How AI Will Transform Your Personal Vehicle Experience in India

AI, autonomous vehicles, connected cars, ADAS – these are not just buzzwords. The automotive industry is rapidly changing, and in large part due to growing consumer demand and global trends.

What is next?

The usage of AI for in-vehicle applications is set to increase tremendously over the next decade, as suggested by IHS Analysts research.

According to the report, AI-based installations in vehicles were 8% in 2015 and this is expected to rise to 109% by 2025 since these systems are increasingly becoming standardized in infotainment as well as autonomous vehicle applications. The reports also state that the shipment of AI systems is expected to increase from seven million in 2015 to 122 million by 2025.

Also, with the ever-increasing demand in urban mobility, the vehicle population has been tremendously growing. One natural concern that comes with this increase is traffic congestion, which will plague the economic development as well. AI-powered vehicles are seen as crucial in helping reduce the impact of booming traffic populations on city infrastructure and sustainability by:

· Helping reduce traffic congestion and commuting times

· Reducing the need for parking space

· Improving road safety

AI-powered vehicles are also likely to increase the carpooling options, something that will bring noticeable advantages to the environment. These intelligent vehicles will not stay constricted to the American, British and Chinese roads. Instead, they will also pave their ways into the Indian subcontinent.

India truly represents a great market for implementing a system with AI gave the abundance of data points available, which makes the entire process of training an AI system easier. Below are some of the potential use cases of AI in India –

1. Traffic De-Congestion – Traffic decongestion is already a top priority in all major cities and AI can help in making intuitive decisions for routes based on live traffic. Intelligent infotainment systems, which are connected, can intelligently divert traffic from areas of deep congestion and maintain flow.

2. Driver safety – What if AI-based systems can make the decision on your speed levels and if you are about to hit the car in front? Alternatively, it can take control of the car when you are in bumper-to-bumper traffic, and ensure there is a limited possibility of human errors and judgements? These are a few realistic use-cases in India, which Artificial Intelligence can resolve, but at the same time, these will also require an environment to support.

3. AI for personalization – This is a huge trend among Indians who truly like to be unique. From personalizing the kind of music we listen to setting the right temperature in the car or making that daily call to home during the commute, AI can make every day driving experience truly unique.

While Indian automakers and consumers are excited about this magical technological advancement, they also need to understand the opportunities and challenges this technology brings.AI is still in its budding phase and has a lot of scope for improvements

India, as already indicated, will be a favourite market for AI proliferation. This will be accentuated by the rapid adoption of cloud-based services. With the decreasing cost of data storage in the cloud along with access to powerful basic analytics programs, the potential for building quick POCs (Proofs-of-Concept) to implement basic AI features in the cars in India has increased significantly.

Although we are far away from having truly driverless cars in India due to endemic issues with roads, driving styles; AI truly could make an entry in India through personalization, which is close to the hearts of millions. The accumulation of intelligence technology, together with the formulation of relevant laws and regulations and the acceptance of people, will help achieve rapid growth and ultimately promote intelligent car popularity.

Considering that Indians are already warming up to the Echoes and Homes of the world, this is definitely worth a bet to wager.
