We suggest a new design of adaptive suspension systems of vehicles with better technical characteristics in comparison with existing designs. There have been developed the following main suspension components of vehicles: 1) a lockable adaptive shock absorber with a wide range of control performance, implementing "lockout" mode by means of blocking adaptive shock absorber, and 2) an elastic element with progressive non-linear characteristic and automatic optimization of localization of work areas. Advantages of our developments are: 1) when the vehicle is in a wide range of speeds in a so-called "comfort zone", we have managed to reduce significantly the ...
In this new concept CVT transmission of power is not by friction (as in conventional CVTs) in that case slip can occur, to prevent this slip high normal force is applied in existing CVTs; resulting in loss of transmission efficiency. In the new concept CVT transmission of power is by interlocking grooves and projections just as in synchromesh gears resulting in transmission efficiency comparable to synchromesh gears.
Salient feature of this concept is that the input and output pickups and rollers can be grooved to get transmission of power without any slip or frictional losses there by increasing transmission ...

The use of sensors has proved to be beneficiary in the design of adaptive and safety measures for automobiles. Traffic squares and crossovers are amongst the major accident prone areas; here we propose that in addition to visual display of traffic lights using a transmitter system the information about the signal lights can be gathered by oncoming vehicles and driver can be provided with a feedback (like voice alert) accordingly for safety purpose. Aiding to the safety measures the traffic crossovers can be provided with a speed sensor based smart speed breaker technology so as to minimize the ...

The clutch is one of the most important components used for gear shift and forward-reverse direction change in a transmission system. Conventional clutches in automatic transmissions for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, tractors, construction vehicles, etc. are multi-disk wet clutches composed of hydraulically operated piston and friction disk pack.
Basic function of the clutch is to transmit torque from the engine to shifting gears, but it must have enough capacity to absorb heat developed during clutch slip for engagement. In most cases, cooling oil is supplied to disk pack to take heat away from the disk pack and lower the ...

The implementation of visco-elastic material in order to enhance the safety of vehicle occupants against T-knock road accidents.Unlike the frontal collision, Side impact collisions are particularly dangerous as there is limited space between the occupants and the point of contact. The survey of accidents depicts that around 30-40% of the road accidents occurs due to T-Knock collisions.
Due to the limitations of technology and appropriate materials the safety of the occupant against the T-knock collision in the lower segment car is limited. Implementation of this material will result into absorption of the impact before reaching to ...

Biometrics can be used at many places like Industries, Offices, and Colleges or even at our home. This project is a fine combination of “Biometrics technology” and “Embedded system technology." Fingerprint sensor is the main part of this system. It makes use of Biometric sensor to detect a fingerprint. Fingerprint sensors use various types of techniques like ultrasonic method, optical method or thermal technique. In this project we have used optical fingerprint sensor, and made it possible to utilize “keyless entry” Main blocks of this project are Microcontroller, Fingerprint module, Buzzer, Relay, Keypad, LCD display and Actuators. We have ...

In this modern world the use of cars are increased due to its luxurious and comfort ride. For that a proper safety system is to be used. Currently air bags are used as a safety system in all cars. In that I have an innovative idea to replace the air bags in a cost effective manner.
Identification of problem
The problems facing in the air bags system are that the air bags takes only 1/20 of a seconds to deploy, its force can be enough to snap the neck of a passenger who has slid too far forward ...

Current Traction Control Systems or Electronic Stability Program systems have very much improved a car’s safety over the years, but can still not help if the car is entering a corner way too fast. This is even more of an issue where poor weather conditions are also present.
This system would be very similar to a traditional TCS/ESP system, but with additional data coming from the car’s GPS/SatNav system, and also further data from other commonly fitted sensors such as outside temperature sensors, tyre pressure sensors, active suspension sensors, and also rain sensors.
The system would first use the ...
Conventional air conditioning system using mechanical compressor consumes more power. Alternative for this is use of vapor absorption refrigeration system which uses the chemical compression instead of mechanical compression which requires less power .As generator and pump are the only components consuming power in such system, such systems are more efficient. Implementing such system in car will increase the efficiency of car. Only part consuming energy is generator where heat is absorbed by the solution.Here heat of the exhaust gases can be used to heat up the solution.
System works as follows weak solution in generator is heated ...
The objective of this idea is to provide an alternative mechanism of transportation , instead of an internal combustion engine, which is pollution free, a fluid which is renewable, efficient and at the same time not sacrificing the practicality of an I.C engine.
The air-hydro-hybrid system can be the solution, here the vehicle carries two sources of power, the front drive is powered by an air-hydro system, which constitutes of compressor, hydraulic motor, hydraulic pump, fluids etc..now this compressor sucks in air from the atmosphere, as soon as the electric motors starts. This air is compressed and ...
