Knowing how to innovate is the key to generate new perspectives and EMA believes in the importance of experimenting with new solutions to remain competitive.
EMA offers support to Customers who want to be innovative with the definition of the concept and with the feasibility study before starting the project.
Hydrogen is going to play a fundamental role for definitive electrification of mobility in the next 20 to 30 years. In particular, hydrogen can effectively be converted to electric energy in a clean way without combustion. As opposed to batteries, hydrogen tanks are a valid option as a non-degradable, fast refillable energy storage for long-range driving.
Energy is becoming an issue at a global level for every human activity. The on-wheel transportation is at the center of the discussion for companies and government because of fossil fuel, pollution and greenhouse gas emission, that is negatively effecting living on our planet.
The most efficient engines cannot reach an efficiency of 40%. This means that more than 60% of the available energy is wasted as heat.
Innovation in Automotive concerns new functionalities in vehicles or even new ways to accomplish some old features reducing their costs.
Anti-pinch protection systems, for instance in window lifting or seat sliding, may require long activities in order to fit the software control logic for their mechatronic systems increasing development costs.
The main target of the project is to monitor gaseous pollutant levels in an indoor environment, identifying the main sources and controlling the level of IAQ, either by domotic systems or human intervention (e.g. by opening a window).
The secondary target is to combine data from IAQ sensors in order to determine room occupancy and energy consumption habits.
