* The automotive industry continues to look at new ways to meet tightening government regulations. Presently, the top half of a modern overhead cam engine is a busy, crowded place filled with valves, springs, seals, gaskets, bearings and more. It works but at the cost of complexity and it operates at less than optimal efficiency.

* Our innovative camless valve-train concept, Glide Valve Engine Technology (glidevalve.com) is a patented new head design to maximize the volumetric efficiency of any internal combustion engine. The novelty for Glide Valve Engine Technology is that it seals the combustion pressure with a non-invasive valve. In addition, it utilizes independent electronic software-driven actuators that can open the intake valve sooner and close the exhaust ...

Our cities are increasingly congested and polluted. The average London driving commuter spent over 9 days waiting in traffic last year, and the city broke its annual air pollution target by the end of January. But it doesn’t have to be like this: a new generation of electric micro vehicles that can move people quickly, efficiently, and cleanly is emerging.

Of these, electric bicycles have seen the strongest consistent growth in recent years with sales across Europe exploding from 0.1 million units in 2006 to over 2 million in 2017 worth €3.2bn, that’s an average growth rate of 28% per year for over a decade. Folding bikes, meanwhile, have been around for much longer. There is a growing consumer ...

In a move from rural to urban we are posed to be maxed out with our current transportation infrastructure for mass transit. Here is where the extended range and class 3 ebike start to be adapted for mass transit. It is a lattice that is connecting the rural parks to the urban cities. The lattice consists of paved park bike paths that are parallel to mass transit but for bikes , runners, walkers, or hikers. These ebikes blend in between these 2 environments seamlessly.

The extended range model is an ebike that is capable of doing 20-30 miles range at 28mph. This gives the commuter a comfortable range to go to work, then charge at work and commute back. ...

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 ...

The problem of the increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is one of the topics discussed almost daily because the effects on the climate are of daily discussion. It is time to move on to remedies. In practice, remedying the problem of excess CO2 with recapture, using devices installed directly in new-generation cars. If my idea comes to practical implementation, hundreds of millions of electric cars will take over CO2 recapture in the near future. The car will turn from pollution to cleanliness of the atmosphere. The direct capture technologies from the atmosphere are almost mature and in my project they must be distributed to the cars to act on a large scale. Once the task of CO2 ...

The proposed “Urban fly and ride taxi system” is composed by:

Flying modules, that are multicopters having propulsion pods, each with one or two (in tandem configuration) electric motors, each motor driving a single or multibladed rotor. They are equipped with battery and or fuel cell power packs, and a control unity being capable of flying in autonomous, programmable or fly by wire control modes.

Riding modules, that are multi wheeled ground vehicles with electric or hybrid propulsion, having central or inside wheels electric motors. They are equipped with battery and or a fuel cell power packs, and a control unity being capable of driving in road and cities, in autonomous, programmable, or in drive by wire control modes.

The problem statement chosen was to build a model that makes sure that the rules for the speed limit are followed in every road segment and thus reducing the possibility of accidents and ensures safer automobile systems.

Main motive for designing this model is to avoid accidents and alert the drivers about speed limit for safe travelling in every road segment. Most drivers are tempted to exceed the speed limit at one time or another. Speed has been identified as a key risk factor in road traffic injuries, influencing both the risk of a road crash as well as the severity of the injuries that result from crashes. Controlling vehicle speed can prevent crashes happening and can reduce the ...

Innovation
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 ...

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.

Urban Transportation is a very important matter in highly dense cities. Density creates challenges for urban transportation because of crowding and the expense of providing infrastructure in built-up areas. This is because most peoples who need transportation are the one who works on a regular basis. Now a day’s modern cities use different means of transportation and the highest tech ones use online ordering for transportation. But this has lots of problems and it does not entirely solve the urban transportation problem. This project solves the entire urban transportation problem in cities.

This project is about solving the transportation problem in cities by interconnecting everyone's calendar and schedule with transportation providers. Many studies have shown that modern peoples way ...
