Toyota has announced a new hybrid — their first Camry Hybrid. The new 2007 Camry Hybrid uses a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine with an electric motor/generator plus a high-capacity, high-voltage battery. It delivers 192 horsepower and can accelerate from zero to 60 in less than 9 seconds. For CITY DRIVING, It provides an awesome 43 MPG for it uses Slaughter Engineering’s intellectual property concept of “regenerative braking”.
Just how could any automobile get more MPG in CITY driving than highway? The new 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid does — 37 highway — 43 CITY. How could that possibly be??? — It’s all because Toyota is using Slaughter Engineering’s personal intellectual property, super high efficiency regenerative braking system.

In 1990 and previously, in addition to other auto manufacturers, we sent to the Chairman of the Board of Toyota Motor Corp a number of proposals, demonstration disks, drawings and other material for their consideration of use of our Super High Efficiency New Concept Engines. Based on ethical, moral and all other principles of honor, none of the material was intended to be used nor copied without commensurate reimbursement to Slaughter Engineering which, up to this period of time, has never been received. The information which we sent to them for consideration contained, among many other entirely new concepts, our exclusive, personal intellectual property hybrid concept of regenerative braking.

Just what is “regenerative braking”? It is a superb concept to conserve energy by saving fuel and energy which otherwise would be wasted in the form of heat. In automobile applications, when the driver wishes to decelerate by stepping on the brake, instead of the brake activating the brake shoes and/or pads causing wasted energy to be disappated as heat in the wheel brake durms, the brake shoes and/or pads, instead action of the brake is magnetically coupled to the generator to not only act in a decellerating, braking manner but also to feed the generated power into a battery where it is stored and used to propel the vehicle.

On 30 August 1990 Toyota received our proposal dated 16 August 1990 — which like our previous proposals to them and others in the automotive industry — contained our intellectual property concept of regenerative braking. After Toyota reviewed the proposal for nearly a month — and they had other material from us before that — Toyota returned it with a cover letter dated 27 September 1990 (which indicates they kept and studied the material for at least a month or more undoubtedly making copies for their files and future use) and stated in their letter that “we are not interested in your proposal at this moment”. The new 2007 Toyota Camry hybrid incorporating our regenerative braking unquestionably proves they were far more than just “interested” in it.

Over the many subsequent years, we were never advised by Toyota that they were incorporating our intellectual property hybrid concept of regenerative braking into one of their future automobiles — the new 2007 Camry Hybrid AND OTHERS.

For the record and your information, this is just a very small portion of the information sent to and received from Toyota regarding our Super High Efficiency New Concept Engines including our personal intellectual property hybrid concept of regenerative braking.
