For a gasoline engine, part load throttling losses account for the majority of the fuel efficiency difference between it and a diesel engine. This device can recover up to half of that loss resulting in a 10%-15% improvement in vehicle fuel economy. Many design features of today's engines such as downsizing, downspeeding, variable valve timing, and variable displacement reduce some of this throttling loss by making the engine run at at higher load factor, but there are limits to the effectiveness of these methods.
The intake throttle controls the power of an engine by controlling the air flow into ...

The promise of V2X has arrived with Danlaw’s Through Glass Integrated V2X Antenna. It enables vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure, vehicle to everything communications using DSRC, providing a myriad of
For the best system performance, current state-of-the-art DSRC systems use a roof mounted antenna and achieve excellent communication robustness. However, a roof mounted antenna would require drilling holes to make the connections for the existing aftermarket vehicles. Some solutions may use antennas mounted internally within the vehicle, for example to the window. However, internal antenna performance is limited and decreased because of the vehicle’s pillars and roof interference. Drilling holes ...

This design intends to leverage gravity, by converting the rising and falling tide(s) into electrical power. The tides are an enormous source of energy available at local lakes, rivers, and ocean. The flow of water turning a turbine to produce electrical power is not new. However, valves to control and use the flow into and out of a reservoir, has been given little or no consideration - so far. Power, flow, (construction, operation), cost calculations are pending.
The combined effects of gravity of the sun and moon on bodies of water is shown in the graph below. Two rises and ...
Tinnitus is a serious health condition that can negatively affect a sufferer's quality of life and there is presently no known cure but with perseverance the perception of Tinnitus can be significantly reduced. Tinnitus is a complex audiological and neurological condition, and is most commonly linked to hearing loss of one form or another.
TINNITLESS is a tabletop instrument supporting several Tinnitus therapy regimes. I have designed a prototype, utilising some of the latest audiological research to maximise desensitivity of the central nervous system to hearing loss, promoting a lowering of Tinnitus perception. It gives the Tinnitus sufferer the ...

It has been estimated that every year, 220 million passenger car tires are punctured in the United States alone. Expand that statistic to include cars and commercial vehicles worldwide, and it becomes apparent that punctured tires is a significant problem.
Tire pressure monitoring sensors (TPMS) attempt to remedy this problem by continually monitoring the tires’ pressure, and alerting the operator in the event of an anomaly. However, this approach only alerts the operator once corrective action must be immediately undertaken. It can often take hours, days, or weeks for a nail to lower the tire pressure enough to trigger an ...

To close the hole requires a separate tool that is usually formed like a clamp and given a fire. Then burned about 15 minutes. From the above problems we tried to make the tool we named "TIRE PRESS." This tool is more practical than the previous tool because of its small shape and can utilize the engine heat to close the hole. Use of this tool is very easy and can be stored in the trunk of the ...

Problem: Huge fueling costs of semi trailer trucks due to low fuel mileage.
The heavier the vehicle is, the more energy it needs to get moving. Reducing weight is a very effective way to improve a vehicle’s efficiency. As shown in fig 1, currently when a container full of cargo is loaded on a semi trailer, its weight W1 (weight of container) in addition to W2 (weight of semi trailer) acts on its wheels, thereby increasing cumulative load on truck. If we are able to reduce this weight using external system (of lesser weight) we will ...

Tobor Robotics Inc. is building the TIE (Tobor Innovation Experiment) versatile humanoid robot platform. This platform will combine semi-active mechanisms inspired by the human body with AI to bring about the physical skills and autonomy required for functionality. Currently, the platform is aimed at providing in home care for our aging population. We have intellectual property in the realm of prosthetics/robotics that can be used to build the basis of this robotic platform.
The world today is fast moving and people across the world have problems with work - life balance. The TIE Series will be the first humanoids ...
THE HIGH TECH TOILET/ TOILET AND BIDET SYSTEM
If a small percentage of bathrooms in new construction will use this new HIGH TECH TOILET and if a small percentage of the MILLIONS of existing bathrooms replace the existing toilet, it will create more than a BILLION dollars business.
The first customers of mass buying will be the Hotels industry, by replacing the existing toilet with the more appealing and useful HIGH TECH TOILET. New condominiums, new homes and condominium conversion developer will use this HIGH TECH TOILET to attract more potential buyers, while ...

The Torso in a Box replicates the anatomical variation in material properties of the intended target. Panels of material simulating skin, muscle, bone and the internal organs are layered in the appropriate order to create a model for testing the effectiveness of self defense ammunition on the intended target. All of the materials in the Torso in a Box are recyclable so once you perform your test and determine the wound cavity, you can drop the box in the recycle bin.
Unlike ballistics gel, the Torso in a Box is easy to use. Just set it down range and ...
