Quotes

"Parents can also set limits of the car's volume when their teen is driving" said Pamela Eady, a spokeswoman for Ford
Freescale best describes the IGBT and its function in the EV environment as "a high-voltage, high-current switch connected directly to the traction motor in a hybrid electric or electric vehicle. It takes direct current energy from the car's battery and, through the inverter, converts the alternating current control signals into the high-current, high-voltage energy needed to commutate or turn the motor. The IGBT is an ideal motor inverter switch for 20KW to 120KW EV motors due to its high efficiency and fast switching. The more efficient the IGBT, the less power is lost to wasted heat, resulting in better mileage or ‘miles per watt' (MPW) of energy"
Says Michael OMichael O Hara, chief marketing officer, GSM Association: "The growth in embedded connectivity is likely to be fuelled in part by regulations in the European Union and Russia making it mandatory for new vehicles to ship with systems that are able to automatically alert emergency services in the event of an accident."
"Does it count when OnStar reception sounds like a 1980s-vintage Walkie-Talkie from Toys R Us?" asked Jay Ramey. "And the OnStar lady is unable to recognize my voice and I am unable to recognize hers?"
