Silicon Valley Electronic Transportation Development Center

Focus I: Energy & Environment

The Electronic Transportation Development Center would focus Silicon Valley technologies to

(1) reduce our dependency on foreign oil,
(2) reduce vehicle pollution in the air and
(3) look at better ways to move people with high technology ground transportation

As one example of all ground transportation vehicles (trucks, buses, cars, industrial, ground support and motorcycles) the ETDC would build a DEMONSTRATION HYBRID BUS including many of the EARLY CONTRIBUTOR Silicon Valley Technologies. The Demonstration Bus will be used as a “MOBIL LAB” to educate other companies how their technology could help meet the stated American Opportunities . The schematic below shows electronics layouts of many of the systems that make vehicles move, stop, turn and provide comfort for the occupants.

The objective of the ETDC is to Identify TRANSPORTATION NEEDS of all fuel vehicles (internal combustion, hybrid electric,fuel cell) and match-up TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS : Examples
