Nissan E-4orce Awd Will Make Future Dual-motor Nissan Evs Dual Threats

Nissan e-4ORCE AWD will make future dual-motor Nissan EVs dual threats

Compromise used to be the unfortunate truth in auto manufacturing. The hardware needed to build an enthusiast-pleasing machine wasn't necessarily compatible with producing a comfortable, safe vehicle. With the advent of modern electric vehicles, this situation is changing, and our recent drive of Nissan's e-4ORCE prototype all-wheel drive system shows how. The vehicle in question is a regular Nissan Leaf Plus that's been outfitted with two Leaf Plus motors (one in front and one in back) and Nissan's e-4ORCE all-wheel drive system. A variety of tests were laid out for us at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway during CES last week to let us try out Nissan's new dual-motor EV system. Turns out, e-4ORCE offers more than just increased traction. All the proof is in the driving. Our first test was a straight-line acceleration run. Two Leaf Plus motors combine for a system output of 304 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. To put it lightly, the e-4ORCE test car made the regular Leaf Plus feel as though it was hardly moving. The quick response from the go-pedal was just as impressive — Nissan claims its powertrain responds quicker than any other dual-motor EV system that it benchmarked. Next up, Nissan had us experience the benefit of rear motor regenerative braking. Instead of a swift nosedive when lifting off the accelerator pedal in the single front-motor Leaf Plus, the e-4ORCE keeps its nose steady and close to level with where we started from after lifting off the accelerator. It's able to accomplish this by using the rear motor instead of the front motor for regenerative braking, significantly reducing head-toss and squat. This will make a huge difference for folks who get carsick easily.

Canon's Next Eos R Camera Could Support Dual Memory Cards

Canon's Next EOS R Camera Could Support Dual Memory Cards

For amateur photographers, having a single memory card in your camera is usually good enough to get the job done. However, professionals who need to be constantly moving and shooting, such as at a wedding, a single memory card is definitely not enough. This is why cameras that support dual memory cards tend to be favored by the pros.

The good news for Canon photographers looking to hop onto the EOS R system is that according to a report from Canon Rumors, they have heard that for Canon’s next EOS R camera, it could actually come with a dual memory card slot. This is actually not the first time we’ve heard this and in the past, it has also been suggested that in-body image stabilization could also be a potential feature.

A recent report had even suggested that the company had displayed a prototype of this device to employees. A new report claims that this unnamed device will have two 9 inch displays with 4:3 aspect ratio and that it will be capable of running Android apps.

The report claims that this device, codenamed Centaurus, will be able to run Android apps as that will be supported by Microsoft’s new Windows Core OS (WCOS) operating system. WCOS is essentially the platform for a more lightweight version of Windows OS. It’s this operating system that’s known as Windows Lite internally which will be used for dual-screen devices and competitors for Chromebooks.

Epson To Launch Seeing, Sensing, Thinking, Working Autonomous Dual-arm Robot

Epson to Launch Seeing, Sensing, Thinking, Working Autonomous Dual-Arm Robot - FareastgizmosSeiko Epson has commercialized a “seeing, sensing, thinking, working” autonomous dual-arm robot that will expand the scope of automated production. The autonomous dual-arm robot WorkSense W-01 is developed for easy mobility so that it can be wheeled from place to place to perform assembly, transport, and other tasks. Seeing: – The robot is equipped with 4 head-unit cameras and 2 arm-mounted cameras that give the robot human-like vision, enabling it to accurately detect an object’s position and orientation in three-dimensional space. And even if the location of objects and obstacles changes, the robot is able to independently “see” and determine their position.
