In celebration of Pratt & Miller Engineering’s multi-faceted expansion of Engineering Services and its new Grand River facility, Pratt & Miller will be hosting a Tech Tour and Panel Discussion. The Pratt & Miller Team is excited to open the lines of communication within the industry about; “How for decades, vehicle dynamics and its interaction with the driver have been key to selling vehicles. What will the future hold when the software is driving the vehicle?”

“We are looking forward to SAE members and guests getting a first-hand preview of the technologies our teams are working on” said Chris Andrews, Pratt & Miller’s Director of Automotive Business Development. “The topic for the panel discussion is something that we believe is of growing importance in the industry. Partnering with SAE Detroit Section on the discussion is a great step forward. We can start listening to each other on how we can best address the issue and begin learning and collaborating with each other.”

A Tech Tour of Pratt & Miller's Performance DNA, a vehicle dynamics simulator experience, and other interactive experiences will be available for guests prior to the panel discussion.

The new Pratt & Miller Engineering Services building is dedicated to the company’s growing advanced engineering services and technology products for Automotive, Commercial Truck, Power Sports, Mobility, and Aerospace markets.
