About Automotive ASHR

AHSR were first mandated for use in racing cars and was known as the head and neck support (HANS) device. Many car racing motorsports, including the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR), have now made HANS a compulsory feature to be added in sports cars participating in its events. The HANS device is used to maintain the relative position of the head to the body during a rear-impact collision. In addition, the device transfers the crash energy to stronger regions of the victim's body, including the chest and torso.

The analysts forecast the global automotive ASHR market to grow at a CAGR of 8.74% during the period 2016-2020.

New Report Released: – Global Automotive ASHR Market 2016-2020

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive ASHR market: Lear Corporation, Johnson Controls, and Grammer AG

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “Biometrics essentially refers to methods of measurements based on human biology. This technology aims at accurately identifying physical parameters of individuals, such as voice, finger or palm print, an iris structure and typing rhythm, to predict the correct match. In the past couple of years, the automotive industry has been exploring this technology to enhance the functionality and continence of automobiles. Typically, the application of biometric technology in the automotive segment includes vehicle access, ignition permission, anti-theft systems, and on-board communication program among others.”

According to the report, the quest for automobile safety is considered as one of the key drivers in the development of advanced automobile safety systems. Advanced safety and security features are no longer limited to premium vehicles. Consumers are now more aware of safety systems and technologies, and are taking an interest in improving their vehicles' safety systems. As a result, electronic equipment such as cameras and sensors are now being installed, even in entry-level vehicles. This has increased the demand for in-vehicle electronic devices to examine situations and prevent accidents.

Further, the report states that the very nature of ASHR itself necessitates the combination of software and hardware. Hardware as a term in ASHR usually refers to mechanisms used for actively aligning the system in the event of a rear-end collision. Software refers to controlling algorithms, which directly interface with exterior sensors, the vehicle's inertial measurement unit (IMU), as well as collision detection sensors. These are required to determine the magnitude of movement, which, in turn, is desirable for the ASHR mechanism.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
