As EV’s/PHEV’s are developed to face the challenges for ever greater energy efficiency, safety and sustainability, sensor systems that provide the enabling data are key. Cost effective, accurate and reliable monitoring of these vehicle systems, requires new materials and capabilities to both realise the ubiquitous level of sensor deployment and to protect these sensitive systems from challenging electrical, mechanical and environmental effects. AMD is working with partners to address these major challenges and bring positive impact to the automotive world.
Battery Cell Structural Health Monitoring
Monitoring of battery cells for structural stress load and temperature.
Sensors can be printed directly onto the cell and integrated into battery packs.
Direct print ultra-sensitive, non-metallic sensors to monitor torque within structures in real time.
These can be integrated into composites and elastomeric structures, or printed directly onto existing components.
Printed Non-Metallic Antenna
Recyclable, non-metallic printable antenna, suitable for multiple substrates (including elastomeric).
Direct print RFID antennae for automotive parts management and end of life recycling.
Conformal, sprayable, flexible and stretchable shielding.
This technology can be integrated into plastics, composites, coatings and foams to protect sensitive components such as battery cell monitoring systems from electromagnetic interference.
