Automotive/Transportation - 2015
Automotive Manufacturers are missing an opportunity to mass produce a small, simple, affordable Electric Vehicle (EV) following the examples of the 'Model-T' or 'Volkswagen.' This type of vehicle could be designed around the simple, "Plug-in, Series-Hybrid EV" which, like the RR locomotive, would drive the vehicles wheels with one, or more, electric motor(s) using electricity from a battery or a generator powered by a small Internal Combustion Engine (ICE).
The "series-hybrid EV" has been criticized by unknowing people as being inefficient. Some have said it is not more efficient than an ICE vehicle. They also argue the more complex ...

By the time you finish reading this sentence, a man has died even before reaching the hospital. Trivialities such as traffic, unfavorable road conditions, irresponsible driving should not be allowed to decide the fate of a man. Can life be left to chance? When a hiker, pilgrim or a traveller gets stuck in a desolate region as a consequence of natural calamities, what happens?Can his fate be left to the hands of nature? The primary purpose of this design is to ensure that such teething troubles are pushed into oblivion. A smarter transportation mode, capable of both land and ...

In this work, an endeavor has been presented to modify the conventional rear disc braking system in a motorcycle. In two wheeler, when a pillion load is added, the normal static reaction increases on the rear wheel and during braking operation, the normal dynamic reaction starts decreasing on rear wheel. Furthermore, the normal dynamic reaction on rear wheel is more for laden condition than unladen condition during braking operation that leads to more braking force required between the tire and road surface for laden condition when the magnitude of required braking force is compared with unladen condition. ...
We see a lot of accidents which occur due to irregular steering motion. Once a driver tries to enter a main highway from a by lane his vehicle would be in a angular motion and he will not be able to the see the vehicles behind him. In this project we have introduced a mechanism in which we connect the steering to the side view mirror, so when the steering wheel is moved the side mirror also tilts according to left or right.
There are 3 methods to connect the steering wheel to the side view mirror. They are ...

In today's fast moving world, Everybody loves to speed up.
A number of automobile manufacturing companies around the globe are launching high speed cars keeping in concern the efficiency of cars regarding fuel consumption and Engine's life but on the other hand we know very well that 'speed thrills but it kills'.
These fast moving machines are safe on testing tracks but when it comes to Highways and Freeways full of traffic; These angels becomes demons due to unconscious love of speed which results in disastrous accidents.
Keeping in mind that 'science is a good servant but a ...

Improving automotive safety is one of the major aspects in today’s automotive industry. “Anti-Sinking Airbag System” deals with the automotive safety in passenger vehicles i.e.
a)Avoids the vehicle sinking in a body of water.
b)Protection during the fall of the vehicle from higher altitudes
c)Reduces damage from a High Impact Collision
The inflation of an airbag is a chemical reaction i.e. igniting sodium azide powder.When the vehicle experiences an impact the sensor gets actuated and an electric current is passed to the canister (metal container with sodium azide + igniter compound). The current heats the igniter compound and ...

This system is designed to protect and ensure the survival of the driver and the passengers in any car that has an accident either with for without fire.
How it Works?
Let's say that there is a car which have this system had an accident but without fire. Here this system will let all the doors to be opened and the all the windows to be opened to the maximum position , at the same time a programmed phone will call the emergency no. which is the 911 with auto pre-recorded message with GPS locator that "There is an ...

As the title itself conveys, the product is a type of kit which resists the puncture state of a vehicle tyre. Normally we see solution currently available in market, which works only in state of resting condition of vehicle.
My product will automatically supply air to the tyre & keep the vehicle in running condition even in case of puncture of tyre.
This product will continue to supply air in tyre after its got puncture & make a state of equilibrium with amount of air releasing in running condition is equal to amount of air ...

In India alone number of accidents takes place due to small negligence in driving. Among the careless driving comes the unretracted stand.The unretract stand causes major accidents in roads for the rider and fellow road users. There are many mechanical system’s such as pneumatics, servo motors and other component’s used to retract the stands. The existing system is having some pros and cons such as separate space for mounting and disturbance for rider.In our project the stand is retracted using the gear pedal as triggering mechanism for the retrieving of the stand there by reducing unwanted disturbance ...
The automotive navigation system is gaining momentum. Collision avoidance systems have been used at 70 GHz to detect objects in front of vehicles. The proposed concept is to use a similar principle for tracking and following moving vehicles. One application would be to lock on the vehicle ahead and maintain a safe distance without the driver control. Another application would be to use the tracking system as a means to tow a driverless vehicle or convoy of vehicles behind a leading truck.
Tracking systems have been used in radar and satellite application using Pseudo Mono-pulse Timed Multiplexed scanning ...
