*Updated to 6th February, 2016* Most people's issue with electric vehicles is that of range anxiety because charge point infrastructure is not fully developed. This book explores and clarifies the current situation and provides a wealth of detail; from the background history of charge points, different vehicle charge connectors, charge point types, to a list of the main UK and Ireland charge point organisations. If you are thinking of buying an electric vehicle or already drive one, then this book is a must for you! Finally, if you work for any of the following companies/organisations or deal with electric vehicles or electric vehicle charge points, then you need to take a look at this book: Arcadis, Aecom, Atkins, Audi, BMW, Central Government, Citroen, Ford, Jacobs, KIA, Local Councils, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Mott MacDonald, Nissan, The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), Passenger Transport Authorities/Executives (PTA/PTE), Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Ricardo, Siemens, Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT), Smart, Tesla, Toyota, Vauxhall, Volkswagen and Volvo.
Whether establishing a solo practice, joining a group, or purchasing an existing practice, this comprehensive resource provides in-depth information on the fundamentals of strategic practice management and future planning for the medical practice. It tackles options, challenges, and trends related to business and practice management facing medical practices, and strengthening your position to thrive for many years to come. A valuable educational resource, Starting, Buying, and Owning the Medical Practice outlines the strategic options and alternatives available when determining the most appropriate models and methods for successful stability and growth. Organized in two sections, the first part provides both practical and operational functions of a practice's start-up, including such considerations as legal, financial, and personnel. Part two focuses on practice ownership and structure models that have emerged in the health care industry, including private ownership, physician alignment strategies, and the physician as an employee. Beneficial tools and guidelines help strengthen the physician's current position within the practice regardless of the health care venture they are in or planning for the future. This book provides business insight to questions asked and challenges faced by practices today, as well as how recent trends have impacted physician decision making for future needs. Features include: * Current health care trends -- aids in strengthening the physicians current position or determining the position they are most comfortable in when planning for a successful future * Basic planning guidelines -- assists physicians in understanding fundamentals and organizational alternatives to help make informed decisions to grow their practice's success * Charts and graphs -- provide visual applications that emphasize the principles presented * Easy-to-read format -- geared to a wide range of health care personnel in various envir
This book is based on the proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Vision in Vehicles. The aim of the conference series is to enable international researchers from different disciplines to meet and exchange ideas on the current state-of-the-art of all aspects related to vehicles and vehicle controllers. This is perceived as encompassing the internal and external design of a vehicle, the environment in which vehicles move, as well as the visual, perceptual and cognitive limitations of the vehicle controller. All types of vehicles (including underground mining vehicles, helicopters, trains and motorcycles) are considered, though the majority of papers deal with automobiles and their drivers.
The conference keynote address Automated Highways: A Vision of the Future, which was presented by John Bloomfield, set the tone for the meeting. The proceedings, as contained in this volume, begin in a similar vein with chapters considering Simulation Studies of Driver Performance, followed by a section on Visual Processing and Collision Avoidance. Cognitive issues are addressed in several chapters detailing recent work on Cognitive Aspects of Visual Information Processing.
The growing use of information technology is covered in two subsequent sections concerning firstly, the Visual Requirements of In-Vehicle Guidance Systems and secondly, Driver Support Systems. Environmental factors are discussed in a separate section, as is driver's own visual impairment. The final section concerns Arousal and Performance and discusses alcohol effects on driving ability.
Vision in Vehicles V, with contributions by experts from a diverse range of disciplines, including optometrists, psychologists, physiologists, human factors specialists and engineers, will undoubtedly stimulate the progression of research in this area.
