Disrupt, or be disrupted

Car travelling across bridge  The automotive industry is changing at an unprecedented rate.

Every engineer will see more change in the next five years than we have in the last 50 years.

Now, more than ever, we need to embrace our technical curiosity to find innovative, efficient solutions to problems we never imagined we would have to solve.

The UK has a legacy of innovation – with investment and skills we can move beyond innovation and become the world-leader in the application of new Autonomous, Connected, Electric and Shared (ACES) technologies:

  • How can we use autonomous technologies to remove fatigue and make travel more enjoyable?
  • With the use of higher levels of software than ever before, how can we enable a car to become a seamless, connected, intelligent ‘device’?
  • How can the UK become a world-leader in the development, design and manufacture of efficient, high-performing batteries? Is there still a place for internal combustion engines?
  • What more can we innovate in a shared economy for a car to truly make people’s lives better, not just take them from A-B?

Engineers and scientists have a once in a lifetime opportunity take on this challenge and pioneer the disruption in the new industrial revolution.
