Smart Manufacturing for Automotive Virtual Summit

The Only Event Series Dedicated to Smart Manufacturing for Automotive

9 June 2022   |  PACIFIC TIMEZONE

Smarter Manufacturing for Smarter Vehicles

As vehicles continue to evolve at a rapid pace, integrating AI, sensors and other emerging technologies adds to the build complexity. This is forcing manufacturers to reassess their processes and implement technologies that can streamline vehicle creation and keep pace with changing consumer demand.


While automotive OEMs and suppliers continue to leverage smart technologies to drive down costs, optimize production and enhance efficiency, the influx of data, increased security risks, and need for interoperable human and robot collaboration present a challenge.


To respond to these obstacles, manufacturers must establish effective data, security and business transformation strategies in order to accelerate their industry 4.0 initiatives.
