  • Patent number: 8869463
    Abstract: A mobile service station includes a deployable structure configurable between a first closed configuration wherein the structure is a container having two side walls, a roof, a floor, a front wall and a rear wall, and a second deployed configuration as an operating service station. The station includes service station accessories mounted on at least one of the side walls. At least one side wall of the structure is foldable between a first vertical position, wherein the side wall acts as a vertical side wall for the closed configuration, and a second position wherein the side wall acts as additional floor space for the structure in the deployed configuration. The service station is adaptable for use as a high-end food stand, among other applications. A method configures the mobile service station.

  • Patent number: 7727106
    Abstract: A variable ratio transmission for mechanically coupling an input member to an output member, the variable ratio transmission allowing the conversion of an input rotational motion of the input member into an output rotational motion of the output member, the input rotational motion having an input speed and an input torque and the output rotational motion having an output speed and an output torque. The variable ratio transmission includes a variable ratio transmission assembly mechanically coupled to the input member and to the output member for rotating the output member at the output speed in response to the input member being rotated at the input speed, the variable ratio transmission assembly defining a transmission ratio between the output speed and the input speed, the transmission ratio being variable; and a ratio controller mechanically coupled to the variable ratio transmission assembly and to the input member for automatically adjusting the transmission ratio as a function of the input torque.
