A new report for the Electric Vehicle Council has highlighted the need for boosting the battery-charging network in Australia, in order to enable the country to aim at an increased adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). The report was sponsored by energy technology investor Trevor St Baker.
According to the report, an addition expenditure of $3.2 billion on charging infrastructure is being desired by electric vehicle industry in Australia, so that the number of electric vehicles on the country’s roads can reach 3 million by the year 2030.
With the report emphasizing that public charging infrastructure should be given a boost, the plan is being backed by the NRMA, which has commenced the rollout of $10 million worth of public chargers in NSW. The mentioned expenditure for financing the rollout has come from the funds of the members.
Assuring that the measures to improve charging network and increase EV penetration in Australia will be supported by the government, Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg said that the “revolution” will be backed via the Australian Renewable Energy Agency as well as the Clean Energy Finance Corporation.
Predicting that 1 million electric vehicles will run on Australian roads by 2030, Frydenberg said: “The government stands ready to support the rollout of vehicles, as we are currently doing.”Category: WorldCleanTechLaw
In a move which marks a noteworthy partnership between an automaker and a technology company, luxury carmaker Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) -- owned by Indian conglomerate Tata Motors -- will be using Canada-based BlackBerry’s automotive technology in its vehicles.
According to a last-week, announcement, BlackBerry and Tata Motors have signed a licensing deal, under which BlackBerry’s infotainment and security software will be used in the vehicles manufactured by JLR.
Although the terms of the deal have not been officially disclosed, the automotive technology to be licensed by BlackBerry to JLR will essentially include its QNX software platform and Certicom security technology.
The QNX software platform which is an important of the BlackBerry-JRL licensing deal is essentially a software solution for vehicle systems, advanced driver assist systems as well as telematics, which are compatible with the architectures of the next-generation models of connected and autonomous vehicles.
The Certicom security technology which Blackberry will be licensing to JLR is already being used in millions of cars on the road.
Overall, the deal between JLR and BlackBerry is indicative of the need for vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure and vehicle-to-cloud communications in connected cars of the future, as well as the need for highly advanced security technologies to prevent the potential hacking of the communications data.Tags: Jaguar Land RoverCategory: United KingdomTechCompany News
