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 - Facetime with Ford's Fields

15 January 2016

We scored a rare treat this week while attending the Detroit show and associated events in what I am told was a "really cold" Michigan this week. I guess I fluked my one visit to Motown's big do several years ago when I enjoyed crystal clear skies and temperatures mild enough to sit outside and enjoy the sun while waving to the residents of Windsor across the river and discovering it is possible for Canada to be south of the US. In places.


THE WEEK THAT WAS: Bank holiday and election fever

8 May 2015

A short week for us due to the first (of two) bank holidays has ended in a surprise majority win for the Conservatives overnight (along with the virtual elimination of Labour from parliamentary seats in Scotland) and we look forward to one party rather than (compromised) coalition rule for the UK. I doubt the autobiz has any problem with that.
