Global trade is experiencing a faster period than ever before. One of the most significant factors in this rise in the pace of trade is the changing buying habits of consumers. The use of e-commerce is the primary one among these new habits. Have gotten used to speed in several fields of e-commerce, consumers expect the same from all other sectors.
Almost everyone has accepted that electric vehicles are the future of the automotive world. It is estimated that by 2030, electric vehicles' market share will reach 40% in developed markets, such as North America and Europe. Behind this upward trend lies developments in electric vehicle technologies and the fact that these vehicles are becoming more accessible to the average consumer day by day. However, these developments in electric vehicles alone are not enough. For such vehicles to reach the desired popularity, cities must be designed for them.
It is a bitter fact that summer gets hotter every year. And hot weather affects our cars as well as us. Although modern vehicles are designed to run smoothly under extreme weather conditions, hot and dry weather affects our vehicles' performance and safety. Let's take a closer look at these effects and what we can do against their consequences.
For the logistics sector, timing means everything. Even a truck arriving at its destination a few hours later than planned may lead to thousands of dollars of loss. The most important reason why vehicles on the road cannot be operated with excellent planning is human errors. With autonomous driving technologies and fleet management applications supporting them, it is possible to prevent these problems and maximize fleet efficiencies.
IoT, the "Internet of Things", has entered our lives in several areas. Now, our vacuum cleaner can clean the house as we are working, or we can use our mobile phones at work to check our home heater and make sure that our home welcomes us as warmly as we want. It is inevitable for the concept of IoT, which has become a significant part of almost every area of life, to be also used in the automotive industry, the largest branch of the production sector.
If your car has ever needed part replacement, then you have probably heard this question at the car service shop: Original or equivalent? Unless you have a special interest in cars, correctly answering this question is not that easy. This being the case, you may be leaving this choice to the experts at your car service shop. But, it is your car, and you are the one who will pay the bill for the wrong part selection. This is why we want to inform you of the differences between original and equivalent parts.
Motor oil is the most vital liquid in our vehicles. When there is no motor oil, even attempting to start an engine may result in a total engine breakdown. However, despite its critical importance, it is hard to tell that we are knowledgeable about motor oils. Let's clarify some misconceptions about motor oils.
What will the traffic in the cities of the future look like? At Mando, this is one of the questions we ask ourselves most frequently. This question allows us to explore new areas in mobility technology. Crowding cities worldwide making traffic a much bigger problem makes "smart" traffic a must, especially for big cities. When considering the concept of "smart traffic", it is required to focus on new ideas, think outside the box, moving away from the usual conventions. This mentality is the very reason for the emergence of personal mobility solutions whose numbers have been gradually increasing for the last few years. Thanks to these solutions, innovative solutions beyond cars are generated for personal mobility in cities. At the heart of these innovative solutions lies personal mobility platforms. All personal mobility solutions, both two-wheeler and four-wheeler, are built on these platforms.
There are several acronyms frequently used in the automotive world. Admittedly, most of us do not know what these acronyms refer to. But don't worry, Mando is by your side! LIDAR is the acronym for "Light Detection and Ranging". It is considered the eyes of autonomous vehicles. Measuring with light the distance to objects around the vehicle, LIDAR technology utilizes the laser to understand how far objects are. By calculating the time for the laser beam to return from the object, distances to objects around the vehicle can be detected. LIDAR sensor uses a 905 nm wave width laser beam. Thanks to this non-dispersive laser beam, the system's error margin reduces down to a few millimeters. LIDAR is able to rotate 360 degrees. Sending millions of laser beams to every direction in a second, LIDAR goes beyond perceiving the distances to the objects around and understands their shapes as well.
The widespread use of electronic components in everyday vehicles makes our journeys far safer and more comfortable. One of these technologies is electronically controlled shock absorber technology. Also called "active shock absorbers", an electronically controlled shock absorber is a smart shock absorber system that is able to change the shock absorber behavior within a few milliseconds, depending on the driving situation characteristics. The computer-controlled system evaluates the data from the environment and makes adjustments to the shock absorber. This way, driving safety and comfort are maximized.
Intersections are among the most sensitive spots in both inner-city and intercity traffic. Drivers and pedestrians need to be particularly careful at intersections. Although intersections are one of the focal points of any kind of traffic training, accidents there cannot be prevented. 25% of all traffic accidents take place at intersections, and thousands of people die in these accidents every year. Thanks to technology, this problem can be overcome.
As Mando, we do our best to make transportation less harmful to the environment. We produce technologies in some fields, including electric vehicle technologies and modern mobility solutions. On the other hand, we take steps to make our production processes environmentally friendly. However, no doubt that the steps we, as Mando, take are not sufficient. Therefore, we consider it our duty to share our perspective with all our business partners and inspire them. In the path of creating a greener future, we have some suggestions for auto service shop owners.
On a sultry hot summer day or on a winter day when it's freezing cold, a sudden failure of your car's thermal system may ruin your entire day. In such a case, there are some checks you can do on your own before heading towards the car service shop.
Most of us are emotionally attached to our vehicles. Beyond machines taking us from the point A to the B, our vehicles are our companions, even a member of our family. However, this emotional bond does not change the fact that our cars spend a significant part of their lifetime parked. Considering the investment we make for owning a vehicle, it does not sound reasonable to spend a high amount of money on a car that generally sits in the parking lot. Based on this view, auto subscription systems try to provide solutions. The popularization of these systems may turn us from being a car "owner" into a car "user." Sure, our cities will be affected by this change.
Most of us leave it to the mechanics to choose the engine oil. However, it is pretty hard to say that every mechanic pays the same attention when making that choice. Therefore, it is very important to be knowledgeable about engine oils. Remember, the engine oil directly affects the engine's lifetime and performance, and the use of the wrong engine oil creates severe problems. One of the basic information you need to have about engine oils is knowing how to read their labels. After reading this piece, you will more easily understand engine oil standards.
You may expect a car to be fast or comfortable. You may also want your car to look good. However, if your car is not safe enough, the other features are not important at all. The brake system is one of the most critical components for car safety. Automotive industry is endeavoring to create safer automobiles. Among these endeavors, the technologies that we, as Mando, developed draw attention worldwide. The Integrated Dynamic Brake (IDB) technology occupies an important place among these technologies.
There are several acronyms frequently used in the automotive world. Admittedly, most of us do not know what these acronyms refer to. But don't worry, Mando is by your side!
The traffic issue in big cities is getting worse, despite the developments in transportation technologies. The most important reason is the rapidly increasing urban population all around the world. However, with vehicles and traffic becoming smarter thanks to technology, the impacts of this problem may be reduced.
Shock absorbers directly affect not only the driving comfort but also the safety of driving. Therefore, shock absorbers in your vehicle should always be in excellent condition. However, they may need replacement due to road conditions and over time. Here are five signs warning you that your shock absorbers need to be replaced.
In modern vehicles, the battery is one of those components whose existence we realize when they fail or die. However, the battery in your car serves a vital function like starting the motor. You need to have a good battery unless you want to be stranded unexpectedly in an unexpected place.

"Safe cars " are often referred to as cars that ensure the safety of passengers inside the vehicle. But, for us, as Mando, the safety of pedestrians on the road is as important as the safety of those inside the car. This is why we have developed the AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking) technology. The AEB system consists of a camera, radar, sensor, and controls. This system allows the vehicle to automatically brake, in case a pedestrian is on its way ahead, during a normal drive. This way, the safety of pedestrians is no longer dependent on the drivers' reflexes. In the AEB system, the radar, camera, and sensors located on the front side of the vehicle constantly scan the road. The system is activated when there is an obstacle ahead of the car and the driver fails to timely react to it. Through controls, the engine power is cut off, and brakes are activated. This way, accidents taking place due to a sudden appearance of a pedestrian on the road or the driver's failure to notice the stopping car ahead are prevented. As Mando, we care about the safety of everyone in traffic, not just passengers. Therefore, in the safety technologies we develop, we do not just focus on those inside the vehicle but take steps for a traffic environment where everyone is safe.
Probably, you see only a few electric vehicles when you go out. This may make you think it will take at least 15-20 years for electric vehicles to become popular. But you are probably wrong! First of all, let us say that the automotive world is experiencing a major revolution. To become a chapter in the future's industrial history books, this period is the scene of the biggest developments in the automotive world, after the introduction of mass production by Henry Ford.
A shock absorber is a part of the suspension system. It takes under control the vibrations caused by the wheel's up-down movement. Its function is often thought to provide comfort, but it is also a vital part for driving safety as well. This is very easy to understand or feel. When you remove the shock absorber from the suspension system, the oscillations that occur cannot be dampened. Then, the car will oscillate longer, and the connection of the wheel with the ground will weaken and sometimes even break. It means that you will not be able to keep the vehicle on track. If this happens when you are taking a bend, your vehicle will skid, or it will stop at a longer distance when you brake.
One of the most surprising reflections of the COVID-19 pandemic in the field of digital marketing is the rapid rise in the Google searches containing the search pattern "near me." This may be due to the consumer's unwillingness to go to the other end of the city to get the products and services that they cannot buy online during the pandemic. However, this trend cannot be explained so superficially. Because the popularity of the" near me " search pattern has been growing steadily for the past five years. Therefore, if you own a car service shop, we can say that your new customers are near your shop. However, you need to act wisely for them to see you online.
Shock absorbers are one of the essential components that keep a vehicle in contact with the road. Absorbing the impacts caused by the unevenness on the road, shock absorbers allow for a much safer and more comfortable driving experience. However, like the other heavy vehicle parts, shock absorbers wear out and need replacement over time. Worn-out shock absorbers pose a significant threat to both the driver and load.
Social media has become an indispensable part of our lives for the last couple of years. Thanks to social media, we communicate with our loved ones, keep up to date with the agenda and follow the brands we like. It offers excellent opportunities for local businesses such as car service shops. To take advantage of these opportunities, you need to manage your business' social media accounts consciously.
The number of electric vehicles on the roads is gradually increasing. The biggest reason for this is that these vehicles' prices have decreased with the major automobile manufacturers' increasing interest in electric vehicles and that the required infrastructure is improving day by day. Another attractive aspect for people who use these vehicles is that their operating costs are much lower than those with internal combustion engines. It is estimated that by 2030 one in every ten vehicles in traffic will be electric in developed countries. This presents huge threats and opportunities for automobile service shops.
