There are two ongoing revolutions in modern automotive industry. The first is the development of autonomous vehicles which is leading to greatly improved safety, traffic economy, environment and passenger comfort. The global autonomous vehicle market is estimated to be $54.23 billion in 2019, and is projected to achieve $556.67 billion by 2026. The second is the development of green propulsion systems, envisaging improving fuel efficiency. For example, in the US, the average on-road fuel economy of new cars and light trucks is expected to be 36-37 miles per gallon (mpg) by 2025. In comparison, the average of today’s on-road fleet is 21 mpg. The intersection of the autonomous vehicles and green propulsion systems is the future trend. However, there ...
Contemporary gasoline-powered vehicles use On-Board Diagnostics 2 (OBD2) to determine whether a vehicle is within emission standards. This is achieved by monitored certain parameters; e.g., catalytic converter operation, exhaust gas recirculation operation, etc. Rationality testing on sensors is also done; e.g., whether engine coolant temperature readings make sense. OBD2 is incapable of finding certain problems. For example, on a two-bank engine with oxygen sensors on each bank and a defective O ring on an injector OBD2 may not report problems on that bank as long as it can adjust its air/fuel mixture to 14.7/1. The driver may notice a rough engine and abnormal fuel consumption. The problem may be seen by connecting a scan tool to the engine and ...
HOW THE ENTRY WORKS
The large vehicle passing maneuver assistance device (LVPMAD) is designed to assist motorists to safely pass a large vehicle. The LVPMAD processors would track the speed of the large vehicle, location and speed of the passing vehicle. Inclinometer would determine road grade (which drastically affects braking distance), and decelerometer would determine braking characteristics based on truck weight and load. LVPMAD would also collect GPS information. All sensors, LED warning lights and road scanning cameras are contained in a license plate-sized device affixed to the front of the large vehicle in the center.
The LVPMAD is activated when the device detects a passing vehicle. A “X” pattern warning, (See accompanying ILLUSTRATION and short video) visible ...
Ever since the Stage Coach, boxes on wheels were designed to carry freight and passengers. Newer, sleeker and more comfortable boxes kept the same basic design concept.
With the advent of self balancing vehicles, it is no longer necessary to use two rails to keep the vehicles upright.
Rail transit can survive by leasing the right of way so anyone can access the track with a single wheeled vehicle using one track thereby doubling the rail capacity instantly and using GPS to get freight and or passengers to their destination while keeping a safe distance from other vehicles using the same right of way.
This is an attractive, affordable ‘human-amplifier’ in the form of a compact electric bicycle. It is disruptively innovative in ALL the key areas: size, weight, cost, ease of use and appeal. It has a new folding system that puts the clear, spoke-less wheels together to form a single ‘wheel’ with a telescopic handle to roll like most modern luggage.
Portable, the size and weight of carry-on luggage, it can easily become a ‘human-amplifier’
Riding it 'amplifies' walking effort by three to six times.
It can shrink the 30 minutes’ walk from the station to home, into an easy 7 minute 'glide' home and speeds up hills effortlessly. You can roll the device into your home where it ...
There is a lot of need for green clean and cheap fuels in the world. The main source of energy for 150 years has been fossil fuels. However, the world is running out of this source rapidly and there are detrimental effects of its use e.g. pollution and economic impact.
Hydrogen fuel cell cars are one of the newest developments in progress today Hydrogen is a renewable source without hazardous by-products. More importantly, hydrogen is a source regenerating fuel; it can be produced from water, intermediately stored, and finally used in either internal combustion engines or fuel cells to turn back to water. It is believed that if hydrogen solar cars are successfully developed and deployed; it will represent ...
“GoldDrive” is an infinitely variable, bi-directional drive consisting of hydraulic fixed displacement pumps and motors. As a matter of fact “GoldDrive” is the hydraulic equivalent of the mechanical differential. The idea behind the development of “GoldDrive” is to overcome the limitation of starting torque. According to the traditional equation, torque is equal to power over speed and as a result, we need an infinite amount of torque to start a load at zero output speed. The solution is Slippage, slippage of electrical, mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic transmissions. “GoldDrive” enables us to achieve full torque at zero output speed.
Principles of operation:
Basically, GoldDrive consist of one hydraulic motor with fixed body running CW and on its output shaft ...
Title: Electric Roads and Electric Charging Mobile Pods for continuous charging for EV’s
Objective: To help accelerate sustainable transportation by building an infrastructure for continuous on road charging for all EV’s.
The human crave for technological development is a never-ending process and so does the pollution. So, being an intelligent species on the planet we can at least adopt technologies which will help reduce the effect of pollution on the planet to a certain extent.
There is a tremendous amount of efforts being taken for developing Electric Vehicles. However, one of the biggest challenges is to turn people’s mind to buy EV’s, because of limited mile range (250-350) and longer charging time (50-70 min) per one full ...
An Invention to Develop the Installation of a Strong Night-Light System Inside the Body of the Car Far from the Front
I’m from Egypt at Africa. I have two inventions implemented to develop the night lighting system, patents No, 26771 year 2011 (Extra Spotlights through Xenon, Laser or LED Bulb) and patent No, 29238 year 2014 (A device that provides powerful lighting for all types of vehicles using lights tubes without dazzled) from the Academy of Scientific Research in Cairo Egypt.
