A restatement of vehicle physics, largely from Thomas [8] follows, which is the basis for characterizing vehicles in the energy conversion efficiency and tractive energy domain for the specific purposes of this study and was utilized for previous efforts [7, 8, 9, 10].
Tractive, said: "For the services we provide to loving pet owners,
While other pet monitors go a little bit deeper - Tractive also have a pet GPS unit that usefully tells you where your pet is and has been - the Motion does pretty much what it's designed for.
According to the company, tractive force and speed are adapted to suit demand automatically and without gear changes.
The Mercedes 9G-TR0NIC transmission--a nine-speed that features a torque converter with an efficiency of converting engine power to tractive power of 92%, which is an improvement over the circa 2003's 7G-TRONIC's of 85%--required the development of some sophisticated metalcutting in order to be built.
The advanced cargo handling system uses only one type of power drive unit (PDU) to provide the required tractive force to move ULDOs in and out of the aircraft and within the cargo hold to its final parking position.
Peterest is constantly improving and additional features based on user feedback are currently being developed by Tractive, the Austrian Startup behind Peterest.

In 2007, Power Machines and BelAZ signed an agreement on cooperation in the production and supply of tractive electric drives for large trucks and the provision of related services.
The machine refinements include a variable frequency drive for the belt; traction and hopper conveyor drives that provide smooth operation and matched cut to load advantage; drive synchronization for improved tractive effort; traction module independent control through Faceboss to improve traction across uneven floors; maintenance of belt and chain at creep speed; improved diagnostics for increased production uptime; a robust, reversible car design; dual outby belt conveyor drives; and improved belt designs now exceeding 1 million tons of wear life in certain applications.
Added value features on this purpose-built tractor are ground clearance, tractive effort and durability.
