The Next Billion Cars – How Close Are We To Self-Driving?

  Last year, approximately 70.5 million cars were manufactured worldwide. When you break down that massive number, it equates to two cars per second! Keeping that same pace, it will reportedly take 15 years to manufacture the next billion vehicles, according to futurist Mark Pesce, an author, inventor, entrepreneur, and host of “The Next Billion […]

Simulation of the Future: Autonomous Vehicles

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International) defines five levels of vehicle autonomy, and a good deal of work is already being done in the lower levels, which include Level 1 (automation with driver assistance), Level 2 (partial driving automation) and Level 3 (conditional driving automation). Higher levels of autonomy include Level 4, which is […]

In this ever-changing environment it is increasingly necessary for companies to adapt to stay ahead of competitors. Cloud-based product innovation platforms are becoming the new standard in the digital sector, offering businesses the tools they need to […]

Advanced Hypersonic Research Will Rely on a Multidisciplinary Collaboration

Attend almost any aerospace conference that includes a strategic assessment of the nation’s highest-priority technologies and capabilities to maintain global competitiveness and strong national security, and hypersonics will be at or near the top of the list. Hypersonics broadly describes speeds at which an air vehicle flies at Mach 5 or faster—five times the speed […]

Vehicle Megatrends: Driving the Future and Steering Roadblocks

It’s no longer your great-grandfather’s or even grandfather’s auto industry. Future automobiles are expected to be assisted, automated, and autonomous while utilizing a wide range of technology. Sweeping changes are taking place on a daily basis related to who is building our vehicles, how they are powered, and who owns and drives them, said Deirdre Mayhood, […]

Digital Manufacturing Has Its Head in the Cloud

Digital manufacturing is executed on the ground, but increasingly, the thinking is being done in the cloud. What happens on the factory floor doesn’t stay there, but is uploaded as data to the cloud for validation, visibility, and analytic crunching to find patterns, make predictions, and prescribe actions. The cloud was a simpleton years ago—a […]

What’s the Difference Between a Forecast and a Demand Plan?

What’s the difference between a forecast and a demand plan? A forecast is a prediction of demand based on a mathematical and statistical analysis of past demand. This mathematical forecast can and should be adjusted to reflect any knowledge or intelligence that the forecaster knows, that may affect future demand, but is not reflected in […]
