The driver's experience of being in a vehicle, but not driving, means opportunities for working or relaxing, as envisioned in a vehicle cabin concept from the world's largest supplier of automotive interiors.
GKN Driveline’s complete electric-drive system for plug-in hybrid vehicles will help automakers more easily incorporate eDrive systems into their vehicle lines and eliminates the integration of individual components from multiple suppliers.
The U.S. military recently announced that it has successfully tested a swarm of 103 autonomous Perdix micro-drones over the Naval Air Weapons Station at China Lake, CA. The drones operated as a group to complete four specific missions during the test sortie.
Mathematical modeling has demonstrated that a 12V machine on a small car could achieve over 60% of the energy recovery of a complex full hybrid system, obviating the need for an additional high-voltage battery pack, DC-DC converter and associated control systems.
An ultralight door architecture nets a 42.5% weight savings compared to a current production door, and that's enough to put this lightweight concept, developed via collaboration, in an enviable position.
Many autonomous driving plans call for deploying a handful of solid state Lidar sensors on each vehicle, but the Lidar modules used on today’s prototype vehicles are all mechanical systems with moving parts. That’s prompted huge interest in solid-state Lidar, with OEMs and suppliers racing to invest in non-mechanical technologies.
Delpi's new-generation gasoline direct-injection compression-ignition (GDCI) fueling system brings a new level of thermal efficiency for gasoline engines and is said to conquer earlier emissions challenges.
As automakers and the Trump Administration push back on 2025 CAFE standards, at the 2017 SAE High-Efficiency IC Engines Symposium, the EPA documents efficiency-related progress that's occurred under the regulations.
