Taking urban transport to the NXT level – a new concept from Scania | Scania Group
They had a the interesting idea of moving from a skateboard underbody chassis for an electric vehicle, to dual independent axle modules that resembles those hoverboard toys. Not clear if the modular body houses the main battery pack or not.

They acquired Blackmore, who were mainly developing LIDAR using photonic integrated circuits with frequency modulated continuous wave ranging capability with integrated velocity measurement as well, so you can tell a far object is also a fast mover (like an oncoming car). FMCW is also low power, so it doesn't burn out PIC's like normal high power short burst LIDAR.

RK Transportation | Technology. Driven.
A not entirely insane idea of using a very small electric motor as a replacement for crankshaft flywheels in piston engines. The idea being instead of using rotor inertia in a conventional flywheel for smoothing, use a small electric motor that bursts torque when the piston is at top or bottom dead center to smooth out the output torque. This is not a full (parallel?) hybrid implementation, more like some might call a mild hybrid.

Rplate - Reviver Auto
A CAN bus controlled e-ink license plate. Apparently has RF and GPS/IMU sensors. The general idea is rather than putting on stickers/decals every year, have the necessary information be digital and auto-updated. Same for change of ownership. Wonder if can regularly change the shown information to something like a barcode or QRcode about the vehicle? Apparently it can also be used to turn the license plate into a billboard when parked. There's a geo-fence feature, I guess to show people when a car is beyond a geo-fence and should be reported?

ClearMotion - Home
Really active suspension, similar to the telescopic spoke smartwheels in Snowcrash, where active sensors map upcoming road surfaces and plan suspension travel to maximize adhesion. Perhaps now a logical consequence of autonomous driving sensor technology, which must map the local road environment anyways?

Porsche Classic supplies classic parts from a 3D printer
Long tail of logistics support for spares of low production vehicles is always a pain. But with SLM and a good CAD library, most parts can probably be brought back to life on demand, cutting out warehouse costs for spares (and shipping if done closer to the customer)

Ohm - The car battery is finally evolving
Supercap battery for cars. Lower total storage, so engine off accessory usage is limited. But, it is smart enough to preserve supercap charge to start the engine. So, if you want a lighter battery, don't use other electronics much when the engine is stopped, and are possibly a cheapskate, this might be appealing.
