There is an easy, inexpensive way to locate aircraft like flight 370 in the future. Install an automotive type air bag in the tail or other parts of the plane with an automotive type crash sensor. The air bag would detach from the craft and float. The air bag would be equipped with a GPS, pinger and Satellite phone that will send out all the information you need to go right to the crash site. The air bag will keep an added black box afloat for days. This would be cheap enough to fit on ALL planes and could save lives in many crashes. It would also save Millions of Tax Dollars in search ...

Summary

Since the environmental movement took hold of automobiles, designs have been refining to ever more lightweight, gas reducing models with some even providing new forms of fuel. The world has been introduced to electric automobiles as well as solar powered and hybrid fuel cell models. This designs proposes to use, drinking alcohol, and ethanol, in a reaction with sulfuric acid to dehydrate the alcohol into diethyl ether, H2O and sulfur. The sulfur will be further metabolized through a microbial sulfur fuel cell structure.

Explanation

Diethyl Ether has been used in ignitions and carburetors due to its fast startup and low ignition temperatures. Many consumers decide to look over electric and fuel cell vehicles because they start slow, run ...

Wings are becoming an integral part in the formula cars. With wings the downward force increases and so the cornering speed. But as the normal force due to aerodynamic downward force increases, the distance the car spins before it stops when full brakes are applied, (i.e, when the control on car is lost during cornering or drift) also increases. As the distance is more so impact energy while striking the barrier at some distance will be high and greater chance of casualty is there. Below is the mathematical explanation.

During turning, center force required to turn the car (Fc) = mv2/R
Frictional force(Fr)= nN
So, kinetic energy that the car possess(Ek)= (1/2)mv2
During skidding, energy absorbed= work done ...

The Alternator Recharger is a concept derived from the current working of the turbocharger.

The high amount of exhaust gases coming out of IC Engine are fed out of engine without any use.Today turbocharging is the method which uses these exhaust gases in some vehicles but not all.

We here present this concept of alternator Recharger in which a battery is charged using an alternators which runs from exhaust pressure.The convectional alternator uses engine power for their working,but in our case the alternator is removed from engine and fixed to a turbine which is fixed at exhaust outlet.

The battery recharged can be used for various electrical and electronic equipment in a vehicle. This technology can also be used ...

Amphi-BX is a hub steered, fork-less amphibious two-wheeler which can run both
on land and water. At present there is no two wheeler compatible like this. The main
advantage of this bike is its compatibility. The front and rear wheel of this vehicle will flip when it changes its terrain from land to water in order to give more balance and buoyancy in water.

The Bajaj PULSAR-150 engine with maximum power of 15.06 HP was selected for serving our purpose. We are using the single cylinder petrol engine of a Bajaj Pulsar-150 as the power source. On the land, the vehicle is steered using a cable and hub steering. In water, the steering handle alone can steer the vehicle, ...

THE ULTIMATE ADVANCED ACV (HOVERCRAFT)
This machine encompasses advanced technology in all aspects of Hovercraft Technology.

1...The Lift System utilizes a Skirt Finger Design which reduces surface contact and provides for surface following attributes which simultaneously reduces the power required to sustain the air cushion and lowers frictional resistance.
1.1...The fingers are integrated into the bag skirt in such a way that a peripheral jet flow maintains a higher surface clearance and at the same time helps contain the air cushion.

2...The Propulsion System uses advanced Cross Flow Blowers with an internal control mechanism. This maintains the Blower's internal Vortex location at the optimum operational position by way of sensors which adjusts the mechanism via motorized ...

The proposed IDRUS device is a Driver Assistance Device, a transceiver among vehicles to provide safest driving on the typical roadways, by identifying and alerting the driver about events such as sudden slow/brake, broken down vehicle, invisible spot alert, lane change alert, intersection alert, left/right turn assist.

Each vehicle has a built-in Intelligent Warning Device (IDRUS). IDRUS is a customized device which has GPS system, Sensor Unit, Processing Unit, Power supply unit. GPS system is used to identify the location of the vehicle, time and direction of the vehicle. GPS system is working with IEEE 802.11 b Wi-Fi protocol to makes the device cost effective. Sensor unit consists of ultrasonic sensor and proximity sensor to identify obstacles on the road. Processing ...

A safe, wireless device that reduces the risk of falling asleep. This wearable device may be inside a fabric cap attached to a glove. It measures heart rate and heart rate variability through a pulse oximeter. When the rate falls below a wearer-tailored threshold, an stimulation alerts the wearer. This prevents accidentally falling asleep, while driving, operating equipment or working in ...

One of the problems with vehicles is tire problem. If the vehicle has some problem then the user must remove the tire and fix the problem. And for a car user, it is difficult to remove tire and nuts especially for female users. The obstacles are time wasted and force needed. There is no tool that is easy to use to remove the nuts. The time to loosen or tighten car nuts is too long and wastes energy.

This tool has been designed to remove and tighten four nuts of the tire at a time with less effort. The tire nuts have been designed with 100mm pitch circle diameter (pcd) for this project. This tool can open and tighten four ...

Going over 60 mph you always have wind resistance. Now instead of streamlining you go the rout of funneling, now you have a funnel, kind of like driving a backwards van with the doors open. The faster you go, the more wind resistance you get. The funnel helps by channeling that unwanted air to a generator, then to electric motors/batteries, giving an added boost to speed and more speed is more air, all working ...
