Self-flying electric cab: Airbus presents the Vahana concept, which it also calls a CityAirbus, designed by its A3 subsidiary in Silicon Valley. The copter cab, as we dub it, carries one passenger with no pilot needed and is powered by four electric motors at tilting wings that enable vertical take-off and landing. An airborne prototype is scheduled for the end of next year and a demonstrator shall land by 2020.
Microcontroller for EVs: Infineon’s Aurix microcontroller has been designed for electric vehicles and automated cars. They offer a high level of integration and real time performance, making them faster and safe. The MC are scalable up to 16Mbyte of flash and 6Mbyte of RAM.
Modern fuel cell testing: The fuel cell research centre HyCentA at TU Graz opened a new test infrastructure for fuel-cell systems together with AVL List GmbH. The 2.3m euro test stand allows dynamic operating modes and is open for automotive suppliers as well as fuel cell system producers.
Intelligent charging: A study by the University of California, Irvine concludes that smart charging PEVs minimises the scale of infrastructure needed. With smart charging the required power capacity drops to 16% (from 60%), while V2G could render non-vehicle energy storage systems unnecessary.
