HEY U PEOPLE OUT
THIS NEW HYBRID CAR
WITH EXCITING HIGH-
Hybrid cars use a vision system to detect
other vehicles, respond to traffic signals,
And avoid pedestrians and obstacles.
This also includes information on road and weather
conditions, route directions, vehicle diagnostics,
anti-collision warnings, the
driver's physiological status, etc.
What are the features of
hybrid cars ?
They can see, hear, feel, smell, talk and act.
They can eliminate most car accidents.
They can alert the police and
provide precise location if stolen.
They can monitor one’s driving
and the driving condition nearby.
They can alert the driver who
They can locate your car precisely
and warn of traffic jams.

Technologies related to Hybrid cars and modern
technologies to improve safety. These technologies
are broken down into four broad, distinct
classifications of devices:-
adaptive cruise control
Various systems combines an eye tracker, which checks
where the driver is looking, and differential global
positioning system, which is designed to allow the system
to keep track of its location both on the planet and in
relation to other similarly equipped vehicles.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive cruise control is a new concept that is being explored by many
automakers and researchers for the Intelligent Vehicles Initiative. These
systems seek to allow a car to not only maintain its speed, like
traditional cruise control, but also its distance from cars in front of it. A
perfect example is the system being developed for the Jaguar line of cars.
To use it, the driver simply enters a speed and a distance (in seconds) to
keep between themselves and the car in front of them.
A competing adaptive cruise control concept, called the Platoon system,
is also being developed by the University of California. Two kinds of
sensors were responsible for keeping the vehicles bearings- 9 sensors
monitored speed and engine performance, while actuators controlled the
throttle and brakes. An antenna mounted on each car allowed it to
communicate with the front few vehicles.
Another area of study is how to enhance the vision of humans in
situations where they may not be able to see very clearly. Few companies
are testing a concept similar to that used in Night Vision Goggles, where
sensors process differences between roadside temperatures and those of
objects ahead. The sensors send this information to a central computer,
which converts the information and uses it to put together images of the
surrounding roadside that are updated several times a second; this
processed composite image then shows up on a screen built into the
It will be integrated within a communicating navigation unit that
automatically tracks the actual location of the car and can reveal it if
necessary. So far, such systems have been used to track stolen cars and
calculate traffic flows. The latter option is still rather unpopular. From
the driver's point of view, a communicating navigation system is
convenient because it dynamically chooses the best route by tracking
the actual location of the car.
In other words, instead of theoretically suggesting the best way from
point A to point B, the system constantly gets information about road
conditions and traffic jams and uses it to suggest the most practical way
from the car's current position to its destination. With the help of
Internet-based services, the navigation system can also tell the driver
about free parking lots or the cheapest nearby gas station. And for safety
reasons, such systems will announce this information through speakers
instead of showing it on a display.
The idea that a personal smart card
could replace your car keys is not
futuristic. Mercedes CL owners can
already open their car with a contact
less smart card developed by Siemens.
The motor starts after pushing a little
ignition button, but only if the card is
inside the vehicle. Without it, no hairpin or fake key can help a
thief start the car. The system also prevents drivers from
locking the car with the card inside, making it impossible to lock

Other Features Involved In
Hybrid cars use a vision system to detect other vehicles, respond to traffic
signals, and avoid pedestrians and obstacles. Researchers at DaimlerChrysler
Research (Ulm, Germany) have built a smart-vehicle-theory demonstrator
called the Urban Traffic Assistant (UTA). The DaimlerChrysler research
team has demonstrated that by using a multitude of algorithms it can
maintain separation from the vehicle ahead, see and respond to traffic
signals, and avoid pedestrians and obstacles while moving through urban
traffic situations at normal driving speeds under the supervision of a human
Special scanners helps to locate the position of passengers and their heads (using
rather rough biometric patterns) and optimize the use of airbags. The lifesavers
go off only if it is really necessary, because the new mechanism recognizes when
passengers are at risk of a collision. Unnecessary, expensive airbag activation is
avoided without reducing passenger safety. Other sensors check tire pressure or
the distance to the next car and warn the driver or react with a slight automatic
reduction of speed. Such intelligent safety features can reduce the number of
accidents and injuries.
A pair of video cameras serves as the eyes for the vehicle. The
cameras are mounted on a horizontal bar near the rear-view mirror.
The horizontal scan lines of both cameras must be tightly aligned
and strictly parallel to the line joining their optical axes.
The UTA uses an Imaging Technology Inc. IMPCI frame grabber and a
commercial monitor with 1024 x 786-pixel resolution.
Information from a car may be provided through data servers,
which are in turn connected to a centralized computer which gets
all the information about the vehicle. By using this kind of loop, any
urgent information or direction can be provided to the vehicle using
wireless, and a tragedy can be avoided.

• So many people don’t convert their conceptions to
accept Hybrid cars.
• The traffic problems may became more and more
serious, such as occupation of lanes.
• In-vehicle systems throw people back on high-tech.
• Because of the challenges of combining intelligent
highways with the existing highway system, fully
automated vehicle operation is still some years away.

activities at home and in the office.
