Transcript of Lets think about automotive engineering

Automotive Engineering History Safety - Ralph Nader’s 1965 book Unsafe at Any Speed: The Designed-In Dangers of the American Automobile
Karl Friedrich Benz (1844-1929) in 1885/86 Fuel Source – Electric Cars, Hydrogen powered fuel cells
The Idea To simply improve communication between drivers
How To use HID lights, or High Intense Discharge lights, to create a color scheme for automobile headlights.
Red, white/yellow, Blue.

In addition, a secondary horn which represents an apology. Takes 30 seconds to warm up to full power
If the light is turned off, it must cool to a certain temperature before it can be reignited.
Disadvantages Advantages In addition to being more efficient, HID lights also produce brighter and more intense light because the entire capsule of gas is used instead of just a small filament in the middle of the bulb. This also means that the light will be distributed more evenly than with a standard bulb. This advantage in light quality is a major reason why HID systems are preferable for automotive and gardening lights.
How it works HID lights have a capsule of gas instead of the tungsten filament. The gas is actually used to produce light instead of simply slowing the decay of the bulb. Two electrodes are positioned close together and hermetically sealed inside the gas capsule. The electrodes are wired to a ballast containing a circuit board with several high current capacitors, transistors, and resistors. The ballast acts as the light's control center, igniting the light and then regulating its power flow.
