This novel electricity generator is capable of supplying all our power requirements, thus solving one of the earth's critical needs.

This electricity generator functions using known electromagnetic principles that simply have not been applied previously. They do not function in the manner of all current-art electricity generators, which move wires through a magnetic field to generate electricity, and require an external source of energy to power that movement. Whereas the velocity of that physical movement in current-art generators is inherently limited and subject to other restrictions, there is no practical limit to the frequency of the inducing current (and therefore the output) of the herein-described electricity generator.

All generator variants are modular and scalable: even the largest generators would ...

The Armadillo-T is a four-wheel independent drive, all electric micro vehicle, with a maximum two seats with a four golf-bag of trunk space, specifically designed and optimized for short distance city or closed route travels. It endeavors to be the solution for the lack of parking spaces and road congestion, by simply folding itself in half and enabling self-parking with a smartphone-interfaced remote control.
In addition, it can provide a solution for the people with reduced mobility with a personalized public transportation by connecting different modes of public transportation or specific closed route applications of traveling or tour visiting, etc.

Key features of the Armadillo-T:

A. Foldable body
The design of “Armadillo-T” prototype is based on the ...

NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center (AFRC) has developed a dramatically improved system for aircraft ground collision avoidance, which could prevent ~100 deaths each year in the U.S. alone. This advanced warning system offers critical features that have been packaged into an app for mobile devices to be used by pilots in any general aviation aircraft cockpit. This lifesaving safety tool also can be used in helicopters, fighter aircraft, and even unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

PROBLEM: Controlled flight into terrain (CFIT) occurs when distracted or incapacitated pilots fly a fully functioning aircraft into the ground. More than 5,600 CFIT-related deaths occurred in the U.S. 2000-2009 (i.e., 17% of general aviation fatalities). The CFIT warning systems available to large commercial air ...

The main objective of the proposed system is to rescue the infants who accidentally fall into the bore well due to improper maintenance at the digging spot. The proposed system is a robot which can crawl into the bore well and lift the infant from the well with the help of two 3DOF robotic arm which is controlled by gesture which is termed to be called as “shadow control technology” in the system and the robot get a human touch in its control by this technology and reduces operation time. This also helps to rescue the infant from any orientation they are present. The robot can also be used in applications like scavenger cleaning and pipe inspection with some ...

In vitro studies of cell behavior are an essential prerequisite in determining in vivo responses to pharmacological agents, cell therapies, biomaterials, and implantable devices. However, culturing mammalian cells on a conventional Petri dish is not an accurate representation of the in vivo environment and as a result cells behave in a way that may not be medically relevant. To address this issue, a design for an inexpensive culture surface or scaffold has been designed and manufactured at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Cells cultured on this scaffold exhibit significant changes in morphology, cytoskeleton arrangement, gene expression, and ECM formation when compared to cells grown on conventional substrates. The scaffold can be made from a variety of synthetic or natural materials since ...

In the year 2015, the hot weather in India caused lots of people to die.

I designed a house with a special structure which can make it cooler in the house than outside. The house is made by a special structure which has special thermal property. The roof and the wall of the house is made of a honeycomb structure. However, on the basis of the honeycomb, we add some new structural design for making the air in the structure flow in an special way and the neighboring cell of the honecomb is made of different material with different thermal property. The flow in the structure could takes the heat in the structure outside and the heat ...

This is a small and lightweight device that can be worn on the ear or on glasses (recommended) and is designed to measure accurate cardiovascular information through the superficial temporal artery near the ears. The measurable information includes blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen saturation level and pulse waveform. Accurate measurement of this information can not only help people understand and monitor their health conditions, but also enable some remote disease prediction and diagnosis such as hypertension, heart failure, type I diabetes, etc.

Compared to current commercialized wearable/smart devices, like FitBit or iWatch, our device can support many beneficial healthcare functions they don’t and can’t. Most current wearable devices are worn on wrist. It is well-known that wrist is the ...

The wind is a renewable energy source. Wind turbines can convert its kinetic energy into electricity. As the windiest country in Europe, the UK is well placed to harness wind energy. A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into electrical power. A wind turbine used for charging batteries may be referred to as a wind charger.

Not all the energy of blowing wind can be harvested, since conservation of mass requires that as much mass of air exits the turbine as enters it. Betz' law gives the maximal achievable extraction of wind power by a wind turbine as 59% of the total kinetic energy of the air flowing through the turbine.Further inefficiencies, ...

Donald W. Collins, Ph.D., has been involved in developing the ACADZ 3D STL Radiation Compensator Negative Plastic Mold Filter Conversion Software/Hardware - “Combined Package” to convert the DICOM RT Optimal Fluence Patient Treatment Plan Files (.dcm) into 3D (.stl) code files to be used on a 3D Printer for printing 3D Compensator Negative Plastic Molds. This ACADZ “Combined Package” will be used by the Radiation Hospital or Clinic, In-House, for translating the Cancer Patient’s DICOM RT Optimal Fluence Treatment Plan Files (.dcm) or 3D Compensator Negative Plastic Mold Filter Files (.asc) for each Patient’s Treatment Plan Field into XYZ 3D Printer (.stl files) to be used on the 3D Systems Corporation’s – 3D Systems ZPrinter® 450 for printing the ...

Our project is a solution for improving the present form of ‘Baggage handling system’ at airports. The main objective of our project is to create a system which is error free (zero error probability) and is faster than the present system.

For this we are promoting use of RFID tags on baggage and tickets instead of barcode tags. But the main focus of our project is on the arrival side where passengers have to get their luggage from baggage carousel (revolving conveyor belt) which leads to situations like passengers picking up wrong baggage, baggage getting stolen and sometimes baggage are put on wrong carousel (by airport staffs).

So our project aims at ensuring that the ...
