Siemens press release
Siemens PLM Software and the Michigan-based American Center for Mobility (ACM) announced today a new partnership that brings Siemens’ Simulation and Test solution for Automotive to ACM to support virtual and physical testing and validation of automated and connected vehicles. Siemens is already part of similar strategic initiatives in Singapore and the Netherlands, once considered to be early adopters of AV technology, applications and solutions and now leaders in the testing and deployment of autonomous vehicles and infrastructure in real-world environments.
Join us May 17 as IHS Market unveils the latest from the Gear Market Report. This comprehensive report provides information on U.S. economic conditions, industry conditions for gears, gear market bookings, and gear market shipments.
Center for Automotive Research
The intersection of the technology and transportation industries is drastically altering the mobility landscape. This union has created entirely new value streams and business models, attracting the attention of consumers and automotive companies (OEMs) alike. Numerous new passenger transportation options, collectively called innovative mobility services (IMS), have emerged int eh past twenty years and some have seen significant growth.
While pop culture predicts VR will be the death of us, actual industrial use cases in research labs and industrial environments hint at its current potential: speeding design, boosting productivity and giving workers more freedom.

MIT engineers at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) are tackling the problem of alternative modes of transit in rural areas. They are creating MapLite, which is essentially an autonomous system that doesn’t need a map. It uses GPS data to fetch a "rough estimate" of the car’s location, but then relies on artificial intelligence and LIDAR to trace a correct and safe path to its ultimate destination.
New Atlas
The flying taxi scene is now a bustling place, but some are moving faster than others. Where some startups have taken years to move past the prototype stage, others are launching right into things. Workhorse first unveiled its Surefly flying car at the Paris Air Show in June last year, and has now sent it into the air with a person inside for the first time.
Northern Ontario Business
Innovation Initiatives Ontario North (IION), in partnership with Canadore College will be offering a new program to train participants in advanced manufacturing skills and increase technology adoption within industry.
The team at Essentium is always up for a challenge. Whether that’s the challenge of toughening up materials, changing the physics of 3D printing, or backing up their bold claims, the company is ready to rock and roll. Essentium’s new High Speed Extrusion (HSE) platform addresses strength, speed, and cost issues in what the company describes as a system "10x faster than any other industrial extrusion platform."

Explore gear failure analysis in this hands‐on seminar where students not only see slides of failed gears but can hold and examine those same field samples close up. Experience the use of microscope and take your own contact pattern from field samples.
With innovation, products are quickly becoming more complex, sophisticated, and personalized. Change is already underway in a number of fields. 3D printing is revolutionizing production of metal parts for aerospace, automotive, and medical applications. Next-generation machines are transforming the apparel world, with custom-made clothing to fit an individual’s size and preference.  Facilities, like the Adidas "Speedfactory," where automated robots create custom-designed shoes on-demand, threaten to make standardized mass-produced goods a thing of the past.
Manufacturing Global
Bridging the skills gap isn’t just about attracting new entrants. Retaining existing staff is also key to effectively navigating the fourth industrial revolution as it transforms the way manufacturing operates. Consequently, it’s vital for businesses to develop talent strategies that build skills in emerging areas – such as AI and robotics – while holding on to traditional expertise.

Legacy procurement processes aren’t designed to handle the complexities of smart manufacturing. High-tech solutions that fail to rapidly deliver business results are all too common.
Meritor press release
Meritor, Inc. announced that it has acquired substantially all of the assets of AA Gear & Manufacturing, Inc. and its subsidiaries.

German manufacturing orders dropped unexpectedly in March due to weak foreign demand, especially for capital goods, official data showed Monday. Total manufacturing orders fell by 0.9% from the month before, which marks the third straight monthly decline, according to the Federal Statistical Office. Economists polled by The Wall Street Journal had forecast an increase of 0.5%.
A manufacturing consultant firm shares the common goals that successful companies share when shifting to a digital paradigm.
3D printing is used increasingly in projects that require some type of recognition – for instance, CENIT’s 3D software tool can analyze a topologically optimized component and allocate it to the correct bionic component in a CAD catalog, and a cyber security firm fooled the iPhone X facial recognition system with a 3D printed mask. Now, motion control technology provider Moog is teaming up with the University at Buffalo, part of the SUNY System and no stranger to 3D printing, to develop artificial intelligence (AI) for image recognition in metal 3D printing.
