Designing an autonomous electric vehicle (EV) that is fit for use in the future involves a range of projections based on data that is currently available, coupled with engineering expertise. This includes conducting a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) that looks at the...
An innovative, affordable, and easy-to-manufacture future vehicle for Mobility as a Service It takes some imagination to envision a future with a radically different transport system, where people travel in autonomous vehicles in a ride-hailing model. But ridesharing...
Solving Global Mobility as a Service (MaaS) Challenges: A journey to demonstrate that steel is the solution
The Steel E-Motive team look back on the journey to develop a Mobility as Service solution with steel technologies and engineering excellence.
The innovative design for WorldAutoSteel’s Steel E-Motive autonomous Mobility as a Service concept vehicles includes a range of engineering approaches and a completely different take on an EV battery package. The Steel E-Motive EV battery system is lighter, safer,...
Imagining future transport solutions involves taking the user into account and designing vehicles that people will choose to ride in. Moving towards autonomous vehicles designed to operate within a ride-hailing, mobility as a service (MaaS) model requires designers to...
In this blog, Neil McGregor outlines how safety structures are being developed for the Steel E-Motive vehicles using AHSS and innovative vehicle architecture solutions.
Transport and the way people use it is changing. In the next 20-years, urban mobility is expected to be transformed by the widespread roll-out of fully autonomous vehicles operating within a ride-hailing, mobility as a service (MaaS) model. This will enable people living in and visiting cities to plan, book, and pay for multiple types of mobility services through a digital channel.
How AHSS is improving high voltage battery design and integration in electric vehicles for MaaS applications
Owain Davies discusses how Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) is enabling a greater level of flexibility when making battery design decisions for a safe, comfortable and accessible autonomous vehicle experience.
Life Cycle Assessment: 6 areas designers need to consider when taking an LCA approach to vehicle development
A blog by Russ Balzer, Technical Director for WorldAutoSteel and Dr. Don Malen, College of Engineering at the University of MichiganLife Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a methodology that considers a product’s entire life cycle, from raw material and production...
Goodbye driver experience, hello ‘journey experience’: exploring the passenger experience in autonomous vehicles for MaaS applications
As Mobility as a Service vehicles become increasingly automated, Neil McGregor discusses passengers want from their autonomous vehicle experience and how the Steel E-Motive vehicle is being designed to take this into account.
