Lucid Cars, Edge Computing and Armin Fahnle

On this week's episode we take a look at Lucid cars. We discuss their viability, where they came from and take a wider look at the world of electrical vehicles. We also get into edge computing. We discuss some use cases, where edge computing stands with 5G networking on the way in, why it exists and what it's used for. We also chat with our colleague Armin Fahnle about his time with ATS and what led him there. Unfortunately due to a bit of a stretched internet connection the audio quality for our interview with Armin took a bit of a dip so it's been edited down. We look forward to round 2 with Armin at a future date! If you loved the podcast, or have any thoughts, be sure to leave us a review!
