This educational video describes how a car transmission works in modern vehicles. In mechanical engineering, a transmission is a mechanical device that uses gears to improve mechanical efficiency, employing the ancient concept of the lever. Its a machine that requires a power source and a power transmission system, which provides controlled application of the power, automatically or manually. Often the term "transmission" refers simply to the gearbox that uses gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque conversions from a rotating power source to some other kind of mechanism, such as a differential, which would apply that power to the wheels.

The vehicle mounted direct attack guided rocket system is a great idea for the US military and will be helpful in future conflicts. The Direct Attack Guided Rocket (DAGR) is a weapons system under development by Lockheed Martin. The program goal is to provide a low cost 2.75 inch (70 mm) precision guided rocket which is compatible with existing Hellfire II systems and launchers in service. The system will use components from the existing Hydra 70 rocket, but differs from other upgrades to the Hydra 70 such as APKWS and LOGIR in that it is designed to be plug-and-play compatible with the Hellfire missile and use the M299 Hellfire launcher, increasing the load-out by up to four times. DAGR also offers a lock-on before launch capability that is not compatible with the electronics in exi...
This is a 1998 Ford Explorer Sport converted into a hydrogen hybrid by Alex Rivera and how2savefuel.com. Horsepower and torque increased significantly after the conversion - The truck accelerates much more quickly without the engine laboring nearly as much as it used to! Highway MPG improved by 56%, city MPG improved by 35%. The system produces hydrogen ON-DEMAND and it is immediately used by the engine - Hydrogen is NOT stored, so there is no risk of fire or explosion (in the case of a car accident). I'm saving more money at the gas pump than I ever thought possible and I didn't have to go and buy a hybrid to do it! Convert the vehicle you ALREADY own! ANY combustion engine! This is an UNPAID testimonial - I was so impressed with this system, I made this video as a "Thank You!" for Alex ...
The X-Net® system can fully arrest a range of vehicles using a unique spiked net design. The non-lethal system is man portable, can be deployed in a matter of seconds and causes minimal damage to target vehicles. TruX-Net™ is being developed to arrest a range of heavy vehicles weighing in excess of 10,000Kg. X-Tend™ is a prototype remote deployment solution that rapidly launches the X-Net®/TruX-Net™ and increases operator safety.
The intent of this video is to familiarize you with wheeled vehicle suspension systems. References are made to several types of vehicles, you may or may not work on all of these. For detailed descriptions and explanations consult each vehicles technical manual.
Here is an install we did on my 6.7 diesel. The total wiring cost was about $20. This went pretty quick without any problems and is pretty loud. If you have any questions about the install, feel free to ask. Thanks for watching! Make sure to subscribe and give a like!

Intelligent Transportation Systems are reshaping the way we thinking about transportation. Vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure, and vehicle-to-pedestrian technologies are improving the safety, mobility, and capacity of our existing infrastructure while finding ways to do it cheaper than ever before. In the video, you will see how some of these current technologies are being used and how they may be implemented in the future to improve your commute and safety while driving. This video was created and produced by Burns & McDonnell and the USDOT for the Colorado DOT.
I'm working on a new vehicle debugger system, with chassis stress visualization, this allows me to check for weak&faulty links throughout the vehicle.
