Discovery of Automobile

Early automobiles were sometimes ‘horseless carriages’ powered by a gasoline or steam engine. Some of them were so noisy that cities often prohibited their use because they frightened the horses.

Many countries helped develop the automobile. The internal combustion engine, invented in Austria and France, was an early leader in automobile manufacturing. But the most rapid improvements in the automobile after 1900 occurred in the United States. As a large and developing country, the United States needed cars and trucks to provide transportation in places that were not served by trains.

Two brilliant ideas made mass production of the automobile possible. An American inventor named Eli Whitney thought of one of them, known as ‘parts standardization’. In an effort to speed up production at his gun factory, Whitney decided that every part of a gun could be machined, so that it was like all other parts of its kind.

Another American, Henry Ford, developed the idea of ​​the assembly line. Before Ford introduced the assembly line, each car was built by hand. Of course, such a process was very slow. As a result, automobiles were so expensive that only wealthy people could afford them. Ford proposed a system in which each worker would have only one side of the wheels. The other will put the wheels on the car. And yet, another would cast the bolts that were holding the car’s wheels in place. Each worker is required to learn only one or two routine tasks.

But the significant part of Ford’s idea was getting to the worker. An automobile frame resembling a steel skeleton was mounted on a moving platform. As the frame moved behind the workers, each worker could attach a part. When the car reached the end of the line, it was fully assembled. Oil, petrol and water were mixed and the car was ready to go. With the increase in production made possible by the assembly line, automobiles became very affordable and more and more people were able to afford them.

Today it can be said that the wheels drive America. The four rubber tires of the automobile propel America through work and play.

Even though it would be difficult for most Americans to imagine life without a car, some have begun to realize that the automobile is a mixed blessing. Traffic accidents are on the rise and big cities are plagued by traffic congestion. Worst of all, perhaps, is the air pollution caused by internal combustion engines. Each car engine burns hundreds of gallons of fuel each year and pumps hundreds of pounds of carbon monoxide and other gases into the air. These gases are the source of smog in big cities. Some of these gases are toxic and hazardous to health, especially for people with weak hearts or respiratory diseases.

One solution to the problem of air pollution is to make a car that does not pollute. That’s what many big automakers are trying to do. But making a neat car is easier said than done. So far, progress has been slow. Another solution is to eliminate car fumes altogether by getting rid of the internal combustion engine. Inventors are now working on turbine-powered cars as well as steam and electric cars. But most of us won’t be driving cars powered by batteries or boiling water for quite some time yet. Many automakers recognized that it would take years to develop a practical model powered by electricity or steam.

To make the world free of pollution—pollution comes not just from cars, but from modern industrial life—many believe that many of us need to make some fundamental changes to the way we live. For example, Americans may have to cut down on the number of privately owned cars and rely more heavily on public mass transit systems. Certainly, traffic congestion and air pollution can be reduced by the widespread use of new transit systems. But these changes sometimes come face to face with other more urgent problems. For example, if a factory closes because of non-compliance with government pollution standards, a large number of workers suddenly find themselves without a job. Questioning the quality of the air they breathe becomes less important than worrying about the next paycheck. Strict action should be taken if we have to reduce traffic accidents, traffic congestion and air pollution. While wheels have brought better and more convenient transportation, they have also brought new and unexpected problems. Progress, it turns out, has more than one face. 0 0 0.
