The vetronic wheelchair gets into shape for giving some revolutionary assistance to patients, those dependent on wheelchairs, the elderly, stroke patients and others desiring or even requiring personal mobility and lift access.

• It is always physically challenged people's dream to compete with ordinary people by giving them a tough fight. Even though, their mental strength accompanies them for doing it, their physical strength will not give hand to them.

• And so, the system shows promise for moving these groups of people into the workforce and removing the burden placed on the healthcare industry. The system has been prototyped to show the basic concept of such a smooth mobility system.

• The ...

A flying car with one or two Hydrogen Powered Turbines that feed an electric generator and so on an electric engine on each wheel. On flying mode, most load is retired from the generator on the turbine, so the turbine car run free and thrust the car. Also wings pop-off from below the car and return there for Road Mode.

The advantages of the Power Source are that it is lighter than a battery pack, it can thrust the car into flying, the electric driven wheels allow controlling torque on each wheel in real time as a driving assist. Finally and most importantly, it is a sustainable ecological source of ...

Vehicle OEMs are adapting to touch technologies for vehicle infotainment systems, dashboard and consoles. It is also customer driven as people are used to touch screens and want to have similar features in the cars they drive; have integrated and customized interface that they use on their personal tablets, smartphones etc. in their cars without having to learn a new GUI.. There are a lot of products out in the market and every car manufacturer have their own way of coming up with touch technologies in vehicles.

But still a lot of research has to be done to come up with ways to make touch technologies in vehicles more intuitive and most importantly safer for the drivers. In vehicles touch ...

The Haptic Driver Feedback System is an advanced driver assist device that uses haptic feedback to alert the driver to multiple driving situations. It interfaces with the vehicle's computer to use data from various on-board systems to provide more effective driver assists.

The HDFS, in base trim, plugs directly into the vehicle's ECU through a wireless module. Monitoring traction control and other data, the seat will provide directional haptic feedback to alert the driver to situations such as loss of traction in individual wheels, ABS action, sensor death, and proximity alert (if available). In full implementation, the HDFS would be fully-integrated into the seat and computer system from the OEM. When available, it would perform all the ...

The Heavy Duty Aftermarket Super Truck is a revolution in fuel efficient technology. Unique patented system from Enviro-Cool delivers up to 10% reduced fuel consumption, dramatic under hood heat reduction and sound reduction. This is one of the most commercially viable and ready aftermarket upgrades in the industry. And one of the most fuel efficient upgrades without touching engine or body aerodynamics. This is a platform truck for aftermarket efficient technologies to collaborate on and deliver a true "used super truck" that is affordable for today's fleets and owners. #TheFutureIsCool

The Advanced Engine Cooling System uses a central radiator plenum, two electric fans and hood duct work to transfer hot radiator air to outside the body - not into the engine compartment. The ...

Connected vehicles will reduce traffic collisions, reduce road congestion, ease commuting, pave the way for autonomous vehicles, and reduce pollution. Hermes Optical Protection System (HOPS) combines LEDs, a digital projection system such as LCDs or micromirrors and a optical sensor into a vehicle light.

Placed in the headlights and tail lights, this system provides an inexpensive system for short-range, high speed communication and obstacle detection. The LEDs could be modulated at tens of millions of bits per second providing both traditional vehicle lighting and a secure communications system. The optical system would be immune to intentional or unintentional jamming; unlike RF -based systems would be relatively difficult for a hacker to monitor and enter.

The optical system could communicate with ...

My name is Ionel Mihailescu. I am Canadian, mechanical engineer, designer, P. Eng. I am located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I invented a new and much more efficient, internal combustion engine. I call it, High Performance Continuous Internal Combustion Engine. I got the Patent Grant in USA, US 8,464,685 B2, June 18, 2013; Canada, 2,785,540, 2014/12/09. My engine is working as a continuous piston, where would be a continuous auxiliary piston-cylinder, with external actuation, pushing air in a main piston-cylinder, where the burning take place continuous. If we would neglect friction, heat or  PV, (pressure*volume, of the gasses) lost, I would get with my engine the maximum possible useful energy. So, almost all the extra PV created by burning will be ...

Present invention in general relates to design and implement a mechanical device for modern pick-up mechanism utilizing hydraulic system and in particular to design a hoisting device that is hydraulic dump system of the pick-up bed.

Unloading of the regular pick-up is not easy, time consuming and labour requirement is necessary, which is both slow and exhausting. In tractor-trolley we do not get speed, average, compact size and long distance travelling is not economical. This project was motivated by a need to create a device that would cause a pick-up bed to lift up quickly and dump its contents, eliminating the need to use labour, which is both slow and exhausting. This device will be incorporated into ...

In the modern era the need for fuel efficiency is highly required as there is a stigma that World War-3 would arise due to fuel and water crisis. A survey in 2012 estimated 3,900,000,000 gallons of gasoline wasted each year in the U.S. by idling vehicles. By 2020, it will be difficult to buy a new vehicle that runs while idling. So we are here to put forward our idea on hybrid traffic modes in automobiles.

While waiting at the traffic signals most of us would never switch off our engine due to two reasons: one is the universal fact which is Homo sapiens laziness and the other is an agitation that whether engine would start again and also ...

We all know that the pollution rate is increasing day by day. Every day a vehicle with much reduced pollution rate is released but still the rate of pollution is still the same. That is because of the increased traffic and the vehicle smoke. Automobile engineers have an aim; make vehicles but make no harm. Since i am an automobile engineer who follows the same motto I started thinking about how pollution can be controlled. So from my survey it was found that two wheelers are the main source of pollution especially when they are at low gears. The fundamental thing in any vehicles is that, the rpm (revolution per minute) should be high during low gears. That time a ...
