The rate of technological advancement in the vehicle sector has been phenomenal since its inception. Safety has consistently been prioritized, and rightly so. It’s a never-ending struggle to keep drivers, pedestrians, and others on the road as safe as possible. Many technological developments continue to be vigorously pursued in the effort to reduce risk and injury.
Two notable solutions from Duplicent (duplicent.com) can be found in technologies created by Curren Krasnoff to target the safety of drivers and their vehicles. Let’s dive into details about these creative, safety-focused inventions.
This flat rubber pad mounted beneath a vehicle is activated in an emergency to contact the surface of the road and quickly slow a vehicle by causing friction with the pavement. Its braking surface is more than three times that of the four tires combined, providing greater stopping power than those four tires can provide.
Deploying in less than a half-second when the brake pedal is completely extended, the Road Brake’s significant friction slows the car in an emergency but causes no damage to the road due to its rubber bottom. It retracts after each use until it is needed again, and its low profile renders it invisible during everyday driving.
The Rotor Brake enhances braking force by enabling the two rotors to move outward and push back against the two brake pads as the pads are pressed on the rotors.
These are the kind of safety innovations that emerge when an inventor thinks outside the box.
Duplicent is also working on other technologies in various development stages. Cloud computing architectures, energy technologies, earthquake mitigation technologies, computer memory technologies, engines, phones, and aircraft are among the other technologies for which Duplicent has filed patents.
