These days when it seems everything has gone digital it’s easy to forget about all the mechanical components that are critical to electronics and batteries, especially in cars and trucks. Industry leaders, governments, and citizens all want to reduce carbon emissions and rely less on fossil fuels. At the same time, semi-autonomous and “smart” vehicles are gaining popularity for safety reasons and driver convenience.
When was the last time you drove a car or used an appliance that didn’t include some kind of electronic component? Across industries, electronic devices are becoming commonplace in vehicles, medical devices, and home appliances. They’re also showing up in new places all the time from doorbells to bathroom fixtures.
