Automotive/​Transportation

The idea of the new engine concept is to replace the crankshaft by gear racks that move linearly and drive the gear wheels (sprockets) creating torque.

The engine can contain from 1 to 2 or 4 units.

I have invented an electrical air conditioner which is light in weight and features high speed cooling and the lowest maintenance cost at all time. The cooling in this project is produced by thermoelectrical couple.

My idea aims to add greater safety factor to automotive vehicles by addressing the human side of the driving using the below approach:

Detect unruly or impulsive behavior through measurable responses such as constant abnormal acceleration/braking, rapid steering movements, continual over-speeding beyond a set safe speed, etc.

Measures to reduce collisions, injuries, death and the resulting cost to society and environment.

Require vehicle motion data and visual recording systems in all new vehicles to provide information about travel and driver behavior before and during vehicular collisions.

The revolutionary and yet simple design of the Ettridge Carbon Brush Commutator uses proven low carbon brush technology to achieve the same results as an electronic controller for a Stepper or Synchronized electric motor or generator.

Home automation is building automation for a home, called a smart home. A home automation system will monitor or control home attributes such as lighting, climate, entertainment systems, and appliances. It may also include home security such as access control and alarm systems.

In recent years, aluminum alloys have become the dominant material for body-in-white (BiW) and battery enclosures (“BE”) in electric vehicles (“EV”) due to their low density. Aluminum BiW and BE, or other platform parts, typically provide weight savings of ~40% compared to equivalent commercially-used steels.

High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Systems

Our design idea solves the problems of cheating in High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) carpool lanes. HOV is a traffic management strategy experiencing a large, planned expansion. HOVs are used globally to reduce traffic congestion and promote public transportation use for encouraging ride-sharing.

The NerraTrac continuously variable transmission (CVT) utilizes a traction drive in a traction fluid (high viscosity lubricant) that ‘solidifies’ momentarily between two hardened metal surfaces under high contact pressure, thus providing a traction force. It employs the same elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication principle used by all current automotive CVT transmissions.
