Internet of Things in the Car

The product is developed with a single aim of improving safety on the road and reducing accidents. Implementation of IoT in the car with the smartphone, smartwatch and car console (which are now manufactured by tech companies with ability to interact with phones) creates an interface for transfer of important information. Safety can be greatly improved through monitoring driver activity from phone and smartwatches. The product involves two parts – development of a smartphone app and also a IoT enabled Breathalyzer which is a hardware product.

Globally, road accidents contributed to 1.25 million deaths. Distracted driving is the number 1 cause of road accidents in the U.S. with 424,000 injuries in 2013 due to distracted ...

Kuma: Electric Vehicle for micromobility

Today, traffic jams and pollution are a part of everyday life in big cities and they have become one of the main problems for the quality of urban life.

In recent years, the number of cars has increased dramatically due to its prioritization over other transport modes. Transport solutions for cities should be focused directly in micro-mobility (distances of less than 10 km), encouraging the use of more efficient alternatives according to the distance traveled and the circumstances of usage (what we call strategic mobility).

Some major cities have begun to create an appropriate environment for the inclusion of sustainable projects, such as: policies for the use of bicycles, promotion of public transportation, and ...

My project is about a license access vehicle. Nowadays you've heard that most of the road accidents are caused by rash driving by school students of age below 18. Though there is a strong order of government that those under 18 years are not allowed to drive the vehicle, students do not mind at all if they are driving the vehicle without a license. So to rectify this problem I have made a device called "license access vehicle." It will allow access only to the people who have the license. It works with two scanning devices -- one is for the license access and the other one is for finger access. A license access will helps to start the engine and the finger access ...

The challenge with a seat belt is to prevent submarining of the occupant under the lap belt. This challenge increases as the size of the occupant reduces such as with 5%ile female. Traditionally this is addressed in front seats with a rigid steel pan (in combination with a pretensioner) to limit pelvis displacement.

Lifebelt is a webbing strap placed in the seat base, just below the seating surface, which is continuous with the standard seat belt and is therefore loaded when the seat belt loads. Its effect is to form a loop around the upper leg area which encloses the pelvis and prevents submarining. It can be located close to the seat surface and therefore engages very early ...

Picture no.1
It is an ordinary car Nissan 350z. It works thanks to its V6 combustion engine like the original version. However, this engin is enriched with two supercharged turbochargers which increase the performance from 308HP to 500HP. The car is suited for rides in a forrest, draging trees or other towing purposes. Thanks to the height of the vehicle, it can also be used in case of natural disasters (chassis from Jeep Wrangler). The prototype can also be used as a movie prop of some sci-fi movie.

Picture no.2
Prototype is based on a 1970 Buick Riviera. It is settled on a off-road chassis and enriched with a supercharger with self-adjusting flap. The vehicle approached the borderline of just over 800 ...

In today's world many road accidents are occurring due to speeding. We see many people in our daily life, that they are not following traffic rules and not observing the speed limit. Although it was mentioned on the speed limit board. To avoid accidents up to some extent, we are introducing a system called "Location Based Automatic Speed Control System" (LBASCS).

By using this system we can automatically control the speed of the automobiles. In this system we install a micro controller with RFID antenna at the speed limit board or other place. The automobiles are connected with an ECU (Electronic Control Unit), which is additionally connected with an RFID antenna to receive the signal from the transmitters, ...

Location sensitive speed adaptation (LSSA) is a safety technology that alerts drivers when they exceed the speed limit. LSSA activates when a driver exceeds the posted speed limit for a section of road by a set speed. Audio and visual warnings activate to remind the driver that they are going too fast. LSSA contains a speed control system which helps in forcibly reducing the speed of the vehicle to comply with the speed limit of the zone it is to enter. Speed control is done by controlling the fuel flow to the engine

Location Sensitive Speed Adaptation (LSSA) is any system that constantly monitors vehicle speed and the local speed limit on a road and implements an action when the ...

Low cost 3D ToF CMOS technology allows mass-production solid-states Lidars to
provide fast-motion sensing based on 3D imaging for Automotive Driving Assistance (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle.

About 1.25 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes.

Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death among young people, aged 15–29 years. Therefore, ADAS and autonomous vehicle is becoming a big hype as it will save a lot of lives each year.

The technology relies on the measurement of the time of arrival of reflected illumination from infra-red lasers (direct time-of-flight or ToF) detected by single photonavalanche diodes (SPAD). This provides :
- Resolution ( >1.5 mm, 10ps time of single-photon ...

Magnetic-Levitation (MagLev) rail provides a virtually frictionless way to transport people and goods at high speeds of 300 mph (480 km/h) or more. MagLev trains can be fast, but they are still trains – they must stop and start often, and stations might be far from passengers’ homes or businesses. As such, MagLev trains offer little advantage over conventional steel-wheels-on-steel-rails systems.

Let’s separate “railroad” from “train” and have individual vehicles that use computer-automated technology to go non-stop from the starting to the destination depots. Each vehicle might transport one passenger, or a small group; or one load of freight, such as the daily delivery to a supermarket.

This would require a fast, probably non-mechanical way of switching vehicles from ...

INNOVATION :
Existing design/prior art wiping systems for the last 100 years haven't changed much. Almost all cars use Motors that drives a Worm wheel and 4-bar linkages to give torque and high forces to wiper arm and blade. My invention relates to a Curved Maglev Rail and guide connected to Wiper Arm & Blade Assembly, includes frictionless Magnetic Levitation/Electromagnetic propulsion systems. This is expected to wipe efficiently with reduced overall energy consumption, larger wiping area, higher safety, visibility, reduced noise. Can be applied in various transportation applications, present and future that may have highly curved glasses.

Attached images show the working parts. Video shows Animations and 3D images of the mechanism. A curved Maglev Rail is matched to ...
