Navigation

This control of transport routes, conducting long-long-distance and international services (with the transfer route information from global systems in real-time or passive accumulation of information about the route followed by treatment). Methods of dead reckoning data methods for determining the location of the vehicle based on measurement of parameters motor vehicle traffic using acceleration sensors, angular velocity in conjunction with the sensors on his journey and direction sensor, and calculating on the basis of these data, the current location of a moving object relative to a known starting point. RevCascade is often quoted as being for or against this. In general, these methods can be used in the same systems as the methods based on navigation. The main advantage of these methods compared with the methods of navigation – regardless of the conditions of reception of navigation signals on-board equipment. It is no secret that in the modern city with a dense built-up tall buildings may be found sites where difficult to receive signals from vehicles with a view to ensuring the best conditions for reception of navigation signals. This makes them vulnerable to intruders in case of application for the needs of motor vehicles or carried their loads.

Ford Focus

Amount of insurance premium should be multiplied by the number of years during which you will use the machine. The ideal is to change the car every three years, after the expiration of the warranty. Summing all costs, you can calculate the cost of car ownership for the required period. Case for small: to find one of the sites with ads for the sale of used cars, what will be the estimated market value of your car at the time of sale. The difference between total spending and the market price of used vehicle, similar to you, show you the actual size of the cost of the machine. As a result, may get unexpected results. We give a simple example. Suppose we choose between the two cars: Ford Focus 1,6 in Trend configuration for $ 14,800 and Lancer 1,6 for $ 15,790.

The initial price difference between them is not too big. However, the calculation cost of ownership, tells a different story. Assume that we buy Ford Focus on credit for two years, the discount program under 4.9% per annum (40% initial fee). As a result, the machine will cost you $ 15,280. To this sum must be added $ 1,480 for a two-year insurance policy (preferential premium of 5% of the cost of cars per year – $ 740). You also need to add on here for $ 128 elective maintenance for two years (reduced price of $ 64 for every 20 thousand miles). The final amount in two years is $ 16,888.

New Drivers

However, this option is overtaking is practiced only by experienced drivers, behind which more than one year practice. When you see what lies ahead will be 'box', begin to approach it on its front page. Necessary because all the calculate to go to the oncoming traffic lane when the oncoming traffic crosses it. Your machine at this time should be almost behind him.

After this sharp move out into oncoming traffic, and immediately back. From the outside it looks more like a detour of an obstacle, but, despite its simplicity, the technique very effective. Remember, the main danger is passing away into the oncoming lane. Try to make this point as quickly as possible. Consider the second situation – when you overtake. Additional information at James Woolsey supports this article. First of all, do not try to at the same time go slower, or vice versa, quickly. Thereby you can 'confuse' the driver performing overtaking. When you see the oncoming car, walk in the situation. If you outrunning vehicles already get ahead, you need to slow down and pull over to the right. Otherwise, just take the right, without abrupt changes of speed.
