One of the application areas we spend a lot of time covering is automotive. The reason is that so many engineering disciplines and sub-application areas go into building a car (or truck, RV, or other moving vehicle).
The mechanical engineers make moving parts move (obviously), and the electrical engineers tie in all the various subsystem, ranging from motor control to climate control to the infotainment section. The software engineers get heavily involved in that space, too.
Then there are the thermo-dynamic and materials engineers, who clearly play key roles on the design of a vehicle that needs to continually get lighter, while being able to withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures.
To that end, we recently published a Technology Roundup
, which consists of a series of articles that help that multi-disciplined engineers get their jobs done. Regardless of which subsystem you’re responsible for, we all know that there’s a “need to know” on just about the entire vehicle. Hence, you’ll likely find this series of articles quite informative.
