    As far as passenger cars are concerned, the automotive industry is currently focusing on 100% battery-electric vehicles. Particularly for long distances, there are disadvantages to this, such as the high weight of the batteries or the long charging times. The mixed operation of batteries and fuel cells could be an interesting alternative. To this...

    Unsorted parts in containers, boxes full of bolts for example, are often an inhibiting factor when it comes to industrial automation. Frequently, this still means laborious manual work. But bin picking – where a robot picks up parts – has undergone significant development in recent years. Modern technologies are lowering the barriers to entry into...

    The fully autonomous passenger car is still a long way off. However, driver assistance systems that can at least provide support are advancing at a rapid rate. Essentially, they are based on recognition of the vehicle's environment. Artificial intelligence helps ensure that they work reliably even in adverse weather conditions and if there is dirt...

    The question of when a component or subsystem will reach the end of its life cycle and be in danger of failing is even more critical in aerospace engineering than in other industries. It is true that more and more sensors are monitoring the loads and functionality of numerous components. However, this flood of data calls for modern software...

    With the networked, autonomous CityBot, not only has EDAG developed a self-driving vehicle for various different tasks in urban areas, but at the same time, has literally also put the design of the entire chassis on a new footing. The newly developed cornering modules are worthy of particular note. And in addition, a new type of rear axle has been...

    When designing components, conserving energy and material is now an obligation. Using computer-based simulation procedures makes it possible to configure the shape of a component for minimal material use – this is referred to as topology optimization. If there are errors in this process, then there will be failures in practical application, if the...

    The relevant part of an electric vehicle's energy flows in the high-voltage network: battery, drivetrain and regenerative brakes determine the distance that an electric car can actually cover on a single charge. Nevertheless, power consumers in the low-voltage network should not be forgotten. As EDAG shows, intelligent hardware and software...

    The local German Red Cross (DRK) association in Neuhof has a very special emergency vehicle: a Ford Ranger with a 30,000-euro drone in the rear body, an 80,000-lumen light mast on the roof and an adapted chassis for difficult terrain. Yet these are just the externally visible changes, in addition to the DRK livery and the customary flashing blue...

    What has long been permitted in Asia and Europe is now also coming to the USA: "Smart" headlights have only been permitted here for a few months. However, the responsible U.S. authority has special requirements for vehicle lighting, which are primarily intended to increase safety in road traffic. This is not a problem for the Light & Visibility...

    For every project, there are detailed product specifications setting out the task and objective. They also contain details from which the skills required can be derived. This enables project teams to be put together with great precision. The necessary information can be automatically extracted from the specifications using artificial intelligence.
