Cloud Emerges As Inevitable Transformer Of Auto Exterior Design

Cloud Emerges as Inevitable Transformer of Auto Exterior Design

The basic rationale for designing a hull of a vehicle is to improve functional reliability. For this reason, the interior and exterior must be at par, with each aiding the other. To facilitate this coercion, cloud computing technology has come to the rescue with its virtual methods of building high-end vehicles within a short turnaround period. This, as the following snatches will reveal, is also impacting on the interior as well.

Designing on the Cloud

An Australian racing pair has done what many would not have thought plausible in the latter half of 2012. They have made a body shop out of software which has enabled them to make a car of a kind, a process that would have required twelve months in the usual assembly plant. Testing and experimentation with the hull, ignition, gear system and the engine all took place in a simulated setting on a computer. The end-result is a superb Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) that can compete with any other that has come out of a conventional assembly plant, thanks to the cheap technical help of the cloud.

Less Hardware Footprint in Interiors

Cloud computing is also transforming the hull while indirectly improving the interior. The minimalism that one espies in the driving seat, which ironically can now do everything with almost nothing is an example of this breakthrough. Infotainment systems, consisting of an Internet screen, radio set and multimedia player, all in one, is an example of how change can be rapid in the auto scene. It is no wonder then that auto makers are concentrating on more comfortable front seats where there is plenty of room for drivers and privileged passengers for all the multimedia is now hosted at a remote locale.

Sensors reducing space needs

Designers of hi-end motor vehicles always place a lot of attention to GPS systems and other tracking technologies with sensors. Be it because of telemetric or biometrics in a vehicle, one will always espy aerials and router boxes appearing somewhere inconvenient inside a vehicle. As cloud computing provides more storage, however, sensors will no longer need a whole set of equipment or even manual testing at select stations: they will only need a receiver in the vehicle while the rest of the load will transmit from a remote station. This will impact marginally in a more comfortable vehicle with superb sensor and tracking abilities but more room in it.

Finally, exterior and interior designs will find a tie in the elimination of basic, cumbersome equipment for Internet access. There will be no more necessity for bulky hardware but just Wi-Fi connection though cellular means which, literally, will take no space. In fact, vehicles will belie their external look to that of the interior. The way one sees the vehicle from the outside will be the same they will find in the interior unlike now when a smart car turns out to be only too much short of space in the interior due to a barrage of accessories. Furthermore, the lighter the vehicle becomes the cheaper it will be possible to avail it.

  1. This clever cloud strategy we’re sure will be applied in many fields
    if it can be used in something as complex and driven as auto industry
    design, such as surgical tools or technologies in the medical field,
    anything with an engine, obviously, and maybe even high end complex
    architectural design and landscaping (Dubai anyone or earthquake country), even theme parks. Possibilities are endless. 
    Not to mention drastically reducing R & D timelines wow … be prepared …
