TU Graz, the University of Leoben, the Austrian Fire Brigade Association and ILF Consulting Engineers have investigated the effects of e-vehicle fires in tunnel systems. The results are reassuring for passenger cars, but not for commercial vehicles. For the latter, as well as for fires in...
Fossil combustion engines are generally considered to be less environmentally friendly, as they are responsible for a large proportion of transport-related CO₂ emissions. Helmut Eichlseder, explains why the internal combustion engine cannot be missing from the sustainable mobility mix.
The fully autonomous, mobile charging robot finds its way independently to the parked electric vehicle (EV) and supplies it with energy. The prototype developed by TU Graz and the Austrian companies ALVERI and ARTI Robots is intended to contribute to the widespread use of e-mobility.
René Rieberer has been a researcher at TU Graz since 1996 and is involved in environmentally friendly heating technology. But it’s not just in research that everything revolves around this; he also monitors his private Heating and ventilation system with all kinds of measurement technology.
"We have a problem and nobody knows how big it is," says TU Graz researcher Peter Fischer. But one thing is certain: brakes cause more particulate matter (PM) emissions than internal combustion engines via their exhaust gases. Nevertheless, there is a shortage of basic knowledge and legal...
Studies at TU Graz show that the older an traction battery of electric vehicles (EV) is, the lower the danger it poses. Now the researchers and industry partners want to define parameters for the subsequent use of discarded batteries.
In the unique pilot factory of TU Graz, now all types of companies can test agile and data-secure manufacturing concepts regarding Industry 4.0 – and beyond, the new landscape for research presents the first university 5G campus solution in Austria.
TU Graz researcher Mario Hirz leads the mobility module in the university course "Leadership in digital transformation" planned for autumn 2021. In this interview, he talks about the entrepreneurial opportunities of autonomous driving and new vehicle concepts.
In the EU project TURANDOT, researchers from TU Graz investigated a sharkskin-like coating for engine blades and tracked the flow of cooling air in the engine. In this way, they make aircraft more fuel-efficient, less expensive and quieter.
Austrian Road Safety Board, and TU Graz have investigated tobogganing accidents for the first time in a computer-simulated crash test. The results: Wearing a helmet and the correct sitting position dramatically reduce the risk of injury for children while tobogganing.
Due to current efforts being made in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the associated political focus on hydrogen as a clean energy carrier, methods for sustainable hydrogen production and efficient utilization are again in great demand.
TU Graz, ams and Silicon Austria Labs has developed a compact and energy-efficient sensor for mobile devices, which informs users in real time about the fine dust content in the air and warns them in case of elevated values.
Researchers at TU Graz and AVL focus on software systems of autonomous driving systems. They developed a method for generating safety-critical simulation scenarios and an adaptive control procedure for compensating for internal errors.
Philipp Eisele, doctoral student at Graz University of Technology, has developed a compact gearbox with intelligent sensor technology that achieves twice the gear ratios of previous gearboxes and enables new, smart services.
Protective equipment for clinical personnel is in short supply worldwide these days. TU Graz manufactures 10,000 urgently needed protective face shields for Steirische Krankenanstalten GmbH (KAGes) using 3D printing technology. The first 1,000 units were handed over today.
Together with international partners, researchers at Graz University of Technology have developed a measurement method that measures particles below 10 nanometres for the first time and will contribute to the implementation of future, stricter emission standards.
The ESA OPS-SAT CubeSat, the world’s first flying laboratory, will test new technologies for operational space applications. OPS-SAT was launched today at 09:54 CET from the European spaceport in Kourou in French Guiana, on board a Soyuz launcher. The mission will last at least one year.
With the introduction of the 48 V electrical system, new possibilities have become feasible for conventional powertrains. Besides many functionalities from the hybrid sector, the higher voltage level in particular offers solutions for the application of auxiliaries. The aim is to increase the...
Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles. that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
TU Graz researchers together with international development partners have developed a technological concept for reducing nitrogen oxide in existing diesel vehicles. The EU has rewarded the idea with prize money worth millions.
The aim of the new CD Laboratory, a joint project between TU Graz and Mechatronics Systems – an SME from Styria, is to make use of electrical energy in auxiliary drives and household appliances as efficiently as possible.
