    Money on the move - R&D budgets of the future

    Money on the move - R&D budgets of the future

    Automotive research and development (R&D) is at a pivotal moment as we enter a new age of vehicles, with electrification, autonomy and connectivity all driving technological advancements.

    With this in mind, how are industry stakeholders shifting their R&D budgets? IHS Markit’s Research Director and software expert Dr. Tawhid Khan explains how and why OEMs and suppliers by region have differing priorities when it comes to their R&D spend.

    And with the growth of software, how will spending for hardware research be impacted?

    This week’s Autology episode outlines exactly how much money is expected to be spent across different areas of software R&D, and when in-vehicle software will eventually outvalue that of hardware components.

    Speakers:
    Elisha Thakorlal, OEM Strategy expert at IHS Markit
    Dr. Tawhid Khan, Research Director and software expert at IHS Markit

    How long does it actually take for an EV to charge?

    How long does it actually take for an EV to charge?

    As EVs sales continue to grow, the question remains if global charging infrastructure and technology is adequate for consumers.

    For those who may be still wary of purchasing fully electric vehicles over traditionally fueled cars, a key factor to consider is how long will EVs take to charge? Will it be longer than filling up at a gas station, and will it be more often?

    IHS Markit’s e-mobility experts answer all the practical questions needed to make an EV purchasing decision, and also discuss how charging infrastructure and batteries are expected to improve in future.

    Tune into this week’s episode of Autology to find out all.

    Speakers:
    Elisha Thakorlal, OEM Strategy expert at IHS Markit
    Graham Evans, E-Mobility research and analysis director at IHS Markit

    The blueprint - How 3D printing will be used in cars

    The blueprint - How 3D printing will be used in cars

    As OEMs increasingly explore three-dimensional printing for vehicle components, IHS Markit experts ask whether or not the technology is likely to go mainstream.

    The technology is particularly on a growth trend as a result of the move towards electrified vehicles, as the weight from batteries needs to be countered by lightweighting techniques in other areas of the car.

    And if 3D printing does indeed become economically viable for OEMs, does that put some suppliers at risk as parts become increasingly vertically integrated by carmakers?

    Could we also see a large proportion of light vehicles 3D printed in the distant future? All will be answered in this week’s episode of Autology.

    Speakers:
    Elisha Thakorlal, OEM Strategy expert at IHS Markit
    Edwin Pope, Principal Research Analyst for Lightweighting at IHS Markit

    Robot wars - Why Android is beating the competition

    Robot wars - Why Android is beating the competition

    With connectivity playing a pivotal role in new car experiences, IHS Markit looks at the major player set to dominate the infotainment market—Android.

    Google has a full suite of offerings under its automotive ecosystem with Android Automotive OS supporting Google Automotive Services (GAS), Generic Android core system that OEMs can build upon, the widely popular projection platform Android Auto, as well as Google Cloud. It has already secured business from the likes of Ford, Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, Stellantis, General Motors and Volvo.

    We ask why Android is beating the competition, and if this will have ramifications on the smartphone industry, for example, will consumers move more toward an Android phone to align with their car software?

    And then there’s the question of where this is leading—with Apple touted to launch its own vehicle through its Project Titan, can we expect an Android car as well? Find out all in this week’s episode of Autology.

    Speakers:
    Elisha Thakorlal, OEM Strategy expert at IHS Markit
    Brian Rhodes, Connected Car & Vehicle Experience manager at IHS Markit
    Aseem Uppal, Connected Car expert at IHS Markit

    Chips ahoy! Making up the chip shortfall

    Chips ahoy! Making up the chip shortfall

    This year has seen the automotive industry come to a halt—with various OEMs pausing their vehicle production all over the world—due to a small but vital missing piece: chips.

    While the shortage may seemingly be backfilled for now, IHS Markit experts reveal why this supply-demand issue is yet to cause some further disruption.

    Find out how and when the global chip famine will recover in this week’s episode of Autology, including who the major stakeholders will be in producing the component—as well as the governments and regions leading the charge.

    We also discuss how the technology is expected to develop in the long term, and answer the all-important question of whether or not there will be a continual spike in demand come Q4 every year when the consumer electronics industry ramps up their own use of chips.

    Speakers:
    Elisha Thakorlal, OEM Strategy expert at IHS Markit
    Jeremie Bouchaud, Director of Autonomy and E/E & Semiconductor at IHS Markit
    Phil Amsrud, E/E & Semiconductor expert at IHS Markit

    5G on wheels - Revolution or evolution?

    5G on wheels - Revolution or evolution?

    In this week’s episode of Autology, we discuss 5G’s impact on the IoT ecosystem and specifically on the automotive industry, including the transition away from 4G LTE, the first applications to deploy it, and the implications that will result.

    Infrastructure investments are bearing fruit by way of rapidly available 5G connections to our smart devices. These same developments are already seeing application in healthcare, manufacturing, and even automotive.

    Automotive services like virtual personal assistants and over-the-air software updates are already here to stay, but 5G will be the trigger for next generation services such advanced safety features brought on by vehicle-to-everything communication and full vehicle upgradability. When this will happen and at what cost are just some of the key questions discussed by our industry experts.

    Speakers:
    Andreas Kohn, Chief Operating Officer at Rolling Wireless
    Beatriz Minamy, Principal Technical Research Analyst, Connected Car at IHS Markit
    Brian Rhodes, Research & Analysis Manager, Connected Car & Vehicle Experience at IHS Markit
