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.
