April 2014: There was a time when one could see everything paid for in a car but with the advent of software in vehicles, an increasing amount of value in a vehicle is accountable to software. As we progress towards the goal of autonomous driving, it’s clear that the penetration of software in mobility has only just begun.
February 2014: As India hosts its largest automotive event – Auto Expo, the focus from an emerging market’s perspective needs to be on making mobility accessible to masses. With one of the lowest car to people penetration ratios among developing countries, the challenge for vehicle makers is to develop affordable yet effective technologies.
January 2014: The push for efficiency has certainly been the largest driver of innovation in the global automotive industry in more than 100 years of its existence. Almost every new innovation, be it even a motor in the seat, is aimed at improving efficiency apart from its core purpose. The number of new technologies launched in the past few years surpasses the achievements of a past few decades.
December 2013: If fuel economy and performance of a vehicle were the key selling points for any manufacturer in the past, the last decade has seen the emergence of safety as one of the USPs. While customers have become more aware of the features that can make their vehicles safer, innovative technology developments have ensured such features are becoming affordable to many.
November 2013: With the internal combustion engine expected to soldier on in the years to come, engineers are constantly trying to extract higher power and efficiency from each drop of fuel. Fuel injection is one of the key technologies to achieving this balance, when used individually or when combined with other technologies. With entry-level cars too featuring advanced versions of fuel injection
October 2013: With the global automotive industry pushing for higher efficiency, tyres are often the less focussed technology area. Their importance, however, cannot be undermined, given the fact that they are the only element subjected to the laws of physics along with the vehicle body. Any inefficiency in a tyre parameter could lead to significant losses, which otherwise would’ve been possible to realise.
September 2013: Communication technology continues to move at a rapid pace and with it, its users. With more time being spent in cars than ever, it becomes imperative to find seamless ways of integration between both. Extensive work in this area has given birth to the concept of HMIs among many others. In this issue, Auto Tech Review takes a look at the future of the connected car.
August 2013: With every passing day, automotive engineers across the globe are making vehicles quieter. The push for this comes from consumers’ demand for quieter cars. Increasingly, people are associating low sound with comfort and luxury, making it a priority for automakers to lower every decibel possible. In this issue, Auto Tech Review takes a look at the advancements in the area of vehicle acoustic
