The concept of self-driving vehicles has been around for a long period of time. Artificial intelligence is now being used to realize self-driving cars as data generated from sensors such as includes LIDAR, video camera, position estimators, and distance sensors helps the automobile identify the surrounding environment and evaluate the contextual implications. Vehicles are equipped with AI systems in order to provide improved safety and convenience features, which are designed to work in conjunction with the automated driving capabilities of the existing cars.
The Automotivi Artificial Intelligence Market vendors are placed into 4 categories based on their performance and reviews in each criterion: “visionary leaders,” “innovators,” “dynamic differentiators,” and “emerging companies". Among all the Automotivi Artificial Intelligence Market vendors, the top 25 have been evaluated, including NVIDIA Inc. (US), Intel Corporation (US), Alphabet Inc. (US), IBM Corporation (US), and Baidu Inc. (China) and other players.
Visionary leaders are the leading market players in terms of new developments such as product launches, innovative technologies, and adoption of growth strategies. This quadrant receives high scores for the most evaluation criteria. They have a strong service portfolio, a robust market presence, and effective business strategies across the world. Visionary leaders primarily focus on acquiring the leading market position through their strong financial capabilities and well-established brand equity.
