Functional Automotive Exteriors With Printed/Flexible Electronics

Functional Automotive Exteriors With Printed/Flexible Electronics

While vehicle interiors might be an obvious target for emerging technologies based on printed/flexible electronics, there are also plenty of opportunities for vehicle exteriors. These range from transparent heaters to solar panels, and benefit from attributes as varied as transparency, conformality, low weight, and tunable absorption spectra.

'Founding Father' of Lithium Ion Batteries Helps Solve 40 Year Problem

'Founding Father' of Lithium Ion Batteries Helps Solve 40 Year Problem

In the late 1970s, M. Stanley Whittingham was the first to describe the concept of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, an achievement for which he would share the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Yet even he couldn't have anticipated the complex materials science challenges that would arise as these batteries came to power the world's portable electronics.

800V Cars, to be or not to be?

800V Cars, to be or not to be?

As the automotive industry moves further into the electric era, a new platform is emerging - 800V - with nine automakers already committed. It is generating hype by having the potential to enable 350kW (ten-minute) charging, breaking down the ultimate barrier for the consumer. But is it worth it? In this premium article, IDTechEx analysts analyse the challenges and benefits from a battery and system perspective.

Algorithm Flies Drones Faster Than Human Racing Pilots

To be useful, drones need to be quick. Because of their limited battery life they must complete whatever task they have - searching for survivors on a disaster site, inspecting a building, delivering cargo - in the shortest possible time.

Mines Transition to Electricity Earners

Mines Transition to Electricity Earners

Mines increasingly use solar power so they increasingly need energy storage for hours, due to load-source mismatch, up to seasonal because solar is feeble in winter. This can transition to battery-free energy storage intimately using mine assets for grids and local industry and communities when the mine is expired as a source of minerals. This is what we cover in this article, ending with a slide on how the same applies for electricity generators.
