    Developing a variable valve actuation system for an engine to increase efficiency, fuel economy, emission performance and providing viable design to be potentially manufactured on a large scale .
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Use of this technology has become more common in recent years as an effective technique for improving fuel economy and exhaust emissions as well as engine output, and it is growing in importance as a promising technique for reducing CO2 in response to environmental problems in particular.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   There are 1 Billion automobiles in the world with 4 major global corporations and more than 60 auto brands around the globe. Our idea will facilitate the whole automobile industry.
How will the solution works
    In a camless engine, charge gases and exhaust gases are introduced and expelled from the engine in the conventional method, via valves opening and closing at a pre-ordained time using camshaft. Instead of using rotating cams that are driven from the engine’s crank to actuate the valves, a camless engine uses air pressure above and below a piston that is connected to the valves to operate it .There are also some examples that use electromagnets to operate the valves, although these aren't common.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Camless valve trains have long been investigated by several companies, including Renault, BMW, Fiat, Valeo, General Motors, Lotus Engineering, Ford and Koenigsegg's sister company FreeValve. Some of these systems are commercially available, although not yet in engines in production road vehicles.
