Similarities between Electronics Devices & Electric Vehicles Manufacturing

The future of electric vehicles (EVs) in the world is bright .The similarities between electronic companies and EVs run deep.

Key components of an EV can be assembled in modules, like a video game player or a phone. An EV runs on a lithium-ion battery, just like almost every mobile device. It has an electric motor, which these companies also know well.

Sony's Vision-S, like other cars now on the drawing board, is meant to fuse seamlessly with a user's mobile phone. The Vision-S's doors can be opened with an app, a feature already found on today's all-electric Teslas. Approach the car watching a video, and that video ports automatically to the car's video screen, which runs the entire length of the dashboard.

That door trick is an act of electronics, experts points out that the traditional auto door is mechanical: Pull on the door handle, which slides a cable, which opens the latch. But a door meant to open by smartphone would replace the cable with an electronic actuator. The same "drive by wire" systems are evolving for other systems, from steering to brakes.

Then there's all the driver assistance technology, whether it's to parallel park the car or brake for hazards. Each function relies on a thicket of electronic sensors.

Sony's Vision-S has 33 sensors in and around the car, including 12 cameras, as well as devices that measure distance, including ultrasonic devices, radar and lidar.

Add all that up — the actuators, the video screens, the sensors — and the electricity demand becomes formidable. An EV, is better suited to provide all that juice than a traditional car's low-voltage starter battery.

It's also a vast business opportunity for electronics makers, which either produce or are adjacent to every one of those components.

For decades, these companies have been making audio systems and the interfaces to control functions in the car. Now they're seeing ways to embed themselves far deeper.
--- has plans to add EV charging point installation, troubleshooting and maintenance to this service category.

How to setup a repair center for Mobilephones, laptops & computers?

Starting any business requires much thought and research. Below are some points that need to be considered before starting an electronic devices repair business. 1. Domain Knowledge As an entrepreneur you should have the necessary domain knowledge to handle electronic devices. We advise you to have the necessary educational qualifications to back you, namely diploma or degree in electronics. If not appropriately qualified, you should at least possess knowledge by having worked in a repair store. 2. Location The first thing to consider here is to select a storefront to setup your business. Having a storefront means your business is out there for everyone to see, to visit, and the potential for income can be pretty high. Physical location is going to be key. You want a place with easy access, in an area with a large enough customer base to attract, and preferably in an area with little or no competition. These three factors can make or break your business and should be con

Electric Vehicles : Sensors and Programming

With the oil crisis of 1970s, which affected our day to day lives in unfathomable ways, the transport industry too took a toll. A steep increase in the fuel prices meant less use of personal vehicles and thus lesser profits for the automotive industry. With no end in sight to the continuous and exponential rise in fuel prices, it was only in the definite interest of the companies to shift from oil as a fuel to better alternatives. Even though the idea of electric vehicles was prominent then, with some prototypes in existence, the major issue was mileage. With the meager coverage it gave, those cars were pretty useless other than for going shopping inside the city. Long drives and top speeds, the very component of thrill and adventure that car enthusiasts love about a drive was missing. There was no adrenaline rush in Battery Electric Vehicles compared to the traditional Internal Combustion Engine counterparts.  That is until, the TESLA ROADSTER unveiled in 2008. This c
