One embodiment of a modular base assembly comprises a frame and leveler assemblies used to support a vehicle model. The frame has a frame segment with several parts including a cross-support and a side-support having a surface defining a plurality of holes where model-making components can be attached and unattached thereto. Leveler assemblies level the base assembly, and each can include a wheel hub locator that adjustably fixes a hub along a longitudinal horizontal, a vertical, and a horizontal direction. Another embodiment comprises a motorized vehicle undercarriage that carries a frame. The frame has a platform with a top surface defining a plurality of holes in the form of a matrix. Model-making components can be attached and unattached thereto.

I see parents every day chasing their kids around the yard or on the sidewalk trying to get them to control their electric ride-along cars. Children don't seem to get the concept of "stop" while driving their electric cars, so mom or dad have to run after them in a panic to catch the car before it gets driven into the bushes, the back of a real car or into the road.

The Auto Stopper was created to let parents take control of those cars from a distance. The Auto Stopper is a small box that is plugged in between the cars battery and power wire, a small remote control is used by the parents to kill the power ...

Automating power transmission, basing on the USB theory and the desk phone headset theory. This whole setup looks at improving power transmission with easy to manage power usage by clients. Clients' meters are going to be managed by a centralized software systems at substations, connections to clients' meters are going to loop from TCj's(Terminal connection Joints) which looks like a USB Hub. Client's meter will have an LCD screen to enable the client takes current readings and previous, this meter will have a small printer section to print a receipt at every end of the month. It will also have an embedded fire detector and alarm to stop any fire outbreak. This meter will have a customer support redial ...

A contact-type ultrasonic inspection system, mounted on a carriage that is pulled behind any hi-railer vehicle on a railroad track. This is a skid type inspection fixture that slides onto the top face of the joint bars (one each side of the rail) and uses ultrasonic energy to inspect the back (hidden side) of the joint bar for cracks. These cracks develop at the top of the joint bar where it contacts the rail, just under the rail head.

Cracks developing on the inside surface of the joint bar cannot be seen by visual inspection until they propogate to the outside surface, in which case it may be too late, causing an open joint wth the potential of a ...

In the present world the cost of production of powered wheelchairs is so high that people never afford to buy those wheelchairs especially in the under developed countries. So, we have come up with this economical powered multipurpose wheel chair named as Automated Wheelchair. The basic idea of this automated wheelchair is to serve people with multiple disabilities i.e. the people who are both visually challenged and also physically challenged. They can use this wheelchair to navigate from one place to other automatically without any difficulty. The navigation of the wheelchair is taken care off by the automation program embedded in it.

Technology has always been progressive. The Automated Wheelchair is a significant development in the design of autonomous ...

Automatic Sheet Sorter for separating zero defect sheets from a batch of printed bio-sensor base arrays.

Sensor arrays are produced on sheets that later on make up multiple of finished biomedical sensors. During the manufacturing process of these arrays various in process tests and measurements are performed. This example focuses on the manufacture and inspection of the carbon layer of a blood glucose sensor. Variations in the print process of this layer result in sheets where some of the sensors are outside their acceptable tolerance range but do not deem the entire array defective. However these sensors need to be identified and marked for post processing of the arrays into finished product and future editing out when the sensors ...

The system presented here is destined for the transmission of information of automatic form, route repeater or satellite, (depending on the needs of the client), in case of:
• Collision
• Overturn
• Fire
• Theft of the vehicle
As complement to the previous thing, it has also other functions of manual type since like the request of help, management of fleets or other parameters (pressure, temperature of the load etc.).

The major advantages of the equipment it would be obtained by the transport of dangerous goods, but its qualities and the potential adjustment to other sectors, make that any kind of vehicle could benefited from a way of communication and passive safety that today doesn’t exist ...

The patent pending Automodal system automates the loading and unloading of semi truck trailers on train cars. Now, time sensitive freight can be transported via railroads removing the diesel guzzling vehicles off our highways.

It works like this: A truck driver positions a semi trailer onto an Adaptor Plate (similar to a large automation pallet), unhitches the trailer, anchors it to the Adaptor Plate, and drives away. The Adaptor Plate is automatically staged, via conveyors, along side of a set of train tracks. A train yard can be equipped with as many of these conveyor zones as needed. A special Automodal train pulling Automodal cars stops alongside the conveyors. All Adaptor Plates on the train cars are simultaneously transferred ...

Automation is not yet there in the transportation sector.

Our aim is to bring Full Automation here.
By using RuBee Protocol we are going to implement this.
RuBee is a Transceiver, its cost is Rs:1500/- (cheap to buy).
This Rubee Tag will have a Vehicle Identification Number and this was kept in the vehicle chase, so no one han access to it physically (full security). It will send the ID number continuously. It works with a small lithium battery with a lifetime of ten years (continuous operation and longer operating hours).

It can also be used to store details like..
Licence Number
Vehicle Owner Name
Owner's Contact
Validity of Vehicle
Insurance Validity
and those details in Vehicle Book ...

The huge amount of smoke the Internal Combustion Engine of an automobile (truck/car/bus) bellows, versus the clean ride we all enjoy on a bicycle, made me think of a cleaner source of energy to run the automobile which is not dependent on any sort of crude, not even on the Renewable Energy sources of the Sun, Hydro, or Wind power; is far easier and economical to build than the fuel cell, can be made available 24 X 7 almost without any cost.

It is actually the simple principle of a Dynamo which worked fine on my bicycle, magnified 100 times. My bicycle had a dynamo attached to the rear wheel which when turned along the wheel’s rim as the bike ...
