Blockchain is all over the news nowadays, but what does it mean to the automotive industry?
Understanding Blockchain technology: zooming out to observe structural challenges in the automotive industry
How could blockchain address these challenges?
With innovation budgets increasing each year and R&D efficiency decreasing in the western world, many companies are starting to get creative with how they structure and what claims they include in a patent. This is not only to give their technology better protection but to also increase the value of their claims.
One of the methods that is becoming prevalent in the Automotive and Consumer Good Industries is the use of Human Experience factors in a patent. By link your technology to the User Experience provided by it. This is useful when filing in crowded patent spaces, enabling broader protection at lower cost than a "picket fence" IP strategy.
Jason Lye (IAM 300 Strategist), and Founder of Lyco Works, who has used this technique with many of his clients will be exploring some of these patents and how to make the most out of User Experience in this webinar.
The automotive industry has been a leader in factory automation over the past 30 years. Much of the difficult, repetitive, physical work of producing cars – like welding, painting, assembly, etc. - is now done by industrial robots. While this automation has delivered benefits, it has also increased the complexity of managing and maintaining the factory. And in some cases, high levels of hard automation have reduced production flexibility. Today’s “fourth industrial revolution” is enabled by digitization: harvesting the vast amounts of data in these automated factories, to improve productivity/quality/flexibility through advanced analytics and cognitive systems. This webinar will introduce some of the key opportunities for digitizing automotive production, based on Hitachi’s experience in the sector.
· Digitization of Manufacturing: Opportunities & Challenges
· Three Digitization Opportunities: Welding, Painting, Assembly
· Conclusions & Lessons Learned
In a recent Frost & Sullivan event organized in collaboration with IBM, along with digital heads of major OEMs and suppliers on the eve of the Paris Motor show, it was concluded that by 2020, Internet-connected vehicles will be the number one application, transmitting over 350 KB of data per minute. The event determined that digitization in the automotive industry will be primarily defined by five key pillars and will have a spiral effect on other industries:
1. Connected Supply Chain
2. Industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0
3. Connected and Autonomous Car
4. Digital Retailing and Vehicle Relationship Management
5. Mobility as a Service (MaaS)
