Gary Smyth (seen at left), executive director of global research and development at General Motors, recently offered some interesting thoughts in that direction, for he thinks a whole range of new jobs will be created due to the rapid changes taking place in terms vehicle design and propulsion characteristics.
"Not many other industries can embrace the future so holistically," he noted. "We have battery chemists, electrical engineers, manufacturing experts, software developers and social media operators all in one industry, working at making our lives easier and more productive."
For example, he believes that in a decade, work may depend far less on location than on connectivity.
Where cars and trucks are concerned, noted GM's Smyth, 3-D printing only the beginning how technology will reshape manufacturing, as engineering disciplines will be coming to the fore focused solely on how make drivers better based on the data offered by their vehicles.

According to Dr. Gary Smyth, director of Powertrain Systems Research Lab, GM Research & Development and Strategic Planning, "It is GM's goal to develop and demonstrate the viability of HCCI -- a clean, efficient combustion process -- within the next few years. The joint program will allow us to expand the scope of controls, sensors, and actuators work beyond what we're already doing toward this goal."
This technology is attractive, as HCCI engines have the potential to provide a dramatic increase in fuel efficiency over conventional port fuel-injection spark-ignition engines and can run with diesel-like efficiency, but produce near zero particulates and very low NOx emissions. "For example," Smyth said, "gasoline engines could achieve 80% of diesel engine efficiency for about 50 percent of the cost."
According to Dr. Smyth, the joint program nicely blends the two company's needs, as GM explores the potential commercial implementation of HCCI engines, and Bosch strives to develop the technologies critical to the manufacture of key HCCI sensors and actuators. "We bring engine, combustion and control system experience along with key operating strategies," Dr. Smyth said.

"We are especially interested in the development and application of advanced kinetic simulation tools developed by Reaction Design that have the potential to give us added flexibility in evaluating existing engine designs and new combustion concepts," said Dr. Gary Smyth, lab director of GM Research & Development, Powertrain Systems Research Lab.
