Thanks for all. I tried by best to explain the action plan in the Link:- https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3-4S4GUkoUQQ3VOejVoVWwtcDAzV2w3Z0I1ZXhvdTNnM3lZ/view?usp=sharing

Yes.

(1) A Mechanical Engineer has to verify and guide that the Air Pressure Cylinder will give needed EASE for cycle ride.

for example:- (Power Cylinder) Link:- http://www.janatics.com/Air Cylinders?spid=0

(2) A Software Engineer - who can develop needed software for biometric application / equipment to use and also develop an application form to go to Public.

for Task (1) --> We need to think about this as energy to go a certain distance. The thing is, techinically, it’s identical to the energy inserted by the rider (neglecting air resistance and heat loss).

So if a rider rides 100 miles – the air cylinder should technically be able to store 100 miles of work.

Correct. Normally in the most of the cases the requirement to ride a cycle will be 2 KM or 4 KM (from home to School or College or Office or Shop). Let us say a Rider can provide input energy for 2 KM distance comfortably, we have to provide, extra ’ Energy ’ to ride for another 2 KM distance. But we have to recharge daily or we can provide recharge facility at Parking areas.

To over come Torque, we can use the technology used in Safety balloon at Driver seat in Cars. It will release energy to inflate Balloon instantly. Like that when we release the clutch, the cycle gets momentum and Kinetic Energy develops to ride the cycle easily for longer distances. But this may be for single use and we have to recharge every time we want to get the Torque.

Ok so that is interesting and makes a lot more sense.

Again – how we can help? It sounds like the only way to understand energy required is to understand heat loss, mechanical losses, friction losses so that x input yields .y(x) output where y is energy loss.

from there…what are we trying to accomplish. with a project with so many parts – we want to tackle it step by step, task by task, and make sure each task is laid out clearly
