作为汽车从业者,你所做的工作在汽车行业或汽车制造中起到怎样的作用?

我是一名感知质量工程师,用业内专业术语来讲就是做PQ的,这里的PQ是Perceived Quality或者Perceptual Quality的缩写,意思为静态感知质量。这份工作属于汽车行业中较为新兴的一个工种,怎么理解这份工作呢?举个例子,在如今这个快节奏、高压的生活状态下,每个人的身体或多或少都有些“小毛病”,这些“小毛病”往往会让人觉得不舒适,但这些毛病往往又不会影响正常的生活,为了改善人的精、气、神,我们就需要看一下中医调理一下自身的状态。而感知质量工程师就相当于这里提到的这个中医,通过望、闻、问、切去诊断整车的精、气、神,并且对症下药及时调理。— 感知质量的产生背景及定…

蔚来汽车与 Mobileye 达成战略合作,打造 L4 级别自动驾驶车型,你怎么看?

无人车工程师不请自来。作为国内最早一批与Mobileye接触的工程师,我来回答一下这题。先说结论,我认为蔚来和Mobileye合作造L4级别自动驾驶汽车,大概率是能成的。不过这个“大概率”是取决于Mobileye,而不是蔚来。为什么这么说呢?我们先来看看Mobileye官方发布的战略合作PR原稿:Under the planned collaboration, Mobileye will provide NIO with the design of the self-driving system building on the Mobileye AV Series, a L4 AV kit c…

【地球演义】百兽图5:胜穷奇

在大约2.73亿年前,也就是早二叠世到中二叠世的分界附近,似乎发生了一场小规模的灭绝事件——奥尔森灭绝(Olson's Extinction)。直接结果就是盘龙目的王朝戛然而止,兽孔目一跃而起成为泛古大陆的统治者。关于这轮王朝交替的化石证据极其稀少,所以研究者也把这段空白称为奥尔森空缺(Olson's Gap),这也是合弓纲演化史上的一个著名谜团。奥尔森空缺发生时间,以及陆生四组动物类型对比。图片来源自[1]。奥尔森空缺之后的兽孔类,巴莫鳄亚目(参加上回)打头阵,然后恐头兽亚目(Dinocephalia)强势崛起,合弓纲进入全面繁盛的黄金时代。恐头兽类主要化石分布地。这类合弓兽在二叠纪中期极尽…
