“EV-STER” The Next-Generation Compact Electric Spots Car by Honda

December 6, 2011 · Filed Under Clean Tech, Green Tech · Comments Off 

When I visited the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show 2011, I got a weird feeling that in spite of all the hypes about the Electric Vehicles, our good old fashion gasoline driven vehicles are here to stay for a long haul. How long exactly? No one knows, probably for another 20 to 30 years or even more. On the surface there are no competitions when it comes to fuel efficiency and zero-emission, but in reality lots of effort is going to make the gasoline engine more fuel efficient to meet the Japanese government criteria on fuel efficient society with set of deadline which is at the dismal level of 30% less CO2 emission in comparison to Zero offered by their EVs counterparts. EV conceptual vehicles in the show were all labeled as something fun to drive a mere marketing tactic to sell the sleek aero dynamic body with multitude of cool looking features that average consumers do not care so much about. Among some of these new concepts was Honda’s EV-STER electric sports car. The new EV-STER features an easy to operate twin-lever steering which was adopted in pursuit of the joy of driving. Furthermore, the new EV-STER allows its driver to make own adjustment such as motor output and suspension settings. Read more

Development of Micro Flowreactor, a Device for Evaluating Combustion Characteristics of Fuels in Automobiles

January 4, 2011 · Filed Under Trendy Products · 1 Comment 

Group of researchers at Tohoku University in Collaboration with IHI has successfully developed “Micro Flowreactor” a fuel characterization device for evaluating combustion characteristics such as gasoline in automobiles through use of micro combustion technologies which enables the gas combustion with in a narrow tube where flames can be survived. The Micro Flowreactor is used for measuring the octane ratings an essential measurement for engine development. The newly developed consists of air-fuel mixture generating system, a small-inside-diameter glass tube, an external heater and imaging device with special optical filters. The way it works is that the temperature of air-fuel mixture within micro-diameter glass tube increases as it goes toward downstream where a temperature is maintained at high level due to an external heater.
