Описание: Who are today’s hot rodders? Where do they come from, what do they value, and why? Do gearheads and old metal have any place in tomorrow’s transportation landscape? What will be left behind? What will be carried forward?Over an eight year period, gearhead/geographer David Miller crisscrossed America in his home-built 1958 Chevy Apache custom truck interviewing hot rodders who are thoughtful and passionate about what they do, willing to speculate about why they do it and about what lies ahead. This book is a collection of their stories and a celebration of how they roll. It is a testament to what will be lost unless rodders can defy the trend towards mechanical cluelessness, anonymous vehicle styling, driverless vehicles, and a “get back in line and wait to be served” mentality that increasingly permeates our transportation landscape.

Описание: Crisis, Resilience and Survival charts the evolution of the global automotive industry, revealing the pressures and challenges facing firms in this huge but turbulent realm of business. Long-term overcapacity and swings of the economic cycle mean that many car companies are in financially perilous positions. Yet failures of auto companies are rare, and many have bounced back from the brink. Using the concept of the 'survival envelope', Holweg and Oliver argue that the ability to design, develop, manufacture and distribute vehicles competitively is not the only factor in ensuring success. Using detailed analyses of two failures (Rover and Saab) and two near-misses (Chrysler and Nissan) they explore how scale, market reach and supportive stakeholder relations can make the difference between success and failure in this global industry. This book will appeal to anyone working in, or studying the auto industry, as well as those interested in corporate success and failure.

Описание: On-Road Intelligent Vehicles: Motion Planning for Intelligent Transportation Systems deals with the technology of autonomous vehicles, with a special focus on the navigation and planning aspects, presenting the information in three parts. Part One deals with the use of different sensors to perceive the environment, thereafter mapping the multi-domain senses to make a map of the operational scenario, including topics such as proximity sensors which give distances to obstacles, vision cameras, and computer vision techniques that may be used to pre-process the image, extract relevant features, and use classification techniques like neural networks and support vector machines for the identification of roads, lanes, vehicles, obstacles, traffic lights, signs, and pedestrians. . With a detailed insight into the technology behind the vehicle, Part Two of the book focuses on the problem of motion planning. Numerous planning techniques are discussed and adapted to work for multi-vehicle traffic scenarios, including the use of sampling based approaches comprised of Genetic Algorithm and Rapidly-exploring Random Trees and Graph search based approaches, including a hierarchical decomposition of the algorithm and heuristic selection of nodes for limited exploration, Reactive Planning based approaches, including Fuzzy based planning, Potential Field based planning, and Elastic Strip and logic based planning. . Part Three of the book covers the macroscopic concepts related to Intelligent Transportation Systems with a discussion of various topics and concepts related to transportation systems, including a description of traffic flow, the basic theory behind transportation systems, and generation of shock waves. .

Описание: This is the story of the Clydesdale Motor Truck Company, which existed in Clyde, Ohio, from 1917 until 1939. As veterans of the auto industry, Clydesdale engineers worked closely with London General Omnibus Company engineers to develop what they described as the ""perfect"" truck chassis. Shipped from Clyde, Ohio, Clydesdale trucks became internationally famous during World War I, and earned the distinctive title, ""Liberty Truck of Europe."" Following the war, Clydesdale trucks were centre stage in many national motor truck shows and motor truck tours, as trucks gained popularity among American farmers and business owners. The Clydesdale truck's patented ""Driver Under the Hood"" engine governor, which allowed for speed increases, as well as decreases-essentially modern cruise control technology-wowed drivers and industry leaders alike. In the 1930's, the Clydesdale Motor Truck Company became one of the first major manufacturers of diesel engine trucks, and developed what they described as ""the first completely diesel"" truck chassis. The story of the Clydesdale Motor Truck Company provides a window into the early truck manufacturing industry and international trucking landscape, just as it was giving rise to the modern industry we recognise today.

Описание: Prepared by the Automated People Mover Standards Committee of the Standards Council of the Transportation and Development Institute of ASCE.Automated People Mover Standards, ANSI/ASCE/T&DI 21-13, establishes the minimum requirements necessary to achieve an acceptable level of safety and performance for an automated people mover (APM) system. An APM is defined as a guided transit mode that is fully automated, featuring vehicles that operate on guideways with exclusive right-of-way. This Standard covers design, construction, operation, and maintenance of APM systems.This fully updated revision consolidates all four parts of ASCE 21 that previously were published separately. Topics include: operating environment; safety requirements; system dependability; automatic train control; audio and visual communications; vehicles; propulsion and braking; electrical equipment; stations; guideways; security; emergency preparedness; verification and demonstration; operations, maintenance, and training; and operational monitoring. One mandatory annex covers requirements for system safety programs. Nonmandatory annexes include a bibliography, recommended practice for acceptance of an APM system application; inspection and test guidelines; and recommended practice for working safely near APM systems.This Standard may be used in a safety certification process. It will be helpful to anyone who owns, operates, maintains designs, test, insures, oversees, or certifies APMs. It will also be valuable to transportation engineers, safety engineers, and contractors for APM systems or other innovative technology transit systems.

Описание: Hydrogen Fuel Cells for Road Vehicles addresses the main issues related to the application of hydrogen fuel cell technology in the road transportation sector. A preliminary treatment is given on fuel resources and atmospheric pollution concerns which are closely related to the current technology (internal combustion engine) used for moving people and goods. The authors deal, in particular, with the problems that can hinder a widespread hydrogen market (production, storage and distribution), as well as giving an analysis of fuel cell technologies available for utilization of this energy carrier in the automotive field. Hydrogen Fuel Cells for Road Vehicles also examines the concerns faced during the design and realization of a PEM fuel cell system with optimal size and efficiency, evidencing the impact of the individual auxiliary components on energy losses and dynamic stack performance. The book ends with the analysis of two practical case studies on fuel cell propulsion systems. Hydrogen Fuel Cells for Road Vehicles is a useful text for researchers, professionals and advanced students in the fields of automotive and environmental engineering.
