Iveco Vision Concept was presented in Hannover

Iveco Vision Concept was presented in Hannover

Commercial vans have some of the most mind-numbing designs in the automotive industry, making Iveco's Vision Concept stand out like a lighthouse for the lost. Presented at this week's 2014 Hanover International Motor Show, the Vision has the styling glitter we've come to expect from a concept that wants to demonstrate the future. 

Some of the van's standout features include the “see-through” front pillars, a rear camera that displays an image on a panoramic screen on top of the windshield, and a load management system that utilizes a series of sensors that "identify the goods and then indicate the correct positioning of these within the vehicle interior", according to Iveco. The Italians also chose an advanced powertrain solution named "Dual Energy System" that allows the vehicle to run solely on electricity at low speeds with a "thermoelectric" motor kicking in for longer journeys at highway speeds. 

Mercedes-Benz Unveils Future Truck 2025

Mercedes-Benz Unveils Future Truck 2025

After a sneak peek back in July, Mercedes-Benz has finally unveiled the Future Truck 2025 in all its glory. As the name implies, the concept truck showcases what to expect from the near future of trucking, including autonomous driving technologies. Still, all that hi-tech mumbo jumbo pales when you start start the engine and the plethora of LEDs light up the front fascia of the truck. It sort of looks like a Daft Punk helmet. But there's a catch to this visual gimmick: instead of conventional light units, orange flashing lights indicate when the truck is changing direction, but the light changes to white when the fully drivable concept truck is being controlled manually and on the move. When it's in full autonomous driving mode, the color of the LEDs changes from clear white to a cool shade of blue.

Tomorrow's truck promises to be a "revolution on the motorways." In order to do that, Mercedes-Benz fitted the Future Truck 2025 with an array of radar sensors and a suite of cameras dubbed "Highway Pilot" system. Basically, this highly technologized function is similar to the autopilot mode of a plane. In this regard, a complex sensor mounted in the front bumper scans the road up ahead to autonomously navigate the German truck. But wait, there's more! Nevermind the side mirrors have been replaced by digital screens running live video footage of what's behind the Future Truck, but get a load of this: a trick stereo camera can analyze 100 meters up ahead, 45 degrees horizontally and 27 degrees vertically to identify stationary or moving objects, pedestrians and single or two-lane roads. Then there's the sea of wood and touchscreens fitted throughout the cabin of the Mercedes prototype.

But this isn't an all show and no go contraption: as you can see in the promo video below, engineers tested the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 in the summer at speeds of up to 80 km/h (50 mph) in real traffic situations on the A14 motorway in Germany.

MZKT presented a new range of army chassis MZKT-6001

A new range of army chassis MZKT-6001 was created in order to provide the army and rescue units the highest level of mobility. MZKT-6001 range includes four basic chassis 4x4, 6x6, 8x8 and 10x10 in various modifications.

The highest smoothness and speed on different roads is achieved with a help of an unique long-stroke independent suspension. The chassis with installed equipment can overcome the most difficult natural obstacles, moving so gently that even the most complex and sensitive systems will not be subject to undue vibrations.

Increased mobility of chassis ensures by a full compliance with the standard road laws. This allows special techniques to move in columns on public roads, with a minimum of organizational activities.

All chassis include a six-speed automatic transmission of the last generation, modern engines made in Belarus in Russia, as well as electronic systems and self control systems of the car. Upon the request, a cabin of MZKT-6001 can be armored.
