As safety is the primary objective for ourselves,its great to inform you that white color safeguards you at the most than any other shades can do.
Black cars have a 12% higher crash risk relative to white cars in daylight, followed by gray (11% higher), silver (10%) and blue and red (7%), according to a 2007 study of two decades and more than 850,000 car accidents by Monash University Accident Research Center in Victoria, Australia.
At dawn and dusk, black vehicles were found to have a 47% higher crash risk than white (silver was 15% higher and gray was 27% higher).

3.Slight gender differences in relation to color

Each one likes differs a lot between one another ,it is easier to differentiate in terms of gender.
Men have a 7% stronger preference for white cars than women, according to an analysis of 30 million used-car listings by dealing site iSeeCars.com.
Women tend to prefer less flashy colors: They’re 9% more likely to choose silver or brown models, while men are 12% more likely to go for cars in red and orange,But white and black are the most popular among used cars listings: 15% are white versus 17% black — and white is the most popular for pick-up trucks.

Local motors aimed at shaking up the auto industry

September 22, 2015 in Art cars, Auto News, New Cars by admin

Car manufacturing companies face a major problem of wasting large amount of money in production, looking for suggestion and solutions to consolidate and eliminate redundancy. Local motor CEO Jay Rogers perceived the same challenge and attacked completely in a different direction. He says manufacturing process of building a car is same from 1915, with thousand of individual parts on assembly lines.

With the idea of changing manufacturing process and keeping cost-cutting as the major factor, local motors came up with a new innovation called as ‘strati – a 3D printed car’. This Classic (hot-looking) car was built in amalgamation with Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. The strati is a small two-seater electric car.

3D printing can be done in several versions, most commonly used is a laser to form solid objects from epoxy resins to powdered titanium. Local motors used a different method where it can build up objects, mainly one pixel at a time. They demonstrated the concept publicly, where the prototype was same as strati, which had barely 50 auto parts. Two factories, with an employ of 100 each, has scheduled to complete its construction by the end of the year.

The 3D-printed car is crude by design, its flanks, meanwhile, resembling the exposed parts of BMW i3’s matte carbon tub. Roger says, some parts of the car look like, it came out of the printer and it can be changed according to their user’s requirements. The most important feature of 3D printed car, it can be recyclable by putting a vinyl wrap on it.

How strati is made?

Carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic is used for printing, a versatile, strong and cheap material, which may have advanced features to enable safety. Printed car is built in layers and each layer is removed from nozzles of the printer. If the tub is damaged, it can be recycled by removing the motor and melting the car.

Roger mentioned “last car which he tested was a McLaren 650S that cost more than $300,000. This strati, lackluster motor could cost $5000. He added, developing countries will love this technology for its reasonable rates with advanced features. Even a rich guy will like it because of its thousand horsepower with having his own choice of design“.

The strati took 40 hours to print and local motor company is currently looking for an electric-power train supplier. However, the research is ongoing and they have claimed that, they are working on techniques that could increase printer speed by as much as 500-fold.

Google’s self driving car – Easier and Safer Driving

September 10, 2015 in Auto News, Green cars, New Cars, New cars by admin

Imagine if everyone typing or speaking to your vehicle’s interface and letting them to drive, while you read a book, take a nap or surf the web. Google’s self driving car- science fiction is coming and they are going to radically change driving experience. Whether it is a visually challenged or aged people they don’t have to give up their independence. Death that dramatically occurs from car accidents will also go down worldwide. Whatever the reason is, this innovation will have a drastic positive impact across globe.

How Google self-driving car works?
The cars have sensor designed to it, which senses objects like cyclist, pedestrians, vehicles and even birds. Software processes all the information to the car so that it can drive easily and safely without getting distracted. It also processes map so that it can determine what street and which lane it is in. The Software is made in such a way that if objects pass around, it can predict what the object will do and apply the next step. For example, if a pedestrian is an object, then it will predict that as crossing the road and apply the next step of slowing down for pedestrian to cross.

What’s in a Google self driving car?
Google has developed a prototype wherein it starts with a push of a button. Instead of steering wheel and pedals it has a sensor and software that handles driving. Top of the car has a sensor that includes radar, lasers and camera that will detect objects in all directions. It has rounded shape in the corner of a car that maximizes the sensor view. Back-up systems for steering, braking, computing and more is designed in the tires of a car. Electric batteries are used to power the vehicle.

The car was tested on modified Lexus SUV’s and prototype (developed from scratch as fully self driven) over one million miles. These cars are currently out on the streets of Mountain View, California and Austin, Texas.

Despite, driving is a complex task to master, but easier for the computer to process all things that is happening on the road at a faster pace than human mind. The things which look chaotic and difficult for a human eye can easily be predictable by the computer.

While there are few more challenges for Google to overcome, such as avoiding potholes, construction area etc. Once these challenges are fixed launch of this car will make a great impact in automobile industry.
