Mercedes Benz CLX - Conscious Luxury Concept

The main idea was to solve the issues that we will face in the future in the mega cities all around the world. We already see many concepts that try to approach some of these problems but design and life its not only to solve these issues, we require products that improve the life of the users and also the comfort and luxury. How i approach it, its not only based on materials or fashion criteria, for me the future of luxury in all products will be extremely related to how the product its done, the interaction with the user, the simplicity and efficiency, the foot print they leave behind, the origin ...

Design Statement:
Design consists of the following main parts.
1. Electric Bike
2. Road Surface
3. Rail Track
4. Panto-graph
5. Cylindrical / Conical Shaped Rollers
6. Led Displays or Notification Boards
7. Internal threading in Wheel hub to hold and support cylindrical/ conical rollers

Working:
Motorbike vehicle runs on the road surface for normal distance. For long trip or journey, motorbike engines/wheels are powered by electrical energy, running on the rail tracks with the help of cylindrical / conical shaped rollers. LED Displays or Notification Boards are placed along the path of track to provide journey-related information to the ...

Living in New Zealand, one of the challenges we face especially during the winter months is sun-strike while driving. This is due to the sun being low in the sky on clear winter mornings or evenings.

Over the years, we had several accidents due to poor visibility and unawareness apart from being poorly equipped. This can be prevented with the introduction of better technology. Innovation is at the peak and we are in the 21st century with the advancement in technology, research, economy, human collaboration and confidence.

We possibly could innovate effective and reliable equipment which would benefit everyone and around the world. With numerous cars on the road using sophisticated technology, there is a lack of development ...

This approach describes a technique to be able to transfer large amounts of electrical energy from a stable platform to a high velocity moving vehicle in a near vacuum environment with no physical contact. In some of the new Hyperloop type transport systems, large amounts of energy will need to be stored (batteries) or created (fuel based motors) to power the on-board functions required for the operation of the transport Hyperloop type vehicles. These ‘on-board’ functions include magnetic levitation, air compressors and pumping systems, lighting, heating and cooling of passenger volumes, control electronics, etc. The existing approaches (diesel engines, batteries, etc.) are a large factor in the ‘empty’ mass and volume of the vehicle, which means the amount of ...

The Romanian concept of active suspension with pneumatic actuators is in patent application OSIM-A/00368/28.05.2015 and was in PCT/EP2016/061515_23.05.2016 and is able to large static and dynamic car trim adjusting, assuring thus:
• ground clearance increasing on bad road to protect the passengers and the car;
• decreasing the ground clearance on speed road, to increase stability and cruise speed;
• increasing longitudinal and transverse stability by adherence increasing due to improved contact wheel ground
• increasing body stability and so the comfort but the same reducing turbulence round the car decreasing drag resistance and thus fuel consumption and pollution
• optimal positioning towards longitudinal and transverse axis, to reduce the turbulence round the car, especially under body, to decrease ...

PROBLEM/MOTIVE: In Cycling, the Cyclist faces two obstacles:
-there is dead-center at top of pedal-stroke, where Cyclist must apply huge force resulting in negligible torque and
-there is not even slight helping overlapping of pedaling power-periods (when Cyclist produces work), resulting that each single leg has to be so strong to move the bicycle alone.

SOLUTION/PROPOSAL:
In this Mechanism the two crank-arms are non-rigidly connected together via variable-transmission-ratio gears, with predefined variable phase-difference, in order to impressively resolve both problems.

Installing it on Bicycle, minimum phase-difference is decreased to much less than 180-degrees of classic Bicycle, resulting in avoiding dead-points of pedal-stroke, while -and this is the most important- LARGE OVERLAPPING of actually power-periods is achieved.

This is an idea that has been in the back of my mind for some time now, and this seems like the perfect opportunity to bring it to life. This is a device that will darken a small portion of a vehicle windscreen in order to block the sun from the drivers eyes. This works by installing a thin film of photochromic material on the inside of the windscreen, and an emitter in (or on) the dash of the vehicle. The emitter works by shining a low power ultra violet light onto two, independent axis controlled mirrors that redirect the UV light onto a specific position on the windshield. The photocromic material darkens with the presence of UV light, ...

Blackspot technology

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation 17% of all motor vehicle environmentally related crashes was caused by Glare or blindness from sunlight. Between 2005 and 2007 this accounted for more than 9000 crash accidents in US.

This invention seeks to reduce the risk of sun blindness in five steps.
1. Identify the angle of the sun relative to the vehicle
2. Identify the position of the drivers eyes relative to the Vehicle.
3. Using trigonometry to calculate the position of the sun on the windscreen, as viewed by the driver
4. Position a shading object in the line of sight to the sun, preventing the sun to enter the eyes of the driver
5. Continuously relocated ...

The scooter is designed to increase the comfort of movement without harming the environment and nature.

Its quiet and smooth ride will help you enjoy the ride.

Two front wheels increase driving stability. While cornering, he can lean a little to the side for safe maneuvering.

This scooter can be used to get around the city. Also, he will feel confident on a country road, on park paths and easy ...

Ground Based Transport chokes the atmosphere & heat-kills Earth’s life, by trillions of cuts and billions of exhausts.

Earth’s limited fossil fuel drives this Vicious-Cycle-System which, once exhausted, leaves no good way to Transport goods or people.

My heavy-payload pole-supported system ‘Transports’ humanity into a nature-friendly Virtuous-Cycle Paradigm. Track-top Solar powers my globally approved patent (US9320941B2) . Toroidal Wheel Drive (TWD), with prototypes proving the concept (see video).

TWDs:
… design enhances biodiversity & human lives, using a novel solar-green-free-energy Transportation system.
… strong traction creates energy-efficient autonomous heavy payload transit, at any XYZ angle. Energy to charge 120 cellphones lifts a 182 kg load to 68M. Not anti-gravity, but close.
… level-loads Peak-Energy demand, therefore likely the most ...
