  • Ultracapacitors charge ahead
    The limitations of current energy-storage solutions could encourage consideration of these alternative solutions, but more engineering work needs to be done to reduce costs.
  • Technology for all
    Automotive industry executives expect high-end technologies, once considered only for inclusion in luxury cars, to increasingly make their way into entry- and mid-level vehicles in the very near future.
  • Convergence continues
    A lot of automotive electronics ground has been covered at the Convergence conferences past, and there's more to come at this year's show in October.
  • Fueling the next generation
    As hydrogen joins the battle for automotive power with gasoline and diesel, the future could be more choices rather than one winner.
  • Bringing down the noise
    To reduce noise and vibration from a cylinder-on-demand engine in three-cylinder mode, engineers at Honda R&D have developed an active engine mount system
  • Exhaust tones
    Longer life, less pressure, and better appearance would do us all good, but for exhaust systems, they are mandatory--and on a tight budget.
  • Timing demands get real
    Real-time operating systems are being adopted to keep up with the growing number of speedy electronics.
  • Simulated sound
    Simulators bring NVH testing to the forefront of the vehicle design process.
