Concept vehicle brings steer-by-wire to sports car study October 07, 2014 Concept vehicle brings steer-by-wire to sports car study Steer-by-wire, once hyped as a technology that opens up unseen degrees of design freedom due to the disappearance of the steering column and then sunk, is not completely dead: In the SpeedE research vehicle of the RWTH Aachen university, it lives on. And proves that it can be just as save as the conventional ... Read more Infineon's secret weapon: Dresden Fab, 48V car battery September 26, 2014 Infineon's secret weapon: Dresden Fab, 48V car battery Talk to any automotive chip companies these days. Be it Infineon Technologies, Freescale, STMicroelectronics or NXP Semiconductors. They all share one common goal: Go get Renesas and grab major design-wins from leading Japanese carmakers, such as Toyota Motors. Read more Safety package protects small electric vehicles September 26, 2014 Safety package protects small electric vehicles Efficient subcompact vehicles with electric propulsion are regarded as a valid option in making electromobility more popular. However, vehicles of the "Quad class" (official term: L7E) currently only offer an insufficient safety level. Researchers from the Visio.M consortium now have demonstrated that ... Read more Tire sensor for industrial trucks solves a burning problem September 25, 2014 Tire sensor for industrial trucks solves a burning problem Tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) are state of the art in tires for cars and trucks. But how about tires for industrial material handling vehicles? A research project of the Hannover university is currently developing a sensor system that enables operators to monitor the conditions of such tires. ... Read more LTE successfully tested in V2X scenario September 24, 2014 LTE successfully tested in V2X scenario 4G mobile radio technology, also known as LTE, meets the tough real-time requirements to be deployed in Vehicle-to-X communications applications. This broadens the spectrum of available wireless technologies suited for V2X - and could be an enabler for innovative applications. Read more Autosar reference integration already contains future features September 24, 2014 Autosar reference integration already contains future features For a reference integration of BMW's “BAC4 Release 2” Autosar Core, software vendor Vector Informatik provides its Autosar basic software implementation 'Microsar' to BMW. It already contains the new functions to be released in Autosar release 4.2.1, due in autumn 2014. The focus is on internal vehicle ... Read more Centralised architecture: Apps as driver assistant systems September 23, 2014 Centralised architecture: Apps as driver assistant systems An innovative approach from Siemens provides for a centralised, powerful computing resource in vehicles, replacing dozens of ECUs and control units distributed over the car. The benefit: Essential functions such as driver assistance systems could be implemented as an app and installed flexibly. Plus, ... Read more Structural electronics - the next big thing in smart cars? September 18, 2014 Structural electronics - the next big thing in smart cars? Electronic circuits embedded in vehicles, aircraft and more have the potential to be a $60 billion market by 2025, says technology market research company IDTechEx. And when they say embedded, they mean really embedded: In the structure of a vehicle's body or an airplane's wing. Read more Is rapid charging batteries really so damaging? September 15, 2014 Is rapid charging batteries really so damaging? Researchers from Stanford University and the Stanford Institute for Materials & Energy Sciences at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have produced results which challenge the prevailing view that 'supercharging' batteries is harder on battery electrodes than charging at slower rates. Read more Lithium ion batteries: new materials multiply charging capability September 12, 2014 Lithium ion batteries: new materials multiply charging capability New materials and a number of detail improvements - that's all it takes to multiply safety and operating life expectancy of lithium ion batteries used to drive electric vehicles. Researchers from German electrical giant Siemens this week introduced a demonstrator of a battery that quadruples the number ... Read more
