Automobile & Manufacturing Industry

Pen Down Your Ideas

The global automotive industry has been enjoying strong growth and profitability in recent decades. But rather than witnessing a period of stability, the sector has been marked by deep structural changes. Although the industry is dominated by large transnational companies from a few countries virtually all of them outsource substantial segments of their vehicle production within national economies and across borders to such an extent that supplier industries have expanded to a size not much smaller than the OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) themselves. Today, automotive manufacturing is based on a global chain of supplies of such magnitude that the traditional concept of international trade has been challenged and the question raised of whether national governments still have enough political leverage to regulate investment and production capacities, even if they wanted to. During this period of development of global value chains several emerging economies have identified automotive manufacturing as a strategic pillar in their endeavour to catch up with the developed countries. Authors are requested to follow the IOP journal guidelines when formatting their papers, these are available from the website at

Automotive Engineering acmes various issues associated with automobile manufacturing which adheres to vehicle parts and accessories in context with the environmental influence and safety of automotive products, production services and manufacturing processes. Human capacities and limitations are main concern under this area. One uses this information to create and improve tools and systems that maximize usability and user experience. The manufacturing and materials deals with improving the highly sophisticated process of vehicle and component production for efficiency, economy, quality, sustainability and safety.

Education system

Pen Down Your Ideas

The term education system generally refers to public schooling, not private schooling, and more commonly to kindergarten through high school programs. Schools or school districts are typically the smallest recognized form of "Education System" and countries are the largest. States are also considered to have education systems. Authors are requested to follow the IOP journal guidelines when formatting their papers, these are available from the website at

Ground Up Diversity

Changing education through talks, writing, advising, and teaching.

Social Networking

Many educators believe this is the route to engaging students in learning all the basic skills they need.

Talking Education

Educators believe using talking or videos to review lessons and teach concepts helps students learn and retain more.

Lesson Study

Lesson study applies to style of teaching. Conceptually, lesson study promotes the idea that teachers constantly improve and change their style of teaching based on students' performance and reaction to it.

Constructive Struggling

The student shouldn't be embarrassed about failing the first time around, not even the second or third time. The instructor should actually encourage students to learn from that failure.

The Internet of things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity which enable these objects to connect and exchange data. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to inter-operate within the existing Internet infrastructure. The IoT allows objects to be sensed or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit in addition to reduced human intervention. When IoT is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, virtual power plants, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities.

Smart and Green Energy Technology

Pen Down Your Ideas

Energy is the largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions globally and many cities already account for three quarters of energy consumption and 82% of CO2 emissions. However, as renewables penetration grows, smaller generation technologies continue to reduce in cost and smaller storage technologies mature, hence there is an opportunity for cities to reap the social and environmental benefits that a distributed energy model can offer them, while also meeting their climate change objectives and becoming more resilient. We need to contribute and achieve the set targets by developing future frameworks and plans and help deliver innovative technological solutions that provide a systematic approach.

As well as improving performance, reliability and controllability, moving to a smarter grid will reduce emissions by allowing greater integration of renewables and more efficient use of the energy they produce, integration of smart vehicles which can act as storage devices to reduce transmission losses and promote cleaner transport and the introduction of demand response mechanisms to reduce demand. This transformation will require a stepped approach with consideration for the built environment and societal structures that already exist. While long-term planning is crucial, it must include identification and prioritization of the steps which need to be taken from now to the future to realize success.

Achieving a Smart Green City requires significant collaboration across all stakeholders. End-users of services must buy-in to concepts for a successful long term outcome. New innovative technology will need to be open source for easy connectivity to other systems and providers will need to prove it is robust. While each city’s approach will be slightly different, national and global collaboration are vital to develop standards and best practices.
