Back in 1960, when I was a young EE, I was told then there was a great more energy storage capability in a tablespoon of gasoline than in a typical car lead acid battery.
Question to anyone out there. Where are we now as to the gasoline tablespoon vs the car lead acid battery?
To me that is the bottom line as to 100% electric cars ---- the batteries. So far I am for the hybrid approach for electric cars.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
