  • Mercedes-Benz Gives Sneak Preview of Its Next-Gen Headlight Technology

    Mercedes-Benz took the automotive world by storm when it unveiled the MULTIBEAM LED headlights that will launch on the 2015 CLS-Class, but with the unending German headlight technology rat race, the automaker will not stop there. The newly rolled out system utilizes 24 individual LEDs in its high beam that can be controlled electronically. This “gridding” enables the light distribution on either side of the headlights to be more securely controlled, keeping the light fully focused straight ahead as much as possible. It is operated by a camera that is positioned behind the windscreen and four control units, which fine-tune the lighting pattern up to a hundred times per ...

  • Meet the Possible Ford Steering Wheel of the Future

    Italy-based Auto & Design Magazine made a loud buzz among students and amateur designers early this year when it presented them a tough challenge: shape the steering wheel of the future. The winner got a chance to spend a day with Ford engineers at the company’s Cologne Design Center in Germany. French design student Jean-Thomas Mayer successfully came up with this, which according to critics, perfectly fits the criteria. The concept of Mayer’s design is plain and simple: combine the functions and features of today’s cars and make them accessible on the steering wheel. However, instead of...

  • BMW Group Reminds Motorists to buckle up on World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims

    The BMW Group Middle East marked the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (WDR) by sending out a message asking motorists and their passengers to buckle up. Generally, the third Sunday of November has been traditionally commemorated by the United Nations every year as the day that the world pays homage to victims of road traffic. This year, the day fell on 16th November 2014, and at least for minute we should all choose to remember the millions who have been either killed or injured in road traffic incidents and their families. These incidents have a tremendous social and economic impact. Commenting on this fact, Leanne Blanckenberg, the Corporate Communications Manager of BMW Group Middle East said that BMW Group Middle East launched its ‘Stay Alert. Stay Alive’ road safety campaign in 2010 as part of the company’s commitment to increase awareness of the importance of buckling up. She added that the WDR was an apt occasion to reiterate this message to motorists and their passengers. The passengers in a car are travelling at the same speed as the vehicle. Wearing a seatbelt if the vehicle has an accident at this speed which could be in excess of 100 kilometers per hour can make a difference between life and death. Passengers who are not belted in will collide with everything in their path as they hurtle towards the point of impact. The “Stay Alert. Stay Alive.” road safety campaign mainly reminds motorists to ask themselves if they have buckled up and if their passengers have buckled up? It also emphasizes the fact that children should have and use car seats that are appropriate for their age and weight. It is advisable to wear seatbelts not only because we are required to do so by law, but also because according to the WHO it has been conclusively proven that wearing seatbelts reduces chances of death in accidents by ...

German Consortium Develops Smart Headlight with Just One LED Bulb

German Consortium Develops Smart Headlight with Just One LED Bulb A German consortium led by premier lighting expert Osram Opto Semiconductors has recently developed a “smart headlight” with just one LED bulb instead of the range of 25 LEDs. This single light source can emit 256 pixels, each with a separate light beam that can be controlled individually. When tested in the laboratory, the technology showed impressive results, making the consortium hopeful to have it ready for road tests two years from now. According to Stefan Groetsch, the experimental LED is extremely versatile that it could also be utilized for fog lights or even a headlight's low beam. He also reveals that the next step is coaxing 1,024 pixels out of Osram's new LED. "The whole thing is risky, and it's not clear whether it...

 Tips and tricks to extend the life of car batteries in the Middle East

Tips and tricks to extend the life of car batteries in the Middle East

The rise in temperatures in the Middle East, especially during the scorching summer months has an adverse effect on tires, batteries, cabin filters, generators and air conditioning systems. According to Andreas Bodemer, Vice President for Bosch Automotive Aftermarket, Middle East and Africa, regular maintenance is the key to driving successfully in hot weather. Though it may seem like a hassle to take the time and effort to conduct such checks, they would be more convenient and cheaper than trying to fix problems that may develop due to lack of care in this direction. The main drain on batteries in the Middle East would obviously be the excessive use of air conditioning to keep cool. This significantly shortens battery life here in comparison to cooler countries. A few tips for maintaining and prolonging the battery life in any vehicle are given below:
