The immediate pastime of speeding has taken to many unsuspecting individuals as a norm of their lives and as a result they have neglected the important components of their vehicle that let them know when to put in their alert lights and to begin to worry about them. They have concluded that the finely tuned electronics in their cars have become a burden and an expense they would rather not have to expend as the cost of keeping those expensive vehicles is so tremendous. Until such time as they search for better and smarter ways to alert the driving public as well as themselves as passengers of the oncoming danger, they are stuck in the same category as those people who own busses or larger trucks that have “Volvo Delco” signage on them.
Many people suffer from what is know as highway hypnosis where the clear line between reality and perception no longer exists. Those individuals that experienced this phenomenon most frequently were those who chose to purchase expensive GPS units to begin with and most notably before they had any interaction with GPS units or radar. Many people purchase these devices with the sole intention of tracking their mileage and will install any number of GPS tracking software programs or devices in their vehicles. Once these devices detect a change in their route plan, instead of calling an audible alert, they will dial a predetermined phone number which will begin a timepad. Two, when the driver dials the correct number, the time begins. If the driver misses the call, a countdown timer will count down until the call is made. Some GPS companies will use a “world clock” to keep track of all time markers. This timer will also act as the reminder that the time has come for the driver to start his trip.
Once the time has arrived at the destination, the driver will be alerted on-board with a unique sound and visual alerts. Some GPS tracking systems will offer voice alerts that will caution the driver of a temporary deafenedness from a distance. The most common alert will warn the driver of a stationary object in his vicinity that may prove hazardous. This is proven to be of particular assistance if a driver is blindsided in a turn.
It is estimated that temporary deafness from GPS tracking could be a factor in as many as 90 percent of all road accidents. The Und scorer is unable to ascertain the exact percentage, but figures conservatively suggest that more than two million accidents could be attributed directly to the possibility of distracted or inattentive drivers. It is possible to avoid even the possibility of being involved in an accident by always remaining alert and paying additional attention to the traffic conditions. If a driver’s attention becomes fixed on an oncoming obstacle they are unable to react in time. The consequence could be catastrophic.
aurus Ingeniously Developed By Toyota’s Brand methane Injection Business
Toyota Motor Corp. has developed a prototype system by installing a sensor on a vehicle that can recognize certain key information independently of the radars and cameras on the roadway.
The partially developed system works by reading the key codes stored in the vehicle’s ECU or electrical control unit. Said codes contain personal information such as unique variant, model, type and year of vehicle as well as other optional features. Some of the available options can also track air-bag deployment and performance quality.
Toyota will invest 1 billion yen in a drivetrain assembly plant in Japan to build the system. Said factory will build a single unit with a 90mm diameter heat sensor that will be placed in the third row of a vehicle’s cabin.
The said facility will be built in Negishi, Japan. Negishi officials unveiled an image of the said transmission assembly plant on Tuesday. Negishi is expected to start building the plant in late 2007. The automaker will determine later this year the exact location of the factory.
Toyota will undertake production of the system in Japan and then export to Negishi. The latter will make regional adjustments before rolling out the device in other markets. Until then, Toyota will rely on Negishi for the rest of the global market.
The DISTRONIC Contact Trolling System from Dotonne thousand-series was previously a key technology in the Toyota Prius hybrid. The feature allows the owner to check in real time via a Web interface if his or her car is stolen. This Toyota car, in addition to the Prius, is also equipped with an advanced safety features.
Otheratsuctions from Dotonne, on the other hand, include a City Traffic Management system, greener countermeasure systems, mass transportation charge payment systems and airbag systems. Otheratsuctions from Dotonne include particulate filter distribution, carbon dioxide strippers andbowitz zero-emission systems.
With regards to Toyota, it will release a new car in Japan in September titled the RAV4 compact crossover.
