Tamper-proof charging stations: As part of the project “SecMobil,” engineers at the Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) and partners have developed a security sensor for charging stations. According to researchers, in a single chip the charging currents are measured, manipulations of the charging station are uncovered and all data is encrypted before it is sent for settlement to the operator.

Autonomous EVs: Together, the Bar-Ilan University in Israel and U.S.-based company Electric Vehicle Evolution (EVE) want to develop driverless electric cars. The technology in question is currently used for football paying robots and will be tweaked to fit the needs of EVE’s electric cars.
New testing centre for battery technology: The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in the state of New York opened its Battery Prototyping Centre. Scientists and start-ups will have access to the centre to test new battery technologies i.e. for electric vehicles.
Mahindra Reva goes driverless: The Indian electric-carmaker has filed for permission with the British and Singapore government to test autonomous electric vehicles in the respective countries. The company is certain that its technology will be ready for testing on the open road in three to four years.
