Dublin, Oct. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The "Automotive Infrared Night Vision System Research Report, 2021" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
This report combs through development trends and market size of automotive infrared night vision, technology routes of main Chinese and foreign night vision system suppliers, and night vision system application of OEMs.
The statistics show that China saw nearly 200,000 traffic accidents happen every year in recent years, 60% of which took place at night and caused 50% of death toll.
In 2021H1, the sales of passenger cars equipped with night vision systems surged.
From the sales of passenger cars packing night vision systems in China, it can be seen that despite an annualized plunge of 32.0% during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the automobile industry has resumed production in China's efforts to control the outbreak, selling 3,655 cars with night vision systems in the first half of 2021 alone, a like-on-like spurt of 231.4%. Wherein, Cadillac, Audi and Volkswagen models were the key contributors to the soaring sales of night vision systems in this period.
In current stage, night vision systems still tend to be mounted on high-class models. Through the lens of the sales of passenger cars packing night vision systems in recent two years, those priced above RMB300,000 swept over 85% of the sales, of which the higher than RMB500,000 cars occupied over 60% share. Meanwhile, cars with prices ranging from RMB250,000 to RMB300,000 carried night vision systems as well, sharing 10.3% of the sales in 2020.
The declining cost of infrared detectors and the improving policies make automotive infrared night vision a promising market.
In the past, high price was an enduring constraint on wide adoption of automotive infrared night vision systems. The technology advances have driven down the cost fast:
The maturing wafer-level and 3D packaging helps to lower the cost of detectors, a key component of infrared night vision system.
The homemade infrared sensors break the foreign monopoly, having a considerable cost advantage.
Smaller pixel size drags down the cost of both infrared detector and system integration. Raytron Technology already develops the world's first large area array uncooled infrared detector with pixel spacing of 8?m and area array size of 1920 1080, meeting the needs of high-end products that require high resolution and light weight.
Infrared imaging technology finds ever wider application in autonomous driving.
The application of infrared imaging technology in autonomous driving has become more widespread over the past years, for example:
In December 2020, Zoox introduced its first autonomous battery electric vehicle equipped with the thermal imaging camera provided by Teledyne FLIR. This device can accurately recognize and classify objects in urban streets around the clock.
In March 2021, Apple was granted a patent for the night vision system that combines visible light, near-infrared (NIR), and long-wave infrared (LWIR) sensors. The system is applicable to autonomous vehicles.
On the first day of the Auto Shanghai 2021, Didi Autonomous Driving and Volvo jointly launched "DiDi Gemini", a new-generation L4 autonomous test vehicle which packs a total of 50 sensors including 1 infrared camera.
In May 2021, ADASTEC integrated two Teledyne FLIR thermal imagers into its flowride.ai automation platform, with the primary focus on improving detection and safety of all vulnerable road users on or near the road and at bus stops.
