Special Industry Focus: Designing for Automotive

Read about the latest developments in automotive design and engineering.

The automotive industry is experiencing seismic shifts in fluctuating demand, new use cases (such as ride sharing and vehicles-as-a-service), along with pressure to reduce weight and improve environmental performance.

At the same time, auto makers are attempting to shift to more hybrid and electric drivetrain technology, while also incorporating safe, autonomous vehicle features. All of these trends are impacting how vehicles are designed, and what materials and techniques are employed in their manufacture.

In this Special Focus Issue, our writers take a look at 3D printing in the automotive industry, new trends in vehicle simulation, and case studies on the deployment of new technologies in the vehicle design and manufacture space.
