Concept / idea

Overview

The project is aimed at saving fuel in transport.
Reduction of 5% is achieved by using new materials for the drive of drive wheels and all-wheel drive vehicles, for which the devices driving the drive wheels through the cables made of materials such as "kevlar", have been developed and licensed.

Key consumers

Buyers transport cable drives.
Companies producing vehicles with cable drives.
Customers Projects cable drives.

The main problem the project solves

Cable drive allows you to save 5% of fuel without increasing the costs. Reduces weight driveline 30 -50 kg

Market, sales and marketing

Volume of the market: $6000 M

Target market description

The project has an old, mature markets. The annual worldwide market potential of 20 million new vehicles, 50 million new motorcycles. Planned action on several fronts.
Sale of licenses cars and motorcycles manufacturers.
Designing custom cable drives.
The organization of manufacture of cable drives on the orders of manufacturers of auto and motorcycle technology.
Production of transport equipment with cable drives the drive wheels.

Planned entry to market

After the testing and certification of prototypes will be offered to manufacturers of cars and motorcycles to buy a license for the production of cable drives in Russia, Germany, USA. In the first phase the old-established market customer retention is traditionally made attractive price.
The first year of the creation and testing, completion of the second year of prototypes, their certification.
Manufacture of cable drives of transportation to begin in the third year of the enterprise.

Advantages over competitors

Competitors

Traditional drives have been manufactured for many years, the manufacturing and operation techniques have been brought to perfection, which is a strong competitive advantage.

Competitive advantages

The advantage of cable drives compared to the traditional cables is the reduction of the transmission weight due to the strength of aramid fibers of "Kevlar” type  and increasing fuel efficiency of transport.

Detailed description of the project

The project is aimed to replace the devices currently in use on four-wheel drive vehicles, as    well as on motorcycles with chain drive for driving the rear wheels, which allows improving the fuel efficiency by 5%. It works in the old mature market.
First of all, the consumer operating the transport may be interested in reducing the fuel consumption.
At the same time this is a national and a worldwide major problem.
Currently the wheels drives are made of steel. 
Aramid fibers such as "kevlar" used in the cable drives are five times stronger than conventional steel and four and a half times lighter.
Up till now, the drive torque has not been transmitted by cables. 
By 2016 the US authorities demand reducing fuel consumption of the new cars being sold in the country by 40% to 6.8 liters per 100 km.
 The costs for upgrading of one car will make 4333 USD. 
Cable drive allows you to save 5% of fuel without increasing the costs.
Now reducing of fuel consumption is mainly achieved due to the reduction of the vehicle weight. The use of hybrid engines reduces the cost of consumption in transport, but doubly increases fuel consumption in thermal plants generating electricity to recharge the batteries.
