Moby-PolimodelModular and therefore cheaper EVs is what the EU-funded project Moby has set out to achieve. The idea is that a series of modularly build electric vehicles use the same chassis, drivetrain and power supply. That way, pickups, vans and taxis could be produced for less than 10.000 euros.

Car stacking: A plan to vertically stack cars to eliminate wasted space in garages is awaiting green light in China. A mechanical system would transport cars to and from spaces, maximizing the number of parking spaces by packing up to 16 cars into a space where 2.5 vehicles would ordinarily fit. An app would help drivers locate, retrieve and even charge their car.

Smarter patrolling: Istanbul-based Ekin Technology has launched a smart patrol bike for speed enforcement and automatic number plate recognition. They have also created a solution that could be used on ordinary bikes.

Li-ion developments: Researchers at Kansas State University have developed a new high-performance Li-ion battery anode material. The self-standing material is made from combining silicon oxycarbide glass and graphene. The team hopes to explore production of lithium-ion battery fuel cells, and examine the use of 3D printing moving forward.
