THE WEEK THAT WAS - VW and GM back in the news

26 August 2016

Two of the world's largest automakers - Volkswagen and General Motors - have been in the news again this week, neither for entirely good reasons. Let's start with VW and its supplier row.


THE WEEK THAT WAS - The internet of what, now....?

18 March 2016

You gotta love the way buzzwords and jargon spread like a Californian wildfire around the auto industry.

January 2016, management briefing (Part 2)

26 January 2016

The second part of this month’s briefing reviews just some of the supplier autonomous driving innovations that caught our eye in the consumer electronics show (CES) and Detroit auto show this month. While they may not be household names, the likes of Autoliv, Bosch, Continental, Delphi, Denso, Magna, Valeo, Visteon and ZF TRW will heavily influence how your autonomous car will perform. Here, the tech talk is on sensor fusion (critical for self-driving cars), connectivity and vehicle-to-everything. In the meantime, semi-autonomous technologies are becoming more affordable thereby paving the way for mass-vehicle market growth.


THE WEEK THAT WAS: Volkswagen, diesel, recalls

2 October 2015

One guess what dominated just-auto's news, analysis and comment this week. VW, emissions, diesel and recalls, natch. Early in the week we asked: "Where will 'emissionsgate' end?" Well, for a start, some work with the slide rules by our own analysts swiftly concluded: "The expected decline of the popularity of diesel-fuelled vehicles in the European car market has been significantly accelerated."
