Makers of Battery Operated Electric Vehicles (BEV) are always up against the extreme heat gain intrinsic to battery operation. Without an effective electronics cooling technology of some type, battery life is short-lived. Any and all designs for electronics cooling in turn rely on coolant system integrity.
Hydrogen powered electric vehicles must similarly safeguard the integrity of the fuel cell components operating at high pressures by mastering leak-proof sealing technologies. Similar to the Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) components of many plug-in hybrid vehicles, leak testing must contend with the real-world high pressure conditions in which components must reliably function.
Add to this alphabet soup of New Energy Vehicles (NEV), the demands that makers of Autonomous Vehicles (AV) face in ensuring absolutely fail-proof package integrity of sealed electronics critical for cameras, radar and lidar technology.
