Safety and Security - 2012
While driving my four door sedan I like to lower the rear windows slightly using the electronic window control feature that came with my car. This control feature is pretty much standard on most new cars and makes lowering or raising the rear windows a lot easier while driving. (Remember the old days when the driver would have to stop and park the car before using the hand cranks?). As convenient as motorized windows are, the system still lacks one capability that would make the process of adjusting the windows much more complete. The process I'm referring ...
This project is developed to save human life, based on a friction safety system. In 2010 about 4,935 people were killed riding motorcycles of different kinds. One-fourth of these motorcycle accidents were single vehicle accidents involving the motorcycle colliding with the roadway or some fixed object in the environment.
To develop a safety device that encounters an accident before the human body comes into contact.
The friction pads in the device should have maximum contact with the rubbing surface.
Air bags to nullify vibration and force available.
The actuators should bear the impact load during the ...
SafeDrive is a smart widget that detects if a car driver is sleeping at the wheel by computing the blinking frequency and face orientation.
The widget has to be placed on the sun visor of the driver by means of a clip and point the camera to the driver's face.
SafeDrive is battery powered and self-contained and works both in day and night conditions.
A high power buzzer wakes up the driver when a sleeping pattern is detected.
There is only a setup step necessary to make sure that when placed the device is detecting the ...
Normal people become geniuses when they stumble upon intersections of two different fields.
No doubt safety and security is very important in every field of life but more important in eatables.Toxicity is the degree to which a substance can damage a living or non-living organism. Toxicity can refer to the effect on a whole organism, such as an animal, bacterium, or plant, as well as the effect on a substructure of the organism, such as a cell (cytotoxicity) or an organ (organotoxicity), such as the liver (hepatotoxicity). I have manufactured a Butter Stick by which consumer can use butter ...
Bullet made with a heavily leaded glass that will shatter upon impact. Becasue the glass is leaded it can be located by x-ray and can be removed from a person struck by the bullet. Because it will shatter when striking objects it will not ricochet and cause collateral damage to inocent bystanders in a crowded area. This type of ammunition could be used by air marshalls because it will destruct instead of piercing the fuselage of an aircraft. This type of ammunition could also be used by other law enforcement agencies to prevent potential friendly fire casulties to people ...
The most important precondition for maintaining a serious measure of freedom in any society is the availability of secure, decentralized communication systems.
In particular, a hard-to-detect backup physical communication infrastructure is essential, to be used for activists organizing in cases of widespread surveillance or repression, or for coordinating the defense of a city facing an invasion, in case the primary communication systems fail.
Free-Space Optical communication systems address some of these concerns and represent a trade-off between advantages, as there is no single communication system ideal for all circumstances.
Typical FSO systems, however, suffers from the ...
General Description: This design is an aftermarket adapter for standard roof- or porro-prism binoculars. The adapter includes a configuration of tubes, cameras, pico-projectors, a tiny computer with FPGA, secure-WiFi, GPS, compass, and software...plus batteries and an optional motion-controlled mount. The result is a 3-pound, fully-digital, stereo-3D, binocular-vision surveillance system with capabilities rarely-found even in military-grade surveillance systems.
Use Case: The adapter is designed for law-enforcement, homeland security, and defense markets requiring advanced digital, video surveillance on a COTS / open-source budget. Capabilities include object-tracking, face-recognition, range-detection, and secure, stereo 3D video-transmission. The adapter leverages open-source vision software, so capabilities ...
The BMS SLD is an ultra safe lowering device for rope rescue. Constructed of high strength metals, primarily stainless steel, it is designed for many years or trouble free operation in urban fire and rescue environments. Initially conceived for single rope rescue from the roofs of tall buildings, the SLD can be used to lower up to 600 Lbs. in an easy and secure fashion on 12 to 15 mm static kern-mantle and laid rescue rope as well as heat resisting fiber ropes.
The SLD is comprised of two main sub-assemblies, a 3 bar “U” frame rack (B, D,&E) ...
Every year chemical manufacturing companies spend millions of dollars and thousands of man hours attempting to increase safety and prevent dangerous chemical leaks and accidents. Regardless of these efforts, dangerous chemical leaks still occur. The US Chemical Safety Board, an independent federal agency that investigates chemical accidents, has maintained a thorough list of accidents for more than twenty years with 13 incidents currently under investigation. The chemical manufacturing industry needs better technological solutions to prevent these dangerous and costly accidents.
We propose a new device called the spectral snapshot camera (SSC), a new remote sensing tool ...
At high attitudes there are plenty of winds. My idea is use wind energy. First use is to create addition lifting force. Second use is to charge the battery of a Soaring Surveillance Device.i
Soaring Surveillance Device consists of four main parts:
2) Vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT).
VAWT rotor connected with electric generator.
Electric generator (topmost part of control unit) charges battery.
It increases operation time off battery.
3) Control unit.
Control unit consist of four main systems:
a) electric generator.
b) computer and radio connection device.
d) surveillance equipment.
Computer controls rotation and tilt ...
