GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Leaders in the auto industry are meeting in the upstate this week and that conference could yield new advancements in automotive technology.
One of the topics widely discussed at this year’s South Carolina Automotive Summit is vehicle automation or what’s widely known in the industry as computation. That’s the collection and processing of data by vehicle allowing them to do things without human direction.
Similar technology already exists, but experts say it’s rapidly advancing and South Carolina is playing a key role in that development.
“The folks that are here are very high-tech and very advanced and they really pushed the industry forward in terms of new technologies and new opportunities,” said Catherine Hayes, executive director of the South Carolina Automotive Council.
South Carolina has become a major player in the auto manufacturing industry with the success of BMW and Mercedes Benz plants. The summit wraps up on Wednesday.
