Editor’s note: WRAL TechWire’s weekly Deep Dive feature this week focuses on what could be a big breakthrough in wearable electronics: embroidery. Check out this report from Laura Oleniacz of NC State News Services.

RALEIGH- Embroidering energy-generating threads onto fabric allowed researchers to embed a self-powered digital touchpad and motion sensors into clothing. The technique offers a potential inexpensive and scalable method for fabricating wearable devices.

“Our technique uses embroidery, which is quite simple – you can sew our threads directly onto fabric,” said study lead author Rong Yin, an assistant professor of textile engineering, chemistry and science. at North Carolina State University. “When producing fabrics, you don’t need to worry about portable devices. You can integrate the energy-generating threads after the garment has been made.

In the study published in Nano energy, the researchers tested several models of energy-generating wires. To make them durable enough to withstand the tension and bending of the embroidery stitching process, they eventually used five commercially available copper wires together, which had a thin polyurethane coating. Then they sewed them on cotton fabric with another material called PTFE.

“This is an inexpensive method to make portable electronic devices using commercially available products,” Yin said. “The electrical properties of our prototypes were comparable to other designs that relied on the same energy-generating mechanism.”

The researchers relied on a method of generating electricity called the “triboelectric effect”, which consists of exploiting the electrons exchanged by two different materials, such as static electricity. They found that the PTFE fabric had the best voltage and current performance when in contact with the polyurethane-coated copper wires, compared to other types of fabrics they tested, including cotton and the silk. They also tested coating the plasma embroidery samples to increase the effect.

“In our design, you have two layers – one is your polyurethane-coated conductive copper wires, and the other is PTFE, and they have a gap between them,” Yin said. “When the two non-conductive materials come into contact with each other, one material will lose electrons and some will gain them. When you connect them together, there will be a current.

The researchers tested their threads as motion sensors by embroidering them with PTFE fabric on denim. They placed the embroidery patches on the palm, under the arm, elbow and knee to track electrical signals generated by a person’s movements. They also attached fabric with their embroidery to the insole of a shoe to test its use as a pedometer, finding that their electrical signals varied depending on whether the person was walking, running or jumping.

Finally, they tested their yarns in an over-the-arm textile-based numeric keypad, which they made by embroidering numbers onto a piece of cotton fabric and attaching them to a piece of PTFE fabric. Depending on the number the person pressed on the keypad, they saw different electrical signals generated for each number.

“You can embroider our threads on clothes, and when you move, it generates an electric signal, and these signals can be used as a sensor,” Yin said. “When we put the embroidery in a shoe, if you are running it generates a higher tension than if you were just walking. When we sew numbers on fabric and press them, it generates a different tension for each number It could be used as an interface.

As textile products will inevitably be washed out, they tested the durability of their embroidery design in a series of wash and rub tests. After hand washing and rinsing the embroidery with detergent and drying it in the oven, they found no difference or a slight increase in tension. For the plasma-coated prototype, they found weakened but still superior performance compared to the original sample. After an abrasion test, they found that there was no significant change in the electrical output performance of their designs after 10,000 rub cycles.

In future work, they plan to integrate their sensors with other devices to add more functions.

“The next step is to integrate these sensors into a wearable system,” Yin said.

The study, “Flexible, Durable, and Washable Triboelectric Yarn and Embroidery for Autonomous Sensing and Human-Computer Interaction,” was published online in Nano energy. Co-authors included Yu Chen, Erdong Chen, Zihao Wang, Yali Ling, Rosie Fisher, Mengjiao Li, Jacob Hart, Weilei Mu, Wei Gao, Xiaoming Tao, and Bao Yang. Funding was provided by North Carolina State University through the NC State Faculty Research & Professional Development Fund and the NC State Summer REU program.

India’s home appliances and consumer electronics (ACE) market is expected to nearly double over the next three years to reach around Rs 1.48 lakh crore by 2023, driven by rising domestic demand, it said. said the industry body CEAMA. India has become one of the fastest growing ACE markets in the world and is also emerging as an alternative manufacturing destination from China and other Southeast Asian countries, the Chairman of the Consumer Electronics and Appliances Manufacturers Association (CEAMA), Eric Braganza.

Foreign direct investment in the ACE industry also nearly doubled to $481 million through June 2022 from $198 million in 2021, he added.

“Now several global OEMs are establishing their base in India,” Braganza said while addressing the annual CEAMA function here.

This has been supported by initiatives such as the LIP program in CAs.

He added, however, that similar PLIs (productivity-related incentives) for other categories such as small and major appliances and other products, will further boost domestic manufacturing and create more job opportunities.

“We look forward to more PLI programs in other product categories, which will strengthen India’s component manufacturing base to reduce import dependency, thus propelling the clarion call on ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat'”, did he declare.

The market size of the ACE industry is currently estimated at around Rs 75 lakh crore.

According to Braganza, ACE industry penetration is still low in several categories compared to other global markets and India has plenty of room for growth.

“The past two years have not been good for industry growth due to Covid. However, the industry has now returned to growth and this summer compressor-based cooling products have performed well” , he added.

The industry is very optimistic about adopting new technologies and manufacturing locally under Make-in-India. Several startups are also adding value to the industry.

Currently, the industry is witnessing a trend of premiumization in the market, with sales of high-end and mid-range increasing and entry level declining, he added.

However, Braganza has also requested some support at the political level from the government on taxation under the current GST regime.

He asked for the unanimity of the TPS panel for TV and said that currently the screen size of TV up to 32 inches is less than 18%. Televisions with a screen larger than 32 inches are subject to 28% GST.

Bragança also urged the government to place the energy-saving air conditioner models in the highest bracket from 28% to 18%.

The Minister of Trade and Industry also attended the 43rd annual CEAMA ceremony.

Bombay: Counterfeit products and fake versions of branded products are nothing new in India’s financial capital. However, according to the Mumbai Police, illegal trade, especially in electronics, is thriving in many places in the city. The Mumbai Police are planning to launch an intensive crackdown on these business units.
While the sale was previously limited to specific locations like the Heera Panna mall in Tardeo, counterfeit products now dominate markets in many other locations. Many sellers are venturing there due to their high profitability and high demand for “branded” products at cheaper rates, according to market experts.

Acting on a tip-off from the Enforcers of Intellectual Property Rights (EIPR), Mumbai police recently raided Gaurav Enterprises at Modi Street and Sainath Trading at Agyari Lane in the Fort area and seized various counterfeit Canon, HP (Hewlett-Packard ), Samsung, Epson and many other products. Two people were also arrested.

In September, in a joint effort with the Crime Branch and the Economic Offenses Wing (EOW) of the Mumbai Police, Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Honda traced an extensive parts supply chain counterfeits at Chembur and Grant Road. The police seized more than 1,500 fake spare parts.

In a separate incident, MRA Marg Police recently busted a major racket of shops in Manish Market and Al Saba Market in South Mumbai which were allegedly selling fake watches from major international brands and seized these watches worth Rs 1.06 crore. Fake models from Armani, Diesel, Fossil, G-Shock and Michael Kors among others were seized.

According to police officials, an effective search is rarely possible because sellers often seem to have extensive knowledge of searches. If cops caught one group, many other groups of the same bond would come out, officers said.

Apart from counterfeits, the illegal trading network also sells defective products of original brands as well as stolen items. Some analysts note that the trade in counterfeit products has exploded during the pandemic period.

Raids on Wire Editors & Seizure of Electronic Devices Failed to Follow Law & Procedure: PUCL

The Wire’s editor, Siddharth Vardarajan, told Sabrangindia that although they objected to seizing these devices without providing a hash value (i.e. a numerical value that uniquely identifies data stored in any device at any given time), the police did not relent.

The People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) in a statement issued on 1 November strongly condemned the raids on the residences and offices of the editors of The Wire news portal in New Delhi and Mumbai on 31 October and November, 1st. 2022 as well as the mistreatment of lawyer, Mr. Shadan Farasat and other Wire staff. The raids followed a First Information Report (FIR) filed in New Delhi based on a complaint filed by the head of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National Information and Technology Department, Amit Malviya. The allegations related to cheating, forgery, defamation and criminal association.

It is pertinent to note that a week ago, on October 23, 2022 itself, The Wire officially retracted the story (which is the basis of Amit Malviya’s complaint) after an internal review revealed discrepancies. The retraction was the subject of a prominent article in the Wire under the title “The Wire Retracts Its Meta Stories”. The Wire very clearly, frankly and unambiguously explained the reason for the retraction saying: “Given the discrepancies that have been brought to our attention via our review thus far, The Wire will also be undertaking a thorough review of the reports. precedents made by the technical team involved in our Meta Hedging”.

PUCL’s statement further states that

“What is shocking is that despite the unambiguous retraction and accompanying public candor, the Delhi Police used the complaint filed by Mr Malviya as an opportunity to register a more sinister FIR involving cheating , forgery and criminal conspiracy as a cover to target The Wire and its staff.

“Based on these bogus charges, the Delhi Criminal Police arbitrarily carried out search and seizure operations at the homes of founding editors of The Wire, Siddharth Varadarajan, MK Venu and Sidharth Bhatia, as well as Deputy Editor, Jahnavi Sen and product- cum-entrepreneur, Mithun Kidambi, relying on a notification under section 91 of the 1973 Code of Criminal Procedure. The search of the latter’s home took place after midnight around 2 a.m. on November 1, 2022.

“Any investigation or investigation that the Delhi Police wished to launch could have been carried out by summoning the editors of the Wire for an investigation with the necessary evidence from their articles. The fact that the Delhi Police decided to dramatically raid the residence of Siddharth Varadarajan, MK Venu and others shows that their intention was not to pursue an investigation but to conduct a witch hunt by putting on a show for the search. What makes the actions of the police suspicious is that they carried out the search and seizure when they were fully aware of the public recantation of the stories that formed the basis of the criminal complaint, which makes the police action suspicious. The intention was clearly to intimidate the editors of the Wire and to scare other journalists of their fate if they dared to challenge the dominant interests.

“According to media reports, a total of 16 devices were seized from The Wire’s office. Two phones, a tablet and a laptop from Varadarajan, a phone and laptop each from Venu, Bhatia, Sen and Kidambi, and two hard drives from the accounting department’s computers were among the devices seized. A journalist’s phone and the computer he was working on at the Wire office were also taken to Delhi. Along with these devices, the Delhi police also asked the four publishers and Kidambi to remove passcodes from their phones and laptops, and provide passwords to their official and personal email accounts. Three staff members were asked to provide passwords for their official email accounts, while another staff member was asked to give passwords to official and personal email accounts. ”

Wire editor Siddharth Vardarajan said Sarangindia that they had objected to capturing these devices without providing a hash value (i.e. a numerical value that uniquely identifies the data stored in any device at any given time. Thread submitted objections to this violation of procedure in writing to the Delhi Police Contingent and the Investigator (IO).

Meanwhile, the PUCL statement noted that the crime branch did not follow the required procedure as it removed devices from the news portal office in New Delhi and from the homes of those raided without providing any value. hash, i.e. the numerical value that uniquely identifies the deposited data. in an electronic device at any given time. There are legitimate concerns that the lack of a hash value leaves the door open for planting material on digital devices.

“The widespread access thus obtained by the Crime Branch to information on seized devices also raises serious privacy concerns and violates Section 20(3) and Section 21 of the Indian Constitution. Concerns have been repeatedly expressed about the arbitrary exercise of powers of search and seizure by law enforcement authorities of digital devices, especially since the existing legal provisions are very insufficient and do not provide any procedural safeguards for this purpose. . The Supreme Court recently issued an opinion in motions filed before it by academics and journalist bodies for guidelines on the seizure of digital devices and the cases are currently pending. Forcing an accused to reveal the password to their electronic devices violates the right to self-incrimination. A special CBI tribunal in Delhi recently came to this conclusion based on an interpretation of the scope of the Supreme Court’s judgment in `Selvi v. state of karnataka‘.

“The PUCL strongly condemned this targeting of The Wire and the arbitrary raids and search and seizure operations carried out by the Crime Branch as nothing but another brazen attempt to intimidate and silence independent media. in the performance of their professional roles. It should be noted that the current ruling dispensation has targeted Wire, and in particular the founding editors, Siddharth Varadarajan and MK Venu, because Wire has been at the forefront of journalism in investigation that repeatedly spoke truth to power and sought to hold the executive to account.

“It is this important work done by The Wire that is the real reason for the raids. At PUCL, we support The Wire and condemn what is a blatant attempt to stifle the voices of independent media. PUCL demands that Delhi police end this persecution under the guise of prosecution, drop all charges and return electronic devices seized in the raids to those from whom they were seized.

Volvo Bus Australia says its thermal management system on its BZL electric chassis increases safety and reliability








Volvo has added a thermal management system to its BZL electric chassis

According to Volvo, while offering Australia’s safest, most reliable and longest lasting electric chassis in the Volvo BZL Electric, Volvo Buses continues to raise the bar with the BZL’s premium thermal management system which ensures maximum safety and reliability.

Volvo Bus Australia has prioritized embedding comprehensive safety measures directly into Volvo BZL Electric’s DNA.

In addition to traditional Volvo Bus vehicle safety features, the electric BZL has been designed to integrate sophisticated technical safety measures specific to high-voltage systems via Volvo’s thermal management system.

The Volvo BZL Electric thermal management system incorporates a multi-layered safety system to ensure safe and reliable operation, including a comprehensive protection system in the following areas:

Software, monitoring and design

Several protection systems monitored by on-board vehicle systems and software that ensure:

  • All electronic control units (ECU) continuously monitor abnormal conditions, including temperature
  • Hazardous Voltage Isolation Loop (HVIL)
  • Robust cable construction

Temperature sensors on key components

    • Activation of the fire alarm if necessary
    • Power off or shutdown due to high temperature, component or performance

General operating temperatures

    • Lower overall operating temperatures due to lack of combustion engine and high temperature elements <60°C
    • Less risk of high temperature ignition source for coolant leaks

These components of BZL Electric’s thermal management system are essential to Volvo’s clear commitment to zero accident safety by providing a comprehensive protection system to mitigate the risks associated with operating an electric bus.

When it comes to passive protection, Volvo’s Energy Storage System (ESS) plays a crucial role in protecting the battery in the unlikely event of a malfunction.

To achieve this, BZL Electric’s ESS deploys multiple layers of passive space security systems in cell design, short circuit protection, disconnect measures, battery management systems, overall battery pack, thermal management control and abuse/crash protection to ensure maximum battery safety.


RELATED ARTICLE: Volvo looks beyond the bus in promoting sustainability


Experts have recognized that the best systems have multiple “layers” of security, but most EV manufacturers have one or two defensive lines. Volvo has worked extensively to develop nine layers of safety ranging from chemical choice to mechanical protection to ensure overall ESS safety, especially but not limited to thermal runaway.

For the Volvo ESS, the battery cell (single cell) itself is designed to automatically shut off in the event of a thermal issue, further reducing the risk of a single cell issue spreading to other parts of the Volvo ESS. battery and potential runaway events, providing key elements of protection and safety.

BZL Electric’s HVIL is an integral part of this system by ensuring that high voltage is safely contained within the Energy Storage System (ESS) whenever access is required to the vehicle’s high voltage system.

“Although we now have ADR regulations and guidelines for electric commercial vehicles, simply meeting the requirements in Australia has never been our approach,” says Mitch Peden, Managing Director of Volvo Buses Australia.

“Using the highest global standards and a focus on safety is part of Volvo’s DNA and we are committed to innovation and delivering the safest and most efficient technology across our range. Many Much work has gone into designing and testing the complete thermal management of our BZL Electric.System and we are pleased to offer a system that goes beyond industry standards.

“We know that our business partners expect Volvo to consistently deliver the highest safety standards in the market with our products and services. Safety is something Volvo will never compromise on, and our thermal management system is proof of that.

As electric vehicles began to take hold, many entrepreneurs thought that powering them could be a source of income. But they faced a strange financial hurdle. The refueler pays the utility for the electricity, but cannot ask the driver to share the cost. Thus, companies have found workarounds. Some providers charged for time spent plugged in. Others charged session fees. (Until two years ago, Tesla Inc., the market leader in electric vehicles, let many of its drivers fill up for free at its Supercharger stations.) Neither strategy reflected the true cost, but it was a beginning. The companies needed a change in the law – an exemption that would allow, for the first time, someone other than a power company to sell electricity.

Delia Meier, senior vice president of Iowa 80, a chain of truck stops, has taken a leadership position in Iowa to open the market to “charge-to-charge,” as it’s sometimes called. “There’s a lot of paperwork, a lot of stuff that probably doesn’t make sense,” she said. The Iowa Utilities Board met infrequently and moved slowly. Meier’s regional utility, Alliant Energy, would request additional hearings and submit objections at the last minute. To Meier, it seemed the utility was leading a passive, faceless resistance, using its unparalleled expertise before the utility board to wear down anyone who challenged its monopoly status.

“All the time it seemed like people agreed with us,” Meier said. “Then (the council) would hold a hearing and decide not to do anything about it. It went on and on and on. »

In a statement to POLITICO’s E&E News, Alliant said, “We are excited to be at the forefront of electrification efforts and working hard to understand and meet the needs of our customers.”

In 2019, after a three-year process, Iowa relaxed its rules so stations like Iowa 80 could charge customers any price for electric fuel, just like gasoline. Most states have done the same. The main lobbyists who forced the issue were not gas stations, but new companies whose bread and butter were charging stations – EVgo Inc., ChargePoint Holdings Inc. and, of course, Tesla. Alongside them were environmental groups like the Natural Resources Defense Council, which argued that a transition to electric vehicles – needed to stave off the climate crisis – could not happen without a financial incentive to sell fuel electricity to conductors. Today, only seven states still regulate electric vehicle charging as the exclusive domain of the power company.

But even with the freedom to charge customers what they want, gas station owners still think the utility has stacked the odds against them.

One reason is that some utilities also own and operate charging stations. They do it with their taxpayers’ money, in plans approved by regulators. Typically, this happens sparingly and in areas avoided by private industry. But convenience store owners fear the utility as a competitor because the utility has a state-allocated profit built into every investment it makes. They worry that this padding could lead the utility to set a new floor for fuel prices that the gas station cannot match.

Angela Holland, president of the Georgia Association of Convenience Stores, explained it this way to Georgian lawmakers last year. Its 6,500 members “must use electricity from a single utility. If this same electricity supplier is authorized to provide electricity refueling stations… by taking zero capital risk as the private sector will, they will create and maintain a monopoly in this market.

Gas station owners say their resistance to the power company is not an effort to slow the transition away from their flagship product. “We don’t have any more commitment to fossil fuels than we do to Snickers bars,” said Brian Young, owner of a gas station chain in eastern Alabama. Rather, the prospect of installing a charging station is extremely expensive.

Convenience stores make tiny profits on gasoline and diesel. “Whether we sell at a dollar or four dollars,” Young said, “we always make 14 cents.” In this low-margin world, a fast charger is a monster investment. Hardware can cost $150,000 or more, according to a 2019 study by think tank RMI. It’s an invigorating risk, especially since no one knows exactly where future EV drivers will want to fuel up.

“Honestly, I dread it, but maybe there’s an upside,” Bob Bajwa, a gas station owner in Ritzville, Wash., said of the prospect of switching to electric vehicles. He is somewhat optimistic given his personal experience. Bajwa already has a charging station — installed on its property in 2015 by charging provider EVgo — which receives only an occasional customer and generates almost no revenue.

Convenience stores know they are overwhelmed. It’s hard to imagine a future without a power grid, but a future without gas stations can be predicted quite easily. Refuelers cannot overturn the utility as a linchpin. But a crucial question remains: how much will the fuel cost?
