Clemson University is establishing a 400-acre International Center for Automotive Research (www.clemson.edu/autoresearch). The campus will comprise a graduate engineering program and research and testing facilities, including automotive electronics and crash-worthiness labs, a full-scale wind tunnel, and a fuels lab, which will emphasize hydrogen research. Halfway between Charlotte and Atlanta, the center is in a corridor home to two thirds of the nation's motorsports race teams.
A new method of modeling how they are created with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) could reduce the cost of carbon nanostructures used for for research and commercial applications, including advanced sensors and batteries.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
