Artificial Intelligence has found its place among the most fascinating ideas of our time. It shows the imagination of visionaries, engineers, and science fiction writers. In many ways, it represents the revolution of data and has disrupted the aspects of modern life.
Many industries have started using Artificial Intelligence, some of them embrace the new technologies faster than others. Automotive Industry is one of those that accepted all the possibilities the new technologies are bringing in everyday life, making it more simple and easy to use. The automotive industry has started using this modern smart technology recently, appearing as a ‘new adopter’.
How does Artificial Intelligence work?
It uses algorithms and data to replicate human abilities to think and make decisions. The algorithms help the system to learn and solve every problem independently.
What is the Role of Artificial Intelligence in the Automotive Industry?
Applications of Artificial Intelligence are used across the whole automotive chain. It is being implemented in every stage of the process, starting from manufacturing, designing, supply chain, production, and the post-production stage.
Its use starts from the manufacturing process with using AI-driven systems that create a schedule and manage the whole workflow.
AI enables robots to work safely alongside humans on assembly lines and factory floors and identify the defects that might appear in components going into cars and trucks. Reduced costs and downtime in the production process while delivering better-finished products is what you get from using AI in the whole production process.
The whole supply chain needs to be well organized in order to provide the best end results. For one car to be complete all parts from different vendors around the globe need to be gathered into one.
Many external factors can slow the supply process as lots of intermediaries are involved and it is a complex process, if one stage is delayed, that affects the whole process. With the help of Artificial Intelligence, all parts involved can automate processes like equipment, tools, and labor requests, predict demands and improve inventory, tracking, and logistics.
Driving assistance and safety
It is not only the production of the automotive vehicles AI is being present and reshaping it as best as could but the driving experience drivers are being attracted to. Many cool features like driver assisting and safety on the road are adding extra value to the car and the experience the driver will have.
An AI software installed in the car can automatically adjust the seat and mirrors, even the temperature when the driver gets on the seat. The head position and eye openness are also connected to the software alerting the driver and detect drowsiness. Self-driving is probably the most attractive feature new cars following the new AI trends have nowadays.
Many accidents are avoided with AI and most of the vehicles detect the body position of the driver for the deployment of the airbags if an accident happens, providing higher safety. Drivers also get alerts on hazardous road conditions, lane crossing, assisting them with steering, monitor blind spots, and even passengers and other vehicles in the traffic. Automotive artificial intelligence has certainly brought the risks of car damaging and possible accidents to the lowest level.
New cars are appearing on the auto market designed with the latest trends in smart technology, and who knows what the rapid growth in AI will bring and inspire carmakers to create in the next few years.
