The technologies used in automobiles are being refined and innovated on an ongoing basis to improve safety, comfort, and to reduce the impact on the environment. Automobile production sites have always competed to build reliable automobile parts quickly and cheaply, but recently there has been a greater emphasis on evaluating the performance of not only individual parts, but also entire modules, which has necessitated more advanced automotive analysis, inspection, and testing. In addition to this, further analysis and evaluation is required for vehicle electrification, battery development and implementation, weight reduction, model-based development, and other strategies to help achieve carbon-neutrality.​
