A Range Tracker for Electric Cars
A major shortcoming of electric cars is drivers’ uncertainty over how far the vehicle can be driven before the battery dies, a phenomenon known as “range anxiety.” But a new Web-based tool developed by KTH researchers promises to show just how far an electric car can go before the charge runs out.
Roads could power cars across Europe
Electric car development is primarily focused on fuel efficiency, and until recently, researchers have been seeking answers under the bonnet. But a team at KTH Royal Institute of Technology is looking a little lower, at the street below.
Smart Home Research Set to Begin
KTH researchers are about to begin work on designs for innovative new “smart homes” in Norra Djurgårdsstaden, the gigantic showcase development that will re-shape the northeastern edge of the Swedish capital in coming decades. Smart electric grids, already a KTH strength, are an important element in the project.
