Location

Such as at the car’s front, trunk, etc.

Application

This requires an understanding of where the mat will be used. Such as: Will the mat track oil, dirt, water, rocks, dust etc.

Surface 

This requires an understanding of whether the surface will be flat or will have contours.

 

This article will help you understand the common mistakes that people make when selecting and using floor mats and the best ways to avoid them.

 

Common Mistakes

Poor placement 

The majority of people believe that covering your entire vehicle floor with mats is an effective way of protecting your vehicle from dust, dirt, and fluids from the shoes of the users. The truth is too many floor mats can lead to hazards such as slipping. Therefore it is important for the vehicle owners to do a need analysis to determine where specifically the mat will be used and the number of mats required.

Buying cheap floor mats

Buying floor mats simply because they are cheap will lead to one purchasing low-quality mats. Such mats will not offer good protection to your vehicle as required. Low-quality mats are very hard to clean and wash since they may require special fabric cleaners to clean. Also, the fluid absorption of these mats is quite poor and will lead to fluids getting all over your vehicle. So when you’re selecting mats for the car, you should not be deceived by the low cost of the item. Consider mats that are effective in catching dust, absorbing fluids and dirt.

Using OEM floor mats and not purchasing custom floor mats

OEM or original equipment from the manufacturer is used to designate the producer of automobile parts that will then be purchased by for final placement by the destination user company. In most cases, the OEM floor mats are limited to the most current model of the vehicle which means that you cannot use the OEM mats on older versions of vehicles hence economical. They are also very expensive to buy. Buyers should consider buying custom floor mats because they are customized to your needs and there is no vehicle that can’t be protected by floor mats that take a customized approach.

Using the wrong floor mat for the wrong application

 people commonly misuse mats when it comes to application. While a walk mat work well in office, it does not work well or provide sufficient protection in your car. Hence vehicle users should stop misusing mats by using mats that are used in other places such in the office or houses as car mats. That’s why most manufacturers recommend a walk mat in a shop environment and a car mat in a car environment because the walk mat will not work in a car environment and vice versa.

Skimping on floor mat coverage to save cost

 Skimping of floor mat coverage means using less floor mat in your car in an attempt to economize. Floor mats should perfectly fit your car, but should not block important features such as brake and clutch pedal.

 should be designed in a way that allows them to fit the space in your car more securely. However, most car owners buy mats that do not fit perfectly in the car in order to save cost. Some even leave important areas that require a mat without one in order to save cost. Mats that do not fit well in your car do not have the capacity to protect your car properly and will allow the dust, dirt, and fluids from the muddy shoes to ruin the floor of your vehicle. This means that the cost of floor replacement or potential deterioration of the car outweighs the cost of an extra floor mat.

      This car has nothing but issues, now I have water coming in when it rains and my back seat floor is a puddle. Took my spare tire out and have water in there also. Sprayed the whole car down and can see the water coming in when I spray the roof. Looks like it may be coming from the roof rack area. Took the panels off to look and the roof/body seal may be the culprit. Also found a bulletin on this. I ordered some
      link hidden, please login to view so I'll try and replace the seal. Anyone run into this on an equinox or terrain?

      Farreo has developed an end-to-end learning system for speed control. The system adopts the function of neuron network and long-term memory (LSTM), which is a recurrent neural network (RNN), and can learn long-term dependencies.
      The new system was developed by Wirbel and her colleagues, who also deployed an artificial neural network (ANN), which relies on in-depth learning technology. The network has been provided with a large number of demonstrations of human drivers'vehicle operation, which are recorded by forward-looking cameras and can be closely related to the driver's visual field when driving.
      The neuron network will also be trained to imitate the driver's behavior, especially focusing on reproducing the current speed of the vehicle. For example, when the input image contains a speed-limiting panel of 50 km/h, the neuron network will ensure that the current speed of the vehicle is not higher than 50 km/h.
      Perhaps in the near future, the neuron network system will be deployed in the automatic driving vehicle to improve the efficiency of speed control and achieve more intuitive driving control. Researchers plan to apply this proof-of-concept to more complex driving situations, adding a variety of complex driving manipulations, such as diversion, turning at intersections or vehicle navigation at roundabouts.
