HUD Helmet Technology on the Horizon

On February 9, 1960 Charles Lombard and Herman Roth were granted a patent for a protective helmet that “utilized an energy-absorbing substantially nonresilient material…which deforms under impact to dissipate impact energy.” A veritable revolution soon followed in the protective quality of helmets that just a few decades earlier were often no more than leather skullcaps marketed to keep dust out of a rider’s hair. .The effectiveness of motorcycle crash helmets was transformed and standards set that remain relevant to this day.

Now, 53 years later, a handful of companies are looking to extend the purpose of a motorcycle helmet beyond mere protection, incorporating new technologies that turn a lid into a dashboard, cell phone, GPS, rear-view camera, music player and more. Reevu, Skully and Nuviz are three separate enterprises that have unveiled technologically-decked helmets or helmet accessories with some, all or more of the features mentioned above. Are we looking at revolution in helmet technology, or is this simply an instance of gadget overload?

Tubeless Tyre Technology

Tubeless Tyre(Br) or Tubeless Tire(Am)

Wheels and Tyres! The first thing which comes to our mind is the old Indian bullockcarts wheel, which never fails in its lifetime and is made If bands of metal that are fitted around wooden wheels in order to prevent wear and tear.

Tyres

But after the introduction of engine driven vehicles, Tubed Tyres have become the norm.Tube tyres, are basically made up of natural rubber and fabric along with other compound chemicals. They also consist of a tread for traction and body support of the vehicle.The vast majority of tires are pneumatic(pressurized-air) ones with a halogenated butyl rubber tube.

Traditional designs of pneumatic tyres required a separate inner tube which could fail because of incorrect tyre fitment or friction between the tyre wall and inner tube(due to lack of pressurized-air) generating excess heat causing a blowout of air.

Tube tyres
In tube type tyres, the air is enclosed inside a tube, and the tube has the valve fitted to it. If an object pierces the tyre,it can cause the tube to burst just like a balloon or it makes a hole in the tube through which air comes out. As this happens, the tube gets smaller

Aluminum Cars

Multiple vehicle manufacturers incorporate aluminum into their process, sometimes only superficially for exterior parts and panels, while others use it more comprehensively both for the exterior and the internal structure.

The reason for aluminum being such a widely used material in the manufacturing industry is due to a few contributing factors; such as its lightweight. The less weight there is attached to a vehicle, the more efficiently it is able to accelerate, and the more fuel efficient it will be as it then requires less energy for the same performance.

Aluminum is corrosion resistant, meaning it will weather the elements better. Everyone who has ever owned a car will understand what a huge relief that would be in terms of car maintenance. Aluminum is also very sustainable from a recycling point of view, saving on energy and resources, recycling are a great idea to help promote sustainability and create a better environment for living in. Being rather pliable, aluminum is also easily shaped and formed to various shapes. This makes it great in the manufacturing industry.

For a metal with such a light weight, aluminum is fantastically resilient due to its high torsional rigidity, or resistance to twisting which for obvious reasons makes

Transmission Control Solenoid: Working Principle and Function

Most cars today use an automatic transmission system, which makes the ‘Control Solenoid’ one of the most important components in it. Failure in the solenoid directly affects the running of the vehicle. This article explains the working and functioning of a modern-day transmission control solenoid.
Transmission control solenoids are found in vehicles or transmission units with automatic or electrically controlled transmission systems for shifting speeds. It is found in most modern-day vehicles, because of its accuracy and consistency in functioning.

The solenoid enables smooth shifting of gears to transmit appropriate speed and torque from the engine to the wheels. A defective solenoid may cause problems like shifting into the wrong gear, or not shifting at all. It directly affects the engine performance, as the load taken by it is dependent on the transmission module of the vehicle.

Basic Structure of a Transmission Control Solenoid

A transmission control solenoid is located in the valve body in the ‘transmission control unit (TCU) of a system. It can be seen after removing the transmission pan attached to the valve body. Generally, multiple solenoids are used in a system, and each has color-coded wires for ease of identification and replacement.
