China Special Vehicle Autonomous Driving Industry Report 2020: Progress of Autonomous Working Vehicles Sanitation, Airport, Agriculture and Mining

DUBLIN, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The “Special Vehicle Autonomous Driving Industry Report, 2019-2020” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report highlights progress of autonomous working vehicles in four fields: sanitation, airport, agriculture and mining.

Autonomous working vehicles that run on relatively closed roads and fixed routes, are often free of public road traffic rules, making for popularization of highly automated driving technology. Although the COVID-19 pandemic hinders the development of autonomous driving at airports for the time being, autonomous driving technology for sanitation, agriculture and mining is developing by leaps and bounds.

Autonomous sanitation vehicle

Urban autonomous sanitation street sweepers shall travel at speeds lower than 12km/h according to China’s national standards. The use of autonomous driving technology in sanitation field enables all-weather and more efficient operation subject to strict specifications.

Volvo wants to patent a design that could bring sliding steering wheels to its future automated vehicles. Volvo

  • Volvo filed a patent application for a steering wheel that slides side to side within a car’s cabin. 
  • The design would allow passengers in a highly automated vehicle of the future to move the steering wheel out of the way and have more room to stretch out. 
  • The technology would likely face a long regulatory road if Volvo ever sought to include it in a production car. 
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Although driver-assistance systems are the new craze, true autonomous vehicles — cars that will allow for driving without any human intervention — are still nowhere close to hitting the streets.

Nevertheless, Volvo anticipates a future with automated driving technology so advanced that steering wheels become optional — at least, judging by a patent application the company

What is the impact of developments in autonomous driving on the automotive shielding market?

“Automotive Shielding Market”

Automotive Shielding Market by Shielding (Heat, EMI), Heat Application (Engine, Turbocharger, Battery Management, Fuel Tank), EMI Application (ACC, ECU, LDW, BSD, AEB, FCW, DMS), Material Type, Vehicle (PC, LCV, HCV), and Region – Global Forecast to 2025

The global Automotive Shielding Market size is projected to reach USD 24.7 billion by 2025 from USD 20.2 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 4.1%. The growth of the market is driven by increased adoption of electronics-based safety systems and the growing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles.

Increasing focus on active safety systems and car assessment programs would drive the demand for ECUs in modern vehicles. Similarly, more such ECUs and other sensors would require superior EMI protection. The increasing number of accidents due to distraction and alcohol-impaired driving fatali ties has become a major concern for lawmakers. In 2018, out of total 36,560 fatalities in the US, 10,511 were

Zooming More, Driving Less: When to Ditch Your Car | Personal-finance

Parting with your vehicle would let you ditch monthly car payments and related expenses, like gas, insurance and repairs.

Even a parked car is a source of stress.

Like when you run outside in your pajamas at the sound of the street sweeper coming. Cars left unattended for days might become a target for theft or vandals. They still need routine maintenance, the occasional car wash and a drive every few weeks to circulate the fluids and recharge the battery.

So with the pandemic changing the way we work, commute and shop, there’s probably no better time to see what life feels like without a car.

Here are four reasons to consider a car-free future:

1. You don’t (and won’t) drive much anymore

How many days last week did your car just sit? How many miles have you put on it in the past month?

When the pandemic hit, many companies sent their employees home to work remotely. Total miles driven plunged by 40% nationally in the

After driving into a tree, drunk driver complains the vehicle he hit swerved into him: Broadview Heights Police Blotter


Drunken driving, Windsor Way: On Sept. 6, police were dispatched to a one-car crash on Windsor Way.

An arriving officer located a red Chevy Trax, which struck a tree. The driver, who was still in the Trax, smelled like booze.

When asked if he had been drinking, the man slurred, “Oh, yeah, a couple of drinks.” The man then attempted to explain the car crash to the officer.

He said the car he hit swerved into him. At that point, the office corrected the driver and told him he actually hit a tree.

The driver then looked up and admitted he indeed hit a tree. After failing a field sobriety test — during which he said, “You are going to arrest me anyways, you might as well do it” — the man was arrested for drunken driving.

The officer also found liquor in the man’s front pocket.
