Self-Driving Cars: A Complex Photonic Supply Chain

Ira Moskowitz, Innovation Institute at the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative

We tend to think of autonomous vehicles largely in terms of their technical challenges. But in a talk at the OSA Frontiers in Optics conference
in Washington, D.C., Ira Moskowitz, the director of advanced-manufacturing programs with the Innovation Institute at the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, USA, focused on another, less-well-known side of the challenge.

In addition to its formidable technical requirements, explained Moskowtiz, the self-driving-car revolution will create new and highly complex supply chains and new educational and workforce needs. Together, he suggested, those developments will present “huge challenges.” And that’s especially true for the photonic integrated circuits (PICs) that will drive some of the new vehicles’ core functionalities.
