Even if you are in the field the technology is advancing by leaps and bounds such that it is almost impossible to remain current. The majority of the research is considered a company trade secret. This way the research is not published --

  Take for instance the General Motors Invisible Trailer project that has recently been made available for some pickups. This is an innovative idea that has probably caught the competition napping.  This really has nothing to do with engineering per se but more in the use of programming and display technology.
