Regarding the EM/Bose suspension I can elaborate a bit why we don't have it already in cars I work for a company that supplies shock absorbers and suspension systems. And the reason the EM suspension is not yet in production is due to the following reasons. 1. Regulation : Every safety component (steering, braking, suspension,...) that can work fully electronic needs an mechanical and/or hydraulic back-up. That is also the reason we still have brake lines and a steering column. So an EM system also needs damping in case of an electrical shut off, and this means an passive back-up system in parallel that interferes with the EM system. 2. Power Consumption : Every electronically damper consumes power, which in the end comes from the fuel we put in it. The current active suspension systems can consume more than 4 kW of power in extreme conditions, and from the literature I found these systems consume more than 5 kW in normal use. This means without considering the losses of converting this power, you lose almost 7 hp or the fuel consumption goes up. Also every OEM is investing in electric cars and these systems will just eat away battery, in cars where people are already not really sure about the range they can achieve. At this moment it is simply a no-go to use a very high tech system that will make the car consume more power, while there are systems that can give a huge improvement which only use 150 W on average. 3. Production cost : the dampers are still quite complex to build in high numbers, so the price goes up. If you look at MB magic body control which is an € 5500 option on a € 110 000 car, the supplier will probably ask about € 3000 for the system. And MB charges extra for the added complexity to the production line, and also the control algorithm needed to make the car drive. My guesstimation is that these systems will be costing over € 10 k for the end consumer. 4. Driving pleasure : When we experimented with active suspension, the first thing we noticed was the feeling of detachment. This is dangerous because there is no sense of reaching a limit until it is too late. So the system was tuned to be a bit worse on comfort to regain the steering and grip feeling. So if you want this in a non-autonomous vehicle, you have to tune it to be not ideal in comfort for safety and driving pleasure. So again why waste € 10k in a system that cannot be used in it's full potential, and will be negative for the fuel consumption if you can have a € 5k (or less) system that will have a neglectable influence on fuel consumption and can be used for it's full potential. EM suspension will come in the end, but probably only in autonomous vehicles, because of the steering and handling feel. Sorry for the long text, but I hope this gives some explanation why it is not yet here.

paul broderick theoretically yes. But the current algorithms and controller strategies are not ready yet. Especially with systems that not only react but also act. Also it has to react properly in real life situations, unlike the video. You see that they have controlled events and tune the car accordingly to have the best response. In real life a pothole or bump is quite unique and needs a custom tuning setting.

ROAD TRIP! Prije godine
bloemundude There were some steam cars that produced steam on demand, wich was a lot faster than boiling the entire water tank, while the regular steam car took about 30 minutes more or less, these took about 5 minutes or less to create steam. Watch Jay Leno's garage, he has some examples of these kinds of steam cars. I think a more better reason they never took off was safety, a boiling steam tank exploding right next to you is something you definetly dont want

@bloemundude Yeah, but then the gas cars of that era too did take some time (tho not as much as steam) and a lot of manual effort to start, compared to which, steam was superior at the time. The electric starter motor just killed off steam and also the other electric cars of the time.

So I have to check you on the steam engine portion. A steam powered car held the land speed record for a while, not to mention they are incredibly easy to use and maintain. The main drawback was the time it took to bring a car up to full power. It couldn’t just crank and run like a gasoline engine.

Mercedes actually addressed the gullwing door safety issue with a cool solution there's these things that explode in the doors when you pull a level hidden on the door. This separates the door from the main body in the event to a rollover. (in SLS AMG)

I love how "can't get out of a car in a tight space" is always a reason for no gullwing doors in cars. Umm you can't get out of a normal car with normal doors if you're in a tight space either, and plenty of cars of those. granted you're right if the car rolls over, but most of the time normal doors are too banged up to get them open in a roll over too

Relative to ICE of the era steam was actually pretty fast, the problem was lack of mass production and the 30 to 40 minutes it took to get enough steam built up to begin driving. With a ford you could start diving within a minute or two.

3:51 Fun fact, Preston Tucker, the designer of the Tucker 48, is the reason for a lot of our modern safety features. His car was one of the first to have seatbelts as standard. I would love to see what the Tucker motor company would've looked like today if the Big 3 hadn't shut it down. His car was a rear engine, RWD sedan powered by a lovely H6 which allowed the car to hit a top speed of 130 mph. That might not sound like much, but remember, this was in the 40s

pauljs75 Prije 3 godina
Steam cars being slow is a bit of a misconception though. Some of the first to break 100MPH were steam powered. The problem was more to do with the fact it took 10 minutes to warm up the boiler from a cold start (just can't start it and go, it had to heat up and pressurize), and there was always some risk of having an exploding boiler with scalding hot pressurized steam. And the problem with turbines is they don't fare well with variable speed operation. If they can be kept at a constant speed, they can be more efficient. The ride stabilization thing is likely due for a comeback. Might be something for electric cars where you have a surplus of power for the type of system most suitable to fit in a small space. (Hydraulics or pneumatic systems are too bulky, but electro-linear actuators could be made compact - albeit a bit power hungry.) Also some cars in current production have been good at splitting the differences with magnetic controlled valving on otherwise conventional suspensions or magnetically variable viscosity on the working fluid inside.
WolfieBlitz Prije 2 godina
True “half” piston rotary, like what they have in biplanes. Laid flat in the rear of the car, these could potentially have more power than a standard v6 or v8 engine as they could span out to be 5/7 in one layer. Stack the layers and you instantly get more power.

I worked at Bose when they were working on the magnetic suspension. The major issue was getting a CPU that was fast enough to interpret the signals from the roadway to control it. The original development car was a Cadillac. Dr. Bose LOVED his Cadillacs. Later on they got it right apparently using a Lexus. I worked in IT, so I saw a lot of cool stuff. My NDA expired. Doesn't seem like it was that long ago I worked there, time flies.

You forgot to introduce the concept with the 5-'th wheel under the back wheels that could be used to park faster and more efficiently.

The sad part is that if the Tucker Torpedo were made today it’d be able to compete with modern cars cause it was so ahead of its time.

There was some invention alfa romeo had in one of its cars, they fitted the brake in the gearbox instead of the wheels to make cars lighter, more manouverable and also have a better ballance, I imagine they had efficiency, response or maybe performance issue with braking, if not, I can’t explain how it failed to take off

Next to the Bose suspension, one could mention Citroën's "Activa" system (SC.CAR) that did about the same.

I'd bring back anolog clocks personally. Mostly because I want to see kids reactions to an anolog clock in the glove box door. I know my personal reaction to it in my teen years was pretty funny looking back. It's still my favorite look for a dash though. Nothing says Luxury like an almost perfectly semetrical interior even the way the dashboard tends to curve up was done on both sides for style in the 40s

The Twizy is famous and found because they look modern, are electric, and for the country that have the law of the 16 year old cars, they are an alternative to those 16 year old allowed vehicles.

that bose suspension looks kickass. Is there a modern version of it, or do new lexus, or luxry cars have something similar

Id love some sort of nuclear fusion kind of power unit. And an automatic suspension kind of like the bose thing but then as in the 1993 williams in Formula 1.

That bose suspention and modular bodywork is best. I like even more the displayed vehicle,because of it's shape,how big it is and that you cand properly say you GET UP in the car,not go down.

The model x might have drawbacks, but it also received the only perfect safety rating ever, and always lands wheels up.

Toyota spent many years working on gas turbine vehicles right up until the mid 1990s and solved the throttle response issue - the result was the Prius gearbox.

I've wondered if the turbine could make a comeback as a generator for electric motors. I'm guess not, otherwise we would probably see turbine generators for other applications. However, putting the electric motor between the turbine and the delivery of power would get rid of the throttle response issue entirely. Small utility helicopters often use turbines because the power to weight ratio is immense, which makes me think there might be some usefulness there.

The steam engines were still powered by fossil fuel to generate steam in the first place. Instead, steam engines vs. internal combustion engines would better describe the situation.

Modular technology definitely should have a future. With electric drive, cars should become far more simple to design. Allied to modular tech, I would foresee being able to buy a basic chassis with drive, then spec different modules, along with buying optional modules in the future as needs require. In addition, being able to conveniently swap out life expired modules when they wear out, rather than having to scrap the whole car. What's not to like? It only requires a far-seeing start-up company to initiate such a program. India or China are bound to get there first.
