Consumer reluctance and electric vehicle uptake

Consumer reluctance and electric vehicle uptake
Power resistor manufacturer, Cressall has produced an infographic that explains the reasons why consumers are sceptical about electric vehicles, and how the industry should respond to this reluctance. By supporting design engineers to increase their understanding of consumer concerns, Cressall hopes the industry will be able to overcome many of the challenges it faces.

Electrifying vehicle technologies in the modern age

Electrifying vehicle technologies in the modern age
Despite appearing to be a modern phenomenon, the first electric vehicle took to the road in 1832 and in 1899, outselling all other available options, including steam and gasoline powered vehicles. Since 1935, with the invention of the internal combustion engines, gasoline-powered vehicles have become the popular choice. This changed in 2016, which saw a record in the sale of electric vehicles worldwide, with 750,000 cars sold.

Drivers choose 'green' power for their EVs

Drivers choose 'green' power for their EVs
Two-thirds of all German motorists can imagine buying an electric car. This is the result of a representative survey conducted by Statista on behalf of Infineon Technologies. Younger drivers are more open to e-cars, and are now boosting e-mobility. In the age group between 18 and 39 years, the approval rate for e-mobility is almost 80%. In the age group of the 60 to 69-year-old, however, only around 50% approve.

Project to develop battery cells for niche EVs

Project to develop battery cells for niche EVs
The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) is working in a collaboration, funded under the Government’s Faraday Challenge initiative, to develop UK-made battery cells for niche electric vehicles. The project aims to design and deliver a range of battery cells to suit suppliers’ individual technical challenges for a range of niche vehicles including buses, emergency vehicles and marine craft amid amplifying demand for environmentally-friendlier transport.

Taking charge of electric vehicles

Taking charge of electric vehicles
A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) requires a power electronic system between the power grid and the high-voltage battery pack located inside the vehicle. This electronic system is split into two parts: a charging station, which is also called electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE) or an off-board charger, and an onboard charger inside the vehicle.

Piezoelectrics key to IoT and power from roads?

Piezoelectrics key to IoT and power from roads?
California and Europe are pumping millions into development of electricity-generating roads using piezoelectrics. Piezos will also be useful in self-powered IoT nodes because no one will change or even charge millions of batteries for those nodes let alone the envisaged billions. Without self-powered nodes, the IoT will be nothing more than a footnote in history.

Optimising powertrains for autonomous vehicles

Optimising powertrains for autonomous vehicles
Drive System Design (DSD) will present two technical papers addressing the challenges faced in the optimisation of EV powertrains at the 17th CTI Symposium in Berlin from 3rd-6th December. Both exhibit a systems engineering approach developed by DSD to optimise the complete powertrain and its cost. The first demonstrates the benefits of using the approach to identify opportunities for lowering the initial investment cost associated with battery technology in the commercial vehicle market.
