Accelerating the production of lithium-ion cells

Accelerating the production of lithium-ion cells
Developers from Bosch and scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are using neutrons to analyse the filling of lithium ion batteries for hybrid cars with electrolytes. Their experiments show that electrodes are wetted twice as fast in a vacuum as under normal pressure. One of the most critical and time-consuming processes in battery production is the filling of lithium cells with electrolyte fluid following the placement the of electrodes in a battery cell.

Acoustic Vehicle Alert System for traffic safety

Acoustic Vehicle Alert System for traffic safety
The almost complete silence of the motors used in electric cars may pose a hazard to inattentive pedestrians. As a result, starting in summer 2019 all new electric and hybrid vehicles will have to be equipped with an acoustic warning system. Psychoacousticians at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are developing the corresponding sounds. It's supposed to sound similar to a vehicle – but not exactly the same as a diesel or gasoline-powered vehicle.

aCar: an electric car for Africa

aCar: an electric car for Africa
An electric car for Africa, custom-designed for the needs of the population there, that strengthens rural structures and helps drive the economy: Scientists at the TUM and partners have been working intensively towards this goal for four years. They present their new prototype to the public at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt from September 12 to 15, 2017. The aCar is designed for passenger and cargo transportation and is also interesting for the European automotive market.

Pedelec: a mobile electric motor for bicycles

Pedelec: a mobile electric motor for bicycles
Engineers at TUMCREATE in Singapore have developed an electric motor which can be easily attached to almost any bicycle, turning it into a pedelec (pedal electric cycle). The drive device is so light that it can be taken along easily before and after use. The TUMCREATE researchers have already tested an initial prototype of their product, which they've dubbed "ease". Commuting to work by bike is particularly common in major cities.
