    • Software shifts into automatic mode
      Automatic code generation is speeding up development and helping to improve automotive system reliability.
    • Coming out party
      Plastics abound inside vehicles, but they are increasingly finding new applications outside the cockpit thanks to a heavy push for lightweight solutions.
    • Cutting emissions down to size
      While the long-term future may deliver an efficient alternative to the internal-combustion engine, a few UK-led projects are tackling short-to medium-term solutions for improving engine-out emissions and efficiency of gasoline and diesel engines.
