Real-time data hub for smart electromobility August 27, 2015 Real-time data hub for smart electromobility Intelligent mobility is requires that cars can share data – for example with other vehicles, with services providers, repair shops, fleet operators and, in the case of an electric car, with charging stations. As a result of the ELISE research project, the Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) has ... Read more Racing car technology reaches road freight vehicles August 26, 2015 Racing car technology reaches road freight vehicles Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS), in the automotive world developed to give race cars an additional boost, could possibly soon help long haul trucks and delivery trucks to burn less fuel and emit less exhaust gases. As a welcome side effect, the vehicles get additional agility.

Read more Smarter and lighter car battery aimed at replacing lead acid batteries August 14, 2015 Smarter and lighter car battery aimed at replacing lead acid batteries A new drop-in car battery replacement from Ohm Laboratories - called Ohm - is claimed to offer a smarter and lighter car battery for existing gas-engine vehicles. Read more Cars learn to deal with each other automatically August 06, 2015 Cars learn to deal with each other automatically Automated driving is water under the bridge – what’s hot today is cooperative driving. In the Ko-HAF project (cooperative automated driving), a number of OEMs and electronics suppliers try to find out how autonomous should interact with each other to achieve maximum traffic safety. Read more Elastomers can be turned into actuators August 05, 2015 Elastomers can be turned into actuators Wherever mechanical movements need to be damped, elastomers are an ideal material. But this group of synthetic material has more to offer: Under certain circumstances it can be made to actively deform. Thus, it can be used as actuator, researchers from Fraunhofer institute have found. Its properties ... Read more Shock absorber harvests energy from car's suspension August 04, 2015 Shock absorber harvests energy from car's suspension Researchers at Virginia Tech's College of Engineering (Blacksburg, VA) have developed a shock absorber system designed to harvest large-scale vibrational energy from a car's suspension. Read more Fraunhofer rolls security platform for cars August 03, 2015 Fraunhofer rolls security platform for cars Electronic control units in cars, in particular head units, recently have been the target of cyber attacks. Researchers from Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology have devised a platform enabling the development of secure head units based on open hardware and software standards. Read more
