matter where you drive.  AI Parking Systems will take advantage of data captured from multiple sensors on the vehicle to park your car/truck smoothly and safely every time.  Options for even more enriching entertainment to the driver and various apps to make the trip more pleasurable for your passengers.

Enhancing Safety and Security: Cameras and Sensors in Connected Vehicles

Cameras and sensors on your vehicle are not just to help it operate efficiently and drive efficiently but also for safety.  An owner may instantly be notified if their vehicle was recently hit or scratched via an email or SMS Text message.  Connected cars will also allow the vehicle's exact location to be transmitted to help you find your lost car or send it to Emergency Responders.

Understanding Autonomous Driving: NHTSA's Six Levels of Automation

Did you know The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has defined six levels of Autonomous Driving? 

Level 0:  This is where there is no automation, and the driver is in charge full time of all driving aspects even when safety systems exist, like BSD(Blind Sight Detection, LKA (Lane Keeping Assist), or ABA (Automatic Breaking Assist). 

Level 1 is driver assistance when the driver is responsible for steering and acceleration/deceleration.  Level 2 is referred to as partial automation and takes place when a driving system is responsible for the steering accelerating/deceleration of the vehicle; however, the driver is still responsible for changing lanes, exiting highways/freeways, and making turns. 

Level 3 is called conditional automation and is said to be in use when the vehicle monitors the driving environment, such as intelligent cruise control when it accelerates/decelerates based on the spacing between cars.  Level 2 also uses LKA (Lane Keeping Assist), which uses cameras to monitor the road lines and steer accordingly but requires the driver to be ready to respond.

The Road to Full Automation: Navigating the Levels of Autonomous Driving

When the driving system is said to control all aspects of driving, it is referred to as high automation and appropriate when a driver doesn’t respond.  Vehicles that are entirely autonomous and do not request a driver are classified as level 5.  Understanding AI in the Automotive Industry will bring many benefits; however, it is vital that manufacturers understand and take safeguards to protect our private information (PI).   There has been speculation that the first autonomous vehicle will hit the road. Around 2035, according to Global Data.  Until then, remember to leave early, arrive alive, and keep your hands at 10 and 2 or (9 and 3), heads up, cell phones out of hand, and eyes on the road.
