David Aberizk, President of Integrated Consultants, a Design and Rapid Prototype firm, in San Diego, California has submitted a Utility Patent. If adopted the patent’s approach will offer vehicle operators a new driving instrument. This new slowing feature directly engages drivers operational prospective to attain increased vehicle efficiency.
Empirical test data indicates that providing motivated drivers the option to initiate convenient-to-use energy recovery slowing options, independent of vehicle braking, will significantly increase motor or electric vehicle efficiency. A vehicle equipped with a driver anticipated slowing scheme better leverages a vehicle’s momentum to store electric energy. Passive regenerative systems do not take advantage of the driver’s anticipatory logic. Drivers that are empowered with the suggested instrumentation garner efficiency increases of a significant 3% to 6% for motor vehicles, and 6% to 9% for Electric Vehicles. Operator-Initiated-Slowing is being achieved with off-the-shelf technology regenerative hardware.… View the rest of the Press Release here
Update: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has Acknowledged our petition requesting the agency to develop standards for operator initiated slowing (OIS). View here
