SAE WCX17 in Detroit, Michigan

This time last year I was very fortunate to be invited to the World Reconstruction Exposition in Orlando. As part of the week’s activities I gave two lectures on the current research in finding out what happens to the instrument needles in a collision.

It was a fantastic week with lots of information to be had. I had written a technical paper to go with the lectures, however unless you were there you did not get the paper.

The research is now being used across the world with useful results. Analogue dials will still be around for many years to come and I still have lots of interest from Collision Investigators around the world who ask about the details of the research and for documented research to present to courts. So with a little additional editing I submitted a technical paper to the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). The reference number of the paper is 2017-01-1412 and can be found here.

The SAE writes many of the standards for the automotive world and is a leading publisher of research papers.

It has been a long process of peer reviews but at the start of next month I am delighted to say I am presenting my research at the SAE’s World Congress Experience (WCX) ( ) in Detroit, the home of the US automotive industry.



WCX17 will see 12000 of the automotive industries innovators gather to exchange ideas over three days.

There are hundreds of technical lectures and suppliers presenting the latest in automotive technology. It really is the place to see where what the automotive technology in the next 5 years will look like.

If anyone is going to WCX17 please come and say hello. Its a long way to travel but I really am looking forward to meeting everyone.
