Recover Energy - Reduce Emissions

The hydraulic hybrid drive system from Rexroth converts braking energy into drive energy for commercial vehicles and mobile equipment and is said to help achieve fuel savings of up to 25% whilst reducing CO2 emissions respectively. The system is especially useful for vehicles with very short start and stop intervals such as city buses, waste collection vehicles or fork lifts.  Read More

Next-generation Stop-Start system substantially broadens range of benefits

A new generation of Belt-Integrated Starter Generators (B-ISG)) have been developed by powertrain engineering consultancy Integral Powertrain. The system solves the cost-benefit issues that have slowed the uptake of existing B-ISG technologies by providing starting refinement equivalent to today's very best systems. These run alongside additional benefits such as powering the air-conditioning system while the engine is stopped and reducing losses whilst the engine is running.  Read More

Shockwave build up

The UK's next land speed record car aims to reach speeds in excess of 1000mph. This simulation video compiled by Swansea University shows the surface pressure build-up on the bottom of the Bloodhound (left) and on the ground (right). You can see the shockwave build up as it travels well beyond the sound barrier.  Read More
