Backup Cameras Are Popular



0 comments
Did you know that Backup Cameras are becoming one of the most requested features on a vehicle. 34% of US Adults are aware of what a Rearview Camera does and the number of people expressing interest grew by 23 points year over year.

“Backup cameras are one of the most popular features. In years past it was strong, but I wouldn't say it was at the top. This year, it’s among the top four,” said David Duganne, senior Research Director for Harris Interactive.

Safety Devices such as Blind Spot Warning Systems, Backup Cameras and Pedestrian Sensors are all gaining interest in the eyes of consumers in comparison to satellite radio and voice activated systems.

With technology changing rapidly and options to add features from the dealership or aftermarket 12volt firms, the engineers at DVD Bypass have developed Backup Camera Interfaces for about 80% of cars on the road that have LCD screens or navigation.

We believe safety is important and will be donating a portion of each sale to KidsAndCars.org to help advance their just cause.

FORD E-BIKE



Have you noticed more scooters and bicycles on the streets lately? Alternate forms of transportation are officially mainstream, and that hasn’t been lost on Ford, which has unveiled the E-Bike Concept. That’s right, an electric Ford bike!
“The E-Bike market is growing very, very rapidly, with some 30 million units sold globally last year,” explained Axel Wilke, Director, Vehicle Personalization, Ford Customer Service Division Europe. 

E‑Bikes are being utilized for short-distance commuting, so Ford decided to respond by showing how easily its design language could translate to a bicycle. Developed by a Ford Design team led by Executive Design Director Martin Smith, in partnership with cyber-Wear, the German brand behind the Ford Lifestyle Collection products, the Ford E-Bike Concept has been created from the ground up to appeal to both men and women.


             


The E-Bike has a trapezoidal frame profile, and has been constructed from aluminum and carbon; the frame weighs about 5 pounds. The wheels have a six-spoke V-design, while the drive system is hidden, creating a clean, minimalist appearance. Power comes from a drive system featuring a motor in the front wheel hub, with a lithium-ion battery concealed in the frame, promising a range of up to 52 miles on a full charge.

The E-Bike Concept also has an integrated controller and patented magnetostriction sensor technology from the world of Formula One. Magnetostriction – don’t hear that word very often, do you? 

Magneotostrictive materials are used to convert magnetic energy into kinetic energy, and vice versa. 

In Formula One, these sensors help handle high engine revolutions in combination with intense thermal strains. They need no physical contact with other parts of the engine, are temperature-independent and are completely maintenance-free.

The Ford E-Bike is the first application of this technology in the bicycle industry; the sensors read the revolutions in the inner bearing and relay this information to the control unit within a hundredth of a second. The control unit then instantly activates or deactivates the electric motor, providing a seamless integration of the power of the legs with the power of the motor. 

Meanwhile, a handlebar-mounted display provides trip information and allows the rider to select from three support modes: Economy, Comfort and Sport.


You bike geeks will appreciate this: 

The drive system is complemented by top-of-the-range bicycle components, including a Shimano Alfine 11-speed internal gear hub and a Shimano Rapidfire shifter. In place of a traditional chain is a Carbon Belt Drive System, making for a cleaner, lighter and more immediate transfer of energy.

Technical Specifications:
  • Front wheel hub motor 
  • Max. nominal power: 350W
  • Electricity: 36V – 250W

  • Range: Up to 85km (depending on drive power and support mode selected)
  • Temperature range: -20°C to +60°C



















Controller display functions:

What do you think?

Should Ford build the E-Bike for public consumption? So far, there are no plans to produce it, but that doesn’t mean it won’t remain under consideration along with other mobility solutions Ford has planned for the future.

MyFord Touch


MyFord Touch promises to enable drivers of Ford cars to seamlessly integrate nearly all mobile phones, PDAs and digital media players into their cars. Operation of these devices, utilizing advanced Ford Sync functionality, is performed using voice commands, touch-screen inputs, the vehicle's steering wheel, radio controls, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. MyFord Touch is also capable of receiving text messages and reading these text messages aloud to occupants of the car

As an advanced in-car infotainment system, the MyFord Touch for Ford vehicles uses voice activated technology that understands and recognizes many voice commands. The focal point is the factory Sony touch colour screen that comes equipped with an AV Input, USB input, RCA jacks as well as an SD card for photos and videos.

Current Ford Vehicles equipped with the MyFord Touch infotainment system with the AV Input are not able to view the source / video while in motion. Like the older model Ford Sync infotainment system of yesteryear, a DVD Bypass will allow for all features that are currently "locked out" to work while your Ford is in motion aka video in motion.

The AV input can be used for pretty much any device that passes a signal through the RCA inputs of the device. You can add a DVD Player to the factory screen and view a movie will your Ford automobile is in motion or you can add your iPod with your favorite YouTube videos or movies


About Us:


DVD Bypass specializes in OEM Integration specifically tailored to the vehicles needs allowing integration of Audio/Video Input, Video in Motion, Backup Camera and more into the world’s finest automobiles.

FORD OEM INTEGRATION


The Ford Motor Company was founded in 1903. Ford has been a synonymous voice within the automotive industry for over 100 years. Henry Ford Sr. was known for his innovation that catapulted vehicles into commodities for the masses. In 1908 Ford introduced the Model T, which became one of the most popular cars in the world and the beginning of mass production on an assembly line.

Flash forward a Hundred years or so. Ford is still a synonymous name in the Auto Industry and continues to push the boundaries of innovation. Recently taking the plunge with their Microsoft "Sync" system, it allows Drivers equipped with this radio to use voice activated commands for control.

Chrysler


Chrysler was one of the "Big Three" American automobile manufacturers. It sells vehicles worldwide under its flagship Chrysler brand, as well as the Dodge, Jeep and Ram. Other major divisions include Mopar, its automotive parts and accessories division, and SRT, its performance automobile division. 

In 2014, Chrysler Group LLC is the seventh biggest automaker in the world by production


Chrysler Video in Motion


The Chrysler brand was originally a premium luxury position competing with Cadillac and Lincoln, owned respectively by Chrysler Group's Detroit rivals, General Motors and Ford Motor Company. Chrysler was the top brand in the portfolio of what was then known as Chrysler Corporation, led by its top model, the Imperial.

After the corporation decided to spin Imperial off as a separate brand in 1955 to better compete with Cadillac and Lincoln, Chrysler became the corporation's number two brand, but still offered luxury and near-luxury products. Chrysler's positioning of the Chrysler brand towards a mid-price brand caused Chrysler to kill DeSoto after 1961 and merge most DeSoto vehicles into the new Chrysler Newport. After the Imperial brand was dropped in 1975, Chrysler once again became the top brand.
