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?
“For riders, awareness is crucial.” So says Marcus Weller, Ph.D, the
In addition, in this conference, BMW will launch two innovative products for motorcycles, they are intelligent laser headlight (BMW Motorrad Concept Laserlight) for a motorcycle helmet and BMW Connect with Head-Up Display System (BMW Motorrad Vision Headup Display).
For motorcycles, the importance of lighting is self-evident compared to cars. Over the years, BMW is equipped with its motorcycle products include Adaptive Headlights, LED daytime running lights and dynamic brake lights and other equipment, while the laser headlight design is based on the BMW Group’s Automotive Division based build. Previously laser headlight technology has been used in the new 7 Series and i8 are now mounted on the BMW K1600 GTL concept car, which is not only capable of emitting high-luminance white shade, and illumination optical path is to reach 600 meters, is Traditional headlight twice.
“HUD helmet,” the introduction of road information can always be within view knight locomotive display can more concentrate on road traffic. All information displayed can be freely programmed; Ideally, at any point in time, only the current driving situation and helpful information. Display contains security-related information, such as data associated with the technical state of the motorcycle tire pressure, oil level and fuel level, speed, and the
The Ebike with the Li-ion electric bike conversion kit with bicycle hub motor is aimed at converting your old bike into a better, far more durable but most importantly, a highly environment friendly electric bicycle.
This is a means to upgrade from the old bikes to a newer and technologically superior bicycle hub motor that is a great deal more efficient than an ordinary bike. Besides this, an Ebike is preferred by most as besides being a swifter bike, it minimizes environmental pollution due to the toxic fumes that are given out by vehicles. Apart from eliminating toxic vehicular fumes, the Ebike is known for the simplistic measure by which it can be set up with a simple tool kit such that an ordinary everyday bike turns into an environment friendly Li ion electric bike. As an added benefit, not only do the Ebikes become faster means of transport, but they are also lightweight, with rainproof body to prevent rust, and have a high torque. The Li ion batteries are durable to further lessen pollution.
This is a healthier option than the pollution causing bikes. The installation is a simplified process. Due to low moment of inertia, high torque and
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.
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.
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
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
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.
