Nissan-Renault ready for the partnership to develop new car technologies

Nissan Motor Co Ltd (7201.T) and Renault SA (RENA.PA) are open to partnerships with other companies to equip their vehicles with sophisticated technology as automakers race to develop the cars of the future, the pair's connected vehicles chief said. Global automakers are competing with industry rivals and technology firms to develop self-driving cars and mobility services such as car sharing as the growing use of technology and artificial intelligence may eventually diminish the role of drivers, threatening the traditional model of car ownership.

As software used in cars becomes more sophisticated and costly, there will be benefits of partnerships - including with rivals - to develop standardized technology such as mapping services, said Ogi Redzic, who heads the Nissan-Renault alliances' Connected Vehicles and Mobility Services division.
"There are some other companies which would like to build everything in-house, but ... we are willing to partner when it makes sense.&…

Ford EcoSport Rivaling Honda WR-V Official Sketch Launched in Brazil

Honda Cars Brazil has released the first official sketches of the WR-V subcompact SUV, ahead of its public debut at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show in November this year.

Ford EcoSport rival, the WR-V is based on the Jazz platform that also underpins the City sedan and will be restricted under the 4-metre mark. What also makes the model extremely interesting is the fact that the WR-V will make it to India as well to take on a host of sub 4-metre SUVs and crossover models. The WR-V crossover has been developed by the R&D team of Honda Cars Brazil. While the Jazz influence is evident, the front gets a more aggressive looking design with the muscular lines on the bonnet, large lower grille, and the chunky bar that holds the big 'H', similar to that seen on the City and Jazz. You can also see the accentuated wheel arches, roof rails and alloy wheels making for a muscular appearance, while the tail light shows a glimpse from the sides, and could be the boomerang shape…

Fuel Monitoring In Vehicle Tracking System

Today, GPS Tracking device or GPS Tracking unit is used widely all over the world to monitor vehicle, truck, excavator or even train location and speed. But it's not only one purpose of GPS tracker...Technoton Sensors breaks application limits and introducing to Indian customers powerful GPS and GNSS Fleet monitoring and Genset monitoring solutions.

Designed to measure the fuel volume in tank. There are number of modifications of various length and interfaces.

Compatibility requirements: terminal of vehicle tracking system should have one or two analog inputs or RS-232 interface or RS-485 interface or CAN interface.
Adopting a fuel monitoring system for fleet management will not only exclude fuel theft and ensure company vehicles are used appropriately, you will also benefit from: refining fuel consumption rates (very important for special equipment, where fuel is written off according to operating hours);vehicle operating time monitoring;improving fleet profitability. Depending on t…

Brain of car engine-ECM

If you type "electronic control module," or its better-known acronym, ECM, into the search field, you'll be gently guided over to the ECU (engine control unit) page.Inside the ECM, there's a microprocessor that receives, interprets and reacts to sensor inputs as fast as they occur. And it's composed of hardware as a standard circuit board that's encoded with software  It is also called as PowertrainControl Module or PCM which acts as brains of theengine management system.

ECU is a type ofelectronic control unitthat controls a series ofactuatorson aninternal combustion engineto ensure optimal engine performance. It controls the fuel mixture, ignition timing, variable cam timing and emissions control. It constantly monitors emissions performance via its OBD (Onboard Diagnostics) programming, and it oversees the operation of the fuel pump, engine cooling fan and charging system. It also interacts with the transmission controller (if separate), ABS/traction/stabil…
