SAE members and guests will have the opportunity to hear a presentation from key members of the Nissan Team surrounding the development of the 2021 Nissan Rogue.
When Nissan began designing the 2021 Rogue, its best-selling model in the industry’s largest segment, the company focused on delivering functionality, flexibility, technology, and safety aimed at simply making life easier.
The all-new Rogue has the most standard safety technologies in its class, and is the latest Nissan model to feature Nissan Safety Shield 360®, ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link, and an all-new Vehicle Motion Control system.
In addition to the technology and engineering of the all-new Rogue, Nissan’s manufacturing and engineering teams used the latest technologies to bring it to life. Nissan used enhanced applications of advanced manufacturing technology such as virtual reality and collaborative robots to build the vehicle.

Autonomy is about automating every movement, pulling out waste, making it more repeatable, like a factory. Our customers are seeing a step change in safety with autonomy and upwards of 30% improvement in productivity. We’ll talk about how our customers have been able to deliver those results using Caterpillar Command for Hauling. We will explore the history of Caterpillar autonomy journey, highlight demonstrated results from our customers and talk about the mine of the future where we believe that someday the complete mining process could be automated — from drilling and digging, to loading, hauling, processing and transporting mined materials. We envision an operation where most of the equipment could be autonomous, which will result in the safest, most efficient mine sites in the world.
A link to the Zoom meeting will be provided upon registration.
SAE Chicago Section will provide a certificate for 1 PDH hour to attendees from SAE and qualifying organizations (IEEE/ASME). PDH credit may be requested via the registration process or by sending and email to email@example.com.

Speaker: Milt Schornack President and CEO, Center for Automotive Research TBD Location TBD
6:00 PM Sociial Hour 7:00 PM Dinner 8:00 PM Program
Milt Schornack, one of Detroit’s top mechanics in the 1960s, who pioneered the Ram Air system and, as a tuner and driver, became the face of Pontiac’s legendary GTO. Motor City Muscle has been responsible for the powerplant in the “new” 1966 Pontiac GTO that Milt has put together. 1966 was a good year for Milt and the Royal Team. The ’66’ finished the year winning its class at the Super Stock Nationals at York, PA. Perhaps one of the most famous Royal Bobcats was this Grenadier Red 1964, built on November 2,1963, and eventually shipped to Royal on November 8. What happened to the car during that six-day period is open for conjecture; however, it most likely spent a few days next door at the Pontiac Engineering garage before finding its way to Royal Oak. Equipped with the 348 hp Tri-Power and four-speed transmission, the GTO was given the “Royal Treatment” with the assistance of Milt and then delivered with an identical GTO painted blue over to Car and Driver magazine. Car and Driver wrung both cars out at Daytona, rigorously testing both cars.
The Royal Bobcat GTOs accelerated from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds and turned the quarter mile in the low-thirteens. Car and Driver made no bones that the cars were tweaked by Royal, and pronounced the Pontiac GTO to be the equal of its Ferrari namesake in its March 1964 issue, which elicited howls of protest from the magazine’s European-oriented readers, but provided Pontiac with reams of copy and great PR. It was after the Car and Driver test that GTO sales went ballistic.

As electrification creeps into the realm of performance vehicles, a new Detroit-area supplier is preparing for low-volume production of batteries for the segment.
American Battery Solutions, formed in late May, plans to design, integrate, test, validate and assemble battery packs using cells from other battery manufacturing companies, said Subhash Dhar, the company’s founder and CEO.
