This is how the Gasoline Pump Knows When the Tank is Full

This is how the Gasoline Pump Knows When the Tank is Full

Innovation
A single click - and the gasoline stops flowing. A well-coordinated system ensures that the petrol pump is switched off when the tank is full, so that no dangerous situations arise when filling your car. The petrol station's pump system is based on the so-called venturi effect, which is caused by the pressure drop in a liquid as it flows from a larger pipe to a smaller one. The pressure drop creates a suction, which the gasoline pump uses as a safety device. By passing the gasoline through a constriction in the handle, a suction effect is obtained which draws air through a small tube, which opens at the end of the handle which is inserted into the car. Electronic mechanism would be fatal Once you start refueling, the air flows freely back through the small tube and allows yo...

Mercedes Electric Car EQS Beats Everyone’s Fingers

Mercedes Electric Car EQS Beats Everyone’s Fingers

Innovation
Vision EQS is certainly a concept, but the promised range of 700 km can give Mercedes a whole new position. The electric car can be charged to 80 percent in less than 20 minutes. With 469 hp, 0-100 km / h is cut in 4.5 seconds. To become a leader in the electrified segment, Mercedes will invest € 11 billion over the next few years. But when the manufacturer launched its first electric suv 2018, EQC made many disappointed. Among them were Ny Teknik's reporter who thought the model was reasonable and lacked a performance that could challenge Tesla. But now Mercedes shows where the cabinet should stand. At the Frankfurt fair, the supercar Vision EQS was unveiled - and if the concept reflects what the manufacturer has in the coat sleeve, Daimler moves forward its positions vis-à-vis its

BMW’s Concept 4 – Which Will Be The New Electric Car i4

Innovation
A concept is a concept. But BMW is clear that the vehicle presented in Frankfurt will eventually form the basis of the upcoming electric car i4. BMW will have five electric cars in the program by 2021 and one of them will be i4. Exactly how it will look we do not yet know, but at the Frankfurt salon one premiered a concept vehicle which according to new CEO Oliver Zipse is the "start" of what will be i4 that will start production in 2021. The vehicle is called Concept 4 and will also form the basis of the upcoming 4 Series. The daring design with long wheelbase and short overhangs up there has received mixed reception and it hurts to see which elements BMW chooses to keep or alternate tone down. One million sold electric vehicles in 2023 BMW's goal is to have sold one million elect...

Google Confirms Breakthrough of Quantum Supremacy

Innovation
Researchers affiliated with the company Google have performed the first truly advanced quantum calculation. In the journal Nature, they demonstrate a calculation that took 200 seconds, but which for a "regular" supercomputer had taken 10,000 years to perform. This is, according to Nature magazine, the first time quantum supremacy has been shown, that is, when a quantum computer has proven to be far superior to an ordinary supercomputer. For according to the research that is now presented, the researchers have managed to perform such a "superior" calculation. Admittedly, the quantum computer took just over three minutes or 200 seconds, but for a regular supercomputer it would have taken 10,000 years to complete. MIT: "Notable achievement" "This demonstration of quantum superiority over...

BMW is Focusing on Efficiency Instead of Large Batteries

Innovation
Batteries are expensive, so instead of inserting large-sized units into their electric cars, BMW chooses a different track. Their models should have the same range as their competitors - but this is due to higher efficiency. German BMW currently has an electric car, I3, out on the market. But the manufacturer has invested heavily in electrification and by 2023, up to twelve new electric cars will be launched. And a noble mark for these should be efficiency. First up is the Model IX3, which starts producing after the turn of the year. Now, BMW reveals that this crossover should have a range of over 440 km (WLTP) from a battery with a net capacity of 74 kWh.

Middle-Aged Entrepreneurs Behind Successful Companies

Middle-Aged Entrepreneurs Behind Successful Companies

Innovation
Young entrepreneurs dominate the leaderboards of growing start ups, but research shows that the most successful entrepreneurs are rather middle-aged. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg were in their twenties when they launched their companies, and over the last ten years many start-up founders in their thirties have won awards and figures on top charts. It is therefore easy to believe that most successful entrepreneurs are young. But behind the media image is another pattern, according to research described in the Harvard Business Review. Four US researchers have analyzed the age of all corporate founders in the United States in recent years. The results show that the average age at start-up is 42 years. But not all new companies have the ambition to become big. To be a...
