Game-changing trends

The last decade has seen an amazing advancement in embedded system development techniques, tools and technologies. Today, we now have microcontrollers with clock speeds above 1 GHz with more than 4 megabytes for flash storage. This dramatic increase in capabilities for microcontrollers and their affordable costs is going to usher in a completely new design paradigm in the decade to come.

The truck of the future

Trucks will remain essential to cargo transport in the upcoming decades. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and their partners have developed a concept for the truck of the future, including Europe-wide approval for the use of LHV trucks (Longer Heavier Vehicles), diesel hybrid drives and a multifunctional driver’s cab.

Export grows significantly

In 2018, exports of die-casting and low-pressure die-casting machinery increased on average by 6.5 per cent in all reporting countries – from just under EUR 866 million to EUR 922 million – following the decline in international trade in 2016 and 2017. Whereas China, Japan and the USA reported a single-digit decline in exports in 2018, exports from the CEMAFON countries (European Foundry Equipment Suppliers Association) increased on average by 11 per cent. Last year, exports from Austria and South Korea enjoyed significant growth with exports of around EUR 27 million and 28.5 million respectively, values roughly equivalent to exports from the USA.

New battery without toxics

German researchers at Fraunhofer Institute for Materials and Beam Technology (IWS) have created a new way to make lithium-ion batteries using a dry film instead of the semi-liquid paste employed today. The result is a better battery that is cheaper to manufacture and kinder to the environment. And it is already in small scale production. That are very good news for carmakers.
