Mobility Ventures to Showcase MV-1 Vehicle at National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association Annual Conference

SOUTH BEND, Ind., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobility Ventures LLC, a subsidiary of AM General, will showcase its revolutionary MV-1 vehicle at the 23rd Annual National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) Conference, Reno, Nev., Feb. 5-7, 2014, Booth #441.

"We are pleased to show the MV-1 at NMEDA's 23rd Annual conference," said John Walsh, Mobility Ventures Vice President, Sales and Marketing.  "The NMEDA conference is a fantastic venue to network with the many professionals in our industry who are committed to improving the quality, safety and reliability of accessible transportation.  We look forward to working with NMEDA and its partners as Mobility Ventures continues to grow its MV-1 dealership network across the United States."

Mobility Ventures produces the MV-1 – the only American-built vehicle specifically designed from the ground up to meet or exceed the needs of wheelchair passengers and the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The MV-1 fills a significant void in consumer, government and livery fleet markets while providing unsurpassed accessibility, safety and comfort for its passengers.

Built at AM General's world-class, 675,000 square-foot Commercial Assembly Plant in Mishawaka, Ind., the MV-1 is universally designed, allowing people of all abilities equal access to a reliable, safe and inclusive transportation option.  The MV-1 meets all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) direct from the factory requiring no further modifications. Additionally, the MV-1 is more durable and cost effective to own and operate than a traditional retrofitted van or bus, as validated by its existing user community.

Walsh noted the MV-1 comes equipped with a deployable integrated power ramp for quick and easy passenger access along with a tested and approved, dealer installed, B&D transfer seat that fits in the spacious vehicle interior.  In the Spring of 2014, Mobility Ventures will launch its luxury vehicle model called the MV-1 LX which will offer customers a push button power remote door that deploys the roll-on/roll-off ramp to provide complete independence. The MV-1 is dedicated to safely transporting all passengers - with or without mobility challenges - making it the perfect solution for both consumers and commercial fleet services.

Mobility Ventures LLC is an industry innovator in purpose-built wheelchair accessible vehicles for public and private transportation providing automotive design, engineering, marketing, sales, and customer service support.  Mobility Ventures LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of AM General LLC.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...

To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
