The advent of stop-start technology
As environmental concerns grow for R&D teams, OEMs look to bring the strategy further into the mainstream.
Recycling opportunities for hybrid/electric vehicle lithium-ion batteries
With limited reserves and strict environmental regulations, re-cyclers look to established extraction means to reuse, recycle, and dispose of the used batteries.
Cameras look to go the distance
Automakers seek vision systems with greater distances, improved reliability, and more functionality, thanks to ruggedized complementary metal-oxide semiconductor technologies.
Getting right with composites
With composites now a mainstay in most new aircraft de-signs, the engineering emphasis has switched from understanding if they work to thinking through the most efficient way to manufacture them, such as using design-for-manufacturing software.
Unmanned vehicles are a thing of the present for many off-highway applications, particularly in the agriculture and mining industries.
