The future of electric commercial vehicles

The future of electric commercial vehicles
With Dyson recently announcing their surprise move into the electric vehicle market, it is clear the boom of electric cars is upon us. However, the technology behind these vehicles must continue to be refined to perfect the use for alternative applications, including commercial vehicles. Simone Bruckner, Director of Cressall, explains how energy captured through regenerative braking can be used effectively in commercial vehicles.

Vehicle-to-grid plan lets drivers return electricity

Vehicle-to-grid plan lets drivers return electricity
In the connected car sector, the 'V2' prefix is familiar shorthand, referring to technology that links vehicles to various other properties. These commonly centre around over-the-air connections enabled by telematics technology. Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) tech allows cars to 'speak' to one another, which can mitigate the risk of collisions and establish safer, more efficient traffic patterns. Vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) enables cars to connect directly to systems like traffic lights or toll booths to ensure that they are safely and effectively navigating the roads.
