Hyperion Unveils Mobile Station to Solve EV Infrastructure Puzzle

Published

on

Company will rollout Hyper:Fuel Stations™ for Hydrogen & Battery Vehicles.

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Hyperion Motors, Inc., a hydrogen technology company, announced the launch of its Hyper:Fuel Mobile Stations™, capable of refueling both hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and battery electric vehicles (BEVs). The mobilized refueling station will be available across the nation, and can be easily deployed and redeployed when driving patterns change. Previously, Hyperion revealed its 1,000-mile range XP-1 in 2020 to demonstrate the benefits of hydrogen-ion storage over lithium-ion. Utilizing hydrogen-ion storage technology, Hyper:Fuel Mobile Stations™ address a primary challenge facing many commercial hydrogen trucks and battery cars on the road today: refueling and recharging infrastructure.

Investment into infrastructure buildout is plagued and delayed by numerous issues, including site selection, construction costs, and others. Many experts believe that this lack of refueling, and recharging infrastructure is the largest barrier to FCEV and BEV adoption. Hyper:Fuel Mobile Stations™ can travel to and from existing gas stations, big box stores, and other high-traffic locations to meet real-time demand.

Hyperion’s mobilized station contains a hydrogen dispenser for FCEVs and an optional DC fast-charger for BEVs. This enables it to service two separate vehicle segments simultaneously at lower cost and risk compared with permanently installed charging stations or hydrogen dispensers. FCEV customers can refuel in 5 minutes and most BEV customers can recharge 80% of their battery in under 20 minutes. 

Hyper:Fuel Mobile Stations™ can be equipped to produce hydrogen on-site via water electrolysis. This decentralized approach means it can generate green hydrogen from the sun when combined with solar. On-site fuel generation is clean, green, and can dramatically increase station uptime—another major hurdle for hydrogen stations today. The mobilized station can be quickly deployed without long construction delays, opening new markets across the USA for automakers to increase FCEV and BEV sales.

Internal systems will include NASA and Shell GameChanger technologies to boost power and increase refueling efficiency. The roof is tiled with solar-tracking photovoltaic panels to maximize direct sunlight. Customers will experience state-of-the-art touch screen controls, contactless payment, and a self-sanitizing nozzle utilizing UV light.

In addition to vehicles, Hyper:Fuel Mobile Stations™ are designed to provide electricity as stationary power sources. By storing electrons for much longer lengths of time than is possible for batteries, the mobilized station can provide backup power across seasons to improve grid resiliency during weather emergencies or grid failures.

When asked why Hyperion undertook this challenge, CEO Angelo Kafantaris responded, “Todays’ energy infrastructure is pushed to its absolute limit. The industry needed a versatile, scalable solution to power our growing needs.” Hyper:Fuel Mobile Stations™ will be manufactured at the company’s 65-acre manufacturing HQ in Columbus, OH. Hyperion will roll out these stations across the United States to form a dynamic Hyper:Fuel Network™ with its partners starting in 2023.

HONG KONG, Dec. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — HashKey Digital Asset Group (“HashKey” or “The Group”) and SEBA Bank AG (“SEBA Bank”) have today announced a new strategic partnership that will see both financial services groups leverage their digital asset service offerings as well as custody and asset management products to accelerate the institutional adoption of digital assets in Hong Kong and in Switzerland.

The strategic partnership, formalised through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), will see HashKey become SEBA Bank’s preferred digital asset trading and market development partner in Hong Kong, while SEBA Bank will be the banking partner of choice for HashKey in Switzerland. Together, HashKey and SEBA Bank will endeavour to bring to market reliable and differentiated solutions and avenues for institutional and professional investors who are seeking to take exposure in the digital asset ecosystem. The two groups are also committed to complying with and embracing the regulatory frameworks of their respective jurisdictions with the highest standards of compliance, Know-Your-Customer and Anti-Money Laundering policies and measures.

SEBA Bank is a leading crypto bank in Switzerland having a suite of fully regulated banking and investment services including trading, structured products, bank accounts, credit, custody and staking. By partnering with HashKey, SEBA Bank will strengthen its offering to its institutional clients and partners and solidify its position as a global crypto banking leader, complementing its existing licenses and branches in Switzerland and Abu Dhabi.

HashKey Group, through its subsidiary Hash Blockchain Limited (“HBL”), was recently granted approval from the Securities and Futures Commission (“SFC”) of Hong Kong to operate a virtual asset trading platform, becoming only the second company in Hong Kong licensed to provide regulated automated trading services for professional investors in respect of virtual assets. In accordance with the regulatory framework set out by the SFC, HashKey’s virtual asset trading platform, named HashKey PRO, is built to ensure the highest level of client asset protection, in which client assets are segregated and held in custody by HashKey Custody Services Limited, a holder of a Trust or Company Service Provider licence in Hong Kong.

Franz Bergmueller, Group CEO of SEBA Bank, commented, “With a supportive regulatory framework, Hong Kong is a leading jurisdiction globally in the licensing provision of crypto products and services. It is important that the SEBA group becomes part of this ecosystem as a trusted, secure and transparent counterparty in this regulated crypto environment. We’re proud to partner with Hashkey to establish and strengthen our presence in this critical market. As a leading provider of digital asset financial services in the Asian markets, HashKey will play an important role in expanding our presence and network in the region.”

Merging HashKey’s ecosystem of digital asset services along with SEBA Bank’s cutting-edge digital banking and finance infrastructure will allow us to offer to our clients the most secure and seamless gateway into the new digital economy.”

Published

on

By

Sunbird is a new messaging app that gives Android users a fully featured iMessage and the ability to unify the world’s most popular messaging apps in one app inbox.

NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Sunbird Messaging app has launched its closed beta community. The app is the first and only fully featured “iMessage for Android” app that only requires your Android phone. (No personal server, Apple device, or desktop software is required.)

 

We’ve solved 14 years of communications challenges associated with Android messaging…By inventing a new technology…

With Sunbird, there are no more green bubbles. Users get security (encryption), internet messaging, full-quality media, iMessage group chats, reactions/tap backs, live-typing, and read receipts, with plans to add new features regularly.

Android users can join the “early bird” list to be the first to receive an invitation to access the Sunbird beta user group. Sunbird will roll out invitations in phases to join the closed beta user group beginning in late 2022.

Sunbird offers an authentic unified messaging experience. The beta launch will include the ability to communicate securely with iMessage, SMS/MMS, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger—with more message app types added over the coming months.

“We’ve solved 14 years of communications challenges associated with Android messaging,” states Danny Mizrahi, CEO, and Founder of Sunbird Messaging. “By inventing new technology that gives Android users iMessage on Android, one can enjoy the most popular functions and features uniting the top messaging apps that people use every day.

Android users can join the early bird invitation list at sunbirdapp.com. The product development roadmap is also shared there, including timelines of future releases and updates to the app: Telegram, RCS, Instagram Direct Messaging, Slack, Signal, Discord, and many more.

“Another benefit to the Sunbird app is it helps to solve bullying issues that have historically come from the green and blue chat bubbles,” says Mizrahi. “A January 2022 WSJ article headline included …Teens Dread the Green Text Bubble. With the Sunbird app, we want to help end this issue among teens and adults,” Mizrahi adds.

New Driver Training Developed at Cincinnati Children’s Keeps Teens with ADHD Safer Behind the Wheel

Integrated Desktop and Simulator Training Reduced Crash Risk by 40%

CINCINNATI, Dec. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Roadways can be a dangerous place for teen drivers, even more so for those diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This is because those with ADHD may have difficulty sustaining visual attention to the roadway, especially when distracted.

“This training improves attention, reduces crash risk, and has the potential to save lives.” — Jeff Epstein, PhD

Now, an ADHD driver’s training program developed at Cincinnati Children’s reports success at reducing the frequency of long, distracted glances away from the road that often occur among youth with ADHD. Details were published December 1, 2022, in The New England Journal of Medicine.

“This training improves teen drivers’ attention to the roadway, reduces crash risk and has the potential to save lives,” says the study’s principal investigator Jeff Epstein, PhD, a pediatric psychologist with the Division of Behavioral Medicine & Clinical Psychology at Cincinnati Children’s.

Trainees Had Fewer Crashes/Near-Crashes

The study details outcomes of the FOCAL+ training program, which expands upon a desktop-based software platform called FOcused Concentration and Attention Learning (FOCAL). This study enrolled 152 teen drivers with ADHD, aged 16-19, and split them into two groups. The 76 teens assigned to FOCAL+ participated in multiple training sessions that involved wearing special eye-tracking monitors that detect “long” glances (2 seconds or more) away from the roadway during simulated driving.

When long glances away from the road occurred while drivers were performing secondary tasks in the simulator (i.e., searching for a visual symbol on the driving console), an alarm sounded. The 76 teen drivers assigned to the control group learned about driver safety and then, like the FOCAL+ drivers, participated in multiple training sessions while wearing an eye tracker which required them to perform the same secondary task as the FOCAL+ group. However, control drivers did not get alerts when they glanced away from the road for too long.

One month after training, teens in the control group had 28.05 long glances during driving simulation per drive compared to just 16.52 long glances for the FOCAL+ group—a 41% difference. Six months later, both groups slightly improved at avoiding long glances, but those who received the FOCAL+ training maintained a 42% edge. The study also reports that non-trained drivers were more variable than trained ones in their lane position–a driving indicator related to crash risk.

To measure the impact of the training on real-world driving, drivers in both groups had an eye-tracking camera attached to the windshield in their vehicles for a year. Teens who received FOCAL+ training had fewer long-glances and crashes and near crashes than the control group. In fact, there were 40% fewer crashes and near crashes among the FOCAL+ trained group (3.4%) than the control group (5.6%). None of the crashes involved fatalities.

These findings suggest teens with ADHD were able to generalize trained skills to real-life settings, Epstein says. 

Next Steps

As a result of the success of the study, Cincinnati Children’s is now offering this training to teens with ADHD. The five-session program will cost $250. Those interested in participating can call 513-636-8107 or visit the website to see if they or their teen qualify.

“Our ultimate goal is to make this training available to all teen drivers with ADHD,” said Epstein. “The hope is to reduce teen driving injuries and fatalities and to provide parents with added comfort about their teen driver’s safety.”

Epstein notes that the sample of drivers in this study was limited to one geographic region and results may not be the same for drivers in other regions. But the results justify pursuing the programs further. The team plans to apply for grants to further investigate program efficacy. 

The program founders also are studying ways to expand the program to other ADHD care providers, and perhaps other driving instruction providers. 

The challenges ahead include scaling up the program and finding supporting sponsors.
