Safety and Security

* Here is a product that enhances the security or safety of individuals, businesses, communities, or nations.

* According to Wikipedia, revolving doors are favoured because they can be used as an airlock to minimise a building's heating and air conditioning losses.

* This principle can effectively be applied to the requirement to transfer plastic trays from ambient conditions into and out of a pressurised, high-temperature atmosphere at production speeds.

* The proposed process to transfer trays from ambient to CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear) conditions (high temperature and high pressure) quickly and efficiently is the "4-Chamber Horizontal Revolving-Door Airlock System".

* The novel 4-Chamber Horizontal ...

Could we save the life of people from ongoing uncertainty explosive elements through mobile devices?
Here it is an idea to enhance the use of mobile devices by using both a Wireless Sensor Network and Mobile Network.
Now-a-days, as every person has a mobile device, it can be useful for collecting environmental information around the person and provide this information to the Mobile Operator for further processing. If we are able to embed a small sensor inside the mobile device, it could enhance the use of the mobile device and would be helpful to the human being in many ways.
When the sensors detects the event being monitored (heat, pressure, sound, light, electro-magnetic field, vibration, etc.), the event needs to be ...

We are now farther from the year that humans first landed on the Moon than we are from the year that the maximum number of human beings will be alive on the Earth. The established models put that population peak at 9.2 billion in 2050. This is the most important thing that has happened to our species in 64,000 years and is the apex problem for the 21st century.

About 2 billion of these people will live in mega cities similar to present-day Mexico City and Rio de Janiero. They will not have decent housing, automobiles, health care, or even sufficient water. What they will have is a life style that places little stress upon planet Earth, much lower ...

This device, when attached to a ladder, keeps it from falling or sliding off of walls. Its secure spring loaded clamp allows the stabilizer to be attached to two rungs of a ladder. Through simple manipulation, the adjustable “grabbing arms” can be shaped to grab the inside or outside corner of a house or can be shaped to secure ladder around windows and other difficult-to-reach places. The top platform is used as a frame, tool and supplies holder. The main objective of this invention is: safety for all ladder users and versatility of its ...

This project aims to reduce significantly the number of airplane crashes throughout the world. Considering the consequences after each crashing, we think it’s absolutely nonsense to let airplanes crash over a distance usually less than 2 kilometers when there is on board enough gas and electricity to permit the plane to travel over more than 10,000 km. In the first time, our idea will prevent these tragedies and in the future, when all this technology will be mastering , it’ll help to strengthen safety and manageability in airplane navigation . For instance, our system could help in the future to land an airplane on a very restricted area than now. Nowadays, it becomes very important to improve security in every ...

Utilization of front amber turn signal lamps, employed as collision and pedestrian avoidance safety lighting, for every car, truck, motorcycle, moped, and semi-tractor trailer on the planet. This is accomplished using ultra low cost design from U.S. Patent #7,482,756. This design and system improves daytime public safety and security, plus can improve transportation safety for businesses, communities and even nations. Amber safety lighting on vehicles is proven to improve conspicuity of moving vehicles in all regions of the planet, from equatorial to polar, and in all points in between. This design, not currently in production, uses 8 basic electrical parts, at less than $10 per vehicle. This design draws no internal energy of its own while producing the DRL ...

Recent earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, and the tsunami in Indonesia, destroyed local energy and communications infrastructure. Friends and family were often unable to contact loved ones for days or weeks. My entry allows people affected by a disaster to make contact within hours, sending their precise location and a tweet -- a few words of text -- even when cell phones and landlines are down. Contacts can be made over thousands of miles.

My entry consists of a two-way radio, powered by three D-cell batteries, with a dial pad and LCD readout. A user keys in a text message. The radio then takes about an hour to send the message, along with a GPS-derived location. Receiving works similarly.

All people with epilepsy may not be able to use their cars because in a crisis, with loss of consciousness, can cause serious accidents.
Extensive studies of neurological signals of patients with epilepsy have shown that several minutes before a seizure, the brain sends warning signals recognizable by an analysis feature.
The idea illustrated here involves the construction of glasses equipped with electrodes suitable for the detection of neurological signals from both sides of the temporal head, a DSP (Digital Signal Processor) by real-time analysis recognition of warning signals sent by the brain and experience the patient with an acoustic signal to stop the ...

When big vehicles make sweeping turns, sometimes the process can be dangerous.

The diagram shows the area between the black and red curved lines which is swept out by an articulated lorry.

My invention is therefore to equip these vehicles with a number of roof-mounted spotlights which shine eg red light onto the ground.

These are directed, by data on the current steering wheel position, to illuminate the road area which is about to be swept through.

If people or other vehicles find themselves located in this brightly coloured light, it’s time to pull back to safety.

It might also be possible to have a version of this in which a light beam is pointed from each side of ...

• What problem does your design idea solve?
This design reduces the response time to an airplane accident by the airport’s ARFF vehicles. Reducing response time is the best way to improve the ability to quickly extinguish a postcrash fire.
• What are the potential benefits?
There are two big benefits from this design: first, reducing the ARFF response time should result in saving lives in the event of an air carrier accident on the airport. Secondly, automating this initial response maneuver would redirect rescue personnel needs for the airports and allow them to be repositioned in duties nearer to the everyday functions, within the terminal, thus improving their response times to events involving individuals in ...
