At Reuters’ Automotive Europe 2023 event, there were a couple of big strategic innovation areas under discussion – both of which need IT alignment to execute. I don’t think you’ll be surprised that they were on carbon-neutral vehicles and ADAS/autonomous driving.
Therefore, I wanted to look at each of those areas in this issue of Cloud Core Automotive…so keep scrolling!
🌱Carbon-neutral vehicle design
Fundamentally, the challenges associated with designing and manufacturing carbon-neutral vehicles come down to data. Because you must be able to:
- Leverage vast amounts of data related to carbon footprint, resource consumption, quality, maintenance requirements, supply chain and more
- Do it correctly and at speed
🚗 ADAS and autonomous driving
ADAS/autonomous driving roadmaps involving being able to train billions of data sets in a reusable format.
Which means that, to progress to Level 4, the #1 requirement is having a data foundation that can handle the high-volume, high-velocity data. This involves:
- Data landing zones
- Standardised infrastructure as code
- Training systems and data flows that enable you to scale up
I’ve been pointing people to this whitepaper on data platforms as a good starting place 👇
😎 Funny compliments
Sometimes, something unexpected turns out to be the biggest compliment you could receive.
“You accompany us on our cloud journey in an agile and unbureaucratic way.” ➡️ When people are used to complex communication and stakeholder management (like at this automotive company), “unbureaucratic” is a huge change for the better.
“Working with Nordcloud is the best anti-climax I’ve ever had.” ➡️ Based on past experiences, a manufacturer was braced for all sorts of drama with their cloud project, but it turned out to be surprisingly seamless.
