Hybrid Technology

Normally a “Hybrid” is an offspring of two dissimilar plants or animals, but one must wonder how “Hybrid” is related to Automotive Technology. The US Dept. of Energy defines a hybrid as a type of electric vehicle (HEV) which combines two or more energy conversion technologies (e.g., heat engines, fuel cells, generators, or motors) with one or more energy storage technologies (e.g., fuel, batteries, ultra capacitors, or flywheels).

Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are somewhat as same as today’s day to day automobile; it is different only in one sense that it has two “engines” (sources of power). Today some  companies are using gasoline or diesel internal combustion “heat” engines (or ICEs), a few  are using electricity-generating micro turbines, and a few are using fuel cells.

In today’s gasoline-only vehicles, the ICE is “sized” to the vehicle for peak load demands like accelerating, hill climbing etc. While “pure” battery electric vehicles (BEVs) are considered pollution free, they unfortunately lack extended range, quick recharge, and a charging infrastructure… plus the batteries are heavy. To overcome these obstacles, the lighter, cleaner, more fuel

Helping Your Car Keep Cool In Warmer Weather

Here’s how you can help you car keep cool in the warmer wheather this summer.
Whether it’s a vacation road trip or your daily commute to work, when the temperatures climb higher on the outside, things are also heating up under the hood of your car.

Fortunately, there are several preventative steps you can take to keep your engine running cool. Here are some tips that can help to keep you on the road to safety and convenience.

Check Your Battery
If you have an older vehicle or you’ve had your battery for more than three years, you should have it tested. While it is common to hear of car battery failure during the cold winter months, heat is just as hard on your battery. Warmer temperatures can evaporate battery fluid, causing damage to internal plates and speeding up corrosion.• Top Off Or Change Fluids
Engine fluids are a key component in keeping your car running during the summer months. When fluid levels are low, the cooling effect is decreased and could result in overheating.

Filling Nitrogen Gas is very important in your Vehicle Tires

Have you ever thought that filling of Nitrogen gas in the tyres of your vehicle would help in the maintenance of the tyre? Well, today in this article we will discuss as to why Nitrogen gas is must for our car and bike tyres.

Nitrogen is a chemical substance which is non-flammable in nature. It is a non-toxic gas and belongs to the family of inert gases. The property of inert gases is that they do not fuse with any other gas at any temperature. The fundamental nature of nitrogen is to keep minimum moisture inside the tyres.

Since nitrogen gas is cooler than the naturally compressed air, it makes the car useful in any driving conditions. How come? Since the stress level on the tyre, while moving is less, it means that the tyre remains cool. Due to less temperature, the wear and tear of the tyre are also less.

After long hours of running the temperature of the tyres become very high and has a tendency to burst. So, filling of a tyre with nitrogen gas reduces the chances of explosion by 90%. This becomes a lifesaver on the highway where high-speed and

Older Cars Using New Technologies to Be More Safe in Driving

LIKE many parents of young drivers, Shane Coulter wants his 16-year-old daughter’s car to be as safe as possible when she takes to the road. But like many older vehicles, the 2008 Jeep Wrangler that he bought for her lacked many high-tech safety features, like a rearview camera, that are increasingly found in newer cars.

But that didn’t mean he had to be left out of the technological revolution. Audiovox makes a rearview camera that can be added on.

“I actually put it on my daughter’s Jeep,” said Mr. Coulter, who lives in Warner Robins, Ga.

The rearview camera is one of the most popular of a growing list of add-on devices and services that promise to bring modern features to aging jalopies.

“Lane departure and collision warning, pedestrian warnings, high-beam control and traffic sign recognition — all of those can be retrofitted in a customer’s car,” said Elad Serfaty, a vice president at Mobileye, whose technology is built into a variety of vehicles from BMW, Volvo and other carmakers that offer collision

United States Banned Mobile Phone Usage in the Car

 Americans have been driving cars and using telephones for about a century. But it’s only been in the past five or 10 years that we’ve been combining these two activities. and we’re finding out that it’s a dangerous mix.

A new Nationwide Insurance survey revealed that 45 percent of drivers say they have been hit or nearly hit by another driver using a cell phone. The danger is also evident in the seemingly daily news stories about deadly crashes caused by someone texting behind the wheel.

The government reports that 5,870 people were killed and 515,000 were injured last year in crashes where at least one form of driver distraction was reported. Driver distraction was involved in 16 percent of all fatal crashes in 2008 and was prevalent among young drivers.

Americans are getting fed up with people driving while distracted (DWD). Nationwide’s latest survey found that 80 percent of Americans favor a ban on texting while driving, and more than half say they would support a ban on cell phone use altogether while driving.

“In recent months, the debate about the dangers of DWD has intensified as more and more states consider taking legislative action,” said Bill Windsor, Nationwide’s Safety Officer. “The
