LOS ANGELES, 1 dicembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Subaru Global Design vince la competizione Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge 2012 dopo la presentazione del suo veicolo SHARC (Subaru Highway Automated Response Concept). Come modello futuristico per il monitoraggio delle autostrade 24 ore su 24, SHARC offre soluzioni di protezione e risposta rapida alle emergenze per il pattugliamento delle autostrade delle Hawaii
Il tema del Design Challenge di quest'anno, Veicolo di pattugliamento autostradale 2025, ha chiesto ai principali studi di progettazione automobilistica di creare il veicolo definitivo per il pattugliamento per le forze dell'ordine nel 2025 che sostenga le esigenze degli ambienti urbani dinamici. Sei studi di progettazione automobilistica di BMW, General Motors, Honda, Mercedes-Benz e Subaru hanno presentato progetti di veicoli avveniristici con tecnologia drone, capacità terrestri e aeree, sistemi per veicoli elettrici e veicoli alimentati da risorse rinnovabili dotati di scanner topografici.
Ha dichiarato Chuck Pelly di Design LA: "Tutti i giudici sono stati impressionati dall'elevato livello di innovazione e tecnologia dei finalisti di quest'anno. Lo SHARC ha catturato la visione del tema del Design Challenge combinando funzionalità e tecnologia per la risoluzione dei problemi con una storia dinamica e plausibile".
Con la collaborazione globale fra i suoi studi di progettazione, le menti creative di Subaru hanno sviluppato l'avveniristico SHARC come veicolo di pattugliamento autostradale, economico e attento alle problematiche ambientali, che soddisfa le rigorose normative ambientali UltraGreen delle Hawaii, senza impatto di carbonio. Rispecchiando le tendenze, visibili in tutto il mondo, di riduzione dei budget per il pattugliamento delle autostrade, i veicoli SHARC sono alimentati ad energia rinnovabile e operano in maniera autonoma, eliminando l'esigenza di un vasto personale addetto al pattugliamento autostradale a tempo pieno.
I veicoli in concorso sono stati valutati da professionisti multidisciplinari della progettazione, che hanno selezionato il vincitore in base a diversi fattori tra cui: considerazione delle esigenze future per tecnologie avanzate, velocità e agilità sulle autostrade del futuro; creatività della soluzione; rispetto degli standard di emissione imposti, specifici per zona; e sensibilità ambientale per manutenzione e riciclabilità.
I giudici erano Tom Matano, Direttore Esecutivo della School of Industrial Design presso l'Academy of Art University di San Francisco; Imre Molnar, rettore del College for Creative Studies di Detroit; Steward Reed, Presidente di progettazione dei trasporti presso l'Art Center College of Design di Pasadena e Bruce Meyer, fondatore del Petersen Automotive Museum e benefattore per il mondo delle automobili.
Il Design Challenge è una competizione fortemente attesa in cui gli studi di progettazione automobilistica di tutto il mondo combattono fra loro per dare il meglio della loro creatività. I progettisti amano partecipare alla sfida in quanto si tratta di un'occasione importante per presentare i loro talenti ed esplorare ulteriormente nuove idee nella progettazione automobilistica.
Gli studi di progettazione partecipanti erano:
- BMW Group DesignworksUSA
- General Motors Advanced Design California
- Honda R&D Americas, Inc., Advanced Design Studio, California
- Honda R&D Company, Ltd., Advanced Design Studio, Tokyo
- Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America, Inc.: Advanced Design Center California
- Subaru Global Design
Il LA Auto Show Design Challenge è sponsorizzato da Faurecia, il sesto fornitore di attrezzature per auto per importanza mondiale, specializzato in sedili, tecnologie di controllo delle emissioni, componenti interni ed esterni per auto, e da Yokohama Tire, che lavora in stretta collaborazione con produttori di automobili di Stati Uniti, Europa e Giappone per sviluppare pneumatici destinati ai veicoli di ultima generazione.

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
