The world of mobility is going through the biggest transformation since the advent of the automobile, with sustainable transport solutions overtaking carbon-emitting internal combustion engines at an astounding pace. The next generation of low or zero-carbon vehicles will not only be powered by more environmentally-friendly forms of energy, but will also be self-navigating and fully connected to the world around them.
ELECTRIC AND FUEL CELL VEHICLES
Tapping the power of disruption
As electric vehicle (EV) sales, including hybrid and fuel cell vehicles, double every year, market growth is increasingly being stimulated by policies and regulations favoring low-emission vehicles. Consumers are fully embracing the EV trend, while hydrogen is becoming an increasingly promising source of power for heavier vehicles.
With some 3 billion vehicles expected to be on the roads in the coming decades, their parts and components will have to meet rigorous requirements in terms of lightweighting, environmental impact, safety, and performance. It is against these future benchmarks that DOMO is continuously developing its range of TECHNYL® polyamides for the automotive sector.
SELF-NAVIGATION AND CONNECTIVITY
A new dimension of driving
Once the realm of science fiction, self-driving or autonomous vehicles are fast becoming a reality, as the technology evolves at an astounding pace. Advanced driver-assistance systems are already standard in many premium class cars and fully autonomous and shared autonomous vehicle services are in late stages of development.
Self-navigation and connectivity will be a game changer in the automotive industry, spurring innovation and opportunities for both carmakers and suppliers. The premium segment will continue to push the technological boundaries to provide the most cutting-edge capabilities, while advanced driver-assistance systems soon become standard on mid- and entry-level vehicles, driving overall market growth. DOMO’s range of TECHNYL® polyamides for the automotive industry will help you maintain a competitive edge in this new dimension of mobility.
A new, more sustainable era of mobility requires advances in vehicle engineering and more innovative materials to build them.
