Current combustion systems are hampered by either low efficiency (spark ignited gasoline) or high emissions levels (diesel). To achieve high efficiency and low emissions in transportation, an alternate combustion approach shows promise. Using a low cetane fuel (gasoline) in a compression ignition platform (diesel) offers just such a solution if controlled properly. Learn More

Driving through rain and snow after dark is treacherous and stressful because precipitation scatters light from headlights creating flickering distractions. The smart headlight is a high-speed imaging and illumination system that adaptively avoids illuminating precipitation allowing observers to directly see through rain and snow for safer travel.
