There are different types of x-by-wire technologies in the marketplace like throttle-by-wire systems, brake-by-wire systems, steer-by-wire systems and park-by-wire systems. At present, these technologies are implemented separately in the engine control, braking or steering system. The x-by-wire technology has been in use in aerospace and is now finding its application in the automotive industry. One of the major factors helping the automotive manufacturers to incorporate this feature in vehicles is the availability of a variety of semiconductor ICs that are cheap and can meet the cost targets to provide control, power and communications required for these systems.
Stringent fuel-efficiency laws, advancements in research maximizing the marginal time savings by substituting mechanical linkages with electrical ones, high market penetration, and a decrease in cost as the systems become mainstream gradually and a relatively high purchasing power are some of the factors that drive the x-by-wire market in Japan. The replacement of mechanical parts by electrical systems also contributes to making vehicles lighter by weight, which improves fuel efficiency of cars – something which has been made mandatory in many developed and developing countries around the world. A few other factors driving the market include the switch to electronic systems in modern vehicles and shift toward autonomous experience. These technologies have become more efficient and affordable as well as fuel efficiency laws which have become more stringent and comprehensive due to which the market for x-by-wire market is bound to grow.
The high cost of systems and associated components, ongoing research leading to the inadequate speed of updating existing research and subpar implementation and enforcement of the fuel-efficiency laws are some of the restraints to the adoption and proliferation of x-by-wire systems in Japan.
