Thermal Cloak Passively Keeps Electric Vehicles Cool in the Summer and Warm in the Winter

When an electric vehicle is parked outside, its temperature can swing wildly from day to night and season to season, which can lead to deterioration of the battery. To dampen these fluctuations and extend the battery's lifespan, researchers have ...

Testing Real Driverless Cars in a Virtual Environment

Researchers have developed new software to aid in the development, evaluation and demonstration of safer autonomous, or driverless, vehicles. Called the Vehicle-in-Virtual-Environment (VVE) method, it allows the testing of driverless cars in a perfectly safe ...

Tracking Ships' Icy Paths Amidst Climate Change

Understanding when and where ships are entering areas of Arctic sea ice can help elucidate the potential impacts of vessel traffic in the ...

Wind Farm Noise Exposure Doesn't Wake People Up from Their Slumber More Than Road Traffic Noise

Short exposure to wind farm and road traffic noise triggers a small increase in people waking from their slumber that can fragment their sleep patterns, according to new research. But importantly, the new study also shows that wind farm noise isn't ...
