The valve actuators are there on this design, albeit for only half the valves. Electromechanical valve actuators are very promising in this context, but they In , motion control methods of a camless engine valve actuation system during . In an electro-mechanical valve actuated engine, the valves are driven by solenoid-type actuators and cam-shaft is eliminated. Individual control of each valve.

You need to make the cores of the solenoids really permeable so that they can be small, but you also need to make them really hard, otherwise you will get mechanical creep in the plungers over time with your solenoids each firing thousands of times per second and about times per second just at idlethrowing things out of alignment — unless you add some sort of fluid coupling between the solenoid and the valve more complexity.
Incremental funding methodology Search for additional papers on this topic. There are rotary engines and radial engines. There is still a need for automotive ICEs, although if you go to full series hybrid then all the complications associated with variable loading and speeds can be tossed out in favour of a fixed-speed, fixed load motor-generator driving a battery pack.
References Publications referenced by this paper. The advantages of camless engines to camshaft engines are analogous to the advantages of electronic fuel injection EFI vs carburetors. Poppet valve engines seem prohibitive to the whole concept. Hmm… Speaking before thinking… I suppose the combustion-pressure would be too much to hold with such a valve configuration.
Forces would be far greater working a valve by sith least an order of magnitude. If you submit something with errors, then your grade is docked for those errors.
Where are all the Camless Engines?
All I want is a DFI two-stroke twin engine for my bike. And failure in closed position during exhaust cycle would blow your engine up aswell, because you have all the expanded gas produced by the combustion which is a lot more than the unburned air-fuel mixture.
Actually chains are becoming a bit unusual. The advantage of a camless engine would be true variable valve timing — the gains would be similar to modern VVT systems but more dramatic. All of the engine manufacturers already are set up for camshaft production. The only one I know of that is worthy of note uses a solenoid actuated complex hydraulic circuit so now you need constant hydraulic power as well to avoid constant electrical consumption through a clever valve arrangement that moves the valve under hydraulic pressure, which makes for a bulkier and more complex unit than solenoids or DOHC or OHV.
The application was APU for the military. Finally, WRT to legislation: I would start driving, but it would be running extremely rough. Same way I trust my electronic brakes to work.
Fiat have them on the Twin-Air units with some electronic controls to allow things like double valve opening during the compression stroke. Abstract As one of variable valve timing VVT approaches, the elctromechanical valve actuator EMVA uses solenoid to actuate valve movement independently for the application of internal combustion engine.

They were based on a helicopter engine from a Hughes factory. The engine valves are quite massive in comparison to the spool valves in a cars transmission, and must move much, much faster many more times. The best effort to date has been from Freevalve, a subsidiary of Koenigsegg.
Heavy thing hits light thing, light thing goes flying in a different direction very fast with hurt people on the inside. Citations Electromechamical citing this paper. VANOS works by allowing the camshaft to slightly rotate a few degrees relative to its normal timing, similar to moving a tooth or two on the timing chain.
Everything comes at a cost though.
It drives me nuts when educated people believe that restrictions — not rewards — entice people to strive for better. If you are conservative, you need 2 solenoids per cylinder, but on a modern multi-valve engine, you might need 4 or more, since you might not want to open both intake or exhaust valves at the precisely the same time.
If the ECU had been in control of those valves, and if it was mechanically possible for the valves to be struck by the pistons, I would have had very expensive engine damage. I barely understand why the people still like to watch it. Slides, rotary valves, everything is on the table.
The solenoid probably fails closed. Wankel is not that unreliable. Speed and power are regulated entirely by the amount of fuel injected. Now the valve lifter:
