After a short introduction of Fraunhofer IPA, the author will use the example of electric vehicles (EV) to point out the importance of energy efficient technologies for this application. Probably more then any other application EV will need energy efficient technologies to enable long distance drives and a reasonable comfort. The author will focus on issues such as reduced friction and weight, as weil as reduced complexity using intelligent surfaces and smart materials. The author will bring real life problems and new materials into one context and discuss the benefits and draw backs of the technology.
