PHOTOS: Talking Ultracapacitors in the Heart of Detroit, AABC 2016
June 20, 2016 | Marty Mills, Regional Sales Manager – Central Region, Ultracapacitor Products
Last week, I attended the 2016 Advanced Automotive Battery Conference (AABC) in the heart of Detroit, Michigan at Cobo Center with several of my colleagues. The conference attracts international leaders and battery technologists from major automotive OEMs and their suppliers, all attending to discuss key issues impacting the future of advanced vehicles and the technologies—including ultracapacitors—that will power them.
AABC is unlike a traditional trade show environment; conferences were held throughout the week-long event, and Maxwell’s booth was available during the networking breaks and sessions for attendees to view our products and discuss applications with our technical teams.
My colleagues and I enjoyed interacting with technical experts from the major Detroit 3 automotive OEMs and suppliers who stopped at our booth to discuss our technology for their power and energy storage development.
In addition, we also had the opportunity to attend the technical sessions to learn about market trends. As power and energy demand increases for our next-generation vehicles, we will likely see more automotive applications for ultracapacitors adapted into more start-stop systems, active suspension, eTurbo, electronic power steering, autonomous driving and emergency call systems, just to name a few.
