Current Lithium-ion batteries rely on the flow of ions through a liquid electrolyte between two electrodes; however, cells incorporating a liquid electrolyte are prone to problems, including low charge retention, reduced efficiency when operating at high and low temperature and susceptibility to thermal runaway.
About 1.25 million people die each year as a result of road traffic accidents. Even more disturbing is the finding that road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death among young people, aged 15–29 years – people in the prime of their life.
The big challenge for the industry is to ensure that the software that runs on self-driving cars, the code that allows vehicles to communicate with each other, pedestrians, cyclists and roadside infrastructure, does what it is supposed to do. Automakers, legislators and, society as a whole, are demanding that these systems deliver high integrity.
This new AI sophistication has led to a natural cohesiveness between AI and autonomous driving. For years the prevailing wisdom was that Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) would gradually evolve into self-driving capabilities, but the industry has found that innovation at this level is limited. In order to proceed to a truly self-driving world, vehicles must do more than operate independently - they must be able to think and reason much like the human mind can do.
For more than a century, motor vehicle suspension systems have been associated with ride and handling, but the rapid deployment of electric and hybrid cars has added a whole new dimension: To overcome EV customers’ range anxiety, engineers are turning to “regeneration” of energy.
Earlier this year NACE International released the International Measures of Prevention, Application and Economics of Corrosion Technology (IMPACT) study. It estimates that the global cost of corrosion is $ 2.5 trillion, roughly 3.4 % of global GDP.

Oslo’s fashionable Tøyen’s district is as much a symbol of Norway’s proud cultural past as it is the country’s pioneering future. Located in the center of the capital city, Tøyen, which means ‘fertilized meadow’ it has always been a hotbed of creativity and learning. It is home to the botanical gardens, the paleontological, geological and zoological museums. Tøyen, however, is best known for the Munch Musett, a world-famous art gallery showcasing all of the late Edvard Munch’s 1,100 paintings, including his most famous composition ‘The Scream.’
