PRESENTATION ON HYBRID CARS SATISH PRASAD BANGALORE INDIA EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org SLIDESHARE ID: satmd410
HEY U PEOPLE OUT THERE,,,,CHECK OUT THIS NEW HYBRID CAR WITH EXCITING HIGH-TECH FEATURES,,,,!
Introduction 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 feels drowsy. They can locate your car precisely and warn of traffic jams.
Technologies related to Hybrid cars Technologies related to Hybridcars and modern technologies to improve safety. These technologies are broken down into four broad, distinct classifications of devices:-
Collision Avoidance 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.
Imaging Technology 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 dashboard.
Navigational Aids 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.
Multifunctional Smart Card Car Keys 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 oneself out.
What does the card do! The card you punched carries your SSN , so it acts as your
Other Features Involved In “DIGITAL” Cars SMART VISION:- Hybridcars 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 driver.
New Safety Features 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.
Hardware Architecture:- 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.
Adaptive headlights:- The headlights monitor the car’s road speed and steering wheel movements and adjust accordingly Night vision:- Volvo proposes using infrared night vision in the SSC Collision warning sensors:- If the distance to the car in front is too short, or the gap is closing too fast, the SSC’s driver is alerted via a red warning light
Challenges 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.
Artificial Intelligence Hybridcar is a kind of artificial intelligence. Nowadays, it has applied in every aspect. Human beings work with assistance of robot to save time. We can also make use of artificial intelligence to provide entertainment and allow the car's occupants to conduct business and monitor activities at home and in the office.
