With its European base and global presence, it would only make sense that Airbus would take a leading role in the EU’s CleanSky 2, a joint technology initiative that is the follow-up to the CleanSky aerospace research program.
The Model T261 series rotary transformer coupled torque sensors from SensorData Technologies meet the demanding in-line testing requirements of small motors, pumps, compressors, turbines, fans, and other fractional horsepower rated devices.
Volkswagen spreads its Audi A3 e-tron PHEV powertrain to the new Golf GTE. Powertrain control from ICE to electric drive is silky indeed, and EV range is worthy of a good city car. But system cost is significant in a VW-badged vehicle.
Tough Class A Ultra Lite from Continental Structural Plastics is a 1.2 specific-gravity sheet molding composite formulation that provides engineers the ability to design with a lower specific-gravity material without sacrificing mechanical properties, surface qualities, and adhesion requirements.
With its Connected eHorizon, Continental presented at IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hannover what it believes is one of the key elements on the way to fully automated vehicles. This “networked electronic horizon” uses navigation data more effectively by deploying crowdsourcing technology to extend the underlying topographic maps with information from the sensors of other road users.
