Mercedes-Benz F015 -Research Car Not Concept Car

It is the  Motion research car and its immersive user experience is an innovative perspective into the future of mobility.
A user interface designer who works out of Mercedes’ Silicon Valley R&D center, she calls the F 015 a concept car, then catches and corrects herself. "It’s a research car, not a concept car




Mercedes debuted the F 015 not at Detroit’s North American International Auto Show in January, but at CES the week prior. That is to say, Mercedes announced its most exciting project in years not on the auto industry’s biggest stage, but on technology’s..

Google is approaching self-driving research in a similar manner, but the end goal is different: whereas Google wants to make a little box that efficiently gets you from Point A to Point B, Mercedes is still trying to make something that evokes an emotional response, just as well-designed cars do today. Basically, here’s a car company’s interpretation of a car in a post-driver world.

Nothing about the interior was perfect, but I wasn’t expecting it to be: it’s a hodgepodge of ideas that are fleshed out just enough to test, to gauge reaction. The touchscreens were fidgety, the fit and finish weren’t great, and the car sounded really weird — a continuous drone from a fan that never changed pitch. The seats, which rotate to help you get in and out of the car, would occasionally rotate for no obvious reason. Of course, I can probably name two dozen ways this car isn’t street legal, too. As functional non-production cars go, the F 015 is minimally functional.

7 Mistakes To Avoid When Driving A Car With Automatic Transmission

Individuals associated with the automotive industry iterate that the automatic transmission is a great invention. Actually, an automatic car has opened up a whole new world for car owners.
Both professional and novice drivers love to drive a car fitted with automatic transmission. This is because it is straightforward and easy to drive an automatic vehicle than a car fitted with the manual-shift gearbox. Think about the bumper-to-bumper story we have in the cities! However, it is very important to drive a car with automatic transmission carefully because you could end up damaging your car. Some damages, if they happen, cannot be rectified even by expert mechanics. Therefore, it is best that you avoid the following mistakes when driving your automatic vehicle.

Yamaha has officially unveiled the R15 Version 3.0 in Indonesia. The all-new 2017 R15 is powered by a 155.1cc engine, which develops maximum power of 19.04 Bhp @ 10000 rpm and maximum torque of 14.7 NM @ 8500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox, and the key rivals of R15 V3.0 are 2017 Honda CBR150R and Suzuki GSX-R150.

CRDI (Common Rail Direct Injection)

CRDi stands for Common Rail Direct Injection meaning, direct injection of the fuel into the cylinders of a diesel engine via a single, common line, called the common rail which is connected to all the fuel injectors.

     Whereas ordinary diesel direct fuel-injection systems have to build up pressure anew for each and every injection cycle, the new common rail (line) engines maintain constant pressure regardless of the injection sequence. This pressure then remains permanently available throughout the fuel line. The engine's electronic timing regulates injection pressure according to engine speed and load. The electronic control unit (ECU) modifies injection pressure precisely and as needed, based on data obtained from sensors on the cam and crankshafts. In other words, compression and injection occur independently of each other. This technique allows fuel to be injected as needed, saving fuel and lowering emissions.
