The current trend of electrification in the automotive industry challenges not only the development teams, but also the production lines and quality testing. While the ICE (internal combustion engine) production rely on the well-established hot and cold testing of engines applying vibration and sound measurements; assembly of electrified vehicles requires new advanced end-of-line (EoL) testing methods and standards.

Infrastructure Policy Watch: impact of Covid-19 behaviour change and Australian Budget boost

Article | February 21, 2020

The National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) has published a new assessment of how behaviour change brought by Covid-19 will impact infrastructure networks as part of its prep work ahead of the second National Infrastructure Assessment. The NIC’s findings are that it's too early to assume that Covid-19 behaviour change will lead to completely different patterns of infrastructure use, even if these changes remain in place. The commission recommends using realistic scenarios and planning responses to the range of possibilities these scenarios present to manage uncertainty. They also suggest a more ‘adaptive’ approach to longer-term project commitments and using data to understand how changes are unfolding.
