Automaker’s Focus on Sensor Innovations Befits the Market’s Progressive Outlook

Increasing reliance on electronic systems to enhance passenger safety, comfort and automobile performance have led automakers to implement sensor technologies in the advanced vehicle models. Sensor innovation is one of the most trending landscape in the automotive industry witnessing significant stakeholder attention in terms of investments. Among multiple sensor technologies under development, occupant classification system technology such as an occupant gesture-recognition is one of the key sensing technologies where automotive OEMs’ focus is concentrated.

In the past half a decade, the occupant classification system manufacturers have witnessed a number of collaborations to implement these technologies in new automobile models. For instance, in 2015, Fraunhofer ISC researchers in collaboration with Isringhausen GmbH launched smart driver seat which has a sensor-based gesture control system.

Air Bags – A Mandatory Safety Feature in Automobiles Ensures Occupant Classification System Market Sustenance

The occupant classification system (OCS) is a part of the air bag system and referred to as the supplemental restraint system. Deployment of air bags has significantly reduced the driver and passenger fatalities. Going beyond this fact, automakers are focusing on implementing safety sensing system to mitigate impacts of erroneous air bags deflation and reduce instances of faulty airbag fatalities.

The National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA) has mandated that from 2006, all automobiles on the U.S. roads be equipped with an automatic suppression system with an aim to avoid child or adult fatalities. Further, NHTSA has funded several projects to test occupant classification system such as an adaptive occupant restraint system and crash sensing system.
