Artificial intelligence in cars

In today's automotive industry, AI plays a crucial role in enhancing vehicle performance and safety. Through advanced AI algorithms, cars can learn from vast amounts of data to make smarter decisions on the road. Federated learning in edge computing emerges as a vital solution for processing this data directly in vehicles, enabling real-time responses without the need to transmit data off site.

The AI challenge

Common cases where data is out-of-reach in automotive AI projects.
Don't want to share
Sensitive data kept private to protect privacy, ensure confidentiality, prevent misuse, and guard against cybersecurity threats.
  • Vehicle usage patterns
  • Driver behavior analytics
  • Crash data
Cannot share
Data that cannot be shared due to ownership rights, confidentiality agreements, or practical issues in transferring data from connected vehicles.
  • Proprietary automotive technologies
  • Confidential design documents
  • Real-time telematics data
Not allowed to share
Information that is restricted from being shared due to legal, regulatory, or compliance reasons to ensure data privacy and security.
  • Personal driver information
  • Location data subject to privacy laws
  • Vehicle diagnostic data under regulations

Federated learning

Examples of how federated learning can enable or enhance AI in automotive.

Autonomous driving

In the development of autonomous vehicles, massive amounts of data are collected through onboard sensors and cameras.

AI challenge

Edge processing in vehicles presents significant hurdles, often due to poor connectivity and limited processing power or the sheer volume of data generated.

Federated learning

Federated learning can significantly improve the efficiency and safety of autonomous driving systems by:

  • Allowing AI models to learn from data generated across a fleet of vehicles, enhancing the system's overall intelligence and adaptability.
  • By processing data locally on each vehicle, federated learning reduces the need to transmit large volumes of potentially sensitive data.
  • Training models on diverse data from various environments and driving conditions, directly in the vehicle, helps address the issue of data diversity.

Federated learning provides a scalable approach to refine autonomous driving algorithms, making real-time decisions safer and more reliable by leveraging collective learning without compromising privacy.

Predictive maintenance

Using AI for predictive maintenance in vehicles enables early detection of potential failures, enhancing reliability and safety.

AI Challenge

Developing AI models for predictive maintenance in the automotive industry faces hurdles such as:

  • Fragmented and inaccessible data across various vehicle systems and models, connectivity issues, and large volumes of data.
Federated learning

Federated learning enhances predictive maintenance by:

  • Allowing models to learn from the vast and varied data generated by different vehicles, improving predictive accuracy.
  • Processing sensitive data locally within each vehicle, minimizing privacy risks.
  • Training on data from multiple vehicles and models helps overcome the challenges of limited data availability, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of vehicle health.

Personalization in vehicle systems

Machine learning personalizes in-vehicle experiences by customizing settings, entertainment, and monitoring driver state for enhanced safety and comfort.

AI Challenge

The development of personalized vehicle systems faces significant challenges such as:

  • Strict data privacy legislation that restricts the use and sharing of sensitive personal data.
  • Concerns over the handling and processing of sensitive information like driver behavior, preferences, and biometric data.
Federated learning

Federated learning addresses these challenges by:

  • Enabling ML models to learn from data generated across different vehicles while keeping this data localized, thereby adhering to data privacy regulations and mitigating sensitive data exposure risks.
  • Processing personal data on the vehicle itself, ensuring that individual preferences and sensitive information do not leave the vehicle, which enhances privacy and security.
