A poster submitted in ENG 207 for the Fall 2013 semester.
Our team performed an in depth research on this topic to identify the existing problems of the diesel fuel tractors. Manufacturing companies did not think of changing the conventional tractors as they have neglected the negative effects of using these tractors. Most of the issues are concerned with diesel emissions. Diesel emissions not only endanger the health of workers, but they also reduce the growth of stems and roots, delay blooming and develop necrotic lesions. Based on our findings, we redesigned the conventional tractor by integrating the following four different components: nanoparticle electrodes, solar monitoring system, regenerative brakes, and dual clutch transmission. Each of these components helps make our design cost effective and energy efficient.
