The Future of Mobility
Services for CASE Technologies
The automotive industry changed the world in the early 20th century, and over the past 100 years, it has constantly evolved to meet consumer demands. Today, the industry is doing more than innovating. It is experiencing a seismic transformation driven by technological advances and social changes. This transformation is fueled by four trends: autonomous driving, connectivity, electrification, and shared mobility. Known as CASE (connected, autonomous, shared, and electric), these four areas of technological innovation are shaping the vehicles of the future. On their own, each of these trends has the potential for disruption, but their convergence is creating a true revolution in mobility.
What is Driving CASE Mobility?
The future of mobility seeks to replace the congestion, pollution, and unsafe roadways of today’s automotive landscape with safer, more sustainable transportation solutions.
This is spurred by new automotive connectivity technologies, improved machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities, and shifting attitudes and priorities toward technology and sustainability.
- By 2035, nearly 70% of new vehicles sold in the United States will be full hybrid or zero emission. The electrification of America’s roadways means lower emissions and a decreased reliance on fossil fuels.
- New vehicles are expected to be increasingly connected, creating more than 2 TB of data per day by 2030 from cameras, LIDAR, RADAR, and more.
- Nearly 10% of new vehicles sold in 2035 will feature Level 4 automation. This is a high level of driving automation in which vehicles can perform all driving tasks.
These changes will have far-reaching impact across the transportation ecosystem. They will also fundamentally alter established industries, such as insurance, manufacturing, and energy and utilities.
The changes will also redefine vehicle safety by adding new areas and expanding others. Cybersecurity is required to secure the data created and transmitted by vehicles. Functional safety keeps the vehicle and its systems operating properly. Product testing and homologation ensure that each component in the vehicle functions properly and works together as a whole. Process safety helps ensure that electric vehicles and batteries are stored safely and securely.
At DEKRA, we do not view CASE as a disruption but as an opportunity to keep drivers and passengers of the future safe in new ways. We make connected cars more secure. We certify autonomous driving technology. And we develop new EV standards.
