DelfJet is an emergency water scooter special created for lifeguards. The idea of this project started from the need to save the lives of people in danger of involuntary drowning, and to shorten the time of the emergency intervention in these situations.

Studying the life-saving systems but also the watercraft transportation that already are on the market, I managed to think and design an object that could travel efficiently and quickly through water being equipped with a rescue system, that can be adapted as required by attaching various inflating devices existing on the market.

This scooter main body is made out of thermoformed ABS-polycarbonate, the lateral handles are made out of stainless steel pipe, and on the top part ...

In usage emission free hybrid motorcycle where the vehicle is moved with hydraulic pressure, which again is produced by electric-motor-driven hydraulic pump. After first simulations this system would achieve >8h autonom net driving time withot need to fill either electric accu or hydraulic accu.

Full autonomy is quaranteed by hand pump for hydraulics, and continous loading of electric accus by generator.

Advantages:

Light Li-Ion accus drive clean DC motor.
Hydraulical pressurised system works with very high efficiency, can produce remarkable power in a few seconds (calculatuoins show ability to accelerate 200kg vehicke from 0=>150 km/h in 6 seconds), recuperation of hydraulic pressure during braking ...

This is an energy-efficient means of transferring oxygen and methane from a gas phase into an aqueous solution using an array of 16 “U-Tubes” in a “Loop Reactor” for production of butanol automotive and aviation liquid fuel. One U-Tube consists of four 8 inch diameter inner pipes with an outer pipe diameter of 24 inches. The inner pipes carry water and injected O2 and CH4 gases downward at a water velocity 10X greater than the rise velocity of gas bubbles injected near the top of the inner pipes, ensuring efficient transfer of gases into solution. At the bottom of the inner pipes, water, along with dissolved oxygen and methane, flows upward into the space between the inside of the ...

Side mirrors are extremely common and mounted on any car, whether it is new or old. They are not among the optional features of a vehicle, mostly because their importance is vital for the driver’s safety. Their main purpose is to reflect the back of the car. Although it is more important to be attentive in front of you, paying attention in the back is just as significant. For instance, cutting out a different car implies for a little extra attention. Make sure no one else is on the next lane and the only way to do it is by looking in the wing mirror. The same rule applies when you try to park. It is imperative to know ...

The Orbital Engine was invented by John Patrick Ettridge from South Australia in 1969. His Provisional patent No.22884/70 has a priority date of 3rd December 1969 and Australian patent number 474336. This patent covered the use of two crankshafts geared to rotate together, or three crankshafts placed at 90 degrees apart, which imparted the orbital motion in the rotor, and covered the vanes being in the rotor, or the stator.

Many inventors had tried various engine, compressor and pump designs, trying to achieve the orbital motion, mainly by using the vanes to limit the spinning motion of the rotor. John Patrick Ettridge was the first to realize that the rotor motion had to be controlled first, independent of ...

The transportation sector is responsible for approximately 25% of greenhouse gas emissions and for hundreds of thousands of deaths from pollution every year. The need for zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) is obvious and urgent. The electric vehicle (EV) market continues to develop, but the range and refueling time of EVs make the widespread adoption of these ZEVs difficult. Most vehicle owners want to be able to take long trips, and the EV limitations are major hindrances to a faster uptake: The current new vehicle market share of EVs is under 1% in the U.S. There are plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) on the market with an internal combustion engine (ICE) range-extender integrated into the vehicle. However, the impact of the ...

This research presents an innovative application of evaporative cooling to provide thermal comfort in the cabin of slow and medium speed vehicles. Conventionally vapor compression refrigeration systems are used for air conditioning in automobiles which account for significant fuel/energy consumption under high cooling loads. Additionally, use of CFC based refrigerants imposes threat for global warming. Application of Evaporative cooling in residential applications had significantly reduced these drawbacks, and similar results are anticipated if adopted for mobile applications. The proposed design for automobile application is cheaper and highly suitable for a wide range of regions of the world having arid and semi-arid climate. The prototype performance lowered cabin temperature close to acceptable limit with less than 10% of energy consumption ...

Design concept of this project is simple: to reduce exhaust emission & satisfy emission norms in INDIA. Device contains one cylinder, one filter & two pipe connections -- one to connect exhaust silencer to cylinder & another to cylinder to open air. Cylinder is full with water and exhaust gases coming out from the exhaust directly come in contact with water and create ash pond, the same like obtained in power plants. And the remaining gases which cannot be absorbed by water will only able to leave inside the atmosphere.

Additional fins are provided at the cylinder surface so that it can rotate by air velocity while vehicle is in running condition. This will lead to increase mixing ...

Abstract: The internal combustion engine (ICE) has been the key to powering our society for the past century however spiralling fuel costs, emissions regulations and uncertainty surrounding foreign oil dependency has resulted in ever more stringent rules and regulations regarding the fuel consumption of engines. This project demonstrates the development of an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) experimental system which was coupled to a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) plant in order to investigate the viability of ORC system installation on Heavy Duty (HD) trucks. A 5kW ORC system has been designed and build at Brunel University in order to conduct research into system design, operation and component selection in order to determine the fuel economy benefits.

Background/Applications: The research ...

For all cars, I introduced a patented Extra Spotlights with Xenon or Laser Lamps to strengthen and increase the power of lighting used now, with no interference of the driver's vision, to stop accidents at night. The World Health Organization issued a report in 2014 placing Egypt  first in the world in road accidents; as a result of 13 thousand dead and 17 billion pounds annual losses, and this continues to grow so this is an important invention to Egypt and the world.

The second significance of this invention is the practical solution for reducing light pollution to the environment resulting from night lighting systems now used in all the cars. A lighting fixture center (Projectors and LEDs) in front of ...
