Despite many technological advancements in the last 100 years, moving people and infrastructure around on land continues to be dominated by rail and road. Driverless car technology and a shift in population from suburbs to mega cities will see a collapse in the quantity of cars produced on a worldwide basis.
This fundamental transformation will require a completely new infrastructure and technology on board vehicles for driverless and vehicle sharing, that will transform current custom and practice. Many opportunities present, including embedded sensor technology in cable harnesses and systems, which Scientific Management International are already at the forefront of in terms of technology development.
The areas where we deliver solutions with ‘right first time, every time, fit and forget’ terminations are not regular or everyday. We operate in hostile environments – where you need to be assured that the connections for data or power will simply never fail as they are mission critical. Increasingly with driverless cars this will be the case.
This doesn’t mean they’re expensive or should only be used at the bottom of the Mariana Trench, what it does mean is that if you’re having an issue with connectivity or communications that you can’t resolve we can help.
The proposed route for HS2 between London and Birmingham includes over 70 miles of cuttings or tunnels – places where you will get standing water in or near electrical boxes which over time will cause problems with connections. This situation is replicated many times over across the globe.
Imagine the efficiency gains from 100% network reliability, for that you need to turn to Scientific Management International to ensure “right first time fit and forget”.
