Aurora
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.

Welcome To Flow – The Clever Energy Alternative
Uses a working fluid with a scroll expander turbine (for the generator) and post-expansion heat exchanger for hot water. So it's directly boiling the working fluid itself, which is closed loop. How that would compare to a fuelcell combustor microturbine generator with exhaust gas heat recovery to heat water for CHP is probably one of cost.

Clarion Labs rotary piston generator
See US patent application 20110133486 for the integrated generator in the wankel rotor. They claim to use the integrated generator to fiddle with piston rotation timing to improve efficiency (loiter at top dead center?), no permanent magnets due to an inductive layout,and ceramic apex seals.

Towards a ‘proton flow battery’: Investigation of a reversible PEM fuel cell with integrated metal-hydride hydrogen storage
Now that's smart, integrating a metal hydride hydrogen sponge as an electrode in a PEM fuel cell to skip a step. Though it turns the setup essentially into a closed cycle battery, fixed to the capacity of the metal hydride electrode's internal storage capacity, hence the "battery" nomenclature.

A ‘Magic Box’ For Your Passivhaus | GreenBuildingAdvisor.com
The Magic Box, AKA heavily integrated thermal compnents for homes such that heat/cold can be used/reused effectively, from HVAC to hot water heaters and boilers for in floor heating. Most of the focus here is heat recovery ventilators, which recover heat energy from hot exhaust air to preheat/heat the evaporator coil of a heat pump. Too bad hardly anyone is selling them.

CPT's auto exhaust gas energy recovery system
I dunno, if you are committing to an electric supercharger and an electric turbogenerator, at some point you have to ask yourself how much of advantage having a detonation combustion chamber and the associated piston gear squeezed between the two really is. Why not jump up to a gas turbine burning diesel like a Capstone microturbine, and store excess energy in a flywheel/supercap/battery? Also, conceptually similar to the Turbodyne Dynacharger, which put a generator on the same shaft as a regular turbocharger, which meant excess shaft power from the turbo could be dumped into the motor generator (either to charge a battery, or run an electric braking system for the turbo) which means you could potentially eliminate the wastegate on a turbo.
