Tata Technologies eMO EV Design Chief to Moderate Global Micro-Cars Interior Panel at Wards Auto Interiors Conference

Detroit, MI (PRWEB) May 17, 2012

Tata Technologies, a leading global provider of engineering services and product development IT, announced that Peter Davis, Chief Designer Vehicle Design will moderate a panel discussion titled Global Micro-Cars Interiors at the 2012 Wards Auto Interiors Conference on May 17, in Dearborn, Mich. Davis is the Chief Designer on the Tata Technologies electric MObility (eMO) engineering study EV, which made its world debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, and which was again on display at the SAE 2012 World Congress in Detroit last month.

Davis panel will take a detailed look at the challenges and possibilities of the micro-cars that are changing the world. Small is in, according to global automotive design trends; and panelists will share the latest ideas on where interior development is heading in these crucial vehicles. Davis will bring his personal insights from the eMO EV study to the discussion.

Designing micro-car interiors is a creative challenge, and demands a holistic from the interior-out mind-set, especially in North America, Davis says. What you dont do, is simply shrink a big car down. You have to preserve the interior space and find clever ways of making it even larger and easier to use. You need to push the green house architecture, and minimize the interior furniture, like we did on the eMO EV study.

We met that challenge, preserving a comfortable package for four adults, yet reducing the exterior size to a minimum. A high seating position, great visibility, a sensation of generous space, and easy ingress and egress were integrated into the vehicle architecture. Todays customers are used to great materials and finishes, and will expect richer interiors in these micro-cars. Micro doesnt mean cheap anymore, he added.

Panelists scheduled to participate on the Global Micro-Cars Interiors panel include Jay Hutchins, Director of Marketing and Product Planning Faurecia Interior Systems; Katherine Sirvio, Senior Design Manager Global Chevrolet Color and Trim, Chevy Spark; and Tim Yerdon, Global Director Innovation and Design Visteon.

The Wards Auto Interiors Conference is an annual gathering of leaders in the automotive industry, focusing upon automotive interiors engineering and design. The conference includes the Wards 10 Best Interiors awards; and scholarship awards to students from Detroits College for Creative Studies. Throughout the day, panel sessions will be presented providing the latest from industry experts on topics including environmentally friendly materials, connectivity, consumer needs, auto interiors and safety. http://www.wardsauto.com/interiors.com

As a ground-up EV study, eMO also incorporates design advantages over an internal combustion engine vehicle like smoother aerodynamic surfaces and shorter overhangs. eMO benefits from a low carbon footprint and a recyclability strategy. The eMO business case sets the MSRP at the disruptive price point of $ 20,000, before federal tax incentives or rebates.

Joomla crosses 1 million downloads per month: Asahi Technologies announces Custom Modules to help businesses gain competitive advantage

New York (PRWEB) June 16, 2012

It is quite common to see businesses in New York get confused over which platform to choose for their websites. Most experts agree that Joomla is the perfect platform to create web portals. Written entirely in PHP, Joomla is currently used by over a million websites all over the world. Some of the worlds popular e-Commerce CMS sites like Citibank, MTV and many more use Joomla. With amazing flexibility and cutting edge functions, Joomla is also a stable CMS to develop, operate and upgrade. Asahi Technologies, a New York based Web Development firm has launched custom modules specially developed for Joomla to help businesses across New York adapt to evolving web technologies.

Unlike many other frameworks, Joomlas multi-lingual support feature is very helpful when creating non-English websites. The best examples would be the customized Portuguese website of Porsche Brazil or the French website for Kelloggs. These were developed on Joomla platform without any hiccups. It remains as one of the striking features of Joomla in web development. Most e-Commerce experts and developers seem to echo this positive review on Joomla CMS.

One of the major reasons why websites migrate to Joomla is the adequate security measures in the Joomla architecture. Most of HTML based websites are often prone to security risks, since Joomla is written in PHP and MYSQL code it is easier to identify and eradicate malicious content intruding websites. Besides that users can also find security updates and patches in Joomla forums and community for current security issues said Vinod Subbaiah, CEO of Asahi Technologies, who was also an e-Commerce CMS developer during early days of his career.

“While Joomla gets used by over 1 million new businesses worldwide for their web portals, businesses would certainly need customized modules to gain competitive advantage. Our custom modules would serve the very purpose” adds Vinod.

Although there are plenty of custom tools like Prestashop, ZenCart and OpenCart to enhance business development on the web, Joomla remains to be the most reliable and efficient e-Commerce CMS and its popularity is growing from one level to another.

Over the past three decades, the company has grown into a premium quality electronics manufacturer, providing printed circuit board assemblies, harnesses, transformers and finished products to customers in the Industrial, Medical, Defense, and Automotive markets.

We are very excited about this next step for us, said Logue.

Our people and customers will now become part of an excellent organization with the resources and leadership to enhance the services we provide.

Quiroz will work with Doug Besse as part of Creations South Region.

First Light Technologies Lights up St.Pete Beach Florida with Solar LED Bollards

Victoria, BC (PRWEB) August 14, 2012

First Light Technologies Ltd., a leading designer of architectural-quality, integrated solar-powered LED lighting products for pedestrian applications, announces the successful installation of its new PLB Series Solar LED Bollards by the City of St. Pete Beach in Southern Florida.

First Lights bollard design fit our needs perfectly, said Renee Cooper, CIP Construction Manager at City of St. Pete Beach. The choice to use solar not only provided a visibly green statement but was also cost effective. Short term cost savings included being able to deduct the cost for conduit and wiring. The long term cost savings can be realized by not having any additional monthly electrical service fees. The bollards could be categorized as being a one-time capital cost with long-term savings benefits.

Cooper also felt the LED solar lighting provided by First Light Technologies has a future with the city, Installation was simple and the response has been fabulous. The community loves the look of the bollards and the ambience of the softly lit pathways. We will be looking at other areas to utilize the bollards and I foresee more of these being installed in the near future.

St. Pete Beach officials installed the PLB lights as part of a park improvement project at Horan Park, which included new sidewalks, sod and large solar pole lights. For areas remote from the existing electrical panel, budget constraints called for a solar stand-alone lighting solution that could be installed with minimal site disturbance, reducing cost by eliminating conduit, wiring and trenching. The city also required the light to be vandal resistant and able to withstand high winds and flying debris of a coastal location, to avoid ongoing maintenance and repair costs.

City officials chose our new PLB Series Solar LED Bollard for their robust design, ease of installation and cost savings, said Justin Taverna, First Light Technologies Managing Director and Co-founder. Feedback from our client following installation is excellent, confirming our confidence that we have launched a remarkable product into the $ 13 billion outdoor and architectural lighting market.

About the PLB Series Solar Powered Bollard

The PLB Series Solar LED Bollard is a stand-alone solar-powered light for low-level architectural and commercial pathway and landscape lighting. The PLB is cost-competitive with traditional hardwired bollards while offering several advantages:
