That’s why I joined Aptiv last September. This company is not standing still. That drew me in. I saw that the company was already taking all the necessary steps to ensure it was relevant in a dynamic and changing industry. They’re focused on bringing safer, greener and more connected technology and solutions to the market.
I definitely believe in autonomous vehicles and how they can make us all safer. Aptiv is making sure that they're positioned to be a player in that field. They're designing products, they're investing in technology that’s bringing mobility to life. That's something I wanted to be involved in going forward.
I believe mobility is the future and is going to help people stay connected and independent. For one, my sons are always connected to their phones and I want them to be able to drive in a safe environment. I don't want them to be distracted, and I think mobility, autonomous driving addresses those concerns. I also have family and friends with disabilities. Their day to day revolves around when they can schedule a driver, a pickup, or somebody to take them or someone to a location, whether it be work, an appointment or event. Autonomous driving vehicles would be a huge change for their lifestyle, just download an app and the car would go where they need it to go.
I have been fortunate to sell a lot of great technology in my career from advanced brake systems to Bluetooth with voice recognition to active safety electronics. But I am most excited about the future of mobility. I see the future of autonomous vehicles. I don't believe my future grandkids will drive cars, because the technology for autonomous vehicles is here, and it's around the corner.
That is why I'm very passionate about what I sell and my work at Aptiv.
It’s a very personal thing. I know that when people get behind the wheel of a car, the technology we develop and sell at Aptiv allows them to drive from point A to point B in a safe way.
It’s our move.
