Abstract

Mobility has always played a crucial role in the course of human development. In almost every era, man has attempted to find the means to allow him to transport people over long distances at the highest possible speed. It took the development of reliable internal-combustion engines that were operated on liquid fuels to turn the vision of a self-propelling “automobile” into reality (combination of Greek: autos = self and Latin: mobilis = mobile).
