5G Automotive Forum 2018 – Trends and Predictions

5G Automotive gathered together automotive industry experts to discuss rising challenges of 5G telecommunications and implementing them within smart vehicles. A highly interactive panel discussion took place on September 25, where the panel chairmen Dr. Tim Pohlmann, CEO and Founder of IPlytics, and Mr. Dominique Bonte, Managing Director and Vice President of ABI Research, raised many crucial questions that were ranging from the present 5G landscape to as deep as the most complex use cases. Apart from that, there was a broad discussion over when 5G could be expected to be in the market in its full penetration. 5G Deployment […]

How Wireless Charging Will Improve E-mobility

CEVT (China Europe Vehicle Technology) is an innovation center for the Geely Group based in Gothenburg. During the last few years CEVT has made some great progress within the area of wireless charging for e-mobility and electrified vehicles. To develop and test the new technology CEVT has integrated a wireless charging system into a Lynk & Co 01. Lynk & Co is a new mobility brand in the Geely group that will launch their first car model in Europe 2020. Electric Vehicles: Challenges of Charging One of the main issues with plug in vehicles is the inconvenience of charging. Therefore, […]

How to Overcome Challenges of GDPR Conformity

Challenges of GDPR The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that is in effect since 25th May 2018 tightens the requirements regarding data protection for anyone collecting or processing personal data within the European Union (EU). Violations of GDPR requirements may lead to heavy fines. However, the topic of Data Privacy for cyber-physical systems and related requirements towards development and operation are not new. Many regional laws and regulations pursuing the goals of confidentiality, integrity, availability, storage and purpose limitation, minimization, transparency, and accuracy of personal data have already been in place long before the introduction of the GDPR. Nevertheless, […]

Efficient Usage of AI in the Sense-Plan-Act Model of Autonomous Driving

Dr. Nicole Beringer, the partner manager in EB – Driving the Future of Software, shared insights at our Autonomous Vehicle and ADAS Forum in Berlin on 24-25 of October on what are the biggest current challenges of Efficient Usage of AI in the Sense-Plan-Act Model of Autonomous Driving. The process of implementing Autonomous vehicle and utilizing ADAS is rather challenging, as manufacturers need to make very safe and reliable technology, and in order to do that they need to predict quite a lot of driving tasks and road situations. The major challenge is safety. You need to process huge amount […]

E-mobility of CEZ Group

CEZ is active in E-mobility since 2009 when we started our pilot project in cooperation with Peugeot. The aim of the pilot was to test both technology and our assumptions about the future e-mobility market. For utility a focus on charging infrastructure is a logical entry point into e-mobility business. Due to a nature of our core business, providing charging, both public and private, is natural extension of our services and products we offer to our customers. E-mobility fits well into a changing world of utility business, where we are moving from simple supply of commodity to more sophisticated products […]

Benefits from Smart Charging and Discharging

Plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) (whether PHEVs or BEVs) will represent a key technology to reach the CO2 emissions target in the near future. As a consequence, car manufacturers are offering more and more PEVs in their product line. The battery capacities of these PEVs are getting increasingly larger thanks to technological improvements and to scaling effects leading to cost reductions. PEV batteries need to be charged by being plugged in the electric grid. The bigger the battery, the more power is required to charge the battery during the same period of time. The rise in PEV penetration thus poses serious […]

Electric Vehicles’ Heavy Duty Possibilities

Think ahead: the possibilities of heavy duty EVs Electric fleets will be part of a massive change that we will see within the transportation sector. At ChargePoint we believe that no major industry will change more over the next two decades than transportation: the combination of “on-demand mobility”, “autonomous vehicles” and “vehicle electrification” will change the world as we know it. This will lead to a dramatic acceleration of productivity and even more important to substantial improvement of the quality of our life. So what about heavy duty EVs? We think the time for eTrucks is ripe and that three […]

Development of Smart Vehicle-to-Grid Integration to Face Growing Energy Demand from EV

The world is changing and is starting to look like the futuristic movies from 30 years ago. What people dreamed about then, we start to see it now: mobile phones, artificial intelligence passing Turing test, electromobiles, self-driving cars, aero taxis. The reason we are moving forward is because we are dreaming. Dreaming about convenience, speed, environment friendliness. Evolution of transport among others is led by a few trends/desires of people: clean transport to make our lives in the cities of better quality, cheaper transport. This is exactly the reason the world is seeing a fast development of electric cars, shared […]
