Peak Car Bringing Huge Opportunities

Peak Car Bringing Huge Opportunities

2030 will be the global 'tipping point' for sustainable mobility in the world's largest cities, according to Kantar's Mobility Futures study, confirming the IDTechEx study just before. Kantar predicts private car journeys in the world's largest cities decreasing 10% by 2030 due to the sharing economy, multi-modality, autonomous vehicles and ageing population.

Very Slow is Better: Mesh Networks, IOT to Drones

In engineering and science, the race for faster is well known. It spans from 5G streaming videos in seconds to Hyperloop and space tourism. However, if we are to have the envisaged tens of billions of Internet of Things nodes deployed, they must cost under two cents each and work on a whisper of electricity. No. We must go even further in redefining the problem.

Fuel Cell Vehicles Without a Crippling Fuel Supply Chain

What if we get rid of the hydrogen fuel supply chain? After all, fuel supply chains generally are yesterday's answer to society's problems. Here are some new ways through to that, maybe providing niche markets for fuel cell vehicles as we await better batteries. We refer to special boats, mining vehicles and trains.

Coronavirus to Particulates: Huge Market Opening Up for TAF

Coronavirus to Particulates: Huge Market Opening Up for TAF

It is well known that face masks do not protect you from bacteria and certainly not from the latest coronavirus. They stop you emitting as much when you sneeze. Beyond infection, there is increasing concern about fine particulates in the air, now proven to pass through your whole body. These are no longer seen as leading to only respiratory diseases and heart failure. Research now links them to depression, birth problems and more. How can we make more effective face masks and air filters generally?
