Improper tire maintenance causes every year 124 fatalities, 9000 injures in US (35 deaths, 4000 injured in Europe), and common under-inflation produces a fuel penalty of 1-2% on a reference cycle (with only the driver on board and warmed-up tires). An automatic on-board system is developed to reduce fuel consumption and improve vehicle safety by means of intelligent and autonomous management of in-tire pressure during vehicle operation. The system maintains a reference inflation and/or adapts it to current conditions. It works while the vehicle is running and does not require the intervention of the driver to set the target ...
Using different sensors the speed of the vehicle is analysed and the brake is applied automatically. Here we define two terms: Traffic detection and overtaking priority. By overcoming these two objectives the vehicle for different conditions can be designed and the automation in driving can be applied and IoT can be interfaced to analyse and to monitor the traffic and the car's location. This idea was implemented in a small range by TESLA cars and there are some lags in those conventional design. Thus by implementing this technology the safety of the vehicles and passengers is ...

Automatic pneumatic bumper is used to prevent the driver and vehicle from collisions. This design converts the impact load into a gradual load. Design has a UV sensor which senses the obstacles and UV receiver which sends the signal to the control unit which has a compressed air cylinder, lever aur velocity sensor. Velocity sensor measures the speed. When the speed is above the limit automatic lever opens which the compressed air cylinder which actuate the piston cylinder so the bumper is open bumper has a sleeve on which a spring is attached which converts the impact load into gradual ...
Field of the invention:
This invention is related to automatic turn signal ON/OFF based on the steering angle of the vehicle, center of gravity of the vehicle and side stand position.
Turn signal switch ON/OFF based on driver/rider input
Brief summary of the invention:
When the driver/rider fails to put the indicator,
1) Based on the steering angle, respective indicator light automatically gets ON/OFF. This automatic signal will be useful when the driver/rider fails to put the indicator while entering the road from parking, during U turn, reversing the vehicle, both the indicator light will be ON (if ...
Here I have attached a file which speaks about automotive nail striker. As it's simplified construction, everyone can understand its function easily. As per the law of electromagnetics induction motor can give mechanical output which is further converted into translatory motion. This translatory motion is used to strike the nailhead which is hidden in the spring at the ...
A bicycle model which can drive itself autonomously and also be driven manually as and when required is presented to be used in an urban bicycle-sharing system. The proposed system would be ideal for use in last-mile transportation. Any autonomous vehicle along with all its advantages of reducing human effort and providing better repeatability etc. carries some disadvantages which are very well known and are majorly the reasons why it's difficult to get autonomous vehicles on the roads. The biggest advantage that this autonomous bicycle, named the i-Bike has, is that it takes the best of both the worlds, ...
To ensure driving safety, tire pressure monitoring systems have been strictly regulated in every new vehicle from 2008 in the USA, 2014 in Europe and Taiwan, 2015 in Japan, 2016 in Korea, and 2018 in China. However, the inconvenience to define tire position correctly after a tire rotation, snow tire change, or new sensor replacement has been a challenge with these systems, which causes a position accuracy problem. In addition, drivers must go to the factory or tire store to set up their systems, which is an added expense and a time waste.
This creation is an ...

Commercial Vehicles such as trucks and trailers usually get stuck up in muddy trenches or in snow with one of wheels in the trench and the other on level ground. With an open differential, driver’s effort to pull the vehicle out normally ends up with one wheel, which is rotating still going deeper into the trench. Other differential types such as limited slip, locked, viscous coupling and Torsen differential have been used to overcome this difficulty but with limited success.
Differential is a device, which allows the individual wheels to be driven at different speeds while transmitting torque to ...

My concept was inspired by the game called "Jenga." To make composite fabrication somewhat easier I developed a system of arranging blocks in a pattern to give the shape of the final product. This mold is then wrapped in the composite material. The mold is then encased in an outer shell the resin added and then can be pressed or left to stand free. My prototype "box" has openings at each end however it is possible to have only one opening the size of which will be determined by the relative size of the blocks used in the construction ...
This project aims at providing a new method of Regenerative Braking, by deactivating fuel supply and ignition during periods of braking and providing a valve to divert the outlet air from the cylinder to a storage tank, acting as a reciprocating compressor. Energy is spent in compressing the air and hence, slows down the vehicle, along with the production of compressed air.
STORED MAPS FOR THE IDLE PERIODS
The deactivation period is calculated based on the stored maps according the level of braking desired. The electronic system also ensures the direct use of brake pads when the extent of ...
