L'Europe va bien réduire les émissions de CO2 des voitures

L'Allemagne a accepté vendredi les modalités imposées aux constructeurs automobiles pour réduire les rejets de dioxyde de carbonne (CO2) des voitures particulières à 95 grammes par kilomètre fin 2020, a annoncé la présidence lituanienne de l'UE.

L'accord conclu mardi avec le Parlement européen et la Commission a été approuvé "à l'unanimité par les représentants des États à Bruxelles", a précisé le ministre de l’Environnement lituanien Valentinas Mazuronis dans un communiqué.
Il est toutefois très éloigné des demandes des constructeurs allemands, qui réclamaient de différer la réalisation de l'objectif à 2024.

Científicos alemanes crearon una innovadora batería de iones de litio capaz de cargar la energía a vehículos eléctricos con una vida últil de hasta 27 años.
Los investigadores del Centro de Estudios de Energía Solar e Hidrógeno de Baden-Wuttemburg explicaron que la nueva batería resiste hasta unos 10 mil ciclos completos de cargas y descargas, lo que amplía su rendimiento en una duración total de 27 años y de cuatro meses sin dejar de funcionar.

La batería podrá ser utilizada para almacenar energía o para proporcionar carga a los automóviles eléctricos, ya que con su capacidad de un mil 100 vatios, se mejora la fuerza de aceleración.

Das Roboter-Auto rollt an

Die Autoindustrie kündigt eine Revolution an: In nur zehn Jahren werden Autos ganz ohne Fahrer über die Straßen rollen. Die Fortschritte bei der Zukunftstechnik sind schon jetzt beeindruckend. (Von Gernot Kramper)

Die Vision eines autonom fahrenden Fahrzeugs wird in der Öffentlichkeit meist mit dem Google-Auto verbunden. In den USA sind computergesteuerte Autos von Google eine halbe Million Kilometer unfallfrei auf öffentlichen Straßen gefahren. Doch auch klassische Automobilhersteller wie Volkswagen, BMW, Daimler, Volvo und Toyota sowie Zulieferspezialisten wie Bosch und Continental arbeiten seit Jahren an dem Thema. Und anders als Google fällt es ihnen leichter, neue Systeme in die Serienproduktion zu bringen. Auf der Computermesse CES in Las Vegas etwa stehen selbstfahrende Autos von Audi und Lexus.
