Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Supply Chain of the Future: How to design for distributed manufacturing, where factories are becoming a social network
  • How to transition from building things that are “dead” to “alive”, capable of sensing their surroundings to generate new design iterations
  • How to apply of the tools of tomorrow, today

Description

Description

What if 3 kids in a garage wanted to start a car company? Is it possible? We believe so. And we're documenting the first research project that will prove it. Visit the Hackrod Pit Stop to get a behind the scenes look at the team, workflow and process to create the first car in history designed and engineered using cloud-based AI, and exported with the full potential of Advanced Manufacturing.  A real-world example of the intersection between the Internet of Things, Machine Learning and Digital Manufacturing. 

Hackrod Defined: AN INFINITELY HACKABLE HIGH PERFORMANCE VEHICLE, MADE POSSIBLE BY ADVANCED MANUFACTURING, DIGITAL DESIGN, AND CROWD COLLABORATION. THE HOT ROD FOR THE 21ST CENTURY.

Mickey Mcmanus

Mickey McManus is Chairman & Principal at MAYA Design and is currently a visiting Research Fellow at Autodesk. He is a pioneer in the field of collaborative innovation, pervasive computing, human-centered design, and education; and he holds 9 patents in the area of connected products, vehicles, and services. Mickey co-authored the widely respected and award-winning book Trillions: Thriving in the Emerging Information Ecology (Wiley 2012). At Autodesk, Mickey is exploring the implications for design, business, technology, and education of a future where computing ceases to be confined to any particular, "box," but instead is freely accessible in the ambient environment. Some call this coming age the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) or the era of Pervasive Computing and characterize it as a time when atoms and bits combine to form a new kind of information ecology. As part of these explorations, Mickey has been wandering around Autodesk, asking questions, fostering conversations, learning by making stuff whenever possible, and digging deeply into Autodesk products and research initiatives, to learn (and to help us understand) where Autodesk is going, and how we can be an integral part in cultivating a future where innovators can thrive and their efforts are in essence "born trillions-ready."
