The most common automotive occupant protection system in use today is the three-point automatic seat belt. Its function is to restrain the occupants in their seats in the event of an accident so that they are decelerated at the same rate as the passenger cell in which they are sitting, and are not exposed to severe, uncontrolled forces. But in opposite situation especially after road collision, the victims trapped inside the vehicle will be facing more crucial situation because they are locked by the seatbelt. The current seat belt design is like a double-edged sword and it only can benefit the person using it but also can cause harm in the certain situation. In order to solve this issue, ...

Emergency transmission System in a Vehicle - ETSV

Though the technology has accelerated to a level where the autonomous vehicles are at the verge of coming into reality, we still face various issues pertaining to human safety and wellness. The present disclosure would address some of the safety issues faced by minors and adults traveling long distances and alone.

The present invention aims to detect and facilitate immediate medical attention to an unwell driver in a vehicle.

The emergency transmission device as per the present invention has two units. One is suspended on the steering wheel and the other on the dock. The former records the heartbeat, breathing, blood pressure and frequency of the driver and the latter analyzes ...

Electric fans are used to move air across vehicle engine and/or air conditioning heat exchangers (radiators) at low speeds or while the vehicle is stopped in traffic. Upon achieving ~25 to 35mph the fans are shut off due to incoming air to the radiator from vehicle movement has more volume than fans can generate. After cut-off, the fans spin uselessly in the airstream flowing past the radiators. This concept intends to use the electric fans, when not being used to move air across the heat exchangers, to harvest the incoming air at normal vehicle speeds to generate electricity to help keep vehicle battery systems ...

The technical solution refers to the device of the catamaran, which allows, due to the energy of the sun, wind, and chemical energy, to move cargo and passengers during sea transportation.

The main elements of the catamaran construction include: (1) two hulls connected on top by a deck-type bridge (2) felling, to accommodate a crew and passengers with a total of up to 12 people (3) a power supply system with three power sources (4) two electric motors, installed in the rear of each body of the catamaran, to ensure catamaran’s propulsion and maneuvering.

The ship's power supply system consists of (1) solar panels, (2) wind generators (3) galvanic cells, (4) two batteries (not shown in the figure).

Last Mile, in transportation and logistics, refers to the one last mile from the source to the nearest public transit hub. In developing countries like China, and India, shared mobility is prevalent over individual ownership of cars. Also, increasing mass transit system in these countries paves way to cover the majority of the city by public transit. Daily office goers and single person commuters prefer the public transportation system for commutation. Major challenges faced by them are in covering the last mile.

With increasing pollution, and reducing air-quality in major cities of thickly populated countries, strong emphasis is given in electrical power-train with zero emission, over conventional fossil fuels.

The cost of last mile delivery of goods and services ...

Estimates show that the final leg (“The Final Mile”) of delivery can comprise more than 25% of a product’s total transportation cost.

Shopping for groceries is time consuming and inefficient. It simply does not make much sense to use a 2,000 kg car with a 100 kg person to collect (or deliver) 2 kg of groceries.

New transport systems for human beings (such as Hyperloop) is fundamentally a “nice to have” concept; in our day and age people do not need to physically meet on a daily basis (they can even reproduce without meeting).

However, human beings do need to ingest food on a regular basis. Bringing food within physical grabbing distance of humans is a “need to have.” ...

Fuel Quality Sensors (fuelbox): digital and real time fuel scanners for captive fleet and long term rental B2B markets:

The arrival of stricter regulations and the impact of the various scandals that continue to shake the automotive world make the introduction and then the spread of a set of connected sensors as necessary "real time" monitoring elements for the regulation on the CLEAN internal combustion engine. As it is already the case for the performance of pollution control systems in cars, these technologies will show the smooth functioning of regulatory systems. Then automakers would like to offer cost-effective CO2 reduction solutions to their professional customers who pay an annual vehicle tax and/or for CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) awareness. The ...

With increase in car, bike and automobile industry all over the world and more demand for petrol and diesel in industrial use, in the future there would be acute shortage of the petrol and diesel by the year 2050. Many countries are already planning for zero emission to curb carbon emission by 2050 to tackle global warming and green house gases. Solar powered cars and electric cars have their own limitations such as speed and maintenance.

We thought instead of making new alternative fuels like gas, electric batteries, solar energy etc. for cars, buses and other transport vehicles why not to focus on moving roads? To support zero emission and curb carbon we suggests an idea for future road ...

After years of research I (Diji N J) was able to scientifically explain art of levitation of yogis.

Diamagnetic materials can be repelled,(in a non-uniform field Diamagnetic materials are repelled from the region of greater magnetic field) and magnetic materials can be attracted by strong magnetic field.

Neurons in brain can emit electric signals. Electric signal can produce electromagnetic field. Thoughts can stimulate neuron to produce electric signal. Many small electromagnetic fields can be combined to produce large electromagnetic field, by aligning source of EM field. Brain contains billions of neurons. By controlling thoughts, it is possible to synchronously stimulate each neuron in brain such that EM field produced is perfectly aligned to generate a very strong EM field. ...

The guided best fit of luggage in the trunk is an application which integrates with the infotainment system of the car. The application requires an internet connection to procure trunk details of the cars and luggage. The user has to either select the bag type if available in the database, if not available scan the bag from the camera. The dimensions of the bag are auto calculated and stored in the local database of the app to help the user during the next usage.

The user will be prompted to add all the bags he wants to load into the trunk and option will be provided if the bag has fragile items. Once all ofthe bags are entered or ...
