REGENERATIVE BRAKING SYSTEM: The system will generate electrical energy while the wheel is about to stop when applying brakes. The model comprises a moving-wheel arrangement with induction braking system that creates regeneration of electrical energy to charge the battery again in order to save energy about 20%.

INDUCTION BRAKING: An alternate electomagnetic braking arrangement to stop the vehicle without wear 'n' tear of shoe brakes. It can be used by the industries to stop machines using switch brakes.

ANTI-LOCK SENSOTRONIC BRAKING SYSTEM: The concept behind this project is to demonstrate the wheel braking by electronic system with change in brake's timing using simple shoe brake.

PROPELLER BASED FORMULA CAR: A 2.5 CC or 3.2 CC diesel engine working on the mixed blend of Kerosene, Ether Solvent and Castor Oil with manual start and will rotate the propeller blade in front of car. The air pressure provides the power to run this formula car . An RF remote control unit can be used to provide direction on either side.

DIESEL ENGINE BASED CLUTCH-CONTROLLED CAR: A 2.5 CC or 3.2 CC diesel engine work on the mix blend of Kerosene, Ether Solvent and Castor Oil with manual start will rotate provides the power to run this Car . A clutch arrangement operates on RF link will control the whole assembly for speed and direction on either side.

DIESEL ENGINE LOCOMOTIVE MODEL: A 2.5 CC or 3.2 CC diesel engine working on the mixed blend of Kerosene, Ether Solvent and Castor Oil with manual start will rotate the gears assembly that provides the power to run this locomotive engine. The whole structure can be placed on rail tracks.

PROPELLER/MOTORISED MONORAIL: This simple propeller based vehicle will run on the principle of air-propelled ion. The speed of vehicle is directly propotional to the speed of propeller blades.

PNEUMATIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM: An age-old technique can be used again to transport the low-weight material from one place to another in industries.

HYDRAULIC BRAKES: A same mechanical system that uses fluid as pressure to move the brake shoes in moving wheels for braking systems.

HYBRID CAR - ENGINE AND DC MOTOR OPERATED DUAL POWER CAR: A 2.5 CC or 3.2 CC diesel engine working on the mixed blend of Kerosene, Ether Solvent and Castor Oil with manual start will rotate the propeller blade in front of car and the air pressure provides the power to run this Formula Car. The solar cells on the top provide additional power to charge battery and it will also run the car to save fuel. An RF remote control unit can be used to provide direction on either side.

WIRELESS TYRE PRESSURE GAUGE: The microcontroller-based project sends data from tube/tyre rim to the dash board for the pressure of each tube. One can read the outputted values at the attached LCD on the project.

DRIVER-LESS CAR: The three wheeler car that senses the path at its own (or follow black line at the surface). It will aply brakes in case someone comes in front of it or changes the path left or right as per the requirement.

HYDRAULIC BRAKING SYSTEM FOR CAR/INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION : The paddle-operated or IR-sensor-operated hydraulic braking system with piston and oil chamber connected to a motorized rotating wheel.

STEERING CONROLLED HEADLIGHT: The four wheeler usually finds difficulty to drive in hills specially at sharp turns. This model will help to change the focus of headlight as the steering moves on either direction.

ENGINE/MOTOR VIBRATION CHECKER: The microcontroller based setup reads the vibration of engine or motor. This helps to tune the engine to get maximum efficiency with fuel savings.

IR AUTO BRAKING: A simple auto braking in material handling robot that stops automatically when the obstacle comes in between. It creates a switch, induction or paddle brake to apply for stopping the vehicle.

AUTOMATIC SEAT BELT: An innovative idea to automate the seat belt locking system using motor with parallel gear arrangement along with timer circuit. The arrangement itself is attached inside the car to provide the facility.

ACTUAL CAR LIFTING JACK - A MOTORISED JACK: It actually lifts the car using its own car battery as power source.

ELECTROMAGNETIC SHOCK ABSORBER: A modified shock absorber that activates automatically when it senses the pothholes on the road. It comprises road sensors that provide instant response to act while driving.

STEERING BY WIRE: A DC geared motorized arrangement to replace existing steering system by switch arrangement.

HYDRAULIC/COMPRESSED AIR BASED LIFTING JACK: An air engine provides pressure to uplift the jack comprising of piston filled with oil.

HOVER CRAFT USING ENGINE: A 2.5 CC or 3.2 CC diesel engine working on the mixed blend of Kerosene, Ether Solvent and Castor Oil with manual start will rotate the propeller blade and the air pressure provides the power to run the Hover Craft. An RF remote control unit can be used to provide direction on either side.

AIR PROPELLED MOTOR BOAT: A DC motor operated boat operates on propeller blade and the air pressure provides the power to run the boat. An RF remote control unit can be used to provide direction on either side.

AMPHIBEAN ROBOTIC CAR: The air-propelled or water-propelled boat-cum-car concept that runs on water and land both. The RF modules can be placed to control the same remotely.

MICROCONTROLLER AT-89C51 BASED AUTO GEAR SHIFTING SYSTEM: The circuit shows the demo of auto shifting of gears using stepper motor with the change in speed of vehicle. One can change the speed of DC motor as actual vehicle running wheel.

MICROCONTROLLER AT-89C51 BASED AUTO SPEED LIMITER WITH AUTO BRAKING: The project is to read the RPM of a automobile and according to that it limits the speed as "Speed Governor". One can change the speed with variable control.

DIGITAL AUTO SPEED LIMITER: For limiting the automobile's speed if a school or hospital comes in its way.

ELECTROMECHANICAL BRAKE : A moving wheel with permanent magnets will change the flux at the outer ring. The electromagnets can produce electrical energy to charge battery or can be used to make brake on that wheel.

SOLAR TRICYCLE FOR KIDS: It runs on DC motor placed under the seat with chain drive. The mains-operated charger with solar-power-charging option is an added attraction of this model.

SOLAR TOY CAR: The solar panel charges the battery. From this rechargeable battery a DC geared motor drives the mini toy car. RF remote operation for steering control is also an optional attachment.

COLLAPSIBLE STEERING MECHANISM: The model shows the basics of steering system with collapsible mechanism. The project consist of two front wheels with a steering system and an attachment for collapsible parts in case of frontal accident.

HYBRID MOTORBIKE: The ordinary bike can be converted into hybrid vehicle as the bike battery will provide power as alternative source when it gets fully charged.

FOUR WHEEL STEERING SYSTEM: The driving on the hills will get more easy with this mechanism.

CONTINUOUS VARIABLE TRANSMISSION: A new technique to run a vehicle without using clutch to change the speed in continuous mode.

ELECTROMAGNETIC BRAKE USING BRAKE SHOE: The electromaganet will expand the brake shoes to activate the braking machanism. More the current, easy to (apply) brakes.
