This Project report details the design and development of a motorized car jack powered the 12 V DC electric outlets available in most modern cars. The motivations behind the project and the objectives and goals of the project are also discussed.
Although it was initial plans were to develop a pneumatically operated jack that would work on the car exhaust fumes, rough calculations showed that this idea would not be feasible for safe operation. We later settled on the project idea of a conventional scissor jack that would be operated electrically through the cigarette lighter outlet.
Moving further there were two options available – design a scissor jack form the ground up or to retrofit existing jacks with a motor. It was collectively decided to opt for the retrofit. Pros and cons of this are discussed in the report.
The report provides comparisons of the various component selections and the reasons behind the selection. The main goal was to find creative ideas to keep costs low and to increase safety margins as high as possible.

AN automotive jack is a device used to raise all or part of a vehicle in order to facilitate repairs. It is an indispensable tool for any vehicle.owner. Anybody who has owned and driven car for a substantial time has had to use a jack to replace a tire at some point. Most people are familiar with the basic car jack (manually operated) that is still included as standard equipment with most new cars. Not only is it used in case of emergencies such as a flat tire, it is also an important part of vehicle maintenance as tire rotation or changing to snow tires in winter can be done at home. However in spite of a great deal of advancement in automotive technologies, using an car mechanical jack is not a very pleasant experience. The physically challenged and less athletic amongst us may be able to…...

...An automobile, autocar, motor car or car is a wheeled motor vehicle used for transporting passengers, which also carries its own engine or motor. Most definitions of the term specify that automobiles are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods.[3] The year 1886 is regarded the year of birth of the modern automobile - with the Benz Patent-Motorwagen, by German inventor Carl Benz. Motorized wagons soon replaced animal-drafted carriages, especially after automobiles became affordable for many people when the Ford Model T was introduced in 1908. The term motorcar has formerly also been used in the context of electrified rail systems to denote a car which functions as a small locomotive but also provides space for passengers and baggage. These locomotive cars were often used on suburban routes by both interurban and intercity railroad systems.[4] It was estimated in 2010 that the number of automobiles had risen to over 1 billion vehicles, up from the 500 million of 1986.[5] The numbers are increasing rapidly, especially in China, India and other NICs. ------------------------------------------------- Etymology The word automobile comes, via the French automobile from the Ancient Greek word αὐτός (autós, "self") and the Latin mobilis("movable"); meaning a vehicle that moves itself. The loanword was first adopted in English by The......

He was holding an umbrella and there she was. “Sorry for being late Jack.” “It’s okay Jen. Let’s go now.” Jack Raymond was the most popular boy in school. He was the typical Mills and Boon hero – tall dark and handsome. He was like a Greek God with a well-sculptured body and features that even men envied. Every girl in school admired him openly. Jack was also warm and caring. This endeared him to one and all. He had several close friends of both genders but he was closer to Jennifer, a childhood friend. Soon after finishing high school, both Jack and Jennifer were accepted into the same local university. Jack studied accountancy while Jennifer studied psychology. In their final year, they fell in love with each other. It was like a match made in heaven. They complemented each other in every possible aspect – looks, intelligence and temperament. Upon graduating, Jack was hired by a leading accounting firm while Jennifer joined a private university. Both worked hard and they flourished in their respective careers.  They were also ready to settle down. The marriage was simple, attended by close family members and friends.

Hybrid Cars

...generator to either recharge the battery or directly feed power to an electric motor that drives the vehicle. This takes place when cruising or in other situations where just light thrust is needed.” (Orloff) Hybrid Car Advantages Clean energy. An electric motor together with a gas powered engine make a vehicle that has lower emissions and better gas mileage. It conserves energy while having the power of a standard engine. Performance improvements. New technologies allow hybrids the same kind of performance as normal cars, and they are continuing to develop, improving efficiency, getting better mileage, and reducing emissions even further. Incentives. Varying from state to state and federally, hybrids may come with a tax benefit and savings in the form of much less money spent on fuel. Regenerative braking. Each time you brake, the battery is recharged a little, eliminating the need for stopping to recharge the battery periodically. Lower fossil fuel dependence. Because hybrids are much cleaner and require less fossil fuel to run them, they ultimately help to reduce the dependence on foreign oil and do their part to lower prices domestically. Lighter weight. Because hybrids are constructed using lighter materials, the car does not have to expend as much energy to do the same task. A smaller engine. Again, a smaller engine means a lighter one, and because there is less cylinder displacement, the engine does not have to work......

...quality-oriented producers to penetrate those markets. Since the textile industry was continuously shifting its production into less-developed countries, low-cost producers could position themselves well to service these growing markets. Unfortunately, the merger with Atlas had reduced ML’s opportunities for geographic expansion, since the continuing offshore movement of the garment industry was moving ML’s business into areas serviced by other Atlas divisions. Production Process ML’s production facility was a four-story building located next to the head office in Düsseldorf, West Germany. The top floor of the building, which contained the machining and tooling departments, was primarily dedicated to the production of attaching machines. All design and prototype work for the attaching machines was completed in-house. This represented about 30% of the engineering staff’s activities. Purchased parts, consisting of motors, engines, and all electrical parts, constituted about 30%2 of the total cost of an automatic or semiautomatic attaching machine. Metal parts were cast according to ML’s specifications by a local cast-iron business. After these parts were delivered to the company, they were prepared for welding, then welded, and finally the machines were assembled. Welding and final assembly required highly skilled labor, especially for the automatic and semiautomatic machines. All product-specific parts (i.e., those that had to be changed if a machine was modified to attach......

...Jack Kerouac's Rejection of Traditional Values in On the Road One of the most notable aspects of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, is the author’s willingness todescribe his own behaviors and attitudes in ways that reject traditional values, but enable himto make observations about America. These range from things like excessive drinking, whichwould always be viewed negatively, to an interest in jazz and racial mixing, which would have been viewed negatively in the 1950’s but not today. Also, Kerouac was part of a literarymovement – the Beats – whose rejection of traditional values was well known. BecauseKerouac rejected traditional values, On the Road was very controversial, but it was alsoinfluential.On the Road is a clearly autobiographical book, in which “Kerouac makes no attempt toseparate himself from his narrator” (Bartlett 125). On the Road is based on Kerouac’s actualexperiences, and the characters are based on actual people who he knew. (Bartlett 120;Latham; Charters 410-411). Therefore, Kerouac admits to doing anything that the narrator, SalParadise, did.One form of behavior that would be always be viewed negatively is excessive drinking. Saloften admits to drinking, but Kerouac uses this to make some interesting observations. For example, there is the time when Sal is with his friend Terry, and her brother Rickey andRickey’s friend Ponzo. Since Ponzo is in the business of buying and selling manure, they planto spend the say looking for manure, but they end up spending......

...Between August and November 1888, the Whitechapel area in the East End of London became the scene of five or even six heinous and brutal murders. The identity of the killer of these poor victims has remained a mystery. This mysterious killer was given the name “Jack the Ripper”. Jack wasn’t the first serial killer in the world, but he had no doubt managed to captivate the entire London. All women murdered by Jack the Ripper were prositutes lived and worked in the slums in the East Eng of London. All victims except for one were brutally mutilated. At least three of the victims’ internal organs were even removed from their bodies. People proposed from this action that the Ripper might prossesed anatomical or surgical knowledge. Jack the Ripper was never caught and the whole London was terrorized. The crimes were widely reported in the newspapers and the notoriety of the Ripper endures. In the 1880s, Britain exprienced an influx of immigrants and some cities including the East End of London’s population swelled. The Whitechapel area in London’s East End was overcrowed with immigrants who did not have a job and housing. The area was full of people at or below the poverty line. Working and housing conditions were awful at that time. Many of the residents could not find a job and for those who were lucky to get a job, they were forced to work 15 hours a day. There was not much option for women without a spouse or family. They had to fight very hard in any means for themselves.......

How China Reshape It Car Design

...Reshaping Car Design Across World For global automakers, China is becoming the new California. The U.S. state grabbed the lead a few years ago in establishing fuel-efficiency standards to clean up urban smog. Now, as China struggles with its air-pollution crisis, Beijing increasingly influences the models and technology Detroit, Europe and Japan sell around the world. In response to government rules and incentives that have spurred electric-car sales in China, automakers are beefing up their global electric-vehicle and plug-in offerings. General Motors Co. plans to make a plug-in hybrid version of every Cadillac model. Ford Motor Co. has budgeted $4.5 billion to develop 13 new EVs and plug-in hybrids by 2020, and China is a big reason for both automakers. Daimler AG’s Mercedes-Benz is selling five plug-ins in China, two of which also sell in the U.S. Similarly, BMW AG is engineering plug-in hybrids it sells worldwide to meet China’s electric-drive mandates. “Originally we started with California rules, so the starting point for us was clearly the U.S.,” said Klaus Froehlich, BMW’s global head of product development. “Now, China is a key market. It is very important and the regulations are quite difficult.” Decisions made in Beijing already are affecting cars people drive in Dallas and Los Angeles. That’s because automakers tend to design new models to sell in multiple regions -- and China is the world’s largest auto market. GM engineered its new Chevrolet Bolt electric car......

...Despite the many murders that occurred frequently in Eastend in the 1880’s, Ripper’s murders were said to be ‘singular’ and ‘peculiar’ which suggests that it was unique and that the method of murder was very different. The phrases ‘extraordinary violence’ and ‘excess of effort’ infers that Jack the Ripper was vicious, brutal and went over the top. The victims were the ‘poorest of poor’ so the murderer was not trying to rob the victims. Since there was ‘no adequate motive in the shape of plunder’ it suggests that Jack the Ripper committed these crimes because he or she enjoyed killing. However the source describes the work of Jack the Ripper as the ‘work of a demented being’ which suggests that Jack the Ripper was mad. 2. Study Sources A, B and C Does the evidence of Source C support the evidence of Sources A and B about the Ripper murders? Explain your answer. (8) Sources A and C comment on how the victims were poor so money was not the murderer’s motive. Also the details of how the victim was murdered in source C supports the fact, in source A, that the murder was peculiar and had extra-ordinary violence. However source C is more detailed on the method of murder whereas source A is general describing the murder but not the method. Source C supports source A to a very little extent. Sources B and C agree on the fact that the murder was committed with the use of a knife – ‘In the neck there was a long incision’ ‘cutting the...

This could be due to the absence of prior solution for ANN to form a model or due to presence of noise in the data. * We were estimating how much of each of the independent variables would result in dependent variable. Since we were not performing classification but were estimating the dependent variable, GA was the appropriate technique under the context. * Hence we observe an enormous difference in results between the three when compared the “Total sum of squares”. Situational based technique: * ANN models are more accurate than any other technique but the disadvantage of ANN is the lack of explainability. Also, ANN is...
