Traditional automakers work at a much slower clock-speed than Silicon Valley. In many respects, they have to. Automobiles are very complicated pieces of machinery and can have a big impact on public safety. Even so, automakers want to speed up their clock-speed. Today’s show is about how they’re doing that.

Automakers are equipping cars with ADAS, or advanced driver assistance systems, including radar, sonar and video cameras. This is the technology that can make cars safer with blind spot detection, automated emergency braking and lane keeping. But if your car gets bent up in an accident, who’s going to make sure these sensors are properly aimed and calibrated? In collaboration with I-CAR, the independent collision auto repair association, we have three automotive repair experts weighing in on what the industry needs to do to make sure ADAS technology truly keeps your car safe.

John McElroy, Autoline.tv

Automakers have to sell electric cars. It’s the law. But so far EVs only account for 1.4% of all new car sales. So how can automakers grow the EV segment? Escalent is a research firm that’s identified six different groups of new car buyers and what motivates them to buy a new car. You might be surprised by its findings because “saving the environment” is not high on their list. Instead, automakers need to key in on other attributes, which is the topic of this show’s discussion.
