History of the Automobile By Kalenthomas, David perry, carlosReynoso
How their powered • Older automobiles were generally powered by a steam engine, which was fed by burning gasoline. • Most automobiles in use today however are propelled by a internal combustion engine, fueled by gasoline or diesel. Both fuels are known to cause air pollution and are also blamed for contributing to climate change and global warming. • Efforts to improve or replace existing technologies include the development of hybrid vehicles, electric and hydrogen vehicles that do not release pollution into the air.
The worlds fastest street legal car • The BugattiVeyron 16.4 super sport it Is the fastest street legal car that you can buy right now for 2.4 million dollars. • top speed 267 mph • 0 – 100km/h: 2.5 sec • 16 cylinder engine • 1200 HP • 4 enlarged turbochargers
New ideas • Research into future alternative forms of power include the development of fuel cells, Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI), stirling engines, and even using the stored energy of compressed air or liquid nitrogen. • New materials which may replace steel car bodies include duraluminum, fiberglass, carbon fiber, and carbon nano tubes.
The future • robotic cars, or driverless cars, already exist in prototype, and are expected to be commercially available around 2020. • They could reduce the world's 800 million vehicles to a fraction of that number within a few decades. This would also allow for getting the appropriate vehicle for the particular need • a bus could come for a group of people, a limousine could come for a special night out, and a Segway could come for a short trip down the street for one person. • Children could be chauffeured in supervised safety, DUIs would no longer exist, and 41,000 lives could be saved each year in the US alone.
