The race to build fully autonomous cars has gone into hyperdrive, with major carmakers such as GM, Daimler, BMW and Audi promising SAE Level 5 autonomous driving by sometime in 2021. Goldman Sachs predicts that robo taxis will grow the ride-hailing and sharing business from $5 billion in revenue today to $285 billion by 2030. […]

Leveraging blockchain features for access restriction in our 3D printing proof-of-concept

When we last talked about our 3D printing procurement system proof-of-concept, we promised to report back on how we are using blockchain features for access restriction. Prior to implementing blockchain features, we handled access restriction to the 3D model files (STL/G-code) using folder access and Enterprise GitHub. This worked fine if the 3D printing was […]

Digital product lifecycle management (PLM) drives innovation in the auto industry

In the automotive industry, the challenges of designing, building, selling and updating a product has become more about software than steel, and all roads lead to digital-driven product lifecycle management (PLM). Perhaps no industry is undergoing more transformation than the automotive industry, with customers demanding personalization, connectivity, self-driving features and entertainment centers. In response, carmakers […]

What’s next for automotive? CTO insights from the AutomotiveIT Congress

Top decision-makers from the automotive industry gathered in Germany at the 10th AutomotiveIT Congress to network and share experiences, and to glean fresh insights about the IT challenges and opportunities they’re facing as they navigate their organizations’ digital transformations. DXC’s Automotive Center of Excellence was featured at the conference, held March 22 in Berlin. In […]

How artificial intelligence changes manufacturing jobs

Artificial intelligence (AI) will certainly impact manufacturing jobs. Rather than making people obsolete, I believe that AI will make many manufacturing jobs more meaningful. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that while 64% of manufacturing work has the potential to be automated, only about 5% of all occupations consist of activities that are fully automatable. This implies that, in […]

Adding visual search to our 3D printing proof-of-concept

Being able to search using images, not text, is very powerful when you’re searching for a specific part or product. If your text search does not exactly match the keywords or tags, you won’t find what you’re looking for. That’s where visual search can help. Take the example of a vintage car owner who needs […]

3 domande da porre sullo sviluppo di software agile nel settore automobilistico

La trasformazione digitale dell’industria automobilistica è stata incredibilmente radicale, sia sulla strada, con nuove auto piene di gadget tecnologici, sia in fabbrica, dove l’Internet of Things, la robotica e l’intelligenza artificiale hanno reso più efficiente il modo in cui vengono prodotte le automobili. Ma ancora più importante di questi cambi ovvi, è il fatto che […]

3 cuestiones en torno al desarrollo de software ágil en el sector de automoción

La transformación digital de la industria de automoción ha sido increíblemente dramática, tanto en la carretera por dotar a los coches de los últimos accesorios tecnológicos, como en las fábricas, donde el Internet de las Cosas, la robótica y la inteligencia artificial han añadido claras eficiencias de producción. Aparte de los desarrollos más obvios, las […]

Automobile : 3 questions qu’il faut se poser sur le développement de logiciels agiles

La transformation digitale du secteur automobile est spectaculaire, dans ses deux facettes. Sur la route, d’une part, avec de nouveaux modèles équipés d’accessoires technologiques. Dans les usines, d’autre part, où l’Internet des objets, la robotique et l’intelligence artificielle ne cessent d’améliorer la production des véhicules. Les tendances de consommation évoluent également : les conducteurs sont à la […]

How artificial intelligence and analytics will evolve autonomous driving and next-generation cars

Building autonomous cars takes more data than automotive research engineers ever imagined possible. To put some numbers around the autonomous driving issue, some current estimates predict that it will take around 23 to 25 million kilometers of driving to collect data and train the neural networks that will make autonomous cars feasible. Evolving autonomous driving […]
