Using neuroscience to stop phantom braking

Recently, when customers began complaining that their vehicles with driver-assistance technologies were “phantom braking” or slamming on the brakes without any visible obstacles present,...

Self-driving cars can make traffic slower

North Carolina State University A new study finds that “connected” vehicles, which share data with each other wirelessly, significantly improve travel time through intersections –...

A novel laser slicing technique for diamond semiconductors

The new technique uses laser pulses to slice diamond into thin wafers, paving the way for its adoption as a next-generation semiconductor material Chiba University Silicon-based...

Cracking in lithium-ion batteries speeds up electric vehicle charging

Cracks in predominant lithium-ion electrodes shorten battery lifespans, but a neuroscience-inspired technique shows that they have an upside Rather than being solely detrimental, cracks in...

Solar batteries: a new material makes it possible to simultaneously absorb light and store energy

University of Córdoba The collaborative effort between the University of Cordoba and the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research (Germany) is making progress on...

Aluminum materials show promising performance for safer, cheaper, more powerful batteries

Georgia Institute of Technology A good battery needs two things: high energy density to power devices, and stability, so it can be safely and reliably...

Dry manufacturing process offers path to cleaner, more affordable high-energy EV batteries

DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory The lithium-ion batteries used to power electric vehicles are key to a clean energy economy. But their electrodes are usually made...

Thermal cloak passively keeps electric vehicles cool in the summer and warm in the winter

When an electric vehicle is parked outside, its temperature can swing wildly from day to night and season to season, which can lead to...
