nice to see the appearance of how led taillights were designed in the back end of dodge dart. It indicates sense of style. They last longer like those low cost Headlight Bulbs still the same performance with expensive ones. It offers safe ride with maximum brightness plus quality and stylish look. Looking forward to see new designs from it.

LEDs moving quickly into many price points

Its good to see how fast LEDs are finding their way onto automotive lighting applications. Especially on the Dodge Dart, a much lower priced consumer segment compared to the first introduction on Audi.  It was only a couple of years ago, that Audi introduced the bright white LEDs outlining the headlamps and touted it as industry leading innovation (which it was).   Only 2 years later, many vehicles have the same feature, and now even seen low cost after-market products in the Wal-Mart automotive section to dress up your grill with an adhesive based strip wired into the running lights.  I don't recall another accessory feature having as fast an adoption rate across so many consumer segments.

The designer was proud of teh fact teh LED taillaights were distinctive. They are, but. I would like to see a more practical and imaginative use of LEDs. Replace all light bulbs with LEDs. No more burnt out bulbs. This would be a real customer-engineer related advantage.

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
