Innovation in the automotive sector

Technology in cars is constantly evolving. And a huge part of this is digital technology. These days, mechanical design is only 20% to 30% of the design work: the remainder is systems and software. This has implications for the design skills required. But it also means that the development cycle is altered: for instance road testing can be in part automated, meaning that it can be quicker to get new models to market.
The key theme this breakfast will explore is how digitalisation can give the automotive industry the opportunity to do so much more. If they can navigate the complexity that comes with it then they have more flexibility with design, more simulation & testing can be done with less resource.

During the meeting we will focus on strategic questions such as:

- How is digitalisation helping to create smarter, safer and greener vehicles?
- How will changes in manufacturing, mechanical engineering and materials science change the way that cars are developed?
- How will testing and compliance requirements change as new technologies become the norm?
- With data increasingly being captured as cars are driven, where are the new revenue opportunities?
- How will cars keep up with constantly evolving technology?
- What does today’s customer want from their vehicle, and how different will tomorrow’s customer needs be?

Who is invited?

Top management (CIO, CTO, COO, CEO and their direct reports) at organisations across the automotive sector: manufacturers and assemblers, parts manufacturers, automotive and engineering consultancies, design companies, software companies.
