SAIMechE John Orr Lecture 2014

The John Orr Lecture delivered by Dr Tom Gillespie Ph.D (world authority on vehicle dynamics) was most interesting and insightful. Tom is Director of Product Planning for the US-based Mechanical Simulation Corporation and Research Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan. His topic on: "A Look into the Future of Road Transport Vehicles" held the audience captive throughout the presentation. The webcast of the Lecture which includes the presentation slides can be viewed by clicking here

An article about Dr Gillespie's presentation as produced for Wits University is available here.
