Released Friday, 1st March 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode, Horace and Oliver discuss vehicle standards and classifications based on Horace's recent discussions with the Society of Automotive Engineers.

Specifically, we cover:
- what are automotive standards, why are they important, and how does this change how we look at the world?
- the history of the term 'microcomputing' and how the significance of this faded away over time, and what parallels we might be able to see with mobility.
- how is the SAE thinking about classifying micromobility vehicles, and what are the likely implications of this.
- what variables regulators should be thinking about when looking at vehicles, and which they should avoid (hint: speed)
- what value the German system for classifying low-powered electric vehicles could offer globally.
- the parallels to Horace's time at Nokia, and how he foresaw the rise of the battle of iOS and Android.
