The future transport system globally has to be MUCH more efficient and electric. RUF offers a new combination of rail and car technology developed in Denmark with Government support.

It can reduce air resistance by close platooning on a special triangular monorail by a factor of more than 3. It can reduce rolling resistance by a factor of more than 3 because of the patented drive system and the triangular monorail.

The vehicles are powered from the monorail, so batteries only need to be small in order to drive from a monorail exit to your destination. On the monorail the vehicles are self driving in a VERY safe way, so that you can relax and work/sleep/enjoy the view while ...

As coastal cities and communities continue to grow, the demand for physical, earth-fast real estate has increased. In many areas, the ability to meet the demand is strained due to consistent flooding. The creation of new, buildable land can also lead to the infilling of coastal wetlands and habitat destruction. Moreover, the demand for where parking is needed may change for emergencies, certain seasons, and special events.

The Floating Parking Barge for Vehicles provides increased parking capacity for a particular area, and can be moved under its own power or by tugboat. More importantly, the invention will also be utilized in various emergency applications, where land-based parking is unavailable or unfeasible. This is especially true when delivering aid after ...

Video Helper System has several use options, namely:

During the movement of the autocamper, the high design of its van disrupts the visibility of the situation in front of it, for this, the function of a “transparent” car becomes possible by using the front camera mounted on it, i.e. a vehicle in motion from behind will see the road situation in front of the car camper on the van screen, thus determining the possibility of a safe maneuver. This function can be enabled not only during a day, but also at night by the means of the camera's infrared illumination.

When autocamper stops at a traffic light or railway-crossing, as well as at a temporary parking lot, it is ...

The transportation sector accounts for about 30% of total United States energy needs and 70% of petroleum consumption. The average U.S. household spends nearly one-fifth of its total family expenditures on transportation, making it the most expensive spending category after housing. Global OEM’s produced approximately 100 million motor vehicles in 2019. Today, less than 3 % of all vehicles manufactured are electric battery powered. In other words, there is plenty of room and need for an improved internal combustion engine. GlideValve Engine Technology is the answer.

Industry experts say the best solution for the future of the four stroke internal combustion engine will be to have a fully flexible computer-aided engine control unit, which could vary lift and duration ...

A near frictionless electromagnetic vehicle braking system is described that includes a solenoid axial single-circuit direct current (DC) electro-permanent magnet configuration in the shape of a ring, controlled via an activator/regulator that interprets pressure applied to a vehicle’s brake pedal mechanism, and powered by an alternator/transformer device in conjunction with the vehicle’s battery.

When not in use, the electro-permanent magnet firmly holds the rotor “clamped” in place with its magnetic field, creating the “park” position. But when activated, the electrical charge travels through the spooled magnet wire initiated by the activator/regulator (which interprets the signals from the foot brake mechanism), and sends an appropriate electrical charge from the vehicle’s battery into the electro-permanent magnet, interacting with the magnetic core ...

There has been a lot of news regarding the banning of the sale of internal combustion engine powered automobiles, in favour of electric motor powered automobiles. What has not been appreciated is even if they did ban the sale of ICE powered automobiles it would take years for the electric powered automobiles numbers to affect the total numbers of automobiles in use. Presently there are 1.42 billion cars in operation worldwide, including 1.6 billion passenger’s cars and 363 million commercial vehicles. In 2018, more than 70 million cars, and around 25 million commercial cars were produced worldwide, while around 2.2 million passenger electric car sales.

My idea is to convert existing ICE cars into hybrids, to run on electric ...

Improve the power to weight ratio, efficiency and increase the life of motor and alternator is of paramount importance in design. In order to do that; I have successfully developed a new concept electric machine that provides up to 50% improvement in power to weight ratio and efficiency, after spending several years to research. Flexidrive (Electric motor) that will give torque on demand while accelerating and power on demand while cruising and Electric load on demand while regenerative breaking.

In this concept one armature is inside the stator as in normal motor but another armature is on outside the stator. Stator winding is common for both armature windings. Inside armature act as alternator and outside armature act as motor ...

The use of CNG as a fuel in locomotives offers the opportunity to reduce emissions such as particular matter (PM) in 97%, as well as a dramatic reduction in the cost of fuel and the consumption of a plentiful resources as is natural gas in the United States.

CNGmotive Inc. developed the technology to safely store >50x the typical CNG carried on a truck and the the filling technology Chillfill® that allows the tender to be filled in 10 minutes or less, similar to the speed of diesel.

The CNGmotive tenders are designed to transport compressed natural gas (CNG) for use in supplying energy alternate fuel locomotives to which it is coupled. Compressed natural gas is stored in impact ...

Hydrostatic Bicycle Executive Summary

Hydro Bike is a breakthrough in the field of bicycle transmission. It presents the next evolution in bicycle drive. Comparing traditional bicycles to Hydro Bike is like comparing a car’s old mechanical shifting gearbox to the ®Tiptronic - Infinite variable gearbox in use today.

Two factors limit a bicycle rider today: human power and outdated technology. Hydro Bike provides an ®Hydrostatic Bike overcomes the human limitation and offer up-to-date technologies offering an Infinite Variable, Constant Horse Power drive in a variety of manually operated wheeled vehicles. The technology applies to additional various wheelers: Tricycles, Manually operated buses (such as those used in parks and zoos) and even Bicycle Trainers. Like the automotive counterpart various transmissions ...

LED lighting technology is already prevalent in the Automotive Industry, taking on increasingly prominent aesthetic design as well as safety roles. Significantly increased lighting output, required to meet tightening insurance industry requirements, coupled with a proliferation of illuminated lamp features has already led to a top Tier-1 Lighting supplier executive to proclaim “Lamp weight has gone up exponentially!” during a recent interview. Current plastic-based lamp housing technology is at the limit of its capabilities, which augurs poorly for the integration of the myriad of sensors required for Automated Vehicles (AVs) given the considerably heat generated by all these devises.

Weight, Size and Cost continue to increase while OEMs require significantly lighter, more compact, cost-effective solutions in order to meet ...
