Autonomous Driving: Styrian Development Saves Millions in Test Kilometres
Autonomous Driving: Styrian Development Saves Millions in Test Kilometres
TU Graz, JOANNEUM RESEARCH, AVL and Fraunhofer Austria have developed a method to validate test drives through highly realistic driving simulation studies and to substantially simplify the approval process for automated driving systems. Further images for download at the end of the text Driving simulator tests are popular - for understandable reasons: any scenario can be simulated at the touch of a button.

Brakes as Emitters of Particulate Matter
Brakes as Emitters of Particulate Matter
"We have a problem and nobody knows how big it is," says TU Graz researcher Peter Fischer. But one thing is certain: brakes cause more particulate matter (PM) emissions than internal combustion engines via their exhaust gases. Nevertheless, there is a shortage of basic knowledge and legal regulations.

Electric Vehicle Batteries: The older they get, the safer they are
Electric Vehicle Batteries: The older they get, the safer they are
Studies at TU Graz show that the older an traction battery of electric vehicles (EV) is, the lower the danger it poses. Now the researchers and industry partners want to define parameters for the subsequent use of discarded batteries. As part of the project "SafeBattery", a team from Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) has been investigating the behaviour of lithium-based batteries in electric cars under crash loads for the past four years.

TU Graz provides know-how for efficient aircraft engine from General Electric
TU Graz provides know-how for efficient aircraft engine from General Electric
In the EU project TURANDOT, researchers from TU Graz investigated a sharkskin-like coating for engine blades and tracked the flow of cooling air in the engine. In this way, they make aircraft more fuel-efficient, less expensive and quieter. Additional Images for download at the end of the text An engine is more efficient and quieter the larger and slower the fan (note: that's the turbofan at the front of the jet engine) is.

New exhaust gas measurement registers ultrafine pollutant particles for the first time
New exhaust gas measurement registers ultrafine pollutant particles for the first time
Together with international partners, researchers at Graz University of Technology have developed a measurement method that measures particles below 10 nanometres for the first time and will contribute to the implementation of future, stricter emission standards. Additional pictures for download at the end of the text A few days ago, the European Commission presented its Green Deal, which aims to make the EU climate neutral by 2050 in order to protect the environment and improve people's health and quality of life.

Vehicle Emissions: New sensor technology to improve air quality in cities
Vehicle Emissions: New sensor technology to improve air quality in cities
Researchers at TU Graz are working together with European partners on new possibilities of measuring vehicle emissions. Pictures to download at the end of the text Today, air pollution is one of the biggest challenges facing European cities. As part of the Horizon 2020 research project CARES (City Air Remote Emission Sensing), an international research consortium is working on new contactless exhaust measurement methods that will enable municipalities to take emission-reducing measures.

TU Graz study shows: Driving-simulator training reduces accidents with motorcycles
TU Graz study shows: Driving-simulator training reduces accidents with motorcycles
TU Graz researchers develop driving-simulator courses for driving schools which can reduce collision risk between motorcycles and cars. Additional pictures for download at the end of the text There are 4233 accidents involving motorcycles in Austria each year. In more than half the cases other vehicles are involved.

Nitrogen Oxides Emissions: Traffic Dramatically Underestimated as Major Polluter
Nitrogen Oxides Emissions: Traffic Dramatically Underestimated as Major Polluter
Traffic contributes more to nitrogen oxide emissions in Europe than previously thought. This is the result of a current study carried out by scientists from the University of Innsbruck. The research team headed by Thomas Karl shows that even newer air quality models underestimate traffic related nitrogen oxide pollution by up to a factor of 4.
