The stipends were given in recognition of research innovation and thesis work in the field of vehicle technology.

Battery architecture innovation awarded 15 000 euros

Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow Shashank Arora from the Department of Mechanical Engineering received a 15 000 euro stipend for a battery architecture-related innovation, which makes use of a cooling system built into the core elements of a battery. The innovation has received much attention and could have an effect on the technological solutions used today. A patent application has been submitted for the innovation.

Arora's research is timely and the innovation takes advantage of novel production methods. It forms a basis for new initiatives that could be highly influential in developing the production capabilities of the vehicle manufacturing industry.

10 000 euros for reducing the energy consumption of city buses

Postdoctoral Researcher Klaus Kivekäs of the Department of Mechanical Engineering studied in his doctoral thesis the reduction of city bus energy consumption, finding workable and practical methods for saving energy. The work is current, offering ways for developing the urban traffic of today.

The results of the doctoral research are applicable for optimising the energy efficiency of vehicles. As the study includes a comparison of different energy options, its results can be applied widely in Finnish vehicle manufacturing, with effects possibly reaching as far as city bus route design.
