After the chip crisis, the next test of the automotive industry may be battery shortage

In today’s news, SVolt Chairman Yang Hongxin said in an interview with Bloomberg: “When the chip shortage ends, the main supply shortage faced by the automobile manufacturing industry will be batteries. In the next few years, battery production capacity It will be even more tight due to the cycle required for capacity expansion."

Citing Bloomberg NEF's annual new energy outlook report released on Wednesday, it is mentioned that in 2030, the demand for lithium batteries for transportation and energy storage will surge to 5.9 terawatt-hours (5900 GWH) per year, which puts tremendous pressure on the supply chain.

Researchers are improving computer vision and deep learning capabilities

For vehicles based on cameras to achieve autonomous driving, rainy days are undoubtedly a big challenge. In rainy days, images may be affected by rain streaks or rain accumulation. But this problem may be resolved in the near future.

According to foreign media reports, researchers at Yale-National University of Singapore College have developed two new computer vision and deep learning methods that can extract more accurate data from videos that are affected by environmental factors such as rain and night conditions.

The first study focused on increasing brightness while suppressing noise and light effects, such as glare, halo, and flooding, to create clear night images. The second study introduces a frame alignment method, which is not affected by rain streaks and obtains better visual information. Rain streaks usually appear randomly in different frames.

Porsche 911 Turbo S "Off-Road Custom Edition"-Marsien

The Gemballa refitting factory specializing in remodeling Porsche models was founded in 1981. After the death of its founder Uwe Gemballa, his son Marc Philipp Gemballa established a new refitting factory called Marc Philipp Gemballa GmbH.

The tuning factory recently released their first sports car, the Marsien.

This Marsien is based on the 992-generation 911 Turbo S. With the help of another modification brand, RUF, the original 3.8L twin-turbo horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine has increased its horsepower from 650 to 750. Or after swiping the ECU, it can still reach 830 hp.

It is said that Marsien was inspired by the legendary 1986 rally car Porsche 959 Paris-Dakar. In fact, the name Marsien means "Mars" in French.

When the car was in the testing phase, the test site was in the Al Faya desert in Arabia for related tests, and the terrain of the Al Faya desert was like Mars, which gave the car its name.

Wait a minute, why would a 911 be tested in the desert? Unlike the general 911, Marsien is an "off-road customized version" of the 911.

Marsien uses a full carbon fiber body, and the chassis suspension uses an air suspension customized by KW Automotive. The driver can change the height of the body from the road mode of 120mm to the off-road mode of 250mm by just pressing a button. In addition, this car also has a variety of driving modes such as gravel, mud, sand, and snow.

Currently, Marsien is limited to 40 vehicles worldwide.
