For today’s Manufacturing Monday, I visited the Cobo Center for SAE’s 2019 WCX event, and got the chance to witness the progress of self-driving vehicles firsthand! The car provided by Metro Detroit’s Dataspeed had several modes that allowed full autonomous driving, driving from the back seat with a secondary steering wheel, and regular driving.
For this week’s Manufacturing Monday, I had the pleasure of touring International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW)’s Electrical Industry Training Center! They provide training for many skilled trades including pipefitting, electrical work, and welding.
I recently had the chance to visit FEV North America, which specializes in hybrid systems, autonomous testing, electric vehicles, and more!
This week I attended a launch event in Novi for two new clothing brands - OnPurpose Socks and Quest Brand clothing - designed and created by students at Novi High School, through the school’s new business incubator program for seniors.
