Safety and Security

All corporations, and individuals, suffer from an every-increasing onslaught of security threats. Especially in the government and in large corporations, there is always the risk of somebody sitting on your chair over the weekend or at 3 AM, booting your machine with a DVD and installing or stealing high-risk, or illegal information. There is nothing you can do. However, a simple device that does not exist today can advance your sense of security a long way: install a a key on your power supply. Anything else is by-passable by software tricks of some kind, but if there is no power flowing to the motherboard, the degree of difficulty raises exponentially. A simple mechanical or electronic key installed inside the ...

Cargo theft in the United States has reached gigantic proportions. Trailer and/or commodity theft by deception is not uncommon, and a disturbing number of those thefts (40% by some estimates) involve driver and warehouse personnel complicity.

This patented system consists of a communications terminal, located in the truck, which is preprogrammed at the trucking company to include driver name, ID, truck number, commodity and trucking company. Shipper preprograms trailer number and commodity, and any other relevant information pertaining to the shipment, and this information is relayed by shipper to consignee and will be verified automatically along with driver ID, when truck arrives at facility.

The system contains a confirmation security (C/S) pad containing a weight sensor, and deploys LAN ...

SSPAA (Security system and post-accident analyzer)
Description
A system which will take care of security needs and provide critical/predictive information on accidents.

Development stage: Very Early

Components (See illustration 1)
1. GPS
2. Two mini cameras
3. Speed sensors (for wheels)
3. A simple processing unit (Electronic control units, available in most cars)
4. A central server (Data logging system)
A separate data processing station has to be setup which can recieve and process data from a huge number of cars
5. Data transmission device

Accident Analysis
(Predictive /post-accident analysis)
(See illustration 2- Image is a simulated one)

SENSOR BASE VEHICLE HORN

With present vehicle horns when we press the button (switch) it gives sound which pollutes our surrounding area. Mostly vehicle horns are used when a driver wants to overtake the other vehicle or if some person etc. come in front of the vehicle OR there some other people who misuse the horn while driving. When it switched ON it gives environment pollution.

My sensor based vehicle horn is a simple electronic gadget for today and tomorrow's generation.

HOW IT’S WORKS:

Examples (A Car) & (B Car) are two vehicles (A Car) is in front of (B Car) vehicle, as (B Car)vehicle wants to overtake (A Car) (B Car) vehicle press the switch and a sensor ...

The proposed design will prevent and reduce injuries and destruction in road accidents in specific locations and settings. It will also help in improving public safety and security in road accidents. It may also lead to other product development if ICT and advanced materials are incorporated.

The generally erected road rails are not responsive to the depth of impact from accidents and as they are static total force exerted on any such rail increases the probability of failure of the rail in relation to the weight and speed of the vehicle. As such the total force if crosses the load bearing capacity of the rails the rail will shatter or the vehicle itself may topple over the rail.

These cams communicate among themselves!

If a motion is detected by a cam, it alerts all the other cams about it. If the intruder takes a diversion, the cam which is filming him alerts the other cam which is located in the direction taken by the intruder and gets back to its normal mode. Thus, at any point of time, the intruder is continuously tracked by one cam or the other. These cams communicate by sending a trigger signal to the appropriate cam. A monitor displays the movements of a suspected person.

Another special feature of these smart cams is the availability of facial recognition facility. These cams have a high resolution and are capable of faster facial recognition ...

Valve boxes and covers, as currently used, are a cost center and allow for security and safety vulnerabilities. The purposes of the invention are to increase highway safety and to extend the useful life of a pavement by eliminating pavement settlement and the development of potholes at the site of the valve cover (due to the flexing of the pavement/earth and the current rigid design).

As of right now, a terrorist can ignite a gas line through an unsecured cover near a crowded area, which happens in other countries.

In the case of other emergencies, such as a natural disaster or contractor damage, when it may be desired to shut down a particular utility line rapidly, the appropriate valve ...

I designed this flexible solar film powered highway safety cone add-on with form, fit, and function in mind. In order to be useful, it must conform to present use of safety cones. They're thrown out of trucks, stacked on top of each other on a rod support, have only 1" of open clearance between them when stacked and have no external room for power packs. The cone shown addresses all of the above. The cap is made of silicon rubber that snaps into present day safety cones of various diameter top openings. The CREE LEDs inside the cap are controlled by a COB (Chip on Board) and software to minimize current consumption. The solar film is coated with a ...

Space Rover (sometimes referred to as a Spacebot Cowboy)

Recently while listening to news describing how space junk was threatening the Space Station I thought of how I used to use an R/C power boat to corral balls that had gone into the water while playing beach volleyball. I found a boat that was semi pontoon style with two hulls instead of one, like most boats. Once I had put the boat into the water and essentially driven it remotely to go to the ball, I could align the ball between the two hulls and push the ball into shore, all under remote control. Now, corralling a piece of space junk is obviously more difficult than doing the same ...

Innovation:

The Inflatable Spherical Survival Container is specifically engineered for a wide range of life saving applications. The use of this invention is to protect the occupants from drowning, exposure to the elements, and being injured from flying and floating debris. It is stored in a semi-portable container that is equipped with pressurized Compressed Air Tanks that inflate it in an emergency. The outside has reflective material that also glows in the dark and it is Safety orange to assist in the rescue.

Manufacturability:

The material and fabrication used to manufacture it has already been proven in the marketplace. So fabrication time and cost shall be at a minimum. It is made of a Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) that is ...
