There are 4 billion tires in the world today. Thermal energy is released mainly from the rolling resistance and is comparable with all the useful energy from power plants on the planet. Into the atmosphere tires release tons of dust and soot.
I present the design and theoretical substantiation of wheel properties.
The wheel’s characteristics maintain that its center of rotation mismatches with the center of support therefore the wheel adjusts its external forces depending on movement conditions. For a driven – pulling wheel the balance of the enclosed forces allows to minimize the demand of the external ...
This is just a simple sketch of a car (SUV segment) for easy transport of people and their necessities! The car I've designed is totally virtual design but, imagination has its no limits.
Made of aluminum alloy to reduce weight.
Mostly the parts are not curved which saves the manufacturing process.
The design of the car is compact to utilize all the available space.
The face of the car is kept high to keep safe the passengers.
The body width is more to keep the passengers comfortable for long distance.
The ground clearance is kept high for off-road ...

My project is called Anti-Explosion Tire System (AETS) . The AETS is a system for preventing tires from exploding while driving cars and hence saving the lives of passengers and drivers. AETS consists of 2 components. Fig 1 shows component 1 and fig 2 shows component 2. One outside tire like fig 1 and the other component is inside the tire valve like fig 2.
In fig 1 there's an ultrasonic unit built into the front tire bumper and if there's an obstacle in front of the car tire like big hump or small steel nuts the rays will return back ...
The tail rotor takes up 10 to 15% of the power, and complicates the mechanics. Some time ago I checked available designs and was surprised to find test flights in Germany in 1942 and a Dornier design well, a design in 1991/1992. Either compressed air pushes low octane gas through the rotor blades and at the end a spark plug ignites the fuel, driving the blades D (1942), Jet exhaust to the tip of the rotors, or a Zoche diesel driving an impeller and pushing the air into the rotor blades. Yet none of the projects became commercial. Now, ...

An alternator electricity voltage can reach up to 24 d.c. volts on trucks with maximum electric current of 60 amperes. If ten (10) units of these alternators are installed in a car, then they would provide an electric power up to 14.4 kilowatts or equivalent to at least 22 horsepower. This electric power is strong enough to power a d.c. motor to drive a car, and if coupled with a diesel or gasoline engine will make the system a good hybrid car. If more than ten (10) units of these alternators are installed in a car to power a ...
Amphibious Paddle Boat
This human powered amphibious paddle boat is a water-to-land vehicle that can be used on water as well as on all ground surfaces, including grass, boat slips and sandy beach fronts. Because it can effortlessly transition from land to water with nothing more than continuous pedal action, it can be a crucial support vehicle in water rescue situations. Unlike conventional boat, this boat has two parallel and eccentric wheels on both sides of the boat and two supporting small wheels on the underside of the front and rear ends of the boat to sustain the boat above ...
This is basic design proposal for a mass transportation commuter system for Atlanta (or similar geography) which is based on present technology to include the electric automobile. Presently, reverse lanes are being proposed along the I-75/I-575 corridor to solve the commuter congestion problem. The same route could be used to build two narrow lanes designed exclusively for commuter vehicles (including hybrids) with weight/space limits. Vehicle weight and space limitations allow smaller, lighter, lanes to be constructed using new concrete beam and slab manufacturing technology; the track parts are transported to the site and assembled onsite. Power is provided to ...

The AUTO Stop Lamp is a smart brake light that provides added protection for your vehicle, your precious cargo and you. The "AUTO" has two meanings: (1) It's a brake light for AUTOmobiles and (2) It AUTOmatically lights up when the vehicle slows down [patent pending].
• Reduces your chances of being rear-ended
• Provides earlier automatic indication of your vehicle slowing down
• Works even when you don’t apply the brakes in the case of the unexpected such as downshifting, vehicle malfunction, roadway obstacles, and collisions
• Easy for anyone to install – a direct fit replacement ...
The use of aerodynamic devices on semi-trailers, specifically devices located at the rear of the trailer, has been proven to reduce drag and improve fuel efficiency by up to 6%. The addition of such devices help to transition the air that sweeps across the trailer’s top and sides toward the end of the unit, and would otherwise begin to swirl around and create large, standing vortices that increase drag. Current devices require the driver to manually actuate the devices adding time and complexity which is why they have not been accepted in the marketplace. The Kaber-Tail is an aerodynamic ...

There has been significant reliance of people on public transport across world of late, Increased reliance would mean a lot to be offered by the transport authorities and the OE manufacturers in terms of the passenger comfort, it becomes challenge though as on one side Passenger comfort is to be given importance and on the other side maximizing the occupancy or other aids for the operator.
As mentioned above passenger comfort has been of utmost importance and this doesn’t confine to be resting on the seat or to travel in the bus, it also has a lot to do ...
