  • Nanoparticles: how small must we measure?

    20 March 2017

    Improving urban air quality is the major impetus for a continuing push towards monitoring and regulating particle emissions. Now attention is extending to include particles significantly below the threshold of current regulation, approaching the molecular range – and Ricardo is spearheading some of the latest research in this area as well as helping industry comply with existing and future regulation.

    In the continuing endeavour to control harmful emissions from motor vehicles, the measurement of particle numbers (PN) is now firmly a part of the European regulatory framework. The introduction of PN standards followed the pioneering work carried out by Ricardo ...

  • Full-on mild

    04 November 2016

    The Ricardo-led 48-Volt ADEPT project shows how intelligent electrification can deliver fuel and CO2 savings equivalent to full-hybrid capability. What is more, the concept’s low-cost mild hybrid architecture is adaptable for diesel, gasoline or alternative-fuelled powertrains, as Anthony Smith reports.

    In the almost twenty years since the first mass-produced hybrid car – the first-generation Toyota Prius – rolled off the production line, the world has become used to the concept of electrification improving the fuel-efficiency of the combustion engine powertrain. In addition to such ‘full’ hybrids, consumers have also become accustomed to the so-called ‘mild’ hybrid products where a more modest ...
