Electric vehicles are only a small part of the future mobility trend. The future trend is not only electric vehicles, but also generates hidden business opportunities, and the opportunities are endless.
Market trends in Transportation Technology:
The transportation revolution of future mobility is an all-encompassing macro trend that combines unmanned driving, the Internet of Vehicles, new energy vehicles, shared vehicles, etc.
Trend 1: Electric Vehicles
The astonishing rise of Tesla's share price in recent years has undoubtedly attracted a lot of attention to the electric vehicle industry, as well as the enthusiasm of many investors to study it, and it has become the most popular industry discussed on the Internet. Many traditional car manufacturers have also stepped into the field of electric vehicles and launched their brands of electric vehicles. With advantages that Tesla does not have, such as several automotive patents, access, brand trust, and safety accumulated through years of work in the automotive market. Even at the beginning, the car charging station was insufficient, and the development of gasoline-electric hybrid was given priority to catch up with the trend of the rapid explosion of cars in the future.
Trend 2: Smart City Grid
A few days ago, there have been many unwarned power outages in Taiwan, highlighting the problem of stable power distribution scheduling. How to more efficiently integrate the changes in demand at different times in different units such as households and enterprises is becoming more and more important. For example, when there is excess electricity production, supplying equipment or electricity storage facilities that need a lot of charging can provide charging for electric vehicles, and then appropriately deploy when electricity is lacking. In this way, not only the general public can enjoy lower-cost electricity, but also contribute to sustainable development.
Trend 3: Charging Devices and Battery Technology
To achieve the goals of sustainable development, energy saving, and carbon reduction, the world is pursuing the replacement of fuel vehicles with electric vehicles, and the battery industry and charging equipment are important for the popularization of electric vehicles. What developing batteries and charging equipment that can charge faster and have higher storage capacity, as well as reduce the cost of batteries, can further accelerate the popularization of electric vehicles.
Trend 4: Big Data
Big data plays an important role in many fields. Whether it is the digital transformation or industrial upgrading, it has a pivotal impact. In the future, if human transportation is to improve, it must also rely on big data. The future car is not only a mobile tool but also a data center equipped with four wheels. Just like the mobile phone in everyone's hands, it is a carrier that carries all kinds of data and contains unlimited data waiting to be mined.
Trend 5: Internet of Vehicles
The Internet of Vehicles is the application of the Internet of Things in transportation. The electronic tags mounted on the vehicles can be used to extract and effectively use the attribute information and static and dynamic information of all vehicles on the information network platform through identification technologies such as radio frequency. And it can effectively supervise the running status of all vehicles and provide comprehensive services according to different functional requirements.
Trend 6: Unmanned Driving
Imagine that as soon as you get in the car in the future, you don't need a driver or drive yourself. Just take out your mobile phone to play, and you can wait to reach your destination. Unmanned driving is the focus of future mobility and many teams focus on research and development. Unmanned driving also redefines the automotive industry and brings 100M business opportunities. Not only electric vehicle manufacturers have invested in research, but traditional vehicle manufacturers are also rushing to enter this field. In addition to software, it also drives the demand for sensors that are used in vehicles to receive external information, such as automotive cameras and radars, which are growing every year.
Trend 7: AI Artificial Intelligence
Nowadays, many technological applications rely on AI artificial intelligence, which is almost ubiquitous in life and is also an indispensable boost for future mobile development. Through the test of AI self-driving vehicles, the application of related technologies in the development of the automotive industry will be increased. There is still considerable room to look forward to the potential of artificial intelligence in autonomous driving in the future.
Trend 8: Future Cars
It can be said that the future car is a collection of future mobile technology. It not only covers the scope of electric vehicles but also the flying car that soared in the sky in science fiction movies in the past. Now it is also conceived and realized by automobile manufacturers.
Trend 9: Shared Cars
In recent years, the sharing economy has prevailed, and the sharing economy will also be a very important part of the future of mobile. The car-sharing related services are still developing rapidly, and the number of people using them is increasing. It can effectively increase the low utilization rate of private cars and reduce the number of vehicles per unit. Idle time, to achieve a win-win situation of energy saving, carbon reduction, and increased efficiency.
Trend 10: Unmanned Transportation Logistics
The future of contactless services is not just a slogan. The technology applied to self-driving cars can also be applied to unmanned transportation and logistics. In 2023, the demand for e-commerce delivery will increase the number of logistics vehicles by 36%. The epidemic will accelerate the development of related contactless delivery technologies. We believe that the use of drones to deliver food and packages can be seen everywhere in the future.
