Intelligent Driving Market and Smart Infrastructure Industry 2014 Global Research Reports

DALLAS, September 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- adds "Global Intelligent Driving Industry Report, 2014" and "Global Smart Infrastructure - Smart Grids and M2M are Key Developments" research reports to its store. The annual report on the global development of Smart Grids and M2M incorporates key insights, statistics, examples and trends. Whereas the intelligent driving market report says that driver assistance technologies all over the world have ushered in massive configuration of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), which is also one of the most-demanding automotive sectors in recent years, expected to see a CAGR of 20% over 2013-2017.

Global Smart Infrastructure - Smart Grids and M2M are Key Developments 2014 market research report provides insights into the importance of Smart Grids to meet the growing demands of the future and explores why they are intrinsically linked to M2M developments. It examines the growing movement towards an overall Smart Energy approach, using insights from Australia as examples. The report also provides interesting examples of smart grid and smart meter deployments from around the world. Subjects covered in this research include data and information on:    Global Smart Grid and Smart Meter Trends and Statistics;  Smart Grids and Consumers Insights; M2M, IoT, Big Data Trends and Statistics; Smart Energy Insights; Selected Smart Grid and Smart Meter project examples from around the world.

Global Intelligent Driving Industry Report, 2014 says the combined utilization of multiple ADASs can achieve a higher automation and make driving smarter. As a general rule, the more ADAS systems a car carries, the more intelligent it is. On the whole, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi and Nissan lead the way in ADAS configuration, with more functions, higher automation and supporting ratio. Vehicle makers prefer to apply ADAS systems to new, top-selling and new energy models. Volvo will sell the first with highly-automated driver assistance system - XC90 at the end of 2014, followed by other leading vehicle makers from 2015. It is expected that mass-produced highly-automated cars will appear around the year 2020, and large-scale commercially-applied fully-automated ones around 2030. Companies discussed in this research include Volkswagen Group, BMW, Daimler AG, Volvo, GM, Ford, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mercedes-Benz, Google, Mobileye Vision Technologies and Baidu.

The executive summary of Global Smart Infrastructure - Smart Grids and M2M are Key Developments 2014 market research report says smart grids are part of a larger move towards smart energy development. The transformation to a Smart Grid not only delivers benefits to the electricity industry but also to the community and to individual business and residential customers. Real-time visibility of the grid enables better balancing of supply and demand and greater efficiency of network operations - which allows the investment in the energy supply chain to be optimized.

Smart Grids can provide visibility and control of energy usage to a level not previously possible. This allows all involved from customers to network operators to participate in programs that encourage reduced electricity use during periods of high demand. Further, Smart Grid technologies are important for managing and supporting increased penetration of renewable energy, such as photovoltaic (PV) panels on the roofs of our buildings. Electricity networks were traditionally designed to distribute energy in one direction - from large central generation sources to the consumer.

As we move into an era where everybody is able to participate in electricity generation, the electricity network becomes a multidirectional "any-to-any" grid, interconnecting power distribution across all parts of the network. This is also known as Transactive Energy.

The electricity grid is becoming the enabler in all these changes, and by making it an intelligent grid and adding telecoms to it, the power will shift away from the electricity companies to the customers. The appliances that will be developed will assist this process; some of that on a M2M basis using networked sensors and SCaDa technology. Another term being used for these broader developments is the Internet of Things (IoT).

Smart Grids encompass a broad portfolio of technologies, and different power companies will choose to deploy those elements that promise the best return on investment. What is important is that the world embraces a culture of modernising its electricity networks so it can meet the needs and expectations of future generations.

With a better understanding of the complexity involved in the transformation of the electricity industry the words 'smart energy' are becoming more prominent. This research believes that the term 'smart grids' is too narrow and that eventually 'smart energy' will become the accepted terminology, especially once the communications developments in national broadband networks and mobile broadband start to converge with smart grid developments.

This new report, Global Smart Infrastructure - Smart Grids and M2M are Key Developments, provides important insights into why smart communities of the future require smart grid infrastructure to meet growing demand and supply the platform for smart energy developments. The report explores how the Internet of Things, based on machine-to-machine (M2M) and sensor developments are intrinsically linked to Smart Grids. This unique report also provides interesting examples of smart grid and smart meter projects from around the world and includes an overview of the global market, supported by statistics.
