Within a year, secure and accurate laser communication between airplanes and satellites will be possible. This is thanks to a pan-European project called UltraAir.
A number of Dutch airports are going to jointly research regular scheduled flights with electric aircraft within the Netherlands and Europe as a way to connect regions.
City trips and business trips across Europe, island hopping in the Dutch Antilles or just the daily commute to work, it will all be possible in the future with electric aviation.
A report by Deloitte outlines the feasibility of battery and hydrogen powered aviation as leading way to become climate neutral by 2050.
Scientists from three Fraunhofer institutes have worked out a radar sensor system that can use AI to interpret entire traffic scenarios and warn autonomous vehicles of dangers.
The 'massless' battery is designed to be not only a source of energy but also a solid structural material. The electrical components are cleverly incorporated into the other materials.
Mercedes-Benz drivers may not know it, but thanks to their onboard communication system, they provide valuable information to road authorities about the slippery conditions of roads.
The company can retroactively convert any regular vehicle into an electric one and is aiming to tackle Kenyan public transport next.
The traffic jams and full trains will probably return. But now that we have all learned that things can easily be done in a much smarter way, we, as a society, should stop thinking that's a bad thing.
A research team at TU Munich has developed a new early warning system for autonomous vehicles that uses AI to learn and warn of situations that require driver intervention.
Autonomous drones are now delivering Samsung products in Ireland via the start-up, Manna. The partnership is the first of its kind.
Solar cars are on the verge of a breakthrough. Such is the conclusion of a research report on solar energy in the automotive industry.
In Hamburg, scientists are working on an overall concept for the aviation of the future to provide a cost-effective and efficient supply of hydrogen to the Airbus site.
Each week, we follow up on a well-read story in this section. This week: will we get a clean combustion engine that runs on gas?
The spin off from TNO, LionVolt BV, has promised a 3D solid-state thin film battery that is lighter, safer and more efficient than current lithium batteries.
A hybrid airplane (electric-biofuel) that is both a city hopper and a cargo plane is the new kid on the block of emission-free aviation.
At TU Berlin, researchers are developing AI possibilities for the mobility of the future based on platform economics and are allowing AI applications in autonomous mobility to be experienced.
Soon, we will no longer refine fuel from crude oil but produce it from clean electricity in places where enough cheap clean energy can be generated.
Fraunhofer IZM researchers have developed 3D radar modules for autonomous driving vehicles that enable 360° all-round vision when integrated into a sensor network
