Automotive

A fresh perspective on automotive design engineering.

With over 10 years experience in automotive design engineering we know how to make vehicles safe, sustainable and enjoyable. Over the last decade we have supported leading car manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers to develop innovative vehicle solutions.

Technology innovation in the automotive industry is changing. A shift in focus to electrification creates new challenges with range, efficiency and aesthetics. At the same time there must be a constant focus on cost control, to ensure any new technology is competitive.

Similarly the evolution of more futuristic technologies, like autonomous vehicles, also requires a completely new approach to development. Cross-industry collaboration, and application of modern technologies like IoT will be essential to extend beyond the prototype stage.

Analysing how the customer makes their buying decision, and characterising perceived quality is a huge part of the development process. The fine detail of key features like CMF, lighting and sound all influence the overall driver experience. The ability to define this perception, and then translate it directly into a product requires very specific design engineering skills.

Our unique cross-sector experience enables us to apply fresh thinking from other industries. By applying this to automotive design challenges, we can create new and original opportunities for product innovation.

Autonomous Vehicles as a Cross-Industry Challenge

The rise of autonomous vehicles will deeply transform the way automobiles are employed, as well as the concept itself of owning a car and the infrastructures around the vehicle. As such, the Automotive industry cannot be conceived in isolation to other industrial sectors, such as urban planning and entertainment.
