Onboard Diagnostics and Measurement in the Automotive Industry, Shipbuilding and Aircraft Construction, published by SAE International, offers readers a report on the recent developments on the determination of emissions and the estimation of concentration of pollutants in the exhaust pipe, using technologies such as intelligent microcontrollers, microsensors, and microactuators systems on board. The book, which is written by Michael Palocz-Andresen, is useful in understanding how the European Union and the United States address the problem of transport-generated emissions. The information goes beyond the more common emissions issues encountered in the automotive arena (including light-duty and heavy commercial vehicles), to expand upon the upcoming and similar concerns derived from air and sea transport. The book is suitable for those studying or working in the areas of transportation technology, sustainability, legislation, environment, and climate protection.

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a new oxygen "sponge" that can easily absorb or shed oxygen atoms at low temperatures. Materials with these novel characteristics would be useful in devices such as rechargeable batteries, sensors, gas converters, and fuel cells.

A European Union-funded collaborative research project designed to convert exhaust waste heat into onboard electricity via is moving into the prototype stage, according to Ricardo. The company, a partner in the project (called PowerDriver), reported that recently completed simulation work on a potential automotive application of the thermo-electric generator technology (TGEN) indicates a possible output of 300 W and equivalent fuel savings over the NEDC drive cycle of 2.5%.
