Leddartech debuted the world's
first 3D solid state LiDAR integrated
circuit (IC) chip, dubbed the LCA2.
Priced at $100, it is expected to be
built into production vehicles beginning in 2020, says Charles Boulanger,
Leddartech's CEO. The LCA2 is
designed for rear-facing LiDARs.
Leddartech also displayed the LCA3
SOC, which is intended for front-facing LiDARs, and is priced at $150.
Samples of the LCA3 are expected to
be available to automakers and their
suppliers by the end of this year, and
it's expected to be built into production vehicles by 2021, Boulanger says.
Bosch presented its automated
valet parking concept, which lets drivers leave the car at a parking garage
entrance and command it, via
a smartphone app, to park itself in an
available space. This is predicated on
smart parking garage infrastructure
that communicates with the vehicle's
on-board software, Bosch says.
Bosch also announced CommunityBased Parking, an initiative in 20 U.S.
cities including Boston, Los Angeles
and Miami to enable vehicles
with cloud-connected vision to report
on the availability of parking spaces
as they drive past them, making
realtime parking information available to other drivers through their
vehicles' built-in navigation system
screens. Which vehicles - whether
they'll be privately-owned cars or
those belonging to the cities' fleets,

and which models from which automakers - remains to be determined,
says Kay Stepper, head of driver assistance and automated driving for
North America at Robert Bosch LLC,
based in Plymouth, MI. The majority
of these "model deployments" will
take place the beginning of the next
decade, but some will take place
sooner, Stepper says.

MORE OCCUPANTFRIENDLY INTERIORS

Bosch introduced its "next-generation
cockpit" boasting new ways for cars to
interact with the people inside a vehicle. The most significant of these is
a voice assistant similar to Apple's Siri
and Amazon's Alexa, which responds
to natural language queries but does
not need to be connected online to do
so, and can "think ahead," the company explains. For instance, using AI,
the Bosch voice assistant can anticipate that the driver will want to listen
to a news channel in the morning
when he asks to switch on the radio.
Further, unlike Siri or Alexa, the
assistant will respond to any name the
user assigns to it, although Bosch is
giving it the initial identity of a woman
named Casey. Besides the voice assistant, Bosch demonstrated digital
displays with haptics that make onscreen buttons feel like physical ones
and provide sensory feedback to
drivers while using controls. The idea
is to reduce driver distraction by
allowing functions to be controlled
by feel, without taking eyes off the
road ahead, the company says. Plus,
