Adapting to New Testing Needs and Standards in the Automotive Industry

Recent events such as China’s plans to scrap pure internal combustion engines as soon as 2030, the release of Tesla’s model 3, and announcements by several large automakers about ramping up EV production and possibly eliminating gasoline-powered vehicle production, have accelerated efforts to develop competitive electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid vehicles across the automotive industry i. But, even with falling purchase prices for many hybrids and plug-in EVs (PEVs), rising gasoline prices, and various government incentives for purchasing electrified vehicles, this change isn’t happening overnight.

Augmented Reality: A Real Use Case

By Bryan Rushton
April 17, 2018

Augmented Reality, and its cousin Virtual Reality, commonly referred to as A/R or AR and V/R or VR, have long held great intrigue by nearly everyone who is aware of their possibility. Virtual reality, the idea that we can immerse ourselves wholly in a digital and artificial rendering of the world, has been dreamt about for decades, and is ever closer permeating our everyday lives. Most have seen the advertisements that turn some smart phones into a VR headset. Extreme sports enthusiasts have probably seen commercially available 360-degree field of view cameras. This is quickly bringing millions their first samples of virtual reality and the power it has.
