Patents by Inventor Chadwick Ray Traylor

Chadwick Ray Traylor has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 6856884
    Abstract: An acceleration gauge using solid-state accelerometers positioned along the major axes of a motor vehicle record and display values representing the acceleration forces on the vehicle. The acceleration gauges, of which there are at least two positioned along the major x-y axes, develop signals to a housing having a microprocessor-based system. The housing is connected to either an analog or digital read out system wherein the various accelerations are displayed. The system can be an analog or digital system using discrete wiring or fiber optics to convey light signals. In the preferred embodiment there are three accelerometers positioned a various locations on the motor vehicle and their signals generate relative forward and reverse speed signals and vehicle tilt angles with respect to the horizontal.

  • Patent number: 6856883
    Abstract: A solid-state accelerometer module adapted to control the operation of the taillights in a motor vehicle for warning the driver of the trailing motor vehicle of a deceleration of the lead vehicle. A retrofit tail lamp contains the solid-state accelerometer module within its housing and by means of at least two separate lamp filaments, the tail lamp can replace the original tail lamp. A motor vehicle may have a receiving antenna and a transmitting antenna electrically connected to a receiver and a transmitter respectively located in the module. The transmitting-receiving system may be located on two different vehicles so that the following vehicle is quickly notified of the deceleration of the lead vehicle.
