Ultra-thin sensors could extend electric vehicle ranges

GE, Ford and the University of Michigan want to prevent electric vehicle owners from having range-anxiety attacks.

Together, they are researching new sensor technologies that could help optimize battery management, giving drivers far more control over how far vehicles could be driven. The R&D effort is the subject of a three-year long, $3.1 million project that has received funding under the ARPA-E (Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy) program.

Sensors are already used for this purpose today, but the new technology would allow them to be placed in locations that were previously inaccessible, providing more information about temperature, voltage and currents than was previously possible.
