The development of any branch of industry today is primarily based on the application of new technologies, which offer modern information and software solutions. Information and software technologies, which contribute to the improvement of the automotive and agricultural industries, primarily rely on the application of new technological developments for production, which should be maximally optimized and includes professional database management, enables production of better and more competitive products (“more for less” production), with application of new materials. Special emphasis is placed on sustainable development and the usage of renewable energy sources.
In the automotive industry, the present innovations are focused on optimizing the cost of car production, thanks, among other things, to the selection of new types of materials. The usage of new materials saves time and resources. The increase in the use of composite materials (a combination of at least two materials with a high adhesion capacity) puts car manufacturer’s efficiency above effectiveness. In this way, the automotive industry can use the composite, as a new material with the strength of two built-in materials in one, to develop the superior performance of its products. The development of the automotive industry is moving towards accepting the electric car as the next generation car. One of the reasons for this direction of development is the need to put the issue of social responsibility and respect for the environment in the first place, and in accordance with that, to switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. This step is a great challenge for engineers, when it comes to not only product design, but also finding a lightweight, durable material, the production of which reduces pollution.
The agricultural industry is moving in the direction of exploring the possibilities of more dynamic development of agricultural production. The possibilities of development of this branch of industry are reflected in polyvalent development, which includes the intensification of primary agricultural production and non-agricultural products, i.e., energy production from renewable sources and organic agriculture. Sustainable development of agriculture is one of the key tasks of all agricultural trends in the future, which will include environmental protection, development of infrastructure and telecommunications, development and improvement of renewable energy sources. In terms of the application of new information technologies, the development of the agricultural industry is directly related to digital integration, which eliminates technological interruptions, offers a developed communication structure and reduces the need for human intervention. New technologies, based on the application of modern computer technology, software solutions and integrated systems, can meet the set criteria in achieving quality food production and significantly better management of agricultural processes, because traditional techniques cannot meet today’s needs of the agricultural industry.
