Motive works with companies looking to bring relevant technology to market, by working with them in the pre-commercialisation phase. Our existing relationships in the automotive industry as well as various technology and financial groups, combined with our ability to showcase technology and generate media interest, assists in creating an accelerated route to commercialisation.
Motive takes an interest in technology that is aligned with our goals and mission as a company and that will offer key advancements and innovations to the industry. With applicable technologies Motive will work as the pre commercialisation partner to: bring attention and awareness of the technology to the market, work through the path to commercialisation by finding suitable applications and find strategic commercialisation partners.
An example of the technology areas we are interested in are the following:
Advanced Manufacturing and Technology
"Everything we know about design and manufacturing is about to change."
From the manufacturing process used to develop vehicles to the technology contained within the vehicles themselves, we are constantly seeing innovations within the sector. The 20th century brought the industrial revolution. The 21st Century is bringing the next wave of advancements in manufacturing technology. We are on the brink of a massive paradigm shift.
By embracing these new technologies and combining them with the best of traditional manufacturing knowledge, we are able to design vehicles from the outset to utilise the most efficient path to prototyping and production. As well, by understanding advancements in vehicle technology before they are mainstream, we can adjust vehicle design to ensure that incorporating the technology down the road can be done with only minor adjustments.
As we move into the new era of materials science, design companies must be prepared to effectively deploy these materials into new projects. At Motive we pride ourselves on being agile enough to make rapid decisions regarding new material application, but wise enough to know what will and will not work in the real world.
We are constantly monitoring advancements in composite materials, metals, nanotechnology, coatings, plastics and ceramics. We look to understand the benefits derived from the use of these materials and look to find areas to apply and test new materials.
Along with advancements in manufacturing and materials, the design tools available today far surpass expectations held even a few years ago. Today there is little separation between computer models and reality, as advanced computer simulations have proven time and time again to match real-world testing.
At Motive, our elite design team utilizes the latest software tools which complement our focus on advanced technology and provide unparalleled solutions in the application of new materials. With industry-standard ALIAS and CATIA as our primary design software, we can provide solutions throughout the manufacturing process from clean-sheet design to factory throughput.
With our focus on the application of cutting-edge technologies, we strive to be the first and the best in the automotive industry in understanding new design tools and their relevance to ongoing and upcoming projects.
