    tech insights

    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...

    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...

    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...

    As a general rule, EDAG's development activities center on passenger cars for regular road traffic. Occasionally, however, it is also a Lamborghini Hurácan GT3 EVO. Collaboration with the T3 Motorsport racing team is providing new findings in the fields of simulation and vehicle dynamics - and is also attracting graduates who see their future in...

    The electrification of the powertrain also has an effect on the brake system – many previously valid concepts and experiences are losing their validity. In order to meet the resulting requirements, not only innovative solutions, but also new methods and tools need to be developed, for simulation and testing processes for instance. EDAG has now...

    New forms of energy and drive are increasingly becoming the focus of mobility and infrastructure developers. EDAG is now bundling its competences in a new business unit: "Energy Systems and Drivetrain". Green electricity, e-mobility, hydrogen and fuel cells: these are the buzzwords on the way to new mobility and new, smart production methods. One...

    They weigh several tonnes. Skillfully steering them across the fields requires years of experience: without combine harvesters, agriculture would not exist in its current form. But can even huge vehicles like these be operated without a driver? Autonomous driving on public roads is still prohibited by law - but technologically possible. Adapting...

    Car lights – long underestimated – are developing into key players for the future of automobility. What might initially sound a bit far-fetched becomes clear as soon as it comes to communication between pedestrians and autonomous vehicles: "Has the self-driving car noticed me, and can I cross the road?" – this is the point at which lights become...
