    () (Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana–Xochimilco)


The great majority of the research papers, related to the automotive sector, have mainly focused on the analysis of the mechanical nature of the vehicles and barely on the study of the electronic nature of the new vehicles. To raise the profound changes occurring in the last four decades, it is necessary to explain how the components and the electronic systems have transformed the nature of the automobiles. The aim of this paper is analyze the nature of the evolutionary processes involved in the transition from the car, as a complex system, to a complex adaptive system.
