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.
Mentor Automotive's XSe ANC (active noise control) technology is a high-performance noise cancellation solution offering an enhanced audio experience in the vehicle. By carefully placing microphones and accelerometers inside the vehicle, synthesized signals from ANC generate anti-noise to create “quiet zones” for both driver and passenger.
A product of the joint venture between Dana Holding and Bosch Rexroth, the HVT R2 features a modular design that can be adapted for a variety of off-highway applications with net input power from 135 to 195 kW (180 to 260 hp),
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.
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.
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 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.
