Imagine you have a 4 metric ton pile of waste sitting on your front lawn. Your neighbors would probably hate it. The surrounding community wouldn’t appreciate it either, and it’s hard to tell your kids to go play in the yard with literal tons of waste hanging around.
It’s tough to imagine such a thing but the reality of waste hanging around is actually closer to reality than you might think. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the typical passenger vehicle emits around 4.6 metric tons of exhaust every year.

Domain consolidation has long been a concept just around the corner for the mobility industry. But we’re only now reaching a turning point that requires new thinking about what the E/E architecture of a vehicle should look like for the future. At the recent 2021 WCX Digital Summit, the Evolution of the Vehicle Architecture roundtable discussion explored the speed and scope at which these changes will happen. Here are some of the key takeaways.

Imagine all vehicles on the road — both old and new — linked through a high-speed, low-latency connection to a smart, powerful infrastructure. This vision of the future is radically changing the way we think about infrastructure and the role it plays in the collection, analysis and delivery of data to and from the vehicle.
During the recent 2021 WCX Digital Summit, industry thought leaders came together to explore this topic during the session “Is Data and the Connected Vehicle the Holy Grail or a Panacea?” Here are some of the highlights.

Enormous anticipation guided me as I entered the expansive Munchen Messe on Sept. 7, the inaugural media day and official kickoff for the first IAA – Germany’s combination auto show and industry trade fair – to be held in picturesque Munich. The Bavarian city is a far better show venue than drab, industrial Frankfurt, which hosted IAA since 1951.

As the development of vehicle electrification systems becomes more complex, there is a greater urgency to assess the impact that electric consumables have on internal combustion engine (ICE) and electric vehicle (EV) performance. “The Criticality of a Systems Approach to Today’s Propulsion Environment” roundtable talk at the 2021 WCX Digital Summit explored the challenges and tradeoffs. The panel included several notable executives familiar with the applications and management of electrification on battery and powertrain/propulsion systems. Here are some of the discussion highlights.
It’s no secret that the pandemic has turned the world of live events on its head (and then on its back, then on its head again.) But does that mean exhibiting is dead? Not necessarily. Live events are still a fruitful tactic for organizations looking to meet their business goals. When approached strategically, they generate leads, forge business relationships, exchange knowledge and chart a course to the future.
