Toyota Develops Technology Smart Car to Avoid Collision

Toyota Develops Technology Smart Car to Avoid Collision

Toyota Motor is developing technology driver assistance system that is integrated with artificial intelligence (AI). Development of this technology is targeted to be completed in five years. The usefulness of AI technology can improve vehicle safety by anticipating road accidents. AI will be very useful applied to a car without a driver or an autonomous vehicle.

To develop this advanced technology, Toyota will disburse $ 1 billion in five years. Most of the technology will be used as a vehicle security features. It is a short-term priority.This technology allows the vehicle to think, act, and even take over control of the steering wheel from the driver to maneuver required to avoid a collision. This step is an aggressive effort from Toyota to realize autonomous car in the event the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Technology driver assistance system when it’s already widely used by utilizing image sensors to avoid collisions with other vehicles including a pedestrian who was in one lane. However, the technology developed TRI claimed to be able to make the car more responsive in maneuvering. Intelligence is able to dodge a car suddenly. Basically it’s like a guardian angel who is able to compress the gas, steer, brake, in parallel with the driver.

Toyota Patented Design Flying Car

Toyota Patented Design Flying Car

Out of the mainstream, Toyota apparently is developing a flying car. It is known from the patent publications image ‘Shape Morphing Fuselage For an Aerocar’ proposed Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing North America. Patents issued by the authorities of the United States is known on June 23, 2016. The filing of this patent itself has been carried out since December 19, 2014.

In these patents appear Toyota equipped car body panels that can be arranged flexibly. This is to facilitate when walking on land. Thin body panels that serves to hide the wings in it. In conditions of oncoming cars on the ground, the wings are hidden inside the body, and vice versa.

If not used to fly, wings tucked in a folded position that does not require a large space. Position is in the rear cabin of the car. In the picture also appears a small propeller at the rear of the car. The car’s design was also made tangible sedan like a plane with its front end like an ellipse.

No mention of whether the image of this application will be imposed on the Toyota model of what and when it will be realized. However, from this picture it is clear that Toyota is already square off developing a new transport technology that can function on land and air.

Differences and Halogen Incandescent Lamps

Differences and Halogen Incandescent Lamps

Your active drive, must have been greatly benefit the lights on your vehicle. Components that one, did have an important role to the safety of driving, especially at night.By turning on the light, then you can see the environment around your vehicle. It will help you to avoid things that are not desirable. You can turn the lights on low beam, or light close quarters for the night. Its function is of course to illuminate the road at night. Well, if you want to precede the vehicle in front, use your highbeams or beam, as a signal. You can also use it when foggy.

One of these types of lamps used. If we talk about the type of vehicle lights, you probably already quite familiar to hear the name of incandescent and halogen lamps. Both are just two of the many kinds of vehicle lights. Both of them, must have their own pluses and minuses. Basically, the halogen lamp is part of the incandescent lamp. But thanks to technologydevelopment, quality could be better than a halogen bulb. This, seen in incandescent lamps, which heat up quickly and more easily broken.Meanwhile, the halogen lamp has more light and better quality, so and more durable.

Differences incandescent and halogen lamps, also lies in the way of installation. If you are installing halogen lamps, it is not advisable to touch the glass.This is because the hand or finger is containing oil. Fingerprints left on the glass, could eventually affect the intensity of the lighting. If we talk about the intensity of the lighting, the incandescent lamp light source comes from an electric current to the filament and produce heat. At the time of the hot filament, the tungsten will evaporate and stick to the inside of the glasswall. That process, which made us very often come across the glass walls of incandescent lamps, black. In such circumstances, then the lamp for long dead. Continue reading
