Brand Audi c heroes of tapes of Marvel studios, has long ties of close friendship: from “er-eighth”, which appeared in 2008 in the”Iron man”, and ending with advertising the new sedan A8 c spider-man.

A completely new type of entertainment in the car, announced by Audi before the opening of the CES show-2019 in Las Vegas was not even one, but several developments, which we describe in detail. First and foremost, is a game in which a car plays the role of a spaceship of the heroes of the marvel “Guardians” and “Avengers”. In particular, the companion of people there will be a Rocket. This is a reasonable raccoon, one of the characters of the universe Marvel, which will appear, in addition to “Detention” in the movie Avengers: Endgame (“the Avengers: Finale”), coming out this spring. The game is called Marvel’s Avengers: Rocket’s Rescue Run (“the Avengers Marvel: rescue Rocket”) and created by such companies as Disney Games and Interactive Experiences.

The range of innovations, Audi shown at the current CES, wasn’t entirely a computer game in the cabin, however, by design, it is one of the most unusual.

In this case, it is not a trivial game on the Central screen of the car. Passengers in the back seat “the throne” (he used the project as a basis, that is, the virtual reality platform) wear computer glasses displays and right while driving real cars “go into space”. Special feature — accurate and instant communication of the movement of live car and vehicle in the game. The driver turns right at some intersection, and the vehicle performs such a maneuver, only to loop around an asteroid or other space object. But passengers feel the real side overload in full accordance with the picture in front of them.

Accelerated electrocreaser on the road — accelerating vehicle in the game slows down, the machine slows down the ship. Judging by the remote control in the hands of one of the subjects, passengers are at the mercy given shooting asteroids.

Through its subsidiary, Audi Electronics Venture, Ingolstadt automaker he co-founded a startup holoride GmbH, who will be engaged in improvement of an interactive platform for gaming machine and its commercialization. And she is expected in three years. In the Audi Electronics and was developed this system, and now Audi intends to transfer holoride the license for the technology.

It uses the open source framework, suggesting further involvement of other manufacturers and content developers in expanding this augmented reality other games or formats of entertainment. It all together (movies, games, interactive programs) is called the Audi Experience Ride “experience in the trip in which he touched on all the senses,” explained the company.

Among the developments shown by Audi, and was cellular machine infrastructure type Cellular-V2X (C-V2X). It allows the driver to see better around the atmosphere and reduces the risk of accidents.

In General, the theme of entertainment content, communications with the outside world and services a recurrent theme in the exposition Audi in Vegas, where the company brought already known unmanned concept Aicon, and a number of models of shops in which the screens were shown various facilities like online ordering of functions on demand.

The Germans say that through the app, it will be possible to retrofit my car after buying, say, route planner, or contact with the service of charging electric cars or to improve the lights, paying for options or selecting from a subscription, paid monthly.

Features digital exterior mirrors and other advanced electronics like the unusual (again, interactive and digital) lighting systems, devices for charging of electric cars and even the problem of communication drones with pedestrians is also reflected on the show in America (a number of the exhibits are not covered in this review were in our “close-up”).

In the “home theater” Audi car plays the role of the audience. And this does not mean that the people inside just watching a movie on the screen ahead. It is much more difficult.

Finally, another amazing development: interactive theatre in the car called Audi Immersive In-Car Entertainment. In some ways this system is at its core the idea of the opposite first described the game in virtual reality. There’s movements of this car on the street or highway synchronously turned into a movement of the “ship in space” here — the action in the film transformirovalsya in the movement of the car, or rather, in a solid, the fluctuations of the body.

The audience experienced in the Audi Immersive In-Car Entertainment, said that particularly impressed vibration and shaking of a real machine (aka the auditorium) in combination with impressive sound audio system reproducing the track for the film.

Immersive works Audi in the Parking lot. That is, when the screen in the car or on the big screen in front of the car characters in the film jump off the roof, a real sedan, which sit the audience, like falls down. If the movie shows the chase and given the view from the interior of the car, a real car jumping and shaking in sync with the one displayed on the screen: here it comes in the active suspension “and is the eighth”, is synchronized with the film’s plot. It is in this synchronization is the main highlight of the cinema from the four rings. The timing of implementation of such a complex in a series of the Germans said.

The owners of gyrometers want to distribute traffic

Such transport is often used by children and adolescents. If the norm is accepted, then the audience may be significantly reduced.

Control over the actions of the owners of gyrometers, Segways, sigview and other small electric vehicles considered in the state Duma of the Russian Federation: on this topic was a round table. It is proposed to equate it to the moped: in this case, these “drivers” will be subject to the requirements of the rules of the road. The initiative came from the head of the Union of pedestrians Vladimir Sokolov.

Riding a scooter

According to the current legislation, to mopeds (light quadricycles) or the desired license category “M” or any other open category (the most common – “B”). If they equate gyrometer, Segways, etc., then their owners will also need a driver’s license.

Regulation segment is necessary because of pedestrians. During the round table the attendees remembered several cases: the first man on the electric skateboard was hit by a woman who fell and suffered a severe spinal injury; second driver electric skateboard collided with the pensioner, causing the latter died on the spot. Accident, these incidents can not be called, since from the point of view of the law in the pedestrian zone and collided with two pedestrians.

Segways - Journee Sans Voiture, Paris 2015

According to Vladimir Sokolova, similar cases are not uncommon (however, the statistics he had not). In order to be able to attract such “drivers” to justice, they should be subject to the relevant rules. Today they have been officially recognized by pedestrians and, in fact, can move in respective areas at a speed from 20 km/h on gyrometer to 50 km/h on a Segway.

Vladimir Sokolov offers to prohibit the movement of the small electric vehicle on the sidewalks. Agree not all. During the round table a proposal was made simply to limit the speed for those traveling on the Segways, Segways, etc: for pedestrian areas – not above 25 km/h, for bike paths, 60 km/h. the Catch, however, is that this electric vehicle has no speedometer.

It is curious that Russia is now allowed to create “Bike zone”, where it is allowed to stop motorists and motorcyclists, provided that they give way to all other traffic participants, and their speed will not exceed 20 km/h. it Turns out, the owners sigview will be able to drive on such roads three times faster? Or in this case, also will be subject to the terms and moped riders?

In Russia in 2018, has sold about 32 thousand Segways and about 10 thousand monowheels. Often buy them for children and teenagers. Recall that the right category “M” is issued from the age of 16. This means that in case of approval the proposal of the head of the Union of pedestrians, the number of customers of sellers of small electric vehicle, most likely, will be considerably reduced.

Last summer Kolesa.ru reported on the proposal of the Deputy from the LDPR faction, which advocated the registration of alternative transport.

geely fy11

Geely fy11. От стандартного этот вариант отличается круговым обвесом в цвет кузова (вместо «чёрного пояса»), накладками на двери, двумя парами выпускных патрубков, затемнёнными элементами, алой вставкой в решётке и большими колёсами. Можно считать FY11 кросс-седаном, как Renault Arkana.

From the standard this is a circular body kit in body color (instead of black belt), lining on the door, two pairs of exhaust pipes, darkened elements, al insert in the grille and large wheels. FY11 can be considered cross-sedans, like Renault Arkana.

The company Geely to be congratulated on the development of the first model on the platform of the CMA (not to be confused with BMA). It unites coupe FY11 with a compact “Swede” Volvo XC40 and differs from Satin, resting on its own “cart” Geely. The mid-size crossover with “crushed” the roof, the idea will become the biggest and most expensive SUV in the range, and therefore, waiting for the flagship we have.

The issue of the official pictures shows about the imminent premiere. However, the Russian office Geely today sent along a teaser with the words about the similarities of the car with a predatory cat, grille “in the form of a concentric universe” and running lights like the “digital boom”. Say, a design center in Shanghai has found a new direction.

Recall the dimensions: length, width, height — 4605×1878×1643 mm, wheelbase — 2700. It is not surprising that the dimensions of the rookie close to the platform model Lynk & Co 01: 4530×1855×1654, 2730 mm.

Architecture interior Geely FY11 is more similar to a compact Geely SX11than all the other models in the CMA-kneading. This is a standard interior, no red inserts and stitching, and veneers “under carbon”. It’s funny that the handrail on the console can be confused with a “poker” of the Parking brake.

Under the hood of the SUV FY11 if prescribed turboservice 2.0 (in Swedish terminology T5), derated from 254 to 238 HP at the same torque 350 N•m. there are rumors about the use volvovsky Turbotronic 1.5 in the hybrid setup of the PHEV. In short, the forecasts are also on the Coupe, rolling brand Lynk & Co. Where, by the way, coupe from Volvo?

Not enough or too tight threaded joints in the front axles (manufacturer preferred the term “tight improper”) has forced Audi to recall in our country, twelve instances of models A4 and A5sold in 2018. Will check them and if needed will replace the “wrong” parts in the chassis. Of course, free for owners.

A list of VIN codes of the vehicles falling under this opinion, as usual, can be downloaded from the website of Rosstandart on the link.

Interestingly, in the last couple of A4/A5 spoke in Russia as recently as November 2018 and also because threaded connections. One time improperly was screwed on the fuel rail. And besides, both of these models fall under a service campaign in the summer and fall about the potential of failure of the coolant pump.
