The Car of Tomorrow: Under the Hood

Autonomous vehicles get all the attention, but in the next several years, the experience of driving will change in many other ways. “Things are moving really fast,” says Anna Stefanopoulou, a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan. “Automotive technology hasn’t advanced this quickly since the era of the Model T.” At the

Printed Sensors Monitor Tire Wear in Real Time

Electrical engineers at Duke University have invented an inexpensive printed sensor that can monitor the tread of car tires in real time, warning drivers when the rubber meeting the road has grown dangerously thin. If adopted, the device will increase safety, improve vehicle performance and reduce fuel consumption. The group hopes that the tire wear

Argonne Releases GREET 2016 Fuel- and Vehicle-Cycle Models

The Argonne National Laboratory’s Systems Assessment Group announced 2016 release of the suite of GREET (Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Transportation Model) models and associated documentation. GREET is a full life-cycle model that allows researchers and analysts to evaluate various vehicle and fuel combinations on a full fuel-cycle/vehicle-cycle basis. GREET 2016 provides
