Autonomous vehicles come with a unique set of vehicle architecture challenges that OEMs must overcome for a safe, comfortable and convenient passenger experience. The Steel E-Motive program is using Advanced High-Strength Steel technologies to meet these challenges
Autonomous vehicle technology is enabling the reduction of tailpipe emissions, but it isn’t enough to reduce the operational emissions of these vehicles. The use of steel in the manufacture of the Steel E-Motive vehicle concept is enabling us to produce a mobility solution which is sustainable across the full product life cycle, from manufacture through to end of life.
Autonomous vehicles for mobility as a service need batteries which enable safe, cost effective vehicle operation with maximum range and vehicle uptime. Steel E-Motive is using steel technology to meet the requirements of both fleet operators and their customers.
Autonomous vehicles are going to be a gamer changer for the Mobility as a Service industry. They will transform the way we get passengers and goods from A to B and improve access to on-demand convenient public transportation. However, studies show that consumers...
Advanced High-Strength Steels are strong, durable and ductile materials. They are enabling autonomous vehicle architectures which are safe, lightweight and sustainable. The Steel E-Motive program is using AHSS in the vehicle structure to protect passengers in the event of a crash scenario.
Affordable transport solutions are increasingly important for society. The Steel E-Motive program is developing an autonomous mobility as a service solution using steel technology to lower the upfront cost to fleet operators who can then offer affordable transport solutions to their customers.
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is one of the main concerns of any fleet operator, no matter what service they are providing. Mobility Service Providers need confidence that new mobility-as-a-service solutions will enable them to provide an excellent customer experience...
Ride hailing and ride sharing are going to grow in demand as personal vehicle ownership continues to fall. Steel is enabling us to push the boundaries of what a mobility as a service vehicle can be. It is allowing us to meet consumer requirements for clean, affordable, safe, and sustainable transportation in our towns and cities.
The average taxi and private hire vehicle will do significantly more milage than a personal automotive over its service life. The extra millage means that taxi and private hire vehicles can expect their vehicles to have a lower serviceable life expectancy than a personal transport vehicle. The durability of steel makes it the ideal material to extend the useful life of the vehicle and to make service and maintenance cost-effective and efficient.
Smart Cities require connected transportation network solutions which are s safe, sustainable, affordable and accessible. Steel E-Motive is using steel to develop our mobility as a service vehicle concepts to meet the challenges and requirements of future urban environments.
