In these briefs you will find many different advancements in the world 

of automobiles as well as the way they become.

1908-1930

  • In 1908 we were introduced to the Model T, which was designed and produced by Ford Motors. The goal of Henry Ford was to make an affordable as well as durable and could be mass-produced on a production line.

  • The vehicle was first tested by Ford himself and is known for its capabilities such as climbing the stairs of the Tennessee Capital and reaching the top of Piles Peak.
     

  • This advancement in operational production was the technologies first step in user interface within automobiles as it became the first mass-produced car that allowed a more urban way of life.

  • In 1911, a man by the name of Charles Kettering filed for a patent for the new ideation of an electric starting motor for the automobile.

  • The electric starter was not safe when it originally was developed by Kettering leading to many injuries as serious as an injury leading to death.
     

  • The Chief of Cadillac put together a team to develop a much more reliant and safe mechanism for an electric start which was launched in 1912 Cadillacs as a self-starter.
