I started writing on HubPages because I had a few ideas and tricks of the trade I wanted to share with the world. I figured if I could just get this information in front of people, it just might help someone out. I witness so much dishonesty in the automotive business it made me sick, from mechanics up-selling unnecessary work, to service advisers using scare tactics to pressure customers into buying useless dealership recommended services. In charge of Sustainable Development and External Affairs since 2010, Jean-Luc di Paola-Galloni joined Valeo in 2006 as CEO’s delegate, member of the executive committee. Also, after six years as Vice-Chairman, he became in July 2015 co-Chairman of European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC) the main automotive technology platform on collaborative research of the EU Commission and acting Chairman of its related PPP European Green Vehicle Initiative (EGVI). His commitment to establish fair relationships between the automotive industry and international bodies, with a multi-stakeholder approach is also reflected by his commitment to advise the International Forum of OECD Transport Ministers from the beginning (2008) and to the Global Council of Automotive Industry of the World Economic Forum since its creation (2010).

NVIDIA AI Technology will process massive volumes of sensor data, enabling vehicles to anticipate and respond to dynamic driving situations. Clean every part after you are done with it. Make sure you clean every edge very well before the polish hardens up; I recommend that you use a damp micro-fiber cloth. You can use an old toothbrush or clean paint brush to clean the places that are hard to get into, but be careful not to use too much pressure in order to avoid scratching.
Screw together line fittings have been used for many years. With most of the lines being made out of aluminum, it is easy to kink the lines if two wrenches are not used. Corrosion between the steel nut and the aluminum line could also affect how this comes apart. Lube the -ring with the proper lubricant oil.
The automotive industry is defined by constant evolution. Finding ways to help improve fuel economy and reduce emissions, while enabling improvements in safety and performance, are just some of the areas Dow works on every day. As populations grow, and economies around the globe develop and improve their transportation infrastructure, Dow technologies help the world move forward with … Read more
It is a myth that small autos are powered by hamsters running on exercise wheels, but it is an unfortunate fact that rodents can live and create mayhem in engine compartments. I had the unlucky chance to get to this job just as the weather turned wet and chilly. This increases the drying time and makes getting a nice finish with paint brushes frustrating. The directions on the primer indicated that it would dry to the touch in an hour but requires 24 hours in good conditions for the finished paint application. The finish paint said either add a second coat within an hour or wait 24 hours (again in ideal conditions). I found that I needed at least two coats of the finish paint which I was disappointed about. Maybe it was the brand of paint (Menards) or the conditions, but the Chartreuse especially took even more coats and still isn’t as solid as I’d hoped. Finally, the finish paint suggested that the paint wouldn’t be at full strength until 5-7 days (in good conditions) had passed. I got impatient and went ahead and shampoo’d the carpet… and scratched some of the chartreuse off. Argh. Save some paint for … Read more
Did you know they have portable digital oscilloscopes that fit into the palm of your hand nowadays? I’d love to go back in time and show the users of the original oscilloscopes what we have to work with these days: they’d be amazed. However, not all handheld digital oscilloscopes are made equal, and they may not have the features you need. This may sound like a ridiculous question but can can you strategically place the dryer sheets under the hood so you can drive the car with the dryer sheets under the hood? And replace them once a week?.or are all these methods for when you are storing a car.
Thank you for this posting. I have a very talented student that is drawing car designs already in 8th grade as well as some designers. However, I am especially thankful for your comments on professionalism, attitude and working together. This is something he struggles with (a lot of attitude).
To use a current clamp, you simply clamp over a single cable. In the case of a power cord or multicore cable, you need to isolate one of the cores. If two cores carrying the same current but in opposite directions … Read more

Automotive Telediagnostics is a multidisciplinary field, composed of Telematics and Diagnostics. It refers to the ability to read, correlate, analyze and transmit real-time information regarding vehicles, its mechanical status, location, safety and other relevant data. So relax, dream big, and have fun planning your first (or next) hand-painted shoes project. This transition has not only impact on vehicle production, even more on maintenance and (crash) repair workshops. And at the last fate, at the battery end of life stage.
This relationship between BMW and the SGL Group has the ability to show automotive manufacturers across the board the importance of composites for production vehicles. Lenovo Y50 or HP Envy 15—whichever you may prefer personally. Let me know if you need further help.

I mixed up a new paint color halfway between the pearlescent aqua blue of the narrow leather straps in front and the metallic aqua-green-gold of the large diagonal elastic strap immediately behind them. Then I used that new shade to paint the insole, including the edges that showed all the way around.

The modern automotive industry is notoriously high stakes and competitive- traits that were amplified during the recent era of historic industry restructuring. Though many companies emerged from this turbulent period leaner, more efficient, and attuned to the realities of demand, much work remains to shore up key weaknesses. Amidst this backdrop, automotive companies continue to pour billions into developing products, building new factories, and researching new technologies – all for increasingly uncertain returns. These returns are even more unpredictable in the current global market with new entrants, new powertrain technologies, and fluctuations in oil prices. Vehicle Manufacturers (VMs) and suppliers can no longer rely on domestic demand, political backstops, or mature markets to deliver the required returns on investments. But in order to function properly TaaS concept would require relocation of huge number of citizens to big cities. Many people would have to abandon and disregard their village property. That would make more megalopolises and we all know that megalopolis is by definition too complex and therefore, at the end, the return is no more diminishing but negative.

If you’ve ever attended CES or the Detroit Auto Show, you know that there are some impressive technology concepts showcased at these events. While many of the things that you see or read about are conceptual at best, some are either just around the corner or already in your nearest showroom. I am going to school for mechanical engineering and was thinking of buying an ASUS Q550LF-BBI7T21 laptop from best buy. I was wondering if there are any similar laptops within the same price range ($1000) that I should consider. Remove food sources near the car so the rats won’t be tempted to turn your car into a warehouse. Most notorious: dog food.
