Read more Breakthrough for traction batteries? Ultra-fast battery charges in 2 minutes October 17, 2014 Breakthrough for traction batteries? Ultra-fast battery charges in 2 minutes Range anxiety is still one of the most powerful inhibitors for widespread acceptance of electric vehicles. But if it would not take longer to recharge a battery than to fill a gasoline tank, this obstacle could fall. A research team from Singapore's Nanyang Technology University (NTU) could have the ... Read more Mono camera offers advanced object detection October 16, 2014 Mono camera offers advanced object detection Cameras for use in driver assistance systems are more than just an image sensor, combined with a basic data processing unit - they need to offer much more intelligence to offload the driver assistance. The S-Cam4 family that TRW Automotive has announced will go one step further: it will have an expanded ... Read more Single IC controls entire LED matrix headlight October 16, 2014 Single IC controls entire LED matrix headlight Adaptive matrix LED headlights are one of the innovations in the automotive industry that clearly improve driving safety and thus spread quickly across vendors. The obstacle to adopt them also in the more affordable vehicle classes lies in its cost, and in this context matrix drivers are a major cost ... Read more When the steering wheel is a computer October 16, 2014 When the steering wheel is a computer One of the most demanding disciplines in motor sports is, besides formula one, the World Endurance Championship (WEC) - a series of eight races of which the 24 hours of Le Mans probably are the best known. In this race, so-called Le Mans Prototypes compete against each other through driving skills, engine ... Read more Seat material impacts EV driving range, scientists say October 14, 2014 Seat material impacts EV driving range, scientists say Key to range improvements for electric vehicles is an intelligent energy management. A smart energy management scheme needs to take into account the impact of energy guzzlers like air conditioning and interior heating systems. A research project now examines the impact of car seats on energy efficiency. ... Read more Osram spotlights brightest LED for car headlights October 14, 2014 Osram spotlights brightest LED for car headlights Osram Opto Semiconductors will be showcasing at the Vision Congress in Paris (October 14 and 15, 2014) a LED for car headlights which has a luminance three times that of existing versions.
