Transportation & Automotive - 2013
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. ...

To have cost effective manufacturing of an automotive heat exchanger and also to reduce the size to a compact one by combining both radiator and charge air cooler, a combination type. It will make the heat exchanger cost effective.
The design will reduce the investment in a number of tools in compared to individual development of the radiator and charge air cooler.
It will reduce the number of process toolings and also the number WIP and workstations.
The number of mountings, bracket provisions can be reduced as it becomes the single entity.
The investment in capital equipment for individual core ...
In college, I decided to get creative on a class project. We were asked to invent a technology for hybrid cars that had not been established. So, an electric engine powered by a solar battery pack could ultimately reduce wear and tear mileage and create a longer shelf life on vehicles. Correct? And, not to mention drastically decrease emissions. But, what if we also combined Wind Turbine that would create electricity to help generate energy while driving down the highway. As we all know, the Wind energy is the fastest growing source of electricity around the world. Contribute this ...

Bicycle racks are, in general, poorly designed and function in a sloppy and unaesthetic manner. They are time-consuming, annoying, and frustrating to use, and can damage the bicycle. As bicycle use grows for environmentally-sound transport, recreation, and exercise, a better bicycle securing and locking device is needed.
The “Bike Dock” is a simple, rugged, convenient, and secure bicycle holding and locking device. Unlike ordinary bike racks, it’s easy, fast, and satisfying to use, and can be more secure.
It captures the front wheel, supporting the bicycle. When locked, it prevents removal of the front wheel from the ...

Car Parking Booked System is a new way to book a parking area through your smartphone or by website. You have to register to make an ID before you make a reservation to get your parking spot. Just show your reservation ID to a parking officer and they will give you a ticket to enter the area. By Making A Reservation you already got free 1 hour parking and the spot to park. Which is you have to do payment online to do the reservation.
The main idea of this system is to provide a parking spot which is ...
Besides the further reduction of the harmful gaseous emissions (HC, CO and NOx) to meet stringent emission limits, the discussion on lowering the CO2 emissions is omnipresent. Various solid materials like calcium oxide, zeolite, hydrotalcite, and silicon carbide nanotubes readily adsorb carbon dioxide.
A new family of three way catalytic converter-technologies offers to tune the catalyst system to the engine performance and the back pressure requirement, which helps to reduce CO2 emissions. In addition, these technologies show improved performance in HC, CO, NOx, light-off, and in CO and NOx conversions under dynamic conditions. This again can ...

Each day millions of cars, motorcycles, trucks, aircraft and other forms of transportation emit brake dust and wear debris into the atmosphere from friction material as brakes are applied to slow and stop vehicles. I am commercializing a new green technology that has not been addressed previously. The Clean Brake Performance Module or CBPModule is the world’s first practical disc brake wear debris collection system which leads to improved braking performance and a cleaner global environment.
The general public is unaware that some constituents of wear debris (brake dust) are damaging to the environment, terminating in nearby bodies of ...

Relative motion between a metal conductor and magnetic field generates voltage. This is a well known fact. Also,a magnet moving in relative motion with a coil can induce a current in the coil.
Harnessing this voltage/current to recharge the battery or to power the electrical accessories or in case of a hybrid/electric vehicle can boost the distance traveled.
There are two places in a typical automobile where we have constant movement: first, rotation of tires/wheels and second, steering wheel movement by the driver.
The proposed design will have evenly distributed small size permanent magnets on the periphery ...
Currently one of the greatest problems in big cities, particularly in Mexico City, is mobility. The overuse of automobiles is creating traffic and pollution issues. Public transportation has significantly improved but it is still insufficient to fulfill the transportation demand. This prototype represents a clear advantage not only on adapting to new ways of transportation, but as a complement on government’s support on programs and infrastructure on the use of bicycles and other cleaner ways of transportation.
In order to make a bicycle a useful daily form of transportation, there are several requirements that need to be fulfilled to ...

Bicycles have capitalized an important place in the transportation industry since its inception. They are the cheapest, light weight and the most eco-friendly mode of transport till date using only manpower for the transit. But still the “Portability” and “Carry-Anywhere” characteristics of the bicycles has not been catered to the fullest extent. Cyclists still relies upon an SUV or a truck to carry their Bicycles for a trekking trip.
A bicycle which is so portable enough to be carried in your backpack would be a boon for all who dream of portable personnel transportation. “COLLAPSO-TRANSFORM “ checks all ...
