BURN CALORIES-NOT FUELS
Abstract—The prime aim of this project is to design, analyse and fabricate a double wishbone (A arm) suspension for a hybrid cycle.This project focus on designing and fabricating a suspension system considering stability of the vehicle and comfort of the rider. Thus a double wishbone suspension system is adopted for front wheels. The dynamics of the vehicle and the design parameters are considered while designing, analysing and fabricating the vehicle.
Keywords— A arm, Double wishbone, Suspension geometry, Upright

There are approximately 1 billion cars on the road and they are responsible for anywhere between 50 and 90 percent of air pollution in urban areas. Apart from pollution, our world is facing another challenge in dealing with its oil resources which given their non-renewability are depleting at an alarming rate. After understanding the crisis scientists have started working on finding cleaner fuel which will also help in reducing our dependency on oil. While the discovery of alternate fuel may take some time, we for time being should focus on reducing the pollution caused by petrol and diesel. If ...
LCMLM (Linear Controlled Magnetless Machine), features of this type of linear motor is that the high fault tolerance, low cost, competitive weight, due to the absence of permanent magnet. The aim of the project is to investigate and develop the use of Linear Controlled Magnetless Machine for railway braking operations/ though the applications can be used for driving (reversal of braking). Conventionally, train systems work based on the principles of adhesion of the wheels and track and friction, to slow down the train for braking. But the issues with these types of systems are the wear and tear of ...

• Installed an external vacuum petcock between carburetor and a modified air intake on a motorbike, so the setup is such that fuel cannot not enter the carburetor until engine is cranked. The modified air intake manifold has a vacuum pipe attached to the petcock’s air inlet, which will pull down the diaphragm and allow the fuel to flow from fuel-tank to the carburetor and ultimately resulting the air fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber.
• Hence, this system will allow the fuel to flow into the engine when the engine is cranked, thus avoiding fuel leakage ...
In response to climate issues, there is a significant growth and improvement of electric cars including their market. On the other hand, the long charging time can be the downside of electric cars. To tackle this challenge, Charging Shoe can be the solution. The Charging Shoe and the Automatic Charging Station are inspired by the railway industry, the landing gear, and automatic car washing; the aim is to provide a quick way to charge electric cars.
First, the car enters the screening station where the car is analyzed; the type of car, how much battery left, the battery specification, ...
About 4.5 million premature deaths are caused by outdoor air pollution. 50% to 90% of the air pollution is caused just by the vehicular toxic emission. This research is about a design of series of processes which might create a fuel cycle in an internal combustion (IC) engine setup. This proposed fuel cycle consists of separating oxygen from air using Mixed Ionic Electronic Conducting Membranes. Then oxy-fuel combustion takes place which will be resulting into energy to run the vehicle and a pure carbon-dioxide stream. Water-injector is used to keep the IC engine cool during very high temperature combustion process. Carbon-dioxide is then ...
The automobile lighting system consists of lighting and signaling devices mounted or integrated to the front, sides, rear and in some cases the top of a motor vehicle to light the roadway for the driver and increase the conspicuity of the vehicle; allowing other drivers and pedestrians to see a vehicle's presence, position, size, the direction of travel, and the driver's intentions regarding the direction and speed of travel. Though, the influence of lighting system on the modern automobile is evident in the aspect of maintenance and road safety considerations. When a fault occurs in the automobile lighting system, ...
In India, more than 140,000 people died in 2016 due to road accidents. In countries like the USA and China, the numbers are even worse. Many lives could have been saved if the passengers used seat belts and many accidents could have been prevented if the drivers were a bit more alert. Our innovation offers a solution:
Smart Seat Belt (SSB) :
• Intelligent Ignition System (IIS): Seat belts are a primary form of safety in any four-wheeler. But people seem to ignore this form of safety and hence are putting their and other’s lives in danger. ’IIS’ allows ...
Cast iron automobile brake rotors are heavy and suffer from limited lifetimes and excessive wear in the form of dust. Aluminum (Al) metal matrix composites (MMCs) with ceramic particulate reinforcement such as silicon carbide (SiC) have long been considered as significantly lighter weight, potentially longer lasting and more environmentally favorable automobile brake discs; however, previous efforts to introduce MMC brake rotors into automobiles have had limited success only in smaller, lighter mass vehicles. Thermal management of the discs has been problematic, because the ceramic has much lower thermal conductivity than the metal matrix. Other limitations are due to processing ...

The universal joint has been fundamentally the same for the last century ... until now. The new approach uses a square ball and seven other components, which is a stark contrast to the more than 100 parts found in standard u-joints.
The assembly is simplified by replacing many central components with one – a Square Ball. The Square Ball transmits torque from one yoke to another through its square features while simultaneously providing the ability for both yokes to accommodate an angle utilizing the round features. It’s held in a central location of the cylindrically shaped yoke mouth with ...
