I am Willfred Lim, Electrical Engineer, BU ID RD Singapore. Instrumentation and Driver HMI (ID) is the largest business unit in Singapore R&D and the business unit has celebrated its 10th anniversary at the end of 2016.
To honor the 10 years of success in Continental ID Singapore, a group of colleagues from different departments came together in hope to make yet another moment to be remembered in the coming decades. Working together were Wang Jian, Alisa Pang, Yeap Ling Ling, Rudresh Hanumanthappa Basavarajappa, Kwan Yann Shi, Zhi Song and myself, Willfred Lim.
One of the highlights of the event was an ID video tribute. It has been an amazing experience approaching our ID pioneers to discover the history behind ID Singapore, especially when some of us are relatively new to ID. Personally, I had to browse through photographs collected over the years and gigabytes-worth of interviewing videos of our pioneers. Through their stories I gained insights to the automotive world.
I am also deeply moved and inspired by how our pioneers strived to achieve where they are today. From moving to a new location, achieving first project milestone, to our ever-growing strength. The ample opportunities and trust that Continental gave to the employees are definitely visible in these stories. In ID, we have strongly affirmed that with a common goal and efforts from everyone, we can conquer any challenges ahead.
It is with great honor that I’ve played a key role in commemorating ID’s 10th year success. This event would not have been possible, without the active participation from everyone. So, in the end, here is a picture with all the colleagues that contributed to this success.
