More than infotainment: Panasonic on self-driving cars and Tesla’s battery factory

The company is working on new human-machine interfaces for the car.


Everyone wants a slice of the self-driving car market, and we can now add electronics giant Panasonic to that list. Tom Gebhardt, head of Panasonic's US automotive division spelled out the company's plans in an interview with Automotive News. He said that Panasonic has ideas about the way we interact with autonomous cars, which the company will develop out of its expertise with infotainment systems.

The company is also working closely with Tesla on the battery "Gigafactory" in Nevada, which will be key to Tesla's ability to deliver almost 400,000 Model 3 electric vehicles to those in that gigantic queue of preorders. Gebhardt wasn't able to put a number on Panasonic's contribution to the factory—apparently that's down to Tesla—but he said that the company would "do what we need to do to assure supply."

Electric motors by Telsa are the finest example of innovation and are playing a major role in lowering the motor temperature. Furthermore, company’s major focus on manufacturing electric vehicles has further equipped the makers to design cars right from a clean sheet of paper. In addition, the company has also created a robust engineering learning curve. Major brands are also experimenting by shrinking the electric motors yet maintaining the quality. In a recent incident DeltaWing and DHX made news by introducing light and small motors, that can reduce the weight and volume needs can enhance the efficiency of the car. This further results in greater range.
