Powering Up Electric Heavy-Duty Vehicles


Smokey tailpipe emissions may soon be a thing of the past, as the heavy transport vehicle market catches up with the electric car market to lower their contribution to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Private sedans and light-duty trucks lead the vehicle electrification race, leaving much upside opportunity for heavy transport fleets such as trucks and buses to catch up. In the United Stat... » read more

EV Architectures Evolving For Communication, Connectivity


Electric vehicle architectures are rapidly evolving to accommodate multiple forms of connectivity, including in-vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle, and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication. But so far, automotive OEMs have yet to come to a consensus on the winning technologies or the necessary standards — all of which will be necessary as cars become increasingly autonomous and increasingly inter... » read more

The Good And Bad Of Bi-Directional Charging


Auto OEMs are starting to offer bi-directional charging in EVs, allowing batteries to power homes during outages or wherever else it is needed, and to smooth out any hiccups in the grid. But this technology also can shorten the lifetime of batteries, and it can open the door to more cyberattacks. The idea behind bi-directional charging is simple enough. EVs can store huge amounts of power, a... » read more
