One consistent problem with traffic/driver interaction is the guesswork required to judge if/when a person approaching is braking his/her vehicle, specifically to make a turn. Crossing and entering traffic is a key source of accidents. In this invention, a forward brake light (high intensity red) comprised of LED elements capable of changing hue as brake pressure is applied, would serve to provide a visible confirmation that the driver is, in fact, braking. An argument that this would falsely lure a waiting driver into the street is moot, because if the color/hue of the light is not fully red (beyond a certain saturation) the indication would be to not proceed. However, in contrast, if a person sees an on-coming vehicle ...

Accidents often occur on hilly roads with cars falling down. All of the passengers (with driver) are dead from this accident and fortunately which persons are alive, they are deadly wounded. I send an idea to prevent these accidents.

For my innovation, on a car that runs on hilly roads, to be fitted with four extra (supported) wheels with chassis, which are foldable when needed. Two wheels to be fitted at just rear position of front spring plate and these wheels can fold parallel with chassis towards back side. Another two wheel to be fitted at the end of chassis and these will fold towards front side of chassis. These supported tires may be smaller size than main tires, ...

Trains, buses, coaches hit the headlines by the horrific crashes which take so many lives. As a Mathematician/Engineer I have had a career in aerospace systems which has included the design of airbag systems including the gas generation subsystem. The long stroke airbag is made from vulcanised aramid cloth . It primary use to date has been the ejection of stores from flying vehicles. The same mechanism can be used as an inflatable ladder pressurised by an air pump. There are other forms of airbags and the most common is the reversing diaphragm. This type is used on cars. In addition, I have devised a gas divert system which uses a sleeve valve operated by 8 linear electrical motors. ...
Manual transmissions have several advantages over automatics, including less frictional losses, lower weight, greater durability, and significantly lower maintenance and repair costs. Enthusiasts also love them.

However, current designs have drawbacks. Shifting takes time to master, and shift speeds can never match the best automated transmissions. Starting on a hill or parking in a tight space requires a careful touch and practice. Powerful engines can have a heavy clutch. Now, even fuel economy is a big problem: with current manual transmission designs limited to seven speeds at the most, while automatic transmissions can have 10 (the ideal number for fuel economy), manual transmissions now have noticeably worse fuel economy. Because of all this, manuals are disappearing.

I am an enthusiast and ...

The invention is a "central-hydraulic" suspension system that has major advantages regarding the control of the prime suspension parameters, so as to provide superior road-holding and handling.

The system allows the front and rear roll-stiffness, and the bump and rebound damping characteristics of each wheel to be independently adjusted. The "handling envelope" - or "cornering force v. under-over-steer" curve for the race-car can be quickly refined continuously to suit the track conditions and driver preference.

Without using mechanical anti-roll bars, the front and rear roll-stiffness can be separately regulated - by connection to the steering - so as to prudently control the handling characteristics.

The system provides individual adjustable damping of all 8 wheel movements (LF/RF/LR/RR - up & ...

Utilizing a retractable “curb-finder” type mechanism ("hook") to find an installed electromagnetic side-rail ("rail") running from median solar panels on the innermost lane, an electric vehicle can charge its battery while auto-cruising the freeway. Conserving the driver’s energy and allowing for freedom of movement within the vehicle while maintaining safe distances between other vehicles connected to the system contributes to improved overall traffic conditions. Nearing their desired exit ramp, the driver releases connection to the side-rail system and resumes control of their vehicle with a recharged battery and improved state of ...

All electric motors convert Electrical Input Power to Mechanical Output Power.

The ReGen-X Stepper Motor is a unique patent pending new motor design which delivers Mechanical Output Power AND Electrical Output Power at the same time.

The ReGen-X Stepper Motor also converts electrical input power to mechanical output power just like any electric motor but it also delivers electrical output power in a two stage approach..

The ReGen-X Stepper Motor employs; 1) the ReGenX Generator Coil, which produces a Complementary-Electromagnetic-Torque when delivering electric power to a load in concert with 2) Magnetic Field Flyback Collection Motor Control Circuit such that the motor delivers mechanical drive shaft output power while also delivering more output current than the motor coils consume.

A regenerative braking system is a system in which the power is generated through friction energy while applying brakes which otherwise would be lost to the environment. In this system, an electric motor that normally drives a hybrid or pure electric vehicle is essentially operated in reverse (electrically) during braking or coasting. Instead of consuming energy to propel a vehicle, the motor acts as a generator that charges the on-board batteries with electric energy that would normally be lost as heat through traditional mechanical friction brakes.

In this system the heat and kinetic energy is being converted into electrical energy with the help of generator. The amount of energy which is been produced with the help of generator thus ...

Working offshore on the back deck of supply vessels constitutes one of the highest exposure areas for vessel crew. Eliminating this exposure would improve safety and efficiency. This concept creates an equipment system that can be retrofit to existing assets to leverage the benefits associated with automation for a reasonable cost. The system consists of several components.
1. Deck sections that include electro-magnetic and mechanical locks to secure the cargo without human assistance. These sections are referenced to the vessel in such a way as to provide weight calculations to the vessel’s officers to aid in stability calculations.
2. Cargo retrofit bases and crane attachment sections. The bases are designed in such a way as to interface with the ...

This new back-up camera system for automotive vehicles has the purpose of eliminating black spots or areas where a standard back-off camera cannot identify a vehicle circulating and thus avoid accidents. This camera is installed on both left and right rear ends (break light). It is activated by the driver depending on where he wants to turn the vehicle in reverse and then deactivate it to automatically activate the conventional rear camera and finish the maneuver. It would be installed in all vehicles with very low cost, easy to produce and profitable for all vehicles in the world, aims to avoid accidents with motorcycles and motor vehicles in parking areas, being of great use for beginner drivers, giving driver ...
