According to a news release, direct injection engines have better fuel economy and lower carbon-dioxide emissions than more conventional port fuel injection engines.
Onori said the automotive industry has for some time been conducting its own research, and this will be one of the first where the automotive and academic world collaborate on this initiative.
As it stated in MELBOURNE, May 8 (Xinhua) — Australia’s struggling automotive industry will be given a 100 million Australian dollars (74 million U.S. dollars) boost from the government, with businesses urged to use the funds to expand as carmakers continue to abandon Australian production factories.
A further 5 million Australian dollars will be set aside for investing in university students to ensure the future of the industry.
Australia has got a great future in advanced manufacturing, including the auto sector, Sinodinis said.
The measures will officially be announced when the federal budget is handed down by the Treasurer on Tuesday.
But some of it will also make sure our components supplies can be part of global supply chains,” Sinodinis told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
5G to disrupt automotive industry
As it stated in “The 5G-enabled evolution of the ‘connected car’ will provide opportunities and challenges for the traditional automotive sector players, for content developers, and software and technology firms,” it noted.A connected car is a car that is equipped with internet access, and usually also with a wireless local area network.
SAN FRANCISCO: The 5G technology that is integral to the future of connected cars will enable over $2.4 trillion in total economic output across the automotive sector in 2035, a new study revealed on Thursday.The study released by US chip manufacturer Qualcomm Technologies noted that 5G technology will be at the core of accelerating the benefits of autonomous vehicles It stated that 5G will help increase productivity and sales value, improve environmental quality and reduce traffic collisions and fatality rates.
This allows the car to share internet access with other devices both inside as well as outside the vehicle.Mobile in the 5G era will transition into a true “General Purpose Technology” — a technology that finds economy-wide use, drives complementary innovations in other sectors and becomes a driver of economy-wide innovation and productivity.According to the research, with the 5G technology, there will be acceleration in on-demand transportation services and Mobility-as-a-Service and the shift from conventional modes of ownership of passenger vehicles.However, the 5G-enabled automated car environment would require policy measures, like co-installation of fibre and power as part of road repair works, and lanes and parking spaces for autonomous vehicles.
