An electric car is presented that purifies the air of CO2 while driving

Published

on

A team of students from the Eindhoven University of Technology has built a prototype electric car that removes carbon dioxide from the air as it moves in order to capture more CO2than will be allocated over the entire life cycle of the vehicle.

The goal of the Zem team (EM-07) was to create an electric car with zero carbon emissions. The team created the monocoque and body panels using additive manufacturing techniques to reduce material waste and produce “as little CO2 emissions as possible.”2and use recycled plastic that can be shredded and reused for other projects.

Inside, recycled plastic is used, as well as environmentally friendly materials. Polycarbonate is the material of choice for windows over glass, which the team says is better for the environment. A modular infotainment system, modular electronics and modular lighting have also been installed that can be reused in other products.

The fact that Zem is an electric vehicle means that no carbon dioxide is emitted during its movement. Since the focus of this project was the car’s carbon footprint and recycling, details about the powertrain are scarce, but the students told us that nine 2.3kWh modular batteries and a 22kW motor were installed.

The car uses regenerative braking, and photovoltaic cells are used to extend the driving range. Bi-directional charging is also provided, and digital mirrors are used to reduce aerodynamic drag.

Through the front grille, air is captured, which is cleaned while driving. The team claims the car can remove up to 2kg of CO2 from the air2 for every 20,600 km traveled per year at a speed of about 60 km/h. If the technology is deployed to millions of vehicles on the roads around the world, it could make a real difference to decarbonization efforts.

The Zem filter is currently filled to capacity after 320 km and it is assumed that such filters can be cleaned using green energy. What happens to the captured CO2dont clear.

Even before the launch of Dojo, the Tesla supercomputer has 7360 Nvidia A-100 graphics accelerators and is ranked seventh in the world

Even before the launch of Dojo the Tesla supercomputer has

Tesla AI Infra & AI Platform manager Tim Zaman said the electric vehicle maker now has the world’s seventh largest supercomputer by number of GPUs. And this is before the launch of the Dojo supercomputer.

Tim Zaman confirmed that Tesla has upgraded its supercomputer to 7360 A100 (80 GB) GPUs. This makes the Tesla supercomputer one of the largest in the world in terms of the number of GPUs.

The A100 GPUs are made by Nvidia, where Zaman worked before joining Tesla. Each processor has 80 GB of graphics memory and has a bandwidth of 2 TB per second.

Even before the launch of Dojo, the Tesla supercomputer has 7360 Nvidia A-100 graphics accelerators and is ranked seventh in the world

Tesla’s current supercomputer is the forerunner of the Dojo. Interestingly, Tesla noted last year that the company’s supercomputer, even before Dojo, was already the fifth most powerful in the world with the 5760 Nvidia A100. The company has since added about 1,600 GPUs to the system.

The Tesla Dojo supercomputer is developed in-house, so instead of the Nvidia A100, it will use a custom Tesla D1 chip that will be supported by FP32, BFP16, and CFP8. Dojo will be optimized for machine learning workloads, specifically Tesla Autopilot and Full Self Driving.

Rostec showed the latest sensors based on various physical principles

Rostec for the first time showed the intelligence and signaling complex for covert surveillance 1K144-E, which includes sensors based on various physical principles. They are able to detect infantry and ground vehicles of the enemy, remaining completely invisible.

The complex includes seismic, infrared and magnetometric sensors up to 20 cm in size and weighing 150-600 grams. They are buried in the ground, camouflaged on the ground and provide continuous operation from built-in batteries for up to 30 days.

The system captures moving objects, determines the direction of their movement, counts and classifies them by type: wheeled vehicles, tracked vehicles or manpower. The complex is able to detect an infantryman within a radius of 30 m, wheeled vehicles – up to 120 m, a tank or infantry fighting vehicle – up to 200 m. You can install such sensors in a matter of minutes.

The data is displayed on the operator’s monitor in the form of an electronic map of the area with indications of the location of sensors and detected objects. The system is already being produced by the Sozvezdie Concern (part of Roselectronics).

At the Army forum, for the first time, we present a full-scale sample of the export version of the 1K144-E (TAS3) complex. This is an advanced covert remote surveillance solution for assessing the situation at controlled borders. The complex uses sensors operating on various physical principles, which ensures the reliability of the transmitted data.

This is Chery Tiggo 9 The latest crossover was shown

After the appearance of the first spy photos of the flagship crossover Chery Tiggo 9, renders were created to more accurately examine the expected new product.

The first information about Chery Tiggo 9 appeared last year, the car passes under the model number T26. It will get premium retractable door handles and a new design.

According to Chery’s internal documentation, the T26 will be built on the T2X platform, and its dimensions will only slightly exceed the Tiggo 8 Pro. The exact dimensions will be 4780 x 1920 x 1700 mm with a wheelbase of 2800 mm. Chery Tiggo 9 will be available in 5-, 6- and 7-seater versions. It will be equipped with 1.6- or 2-liter turbo engines, as well as a 7-speed “robot”. The drive can be front or full.

Chery is also preparing a crossover codenamed T26J, which will be a sports modification of the Tiggo 9 with a 5-seater saloon, a 2-liter engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The front of the Chery Tiggo 9 will receive a frameless grille reminiscent of Omoda 5. The headlights are distinguished by LED running lights and a block of high and low beam located under them. Chery Tiggo 9 turn signals are represented by horizontal stripes that are located under the headlights. Fog lights and an adaptive cruise control radar can be seen at the bottom of the front bumper.

At the rear, Chery Tiggo 9 has a single block of lights. Stoplights and turn signals are located in the horizontal elements below them.
