7 promising technologies that will transform cars beyond recognition
Progress does not stand still. Although it sometimes seems that scientists have nothing more to discover in this world, and engineers strive to nowhere, all this really is absolutely not true. Every year there are more and more sophisticated, complicated, but at the same time more and more people available to a broad range of technologies. In this review the same, we will focus on those in the coming years (possibly) change the auto industry beyond recognition.
1. 48-volt electrical systems and actuators
Cars in need of more and more powerful electronics, and today the market to strive to meet this desire. According to engineers and technicians in the coming decades in the field of electrical systems, auto revolution will not happen, but they will grow rapidly and evenly. Moreover, as expected, the pace of development of automotive electronics will grow from year to year.
2. Systems cylinder deactivation
Engineers automakers argue that the rapid pace and will develop the technology in the next few years, used in making engines. Most of all, today otraslevikov concerned about how to get started to make relatively cheap, hybrid engines are able to work equally well in different modes.
3. Hydrogen engines
A few years ago, a hydrogen car seemed something at the level of science fiction. Last year alone, there were some very "fit" samples of this technique. By an absolute majority of the prototypes made for marketing purposes, but progress in this area is encouraging and experts believe that after the electric cars on the market will break the hydrogen car.
4. Tanks for hydrogen
There is no sense from the engine if there is no fuel storage tank. This sad tale just about the hydrogen system. However, and here the engineers were able last year to make significant progress. More than others could do the Americans. Curiously, the project of creation of hydrogen fuel cells funded here including at the state level.
5. The silicon-anode batteries
Promoting electric cars is pushing forward the development of batteries. Engineers and technicians are confident that in the next 10 years will make a real revolution in this field. We are talking about raising the efficiency of modern batteries by 10-40% per year. A guide to the future promises to be silicon.
6. Electric blowers
It is difficult to believe, but the turbocharger in the coming years can get a new life. Thanks to modern technology engineers and technicians have managed to overcome the previously seemingly insurmountable barriers to modernization. It's funny, but in the past many of the borders of unreachable in this area "written off" in the "fundamental laws of physics."
7. The solid-state batteries
Modern car batteries are still quite a big problem from a technical point of view. With recent advances in this field, engineers hope to forget about the electrolyte. Batteries based on the new technologies may prove to be not only easier to manufacture, but also cheaper, and of course - safe.
