  1. From Thirdwigg.com For Immediate Release, May 22, 2045 The 2045 Mercedes Benz Athane prioritizes safety, sustainability, and versatility. The 2045 Athane is the most advanced and cost effective truck in our 150 years of truck building experience. As cities become denser and multiple transportation modes are becoming more prevalent, road safety for all road users must be paramount. The Athane’s ThemoCommLink (TCL), located on the right front and right rear bumpers, allow motorized vehicles to communicate to one another. The TCL also detects the heat signature of pedestrians and cyclists. Identification and communication with other users, keeps all road users safer. The driver is seated in the center and forward in the cab to increase vision. Retention of a human driver allows for relational interaction at the job site, and helps the technology make good decisions about varying road situations. The TCL Technology assists the driver so fewer errors are made. The front bumper shaping and full length wheel guards lowers the severity of crashes with non-motorized users should they occur. The Athane uses eight steerable wheels to improve weight distribution and increase city maneuverability. While many manufactures are switching to floatation and hover type drivetrains, this setup allows for unmatched braking control, and removes disruptive air currents to those walking and cycling close to the moving truck. The Athane’s Methane-Hybrid driveline continues Mercedes Benz’s prioritization of decreasing fossil fuel use. The Athane uses electric propulsion using energy stored in the batteries under the cab and bed. Battery charging is done by braking and by a small methane powered combustion engine behind the cab. Additionally, the Athane can be ordered with an induction charger under the cab to work with newly developed induction charging roadways being installed in many municipalities. Methane gas is clean burning, and a significant byproduct of the waste and recycling process currently in place with Octan Rubbish. A partnership with Octan Energy and Mercedes Benz has developed a standard way to reap, store, transport, and fuel the Athane’s regeneration engine using methane gas. Removable methane tanks are house behind the rear wheels, and in smaller tanks in the cab. Today’s logistics companies are searching for ways to improve versatility and lower cost. The Athane’s SmartStack systems allows for interchangeable bodies, cargos, and applications all with one common truck. The SmartStack system makes it easy to change the load in just minutes. The connection fits the international container standard. Many body work designers are applying this standard as well. In one afternoon, you can ship a container, deliver a load of concrete, and pull a fifth-wheel with the standard hitch. Welcome to the future. The 2045 Mercedes Benz Athane keeps all road users safer, decreases our harm on the planet, and supports all work tasks needed. Features: · 8 wheel steering · Sleeping bed · Aerodynamic cabin · In-cab Storage System · ThemoCommLink, front and rear · SmartStack System · Fifth-Wheel Hitch · Wheel Guards · Large/Low Bumper · Methane Tanks · Hybrid Motor · Induction Charger · Batteries · Passenger Jump Seat · Front and Rear Lighting · Video Mirrors on Each Side of the Steering Wheel · Visibility Focused Driver Placement Press Release Gallery Here.
  2. Concrete truck Mk II. After the first attempt where things were there were scaling issues I had another crack at it today. Ideas are to have 8 wheels so twin steer. Both drive axles and simple sturdy construction. The functions are: L motor for drive. Servo motor for steering. L motor for the mixing bowl. M motor for the chute. Manual functions will be opening doors, cab tilt and chute swing from side to side.
  3. Saw this today on DRB: http://www.darkroast...nstruction.html Warning: If you like viewing pix and vids of crazy random stuff, DRB is an extremely addicting site!
