For the 2011 Los Angeles Design Challenge, which was seeking to find the most spectacular new film car for Hollywood, the designers from the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Sindelfingen (Germany) and Carlsbad (USA), have joined the ranks of the screen-writers.
The designers at the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio in Carlsbad, California have created a Hollywood-style homage for Mercedes-Benz to 125 years of innovation in automotive technology and design. The leading roles are played by two high-tech characters which have been instrumental in reconciling safety and stylish design in automobiles: the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow cult racing car and crash test dummies.
The film "Silver Lightning" is set in the near future, in an age of artificial intelligence. Two crash test dummies by the names of Hans05 and Franz02 take on evil ruler Dr. Crash-Barrier to save their beloved Mercedes Silver Arrow. They engage in an action-packed, nerve-jangling duel with the ruthless battering ram before finally outfoxing him. The Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow Concept is a low-lying sculpture on wheels. A feat of technical innovation is the diagonal, hubless roller which allows steering in all directions. The futuristic Silver Arrow's proportions are reminiscent of the legendary sports car from the late 1930s and the Uhlenhaut SLR from the 1950s.

Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the
Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads
autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or
further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle
which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric
motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on
the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet
drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When
underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to
light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are
supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

take matters into their own hands. As the evil battering ram Dr.
Crash-Barrier seeks to continue his reign of terror and mayhem, the two
heroes take action to save their beloved Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow. They

the past and future of transportation.

Silver Arrow has proportions reminiscent of the Mercedes-Benz W125 series,
a Silberpfeil racecar of the late 1930's and the Uhlenhaut SLR from the
50's. The overall shape follows distinguished Mercedes-Benz design
traditions and is born from a dominant Formula 1 racing legacy. It also
features a diagonally configured, hub-less roller track for

ETF Mining Trucks MT-240 full turning circle
ETF developed a unique steering system. All wheels are steered at low to
medium speeds reducing tyre wear, while at higher speeds the last two axle
lines gradually change to nearly rigid resulting in better stability. ETF
trucks are equipped with a special speed-proportional steering system. At
very low speeds, such as when spotting the loader, the system requires only
two turns from lock to lock. The whole system works automatically without
interference from the operator..
