SAE World Congress 2012

The SAE World Congress 2012 took place on April 24-26, 2012 in Detroit, Michigan. This year’s theme was “Get Connected,” which highlighted the new and diverse connections that will drive significant advancements in the auto industry of tomorrow.  Not only did the theme symbolize literal connections, such as those between vehicles, infrastructure, the Internet, and the nation's electrical grid, but it also demonstrated the most fundamental of connections; the connections and relationships between engineers who are developing the next generation vehicle technology.

Once again, TRC Inc. exhibited a booth at the show. The staff is pictured from left to right:  Jeffrey Sprague, Samantha Wagoner, Milt Dunlop, and Paige Duff.
