Structural composites as batteries & supercapacitors

Structural composites as batteries & supercapacitors

A key trend across many sectors is the multifunctionality of structural parts. This has extended to fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite material and the added functionality ranges to: enhanced electrical & thermal conductivity, embedded sensors & actuators, energy storage & harvesting, data transmission, self-healing, and adaptive response (morphing) mechanisms.

Research helps make buses smarter

Research helps make buses smarter

A rather unusual trolleybus has been navigating the streets of Zurich in recent months. With its large windscreen and covered wheels, it could easily be mistaken for a tram. It ­features a hybrid electric drive system that allows it to draw power from an on-board traction battery as well as ­overhead wires. But this bus is also "smart", boasting specially designed software that automatically gathers information on the route.

Massless Energy: Structure Becomes Lighter

Massless Energy: Structure Becomes Lighter

This is a technological megatrend. Dumb load-bearing metal structures move to plastic and composite and incorporate energy harvesting and storage material - massless energy. Indeed you could call some of it negative mass energy. Goodbye components-in-a-box.

Toyota plans to recall 1 million hybrid vehicles

Toyota plans to recall 1 million hybrid vehicles

Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2016-2018 model year Toyota Prius vehicles. The subject vehicles have an engine wire harness which is connected to the hybrid vehicle Power Control Unit. A portion of the wire harness could contact the cover at this connection and wear over time, causing an electrical short circuit, which can generate heat. If sufficient heat is generated, there is an increased risk of a vehicle fire.
