The discovery of a new field in oil industry, the definition of its production capacity and its preparation for production require significant investments and long time.
The most frequent electric car problems 2020 have a lot in common with traditional cars too: here’s when and why. Electric cars: the most frequent problems
Driverless, electric and shared: the cars of the future will be very different from how we know them today. First of all, less polluting, but also safer and aimed at entertainment. And of course, oil industry will take a break of this huge consumption sector. Above all, they will employ many more people than today: so get ready to see the trend explode in the coming years.
When you imagine the future, do you think of flying cars, super-fast band and devices under the skin? If the Internet of Things already characterizes a growing number of everyday objects, if we have the ability to make payments without physically using a credit card and if the sharing mentality now allows us to share practically anything, there is no doubt that the next steps can lead us to even more drastic changes.
For some time now we have been hearing about sustainable and electric cars, cars that drive themselves, cars available to everyone for urban mobility. Governments are taking action to promote the development of new generation cars in compliance with environmental standards, and so are car manufacturers. The sector is booming. But what are the repercussions for business, for society, and above all for work?
According to the latest report on e-mobility, a technological consultancy company in various areas of innovation, including the automotive sector, only three years ago electric mobility was a reflection that interested a quarter of companies in the sector. Today, however, it is a strategic experimentation that will characterize 65% of the sector over the next three years. There are even those who hypothesize that within a maximum of ten years the roads will be traveled mainly by autonomous vehicles. And rather than owned, it will be preferable to use them in sharing, riding the wave of today’s car sharing.
In short, what lies ahead is a revolution that will affect everyone, not just the workers in the sector. Are we ready to embrace this change? From a business point of view, it would seem so: for some time now the big names in the automotive sector have set their sights on the potential of the electric car, and are working to develop consumption efficiency and sustainable ones from a mechanical point of view. The autonomous driving, however, still remains a page to be written, but it remains one of the priorities for business development. The direction is clear and the resources that need to be put in place as well: in the near future, it can be said that everything will be played on the acquisition of the right resources and skills.
Surely e-mobility will have a disruptive impact in the future, companies will have to field resources in research and innovation with a focus on data security and V2X connectivity
With the advent of autonomous driving and the electric, the new frontiers will substantiate, more than on mechanics, on the acquisition of new technologies and on the development of the software necessary to allow cars to become more and more not only means of transport, but also an opportunity to spend time entertaining.
New professions require skills that are currently rare, which the market is ready to exploit. New professionals will be needed, in particular app developers and artificial intelligence specialists to enable the creation of an entire infotainment offering (audio, communications, entertainment services and satellite navigation) inside the cockpit. And of course , cybersecurity experts will also be needed, due to the large amount of data that we will send while spending time in the car (which will be constantly connected to the network).
Therefore, more and more car manufacturers will have to enter into strategic partnerships with startups and service providers to complete the offer of the transport experience.
In Europe alone, the change in production processes is expected to lead to the creation of over 2 million jobs, while around 120,000 jobs are lost naturally, the competition to win the most competent figures in this sense will be increasingly tight: universities are not yet ready to train professionals specialized in these sectors, and on the other hand companies do not yet have the ability to develop internally and in full the skills they need.
For those who want to try their hand at studying these new professions, the prize is therefore guaranteed: a young man specialized in computer engineering, a developer or a robotics expert will find work in no time at all.
The impact of the evolution of the automotive industry on the world of work is therefore considerable: in Europe alone, the change in production processes should lead to the creation of over 2 million jobs. The turnover of skills and labor will instead see the extinction of about 120,000 jobs, especially in the manufacturing sector (the production of electronic components allows a saving of 40% on labor). Not only that: in addition to IT developers, the training of specialized mechanics who know how to solve electric motor failures will naturally acquire more and more importance.
What and how many the frontiers of development will be is still difficult to say. But if we consider that just a few days ago Elon Musk announced that one of his Tesla models will fly for real, the future we have in mind could really be closer than it seems.
