We have designed and manufacture a conversion. It is a bolt on converting a bumper pull trailer into a gooseneck pull. No welding required. It is full wired for ease of installation. Meets all federal regulations. SAE J2638 was used in ...

NOVAlert™ IVS (Intelligent Vigilance Solutions) is a patent pending active automotive safety system embedded in the driver’s seat. It performs the monitoring and alerting of driver’s drowsiness and inattentiveness. Moreover, special countermeasures temporarily restore and sustain the driver’s alertness while suggesting nearest safe stop location. Proof of concept technologies, embedded in wrist watches and steering wheels, were scientifically validated. It is now migrating to a practical, novel, smart driver’s seat. Nothing to wear or grip.

Our mission and vision are to create the future by offering a seat-embedded multivariate sensing, data conditioning and communicating reference design together with machine learning analytics embedded silicon chip solution to enhance road safety challenges primarily for long haul and elderly drivers.

We bring to your attention the electric drive of the roadtrain semi-trailer axle.

The device is installed on the semi-trailer axle. Instead of standard brake discs, the star gears and 2 asynchronous motors are put, which make the axle rotate (forward or backwards) in case of wheel slip on icy roads, as well as on dirt roads during rains. At the same time, they will be successfully used in mountains during ascents and descents for dense road adherence and other conditions of the roadtrain operation, and also perform the role of a braking device. The system itself and the motors are powered through a converter from batteries, controlled through a controller that synchronizes the rotation of the axle with ...

Ocean plastic waste is as challenging as the land or city plastic waste management. Because of this plastic waste, many aquatic living organisms are in danger. Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans. It's equivalent to five grocery bags filled with plastic for every foot of coastline in the world. There have been many types of research done concerning this problem but only a few possible solutions has ever been proposed. But this design will be our solution that the world has been waiting for.

This project is about building a garbage collecting mechanism in oceans that are installed in every maritime transport to collect plastic garbage wherever they will go. Maritime transport ...

One of the major problems caused by sand storms or wind is the highway problem. Roads are covered by sands on regular basis blocking traffic. The cleanup is time-consuming, require many manual works and not fast enough. The main problem this project solves is the sand problem in highways of UAE. As seen in the figure the main problem is the sand pile up on edges of the highway and small amount of wind can push the sands in the road and the sand pile up and block traffic. This can be avoided using this mechanism. Operators can minimize the amount of sands on the edge of the highway easily and quickly on a regular basis. Since the edge ...

Autonomous vehicles require multiple optical sensors, such as cameras or LIDAR, in the car’s body on all sides. Today, such sensors are mostly used for parking assistance.

In automated driving, the accurate function of these sensors is required to ensure safe driving. Contaminants such as dirt, dust, organic material and different phases of water (ice, rain, snow, etc.) on the surface of the sensor yield blurry and inaccurate images, thus leading to erratic system performance.

This project is about building a cover mechanism for camera of a car that does not require cleaning and protect the lens of the camera from giving blur vision due to particles like dust, rain, snow and so on. This can be done using ...

An ambulance is a vehicle which can transport medical patients to treatment and in some instances will also provide out-of-hospital medical care to the patient. Ambulances are used to respond to medical emergencies by the emergency medical services.

For this purpose, they are generally equipped with flashing warning lights and sirens. They can rapidly transport paramedics and other responders to the scene, carry equipment for administering emergency care and transport patients to hospital or other definitive care. Most ambulances use a design based on vans or pick-up trucks. Others take the form of motorcycles, cars, buses, aircraft and boats.

The main problems facing city ambulance is road congestion. If the road is too crowded, the ambulance will be late ...

According to AAA’s Foundation for Traffic Safety, poorly secured loads are responsible for more than 25,000 crashes and approximately 90 fatalities in developed countries each year. And on top of that, there are all those nonfatal injuries to drivers behind you and damage to their vehicles. There are many ways to secure loads on pickup but none of them guarantee the safety and this project will guarantee the safety we need while driving loaded pickups.

This invention is a mechanism for pickup trucks to extend their trunk when carrying a long material or material which take higher surface area and carry more load without having the risk of instability in the vehicle under the capacity of the vehicle. This ...

Perpetual Motion Automotive Motor ( A "zero emission vehicle" )

In the years and decades to come oil will become exceedingly expensive as the oil was not grown for industrial use but rather harvested from earth's deposits. The following design system is a "draft accelerator" perpetual motion "Active" electric power plant using two types of pressure to then "continually" produce electricity for an electric automobile. The system uses hydraulic fluid ( silicone oil ) and pneumatic ( "air" ) pressure to motivate the power plant. It is important to understand the system does not burn the oil. The system replaces the air pressure automatically.The design cycles hydraulic pressure to produce electricity. It does not burn the oil. ...

Problem statement:
Brake failure in vehicles is serious issue and it is classified as ‘ASIL D’ hazardous in automotive. The common reason for brake failure is wearing of brake pad.

Solution:
-->Current brake pad wear indication technique has a wire loop inside the abrasive material. This wire loop is connected to the control unit of the vehicle. When the brake pad wears, wire loop get open circuited and it is detected by the control unit of the vehicle. Thus the brake pad wear indication is provided to the vehicle user.
-->With the wire loop technique, the vehicle user can be alerted with certain percent of abrasive material remaining in the brake pad and need to be replaced. This has ...
