GNSS Market Report including CAD
The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Market Report, by the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (European GNSS Agency), is a comprehensive source of knowledge and information on the dynamic, global GNSS market. The report is published every two years, with the latest edition released in 2019.
The report provides in-depth analysis of global trends and the latest developments in terms of shipments, revenues and the installed base of GNSS devices and applications in key GNSS market segments – both mass market and professional. The ten segments covered are: Consumer Solutions, Road, Manned Aviation, Drones, Maritime, Emergency Response, Rail, Agriculture, Geomatics and Critical Infrastructure.
In the recent report (Issue 6, 2019), Connected and Automated Driving (CAD) is mentioned under the road transportation and automotive section. The report expresses that connected and automated driving is transforming not only the way people use their cars, but also the way the vehicles are operated and integrated in the connected mobility ecosystem. It also underlines that connected vehicles and the development of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) are helping to shift the value creation in automotive industry from hardware to software, with vehicles becoming more intelligent automated; and from product to service.
The report shows also some “key market trends in road transportation and automotive sector:
• Value creation in the automotive industry is shifting: from hardware to software, with vehicles becoming more intelligent automated; and from product to service, thanks to connected vehicles and the development of the Mobility-as-a-Service paradigm
• As the data generated by the vehicle is at the core of new business models, OEMs internalise the technologies generating this data, including positioning and GNSS
• The development of in-vehicle positioning engines offers the opportunity to both OEMs and solution providers to leverage a unique GNSS receiver to support added-value services
• As automation requires vehicles to rely on very stringent positioning performance, there is a push towards increased robustness and accuracy of satellite navigation solutions”.
The report also talks about the need for high definition maps for CAD, cyber-security and IoT in connected and automated driving.
