Very Advanced Automotive Powertrains with the Crankless Prime Movers 2001-01-3421

Comprehensive background and feasibility studies have been performed that show a novel very advanced automotive crankless prime mover, that is, a 2-, 4- or even 5-stroke thermodynamic cycle, twin-opposed-piston, crankless internal combustion engine (ICE), called the Fijalkowski engine-generator/motor (FE-G/M), has a great deal of potential in meeting and exceeding requirements for ride-by-wire (RBW) or x-by-wire (XBW) automotive mechatronic control system, comprizing drive-by-wire (DBW) all-wheel-drive-able (AWD) propulsion as well as brake-by-wire (BBW) all-wheel-brakeable (AWB) dispulsion mechatronic control hypo-systems for smart automotive vehicles (AV), most of all, for hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). The paper is focusing on main innovations and trends for a ride-by-wire (RBW) or x-by-wire (XBW) automotive mechatronic control system, comprising drive-by-wire (DBW) all-wheel-driveable (AWD) propulsion as well as brake-by-wire (BBW) all-wheel-brakeable (AWB) dispulsion mechatronic control hyposystems, and magneto-rheological fluid (MRF) mechatronic translational-motion-to-rotary-motion (TM-RM) & rotary-motion-to-rotary-motion (RM-RM) commutator prime mover, that is, the FE-G/M.
