ISRO has developed a high energy lithium ion battery that will be used in space crafts. Now ISRO is all ready for a technology transfer of this innovation to the automobile industry for the manufacture of solar hybrid electric cars.
How does it work?
ISRO has developed this high energy lithium battery for a solar panel.
This panel will also control the electronics of the vehicle and will ensure a steady power to provide a smooth ride.
The hurdle that is being faced by ISRO is how to reduce the cost of the car making it affordable to all. The technology was tested at the Vikram Sarabhai space centre (VSSC) in Thiruvananthapuram.
