Toyota and its subsidiary, Woven Planet Holdings, Inc., have developed a working prototype of its portable hydrogen cartridge. This cartridge design will facilitate the everyday transport and supply of hydrogen energy to power a broad range of daily life applications in and outside of the home. Toyota and Woven Planet will conduct Proof of Concept trials in various places, including Woven City, a human-centered smart city of the future currently being constructed in Susono City.
Symbio, a Faurecia and Michelin hydrogen company, and Schaeffler Group, to establish Innoplate, a global joint venture (JV) to produce fuel cell bipolar plates (BPP), a strategic fuel cell component. JV and first plant to be located in Haguenau, France, with JV targeting to produce c.50 million bipolar plates and employ more than 120 people by 2030.
The dual mass flywheel dampens torsional vibrations and thus allows the engine to run efficiently at significantly lower speeds than is possible with a conventional flywheel. This reduces fuel consumption. When replacing the DMF, garages should explain to customers that for optimal performance their vehicle's drivetrain relies on this damping function.
Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation today announced that it has developed a superconducting motor to meet the needs of the mobility sector. This superconducting motor can realize lightweight, high-output density and high-speed rotation, and can be made available for large mobility applications.
Modern vehicles have a large number of electronic systems that are networked with each other. Since these systems are at risk from cyber attacks, Fraunhofer IPMS developed a CANsec IP core that makes vehicle systems more secure. The IP core is already being evaluated in a demonstration by partner Renesas Electronics Corporation, a leading semiconductor company that delivers embedded processors together with analog and power products.
Webasto’s business in the field of electromobility solutions – especially battery systems – is growing more successful by the day. The supplier is exhibiting its product portfolio at the Battery Show Europe in Stuttgart.
FEV and ProLogium Technology, a leader in solid-state batteries, signed a MOU to cooperate in the development of solid-state battery systems. Both parties are leveraging their expertise to jointly develop energy storage systems based on ProLogium’s unique solid-state batteries (SSBs) technology.
