Nodar: Untethered Stereo Camera With LiDAR-Like Performance
Stereo cameras have been used in the automotive industry before, with a handful of examples. But so far these have needed to be physically linked with rigid connections, locking the cameras in position so that they stay calibrated. Nodar brings a unique algorithm which dynamically calibrates the stereo system, negating the need for stiff connections between the camera and allowing much wider mountings and much more accurate distancing.

Microcars Are the Smaller, Greener Future of Urban Commuting
There is a need to scrap the "highway-centric" model of urban development and prioritize the ease and convenience of local trips. Most car trips are short trips carrying just one person. Most of the energy is wasted on carrying the vehicle's own weight.

Why Immersion Cooling Might Not be the Final Battery Cooling Solution
Battery thermal management is a critical component to an electric vehicles (EVs) operation. Cells need to be kept cool when under load from driving and charging or kept warm during cold ambient conditions. This enables more efficient operation of the batteries and improves safety.

Beyond Ionomers: Regulation Drives Demand for New Fuel Cell Membranes
Membrane materials are of fundamental importance for fuel cells. So significant, in fact, that they typically give their name to the fuel cell, as is the case for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells, with IDTechEx forecasting the market for ion-exchange membranes in PEM fuel cells to be worth over USD$1.1 billion by 2033.
