Reducing energy consumption for e-cars - in small increments July 17, 2014 Reducing energy consumption for e-cars - in small increments During their final presentation in Vigo (Spain), the participants of the European research project OpEneR introduced driving strategies and driver assistant systems that are believed to significantly improve energy efficiency and safety of future generations of hybrid and battery electric vehicles. This ... Read more Smallest ultra-low power Android GPU solution targets wearables July 17, 2014 Smallest ultra-low power Android GPU solution targets wearables Imagination Technologies has introduced a PowerVR graphics processor IP core that provides the industry’s smallest ultra-low power Android compatible GPU solution that targets wearables, IoT and other small footprint embedded applications. Read more Bluetooth fights backs against Thread July 16, 2014 Bluetooth fights backs against Thread If you thought the Thread group would bring harmony to the Internet of Things, think again. Read more Theoretical model helps speed commercialization of lithium-ion batteries July 16, 2014 Theoretical model helps speed commercialization of lithium-ion batteries A theoretical model created at Rice University and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory that predicts how carbon components will perform as electrodes could help improve the performance of lithium-ion batteries. Read more Silicon sponge extends battery performance by 30 percent July 09, 2014 Silicon sponge extends battery performance by 30 percent Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) have developed a porous, sponge-like nanomaterial made of silicon that could help lithium-ion batteries run longer on a single charge by giving the batteries' electrodes the space they need to expand without breaking. Read more OPVs embedded in glass offer operating life benefits July 09, 2014 OPVs embedded in glass offer operating life benefits Researchers of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP in Potsdam, Germany, are working with an organic photovoltaics (OPVs) carrier material that extends operating life by using a flexible glass as a carrier substrate that better protects the components. Read more Surfer triples Li-ion battery performance with sandy solution July 09, 2014 Surfer triples Li-ion battery performance with sandy solution Sand has been used by researchers at the University of California, Riverside's Bourns College of Engineering to create a lithium ion battery that claims to outperform the industry standard by three times. Read more Researchers push atomic-scale circuitry for smaller, greener electronics July 08, 2014 Researchers push atomic-scale circuitry for smaller, greener electronics Technological shrinkage can only go so far when using traditional transistor-based integrated circuits. Consequently, in the drive to get small, Robert Wolkow and his lab at the University of Alberta are aiming to build entirely new technologies at the atomic scale. Read more Controller advance makes robots consume 40-percent less power July 08, 2014 Controller advance makes robots consume 40-percent less power A researcher at the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country has demonstrated that power consumption of robot joints could be reduced by 40% by modifying how digital controllers operate. Read more Inductive charging takes shape at BMW and Daimler July 08, 2014 Inductive charging takes shape at BMW and Daimler BMW has granted an insight to its development of inductive charging schemes for electric vehicles. In the medium term, the company plans to launch series production for the technology. The project is conducted along with competitor Daimler; both companies plan to provide a uniform charging technology ... Read more
