2019 – FIAT 500e BY HARMAN INTERNATIONAL

Harman International is one of the numerous technological companies that are present at CES 2019. This important event for the technology industry, celebrated in the city of Las Vegas and where year after year the automotive sector has more protagonism, welcomed the launch of interesting projects. One is from Harman International, a company owned by Samsung, and based on the Fiat 500e. Taking as its starting point the small and affordable Fiat electric car, Harman aimed to create a safer, connected and, above all, ‘smart’ car. The result appears in the images below. Harman International experts have made a lot of modifications on the small Italian town. The main point of this technologically retro-looking Fiat 500e is that it has a set of components that allow the vehicle to monitor, record and evaluate what is happening in its environment. It equips a series of cameras that are critical to the operation of driving assistance systems such as blind spot alert, track maintenance assistant and rear collision warning. Through a long-range radar, the vehicle is able to detect cars driving along the track to maintain a safe distance. It also equips a system that allows to monitor the driver himself. From your vision to the position of the head and the diameter of the pupil. This monitoring system also analyzes the heart rate and breathing of the passengers. Harman International points out that for level 3 stand-alone driving technology it will be crucial for the vehicle to know at all times whether the driver is ready to take command if necessary. Aesthetically the changes undergone by this example in relation to the Fiat 500e that is marketed in the United States are remarkable. After the conversion, a car without a roof appears and without conventional mirrors, since they have been replaced by cameras. As for the passenger compartment, what is most striking is the two new digital screens that it presents. They are generously sized and one of them is used as a digital instrument panel, while the other crowns the central console and serves to manage the infotainment system. Now the interior appears more clean and elegant.

You use your car everyday, and you depend on it for a variety of reasons.

You need your car to get to work and back, to hang out with your friends and your family, and to go shopping for groceries. You depend on your car so much that it only makes sense to keep it in as good of condition as you possibly can. Your car did not come cheap, it is the second most expensive thing that the average person is going to buy in their lifetime, right behind a house. Your car was not only expensive to buy, it is expensive to take care of as well. When you factor in everything that goes in to your car you will see how fast it adds up, between regular trips to the auto mechanic in order to ensure that your car is running properly, keeping the correct amount of air in the tires, and even putting gas in your car every day all cost money and all add up pretty fast. With how expensive it is to take care of your car and how much you depend on your car every day it only makes sense to keep it in great working condition. The first step to keeping your car looking good and working great is almost always overlooked. Getting a cover for your car is essential to keeping your car in prime condition. But with all the different types out there on the market right now, which one should you choose? The answer is simple.

When looking for a cover for your car you need to look for something that is reasonably priced, is going to work, and is going to fit your car. The answer, weather shield car covers. Weatherstrip car covers are great for anyone who does not park their car in a garage at night, it is simple to put on your car and it is going to work at protecting your car from harsh weather and other elements that can damage your car. When looking for a weather shield cover you should always look online as this is going to be your best bet. You are going to find a wider selection of covers online as well as find the perfect match for your car. Another great thing about looking online for your weather vintage vehicle cover is that you are going to be able to find the best prices and have a better chance at getting a deal. When a car is kept outdoors, it is exposed to the wonders of nature. Whilst we may stop and appreciate it, our cars do not. Nature has elements that can be quite harsh on cars. They will pull your car to pieces in no time, and this is not an exaggeration! The sun is very powerful. Its ultraviolet rays are very dangerous and harmful. The exterior of the car becomes totally ruined. Paintwork of the car gets bleached, and the finish melts; the result is a horrible, plain, drab, colorless car, that looks nothing like it’s former beauty. All the vibrant color, shine, and luster are lost.

When the car is left standing in the sun it overheats. This ruins the internal workings of the car. In addition, the car becomes unbearably hot and stuffy, so much so, that it is impossible to drive in. The driver is even in danger of burning his fingers on the steering wheel. Rain will leave awful watermarks over the exterior of the car so that it looks a complete spectacle. After a while, the wet and dampness cause the bodywork of the car to rust and rot too. What’s more is that the high levels of acid in the rain cause the car’s paint to disintegrate, and it peels and gets all patchy. The same is true with snow, only snow will freeze the car over as well. This is exceedingly dangerous as the brakes also freeze over. When brakes are frozen, they do not work efficiently and effectively enough and can cause fatal accidents. Windstorms are a real pain in the neck when it comes to keeping our cars in good condition. The wind blows everything that has been left in the streets. So, all those pieces of rubbish and rubble, including stick and stones are swept up in the windstorm and made to fly through the air. When doing so, they end up scratching and denting the car as the whip past and get thrown about by the wind.

Aside from all of these, there are the well known, bothersome bird droppings, tree sap and dust that continuously gather and pile up on our cars. There leave a despicable mess, take hours to clean off, and give a lot of aggravation. However, with a car cover, none of this is a problem. An all-weather car cover is waterproof so the rain, sleet and snow issues are eliminated. It is also ultraviolet resistant, and therefore the sun’s harm cannot work its way through to the car. Naturally, nor can dust, bird droppings, and tree sap. The cover will also be able to act as a cushioning agent to the car so that no impression is left on the car itself when knocked about. All in all, a car cover will help you preserve your car and keep it in the condition you deserve it to be in. When selecting a car cover, it is important to make sure that the manufacturer is a good one. Many times there is the cheap imitation of ‘the real thing’ and this is totally inadequate. An imitation cover will not be able to perform as well as the original. There will be a defect in some way, and considering it’s your car we’re talking about, you don’t want to take chances.

You have spent so much on your car as it is, you need to be sure that the protection you are giving it is the best, and not compromise in any way. It is not worth it in the long run to buy a cover that is unable to protect the car properly. You will end up paying out more money on repairs and cleaning the car etc. You will also get extremely frustrated because these things are not supposed to happen if the car has a car cover. So which manufacturer is a good one? You will want to choose from companies such as Covercraft and or Coverking. Both have a very high reputation in the field of car covering, or in fact, any vehicle. They have been around for many years already, and have invested much time and money into researching various fabrics for covers, and their protective properties. The results speak for themselves. All their covers are of excellent quality and extremely durable. Customers can testify to the extent of their satisfaction which is almost always 100%! Having a good manufacturing company is also very important should a problem arise. Covercraft and Coverking are tops when it comes to customer service. They treat each and every customer with the respect they deserve and are highly reliable. You will not have to spend hours chasing up your case, they will deal with it exclusively, and will not rest until the case is closed, together with the customer’s satisfaction.

You will probably want to be sure that the wholesale company that you are making the purchase from is reliable too. If you are buying online, it is so very easy to get conned. Unfortunately, con artists are getting better and better, and more and more people are falling into their traps. When looking at a prospective website, you should check their policies, and terms and condition etc. These often feel like a waste of time, and as if they all say the same thing, but it is their legal binding, and therefore, from this, you will be able to check their reliability. You can also read up reviews of previous and existing customers. This is also very important and will give you a better idea of how trustworthy and honest the company really is. You will also probably be able to get recommendations on car covers that other customers have bought, which will help you select the one that is good for you.

It is tough to spend money on things you might consider a luxury in today’s economy. To some extent, it’s true that every extra penny needs to be hoarded and saved for a rainy day. It can be a wise move to do exactly the opposite in another way entirely though. Right now, your car may be in great condition. Maybe you recently bought it within the past couple of years. Your car might not get much outdoor use now, especially if you utilize public transportation to get to your job. Whatever the reason, it probably makes sense to you to keep doing what you’re doing and not purchase any additional accessories for your car. That assumption could leave you hurting for cash in the future much more than you realize, though. Unforeseen events happen all the time, and cars do not last forever. The one time you drive the car all month, you could have a rock hit its hood, for instance. Even if your car is in storage, it could get damaged without you even being aware of it. The end result of either scenario is that the car is still damaged, though. To get it fixed, this will ultimately end up costing you quite a bit. To have fixed by a professional, even the smallest car dents or scratches can cost hundreds of dollars. You’ll end up paying a lot of money for relatively little damage, as a result. For saving you money in the future, this is also why investing in a custom car cover now is a smart choice. Custom car covers may seem like an extravagant luxury to some, but they’re not. Instead, they’re a financially savvy investment to avoid plenty of costs in the future. As well as saving your car from unexpected problems like flying rocks, custom car covers ultimately protect your vehicle against normal wear and tear. Since their material is non-abrasive and won’t scratch your car, custom car covers are made specifically to fit and protect your car. The message is straightforward: pay a little bit now to save yourself a lot later.

When kept outdoors, the car is left at the mercy of nature, which, to be frank, is not very merciful at all. The rain, snow, sun, wind, etc, all of them have diverse effects on the exteriors as well as interiors of cars. To begin with, the rain leaves ugly water-marks and causes the body-work to rust with time. The acid in the rain eats away at the paint-work and makes it very patchy. The snow freezes over the car, including the brakes. This is extremely dangerous as it prevents the brakes from working efficiently enough, and could be fatal. If a car is left in the sun, the interior over-heats. This damages the internal workings, as well as making it rather unbearably stuffy to drive in. As for the exterior, the paint-work and finish get bleached and worn away due to the ultra-violet rays from the sun. The car will end up looking much older than it really is. Wind-storms bring up with them anything that has been left lying in the streets, such as sticks and stones. When these are made to fly through the air in the wind, they scratch and dent cars along the way. Birds muck and tree sap are two nuisances a car will be stained with when it is parked outdoors. These stains look most unsightly, and they are extremely hard to get rid of.

It doesn’t make a difference if the car is parked indoors or outdoors, either way, the car gets dusty. Dust gathers anywhere and makes the car look old and worn out. When the car is parked indoors, it is still not safe from scratches and dents. As the garbage is being taken out, it will often bang and knock the car. If the bag contains something a bit heavier this can leave a permanent impression on the exterior. Also, garages are usually not the most spacious, and when people squeeze past the car the can scratch it if they have things hanging from their pockets or belts. These little accidents are seemingly nothing, nonetheless, they leave visible marks. A car cover will prevent all of the above from wrecking the car. All-weather covers are waterproof and ultra-violet resistant and will protect any car from the sun, rain, and snow. The cover itself will be able to absorb the shock of knocks and bangs and prevent the car from getting dented and scratched. There are covers specifically designed for the indoors. These two will be able to prevent a car from getting scratched and dented and are also dust-proof. They are water and UV resistant, though on a much lower scale to outdoor covers. This is so that owner can benefit from an occasional outdoor use too.
