There has been much research on computer vision for the purpose of vehicle safety applications, making use of diverse methodologies like complex vision algorithms. However, despite its effectiveness, computer vision algorithms sometimes lack the robustness of mammalian visual system for the application in dynamic environments present in vehicle driving conditions. The new design approach of the neuromorphic visual information processing offers an alternative which mimics the robustness and flexibility of the primary visual cortex, based on Hubel and Wiesel’s experimentation and Hodgkin-Huxley formalism. The elements of implementation of neuromorphic visual system is introduced with the orientation tuned function of synaptic connections and the spiking neurons. The idea is applied to the detection or recognition of human objects with the ...

The bioethanol-reactor aims to combine the delignification and SSF process simultaneously in a single reactor. Function of this tool is to reduce levels of lignin, and also used in the saccharification and fermentation of lignocellulosic materials.This reactor is designed to produce second generation of bioethanol.

The reactor is a jacketed reactor with 120L volume, made of stainless steel ss 304 and 5mm thickness. It is equipped with a single stirrer blade. Jacket that is filled with thermal oil heaters, blanketed the reactor with 50mm thickness from the walls of the reactor, fiber-ceramic is also used as an insulator. Height of the reactor is 660mm from the bottom of the reactor which is shaped earthenware. It also is equipped ...

The objective of this project is to understand, manipulate and enhance the dexterity of a robotic hand, and its controlling by various methods (in our case, a potentiometer fitted Exoskeleton Glove).

Our project may be a useful alternative for people who have lost their arm. The output from their sensory nerves may be tapped, amplified and fed as control signals to the robotic arm. This project is the first step to manufacture cheap prosthetics for the needy.

The project is also applicable in fields of manual scavenging of radioactive materials, where the human hand cannot sustain radiation, but a robotic arm may be helpful.

The project implementation is subdivided into the main tasks, as follows..

Nowadays, wastewater treatment plants should not be considered as just treatment systems, but rather as a factory at which value-added by-products can be produced without any extra cost. In this context, activated sludge bacteria can produce special lipids known as polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) that are potential bio-plastics; they also accumulate neutral lipids known as triacylglycerols (TAGs) that are biodiesel precursors. One can exploit these types of cellular lipids from mixed microbial communities readily available in wastewater on which they grow and make value-added by-products from waste stream in treatment ...

Birds are susceptible to noise as are other animals such as dogs, deer, etc. The object of this concept is to develop a low/high frequency generator and antenna system which can be integrated onto an aircraft which does not interfere with existing operating systems. The system would be similar to a car horn or deer whistle, which announces the approach of the car or in this case, an aircraft.

The system would consist of an antenna and a preprogrammed signal generator that has been programmed to transmit signals found to be the best deterrent to the types of birds found in a particular area of aircraft operation. The type of birds found at various airports varies from North to ...

Bladeless Wind Turbine

Every year windmills kill 573,000 birds in the US according to the Associated Press. By some estimates the total number of birds and bats killed worldwide every year runs into several millions.
The concept being proposed in this abstract is for a “bladeless” windmill that would drastically reduce or eliminate bird fatalities due to windmills. The idea is based firstly on an electric fan proposed in a Japanese patent which has expired – (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/6377644/Dyson-fan-was-it-invented-30-years-ago.html), and the Dyson fan. The Dyson bladeless fan has used airfoil technology to increase the speed and volume of the air moved by the fan – the “air multiplier” effect.

This concept proposes to use similar technology as these fans in a ...

The proposed project is about generation of instantaneously Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) [2] to deflect or damp the blast load of the high explosive explosions. This method can be used as standard countermeasure against any type of warfare explosions.
This project aimed to reduce the blast load caused by any type of the weapon explosions. After a very short time of the detonation, system reacts as a vacuum generator that pulls the whole blast load and throws away from the area to be protected. System reaction time has to be short enough to generate UHV before the blast reaches the area to be protected. Since the highly compressed air after detonation may have supersonic velocities [1].

A high explosive ...

BLiNKZ is an eye-controlled, computer vision aided, wirelessly networked, mobile information device, housed in the familiar form of a pair of eyeglasses.
Once manually turned on, four backward-facing cameras track the eye movements of the user, allowing the wearer to control the interface on the interactive, heads-up display (HUD). Those movements direct the eye cursor, seen as the yellow circle in the HUD. Either a deliberately fixed gaze or a triple-blink, depending on the action involved, can function as a selection action or “click”. BLiNKZ also has two cameras facing forward into the environment. When the eye-tracking cameras detect that the user is gazing intently at an object, such as a Universal Product Code (UPC) symbol, a QR code, ...

In process control and industrial automation the electronics are built into panels. For safety reasons these panels must be closed in order to operate. That makes debugging and monitoring operation under real-world circumstances impossible since the instruments like multi-meters and oscilloscopes cannot be brought out of the panel. Also on installations like windmills or electric towers, personnel have to operate their test equipment in a difficult and sometimes dangerous physical environment. BluDAQ is designed to address these needs by allowing signals to be measured within the panel (or up a tower) and transmit the telemetry to a tablet via wireless communication.

I have designed and prototyped a data acquisition unit that mounts internal to a panel on a standard ...
