NOVEMBER 2019 THE SHOP 61 and support new vehicle technology, not just as potential profit centers, but as the building blocks for the future of mobility. WORKING SMARTER As technology continues to evolve, we speak about smart cities and what that really means. We like to think that one day vehicles will drive themselves and we will be living in a Jetsons-type world. Loosely defined, a smart city is a municipality that uses information and communication technologies (ICT) to increase operational efficiency, share information with the public and improve both the quality of government services and citizen welfare. And, while I do believe we'll get there eventually, I am also aware of the time and effort it will take to make this a reality. In previous articles, I have written about Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) technology being the building blocks for autonomy. These are the technologies that will one day be driving smart cities across the country. OSR Enterprises AG and Jaguar Land Rover are collaborating to enhance Advanced Driver- Assistance Systems (ADAS), automated driving and securely connected technologies for the era of new mobility. As a shop, the more experience you have with ADAS, the better prepared you'll be for new opportunities.
