Innovations in the automotive industry are, at first glance, reminiscent of a futuristic Hollywood movie: Cars that can think autonomously — and that are designed to become better and “smarter” the more they are used — will hit the roads and drive themselves.
What’s the best way to predict future technological advances? By creating it. That is precisely what AKKA Technologies, an international engineering and technology consulting group, did when it designed the Link & Go, its dual-mode, connected electric car.
Design for sustainability is a key consideration for producing the optimal product. Engineers often use sophisticated simulation tools to assess all aspects of sustainability, such as weight, performance efficiency and waste reduction.
There are several broad industry product development and IT trends impacting the landscape for PLM implementations. The trend to deliver more and more of the core product development activities through virtual simulation over physical testing processes has continued to accelerate over the last decad
One of the primary roles of education is to prepare students to join the workforce after graduation. Many engineering programs teach their students a great deal about theory and how to do calculations by hand, but this sometimes creates a knowledge and software gap. We recently spoke with Nathan Shi
