Uncovering Damon’s safer and smarter electric motorcycle with Jay Giraud - Part 1

5/18/2022
Riding a motorcycle is exhilarating! If you are not used to it, you get to experience fear, pleasure, and freedom, all at once. At high speeds; you get to feel the wind hitting you, hear the sound coming from the engine, and on sharp corners, see yourself defying gravity. However, a majority of people riding motorcycles don’t get to use them because they enjoy the experience. They do it because it's the only means of transport that’s available to them. One of the biggest challenges that...

Shift founder Toby Russell on the digital transformation of used car sales - Part 2

5/4/2022
In a startup, absolutely nothing happens unless you make it happen. That is what makes managing a startup an uphill task. It requires a strong culture and a leadership team that knows what to prioritize. That’s because as the company grows in size and revenue its priorities also evolve. For instance, to create a superior product and remain competitive, there is a need to hire more specialists to replace the generalist talent. These challenges aren’t specific to companies that are building...

Shift founder Toby Russell on the digital transformation of used car sales - Part 1

4/20/2022
For most people buying a used car is an unpleasant experience that they only go through because they have to. All the haggling and sometimes ‘clever’ misrepresentation of the vehicle’s value add up to create a bad experience. And buying a new car isn’t a great experience either, especially when you consider the drastic depreciation right after driving off the parking lot. None of the two happens because it’s impossible to get value for money when buying a car. It happens because the murky...

Zoox’s Journey to Safety with Mark R. Rosekind - Part 2

4/6/2022
“Safety isn’t expensive, it's priceless.” In the Autonomous Vehicles field, safety is at the front, back and center. In fact, all the other features that are included only make sense if a vehicle is proven to be safe. That’s why AV companies are investing heavily in proving that their vehicles are safe. The fact that they have to meet higher safety standards has made them rethink their approach to it. Almost all of them have added new safety features as well as upgraded the existing ones...

Zoox's Journey to Safety with Mark R. Rosekind - Part 1

3/23/2022
With autonomous vehicles, the goal is to get to a point when they can give us a “boring” or uneventful ride. And you may be thinking, “Well, that’s not exciting at all!” But, it’s safe and trustworthy enough for you as a rider to shift your focus from the fact that there is no driver. After all, it’s only after you feel safe that you can fully relax and enjoy the ride as well as all the amenities that come with the vehicle. AV companies are tackling this challenge head-on by borrowing...

Verification and Validation of Autonomous Vehicles

3/11/2022
Level 5 of autonomy in vehicles used on public roads will only be possible after the manufacturers prove their vehicles are safe enough. The fact that they have to meet standards that are being developed as they also develop their vehicles makes it a very challenging task. That’s why the stakeholders in the transportation industry will have to work together to make AVs a reality. However, many OEMs are already manufacturing vehicles enabled with levels 2 and 3 of autonomy as they continue...

Sustainable EV Global Circumnavigation with Ben Scott-Geddes, Fering Technologies - Part 2

3/9/2022
What capabilities would a vehicle that can successfully circumnavigate the globe need to possess? It would need to function in extreme heat, freezing temperatures, rugged terrain, and smooth highways. This is exactly what the Pioneer truck has been designed and is being built to accomplish. On top of all that, it will also be a hybrid truck that is eco-friendly. The primary market for this truck will be adventurers, rainforest protection agencies, antarctic explorers, and vaccine...

Sustainable EV Global Circumnavigation with Ben Scott-Geddes, Fering Technologies

2/23/2022
Today, most car manufacturers are focused on coming up with vehicles that are electric and autonomous. However, these cars are only designed to work in places that have developed infrastructure to support them. One company is seeking to remove this limitation by developing a truck that can circumnavigate the globe. A vehicle that would give great performances in hot deserts, as well as in the North and South Pole. On top of all that, it's a hybrid car. This will push sustainability goals...

Autonomous Vehicles: The Shift Towards a Software and Electronics Based Process

2/11/2022
Autonomous vehicles have taken longer to develop than expected. Not long ago, electric vehicles and autonomous were ideas that were only seriously touted and pursued by ambitious startups. Traditional OEMs were comfortable with their established market share that only required a few reasonable upgrades a year. But, that’s all in the past! Today, all major OEMs have plans that will see them go fully electric in the coming decades. To achieve this audacious goal, they have to completely...

Uncovering the Concept of Connected Vehicles with Marcus Welz, Hyundai - Part 2

2/9/2022
Imagine having a car that knows you so well it can make recommendations on where to eat. If permitted, it would collect data on your driving patterns, share that data with an insurance company, and help get you a better insurance deal. Such a car will go beyond being a machine you own, to being a device connected to your phone, your home, your accounts, among others. These are some of the features that connected cars will bring to life once they hit the market in the future. And that...

Vehicle Electrification: The Evolution of Vehicles Electrical and Electronic (EE) Systems

2/4/2022
One of the biggest challenges that car manufacturers can’t escape is the changing consumer demands. For instance, most consumers are now very keen on the experience they have in the car - they no longer see it as just a utility that moves you from point A to point B. Many companies have seen this as an opportunity to deliver more customized products to the market with the goal of meeting diverse consumer needs. To accommodate the shift from plain standardized cars, EV manufactures have had...

Imagine being in a car that allows you to subscribe to the features you want instead of visiting a dealership to get them. On top of that, you would also be able to get system updates, sync with your cloud playlists, weather updates, assisted driving, among others. Well, that’s what car manufacturers are seeking to do as they push to create connected vehicles. They are essentially turning cars into computers that we can drive and get a far better user experience. It's all understandable...

You are not stuck in traffic, you are traffic! Isn’t it funny how most of the time we’ll feel like victims and not accomplices whenever we get stuck in traffic? If you live in some of the big cities, the only concern bigger than safety is a traffic jam. It makes you feel like you are wasting away. Sometimes you’ll even be thinking that the people in charge are actively trying to stop you from getting home faster. Could shared transport and multiple options of transport modes be the...
