Salient features of the IVT:
Non-friction dependent (all geared). No slip.
Does not require additional electric motor or hydraulic pump/motor for operation.
Uniform and steady output for a steady input
Co-axial input / output
Ranging from full forward to full reverse
High torque capability
Efficient, Versatile and Scalable
Simple construction and assembly
Compact and Light weight
Cheaper to manufacture
Use of readily available commercial off the shelf (COTS) components
Eliminates the need for clutch
Possibly eliminates the need for a torque converter
Multiple configurations aid packaging within available space
Eco-friendly (increased fuel efficiency)
Can easily replace/retrofit existing regular transmissions with minor changes
Patented technology in US, Japan and China and patent penting in multiple other countries on multiple innovative designs for Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT) that is NON-DEPENDENT ON FRICTION AND PROVIDES UNIFORM INPUT TO OUTPUT RATIO. We have built a hand-held prototype for proof of concept/product demonstration. We are currently working on building a prototype for a tractor.
Use of custom Geneva mechanism in transmissions (patent pending)
Used to achieve constant rack velocity of a scotch yoke mechanism and thereby achieving constant angular velocity of the pinion
