The pace of change in automotive

Rapid developments in technology are causing significant shifts in the mobility landscape as well as attracting widespread media coverage and associated public interest. It can be hard to distinguish between overblown hype and innovations that will deliver market value and societal impact. TRL can help automotive industry organisations identify, understand and exploit the technologies with the greatest potential to improve mobility.
