The world would soon be changed forever and ever. First off, even though this topic was chosen for an invention that was created during the 20th century, the first planes were developed long before this. Although, the first self manned, flight sustainable plane was created in 1903 by Wilbur and Orville Wright. They started off by creating many different sizes and shapes for their wings. Unfortunately, 90% of their designs resulted in nothing but failure.
Ford became a first carmaker that installed a conveyor at its factory. This equipment made it the world’s first company that started mass car production. Chevrolet-490 was equipped with electric lights and starter; it was a rare decision even for more expensive models. Both companies worked on the improvement of the safety and other systems of their cars. But Ford demonstrated more conservative approach in some cases (at least, during Henry Ford’s ruling).
From there he just took off as he successfully created that and wanted to add upon it to create something that could be steered and was easier to drive. “The Model T, also known as the “Tin Lizzie,” changed the way Americans live, work and travel. Henry Ford’s revolutionary advancements in assembly-line automobile manufacturing made the Model T the first car to be affordable for a majority of Americans” (History.com). The reason why Henry Ford was so successful with the Model T was because it was affordable. Before, not many Americans had the money to own a car.
Automobiles allowed people to travel long distances. This made it possible for workers to live outside of the city and commute to work. This caused the rural population to increase leading to the urban sprawl. Owning cars gave families the opportunity to go on vacation to distant places and rural families could travel to the city for shopping and entertainment. The 1920’s brought an increase of convenience for the middle class.
Before Ford created a cheaper, more affordable car for the American people, Charles Edgar Duryea had created a car only affordable for the wealthy, not many Americans were as fortunate to be able to buy a car and it was considered a luxury to have. When Ford created the Model T, it changed the way cars were priced. The American people now had more options of cars to choose from so companies in the automobile business had to lower their prices to compete. As in this quote (Jim Luke, par. 7) “ With his invention of the assembly line, it allowed other industries to adopt this idea and decrease their production costs.
A Model-A of Henry Ford by 1900’s In the 1920s the automobile/motorcar, came out to represent a great part of the American dream, offering independence and adventure to its owners. During that period, the price of cars fell dramatically, so that the people could afford them. That was a smart tactic for many car industries, because due to the previous high prices, only the rich were able to afford one. They could be sold to a mass market because they could be made more cheaply, using assembly line methods. The assembly line of Henry Ford had brought down approximately the average of a car from $850 in 1908 to $250 in 1925.
In the Next 20 years the only vehicle that will be on the road will be self driving . As more people become aware of and use the new technology of self driving vehicle, one day that will be the only type of vehicle on the road. People will realize how much time it saved them and their families. The idea of of a Self Driving Vehicle started as early as 1950’s by Walt Disney, in his movie Magic Highway USA showed cars driving by themselves on the roads. In 1962 the first self driving car was invented by Robert Fenton, this vehicle was not intended for passengers as the whole inside of the vehicle was full of electronic equipment.
Introduction Electric Cars were introduced more than a century ago. The significant growth and development in the world has led to an increase in transportation, vehicles were in great demand which led to an increase in pollution and other environmental problems. It was in the 1970’s that saw an urgent need for alternative fuelled vehicles so as to reduce the problems of exhaust emission from vehicle’s internal engines. Even though electric cars being introduced more than a century ago, the popularity of the car is increasing today due to the many reasons as before. Be it a hybrid car, plug-in hybrid or all electric, the demand for the autonomous vehicle will continue to rise.
Automobiles in the1920s Can you imagine a life without a car to get you from place to place? Today we rely so heavily on automobiles that most people use them several times a day. The automobile was not invented in the 1920s but it began to change and start to change the way all Americans lived. The new ideas of Henry Ford and mass production with the assembly line created the opportunity to make lots of automobiles and also to make them affordable for almost everyone. The automobile industry opened the door for lots of other business opportunities like service stations and motels.
