This is regarding a Complex 4 Wheeler Automobile Design Model viz
Cars, Jeeps, Lorries, Bus, Tempo etc.

1. Mirrored Structure - i.e. Engine on both sides.
The Driver can sit either on front or rear side (this was the place for storage) to drive the vehicle.

2. Diagonally Opposite Steering Wheel, Brakes, Clutches, Gears positions for both Left hand and Right hand drive vehicles.

Limitations
-----------

1. Storage Information - where to keep the Storage ?. Top of the Vehicle Roof and place where one opens the car door similar to plane cargo place remains the only option ?

2. Cost Factor may go up.

3. The Design could be a complex one and not feasible ?

4. Do you feel if this design model is manufactured there could be any benefits to the consumer ?

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Thank you.

This looks like a complex design to manufacture/construct.

Isn't it ?

1. Mirrored Structure - i.e. Engine on both sides.
The Driver can sit either on front or rear side (this was the place for storage) to drive the vehicle.

2. Diagonally Opposite Steering Wheel, Brakes, Clutches, Gears positions for both Left hand and right hand drive vehicles.

3. Also in those countries, where both Left hand and right hand driving is allowed, the mirrored vehicle can have on the same side Steering Wheel, Brakes, Clutches, Gears positions for both Left hand and right hand drive vehicles.

4. In this Structure taking of a reverse turn once parked in a dead end will be eliminated.

Thank you.

This looks like a Complex design to manufacture/construct.

Isn't it ?

1. Mirrored Structure - i.e. Engine (Two) on both sides.
The Driver can sit either on front or rear side (this was the place for storage) to drive the vehicle.

2. Diagonally Opposite Steering Wheel, Brakes, Clutches, Gears positions for both Left hand and right hand drive vehicles.

3. Also in those countries, where both Left hand and right hand driving is allowed, the mirrored vehicle can have on the same side Steering Wheel, Brakes, Clutches, Gears positions for both Left hand and right hand drive vehicles.

4. In this Structure taking of a reverse turn once parked in a dead end will be eliminated as the Driver will now sit on the opposite side to forward motion the vehicle.

5. The Sitting Accessory will be aligned as per the Driver's Position on both the sides i.e front and rear side of the vehicle.

6. Business Rules/Laws will have to be set regarding Vehicle Motions.

i.e. Start, Stop, Forward Motion, Reverse Motion.


a. A vehicle can be started only one at a time from one side. if on the other side (rear end) somebody tried to start the vehicle, he/she will not be allowed. There will be a Locking mechanism for this.

Ignition system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

b. A vehicle can be started only one at a time from one side. Once the vehicle is in motion i.e forward or reverse, if on the other side (rear end) somebody tried to start the vehicle, he/she will not be allowed. There will be a Locking mechanism.

and there could be more ....

Thanks & Regards,

Thank you.

That exactly we have to find out whether this model can be useful or not for small, medium sized and heavy vehicles viz cars, jeeps, trucks, lorries, buses, tempos, military vehicles etc after speaking with Motor Car Manufacturers viz Ford, General Motors, Mercedes, Toyota, Honda, Mahindra & Mahindra, Bajaj Auto, Tata Motors etc.

Its just a 4 Wheeler Design Model. It may or may not be useful at all.

Isn't it ?

Double and Triple Decker Car Design Models

CATIA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Do you feel, by designing,constructing a double Decker models
for cars similar to Double Decker Buses used in some countries, would it be liked by consumers i.e. Car users ?. If the Double Decker car models is liked by consumers, can we also try for Triple Decker Car
Models ?

A 8-10 Person Sitting Capacity Cars can be doubled using a Double Decker similar to a Bus. There will be a Ladder / Stair Case in the center to allow people to climb and sit on the Top
of the car to get a Top View similar from a Double Decker Bus. The Car Top will be closed. In this Model the Car sitting capacity can increase to another 8-10 people.

Note : The length and width is restricted to number of people travelling in cars. Increasing the Height and employing a Double Decker model will increase the sitting capacity.

The Total Height of a Double Decker Car and Triple Decker Car Models should not exceed the Height of a Bus Carrier and not to be taken with the Total Height of a Double Decker Bus. Note that the Bus Decker Model's Height increases with addition of a extra Deck/Floor.

One can use CATIA Software from Dassault Systems for Designing Double Decker Car and Triple Decker Cars.


Cases
=====

Case 1
---------

Current Model
--------------------

A Five capacity carrier passenger car. Two in the front including the driver and three people
sitting in the rear/back seat. Here n = 5, where n= Total number of Passengers.

Double Decker Car Model
------------------------------------

A Five capacity carrier passenger car. Two in the front including the driver and three people
sitting in the rear/back seat. Here n = 5, where n= Total number of Passengers.
By Adding a Double Deck, the capacity will increase to 10, where five people will sit on the Top Floor.
Now n=10, where n= Total number of Passengers.


Triple Decker Car Model
-----------------------------------

A Five capacity carrier passenger car. Two in the front including the driver and three people
sitting in the rear/back seat. Here n = 5, where n= Total number of Passengers.
By Adding a Double Deck, the capacity will increase to 10, where five people will sit on the Top Floor.
Now n=10, where n= Total number of Passengers.
By Adding another Deck, the capacity will increase to 15, where five people will sit on the Top First Floor.
and another five people will sit on the Top Second Floor. Now n=15, where n= Total number of Passengers.


Case 2
---------


Current Model
--------------------

A Eight capacity carrier passenger car. Two in the front including the driver and six people
sitting in each of the two rear/back seats. Here n = 8, where n= Total number of Passengers.


Double Decker Car Model
------------------------------------

A Eight capacity carrier passenger car. Two in the front including the driver and six people
sitting in each of the two rear/back seats. Here n = 8, where n= Total number of Passengers.
By Adding a Double Deck, the capacity will increase to 16, where eight people will sit on the Top First Floor. Now n=16, where n= Total number of Passengers.


Triple Decker Car Model
-----------------------------------

A Eight capacity carrier passenger car. Two in the front including the driver and three people
sitting in each of the two rear/back seats. Here n = 8, where n= Total number of Passengers.
By Adding a Double Deck, the capacity will increase to 16, where eight people will sit on the Top Floor.
Now n=16, where n= Total number of Passengers.
By Adding another Deck, the capacity will increase to 24, where eight people will sit on the Top First
Floor and another eight people will sit on the Top Second Floor. Now n=24, where n= Total number of Passengers.
