Well, perhaps this is a design flaw, Cabe, but maybe it can be solved in future iterations of the design.

That sounds more like containing the explosion to make it safer and prevent fires.  Have they really solved the problem?

Yes I read about the shield or protection provided by the Tesla motors around batteries.

Cabe,

You are correct. I do believe Tesla Motors have cracked the code on exploding batteries by reinforcing the battery pack with a titaninum shield of sum sort surrounding them.

Any large amount of batteries in a pack are essentually a disaster waiting to happen. So, why not ride on top of it? Almost directly on top!

Elizabeth,

Pretty impressive story on how engineering students are solving real world problems supported with development boards and electronic parts from major semiconductor manufacturers, like Texas Instruments while in college. Just wondrering, what TI product was used in developing the BIM product?
