It is no secret the pace of innovation in the automotive industry is exploding.

If the last 20 years have been linear in the development of electrification, the last two to three years have been exponential.

It used to be that a car was a means of getting from A to B.

Now, we can safely say that is not true for the vehicles of today and certainly not for the new vehicles of tomorrow.

Just about every new car on the market has a backup camera, park assist, and blind spot monitoring.

Some offer a 360-degree view.

Other features offer real-time traffic updates, cellular connection to potential hazards, other road users, vehicles, or pedestrians.

There are features that can detect if a driver is distracted or tired.

Meanwhile, the people in the car are often unaware of driving conditions, while they enjoy infotainment systems.

These features are delivered through a mixture of sensors, cameras, and networks.

As demands go up, next-generation advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) require camera and radar systems with increasingly high resolution.
