Ford Electric Batteries: Secret Sensors

Ford, GE, and the University of Michigan have announced a joint, three-year, $3 million study that hopes to implant sensors into electric car batteries in order to predict their lifespan. As far as battery technology is concerned, this project is high science, and could enable the average driver to know the exact life of a car’s battery pack at any given moment. One other goal of the study is to find ways to get more miles out of every battery pack, until the units are totally depleted. Scientists say that even unusable batteries, by today’s standards, could have their lives lengthened.
Ford Electric Batteries: Competition
Ford is not the only car maker to break ground on the research front. For many years, Audi has used the racing circuit to test its electric battery concepts. One of the results of that effort is the Audi R8 E-Tron.
