You can certainly use solar cells. There are concept cars with roof and bonnet covered in cells. Not sure of the windows, but they may be in development?
As for tyres/wheels if you add any load...
Now I understand why certain airbag manufacturers's airbags deploy by accelerating too fast and braking too fast. The MEMS device is too sensitive. Interesting.
Hi, thanks for the article you use the idea of medium system pressure demand for forward/backward blade fan selection, could you elaborate - it has a sense of a unitless dimension; what would be the parameters...
Depends from the control type... On-OFF, PID....
Thanks @Boss - glad you liked it :o)
Energy efficiency requirements continue to change under the MEPS programme. ABB Motors and products range not only comply with the upcoming regulations but often exceed them.
The world of the very small has become very big business over the last few years. We take a look at the development of micromachined devices and how they are inlfluencing the future direction of both industrial and consumer technology.
In my first article about the new decade, I looked at how the innovations of the 1920s have helped shape the 2020s. In this article, we’ll look even further back to the 1820s to see if technology has been influenced by inventions from 200 years ago.
We're talking real-life Jurassic World stuff here. You know they are not real, but they're still pretty terrifying! And that's true even without animatronics as this hoax video demonstrates...
Convenient automation solution for air and drive technology. This application example enables you to control up to four ebm-papst fans via MODBUS RTU.
Automation makes for easy, efficient and space-saving aeration and ventilation – speed control is already sufficient. For many applications, all you need is one switch, one SINAMICS G frequency converter and one motor.

As servers become wider to allow for more internal components, the space available for mounting the racks reduces accordingly. Accuride has considered this in their designs and developed the DZ2807 server rack slide.
Part 3 of my project to create a highly visual machine to demonstrate the crossover of IT and automation for the DesignSpark team. Here I explain the central control software written and show how I used OpenCV to calculate the fluid levels.
