The morning sun gleams over the clouds and onto some of the most sought after and beautiful cars as early bird competitors line them up at car shows all across the country. Among the cars presented are those that prestigious car clubs, (such as Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA), Rollerz Only, GTO Association of America, Majestics, and Red Knights Motorcycle Club), and major manufacturers have submitted. Many of these are rare one of a kind cars, or are first-off-the-line prototypes of the manufacture's coming year's models that thousands of people from all over line up in the early morning hours just to see.
A sad, but none-the-less true, fact is that wherever there is a large crowd of people, there will always be a minority among them that would take advantage of any situation or opportunity that may present itself to vandalize or steal one of these cars, especially since they are often left overnight. With crowds as large as those found at most car shows, it is expensive to hire a security team, and when in place the security guards can only cover the most critical areas - leaving large sections of contestant cars exposed. Having a mobile surveillance system at the event, especially at night, is a practical and safe thing to do for several reasons:
Theft and Vandalism Prevention
The principal reason for a mobile surveillance system is for it to function as a deterrent to thieves and other criminals. Wherever they are present, they monitor suspicious activities, will detect a person and alerts them that they have entered a restricted or secured area, that they are being recorded on video, and that they should leave immediately. These types of cameras are equipped with DVR technology and wireless Internet in order for them to be controlled by a remote camera and viewed remotely on using any internet browser.
Legal Protection and Use as Evidence
Another excellent advantage to having a mobile surveillance system at a car show is that if any of these suspicious events are detected, the camera begins to record the criminal activity (including sound) taking place, providing legal evidence against criminals in potential prosecution cases. Many cases have been closed, and criminals have gone to prison, thanks to instances where such requisite video surveillance proof has been used CR9081.
Lower Insurance Premiums and Taxes
Depending on the contracts that a host of a car show has drawn up with insurance companies and agents to protect the competitor's automobiles, a mobile surveillance system can reduce insurance premiums over a long period of time. Also, the purchase of a mobile surveillance system can be claimed by a business as a relevant tax deduction. It is also interesting to note that in cases where there is public record of these systems, these records will protect the insurance companies from false theft and robbery claims.
These are some of the many reasons that mobile surveillance systems are advantageous in protecting car show and other event competitors from disdainful criminal activity - allowing automobile aficionados and fans to wander through the aisles of cars and appreciate the beautiful, and unmarred Autel MaxiCOM MK908Pro, sheen of their favorite makes and models as they gleam in the morning sunshine at their favorite car shows.For more information on affordable security solutions for outdoor events check out our Outdoor Event Security trailers and Redding Video Surveillance

Alloy Wheels are definitely "in" these days. Those bling-bling wheels you see on most vehicles today are all alloy wheels and they are gaining more fans and popularity everyday.
So what exactly are alloy wheels and how are they different from normal wheels? Are alloy wheels better than normal wheels?
These are the types of questions I intend to answer in this article.
Alloy Wheels perform the same function in automobiles as the normal steel ones but there are certain added features in alloy wheels that make them different and arguably better.
Compared to wheels made of steel, alloy wheels are composed of aluminum or magnesium alloys making them stronger and durable, lighter in weight Maxiap AP200 Price, better in performance and most importantly, stylish. These wheels are manufactured either by the process of casting or by forging of metal alloys.
Forged alloy wheels are lighter and much more durable than cast alloy wheels but they are a little hard on the pocket. Forged alloy wheels are usually the preferred choice for high-performance sports cars but that does not mean you can't fit them on any other car. Comparatively, cast aluminum alloys are heavier but they are cheaper and yet have almost the same styling as that of forged alloys.
There is however another type of stylish alloy wheels called Mag-Wheels. Magnesium alloy wheels or mag-wheels are whole magnesium cast or forged wheels used in racing cars as they are the lightest alloy wheels available. Mag-wheels are high on performance as well as on styling.
Unmatched style is probably the main reason why most people now prefer alloy wheels for their vehicle. There is no doubt that alloy wheels make the vehicle look posh and increase its cosmetic appeal but there are two other definite advantages of fitting your car with alloy wheels instead of the normal steel wheels:
• Alloy wheels are lighter, that means your vehicle has less unsprung mass. This means your vehicle handles better and there is improved road grip on most terrains Autel MaxiCOM MK908P. A lighter vehicle will obviously perform better on the mileage count as well.
• Alloy wheels are also good in terms of balancing. Your vehicle balances well reducing stress on other parts of your car like the suspension and the axles.
Besides that, did we discuss the style that alloy wheels add to your vehicle?
You no longer require those fuzzy hub-caps and you can definitely avoid displaying those ugly looking steel rims. No matter how elegant your car looks, if the wheels are not up to the mark, it may be a case of "bride without the ornaments". And indeed, wheels are ornaments, the ones to be proudly displayed. Alloy wheels maintain their luster for years (if maintained properly) and shine with that metal-chrome finish, enough to make your neighbors burn with envy.
A fact worth considering is that used alloy wheels and rims are available in the market at one-third the price of brand new ones. You get the style and features of alloy wheels without spending much.
With all this information at hand, I am sure you are equipped to search for the best alloy wheels for your car and tread the roads in style.James Rodham is the Information Architect at

You will need some speakers, amplifiers, a head/stereo unit and a subwoofer. The stereo unit is normally installed directly into the dash and would usually include a cassette or CD player.
Installing new speakers in your car can make a huge difference particularly if they have never been replaced before. Factories concentrate on building cars that pass auto tests rather than incorporating great speakers.
It isn抰 difficult to install new speakers providing you do your preparation work. You need to measure properly to ensure the new ones fit. The speakers should glide into position. If you have to force them Autel MaxiCOM MK808TS, they are the wrong size. People will tell you that you can cut space for the new installation and of course this is a possibility. But be warned, more than one would be engineer has cut through vital lines such as the fuel or hydraulics.
The speakers will come with a full set of instructions but they cannot possibly cover every make and model of car. So if in doubt, save yourself the hassle and let the experts do it.
If you want to achieve a surround sound effect, you will need to install an amplifier and a subwoofer as well Autel ml629. You can easily blow your new speakers if you don抰 have a powerful enough amplifier. When choosing the new stereo system for your car, make sure to pick a company that has a great customer service reputation just in case there is a problem. Audio products are notorious for being faulty and that applies to the best makes as well.

It started out simple enough. Historians may argue the chronology, but "Active Safety" likely began with the "horn," an effective way to alert the guy ahead of you that you might run into him if he doesn't move. Then someone came up with the idea of something called a "turn signal" to let other drivers know which way you were thinking of going. That led to another great idea, "brake lights" that let the guy behind you know you were slowing down.
Active safety has mushroomed ever since. Much of the safety technology developed over the past 50 years has focused on protecting people in a crash -- reacting to an impact with passive safety technology like seat belts and airbags. The future of active safety seeks to help prevent accidents in ways the inventor of the horn never imagined.
One of the most common active safety systems widely used today is anti-lock braking. Anti-lock braking senses impending wheel lock-up and pulses the brakes many times a second -- faster than most humans could -- allowing drivers to maintain steering control under severe braking conditions Autel Maxicom MP808. The brake controllers for ABS also enable traction control and dynamic stability systems; the three lie at the heart of most near-term active safety systems. Among these systems are sensors that monitor the angle of the steering wheel, the front wheels and the vehicle itself; the speed at which each wheel is turning; the engine speed; and, in some cases, how hard the driver is hitting the brakes. The electronic components process this information in milliseconds and take corrective action to assist the driver.
This is where we are today, but the technology that will soon be available to consumers will take active safety to another level. The elements of adaptive cruise control and steer-by-wire will be added, and radar might sense impending collisions and either warn the driver or enable the vehicle to take evasive action itself.
With steer-by-wire and active suspension, the vehicle can correct oversteer or understeer with brakes, the engine, steering and perhaps shocks. This is also referred to as integrated chassis control, which uses not just the brakes but also the steering, engine and other systems within the chassis. In essence, the active suspension system analyzes what the driver is asking the vehicle to do and decides how best to achieve that result. In other words, it would be much harder for a driver to lose control of a vehicle if an active safety system could steer to counteract unwanted turning in a braking maneuver. While the system would take input from the driver's controls -- the steering wheel, brake pedal and accelerator pedal -- it could just as easily take commands from outside the vehicle, perhaps from an intelligent highway system.
Suppliers and engineers believe that integrated chassis control could become commonplace in 10 years. The leading edge of this technology is an enhanced handling system called active roll control. The system uses hydraulic input from the steering system to actuate hydraulic cylinders in the front and rear sway bars so they resist leaning when the vehicle turns or follows a curve. Currently, rollover sensors are available to help indicate if a rollover is imminent. The sensor assesses the vehicle's inclination and in conjunction with other inputs, such as vehicle speed and lateral acceleration, warns of extreme inclination or the potential for vehicle rollover.
Also well along the development cycle is adaptive cruise control, also known as intelligent cruise control or smart cruise control, a system that is already in production. One such system features a single radar unit both mid- and long-range capability. The system's processor is contained in the same box as the radar, and the entire unit is hidden behind the front grill. The radar looks forward, while the processor interprets the distance to the vehicle ahead. If the car ahead gets too close (a pre-determined limit entered by the driver), the processor sends a command to the engine controller to slow the engine; and if that's not enough, it sends a command to apply the brakes.
Collision avoidance systems may evolve from adaptive cruise control by adding short-range radar to the front and side. This would work in tandem with a panic brake-assist system currently available. This system measures master-cylinder pressure; if it detects a very rapid application of the brake pedal, it uses the motor pumps from the traction control or dynamic stability control system to build brake pressure at the wheels faster than the driver could manage alone crp129x launch.
Automotive suppliers are looking not only at radar, laser and infrared for collision warning and collision avoidance systems, but also at optical systems - cameras which collect data that is interpreted by a computer rather than driver-displayed. Both optical sensors and angular-rate sensors determine whether there's an obstacle in a vehicle's path. That's the easy part. The challenge becomes understanding the vehicle's intended path, particularly when that path involves a curve in the road. Once the system recognizes that the vehicle is going around a curve, it would be able to determine whether an object is actually in the vehicle's path. An intelligent system that can tell the road is curving will know that a car that looks like it's directly in front is really in another lane.
Increasingly sophisticated advances in active safety will continue to blossom over the next decade, including stop-and-go cruise control, pre-crash sensing, forward collision warning, side and rear blind spot detection and lane change warnings. The more pieces of active safety that are fitted together, the closer the industry comes to being able to turn over control of a car to an on-board or off-board computer in emergency situations, on "smart" high-speed lanes of crowded highways or perhaps even full time during regular driving conditions. Of course, that much automated control could eventually become a "hot potato." The concern is likely to be whether drivers and buyers are ready for it. The fact is, automakers aren't going to spring entire active safety systems on the public all at once. As is already the case, the ingredients will be added gradually, piece by piece.Mike Trudel, Freelance Writer. Delphi Corp. is a leading innovator of automobile safety equipment and technology.

One such component are the brake pads. And if you own a car that is owned by many others such as a Honda Accord then you can expect there to be great options for Accord brake pads for you to choose from when it is time to replace them. Brake pads are that component which rubs against the brake rotors to generate friction. This happens when you press down on the brake pedal. This friction in turn creates a retarding force that helps slow down or stop your car. Though their function seems simple enough there is a lot of research that has gone into making a quality brake pad. For one thing they should be durable and should not get worn easily which will mean that they will need to be replaced often. Then also when the large amount of friction is being generated they will get heated up and they should be able to withstand the heat and keep producing the friction. Older brake pads produce gases when heated which takes away from their performance.
You can consult your car mechanic about the brake pads when it is time to replace them Autel Maxiap AP200. You will be easily able to find and buy the latest Accord brake pads by going online. Once you have installed the latest brake pads you will find the car responds better to pressing on the brake pedal. It will enhance your car control and will make driving your car less stressful.
