The STC’s Autonomous, Connected, Electrified & Shared (ACES) vehicles and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) special interest groups (SIGSs) continue to evolve following latest events held at Silverstone Park’s Metrology Facility.
During an open meeting, ACES champion Roger Atkins (EV Outlook) highlighted likely future changes in electric, autonomous and mobility technologies.
The CAE’s audience heard (via Skype) from Wirth Research’s Nick Trevorrow on whole system modelling in race tyre simulation, Cranfield University’s Dr John Erkoyuncu on the use of augmented reality as part of the product lifecycle management process and also guest speaker George Howard-Chapell of Multimatic on comparisons with Ford’s GT road and race car.
STC CEO Pim van Baarsen says: “Both SIGS are still in their formative stages but it’s clear from the reception and chatter at these latest events that each has huge enthusiasm from companies and individuals from across the Cluster.
“They are focusing on exactly the right areas and providing both great insight and thought leadership from figures who are right at the heart of industry and also a clear direction for our businesses.”
