Mercedes is pushing further into the motorhome market with a new “micro-camper” line. It will soon reveal the all-electric Concept EQT Marco Polo camper van slated to join the Marco Polo Module in offering two styles of multifunctional micro-camper. Looking to branch out, Volkswagen has tried its hand at designing transport for workers stuck behind Automotive a desk. VW’s new high-tech office chair comes complete with an electric motor, headlights, horn, an entertainment system, and even a trailer hitch. Every year, the non-profit organisation Global Footprint Network announces the Earth Overshoot Day. It marks the day when humanity has used up the resources that planet Earth can provide in a year.
- It is ideal for 3D gesture sensing as well as 2D/3D driver and interior monitoring applications.
- This type of production emits 90% less CO2 than steel production in a conventional blast furnace.
- EFI Automotive offers solutions for electrical engines to help drivers and manage the electrical energy in a vehicle.

The company built plant with 15,000 vehicle capacity in Bekasi, West Java. The first locally made product of the new company was the Opel Vectra , followed by the Opel Optima and the Opel Blazer SUV as the first right-hand drive Blazer in 1995. The Land Cruiser dominated the “Jeep” category until the early 1980s, when lighter and more economical competitors began taking away its market share. Unable to compete with the smaller offerings from Suzuki and Daihatsu, Toyota chose to not further increase the local content levels of the Land Cruiser and had withdrawn it from the Indonesian market by 1986.

The move to equip vehicles with increasingly sophisticated driver assistance systems, and eventually to make the vehicle fully autonomous, requires a combination of object detection and imaging sensors. By combining radar detectors, cameras and optical depth sensing systems such as LiDAR, a vehicle can capture a detailed, real-time view of the space around it, while building in redundancy to protect against the failure of any one sensor. It is estimated that 80% of all innovations in the automotive industry today are directly or indirectly enabled by electronics. With vehicle functionality improving with every new model, this means a continuous increase in the semiconductor content per car. The evolution towards an electric mobility is creating a paradigm shift for the automotive and energy sectors. In the future, we will see countless new business models that combine profitability and sustainability — going far beyond the sale of vehicles, electricity and batteries.
