The Chicago Auto Show has long been a haven for truck introductions, and this year’s edition was no exception. Chevrolet, Nissan, and Toyota all showed off new trucks, while competitors rolled out concept cars and production vehicles.
We were there and are now bringing it to you! From pickups and concepts to hybrids and electrics, we offer some of the eye-catching new designs from the nation’s largest auto show.

At the Chicago show, Nissan rolled out the Frontier Diesel Runner pickup, a “project truck” that will help the company’s executives gauge market reaction to a Nissan mid-size pickup with a diesel engine. Its 2.8-liter, four-cylinder Cummins diesel produces about 200 HP and 350 lb-ft of torque, while boosting fuel economy by 35 percent over a V-6-powered, two-wheel drive version of the Frontier.

Thanks! I'm a big advocate when it comes to students of all ages being engaged in learning through creative hands-on activities. The Maker movement is a good example of folks building cool devices to solve tough problems. Here's my contribution to the Maker Movement.
I tell my students, everytime they touch a piece of test equipment, wire a circuit, or write code, they have obtained skills and the experience immediately. The best way to obtain this experience is through hands-on engagement with the device or object of interest.
@Pubudu: Learning from practical sessions is where you dig deep into some issue and do it on a routine basis. That I feel is the best way to learn things. That will make the user confident too. Remember that the mind plays a major role in anything.
The so-called “maker movement” may not be big on degrees and formal training, but it can teach the engineering community valuable lessons in product design, an expert at UBM’s Embedded Systems Conference said this week.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
