ROBOTIKER-TECNALIA Technological Centre is currently developing the project known as TANGER (Technologies for New Generation Automobiles). These technologies will integrate novel and innovative solutions into new automotive products centred at the point of driving. Within its strategy of product and processes design and development, ROBOTIKER-TECNALIA have taken a clear decision to technologically enhance the point of driving, this being the centre of control of the vehicle, taking in both the driver and the elements with which the main decisions for its optimum operation are taken.
This initiative from ROBOTIKER-TECNALIA is in line with the concept of Environmental Intelligence for the Automobile, the vehicle being considered an item which has to be equipped with high levels of connectivity and intelligence and which also interacts with its environment in a conscious manner. Thus, the automobile of the future will be a receiver of information that will respond accordingly and provide the necessary means for the response, but it will also fulfil the function of advising its surroundings and causing others to respond to possible adverse circumstances.
The project will be designed starting with that which is closest to the driver (seating module, controls, etc.), which will enable all the basics for subsequent development to be defined, and then going on to more overall systems such as air conditioning and communications, and finally the physical limitations of the floor, roof, doors, and so on).

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
