Must Read Mumbai Floods safety Instructions for your Car

1. Switch off the engine: You may run the risk of inundating the air inflow with water if you drive your car through a waterlogged street. This will not allow the water to enter into it. so we would suggest Walking in the rain is far better than getting stuck with a compromised car.

2. Ensure you are on the side of the road: Do not leave your car parked just about anywhere. Make sure that your car is parked somewhere on the side of a road and preferably away from any poles .

3.Ensure to  Disconnect the battery: If you can, remove the battery connections to the car. This will prevent any accidental short circuiting in the car. 

4. If the water is exactly above the bottom of the car and has managed to seep inside the cabin, you'll need to start drying the car as mould will start growing quickly on the fabrics otherwise.

Do you know about Car Scrap Technology

The growing demand for high-value, secondary raw materials renders targeted recycling increasingly attractive. Modern Sorting technology generates clean non-ferrous metal fractions in customer shredder operations and results in valuable scrap metal gains.

The aim of scrap sorting in a shredder process is to generate clean, metal fractions from a very complex – and varied - input stream. These input streams contain ferrous metals like unalloyed steel, non-ferrous metals like aluminum, copper and brass, as well as plastics, glass and compound materials.

India has sought eco-friendly technology from GermanyThe technology will help process the waste generated during scrappingThe aim is to scrap heavy vehicles that are more than 15 years old  India has sought advanced environment-friendly technology from Germany to scrap old polluting vehicles and processing the waste generated by it, besides manufacturing cars to run on flex-fuel,

Vehicle recycling is the process of  dismantling of veh…

Hydrogen: The Fuel of Future

With accelerated industrial development and population expansion, we are now facing the problems of unsustainable fossil fuel supply and environmental degradation. Motor vehicles are the major fossil fuel consumers and they contribute significantly to greenhouse gas, toxic gas and particulate emissions. Thus, alternative fuels for motor vehicles have been widely investigated for alleviating these problems. Hydrogen being clean and renewable, has strong potential to be a future fuel for motor vehicles.
Hydrogen is an energy carrier that can be used in internal combustion engines or fuel cells producing virtually no greenhouse gas emissions when combusted with oxygen. The only significant emission is water vapour. Hydrogen is the most abundant element on earth. Although hydrogen does not exist freely in nature, it can be produced from a variety of sources such as steam reformation of natural gas, gasification of coal, and electrolysis of water. Hydrogen Usage in Vehicles Hydrogen IC engin…

Vehicle Homologation

Prior to marketing and sales of motor vehicles, automotive systems and their components need to have type approvals according to the official standards of their destination countries. These standards aim at improving active and passive car safety, environmental protection as well as the quality of products and production process. Homologation could be in the form of: A self-certification by the manufacturer; orCertification carried out by a Government nominated Agency after verification of all relate regulations and standard (TYPE APPROVAL). USA is one of the main countries where self-certification is being practiced whereas India follows the 'Type Approval Scheme".
Indian Type Approval SchemeThe Indian system is basically modelled on the European system (ECE). Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRT&H) is the ultimate authority for administering rules and regulations and their implementation for motor vehicles. In this matter, MoRT&H is assisted by 2 committees: S…

Bajaj Qute a new age of vehicle in India will be launching by end of 2017

Qute is actually  motorised quadricycle defined by weight, power and speed. It weighs under 450kgs, that is, 37% lighter than the smallest car in the market .  Being light in weight also makes it an energy efficient vehicle.  

Engine: 216.6cc CNG and LPG variants available Peak Power: 13.2 PS
Max Speed: 70 Kmph

Qute can sits on a water-cooled Digital Tri-Spark ignition 4-valve engine and a closed loop fuel injection system. This helps it in delivering high performance in power and control. With a really small turning circle radius of 3.5m, Qute is really equipped to take the twists and turns of urban roads with ease.    

Bajaj has been the pioneer of last mile city transport. It’s auto rickshaw was an Indian icon recognized around all over the world. With the urban landscape changing in last few years, Bajaj has once again pioneered had transformation in the way modern India will move by introducing Qute- a smart move for solving the urban problems. 
It has sequential gear shift like…

Future in electric turbocharger

Honeywell’s chief technology officer for transportation system business, says electrification is coming to turbochargers in regular passenger cars. These e-turbos won’t just boost engine performance, they will also generate electricity, lightening the load on the alternator and helping to improve fuel economy
What is mean by electric turbocharger: electric supercharger are motor driving a compressor, and connected to turbocharger. So it is an additional device. In electric turbocharger, motor is placed on the shaft turbocharger as shwon
Working: An electric supercharger is used to spin up the compressor at start and through the lower revs, and when the exhaust volume is enough, pass the work over to the turbocharger. In general ,electric turbochargers are smaller electric superchargers combined with a conventional, exhaust-driven turbocharger. electric superchargers:

Advantages: Electric motor eliminating turbo lag E-turbo is still using exhaust gas, but it is uses the electric motor to spool…
