ARI'S SAFETY PATENTS CAN SAVE LIVES - NOW!
It is universally recognized in the automotive industry that profit is difficult to come by strictly from manufacturing vehicles. The margins are razor thin at best, and many vehicles are sold at very close to cost. So how can significant profit be achieved when it is essentially eliminated by selling only the ‘hardware’ vehicle on a one-off basis?
The Future: Software-Defined Vehicles
A HUGE profit opportunity - representing billions of bottom-line profit - presents itself from the sale of autonomous driving software/AI packages. For instance, a software/AI package can be embedded into the vehicle to be sold, and the excellent news for automotive manufacturers is that this software/AI package has a very substantial profit margin of thousands of dollars. Equally as lucrative - and quite likely even more so - is that gigantic ongoing profit opportunities come from periodic upgrades and quality enhancements to the original software/AI package. These packages can be sold at regular intervals, such as 2-4 years. This creates a repetitive, ongoing source of income long after the ‘hardware’ vehicle has been sold, and even many years later.
Consider all the versions of Microsoft operating systems that have been purchased by willing consumers over the years, each version more advanced than its predecessor. This business model of continuous periodic upgrades can readily be replicated in the automotive industry, creating enormous value for visionary automotive companies that wholeheartedly embrace the extremely profitable future for software-defined vehicles. And this bottom-line profit – estimated to be many tens of billions – is independent of the original sale of the ‘hardware’ vehicle.
The Autonomous Roadway Intelligence Patent portfolio enters into this equation by providing proprietary collision avoidance/harm minimization strategies which first and foremost are designed to save lives tragically wasted on roadways. With the accelerated implementation of hands-free driving features across multiple vehicle platforms, ARI’s lightning-fast autonomous decision making strategies can be employed to greatly reduce the number of accidents related to distracted or inattentive drivers.
Vitally important and especially critical to the general driving public - which includes you and me and our families – we anticipate that many thousands of lives can be saved EVERY YEAR by the commercial implementation of the ARI Patent portfolio.
We at Autonomous Roadway Intelligence have our hats off in recognition of the numerous safety features being constantly incorporated in vehicles by serious automotive manufacturers and software companies. And we look very much forward to the privilege of working collaboratively with safety-focused automotive professionals – TO SAVE LIVES!
ARI's Patents combine COLLISION AVOIDANCE and HARM MINIMIZATION.
