These Pods Could Provide a Blueprint for Future Hydrogen Aircraft

These Pods Could Provide a Blueprint for Future Hydrogen Aircraft

It is unlike anything seen on today's runways: the "pod" configuration—one of several being conceptualised as part of ongoing R&D on the ZEROe concept aircraft—features a series of stand-alone propulsion systems based on hydrogen fuel cell technology. Today, Airbus is conducting studies to determine how scalable the "pod" configuration, among others, could be to large commercial aircraft.

Axial Flux Motors: Players & Applications

Axial Flux Motors: Players & Applications

The original invention of the electric motor by Faraday involved an axial flux permanent magnet motor, but ever since almost all permanent magnet traction motors have been radial flux. Now, the unique power & torque density advantages of axial flux, alongside more advanced manufacturing techniques, is leading them to make a comeback in certain electric vehicle markets.

Autonomous Multi-Drone Aerial Surveys of Antarctic Penguin Colonies

Autonomous Multi-Drone Aerial Surveys of Antarctic Penguin Colonies

Aerial surveys of penguin colonies have been conducted before, usually with helicopters or a single drone. The helicopter method produces great image quality but is expensive, fuel-inefficient and risks disturbing the birds. The single drone survey is time-consuming and - because the drones must be launched from a safe distance, about five kilometers from the colony - difficult to navigate.
