Performance Improvement of Two Wheeler Locking System Using Value Engineering Technique

Shunmathi M

This research work mainly developed to reduce the number of vehicles stolen per year. There were 49,791 bikes stolen in 2010-that's over $325 million in losses. There are various methods of prevention to reduce the likelihood of a vehicle getting stolen. Some of these include, Devices used to lock a part of the vehicle necessary in its operation, such as the wheel lock (manual), handle bar. Currently used alarm systems are easily be immobilized. In alarm type locking system, it will only inform the owner by high sound when someone tends to move or start the vehicle and stop the engine. But it will not preventing the movement of the vehicle. In this paper is provided on how to use value engineering technique to improve the performance of wheel locking system using ignition key and to develop a new design in pro e software. In wheel locking system, when ignition key is in off state then both front and rear brakes are applied. This will prevent the vehicle movement when it is not in use. This could be done for disc brake system. The brake fluid is passing from the caliper to the reservoir. So the brake piston releases the brake pads against the disc. By applying the wheel locking system in two wheelers, we could reduce the number of vehicles stolen per year.
