In our Q3 Impact Report, we explore next-generation sequencing and explain how two portfolio holdings in this field are generating positive impacts that support the delivery of the third United Nations Sustainable Development Goal – Good Health and Well-Being.
Sensing the future: how Valeo drives intelligent mobility
The global market for automotive sensors is worth more than $26bn – and that figure is expected to jump to $43bn by 2021. In the second instalment of our three-part series on future mobility, we explore how intelligent vehicles can improve safety, increase efficiency and cut emissions. Modern cars are already getting smarter: they can detect and respond to hazardous situations, such as another vehicle slowing suddenly ahead or a pedestrian about to cross the road, by using sensor technology.
Sensors are increasingly being used in vehicles as the automotive industry attempts to meet evolving efficiency standards and environmental regulations. Today, vehicles have an average of between 60-100 sensors on board – and recent industry figures suggest that this number is likely to grow to as much as 200, based on current trends.
Sensor technology will therefore play an integral role in modernising transportation.
