A window into innovation through patent data

Share this page:

There are four key trends driving change across the automotive industry and its supply chain.

These are loosely categorised as:

  • Diverse mobility
  • Autonomous driving
  • Electrification
  • Connectivity.

Each of these presents challenges and opportunities for automotive manufacturers, their suppliers and a whole league of new disruptive technology players.

There are winners and losers as the industry evolves to meet the demands of consumers along with more stringent environmental & safety standards.

The article below explores the following key points:

  • Investment in Automotive Safety & Security continues to gather pace
  • Significant progress made in Passive Safety Technologies for Pedestrian Protection
  • Pedestrian Safety is a material area of investment within Autonomous Vehicle Research
  • Millimeter Wave Radar is the leading sensing technology ranking ahead of both Lidar and Radar in patent flings over recent years
  • Cyber risk, the vulnerabilities are understood, but there is work to do
