Electric Vehicles: Everything is Changing

The event "Electric Vehicles: Everything is Changing" will showcase the advances made and planned by researchers and technology developers for land, water and air vehicles. This year we showcase the big new move to integration in place of components-in-a-box. Think:

  • Component powertrain integration
  • Structural electronics
  • Emerging energy storage technologies
Add new systems such as:
  • Sensor fusion
  • Multiple energy harvesting
  • In-wheel systems
  • Fast inductive charging

What to expect

Uniquely, this event looks at how everything will change in an electric vehicle. Disruptive new mechanical, electrical and electronic systems will arrive for an ever widening variety of electric vehicles. Winners penetrate more sectors. Innovation is benchmarked wherever it happens first. For instance, thermoelectrics and energy harvesting shock absorbers will soon appear first in many large vehicles - military to commercial.

Economy of scale with components and smart materials will be achieved by realising, for example, that e-cars will all drive themselves using the new sensor fusion. Bodywork of carbon fiber will become structural electronics storing energy, and incorporating printed wiring, embedded sensors and human interfaces - rich new pickings for chemicals and intermediate materials suppliers.

It is all here, with emphasis on the 15 year roadmap.

Feedback from past attendees:

I very much like your meetings, especially because you comprise exciting presentations from very different development fields in a single event.
