The Ultimate Car of the Future

THE ULTIMATE CAR OF THE FUTURE PRESENTED BY carloan Advances in materials, computing and network technology will, in the coming years, transform the car we know into a greener, safer and better-connected machine. This infographic takes a look at what you can expect your car to be like ten years from now. THE ULTIMATE CAR OF THE FUTURE WILL BE LIGHTER SMARTER AWESOME LIGHTER Cars in the future will be lighter, making them more fuel efficient and cleaner. I ALUMINIUM I PLASTICS I CARBON FIBRE Replacing key steel parts with carbon fibre could cut vehicle weight by 40%. I HIGH STRENGTH STEEL (HSS) High strength steel is 10%-15% thinner than normal steel, without sacrificing strength. I MAGNESIUM SHEET METAL Magnesium sheet metal can be used to replace aluminium panels, as it is 33% lighter. SMARTER Smarter cars save lives, money and time. Google already has driverless cars on the road in California. It won't be long before this future technology becomes available to us on production model cars. LIDAR I I GPS Light Detection and Ranging system. The car uses lasers, spinning at upwards Geo Positioning Service combined with tachometers, altimeters and gyroscopes to pin-point the car better than any standard GPS. of 900 rpm, to generate a point cloud that gives the car a 360-degree view. Video Cameras I Cameras recognise lane markings, road signs, objects, and pedestrians. I Central Computer Understanding formal and informal rules of the road, the computer analyses information and controls steering, acceleration and braking. Radar Sensors I I Ultrasonic Sensors Track nearby objects and vehicles, and alert to possible collisions. Wheel-mounted sensors measure velocity and proximity to nearby objects as the car manoeuvres through traffic. THE BENEFITS Increase in fuel efficiency Increase in Productivity Steering wheels, columns, pedals and gear sticks can be removed, saving weight and fuel. Americans spend nearly 100 hours sitting in traffic every year. Removal of Driving Stipulations Reduction of Car Parking Spaces Older, disabled, and intoxicated Acting like a taxi, users can summon drivers can still have auto access. their car with a smartphone. 3. Fewer Traffic Collisions Reduced Vehicle Insurance With fewer crashes, insurance will be heavily reduced. Humans are to blame for 93% of crashes. THE ROLLOUT BEGINS I HAVE PASSED LAWS Nevada, Florida and California have passed laws relating to the testing of autonomous vehicles. I CONSIDERING PASSING LAWS Arizona, Hawaii, Colorado and Oklahoma are considering passing laws. The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles issued the first license for a self-driven car in May 2012. AWESOME Self-healing Coatings I Wi-Fi Connected Entertainment and utility apps Scratches disappear in a few hours I Transparent conductive layer I Cloud-connected to files at home and work prevents ice formation Smartphone can Carbon Nanotubes summon car remotely High-density flywheels I for energy storage Energy Storage Faster computers and wiring I Regenerative braking I Batteries moulded into door panels OLED Lights & Displays Augmented reality overlaps digital content Power Source I onto real life situations in real time I Dashboards Touchscreen Window Displays I Information as you pass Hydrogen Biofuels Electricity Fossil Fuels Restaurants and Stores External Light Displays Sources 10 Uses for Carbon Nanotubes - The future use of structural composite materials in the automotive industry - Brought to you by Bright future for composite materials in European automotive industry market - OLED panels in cars - Future of Automotive Design & Materials - carloan Ultra-High-Strength Steels - 13 future car technologies for your road trip in 2020 - Will driverless cars mean computer crashes? - 5 Future Car Technologies That Truly Have a Chance - GM Pioneers Use of Lightweight Magnesium Sheet Metal – The Future of the Car- D.C.'s legislation embraces the future of driverless cars - Four More States Looking At Driverless Cars -
