There are few questions when you plan to go for a long drive.

1.What will you do when your tire gets punctured in a lonely road , dark night and heavy rain?

2. Do you know where to position the jack under the vehicle, and how much time and effort you need to lift the vehicle?

3. Will you be able to find whether the wheel is punctured or about to burst?

If you are working in your garage with your jack lifted car, are you sure that the jack won’t collapse and the vehicle won’t fall on you?

ALS answers all these questions...

An Automated Lift System (ALS) is defined as an arrangement used for lifting a vehicle ...

The security device for crane trucks is an idea that comes from the large number of accidents that occur by lifting loads exes in which crane trucks lost stability and roll over. These accidents often leave significant injury or death of workers, in addition to the economic losses for property damage and incalculable big problem with demands.

Although all cranes have security tables and clear rules for safe operation, there is a high probability of human error.

Our device is a lifesaver when the crane loses its stability and an accident is imminent. It is a device of easy adaptation to different cranes truck. The device is attached to the outriggers, is armed when the crane is operational 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 ...

The idea is to take the workings of a vehicle and use them to drive on water. All the scales in the drawing are just a guess. It seems to me though that instead of a propeller a track should be used to poke into the water to push the vehicle along. The steering then is connected to the tracks in this front wheel drive version portrayed. Also the front pontoons will steer.

If anybody uses this idea I would love to see the outcome and maybe enjoy some of the ...

Commonly people want to have a vehicle which will give good gas mileage as well as have a good design. But nowadays the trend has changed as people wants to have a compact,convertible design vehicle which also has to give a good mileage as equivalent as bike depending on load that is when only one person is there in vehicle with no passengers. And also people wants to have a vehicle with convertible design options like a single vehicle having options to be converted in to 4 wheeler, 3 wheeler, less no of engine cylinders running with less load, two wheel steering, single wheel steering, can be converted in to a big car with more space for a big family - I.e., like ...

The BiModal Glideway (BMG) project is a new incarnation of the 60 year old possibility of bimodal transportation. Bimodal transportation involves vehicles that can operate on conventional streets and highways and on separated guideways. In the former they are driver controlled; in the latter they are system controlled and travel without driver intervention.

Automobiles using BiModal technology enter onto a Glideway and automatically convert to all-electric, high speed vehicles, no longer requiring driver control. Riding on a single lane, grade separated Glideway, each vehicle is controlled by vehicle-Glideway interacting systems. The non-stop traffic would flow more swiftly and more safely than conventional traffic, and drivers would be freed up for other activities while on the Glideway. On existing roadways ...

There has been much research carried out in both academia and industry about pedestrian detection based on visual processing. The pedestrian or cyclist is exposed to a lot of danger on the street as reflected by statistics collected all over the world. To enhance the safety of the pedestrian or cyclist there have been many breakthroughs in computer vision research and the rapid growth of demand in its applications to actual vehicles. However, the reliability and the robustness of vision algorithm are still very much in doubt to improve the safety of pedestrian or cyclist for any environment. Most computer vision-based algorithms are complex in nature which causes the cost issue for the vehicle manufacturers or the end user, ...

Most vehicles currently have a practical Fuel Efficiency of about 15%. In other words, of the total heat energy contained in fuel, only about 15% of it is put to use in moving the vehicle. However, the engines powering these vehicles have about 34% Fuel Efficiency when held at their most efficient Revolutions-Per-Minute (RPM). All Constant Speed or Continuously Variable Transmissions (CST or CVT) are attempts to hold the engine at its most efficient RPM. Currently available CST/CVT technologies have limited power (and torque) capability, because they primarily depend on friction pulleys for the transfer of power.

Here is presented a CST/CVT incorporating a Variable Displacement Hydraulic Pump close coupled to a Hydraulic Motor. The Displacement of the ...

The project presents a offcenter device & combination of unique technology in order to intensify passenger safety while braking in a vehicle, proposing a brake line pressure controller to assess pressure in brake line and manipulate in accordance with demand of braking. Vehicle design embodies performance and safety so the brakes needs to be reliable and avoid any loose braking which makes it obligatory to maintain brake line at constant pressure. Reduced pressure or imprudent pressure are root to brake failiure, bleeding is one panacea.

Consequently BLPC is technology operated by ECU (electronic control unit) hence precised. Where pressure sensor is incharge of examing the pressure flow in brake line and submitting to ECU from where it sway transducer ...

I have made an electric rechargeable heater with a programmable 7 day timer that pre-warms the interior of your vehicle. The prototype unit works well and I think that little improvement is needed! Because I have assembled this from pre-existing products I am a little afraid of giving up to much Info, because my work could be easily copied. The working and tested unit had a cost of a little less then $300.00 US dollars. I know that I could bring the cost down considerably. The unit brings the car interior up to a comfortable temp. without having to start the engine. So it's GREEN! Also the way I have designed it, with its own rechargeable power source that ...
