Long gone are the days when automobiles with basic features were loved by everyone. The automotive sector has witnessed a drastic evolution post-2016 with various advancements in technology. New features like IoT, cloud computing and others have transformed the traditional cars into connected vehicles.

For instance, the big data analytics platforms are now used by various manufacturers to optimize parts and designs of vehicles. This has given the OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) a quality advantage in the market. The technologies will also help in enhancing the end-user experience while making a significant change in the supply chain process.

So, without wasting your time, we provide you with 5 trends that will take the automotive industry by storm.

 

  • Connected Vehicles

 

In recent years, a lot of new technologies have been making their way into the automotive industry. Amongst these technologies, connected vehicles will be one of the most important ones.

These vehicles will possess the ability to share information about the driving conditions, like weather, traffic and more. It will just be the first step towards the V2V (Vehicle to Vehicle) communication technology. This is the main reason why vehicle transmissions, car sensors, and wireless communications have become the leading topics of discussions in the automotive sector.

 

  • Blockchain

 

With the improvements in features, the automotive sector has also been facing an increasing number of challenges like fake part sellers and service providers. To tackle these challenges, leading companies are looking forward to ‘Blockchain’ as a potential solution.

The eradication of fake part supply from the market will enhance transparency in the operations. This, in result, will improve the pricing strategies. The blockchain technology will help in creating a trusted protocol for the rising supply chain management problems.

 

  • Autonomous Driving

 

Be it Tesla, Hyundai or BMW; every leading automobile manufacturer has been trying to implement this technology successfully. While autonomous driving will not be prevalent on streets for some time, it is being experimented throughout the world.

However, once this technology is completely adapted, it will help in minimizing accidents that are caused due to the carelessness of the drivers. It will also allow passengers to take care of other essential work while driving.

 

  • 3D Printing

 

3D printing technology has been slowly making its way in every aspect of designing, and the automobile industry is no different. Nowadays, vehicles are being designed to endure a higher number of crashes and have higher life-span.

The technology can help in manufacturing vehicles on solid chassis so that even if the vehicle meets an accident, its interior body does not get damaged. It will help in developing cost-effective and sustainable vehicles.

 

  • Usage Based Insurance for Vehicles

 

The Internet of Things or IoT will be influencing all the major operational activities in various industries. The insurance sector, for instance, is also experiencing a significant change due to this technology. The IoT platform will help the insurers in connecting with their customers better. Similarly, it will allow buyers to easily select the best car insurance policy that suits their needs.

The technology will allow insurers to sell usage-based insurance (UBI) to their buyers. The UBI will be able to factor various things such as vehicle type, distance covered, the behavioral pattern of the driver among others to calculate premium amount. It will encourage the drivers in safe driving which will, in turn, help insurers to reduce their claims payout. Thus, UBI will become the best car insurance policy type, for both insurers and policyholders.

‘Summing Up’

The automobile industry is presently growing exponentially beyond the traditional methods of manufacturing. With the above trends emerging at a speedy pace, there will likely be more exciting trends that will emerge in this sector. The future of automobiles is quite exciting, and these technologies will make sure of that.

Cars are not just a vehicle, but they are a family member. It’s the speed, comfort, and other features that make your journey fast and beautiful.

Which is your favorite car brand? Is it Lamborghini, Porsche, Ferrari or something else?

Lamborghini doesn’t need an introduction. Today, they are one of the most luxuries and expensive car manufacturing brand in the world. The Italian giants specialize in manufacturing three major types of vehicles. This includes Sportscar, SUVs as well as Tractors.

You can guess the exclusivity of the brand that most of the world only dreams of having it. It is available only to very rich and famous individuals.

“Lamborghini doesn’t advertise. because the people who can afford it are not sitting in front of the TV.”

Lamborghini has a massive fan following.  In a survey, it was asked that hypothetically, if they won a lottery, which car would they choose. Guess which was the top response? Yes, it was Lamborghini!

Lamborghini has had a very interesting journey so far. Of course, the trip to be one of the best luxury car manufacturers wasn’t always smooth, but it’s surely worth it.

We bring you 6 Lamborghini facts that will blow your mind –

6. Name

Names are considered very important as they give an identity. A brand either follows a certain theme for naming their models or each of them is unrelated. As for Lamborghini, the theme is Bulls. It is because the creator, Ferruccio Lamborghini was an avid lover of Spanish bullfighting. Therefore, he decided to name his cars after the names of famous bulls. The first car, Lamborghini Miura was named after a bull. There are many more models that are based on the names of famous fighting bulls.

5. No Engine

The first model of Lamborghini was launched at the Turin Auto Show. It was the first time the world had witnessed a Lambo sports car. This was the beginning of what is now the brand of exclusive luxury cars. But a strange fact is, the car wasn’t finished when presented. In fact, it had no engine at the time of its launch. The engine space was replaced by bricks. 

4. Countach

The flagship of Lamborginhi, Countach was coined by the head designer of the house. When he saw the concept, he exclaimed “Countach” in excitement in the Piedmontese dialect. The rough translation is “Bloody hell!”. Yes, the flagship is based on a cuss word!

3. No Motor Racing

Being one of the fastest cars in the world, one would expect that Lamborginhi would appreciate heavily in the Motor racing. But No! Ferruccio Lamborghini didn’t approve of motor racing. He thought it is nothing more than a waste of resources and time. Therefore the company stayed away from motor racing for a long time. It was only in recent years when they established their own motor racing team and made their presence felt.

2. Aventador’s inspiration

One of their most popular models, Lamborginhi Aventador’s design was inspired by an insect. You don’t believe me? Read it yourself –

‘The design was inpsired by F22, B2, F35 and “those shiny green jagged-leg beetles that smell bad when you step on them.”
          – Said a one of their chief designers.

1. Face Off

Ferruccio Lamborghini owned a Ferrari 250GT. But the handling wasn’t smooth. After a look, Ferruccio realized that Ferrari was using a tractor clutch. He took his car directly to Enzo Ferrari and requested him for replacement. But Ferrari insulted him, mocked him saying what does a tractor maker know about a sports car. 

Ferruccio wasn’t a man to forgive or forget. Within a span of 4 months, he created the first Lamborghini. Well, whatever the reason be, we sure are glad that Lamborginhi happened.

That concludes our list of 6 fascinating Lamborghini facts. Which one was your favorite?

In the first article of Fleet Management, we had a brief introduction to the Fleet Management. We also understood why the GPS Vehicle tracker is the heart of Fleet Management and Why do we need it?

Functions of Fleet Management

Now, we will move forward with what are the functions of Fleet Management.

Functions of Fleet Management includes –

  • GPS Vehicle tracker
  • Mechanical diagnostics
  • Driver behavior
  • Fleet management software
  • Fleet security and control

The soul of the Fleet Management is the GPS Vehicle Tracker. Let’s brief ourselves with the function of GPS tracker.

1. GPS Vehicle Tracker

  • This is the primary function of Fleet Management. It does make sense, right? I mean, if the doctor can’t locate where the problem is, how can you expect him to find the solution. The GPS Vehicle Tracker System is the doctor here. It is usually based on the GPS service but sometimes it’s also based on the ‘GLONASS’. It stands for Global Navigation Satellite System. And yes, as the name suggests, it uses space-based satellite navigation system.

Functions of Fleet Management

  • Once the factors like location, speed, and directions are calculated by the GPS system, the Vehicle Tracking System sends them to the Fleet Management, who then based on their expertise take further decisions to further roll the process.

2. Mechanical Diagnostics

  • Data such as Fuel Consumption, mileage, and other real-time components are determined by the Mechanical Diagnostics.
  • This happens through the advanced Fleet Management system which allows the operator to connect to the vehicle’s onboard computer, and gather data for the user.

3. Driver behavior

  • We are aware that the road business is tough and rather harsh. It’s not easy to sail through these conditions. This is why we hear about the severe cases of accidents which leads to loss of not only fortune but also the lives.
  • In order to deal with this, the advanced system of Fleet management has vehicle telematics systems. They collect a full range of data in real-time and transport and fleet managers.

Image result for fleet management

  • These data collection along with the combination of the history of the driver can be used to determine a profile which indicates his efficiency.
  • If the Management system finds that the behavior patterns are dangerous, the driver is sent into training facilities which help him overcome his problems.

4. Fleet Security and Control

  • The success of any business is determined by how much its users trust them. This trust is built over the security that they provide. We do know that Fleet service is a risky arena which includes stolen or rogue vehicles to stolen cargo. Therefore, it needs tight security which can help the owners prevent or at least minimize their losses.
  • The recent developments un the Fleet management allows them to ensure the security of the vehicle while stopped or not in operation and the ability to safely disable a vehicle while in operation.

And finally, the dessert for the end,

5. The Fleet Management Software

  • It’s one thing to be prepared but when things are happening in the field where even the slightest error of judgment can result in a big loss, we tend to look for ways to make sure that things don’t end up that way. As a wise man once said, ‘Prevention is better than cure’. Again, technology has made life easier and efficient.

  • In the same way, the Fleet management uses the FMS or Fleet management Software to have better and efficient control and execution of tasks. The FMS enables people to accomplish a series of specific tasks in the management of any or all aspects relating to a company’s fleet of vehicles.

Using a proper FMS system can prosper the business in unlimited ways. But these are the most prominent reasons why one should definitely have it.


That concludes the second article on the Fleet Management Series. Check out the articles on Artificial Intelligence and Cloud Computing.

koenigsegg entry level model

In the era when every month we see a new hypercar company being born, and going out of the business at a similar rate, Koenigsegg has proven itself a long-term player and made its own mark in the industry. However, it has only been serving to the super riches of the world, until now.

According to TopGear, Koenigsegg is planning on expanding its portfolio and may introduce an all-new model that will be the entry-level car for the brand. This new model will not be any variant of the Regera or the successor of Agra RS. This way, the company is looking to take their yearly car sales number from 20 to hundreds, cites the publication.

“We’ve been looking to expand our offering because basically, our brand has outgrown our production volumes by quite a big margin,” Christian von Koenigsegg, Founder and CEO of the company told TopGear.com. “We have several years of delivery time on the super-exclusive hypercars we’re building today. But we do think if we make a super-exclusive, custom built supercar at a slightly lower price (that’s the €1m mark) we could get the volumes into the hundreds.”

Yes, the affordable for Koenigsegg means about $1.14 million. The model is also likely to have some kind of a hybrid powertrain. “I think having a smaller battery pack and combining it with a CO2 neutral combustion engine is a very enticing, exciting, lightweight, sporty solution for a sports car,” Koenigsegg added.

FCA Fiat India discontinue

According to a report, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles might put a full-stop on its underperforming Fiat brand in the Indian market. The decision is said to be implemented in this calendar year itself.

Autocar India reports that FCA has given up on the survival of the Fiat brand and wants to make way for Jeep as it has been performing really well in the market. Fiat currently has only two models under its badge: The Linea Sedan and Punto hatchback which is available in different versions. However, none of the engines used in these cars comply with the upcoming BS-VI emission norms.

To be compliant to the BS-VI norms which are going to be mandatory from 2020, Fiat will have to update the engines it is making today. However, the other car companies like Maruti Suzuki and Tata Motors who buy the engines from Fiat currently, are going to make them by themselves meaning Fiat will lose a big amount of business. In that situation, it wouldn’t make sense to produce the engines just for the two models which are selling in really poor numbers.

On the other hand, FCA wants to focus on the more successful Jeep brand which has been performing well thanks to the popularity of the Jeep Compass compact SUV which is built in India. Jeep is planning to add more models in the lower segments to retain and grow its market share in the very hot SUV market.

There is no official announcement made by the FCA yet.

Range Rover SV Coupe production

Jaguar Land Rover has been taking tough decisions one after another following their revival plan after the loss-making performance in China last year. The company has now announced that they have canceled the production of the three-door coupe version of the Range Rover SV.

“We have taken the difficult decision to inform our customers that the Range Rover SV Coupé will not proceed into production. Instead, Land Rover is focusing its resources and investment on the next generation of world-class products. With exciting plans for electrification, enhanced craftsmanship, innovation and technology we are working to ensure that we continue to offer our customers a choice of world-leading SUVs,” the British automaker said in a statement.

The Range Rover SV coupe was showcased first at the 2018 Geneva Motor show and the company said that it will go under a limited production of 999 units and will be sold at a price of $300,000 each. However, unexpected circumstances have come up and the decision had to be taken back.

Three door range rover sv coupe production

This decision is a part of JLR’s “transformation programme” that aims to deliver £2.5bn in cost reductions and cash flow improvements over 18 months as well as long-term strategic operating efficiencies. Under this, JLR recently announced 4500 job cuts in the UK and also decide to skip this year’s Geneva show.

If the Range Rover SV Coupe had taken the production form, it would have been made by JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO). “Our Special Vehicle Operations division is continuing to develop exciting cars that push the boundaries of luxury, performance and capability – the all-new Jaguar F-PACE SVR is weeks away from its first deliveries and we have many more new models in development,” the company said.

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE 10 speed auto

Chevrolet has unveiled the 2019 model year for the Camaro ZL1 1LE. The new Camaro retains the muscular old looks but has gained a new gearbox borrowed from its sporty brother, 2019 Camaro SS.

The 2019 Camaro ZL1 1LE has the same 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that churns out 650hp and massive 880Nm of peak torque. What it gets now is a 10-speed automatic gearbox option that is the first in the ZL1 1LE model. With the 10-speed auto transmission, Chevy claims that the new Camaro ZL1 1LE will now be “several seconds” faster on longer tracks like the Nurburgring than the six-speed manual model.

“This transmission is optimized for speed,” said Camaro Chief Engineer Mark Dickens. “With unique Track Mode calibrations and 10 gears, you are always in the perfect gear when rolling on or off the throttle. You may not be a professional race car driver, but now you can shift like one.”

Chevrolet has also made changes in the 1LE performance package to match up with the new gearbox. The transmission, electronic limited slip differential and performance traction management system have been recalibrated. The front and rear Multimatic DSSV® (Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve) dampers have been tuned to accommodate the quicker shifts in weight transfer. Along with the fun of quicker transmission, the Camaro ZL1 1LE also offers standard paddle shifters for a more engaging experience when needed.

“Adding an automatic transmission is another example of the Camaro portfolio delivering what customers want. This ultimate 1LE is another appealing option that is true to its racing heritage,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing.
