Quickly removing heat and mitigating the damage from excessive heat has been a primary concern for motor vehicle designers since the internal combustion engine was first used. As engines got more powerful and were enclosed in compartments, reducing heat became more critical. Of course, as vehicles became more complex and accessories were added,

According to many experts in the field of generational wireless, the coming fifth generation (5G) major upgrade will create the actual Internet of Things, a concept of connected machinery that heretofore has been a scattered collection rather than a cohesive system. Cars (and larger vehicles) are quickly becoming stand-alone computer servers, but

It appears that European regulators’ dreams of eliminating carbon-based fuels in transportation is closer than ever, but each time this happened in the past, problems arose to stand in the way. As each step in emissions byproduct reduction has unfolded over the last 25 years, roadblocks got more difficult. Battery technology did not progress as

Safety concerns for automotive systems took a giant leap forward with the advent of the airbag and anti-lock brakes, and continued through the electronic revolution with better security systems and warning lights signaling internal problems. Now, computer software and hardware have taken over nearly all safety/security/operating functions, making

The latest regulations for reducing emissions and raising gas mileage have again put car designers into a race to reduce, reduce, and reduce. Engines and power potential are out front in design centers, with research dollars going to miniaturization of turbochargers and overall engine displacement. One major focus is downsizing the internal......Full Article »
