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. Gli altri sponsor che danno vita a Design Los Angeles sono Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry (INDA), Lacks Enterprises, Inc., Dassault Systemes e Bose.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
