In this issue of ATR, we take an incisive look at some future mobility technologies that we think are the ones to watch out for. The future looks exciting!
usd front forks provide performance edge
motorcycles have featured front suspension for over a century, with bmw being the first manufacturer to produce a motorcycle with hydraulically damped telescopic forks in 1935. currently, a majority of motorcycles use telescopic forks for the front suspension. the telescopic front fork is made of fork bodies, which are the shock absorbers that contain coil springs inside an oil-sealed enclosure, into which the solid fork tubes, or stanchions, slide to provide damping action.
intelligent networking of chassis, driveline, and driver assistance systems
around the globe, more and more people are moving to cities, creating the same challenges for rapidly growing megacities everywhere: too little space for too many cars. people are demanding not only holistic mobility solutions, but also vehicle concepts for urban private transport which enable mobility in the long run and reach future co2 standards down to zero local emissions. therefore zf developed the advanced urban vehicle, a test vehicle that meets all these requirements: the vehicle is locally emission-free, extremely manoeuvrable, and net worked with driver and environment.
cutting-edge tech defines iconic japanese supercar
starting with its introduction in the late-1960s, the nissan skyline gtr in its various avatars, has been the first japanese high-performance car to achieve cult status globally and a huge fan following worldwide. unlike some over-the-top european supercars, the gtr has humbler sedan origins, but over the years it has evolved into a fearsome high performance coupe that’s been dubbed ‘godzilla’ by the motoring press. the skyline gtr had its first production run from 1969 to 1973, and the name was then revived in 1989, with production ending in 2002. nissan brought the gtr back to life in 2007, though the company decided to drop the ‘skyline’ name, sticking with just ‘gtr.’ the earlier model’s inline-six was also replaced by a twin-turbo v6 and many other detailed technical changes were made to this seminal japanese supercar. the latest, 2017-spec model of the gtr was recently launched in india, with a price tag of close to rs 2.0 crore. here we take a closer look at some of the car’s underlying technologies that make it such an awe-inspiring performance car.
