Electric Vehicle Futures @ IDTechEx Show! Silicon Valley - ITREALMS

The IDTechEx Show! ended in Santa Clara, but that was the tip of the iceberg, stressing that the event had a hidden message; the future enabling technologies for electric vehicles (EVs) from buses to cars to miningvehicles, reports ITREALMS.

With its origins in being the world’s largest printed electronics event, it has seamlessly extended to similar technology in sensors, 3D printed electronics and one of this year’s buzzy topics – In-Mold Electronics (IME) - based on screen printing of stretchable conducting patterns for actuators, lighting, sensing and more connected to embedded LED and IC chips. All this is vital to the future e-aircraft, e-boats and more.

Raghu Das, CEO of analyst firm IDTechEx that stages the yearly event said, “As we continue to rapidly grow the event we shall make it more obvious that your customer and your customers’ customers are present. In 2019, we shall have an electric vehicle area in the exhibition. It will major on the new enabling electric vehicle technologies that our current exhibitors have in spades, in addition to adding many more.”

IDTechEx has over 20 new reports on electric vehicles and their technologies and it is currently carrying out consultancy for EV leaders,as well as providing detailed global information through its EV subscription platform. Exhibitors such as ABeetle Taiwan, DuPont USA and TactoTek Finland demonstrated the virtuosity of replacing 50-100 optical, sensing and actuating components with one in-moldsmart material for an overhead control and lighting cluster or dashboard for example. 

"Vital to electric vehicles, this increases reliability and life tenfold, reduces weight and volume up to 90% and makes things work better. An antenna in the surface of a molding performs best, for example. IME is a no-brainer. In prospect is lower up front cost and cost of ownership and vitally “fit-and-forget”.
