This Mobility Technology TOE highlights advancements in emissions control and reduction, electric vehicle propulsion, graphene applications, carbon fiber components, predictive maintenance software, global positioning software, pressure sensors, and autonomous vehicles. Innovations include eco-friendly mobile generator reduces emissions at ports, an electronic device to monitor nitrogen dioxide emission reduction performance, a highly efficient propulsion solution for electric vehicles, an automotive component made from graphene, a carbon fiber manufacturing technology that enables development of strong components, fully autonomous vehicles for geo-fenced environments, decentralized vehicle registry based on blockchain, an application-specific pressure sensor technology, and a portable high-precision global navigation satellite system.
The purpose of the Mobility Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) is to raise awareness of global technology innovations in self-propelled ground-based mobile platforms that are not only technically significant, but potentially offering commercial value. Each monthly TOE provides subscribers valuable descriptions and analyses of 10 noteworthy innovations. The main focus is on highway-licensed motor vehicles (light, medium and heavy). Passenger cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, scooters and railway locomotives are within the product scope, energized by any fuel. Many of the innovations concern powertrains (internal combustion engines, turbines, battery electrics, fuel cell electrics, hybrid-electrics), as well as drivetrains (including transmissions), interiors--seating and displays, advanced materials--as for body/chassis, wireless connectivity, and self-driving technology that is currently receiving so much attention. The A&T TOE outlines and evaluates each innovation, notes which organizations and developers are involved, projects the likely timing for commercialization, furnishes a patent analysis, and provides valuable strategic insights for industry stakeholders.
