Electric Vehicle Manufacturers Need Engineers with AI and Robotics Skills

by Kathy Pretz

Just about every car manufacturer—including BMWFordGeneral MotorsJaguar, and Toyota—has announced plans to build more electric vehicles and phase out cars with internal combustion engines. As of early 2018, automakers in Germany had invested US $52 billion in EVs, Chinese car companies $21 billion, and those in the United States at least $19 billion, according to Reuters. BloombergNEF’s 2019 Electric Vehicle Outlook predicts that EVs will make up 57 percent of passenger car sales globally by 2040.

Internet of Things Technology Will Connect Highways, Street Lights, and Vehicles

by Kathy Pretz

As more and more intelligent cars and autonomous vehicles hit the road, some engineers are thinking about what can be done to smarten up the streets on which they travel.

Doing so could allow smart cars and trucks to exchange information with other vehicles, traffic management centers, and private companies about traffic congestion, accidents, and weather conditions. The key to making it happen is an Internet of Things system that includes sensors embedded in the roadway and on traffic lights.

Harrison Russell 14Electric Vehicles:  Can Legislation Keep up with Technology?
Presented by Russell Harrison
Thursday, January 9, 2020, 11:00 am EDT

Abstract: Are electric vehicles an emerging technology, or a mature technology?  Policymakers can't decide.  Some legislators believe electric vehicles are a mature product, ready to sink or swim in the free market.  To others, the technology is still in its infancy and requires government assistance to survive.   Join IEEE-USA's Director of Government Relations, Russell Harrison, for a discussion on the state of this debate, and how it could play out in Washington and in statehouses across the country.   Read more.
