Engineering Challenges make more efficient cars

Competitions have been created for car creators in order to test the newest driving technology that is out there and they can sometimes affect not just the industry but companies on a micro level like truck driving jobs in Miami. Technology in industries like the automotive industry have to remain competitive and that’s where the friendly competitions come into play where producers of these vehicles get to test out their latest advancements in a fun venue.

One such of these challenges is the Volvo Drivers’ Challenge that seeks to use the competition to advance the future of the transportation industry.

Passion, energy, commitment to safety and enthusiasm for what they’re doing will be what makes the difference when it comes to these competition and will ultimately be the fuel for success and driver for excellence. Fuel efficiency of the vehicles will change the game even for truck driving jobs in Miami. The savings to be made alone with more fuel efficient vehicles decreases the cost of overhead and could result in more truck driving jobs in Miami.

The selection process for who wins these competitions over time has changed as well. It’s not just about who can win a singular competition but the competition took place over a period of time so that they could test the vehicles doing their everyday driving jobs. This type of testing is more beneficial than fabricating an environment that vehicles would not even be in the majority of the time and produces better results to analyze later so that they can make even more concise improvements to vehicles relative to the work they are actually doing.

The winners were chosen this way to show the real world ongoing impact of the changes that had been made to the vehicles since the previous years. Proving that you can use large trucks that can carry large loads uphill while doing the activities that are required for many jobs is the especially satisfying when you know that the trucks are even better on fuel than they were before.

They’re able to conduct these competitions by using Dynafleet technology that can accurately relay the drivers performance information and they’re able to pull that data from all the drivers who are participating in the competition which is something before this sort of technology was around was unheard of. What this means at the end of the day or should hopefully mean is that improvements will be able to be made even faster over time.

This new software gives the analyst a fuel efficiency score as well as giving the driver feedback on how they drive as well ranking them on a one to one hundred scale in four areas that are considered key: Engine and gear utilization, Standstill, Braking and Speed adaptation.

The higher the score is the lower the overall fuel cost will be and the less CO2 emissions are produced which makes the vehicle not only more fuel efficient but is a more environmentally conscience vehicle with a reduced carbon footprint. Safety of the vehicle is also something extremely important. Every drop of fuel counts especially when the prices of fuel are so variable in nature. The places where the Dynafleet technology really shines is it’s ability to not just improve the fuel efficiency and carbon footprint through the results it records and produces but also it’s ability to make drivers who use it better drivers instead of just criticizing their driving ability and highlighting it. The ability to do that makes it a great piece of technology for multiple reasons and increases the value of adding it too your arsenal.
