The Future Car: A Siemens Podcast
The car of the future: Electric, connected and autonomous | Joe Barkai
We commissioned independent analyst, Joe Barkai, to write this paper giving his take on how automotive design is changing given the oft-mentioned trends of electrification, connectivity and autonomy. We decided to present that paper in audio form in this episode, along with a brief introductory discussion with Joe, who's also Chairman of the Automotive IoT program at SAE International and former VP of research at IDC.
Notably, Joe not only provides a relatively thorough and evergreen assessment of the megatrends daily in the news, but also devotes a bit of analysis to implications of all this disruption for PLM. He writes: "A common PLM platform enables uniform access to authoring tools and exchanges information with enterprise systems, automates manual processes and provides migration and translation from legacy systems. With integrations for enterprise software systems such as PDM, ALM, CAD and ERP, this next generation platform connects all users into a single set of information and processes."
An editor's note here that the paper also includes links to source material and additional information, so if you enjoy the episode, make sure to download the PDF for more. You can find Joe on Twitter @JoeBarkai.
Thanks for listening and let us know what you think about this format as we continue to experiment with how to make the most of our podcast feed. The example we are following here is from publications like The Economist and The New Yorker which offer some or all of their written articles in audio, as well.
