Mobility is transforming at the speed of technology. Through the power of collaboration and materials science, vehicles are becoming safer, higher performing and more efficient. These tech-enabled modernizations are shaping the future of mobility, and for us at Dow, that also means changing how we innovate, design and select materials to create the next generation of accessible, connected, and sustainable mobility solutions.
“As a group, as a team, we have huge capability in some spaces, but to come to a real expert who have the materials capability to tell us how we can improve is where we have seen real improvement as a team.”
- James Barclay
On this episode of the Seek Together Podcast, our host Eva Saha is joined by Tim Boven, Global MobilityScience™ Director at Dow, and James Barclay, Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal and Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover Motorsport, to discuss what the future of mobility holds. They discuss the role of materials science to tackle challenges and capitalize on opportunities presented by the electrification of vehicles. Together, they explore the megatrends of automotive innovation and explain the dynamic connection between innovation for Formula E racing cars and the evolution of consumer vehicles.
Motorsport is both the catalyst and platform for cutting-edge innovation in mobility. From its earliest days, racing has provided an exciting and important testing ground for the industry’s latest prototypes and a demonstration of how experts come together to create best-in-class performance vehicles. On this episode, Jaguar TCS Racing gave us a glimpse ‘under the hood’ at the cutting-edge innovations that helped them make history with a second-place team finish in the 2020/2021 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, and how both the seen and unseen race car improvements that led to a record-breaking season can be scaled and integrated into our own future vehicles.
