A Streetcar Named Hyundai
A Streetcar Named Hyundai can be a world first initiative coming from Hyundai Motor UK that will involves driving, photographing along with filming over 2,000 miles of central London’s streets as defined by the globe-famous cabbie ‘Knowledge’. The drive will be undertaken from the Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell – a car that will emits nothing however water along with can be the globe’s first commercially-available hydrogen fuel cell car – along with the idea will create the first ever single mosaic image of up to 650,000 street pictures, along using a 0.5 second time lapse video of the whole journey. that will will mark Hyundai’s journey coming from 2005.
The 50 day journey will be undertaken in a zero emission hydrogen fuel cell car, mapped by the Ordnance Survey team responsible for the Olympic torch route along with completed by Hyundai employees. the idea launches on 29th September along with runs to 19th November 2015. More information can be found at http://ift.tt/1P7D1x5.
Hyundai can be creating entirely brand new software to capture the drive. that will software will control the camera shutter, based on the automobile’s speed, distance travelled along with angle of travel to capture the entire journey photographically. The camera will take pictures every 6-7 metres delivering an estimated 650,000 images – that will’s 8,000,000MB of data. The images will be woven into a world-first photo mosaic along using a time lapse video. A bespoke software engine will also sequence, align along with blend the images in real time creating a continuous image that will will be available online at the end of the challenge.
The final eight x two metre mosaic image will be exhibited to the public in London’s City Hall after the challenge has been completed.
Matthew Pencharz, Deputy Mayor for Environment along with Energy, said: “I am thrilled with Hyundai’s progress in bringing fuel cell vehicles to the streets of London along with I’m looking forward to seeing the results of their latest venture from the fantastic mosaic.
“As we look towards the introduction of the globe’s first Ultra Low Emission Zone; hydrogen vehicles can play a huge role in improving air quality along with reducing carbon emissions in our city, all of which supports our goal of protecting the health of Londoners, along with lengthening our lead as the greatest city on earth.”
