Nowadays, although you can still find them on some cars, the bumper sticker is no longer a much touted popular car accessory.

To the uninitiated, all vehicles that look “sporty” are typically lumped into a group we often refer to as “sports cars”. That’s almost like referring to chicken, duck and turkey as “chicken”. Not cool.Read More
RFID tags, once used only as a means for tracking cattle, are now being used all over the world to track all sorts of things--retail merchandise, vehicles, airline passengers, Alzheimer’s patients, even your pet dog.

Senses like sight, hearing, and even smell all have to be at their best while we're operating automobiles.Read More
Depending on when you were born, you might be too young to remember a time before navigation systems were popular.

Most people refer to navigation systems as 'GPS', but this term represents just one of the many systems out there.Read More
One of the most widely-used technologies in the world today is the modern automobile. All over Malaysia and the rest of the world, it's quite easy to agree that there are just so many cars. Sometimes way too many driving on the road at any given time. For the most part, this doesn't concern us since we only have one car to worry about: the one that we own. But imagine if you were the owner of your own business that uses a large number of cars or trucks every day; how would you keep track of each one?
We’re pretty sure that almost everyone driving on our Malaysian roads has experienced the “wonders” of the pothole. Sometimes, our roads become pockmarked with holes, both big and small, and these in turn can cause significant damage to your car and your tires.Read More

As the world’s largest car market, China’s car sales and output have fallen dramatically every month since July 2018. Inventories are piling up, especially for vehicles that don’t comply with emissions regulations, which will kick in sometime in August 2019 for a large part of the country.Read More
