IEEE-DAY: "The Automotive Technological Revolution and the Future of Personal Mobility"; GBS VTS WEEK, WEBINAR #3 of 3

Share

In an ever-growing populous world, the automotive industry is faced with

opportunities and challenges, which have been driving fundamental and revolutionary changes to

 the automotive DNA. In the coming years, advances in vehicle electrification, connectivity, and

autonomous driving capability will combine to make our cars and trucks much different and much

safer than those on the road today. Extensive automotive research, conducted over the past

10-15 years, has paved the way for the commercial introduction of these capabilities. With these

new technologies, in addition to a substantial enhancement in fuel economy, the industry will

experience a dramatic leap in active safety systems and hopefully a dramatic decline in injuries

and fatalities on our roadways.
