Doorstep Car Disinfection Done Right

With the constant lockdown extensions and quarantine, everything around us came to a standstill – including the vehicles that we drove almost every day. While most of us adapted to the new regimes, we parked our cars and left them until it was legal to drive them again.

Reduce the risk of COVID-19 in your car

With WHO declaring the COVID-19 a pandemic, the coronavirus has sparked a global awareness about cleanliness and sanitation. While we are urged to wash our hands multiple times a day to stay safe, what happens when we get into our cars and travel for hours every day?

It’s common knowledge that our cars are filled with everything that we bring into it every time we get in and out. We drag into our car all the dust, dirt and various germs that our clothes and shoes have touched. While cleaning our cars should be a regular habit, it should be a bigger priority when a pandemic virus is involved.

There are plenty of companies that offer car Interior Detailing at affordable prices with free doorstep pickup and delivery. Booking such a service is definitely the easier option, however, if you decide to do it yourself, keep yourself and your passengers safe and healthy with these tips:

– Always wear disposable gloves and a mask when cleaning.

– Give your seats a thorough vacuuming to get rid of as much dirt off the seats first before starting the cleaning.

– Use a foam brush or a paintbrush to clean between your AC vents. Vacuum off the dust and wipe it down with either sanitizer or soap and water.

– Scrub down your seats, seat covers and carpet rigorously with soap and water. While bleach is known to kill viruses, do not use bleach on your car interiors as it will damage your car’s upholstery. The three main types of material used for car seats are leather, vinyl, and cloth, each needing different cleaning methods. So it’s best to do some research to find the product that suits your needs.

– Clean your dashboard and your infotainment system with a good alcohol-based sanitizer and a soft thin cloth, especially around the touchscreen console.

– Make sure you thoroughly sanitize all door handles, the steering wheel, shifter handles, seatbelts, and all other surfaces you touch the most in the car.

Once you’ve finished cleaning, don’t forget to wash your hands. Also, wash or sanitize your hands before and after driving. Keep a bottle of hand sanitizer in your car at all times, so you can keep yours and passengers hands clean whenever you get into your car. Washing hands, cleaning and disinfecting surfaces are two of the best ways to defend against spreading the coronavirus; keeping the vehicle in which you commute daily, a clean and healthy environment is highly recommended.

How racing technology from Formula E is changing perspectives on EVs

Motorsports has always been a way for manufacturers to develop and test out new technologies, and these technologies have constantly impacted the cars on our roads. High-level motorsports – such as Formula One, and more recently Formula E – has always been a way of testing new technologies for road cars.

Mahindra is just one such example. Having been a manufacturer of electric vehicles for 18 years, according to team principal Dilbagh Gill, being a part of the racing series has helped jump-start their experience with more powerful vehicles and to plan for a new round of more upscale consumer EVs. The motorsport has further exposed Mahindra to carbon fibre and composites construction and applications.

Formula E is the world’s first fully-electric international single-seater street racing series and has become a way for technology partners such as Williams Advanced Engineering, as well as manufacturers including Nissan, Jaguar Land Rover, Audi and BMW to develop new solutions for electric road cars. James Barclay, team director at Panasonic Jaguar Racing explains: “ABB FIA Formula E has been central to Jaguar Land Rover’s move towards electrification…The Formula E programme will generate tangible R&D benefits, with the technology developed and lessons learned on the race track helping to accelerate the electrification of future Jaguar Land Rover road cars.”

Changing Perspectives:
Formula E is not only leading the development and adaptation of the technology we see in our road cars, but it’s starting to change perceptions of electric vehicles by showcasing that if electric racing cars look that cool, then consumer electric cars can be just as impressive. The sport is showing people that electric cars aren’t boring or slow.

IoT in Vehicles: The Intelligent Car

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way we live and the way we drive. Using advanced sensing and inter-connected data, the next generation of intelligent transportation systems has brought us into the era of the ‘intelligent car.’

IoT technologies used in vehicles offer a variety of solutions, including connected car solutions:
– Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS)
– In-vehicle infotainment systems
– Navigation & telematics solutions
– Vehicle to Pedestrian (V2P) for safety and mobility solutions
– Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) applications
– Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) applications
– Vehicle to Everything (V2X) communication applications

With an estimate that at least 75% of cars will be connected in 2020, the growth of the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) creates a transportation system that knows who we are and where we want to go.

What is the Internet of Things?
According to Intel, “The Internet of Things is an evolution of mobile, home, and embedded devices and applications that are connected to the internet, integrating computing capabilities and using data analytics to extract valuable information and sharing data over the cloud .” In simple terms, IoT refers to everyday items being connected to the internet to make life easier. This means that you can control specific items remotely, via a smartphone app, to communicate with other products.

For example, if you run out of milk, your connected refrigerator will automatically send you a reminder when you walk past the dairy section in the grocery store. Or if you’re driving around and need to find a parking spot – since your car is connected to the internet, the parking meter connects to your car and tells you where the empty parking spot is.

How does IoT work?
Connected vehicles refer to the wireless-enabled vehicles that connect and communicate with their external and internal environments. The intelligent car is constantly being equipped and upgraded with technology to make us better connected with the elements both inside and outside the car; enhanced navigation, streaming infotainment, enhanced safety features, and especially the integration between the dashboard with smartphones and wearables.

Bandwidth Evolution:
The key technology to an intelligent car is 4G LTE. LTE possesses the speed, low latency and IP-connectivity, to enable high-quality in-vehicle applications. LTE guarantees speed and quality of service and improves vehicle connectivity dramatically.

With the goal being to achieve a safer and greener mode of transportation, connected cars are the future.
