The On-line Electric Vehicle: Wireless Electric Ground Transportation Systems

This book details the design and technology of the on-line electric vehicle (OLEV) system and its enabling wireless power-transfer technology, the “shaped magnetic field in resonance” (SMFIR). The text shows how OLEV systems can achieve their three linked important goals:

  • reduction of CO2 produced by ground transportation;
  • improved energy efficiency of ground transportation; and
  • contribution to the amelioration or prevention of climate change and global warming.

SMFIR provides power to the OLEV by wireless transmission from underground cables using an alternating magnetic field and the reader learns how this is done. This cable network will in future be part of any local smart grid for energy supply and use thereby exploiting local and renewable energy generation to further its aims.

In addition to the technical details involved with design and realization of a fleet of vehicles combined with extensive subsurface charging infrastructure, practical issues such as those involved with pedestrian safety are considered. Furthermore, the benefits of reductions in harmful emissions without recourse to large banks of batteries are made apparent.

Importantly, the use of Professor Suh’s axiomatic design paradigm enables such a complicated transportation system to be developed at reasonable cost and delivered on time. The book covers both the detailed design and the relevant systems-engineering knowledge and draws on experience gained in the successful implementation of OLEV systems in four Korean cities.

The introduction to axiomatic design and the in-depth discussion of system and technology development provided by The On-line Electric Vehicle is instructive to graduate students in electrical, mechanical and transportation engineering and will help engineers and designers to master the efficient, timely and to-cost implementation of large-scale networked systems. Managers responsible for the running of large transportation infrastructure projects and concerned with technology management more generally will also find much to interest them in this book.

Snapchat For Entrepreneurs: While any business is going to take a huge amount of marketing to get off the ground, starting a business on a budget limits your options.

While any business is going to take a huge amount of marketing to get off the ground, starting a business on a budget limits your options.
That’s why a lot of business owners turn to free channels such as social media.
But they often ignore Snapchat.
Which is crazy, because it’s a great way to have a personal
Snapchat is one of the best ways any business owner is going to have to connect personally with their customer base. Not many other options allow you to get into the hands of your customers, and have them take a physical action to see your messages. That small step can help to increase conversions by making it seem voluntary for your customers to see your message.
An an entrepreneur the opportunity to connect with your audience is an amazing one.
Snapchat can allow you to ask your audience questions, figure out what problems they are having and market to them at a very personal and custom level.
But because very few businesses are using Snapchat, there is a huge opportunity to benefit from it. But this also means there aren’t many people to learn from.
However, I’ve been doing this for many years and have been through the ups and downs.
….which is why I put together a guide to share my tips to help you use Snapchat in a more effective way.
