Telstra, in partnership with Cohda Wireless, has successfully trialled Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) technology over Telstra’s 4G network in South Australia, a pivotal first step in developing Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) technology.
Examples of V2X include vehicles talking to infrastructure (such as traffic lights), vehicles talking to other vehicles, and vehicles talking to vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians.
The use and development of V2X communications will enable the creation of intelligent transport systems that may allow more efficient use of road infrastructure, better traffic management (reduced congestion) and, in the future, coordinated and safe autonomous vehicle operation.
Most importantly, it will likely lead to increased safety for road users as the impact of human error can be minimised as vehicles will be able to communicate and react to their surroundings.
Australian battery company Redflow Ltd today announces that its new ZCell battery is compatible with the SP PRO battery inverter from Melbourne-based electronics manufacturer Selectronic Australia.
ZCell is a 10 kilowatt hour (kWh) zinc-bromine flow battery that can ‘timeshift’ solar power from day to night, store off-peak power for peak demand periods and support off-grid systems. Redflow last month announced its first ZCell installers, providing national coverage for quoting and installing ZCell-based energy storage systems.
Redflow undertook extensive testing of the Selectronic SP PRO battery inverter at its Adelaide battery integration and testing lab to ensure it works with ZCell, a process simplified by the purpose-built ZCell battery management system (BMS).
Selectronic is a 52-year-old Australian company that designs and manufactures battery inverters which are sold in Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. The SP PRO is a smart multi-mode inverter that suits both off-grid and solar hybrid (grid-connect) installations for residential, commercial and industrial projects.
Australian battery company Redflow Limited has received a major order for 48 ZCell batteries, worth about $600,000, from Melbourne-based energy system installer Standard Solar.
Standard Solar, which supports clients nationally from its head office at Seaford, Victoria, was one of the first seven ZCell installation companies announced by Redflow last week. Redflow will start delivering the first batteries for this order during the next two weeks.
Now available in Australia,ZCell is a 10 kilowatt hour (kWh) zinc-bromine flow battery that can ‘timeshift’ solar power from day to night, store off-peak power for peak demand periods and support off-grid systems. Redflow received its first shipment of batteries for ZCell in Australia this month.
Standard Solar Chief Technology Officer James Graham said his company had already sold about half the ZCells from this initial order. “We have sold ZCells to customers ranging from a government agency and an educational institution to businesses and home users,” he said.

Shiseido turned to Centrify because it needed a modern authentication infrastructure that could support the company’s new cloud initiative.
Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats, today announced that Centrify Identity Service delivers day one support for the just-released macOS Sierra operating system for Macs.
Centrify Identity Service also recently released day one support for iOS 10, allowing organisations to confidently adopt the latest Apple technology and address enterprise mobility and BYOD challenges. This continues Centrify’s long-standing track record of delivering day one support for macOS and iOS releases.
As cloud application adoption continues to grow, so too does the desire to access those apps from any Apple device—including Macs, iPhones and iPads. Today, the onus is on IT to deliver secure access to applications from any device. Centrify customers can rest assured that as users upgrade to the new macOS Sierra and iOS 10 releases, Centrify Identity Service will have them covered.
