Rise of the Super-Truck

Rise of the Super-Truck

Sleek lines, extreme performance, and environmentally responsible hybrid fuel systems are usually considered the domain of supercars or luxury vehicles. American manufacturer, the Nikola Motor Company is attempting to challenge that notion with its flagship ultra-heavy duty truck, the Nikola One. The versatility of this 2000-horsepower truck comes from its aggregation of cleaner, hybrid technologies, and superlative design principles. Powered by a 320 kWh battery that is, in turn, is powered by a clean-burning compressed natural gas power plant, the Nikola One runs at half the cost of a comparable diesel truck. Regenerative braking, expanded cabin space, and a proposed network of compressed natural gas stations are a step in making super-trucks more efficient and sustainable. As the natural-gas-powered turbines charge the battery, the truck is charged automatically without necessitating a stop, giving it a revolutionary range of more than 1,900 kilometers on a single filling of 150 liters.

Adaptive Cabin Lighting for On-Road Safety

Adaptive Cabin Lighting for On-Road Safety

Ambient lighting has been one of the mainstays of interior modders, with mainstream manufacturers preferring to stay with standard single-tone tungsten lights. However, the relatively lower cost of LEDs has encouraged OEM suppliers and automakers to consider the significant corpus of research that points towards the use of ambient cabin lighting as a key factor in ensuring the safety of drivers around the world. Research and testing by the University of Michigan and independent research by a team from BMW and the Ilmenau University of Technology in Germany have identified that the correct type of ambient lighting can help to improve driver focus and overall on-road safety. While ambient LED arrays are making their way to cars such as the 2016 Ford Fusion, the future of cabin lighting seems to be in adaptive lighting that can change based on events or triggers, offering a wide range of safety and aesthetic benefits.

Vehicular Emission Management in the UAE

Vehicular Emission Management in the UAE

Vehicular emission is a topic of significant debate in the UAE but is also the focus of the government with a view to lowering the nation’s rank and reputation as one of the largest consumer of natural resources in the world. Following the 2008 WWF Living Planet report that identified and ranked the UAE as the world’s largest consumer of natural resources, the country has made rapid, yet significant advances in lowering its ecological footprint—standing third in the ecological footprint category in 2014. A big part of this success story and the ongoing journey towards greater environmental responsibility are government projects through the Emirates Authority For Standardization and Metrology (ESMA). The organization’s roadmap identifies lower fuel consumption, green engines, and improved fuel quality as some of the factors that will help the UAE become a green motoring country. New rules under this roadmap require new cars purchased in the UAE to conform to a five-star emission scale that is used to reward greener cars with preferential parking, lower purchasing costs, and other subsidies.

Tire Labeling Norms Across the World

Tire Labeling Norms Across the World

Around the world, the practice of tire labeling varies based on the legislative regulations that govern the manufacture, import, and use of tires. The UAE sets the benchmark for tire labeling and rating in the MENA region with a stringent system of control that requires imported tires to label a tire with ratings based on rolling resistance and wet grip ratings. The labeling system is backed up by the introduction of a law that will require every tire sold in the UAE to be tagged with a RFID sticker that is designed to protect consumers from imitations or spurious tires. US tire labeling norms measure several common parameters such as temperature rating, traction, and treadwear while European tires are labeled based on their rolling resistance, wet grip and noise levels—an indication of the varying guidelines tailored to the requirements of each region. The UAE has set a unique benchmark by tying RFID tagging to the sale, storage, and disposal of tires—a landmark that is expected to set the tone for the world.
