Leading in self-driving technology, Taiwan's smart mobility business opportunities take shape
The automobile industry has encountered the biggest transformation in over a century. With the successive introduction of new technologies, what once was a vision of smart mobility is gradually becoming a reality. Although historically Taiwan was not home to large automakers, the supply chain is actually rather comprehensive, especially for self-driving technology. At present, most domestic ICT companies are actively investing in the technology and gradually establish their reputations in the industry. If Taiwan's automotive supply chains can integrate with the ICT industry, vigorous potential for future development can be expected. However, in terms of system and functional requirements and the ecosystem, the automobile industry is quite unique compared with other industries. Self-driving cars not only face a complex situation in a real-world driving scenario, but they must also pass extensive testing before any new feature can be installed on the vehicles. On the topic "Ubiquitous: Tech Leads from the Future," DIGITIMES Research analyst Yi-Fan Chen, and Liang-Kuang Chen, associate professor of the NTUST Department of Mechanical Engineering as well as director of its SEV Research Center, made a deep-dive analysis of the development of current regulatory standards and human control system design considerations for self-driving cars.
