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 ...

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. ...

The tactical smart gyroballcam grenade, or TSGBCG for short, has 2 camera sensors located on each opposing side of the gyroscope which include capabilities of infrared light, ultra violet and night vision incorporating zoomable abilities. TSGBCG manafactures 3 various models for varied situations: smoke dispersement grenade, a detonation grenade and gas dispersement grenade.

TSGBCGs use sensored detonation abilities or disbursement capabilities. TSGBCG is loaded onto a smart docking/charging holster on your hip or thigh. Hip/thigh charging docking station clips around thigh/hip with 3 adjustable comfort straps. Hip/thigh docking station plugs into an outlet to regain charge/power. Hip/thigh docking station can load charge 4/6 TSGBCGs. Once emptied of disbursement agents TSGBCGs can be refilled via leg docking station or on ...

A pillow embedded with PMMA medical grade optical fibers by a CNC machine I invented back in 1997. I coated the surface of the fabric with a thin film of silicon forming a flexible substrate underneath the pillow case so that a grid of light is formed over the surface. I use an Opti-Coupler I invented last year that responds to WIFI and Bluetooth commands from smart phones to generate light frequencies from IR to UV and pulse UV at 40 Hz through the fibers using a AA size 3.7 VDC Lithium Ion battery. You cannot feel or see any indication of any tech in the pillow until activated. The radiation helps to cure Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, and some ...

Radio receivers are part of our day to day life. These are the electronic devices which are receptors of radio waves and translate the obtained information in an acceptable form. They are utilized in combination with antenna. The main purpose of antenna is to convert radio waves into electrical form and required information is extracted by receivers. Filters are also necessary in receivers which are used for separating the radio frequency signals from other signals picked up antenna and electronic amplifier is used to raise power of signal for further processing and finally desired information is recovered using demodulation process. FM radio is one of the most common application. Although there are number of wide range receivers available in ...

Enhanced EAS system is an enhanced EAS box with all controls on screen or in build in browser circuit with enhanced cap capability and extra software setup tools.The main feature of my design is in addition to the existing <Preamble>ZCZC-ORG-EEE-PSSCCC+TTTT-JJJHHMM-LLLLLLLL- after which the YEAR-CALLSIGN- be added then existing <preemble>ZCZC-NNNN then -VERIFURL-CHECKSUMS- is added.The purpose of adding the year is to ensure a precise and valid date and originating call sign to find out who originated the alert. The URL is to link to a web page that has a link that the originator can add to for validating an alert by adding links to information then a check sum and to facilitate verifying alerts DM-OPEN would be re-enabled for ...

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 ...

This project is about an automated sediment collection for a dam that is one of the biggest challenges of hydropower enegineering. The main problems that are shown on a dam concerning sediment are that it is very difficult to manage sediments once they are at a low level. This is because sediments have high weight and they are bulky to manage. The first problem is how do you remove them in the first place. This can be solved by installing an artificial bed in the bed of the underwater ground which is connected to a cable that is attached to an automated crane. When a sensor detects weight change it automatically starts and the strings attached to a pully ...

Although I currently do not own an SUV, I continue to see people opening their lift-gates and having to move back so that it does not hit them in the chin when it opens or on the head when it closes. The way typical lift-gates open and close also makes it difficult to operate when a vehicle is parked close behind. My idea is to make a dual-hinged lift-gate whereby the bottom half of the lift-gate remains vertical while the upper half opens normally (see attached example). When someone opens the lift-gate it will essentially move straight up and not out. The mechanism might be a little bit complicated, but not ...

Renewable energy solutions come with their own problems, and managing the trade-offs will determine the success of a technology. Especially, with a desire to maintain and expand our modern standards of living. The diffuse, intermittent, and unpredictable nature of wind and solar energy has led to research and development in how to store the electrical energy generated. However, a partial solution to the intermittent nature of wind and solar energy is to transition our more modern refrigeration systems back to ice boxes.

Storing electrical energy, in cars or wall batteries, could be a partial solution to the intermittent and unpredictable nature of wind and solar energy. The battery storage solution comes with its own set of problems, to include ...
