Jeep Compass Review

Jeep, In our country India jeep word is a synonym for an old school off roader, like Volvo is for luxury buses. And keeping this fact in mind, FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) after decades re launched their sub brand Jeep last year in India with two of its flagship models, the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler. Because both of these cars came in India as CBU, they came as quite premium and most of the people no matter how much they loved the brand weren’t able to buy one. To grab a hold on the market and attract buyers, Jeep came up with a car which they say is specially made for Indian market.

Now for this car to make a lasting impression in the market, it needed to be priced right. And this time around to keep the prices low, Jeep India decided to manufacture this at FCA manufacturing plant near Pune. And it is called the Jeep Compass.


When someone hear the word compass, they already gets a sense of adventure or thrill. That’s exactly what Jeeps are all about. The jeep compass might look c…

Amazing 10 Min Charge to drive the vehicle

Automakers has brought the newest internal combustion engines to the show as the future is electric. Nearly every big name in the automotive industry was there to push the latest agenda against fossil fuels, many of which introduced wildly technologically advanced concepts that convinced the iPhone-generation to believe that the vehicles of the future are centered around something they are familiar with.




As we all know that Technology is a beautiful thing. A single platform can be made to portray an outrageously creative and modern design, or affirm itself as a stunningly conservative approach to change to meet the demands of the consumer. Just look at the interior of the Porsche Mission E, the eerily empty inside of the Volkswagen Vizzion concept, or as subtle as the Jaguar iPace's familiar-looking cockpit to see how manufacturers are choosing to push the next generation of cars to consumers.


As for now, the researchers have  called for a hybrid of  lithium ion-based storage in …

TOYOTA & SUZUKI PARTNERSHIP

An association inked recently between Maruti Suzuki and Toyota will bring Baleno to be cross-badged between the two organizations. In the first year, around 20,000 to 25,000 Maruti Suzuki Balenos will be delivered off to Toyota Motor Corporation. As per a report by Mint, through this yearly trade, Toyota will offer these Balenos through their own particular dealership arrange.
To cross-badge, a vehicle means launching the same vehicle under a different brand with some minor alteration. Even with the Baleno, plans indicate that the car will undergo some interior and exterior changes that could include alterations to the headlights, tail lamps and the front grill of the car.

Toyota also has plans of launching Suzuki’s Brezza under their brand while Suzuki will introduce the Corolla under their banner.

Parts of Control System for DC Motor

A control system manages, commands, directs, or regulates the behavior of other devices or systems using control loops. It can range from a single home heating controller using a thermostat controlling a  domestic boiler to large Industrial control systems which are used for controlling processes or machines.

The control system consists of several parts such as:






1. Plant:The plant is also known as the process and it is the physical system to be
controlled. In our case DC Motor is the plant.

2. Output or the Controlled Variable: It is the signal or the plant output which is required to
need to  be control.

3. Manipulated Variable: The manipulated variable is used to maintain the controlled
variable at the desired set point. In this thesis the output of the controller is the
manipulated variable.

4. Reference:It is the desired value   to see at the output.

Model S costs half as much as a Roadster, and it’s a better value than much cheaper cars,” Musk said. “The ownership cost of Model S, if you were to lease and then account for the much lower cost of electricity vs. gasoline at a likely future cost of $4 per gallon, is similar to a gasoline ca…

TRANSPORT REFRIGERATION

While Globalization has made the relative distance between two regions of the world vastly smaller, the physical separation of these same regions is still a very important reality. Phone calls, emails, and videos can be transmitted in fractions of seconds to all corners of the globe, but physical objects such as a bushel of grapes, a drug or a bodily organ cannot. It takes time and coordination to efficiently move a shipment and every delay can cost money and in some cases may even cost lives. To ensure that cargo does not become damaged or compromised throughout this process, businesses in the pharmaceutical, medical and food industries are relying more and more on the cold chain technology. Road transport refrigeration equipment are required to operate reliably in much harsher environments than stationary refrigeration equipment. Due to the wide range of operating conditions and constraints imposed by available space and weight, transport refrigeration equipment has lower efficienc…

10 Best Technologies in Automotive In the year 2018

10 Best Automotive Technologies of 2018 that increases craze of automobiles even more are discussed in the article. The powertrain matters though, but more important is how the driver and vehicle occupants get an exposure of today’s increasingly sophisticated automobiles. These are the things to look for when buying a new car this year. Some People may not find them all useful (differs from choice and priority of person to person), but regardless of price point it shouldn't be too difficult to find a vehicle that has most of them.


1. Connected Mobile Apps It's no exaggeration to say that the smartphone has changed everything, including how we interact with our cars.

Hero's first Diesel Bike upcoming in 2019

The Hero RNT is actually unveiled by the Gurgaon based automaker at the 2014 Auto Expo in Delhi in January and is now expected to be shown in production form later this year. It is a diesel engined motorcycle, the first in its segment, and has been created as a multipurpose vehicle.



In terms of external design, the RNT has been designed with the purpose of utility and this reflects on the outside. The bike has flat loading surfaces with strap bars as well as multi use folding side racks which have all been fitted with the sole purpose of utility. It also gets a small space between the handlebar assembly and the seat, making it a pseudo step-thru, thus combining best of both worlds. Other surprises on the RNT include a detachable LED headlight as well as the fact that the engine can be used as a generator to power external devices.



The RNT is powered by a 150cc diesel that produces 13.5bhp and 35Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheel via a six-speed constant mesh sequential gear…

Check out the all New Honda Amaze at 5.59 lakhs

In the last few years the compact sedan segment has been one of the hottest in the Industry.We have been seeing a number of new launches and the biggies like the Maruti Suzuki andHyundai are constantly updating their cars to be the number one in the segment.



 In April 2013 Honda too jumped in the battle with Amaze and it was the first car from the manufacturer to feature a Diesel motor. Now Honda is quite famous for the refinement of their Petrol engines but
it was never known for the Diesel mills. It was one of the first Diesel engine Honda
manufactured and soon the shortcomings started to show up. It wasn’t refined, there was loads and loads of turbo lag and the engine becomes vocal even when idling. On the contrary the competition like the Maruti Suzuki has some ultra refined Diesel motors.


It is 2018 my friends and Honda had put a lot of effort to make their Diesel motors better. With the 2018 Honda Amaze just launched it was time to take one for a skin.
