In the past, designing a vehicle required addressing issues such as speed, handling, safety, and efficiency, among others. 

While this is complicated, it is much easier compared to what it’ll take to build autonomous vehicles.

Not only do you have to take care of all the vehicle design challenges, but you also have to design its ecosystem. You must consider how it will connect with the infrastructure, its users, and the controller. Effectively combining all of these needs requires the collaboration of engineers from different disciplines. 

In this episode, the second part of two, Ed Bernardon interviews Felix Andlauer, VP of Mobility Solutions at NEVS – a Swedish electric and autonomous vehicle (AV) manufacturer founded in 2012 with the vision of shaping mobility for a sustainable future. He’ll help us understand what it’ll take to adopt AVs fully.
