NASA Electric Bus Quietly Tours Kennedy NASA

Steven Siceloff NASA’s John F. Kennedy Space Center A new bus made an unusual impression on officials at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida recently when the all-electric vehicle carried a contingent of center, state and local officials on a tour of NASA’s launch site. Driving around the Vehicle Assembly Building, the bus made so little noise it couldn’t be picked out from among the ambient sounds outside the facility. Your first impression will be that it’s not even on, that it’s not even running, Proterra engineer Joel Torr told the group just before they climbed aboard for the ride. People aren’t used to this big, quiet, clean bus. It’s ...

Clemson Vehicular Electronics Laboratory Electric PowerAssisted Steering

Electronic Power Steering Basic Description Power steering systems supplement the torque that the driver applies to the steering wheel. Traditional power steering systems are hydraulic systems, but electric power steering (EPS) is becoming much more common. EPS eliminates many HPS components such as the pump, hoses, fluid, drive belt, and pulley. For this reason, electric steering systems tend to be smaller and lighter than hydraulic systems. EPS systems have variable power assist, which provides more assistance as the speed of a vehicle decreases and less assistance at higher speeds. They do not require any significant power to operate when no steering assistance is required. For this ...

A123 Systems Bankruptcy: Is A Complete Sell-Off Next? Lithium ion battery maker A123 Systems today said it has sold its automotive business to Johnson Controls and is filing for bankruptcy protection.

Johnson Controls will acquire a significant set of assets for its $125 million investment, some of which were paid with federal aid. A123 Systems’ auto business includes its technology, two battery factories in Michigan, a cathode powder manufacturing facility in China, and A123’s stake ...

A 1972 SAAB 96 Electric Vehicle Saab History

A 1972 SAAB 96 Electric Vehicle With everyone going green these days, it does not surprise me when I received the following information from a colleague. Apparently, a Saab Enthusiast by the name of Christen Johansen in New York, has recently outfitted a beautiful 1972 SAAB 96 into a full on Electric Vehicle or EV . This is certainly not the first Saab or vintage SAAB that has had the necessary modifications in order to run with electric power. Back in 1993, Walter Kern, a physicist by trade and also the creator of the SAAB Quantum. designed and re-engineered a 1974 SAAB Sonett III to run on electrical power. Here are some additional videos covering this project that are of particular ...

August 2003 Show and Tell in San Jose V is for Voltage electric vehicle forum

August 2003, Show and Tell in San Jose The local chapter of the Electric Automobile Association (http://www.eaaev.org/ ) regularly holds events where they gather electric vehicles in a public place, place out flyers and the like, and talk to whoever goes by. In August 2003 I got to be part of one of these events, bringing my big scooter (EVT 4000). The venue was the Tech Museum of Innovation in downtown San Jose, and it was the same weekend as the San Jose Jazz festival. This meant the downtown was absolutely bonkers with exhibits all over the place and a ton of people all over. You might think that would be good, but the people were generally too busy with the music to talk with us. The ...

Why China& s Electric Vehicle Industry Isn& t Ready for Prime Time US News

Why China Isn’t Ready for Electric Vehicles Despite China’s ambitions, it’s not well positioned to compete in the global electric vehicle market. In this Nov. 5, 2013 photo, a visitor looks at an E30 EV, a small electric vehicle of Chinese state-owned automobile manufacturer Dongfeng Motor Co. at China International Industry Fair in Shanghai, China.

By 2020, auto analysts expect more than 2 million electric vehicles to be sold ...

Vandals Attack Electric Grid In Arkansas Forbes

Vandals Attack Electric Grid In Arkansas In the early morning hours of August 21st, the electric power grid was targeted in what appears to have been a deliberate, decidedly low-tech act of vandalism–with more dangerous implications for grid safety. The incident was initially described in media reports as something akin to thoughtless vandalism involving a severed transmission line. There was nothing random about it. On August 23, 2013, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for a downed high-tension power transmission line in central Arkansas near the city of Cabot. As the Cabot community is aware, ...
