Body electronics is an electronic system integrated in the vehicle that performs definite functions. Modern vehicles contain a varied range of systems that carry out control functions, instrument diagnostics and security features, and manage power. Components of automotive body electronics include sensors and sensor interface, power switching and monitoring circuits, and communication ICs. Voltage regulators and DC-DC converters are also part of automotive body electronics, which helps regulate the voltage applied for the electronic system and DC-DC converters are employed to step up and step down the voltage in the electronic system of the vehicles. It consists of more than one processing units, programmable input/output peripherals, and memory. Components of the body electronics are utilized in automatically-operable products and devices. Body electronics has a widespread range of usage in vehicles such as speed checker, parking sensor, coolant temperature sensor, and GPS-based vehicle tracking system. Furthermore, sensors are utilized in the automobile engine control system, power windows/doors, and anti-lock braking system.
Vehicle production is increasing owing to the rising demand for comfort, rise in penetration and demand for ADAS equipped vehicles, government norms regarding pollution & steps taken to implement electric vehicles, and increase in demand for vehicle comfort. A start-stop system in the vehicle which automatically shuts down and restarts the IC engine and reduces fuel consumption and emissions is increasing rapidly These are some factors that are driving the automotive body electronics market. This can be attributed to the rise in demand for cars having advanced technological functions. Automotive manufacturers are increasing the production of such vehicles in order to cater to the rising demand from consumers. The automobile sector is witnessing innovation owing to the rise in price of fuel and environmental concerns.
