The Bluetooth-enabled tire gauge system will keep a constant eye on tire pressure and send and alert if the pressure becomes too low. Tire sensors will be installed in place of the tires' usual air valve caps, where each one will receive a separate identifier that will provide an accurate pressure reading for its tire. An alert will be sent to the user's smartphone or the in-car system if pressure levels fall too low, and the system can be set up to monitor up to 20 cars from one app...

The world's first unstealable bike can be designed around the idea of building the lock into the bike, for example in the frame. The frame's lower tube can separate and open outward, forming a pair of arms that extend enough to be placed around a solid object like a pole or bike rack. The bike's seat (with the post attached) will then be removed and inserted through the open ends of the arms to form the lock. The integrated lock will act as a powerful theft-deterrent, since breaking...

The idea is to take smartphone technology on the road with a new smart bike concept, which will even feature a rear view camera. The technology will be centered around a smartphone that will attach to the handlebars with a magnetic mount. The phone will control the bike's components, which will include a WiFi/Bluetooth module and four laser projectors that will delineate a bike lane, and also display the real-time video stream from the camera mounted on the rear of bike.

A newly developed method of ensuring paint layers have been properly applied could help prevent rust as well as diagnose the early signs of skin cancer. The system will emit a beam of terahertz-frequency radiation into the paint, where it will penetrate the paint layers without causing damage. As the beam moves through the layers, it will be reflected back at different intensities of light, which will reveal the thickness of the paint layers and allow the technician to determine if...

The new bike lock will help discourage bike theft by disengaging the bike's steering system, making it a bit harder for thieves to 'snip, grab and ride.' The system will be integrated into the bike's stem, where it will be locked or locked by a key. The system will be securely fastened for riding, but a simple turn of a key will disconnect the handlebar stem from the fork--making it impossible for anyone to steer the bike. In addition to deterring thieves, the handlebar...

I suggest using magnets to guide self-driving cars on the road, which I believe will overcome some of the limitations of GPS and cameras. GPS and cameras can have difficulty performing in some conditions, such as fog or tunnels. In contrast, the magnet system will not require visibility or a line of sight to operate. The magnetic track adds other benefits as well, such as allowing the lanes to be narrowed and preventing accidental plowing of snow-covering objects.

The air purifier bike concept will let riders clean the air as they ride by filtering out pollutants and creating oxygen. The concept bike will be equipped with an air filter between the handle bars that will screen pollutants and dust and an oxygen-producing "photosynthesis system" that will include a water tank, electric motor and a battery. As the bike is being ridden, air will be forced through the filter and cleaned, allowing fresh air to flow onto the cyclist. The photosynthesis...

The multi-modal vehicle concept drone can fly, swim and hop through various terrains by shedding and transforming parts of itself as needed. The transforming drone will travel by land, sea and air either under the control of a remote operator or semi-autonomously. As it adjusts itself to the conditions, the wings will become fins for underwater travel, for example, and then swapped for wheels for on-land travel. Currently, carrying out a drone mission on such different terrains...

The idea is to create a system that will let users find open parking spots, and spots about to be open, with their smartphones - and doesn't require hardware to be installed in existing infrastructure. The app will work based on crowd sourced data collected by mobile devices. By monitoring the location and movements of the user, the software will be able to determine when a person has parked and gotten out of their car, as well as when they are approaching their car and drive away. This...

The Night View Assist will identify humans as well as an impressive array of road-wandering animals. Although in-car night-vision systems were developed 13 years ago, they have been limited to identifying only pedestrians. This is because the wide range of animal sizes and shapes makes it much harder to develop a system able to pick them out. To address this problem, the Night View Assist will be developed with a thermal infrared camera that will scan for warm-blooded animals outside of...
