3D- Vehicles

For example, it could actually make it easier to buy a car. The average price of a used car increased by $10,000 in the past decade and, in a struggling economy, that increase can make it difficult for many families to afford newer and more reliable vehicles. 3D printing could offer a way to reduce auto prices, making cars more affordable to consumers.

Another fun aspect of 3D printed automobile parts is their adaptability and personalization. Since 3D printing uses a computer program with specified sizes and parts, it's possible to equip most existing vehicles with 3D printed material if designed properly.

Yes. First of all, 3D printing may be more cost-effective when it comes to producing a few cars, but as volume grows, there are natural constraints. For larger-scale vehicles and parts, traditional methods are likely to remain superior, at least for now.

Every day, almost 3700 people are killed globally in crashes involving cars, buses, motorcycles or pedestrians. More than half of those killed are pedestrians, motorcyclists, or cyclists. Crash injuries are estimated to be the eighth leading cause of death globally for all age groups and the first leading cause of death for children and young people. As reported by the U.S. Department of Transportation, more than 90\(\%\) of car crashes are attributed to drivers errors. The adoption of autonomous vehicles is expected to improve driving safety and traffic efficiency. Therefore, an accurate environment perception system is necessary to reduce the traffic accidents.

In 2020, Waymo made fully driverless taxis commercially available in Arizona, US. For now, Waymo is the only platform to transport passengers by fully autonomous vehicles, and it is seen as an industry leader.

ApolloScape dataset was provided by Baidu Inc. The 3D LiDAR object detection and tracking dataset consist of point clouds and high-quality labels. It is collected under various lighting conditions and traffic situations in Beijing. More specifically, ApolloScape dataset contains very complex traffic flows mixed with vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians.

In February 2021, the California DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) released new autonomous driving data for the year 2020. The California DMV annual Miles Per Intervention (MPI) is one of the key measurements of autonomous driving, reflecting the average miles of each intervention annually. It is widely regarded by the industry as a more objective, quantitative and accurate measure than driving experience test. As the analyze of the different intelligent vehicles manufacturers, and along with the excellent research and development institutions, the best testing results until now are listed in Table 3. As the Table shows, the top 10 testing results are listed here, and the intelligent driving technology of Waymo company possesses the best performance.

This paper also summarized some shortcomings of the 3D object detection systems applied in autonomous driving. First, in the practical application of driverless vehicles, obstructing and surrounding environment confusion will lead detectors to miss the target object in the traffic. Second, there will be a great amount of data to process in the traffic, while most algorithms cannot meet the requirements of real-time in autonomous driving. Third, in unmanned driving, the real-time performance of 3D target detection is difficult to be guaranteed and the accuracy of 3D target detection is not high enough for safe self-driving.

A typical car plant costs between $500 million and $1 billion to build, and the tooling and machinery are amortized over many years, which is why they need to produce hundreds of thousands of vehicles per year to be profitable. Divergent 3D promises it can build a production line for 20,000 or more cars a year in a warehouse-type space, complete with large-scale 3-D metal printers, laser cutters and assembly robots, for just over $50 million. Because of lower capital and production costs, vehicles would be up to $6,700 cheaper to build, on average, Czinger says.

In place of Detroit's megafactories--or Elon Musk's Gigafactories--21st-century manufacturing will be ruled, Czinger believes, by networks of small-scale urban plants like his. They'll be able to deliver low-cost, lightweight, low-carbon vehicles in small and highly customizable batches.

The company built the elegant Blade supercar in 2016 to demonstrate its technology, and will continue to subject that vehicle to structural durability tests to validate its assembly techniques--including using high-strength adhesives rather than welding to bond sections of the vehicle together--as it works on concept vehicles for other companies.

Standard: 02 When a lane is assigned full or part time to a particular class or classes of vehicles, the preferential lane word and symbol markings described in this Section and the preferential lane longitudinal markings described in Section 3D.02 shall be used.

06 Where a preferential lane use exists contiguous to a general-purpose lane or is separated from a general purpose lane by a flush buffered space that can be traversed by motor vehicles, the preferential lane shall be marked with one or more of the following symbol or word markings for the preferential lane use specified:

07 Preferential lanes for motor vehicles shall also be marked with the appropriate word or symbol pavement markings in accordance with Section 3D.01 and shall have appropriate regulatory signs in accordance with Sections 2G.03 through 2G.07.

Ford fans can now download digital images for Ford vehicles at the first-ever, automaker-authorized one-stop online store for 3D-printable vehicle files. The Ford 3D Store,, allows customers to use advanced technology to make their own models of Ford vehicles of the size and material they desire, or simply opt to purchase a 3D digital file from a growing library of more than 1,000 Ford images.

Available 3D-printed Ford models include the new Ford GT, F-150 Raptor, Shelby GT350R, Focus ST and Fiesta ST. Printed models and digital files for additional Ford vehicles will be available at a later date.
