“Is it possible to generate a patterned surface which is microbe friendly?”
The idea deals with production of easily degradable bio fertilizers using a patterned microbial surface. Fertilizers used in crop cultivation today are synthetic in nature. These synthetic fertilizers are harmful for ecosystem as they result in soil pollution and increase in synthetic chemical concentration of the soil. Though various forms of biofertilizers have been introduced in the market, their use is limited due to their high cost and low efficiency.
In order to combat this problem, an idea is proposed in this article which is at a ...
A “feather-weight”, non-conductive, non-metallic (no wires or metal connections at or near the light-emitting fabric surface), flexible, machine-washable visual display that is embedded into apparel fabric materials via CNC machines.
The output display measuring from a few inches up to 16” in fabric consists of multiple transmission and receptor points using LED/Optic technology coupled with Bluetooth and/or IR encrypted communication protocols. Receiving data from a small watch or bracelet with a GSR sensor measuring resistance changes in the skin, the ECG and heart rate measurements are converted through algorithms then displayed immediately at the surface of the ...

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 ...

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. ...
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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
The proposed project is about generation of instantaneously Ultra High Vacuum (UHV)  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 ...
