The new IDTechEx report, Electrically Active Smart Glass and Windows 2018-2028 observes that electrically active see-through glass is an idea whose time has come.
Safety, range and costs: these are the three big premises of electromobility. Safety definitely comes first. Lithium-based traction batteries are usually completely enclosed in the battery case and integrated in the vehicle to protect the battery from all conceivable stresses and external influences. This "armour" has an effect on construction, weight, size and overall design of the vehicle.
SolarStratos is a commercial two-seater solar plane that aims to be the first manned solar plane penetrating the stratosphere.
You cannot get far today with electric cars. One reason is that the batteries require a lot of space. Scientists are stacking large cells on top of one another. This provides vehicles with more power. Initial tests in the laboratory have been positive. In the medium term, the project partners are striving to achieve a range of 1000 kilometers for electric vehicles.
The unique report Supercapacitor Materials 2017-2027 is a drill down from the IDTechEx overview, Supercapacitor Technologies and Markets 2016-2026. It is packed with detailed analysis, many new infograms, conference slides, roadmaps and a ten year forecasts 2017-2027.
On May 10-11 an estimated 3,000 people from over 40 countries will meet at the Estrel Convention Centre in Berlin to discuss the commercialization of a diverse range of emerging technologies.
Watch the preview of the IDTechEx Show! coming up in Berlin, 10-11 May 2017
From its facts based research, IDTechEx has what some regarded as over-optimistic forecasts for electric cars. However, others are now matching or exceeding our optimism.
E-TWOW, headquartered in Romania, has developed electric scooters they claim to be the first with regenerative braking.
Lithium-oxygen fuel cells boast energy density levels comparable to fossil fuels and are thus seen as a promising candidate for future transportation-related energy needs.
Not stuck on silicon 28 Apr | United States
A new technique developed by engineers may vastly reduce the overall cost of wafer technology and enable devices made from more exotic, higher-performing semiconductor materials than conventional silicon.
Aerial dogfighting began more than a century ago in the skies over Europe with propeller-driven fighter aircraft carried aloft on wings of fabric and wood. An event held recently in southern California could mark the beginning of a new chapter in this form of aerial combat.
This conference concerned petrol stations in the UK. They have collapsed in number from 35,948 in 1971 to a mere 8,434 today. The collapse would have been worse were it not for hypermarkets opening new stations.
The IDTechEx Show! in Berlin, Germany on 10-11 May is Europe's most important event for those involved in technology scouting and product innovation, bringing together emerging technologies with global brands.
Uber is looking beyond ground transportation and has announced that the company has partnered with ChargePoint to create rapid-charging stations for Uber's planned network of on-demand flying electric cars that will be capable of vertical take-off and landings.
Project Portal - a hydrogen fuel cell system designed for heavy duty truck use at the Port of Los Angeles.
This is one of the first times that bespoke fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles have been used at a volcano such as Fuego, where the lack of close access to the summit vent has prevented robust gas measurements.
IDTechEx Technology analyst Dr. Lorenzo Grande was at Battery Japan 2017 to listen to the 30+ talks by leading Japanese companies, as well as to attend the co-located exhibition.
The Automotive Research Association of India has tested Li-ion batteries developed by the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre and found them valid for commercialisation.
In order to get automated driving off the ground in China, a promising concept is still needed for how to generate high-precision, up-to-the-minute maps.
Redox flow batteries are an energy storage technology initially developed by NASA in the 70's for space applications. After several years of intensive R&D, in 2006, several key patents on the technology expired, opening up the arena to companies all around the world.
High performing lithium-ion batteries are a key component of laptops, smart phones, and electric vehicles. Currently, the anodes, or negative charged side of lithium ion batteries, are generally made with graphite or other carbon-based materials.
