An important role in Mobility 4.0 are playing new materials and innovative design. Lightweight construction concepts are crucial for longer ranges of electric vehicles, modern battery and charging technologies call for specifically developed materials and composites.
The increasing automation of driving and eventually the fully autonomous driving will fundamentally change the design of vehicles which demands new production technologies that manufacturers and suppliers will have to adopt – and are already doing so. Leading companies like SAPA, Krempel, MWS, Wieland, ThyssenKrupp, Hydro, Advanced Technology or ContiTech have already used the opportunity to present their innovations at the 2017 trade fair. Cars will be the most important connected devices in the future and will transform from a pure mobility device to a „Third Place“ in addition to home and work place.
Therefore, upcoming vehicle generations must provide a welcoming environment. New materials are also crucial as the trend towards individualization demands a continuous enhancement of material and production concepts in order to enable the production of small numbers at acceptable costs. This may turn 3D printing, e.g. of components and interior parts, into a key technology of the New Mobility. Therefore, we see our trade fair eMove360° as the ideal platform to unite both aspects.
