Around the world, initiatives are being taken to replace gasoline and diesel fuel due to the impact of the fossil fuel crisis, increase in oil price, and the adoption of stringent emission norms. Increase in energy demand, stringent emission norms and depletion of oil resources led the researchers to find alternative fuels for internal combustion engines. Many alternate fuels like Alcohols, Biodiesel, methanol, ethanol, LPG, CNG etc have been already commercialized in the transport sector. In this context, pyrolysis of solid waste is currently receiving renewed interest. The disposal of waste tires can be simplified to some extent by pyrolysis. The properties of the Tyre pyrolysis oil (TPO) derived from waste automobile tires were analyzed and compared with the petroleum products and found that it can also be used as a fuel for compression ignition engine. Test was carried out using 10%,15% and 20% blend of pyrolysis oil with diesel.D85 P15 blend found better in brake thermal efficiency. Ethanol was added in the concentration of 5%, 10% and 15% to Diesel-TPO blend. It was concluded that emission of HC and CO found reduced after adding ethanol into TPO-Diesel blend.
The number of automobiles produced is increasing rapidly worldwide that has motivated the need to develop vehicles providing safe and comfortable transportation with better fuel efficiency and less environmental pollution. With increase in use of automobiles, the number of deaths due to road accidents are growing in large number. In this aspect, major concern of an automobile is the safety of passengers and the most important safety feature of an automobile is the brake system amongst others. Advancements in electronics and computer technology led to development of more efficient braking systems, an anti-lock braking system is one such component which has become a standard safety feature in recent times. Numerous publications are dedicated to the design and development of various anti-lock braking system algorithms and it is essential that these algorithms are analysed and tested not only by simulation but also in suitable testbenches and prototype vehicles. In this thesis, an ingenuous concept of a brake testbench is presented which is developed mainly to study and test alternative anti-lock braking system and traction control algorithms.
A locally fabricated Brake Pad Test Rig was successfully used to evaluate the wear rate and braking effectiveness of two samples of automobile disc brake pads at various speeds and braking forces. Detailed design analysis of the test rig, which was also used to determine the average stopping time at a constant pressure of 10bar, and subsequently, at a constant speed of 980rpm, is presented in this work. Results obtained from the performance test carried out on the rig show the functionality of the test rig.
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.To work with a system, users have to be able to control the system and assess the state of the system. For example, when driving an automobile, the driver uses the steering wheel to control the direction of the vehicle, and the accelerator pedal, brake pedal and gearstick to control the speed of the vehicle. The driver perceives the position of the vehicle by looking through the windscreen and exact speed of the vehicle by reading the speedometer. The user interface of the automobile is on the whole composed of the instruments the driver can use to accomplish the tasks of driving and maintaining the automobile.

Ethylene glycol is most commonly found as the primary ingredient of automobile antifreeze and hydraulic brake fluids. It is a toxic, colorless, odorless, almost nonvolatile liquid with a sweet taste. Following ingestion the symptoms of poisoning follow a three step progression starting with intoxication and vomiting, before causing metabolic acidosis, cardiovascular dysfunction, and finally acute kidney failure. The major cause of toxicity is not the ethylene glycol itself but its metabolites. The major metabolites causing toxicity are glycolic acid and oxalic acid.
The BMW M Coupe is a Shooting-brake styled high-performance automobile produced by BMW. As of February 2009, two generations of the M Coupe have been manufactured, one based on the E36/8 Z3 Coupe and the second off of the E86 Z4 Coupe. Both generations have a sister,Convertible/Roadster model available. Though a second generation E89 Z4 has been released for the 2009 model year, no official announcements have been made regarding the third iteration of the BMW M Coupe/Roadster.

The Maserati Birdcage 75th was a concept car created by automobile manufacturer Maserati and designed by Pininfarina and the design team, including Jason Castriota under the guides of Ken Okuyama at Pininfarina. It was first introduced at the 2005 Geneva Auto Show. It was named to honor the classic Maserati Birdcages of the 1960s and Pininfarina's 75th anniversary. The original car intent was discussed and pursue originally by Paolo Pininfarina, Pininfarina S.p.A, Franco Lodato and Peter Aloumanis, from Motorola during a business gathering in September 2004 at Pebble Beach, California. The Birdcage 75th is built on the carbonfibre chassis of a Maserati MC12 GT1 race car and shares many components, most notably the engine. The Birdcage 75th is powered by the Ferrari Dino F140 V12 engine of the MC12 and the Enzo Ferrari mid mounted at 65°th's engine has been tuned for racing and as a result produces around 700 brake horsepower.
