the accord hybrid

The Honda Accord Hybrid is back to go on sale this spring. It's a 2017 model. Honda has not released the detailed pricing yet. The car model was off the market for a year.
It's similar to the 2015 model. However, it does sport an increase of 16 HP to 212. It has a combined mileage of 48 MPG. This helps the Accord Hybrid to become a leading midsize hybrid sedan.

The model went through a total re-engineering of the powertrain that includes new electric motors and a revised 2.0-liter Atkinson gasoline engine. Honda Sensing, the brand's name for its suite of autonomous and electronic safety system, is standard in the Accord Hybrid. That includes lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, and blind-spot warning. was the source for this post


supercomputing boosts team and driver

Announced March 31st, Honda and IBM will partner to equip Formula One (F1) racecars with data and technology sensors. The sensor will pull data to allow the racing team to amend and implement their strategies during a race.

Drivers will have access to this data as they are on the track.

Real-time racing decisions, based on this data, could very well revolutionize race driving. Pit stops can be made from information instead of intuition. Obviously, patience will tested during the transition process.

F1 is based on fuel conservation, strategy, and car mechanics.
 F1 is now more about car design. 

McLaren Honda, based in the UK, is implementing IBM's Watson IoT technology though its cars' hybrid engines. The research from this process will be used in Honda's production of consumer vehicles.

As the race goes on, this data is streamed to the cloud and shared with pit crews equipped with tablets. Information is also shared with researchers at Honda R&D for adjustments in temperature, pressure and power.
