In order to meet growing consumer and regulatory demands for improved safety, comfort, energy efficiency and reduced emissions, modern vehicles are fitted with a range of sensors that collect and process a vast amount of data from both inside and outside of the vehicle.
While EVs (Electric Vehicles) have been developed since 1884, when the first production electric car was launched, it is only in the last five years that these EVs have become a genuine contender for consumers when picking their next vehicle. However, the future success and viability of EVs is largely dependent on the infrastructure to charge them.
For the past 10 years, the automotive industry has been undergoing a most significant technological transformation. Car manufacturers are focusing on more eco-friendly and technologically advanced solutions, in order to sustain sales levels. The driving factors for automotive sales have been passenger comfort, vehicle safety features, improved emissions, fuel efficiency and car infotainment for some time.
