Zyvex Technologies announces the Zyvex Nanotube Technology, a polymer-modified carbon nanotube additive for a range of host matrices including epoxies, elastomers, thermoplastics, rubber blends, and more.
Near field communication appears poised to expand beyond cell phones to automotive applications. Chipmakers are unveiling devices that will form the basis of systems that will help pair phones, personalize settings and unlock doors.
Applus IDIADA listened to customer feedback in developing its new DynaWheel-III device, focusing on making the system even more reliable and easy-to-use. The wheel position measurement system is composed of two separate parts: the mechanical arms with six absolute optical encoders and the new electronic box (DW-Box), providing real-time calculation of wheel position.
Developed in partnership with IBM and location cloud company HERE, Continental’s latest evolution of its eHorizon software uses digital mapping and cloud-based data analytics to give drivers real-time information on dynamic events such as weather, accidents, and traffic jams.
The new generation of dual-clutch transmissions, called the xDCT family, is claimed to offer reduced transmission mass, lower complexity/cost, improved fuel consuption, and better launch characteristics for front-drive vehicles.
Tightening vehicle efficiency and emissions regulations and increasing demand for onboard electrical power means that higher voltages, in the form of supplemental 48-volt subsystems, may soon be nearing production.
For its new 7-Mode transmission, AVL focused on key requirements for hybrid drivetrains including best-in-class fuel consumption in NEDC charge-sustaining mode and full drivetrain functionality with a depleted battery.
The QSF and QSB engines use filter-free, flow-through exhaust aftertreatment systems and a clean-combustion formula focused on fuel efficiency, providing a lower cost of operation and higher uptime availability as rental companies in particular transition their fleets to Tier 4 Final-compliant equipment.
