Oiling the way to greater EV efficiency

Lubricant performance may not appear to be a salient challenge for EV operation even when it comes to the development of world electric speed record achievements and on-track e-racecars; but it is, says Millers Oils' Technical Director, Martyn Mann.

First Italy-built Jeep has GM platform roots

The all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade uses Fiat's Small-Wide 4x4 architecture co-developed with Opel years ago. The vehicle will be sold in over 100 global markets with a variety of engines, transmissions, and drivelines. It also features a clever new roof system.

Mazda Hazumi B-segment concept previews Mazda2

Since the 2011 Mazda Minagi concept closely resembled the production CX-5 that followed, and the Takeri Concept that appeared at the Tokyo Motor Show that year gave rise to the Mazda6 production model, it is hardly surprising that the Hazumi concept revealed at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show was widely expected to pave the way for the production Mazda2 replacement.

In-sight software

Cognex Corp.’s In-Sight Explorer 4.9 software offers an expanded set of inspection tools and an enhanced Cognex Connect communications suite that features the iQ Sensor Solution network (iQSS).

Power MiniLEDs

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. offers a new series of power MiniLEDs in ultra-compact surface-mount device packages.

Book explores use of aerodynamics in cars, trucks, trains

SAE International’s “Theory and Applications of Aerodynamics for Ground Vehicles” provides an introduction to ground vehicle aerodynamics and methodically guides the reader through the various aspects of the subject.

Hot for Powertrain

With over 800 technical papers focused on powertrain, and three days of high-value expert discussions, the 2014 SAE World Congress is a must for anyone working to advance vehicle fuel efficiency and emissions reduction. And there’s a two-day advanced ICE symposium to kick it off.

Hard chrome process

The ANKOR Hydraulics hard chrome process from Enthone delivers corrosion resistance while offering a more sustainable alternative to other high-efficiency, etch-free hard chrome processes for hydraulics/fluid power applications.

Functional rapid prototype parts

Most rapid prototype parts are brittle or turn limp in warm water, and can only take engineers so far during development. Synergeering Group has developed a way for rapid prototype parts to be functional—on a running engine.

Architecture developed for monitoring and anomaly detection of space systems

Researchers at the University of Central Florida have found that by incorporating analysis and monitoring algorithms such as Inductive Monitoring System, neural networks, and recent advances in deep learning within the architecture’s signal processing system engineers have a flexible and powerful end-to-end data analysis and monitoring system for instrumented remote aerospace hardware.

Next steps for fuel cell technology

Systems costs are coming down while fueling infrastructure is going up in key regions. But is fuel cell technology ready to provide a truly viable alternative to advanced ICEs and hybrids?
