Mercedes-Benz recently debuted its Bluetec emission-control technology in Europe with its Vision C 220 Bluetec, which uses a four-cylinder diesel engine. The vehicle is designed to be a high-mileage, low-emissions passenger car that saves fuel and reduces CO2 and NOx output. While the Bluetec technology was first rolled out in the U.S. with the six-cylinder E 320 version, Bluetec engineering was developed to meet European market requirements that will go into effect in 2015. The new four-cylinder version further reduces emission and ups the gas mileage to just under 43 mpg.
here's what i have read about this Mercedes-Benz Rolls Out Low-Emission Bluetec Car. good thing about this it has a driver assistance features which will contribute to safe and stress free driving. bad thing is you will feels wobbly in anything approaching a sharp turn. There is no descent control or differential locking to augment the all-wheel-drive system. but over all mercedes benz parts are very stylish.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
