Smart vehicles are vehicles that can think, communicate with each other and the transport network, and take action to improve safety and efficient operation. A state-of-the-art road and vehicle system recommends to drivers the best roads to use, advises what their estimated travel time will be, alerts them to traffic hazards ahead, warns them when they stray out of their lane or get too close to the vehicle ahead, suggests where to buy the cheapest fuel, and tells them where to park.
Looking further ahead, the cars we are familiar with may be completely replaced by autonomous electric cars capable of sensing their environment and navigating on their own. Although this might sound like science fiction, companies such as Google, Toyota, and Audi have already built autonomous car models, while experts predict that up to 75% of all vehicles may be self-driving by 2040. A human may choose a destination, but is not required to perform any mechanical operation on the vehicle.
Drones, also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), have opened up a new realm of possibilities as well as challenging current privacy, civil liberty, safety and air-vehicle use laws around the world. UAVs have many potential applications for the smart communities of the future agricultural applications in particular offer huge opportunities for drone usage along with telecommunications, defence, traffic management, mapping, emergency services, weather monitoring, resources exploration, and environmental analysis.
This report explores the developments occurring in the ITS sector including Electric Vehicles, Vehicle to Grid (V2G), autonomous cars and Unmanned Aircraft (drones).
Latest developments:
The consumer drone market is predicted to have significant growth between now and 2025; The first combinations of advanced driver assistance features are now becoming available in some 2016 vehicle models and offer semi-autonomous driving under specific circumstances. Globally, there are five Personal Rapid Transport systems using automated electric vehicles.
