To reduce the risk associated with high-speed police accidents and the potential for fuel leaks that accompany them, Ford has announced that it is developing a fire suppression system as a factory option for the 2005 Crown Victoria Police Interceptors. Built in conjunction with Aerojet, a U.S. military supplier, the system determines the optimal time for deploying the fire suppression material by measuring post-impact vehicle movement using advanced electronics and on-board sensors. More information can be found at www.cvpi.com, which is dedicated to improving communication between law enforcement personnel, independent experts, component suppliers, and Ford employees.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
