DESCRIPTION

In this project we have focused on improving the steering response in automobiles using a rack and pinion assembly. The main purpose is to design and manufacture a new arrangement of rack and pinion which enhances the maneuverability. Rack and pinion mechanism being compact and light package with kinematically stiffer characteristics is commonly employed on cars. A virtual rack and pinion steering assembly can be created using software like CAD, SOLIDWORKS and ANSYS. This implementation on the mechanism ultimately leads to a more sensitive and effective steering experience.

In our design we have provided two sets of teeth on the rack which meshes individually with two respective sets of teeth on the pinion. For this we have taken ...

Many revolutionary developments have taken place in the field of tire technology, from Dunlop tire to modern tubeless tires. Everyone is focused on improving durability, better traction, fuel economy etc. Beside all these developments, tire blowout is still a common problem and it is responsible for 50,000 accidents per year only in India. There is no solution to prevent accidents after tire blowout. In the United States alone, DOT estimates that under inflated tires waste 2 billion US gallons of fuel each year.

Our system minimizes the chances of tire blowout by maintaining optimum pressure automatically and further if anyhow tire blowout occurs our system helps in maintaining control on vehicle.

Cause of accident and our solution(For heavy ...

AEROPTER CONCEPT CONFIGURATION: a lifting surface concept suitable for STOL/VTOL requirements.

Derives its lifting force from a fluid principle of force amplification referred to the COANDA EFFECT a rather complex phenomena of jet stream deflection and augmentation.

The primary features of the AEROPTER are shown in cross section (figure 1). The jet stream (primary flow) leaves the plenum chamber through a long thin rectangular nozzle at low temperature and medium pressure. A low static pressure region, by virtue of configuration design, is initiated by the primary air flow leaving the nozzle, which entrains ambient air through the porous media. Location of the primary nozzle with respect to the deflection surface and porous media is important. Air entrained near ...

Vehicular traffic in cities has a significant impact on environment, economy and life of many people. Thus, it is important to manage and organize it optimally and AI and new technologies may bring significant progress in this field. However, many traffic and transport optimization issues are NP-hard and are difficult to be solved optimally, especially in a large scale.

I am developing software for a large-scale traffic simulation, Traffic Simulation Framework (TSF), which can be used to design optimal traffic control strategies and optimal transport infrastructure, using advanced AI methods. In particular, I am applying neural networks to approximate outcomes of traffic simulations in order to speed up required computations, to evaluate large number of settings (e.g., traffic signal ...

The Major Problems:
➤~70% of fuel is wasted as heat in conventional engines/power-plants/waste-to-energy-systems which don’t combust the water/aquifers/air polluting fuel completely while also producing strong green-house NOx emissions. Fuel usage efficiency can be doubled without any emissions/pollutants. [CO2 is not a pollutant but a valuable resource].
➤Most plastic/trash/etc. is buried or dumped in oceans which pollute water/aquifers/air. 8MM tons of plastic winds up in the ocean yearly. This debris can be used as fuel for vehicles & electrical energy generation via our pollution-free, carbon-negative gasification and for useful industrial heat including large-scale water purification/desalination.

Solution:
For the foreseeable future internal-combustion-engines[ICE], hybrids and turbines will still be the go-to solutions. We solve the emissions problem with the low-cost AllFuel-TotalCombustion ...

Considering the increasing number of people asking for the use of a car - especially in emerging markets - my work for this little sporty coupe has taken my engagement to realize a composition of shape and surfaces can be best to print in aluminium, steel, or simply plastic marterials. You have to consider in fact that current cars of that category have a number of "facets", onto the body to keep practically impossibile to join to an easy and above all, easy to repair bodywork. For emerging market o the other hand there is a strong request of "emotional vehicles," able to promote a new way to go on the streets. And with dynamicity! I preview an engine for ...

This idea can solve the problem of vehicles skidding while driving on an ice coated road with a very easy way. One can drive safely on the ice coated road with the help of this device by attaching this device on the car.

How does your idea solve this problem?
MECHANISM: we will develop this device according to the diagram. In this device there will be 20 to 30 spikes which will be fixed with springs. There will be a hook to hold these springs. The spikes will be made with plastic or metal. We can take the length of these spikes as per car design. This device will be fixed in front of the both side tires according to ...

It is necessary to decrease use of conventional energy to save the world from pollution, warming and limited stock of fuel. Continuously research is running by many researcher/scientist and we have gained muchany success. I am not a scientist or researcher; I am an innovator only. I have think an idea to save fuel by using law of honorable Daniel Bernoulli at truck and wagon.

In case of heavy truck (loading), two wings like airplane of length 105cm and width 90cm (in maximum spreeded part) to be fitted at the top of back side of body/container. It will be not fixed, it to be fitted with a temporary structure. The structure to be make of easy fitting and ...

Though travelling has been fun for most, but some of them find it hectic and fearsome. It may be either due to lack of exposure for the procedures incorporated, issues related to communication or the person may be specially-abled. In any or all of the above cases, travel assistance plays an important role.

The present work involves developing a robot for assisting a specific group of people at crowded areas or areas of public interest. Abbie is a small capsule shaped robot (similar to R2D2 from Star Wars) which consists of a touch screen and a speech recognition software which efficiently assists people in moving with ease at unknown places where they have been for the first time viz. ...

The best way to describe this invention is an Archimedes screw that runs the length of a ship’s hull. It contrasts a conventional ship by replacing the single screw or propeller with the full length Archimedes screw. Upon startup the Archimedes screw will require extra torque but once moving the inertia should reduce the load on the device driving it. One drawback is the amount of space taken up in the ship’s hold, but that should be overridden by the secondary benefit of the device also acting as a ballast helping to stabilize the vessel. Different tweaks to this device could be the number of twists per meter, a larger inlet and smaller outlet giving a “jet” effect.
