Audi Says Its Electromechanical Dampers Will Add More Efficiency to 48-Volt Systems

By Jon LeSage Audi will be using kinetic energy generated when driving over bumps on the road to put more energy and fuel efficiency back into new 48-volt electrical systems.
As Audi follows the auto industry trend to roll out new 48-volt models to improve fuel economy, its new technology, which it calls eROT, could give it a competitive edge. Using electromechanical rotary dampers can give the driver better ride control while generating more energy that will be stored in the battery, Audi says.
“Every pothole, every bump, every curve induces kinetic energy in the car. Today’s dampers absorb this energy, which is lost in
