Description

In this "TechKnow" episode, Phil Torres visits the Toyota Technical Center in California to take a spin in Toyota's brand new HFCV and learn about the future of hydrogen fuel powered cars. The fuel you pump into these cars is hydrogen gas. The energy is created in the fuel cell by reacting the hydrogen in the tanks with oxygen from the air over what is called a “proton exchange membrane” and the end result is electricity and water. Water is made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom (hence H­­2O) and is the only remnant from this fuel-air interaction. Correspondent Shini Somara visits Ann Arbor, Michigan to explore V2V technology, a wi-fi type system that will allow every vehicle on the road to “talk” to each other.
