A personal transportation system designed to move 2 people locally with power stored in batteries, produced from pedal generators and on-board solar panels. The ElectriLite weighs 300 pounds and is designed to be produced in communities and facilitated by internet connection where advances in design and component purchases can be coordinated. Target price is ~$3000

ElectriLite Design Highlights are:
~ Vehicle control and functions are all managed by a 32 bit microcontroller and a Netbook style personal computer via USB2 and runs on open source software.
~ Vehicle is powered by 2 PMBLDC front wheel hub motors of 8 hp peak/90% efficiency using NdFeB magnets in a computer optimized design of 90%+ efficiency,
~ Front end is equipped ...

Turn signal related issues are included in virtually all lists of driver’s pet peeves. Although every car and truck is built with turn signals and every driver is obliged by law to use them, many drivers neglect to use them. Also, they are designed such that they may be stuck-on for miles and miles if the mechanism fails to trip them off. Furthermore, they may trip off before the turn is even made if the steering wheel is moved just right while sitting at a light.
Any given driver has a right to a fundamental expectation from all surrounding vehicles on the roadways: turn signals should be “on” to indicate an intention to make a turn and turn ...

Trenitalia did some research efforts to develop Ethernet based networks suited for the on board train harsh environment and identified the main technical challenges to deal with such a sophisticated mobile local area network:
• fault tolerant local area network
• topology constraints due to train architecture
• data cabling requirements due to very strict fire-flames rules
• data connector housing requirements for on-board in-vehicle and between-vehicles links
• data connector requirements for on-board railway operations (mechanical vibrations and wide temperature range)
• strict latency and jitter application level response time and synchronization issues

After some prototype testing, we were able to identify the train network technical requirements: a fully switched Ethernet network with standard IEEE 802.1Q (Vlan and ...

According to the present invention (INDIAN PATENT FILED: 2227/DEL/2006) we use energy, conveniently in the form of laser or other energy rays to increase the thermal energy or to decrease the density of a common medium. The energy could be configured so that the movement of a moving object through that medium is either eased or enhanced or
both.

Energy can be used in many forms such as lasers, energy radiation, and mechanical energy and in some cases in the form of fields. Energy is configured so that the movement of a moving object through a medium is either eased or enhanced or both. The movement could be eased due to the decrease in the density or decrease in ...

A fundamentally new system of transportation, originally conceived in 2007, is described herein.

This system, called "feather rail," is different from cars, trains, or bicycles, but is most similar to a combination of the latter two. The most essential component is the infrastructure: we specify a steel rail, akin to a small I-beam, attached to a grade-separated right-of-way. Each lane consists of a single rail, thus making it a true monorail system. The maximum load is 500 lbs per 10 feet of live load, implying a very light civil design resembling that for pedestrian traffic. Fine breaks in the rail allow vehicles to overtake and merge to different paths, preserving the freedom of navigation.

There are no limits on ...

An aircraft cockpit canopy/windshield embedded/inlaid with a precision milled aerodynamically perforated fine (thin-slender) flowing smooth titanium or other strong metal composition mesh, jet engine intake port with a precision milled aerodynamically perforated spiraling down-sloping furrowing fine (thin-slender) flowing smooth titanium/other strong metal composition mesh, and embedded impact-pressure sensor combination for identifying extent or degree of damage from a bird strike or any hazardous object impact, combating jet engine failure in flight, and whisking bird strike residue carcass/any large locusts or particles away from jet engines and canopy/windshield; accordingly, anti-bird strike sensor mesh enables air passenger transport in jet aircrafts for destination achievement. Novel renderings envelop military and commercial marketing and global commercialization strategies for business and economic development for ...

This is my concept of a flying saucer's propulsion system. This is a shaftless turbine fan. The fan hovers sandwiched at the axis extreme between an opposing magnetic system, which provides frictionless bearing support. The fan then is powered by the same motor launching system used in electronic rail guns. In a typical fan, the shaft and the fan blade area nearest the axis provides little or no usage of usable power at all, except to add additional weight and drag. Much of the pulling and pushing power on any fan system is provided by the area of the fan farthest away from the central rotating axis. With this design, the center area is free space to be occupied ...

So far, it has been impossible to get emissions of gasoline/diesel engines down do 0%. With the Fully Internal Combustion System though, it can do just that. But first, an introduction to conventional superchargers that are used in high performance cars: A supercharger is used when an engine needs more power. The engine's crankshaft turns a belt that drives the supercharger, compressing air and feeding it into the engine's intake. This gives more power since there is compressed air inside the piston chamber now.

How FICS works is that it uses a modified SuperCharger so that it compresses exhaust air instead of intake air. It is still the same concept but this time, it uses the engine's power to ...

Gravito-Magnetic-Lumina-Fusion Engine with Time Stop Machine.

It requires four Nano-lasers (cooled by liquid nitrogen as they strike the superconductor) arrays at 90 degrees around the sphere to focus on atoms to rotate a spherical superconductor at the speed of light. The sphere is made of a liquid superconductor such as mercury. It is held in place by an electrostatic barring on each side, the laser goes through the barring and strikes the metal and rotates it at 90 degrees and 60 degrees for rotation. It is followed by an inner spherical chamber of copper or gold for 4-space distortion protection for the space displacement. Or an alternative would be a Higgs chamber for controlling magnetic dipoles in this section, ...

In recent decades there has been a population shift to suburban neighborhoods and rural areas where public transportation infrastructure can be expensive and/or unpractical. At the same time, increasing energy costs and growing concern about pollution has led to a need for improved transportation solutions. A low investment transportation system is needed that can profitably use existing public and private transportation infrastructure to its maximum potential and provide the framework and data collection needed to promote more innovative, efficient and effective investment in future transportation infrastructure.

The proposed system is a cloud based service that works with existing commercial hardware on the customer end, primarily GPS and Internet enabled cell phones or similar dedicated hardware. GPS navigation and communication ...
