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 with boarding and alighting the bus. For passenger this would mean the ease with which he negotiates the maneuver and ...

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 ...

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 builders can be combined into one with semiautomatic operations.

The final module assembly station is eliminated by doing so.

This ...

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 new successor to the Automotive industry and you'll have positive results without question. The same technology used in a larger ...

AVARII is a medical device in the form of a bracelet that provides automatic communication during an emergency.

The bracelet is composed of a pulse sensor that monitors the user's pulse rate which gives an alert when the pulse is low, null or too high and automatically connects you to an emergency center. The emergency call is made via a mobile communication service which uses a SIM card with GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication)and a powerful antenna to determine the exact location of the user even if he is unconscious or dead.

Although it provides an automatic signal, it can be activated at any time, in cases of a car accident, robbery, kidnapping, accidental falls, or any other ...

The Avhiral is a security system consisting of an antivirus, firewall, and has a small server can also apply a control system license against piracy. The device has a processor that just manages cryptographic keys. Fully customizable by five-inch touch screen. The unit can be powered by USB connectors for mains or battery which realize the fully autonomous. It has two Ethernet ports, wifi module, a sd card reader, can be with eight gigabytes of memory. The apparatus consists of multiple processors including an ...

Wind power seems benign and safe, but there are several problems: bird/bat strikes, noise, vibration, large normal force at the tower top from blade lift, slow adaptation to wind direction changes (and correspondingly large blade stresses), etc. that are all solved here. My goal is to allow distributed wind power capture that is inherently safe and works from lighter winds than conventional turbines require, located close to each load to eliminate power distribution losses. This also provides improved energy security because without need for long power distribution lines the threat of blackout in storms from broken power-lines is eliminated. And, of course, this is completely carbon-free in operation.

The key is to align the lift force from all rotor ...

Who do you know that would like a safer, faster, more fuel efficient airliner that could carry more at lower costs, take off at less than 100 mph yet travel near Mach 1 with minimal drag penalty? This design has already been proven in NASA, hypersonic testing. The time to support this giant leap forward in design is now.

This is the next logical step in aviation design. Its natural stability and proven history make it most desirable for minimal flight testing and overall cost reduction. The design lends itself to adaptability. With the use of advanced composites, this structure can be pressurized for safe, human transport now.

With the latest in efficient design and technology, this plane is ...

According to national statistics, an average of 38 children are killed every year in the United States from hyperthermia while trapped in a car. More than 15 deaths have been reported in 2013 alone. No one likes to admit that they might be careless enough to forget their child, even momentarily, but the parents of these unfortunate children come from all walks of life. The modern parent juggles a busy schedule including work, errands, daycare, etc. With an endless to-do list and inevitably too little sleep, it is all too easy to get distracted or go on auto-pilot. It could happen to anyone. Unfortunately, loss of life can occur in as little as ten minutes, even when outside temperatures ...

Babylon Effects(BE!) is a specialist in rooftop farming technologies with a focus on ready-to-use farming packages and consultancy services to its customers. The rooftop farming technology specially developed by BE! will enable a range of crops to be grown in poly-tunnel greenhouses connected to a closed-loop water and energy management system. The initial target is to provide sustainable and profitable rooftop farming solutions to building owners. During the whole contract process, BE! will assist and advise its customers for the monthly operations, whilst growing the market for its farming packages.

1. Problem
* Under-used space in urban environments
* Growing pressure on land as urban areas take over farming space
* Inefficient system where food is grown far from ...
