There is provided a commercial refrigerator vehicle for the transport of refrigerated produce, the commercial refrigerator vehicle comprising a wheeled chassis, a cab, an internal combustion engine, a refrigerator compartment on the wheeled chassis, and a refrigerator system for controlling interior temperature of the refrigerator compartment. The refrigerator system includes a refrigerator unit, a dedicated rechargeable electrical energy storage device housed in the cab, a vehicle battery pack chargeable directly or indirectly via the internal combustion engine and a charger for the electrical energy storage device. The charger preferably includes a controller for monitoring an activation status of the internal combustion engine and electrically disconnects the vehicle battery pack from the dedicated rechargeable electrical energy storage device when the internal combustion engine is deactivated. There is further provided a method of charging the refrigerator system via the electrical energy storage device.

Apparatus, methods, and systems for separating a fluid mixture are provided which employ gas-handling equipment operable to introduce a gas into the liquid mixture prior to being dispersed within the apparatus, vacuum conditions, and internal condensing. The liquid mixture is dispersed within the separation apparatus as micro-sized droplets. A more volatile portion of the liquid mixture is vaporized when exposed to the vacuum conditions and separates from the non-vaporized liquid portion. The vaporized portion is directed to a condensing structure within the apparatus, which condenses the vaporized portion into a liquid product.

A data expansion system that provides continuum of discrete wireless small cell coverage areas for mobile terminals includes a set of roadway reflectors configured to provide wireless broadband data services to a mobile terminal. Each reflector includes processing circuitry configured to establish communications between the mobile terminal and a backhaul network. Each reflector includes a wireless transceiver configured to transmit and receive data. Each reflector includes a power source that converts solar energy into electricity. Each reflector includes a housing configured to contain the processing circuitry, the transceiver, and the power source. The housing has a raised reflective surface.


The disclosure provides a device for converting wave motion into electricity, and methods of using the devices for generating electricity. The disclosure also provides a power generation device that includes a water blanket having a plurality of pods arranged in a grid for floating on the surface of a body of water. In one example, ball joints and hydraulic cylinders couple each of the pods to adjacent pods. Motors are coupled to the hydraulic cylinders such that a flow of hydraulic fluid created by expansion and compression of the cylinders due to movement of the pods causes rotational motion in the motor. Generators are coupled to respective motors to generate electricity from the rotational motion of the motors. Power from the ocean blanket can be supplemental with wind turbines, water paddles, water turbines, and solar cells.

In a system of surface markers, each surface marker includes a housing having an upper surface with a clear top that, when the surface marker is on a vehicle travel surface, is raised with respect to the vehicle travel surface. The housing includes a battery and photoelectric converter, as well as a sensor detecting vehicles, a wireless transceiver at least transmitting data, and processing circuitry all powered by the battery or converter. The surface marker communicates location information for the surface marker to a mobile terminal, directly or indirectly via a network, and communicates information relating to the vehicle to a remote server within the network. Surface markers may communicate only with each other and mobile terminals, or also communicate with network access points to forward information from other surface markers. Each surface marker optionally includes a reflector around at least a portion of the housing.

In a system of spaced surface markers disposed on a travel surface, each surface marker includes a housing, a power system within the housing producing electrical power from solar energy or vibration, and wireless transceiver(s) within the housing wirelessly communicating with neighboring surface markers. One surface marker relays data from and to another, while a third surface marker relays data from and to a network connection to a remote network. All surface markers may communicate via WiFi. The travel surface may be for vehicles. Each surface marker may communication with a vehicle or mobile device within communication range, to provide location or other information.
