New methodology for defining turbulent flows

The effect of turbulent flows is obvious. As yet, these have not been scientifically defined and remains one of the biggest unsolved problems in science. A global team of leading physicists now wants to resolve this dilemma with a new methodology. Turbulent flows are...

Autonomous bus in Birmingham maneuvers around genuine road obstacles – including a cyclist

The UK’s first full-size autonomous bus maneuvered around real-life road features including a cyclist on its first public demonstration, last week in Birmingham. The vehicle, which uses sensors including radar, lasers, cameras and ultrasound to detect its...

E-car batteries as much as ten percent smaller

Valmet Automotive has introduced a battery management system (BMS) based on single-cell monitoring. It not only sends the individual cell data wirelessly to the BMS. It creates the data basis for the optimization of resource handling. It also creates the...

Start-up of The Day: Fast-charging of electric cars anywhere, powered by kinetic energy

It is not always easy to find a charging station for your electric car. And once you have found one, charging the battery generally takes more than 30 minutes. Even several hours if you charge at home. The Israeli start-up Chakratec shows us that there is another...

Silicon carbide to move e-cars into the fast lane

Researchers have been looking into silicon carbide, a promising alternative material for the semiconductor industry, for several years now. The Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration IZM joined forces with partners in the SiC Module project to ramp...

Autonomous vehicles could reduce collisions by 22%

A study by TRL (The Future of Transport) considered the scenario of traditional and autonomous vehicles coexisting, and revealed that 22% of collisions could be avoided if we supposed that one of...

Israeli start-up REE “reinvents the wheel”

At the IAA in Frankfurt, the Israeli start-up REE and its strategic partner Musashi Seimitsu, a global Japanese Tier 1 group, presented a revolutionary, new approach to electric vehicles. The design...
