Clean(er) Air Everywhere

Posted by John Day

John Day The research firm Strategy Analytics is out with a new study of the automotive sensor market and one of the key points they make is that “emerging markets are looking to reduce vehicle emissions and have plans to implement more stringent emission (including CO2) regulations.” More regulation creates more need for sensors to measure and help reduce vehicle emissions. The study, “Automotive Sensor Demand … Read More

John Day   Battery systems in cars are increasingly crucial not just for hybrid and electric vehicles but also to handle the fast-growing in-vehicle electronics workload. Building battery systems can get tricky. Testing technology specialist dSPACE observes that since automotive battery management systems (BMS) interact with several systems in a car, including its powertrain, energy management, vehicle … Read More

John Day Veterans of SAE World Congresses in decades past said the event held in Detroit last week was significantly smaller than it used to be – no big surprise – but the folks in charge said that was by design. Apparently, not everyone who wanted to exhibit was accepted, and SAE execs touted the innovative technology offered by those who made the cut. Small does have its advantages: less exhibit space left … Read More
