Sales figures for electric vehicles (EVs) continue to increase. However, a future constraint for such sales may be the supply of batteries.
Daimler Truck AG is setting an important milestone on the way to series production of fuel cell systems. With the establishment of Daimler Truck Fuel Cell GmbH & Co. KG, the organizational and legal framework has now been created for bringing together all of the Group’s fuel cell activities.
Nabtesco brings battery production up to speed. The cycloid gears offer high precision, dynamic, and rigidity, enabling shorter cycle times, product quality, and higher production volumes.
A proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller is a control loop mechanism widely used in industrial control systems and other applications that require continuously modulated control.
Porsche takes over the business operations of the Rosenheim (Germany) technology start-up serva transport systems GmbH. As a supplier of driverless transport systems, serva supports companies in the automation of their logistics processes - with transport robots and intelligent software.
Automotive companies and Autonomous Vehicle (AV) firms alike have been hit hard by the corona pandemic as demand for vehicles has fallen markedly and the immediate future appears uncertain. Estimates vary for how soon enterprises working in these industries will move forward and what percentage will survive this dramatic commercial turbulence.
The International Suppliers Fair (IZB), an important communication and business platform for the mobility industry will not be held this year due to COVID-19 and has been postponed to October 2021.
In the world of autonomous vehicle (AV) technology companies, two radically different approaches to AV platform development are slowly emerging. Which concept is more recommendable?
The ESI Group, a specialist in the field of virtual prototyping software and services for manufacturing industries, helped the Chinese-American battery supplier Farasis Energy to win a call for tenders made by a premium German automotive OEM. Decisive was the reliability of the virtual prototype of the new Farasis battery model in a “zero real prototype” procedure, stipulating the elimination of any physical prototype.
Advanced driver-assist systems are among the most advanced technologies in mass-market cars today. Functions like adaptive cruise control and collision avoidance systems improve driver safety and convenience, and much of it uses radar. Here are practical applications for radar in vehicles.
Michelin and Symbio have joined forces as preferential partners of the MissionH24 programme. This project paves the way for the appearance of fuel cell electric prototypes competing in a bespoke class at Le Mans by 2024.
Internal combustion engines have been liquid-cooled for more than 100 years, and it’s well-known that heat is the number one enemy of an engine, threatening to destroy it by overheating. But electric motors operate under a different set of rules and heat isn’t as critical for the motor. So why do electric cars have cooling systems?
EDAG, an independent engineering company in the automotive industry, has been commissioned by CleanTec-Lighting GmbH (Leisnig) to produce an innovative air disinfection system. The patented system improves the air quality by means of integrated technology for continuous air purification, which is based on UV-C and eliminates all kinds of microorganisms and viruses.
The new Bosch SMI230 is a MEMS sensor that permanently and precisely registers changes in vehicle direction and speed. The sensor ensures reliable navigation of a vehicle, especially in the event of short-term GPS signal failures.
While trains in the UK are sufficiently modern, and service employs innovations like smart ticketing, passengers suffer from mobile connectivity performance that’s generally second-rate. For service suppliers, numerous upgrades must be carried out in order to deliver improved quality connections to consumers within a reasonable timeframe.
The digital upgrading of railways is bringing many benefits to rail operators in terms of operational efficiency, reliability, and safety. Most passenger experiences are improved as well. But along with these improvements comes exposure to hacking and cybersecurity threats.
