Automotive OEMs need to explore new approaches to differentiate themselves. One focus is on new features in the interior. New automotive-grade 3D time-of-flight cameras are now nearly as small as ToF cameras for smartphones, opening them up for in-car integration, where they promise a wide range of applications — from seamless access to private data and driver-monitoring systems to smart airbags — with a reasonable bill of materials.
In the past, driving performance was the main factor determining how well a car model sold. A powerful engine, sporty steering, and fuel consumption were the distinguishing characteristics that OEMs used to attract their customers. But times are changing.
