Recognition of Blind Point Objects by Intelligent Human-Machine Interface and Natural Dialogue with DriversBy Erica Zhu Feilong Jiangli
Nowadays, more and more driver assistance systems equipped with cameras and sensors can detect objects more effectively than drivers. Moreover, speech recognition technology has already been equipped with vehicle navigation system. Traditional driver assistance system can detect objects (vehicles, pedestrians, etc.) and then inform the driver. However, sometimes drivers will be annoyed by such vague and one-way notification, which will lead to the driver taking the wrong road. In response to such restrictions, Mitsubishi Electric has developed new technologies for intelligent notification and natural navigation functions, which are expected to help make driving safer and more convenient.
After identifying the direction the driver is facing, the technology uses intelligent notification to alert the driver about objects beyond the driver's sight. In addition, the HMI Natural Navigation System can respond in a natural dialogue when the driver verbally asks questions about the driving route, without pressing a button or saying an activation word.
Intelligent notification function combines Mitsubishi Motor Maisart image recognition technology and vehicle video camera information to identify potential dangerous objects, such as cars, humans and other moving objects, located outside the driver's line of sight. The object facing the driver is identified by the driver monitoring system (DMS). The system monitors the driver by camera. By comparing the direction of the moving object and the direction of the driver, the blind spot of the driver is estimated. On this basis, the driver is warned by the monitor and the alarm. Tests of Mitsubishi Motor show that the system is particularly effective in detecting objects and attracting driver's attention.
Natural navigation uses DMS and a series of microphones (multiple microphones that record sound simultaneously) to detect when the driver opens his mouth and to understand the driver's voice cues. It is worth noting that the system can not only recognize voice, but also distinguish the questions that the pilot wants to ask about the navigation system and other irrelevant conversations between the crew. Drivers can talk to the system in a highly natural way to provide and receive information.（Edit by Chongqing Feilong Jiangli）

Ford F-150 Which we are already very familiar with, the classic model has long dominated the sales list in the United States. Recently, Ford CEO Jim Hackett announced at the Deutsche Bank Global Automotive Industry Conference that "we will use batteries and hybrids to bring the F-series link hidden, please login to view into the electric age. We are also preparing the same for Ford Transit trucks. We launched the plug-in hybrid version of the Ford Transit truck and will electrify the Ford Transit series worldwide.
However, F-150 won’t be the first electric pickup that Ford ever made. Ford has already produced one electric pickup, Ranger EV, which was appropriately built in Edison, N.J from 1998 to 2002.
In last year, Ford announced that it planned to "make 16 electric vehicles to market by 2022," and said the first model to be launched would be a pure electric CUV with a 300-mile range. At that time, the plan was to launch the hybrid version of the F-150 by 2020. As for the pure electric version, it would be more backward. Obviously, under the pressure of Tesla and Rivian, Ford adjusted its product launch plan.
link hidden, please login to view In other words, the original planned F-150 hybrid version is still in production, but at least one of the F-series that will be launched later will be fully electric. This is just one of the many electric car announcements that Ford released last week. Other announcements include Ford and Volkswagen announced that they are considering co-developing electric vehicles; American automaker premium brand Lincoln also announced that it will produce a Ford Mustang Electric version of the electric car; Ford Mustang electric car should be Ford's first all-electric car, it will be designed and manufactured from the beginning, and will be listed next year.

Natural rubber (NR) mainly consists of rubber hydrocarbon (polyisoprene), containing a small amount of protein, water, resinic acid, sugar and inorganic salt.
High flexibility, high tensile strength, good tear resistance and electrical insulation, good abrasion resistance and drought resistance, good processing, easy to bond other materials, better than most synthetic rubber in comprehensive performance.
The disadvantages are poor oxygen resistance and ozone resistance, easy to aging and deterioration;
Poor oil and solvent resistance, low corrosion resistance to acid and alkali;
Low heat resistance.
Temperature range of use: about 60 ℃ ~ + 80 ℃.
Making tires, rubber shoes, rubber pipes, tape, insulation and sheaths for wire and cable, and other common products.
It is especially suitable for manufacturing torsional vibration eliminator, engine shock absorber, machine support, rubber - metal suspension element, diaphragm and moulded products.

When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.
Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.
You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.
Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.
The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.
Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.
Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.
