Nanotechnology for Smarter Planes and Cars, Better Healthcare - The needs of society are driving the nano revolution, with applications springing up anywhere they will have societal benefit. The latest issue of NANO Magazine looks at a number of these benefits in different sectors, including the automotive industry, transport, medicine, food, textiles and inket devices.
Nano for cars and transport

Societal benefits are being embraced by the automotive industry in its quest to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. The effect of this new strategic direction is apparent to us all. Nanotechnology has an important role to play, from new nanocomposites to reduce car body weight, to better batteries that enable high performance hybrid cars, and sensor techniques that reduce fuel waste.

Nanotechnology in cars has many drivers - passenger safety (better tyres, airbags), competitiveness in the form of more features for less money (sensors for car 'health' monitoring), liability issues (crash avoidance sensors), style (colour changing paints, stay-clean seat fabrics), and sustainability (lighter-weight structural materials, super efficient batteries for hybrid vehicles).
