Mitsubishi Motors North America of Detroit released the Concept-RA, a coupe that matches high performance with environmental sensitivity. The Concept-RA is powered by a high-output, low-emissions 2.2-l, 4-cylinder, 16-valve turbo diesel engine. To comply with U.S. emissions standards, the diesel relies on a new catalytic converter system that utilizes diesel oxidation catalyst, NOx trap catalyst and diesel particulate filter technologies.
The Concept-RA also makes use of lightweight materials in construction to help reduce vehicle mass for improved performance, fuel economy and safety. The coupe features a new body structure that utilizes an aluminum space frame made from extruded aluminum sections and die-cast aluminum components. The hood, fenders and other outer panels are molded from impact-resistant and easily recycleable plastic resin.

Because of the increasing ubiquity of wearable technology, it would be easy to think that design of wearable devices is routine and involves common design and engineering knowledge. Missed efforts in development will be remembered once the devices are used in the field
This grab-bag of new fasteners and adhesives work with a range of materials they can attach to, as well as a wide variety of applications. Several are for use in consumer applications, such as wearables or other compact electronic assemblies, and some of the adhesives have extended service temperature ranges and cure at room temperature.
As governments, associations, and NGOs around the world seek to protect consumers, national and regional standards are becoming mandatory, challenging manufacturers and making testing and certification necessary for any product developed and brought to market.
