Fujitsu today announced the development of a new technology for simulating magnetization reversal and has used the K computer to perform huge calculations to successfully conduct the world’s first simulation of the magnetization-reversal process in a permanent magnet. This opens up new possibilities in the manufacture of electric motors, generators and other devices without relying on heavy rare earth elements.The process of magnetization reversal has been a subject of scientific study, but the huge volume of calculations required to accurately model magnetic materials has made it difficult to simulate that process.
On August 11th Honda's European subsidiary, Honda Motor Europe Ltd, revealed that the production version of the Civic Tourer will be available in two engine varieties.
Being green in Northeast Mississippi got a lot easier today as dozens of community members and citizens joined Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Mississippi, Inc.

For three days from November 9 to 11, 2012, Honda held a press conference, named “Honda Meeting 2012”, in Japan to announce new automobile technologies. At the conference, Honda unveiled a series of new technologies that will power the next generation of Honda automobiles, including three new hybrid systems for small, medium, and large-size vehicles and a new clean diesel engine. Prototypes equipped with the new technologies were brought to the conference for a test-driving event on a test course at the Automobile R&D Center in Tochigi, the conference venue.
