New sensor technology for e-vehicle batteries

Engineers have developed a new concept for current and voltage sensors for batteries that might become particularly relevant for electric vehicles (EV). An EV battery is made up of individual blocks, each of which contain up to twelve cells. Typically, each cell is monitored by its own voltage sensor. The new system requires only one single voltage sensor, thus reducing overall weight and costs.
