Air pollution is a major threat in the ever growing urban lanscapes: here, we propose a crowd monitoring system, where air control is done by eveyone for everybody.

This design provides an effective solution to check air quality and share real-time measurements all over the community. The solution is based on a meteo station to be installed at home, which sends its data to a web based service; data is organized and made accessible through web pages.

The meteo station, apart from the standard measurements such as temperature, humidity, and pressure, will be equipped with the latest generation devices for measuring the presence of contaminants in the air, such as carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3), particulate ...

OVERVIEW
Aid visually or hearing impaired users via Augmented Glasses (AG), WiFi, and GPS. Used with mobile devices - smartphones and tablets - to identify points of interest in buildings, called Locations. AG or mobile device allow hands-free or touch pad control to the system. Operates in two modes, Hearing (user can hear) and Visual (user can see). Both modes identify Destinations such as: entrance, lobby, North entrance, emergency exit, men’s, women’s restrooms (and handicapped stalls within), water fountains, stairs, elevators, floor indicators, halls, conference rooms, major office numbers, and keep out zones (KOZs - construction, wet floors, etc). Locations mount active RFID tags that interact with WiFi at Destinations.

SYSTEM OPERATION
For both modes, a Pointer gives directions ...

Breastfeeding is the natural way to feed a baby, and the benefits of breastfeeding extend well beyond basic nutrition. However, some women, as much as they want to, are just unable to breastfeed, at least not exclusively.

It is therefore desirable to provide nutritional compositions, such as synthetic infant formulas, that can produce nutritional benefits in infants. Typical infant formulas are provided as packaged bulk powders, which a user must reconstitute by measuring out a specified amount of powder and adding it to an appropriate volume of liquid with shaking. This can lead to inconsistent amounts of both powder and liquid being used, and can lead to significant air being introduced into the formula when it is shaken.

Furthermore, ...

BEEP BEEP BEEP. In a daze you wake up, fumbling for your phone. You check it only to find out it's not your alarm... and realize that it's your roommate's... again.

Being unintentionally awakened by a roommate's alarm is a common occurrence everywhere rooms are shared, myself being both the victim and the guilty one in this matter. Struggling to find a reasonably priced solution to this issue, Individual Sound came to be - a compact, lower cost set of directional speakers.

Individual Sound is a parabolic speaker which uses physics to optimize parabola dimensions and speaker distance to perfectly direct sound in one direction without disturbing anyone else outside of its scope. This technology can be seen around us ...

Insects, the next meat. Few in the Western world like to admit that meat sources around the globe are going to be unsustainable as population increases. In fact, more nutritionists are coming out and proclaiming that beef, and pork are not very healthy in the first place, and we all know how crowded chicken coops can be, spreading disease to large populations. While fish have been found to be contaminated as our oceans continue to be polluted, and fish farms can be less nutritious.

Many Westerners don’t even like to look at their food in the original form but we are able to chow down on a 12 oz. ribeye on the 4th of July, while some children don’t know ...

INSTASHAKE™

The first instant drink and supplement preparation system that enables you to “Make Your Instant Drink Instantly" with 21st century self-dissolving packaging technology.

The current ways of preparing instant drinks and supplements are messy, time-consuming, and wasteful. InstaShake™ solves all of these issues.

Aren’t you sick and tired of the mess you end up generating, while making your “instant” drink of protein powder, energy supplement, probiotic blend, milk, chocolate milk, vanilla shake, etc?

Aren’t they inconvenient to measure out, easy to spill while pouring into a cup or blender, hard to dissolve, and a pain to clean up afterwards?

And it’s not much better with pre-measured pouches either - they spill easily when opening, and you’re left with ...

NASA has developed a new software tool for optimizing interior layout designs of highly constrained, highly integrated, and/or confined spaces, such as space habitats. This tool will automatically generate or evaluate interior layout options while taking into account multiple end-user objectives. Development and evaluation of interior layouts is often ignored during conceptual design because of the subjectivity and long times required using current evaluation methods (e.g., human-in-the-loop mockup tests and in-depth CAD evaluations). The NASA tool will allow for early, more objective assessment that will prevent expensive design changes, which can increase vehicle mass and compromise functionality.

Benefits

* Provides a comprehensive and timely method to measure the effectiveness of an interior layout, particularly at  conceptual ...

IoBike is a lighting solution that connects bicycles to the IoT. We bring safety and interactivity to cyclists and a geomarketing possibility to advertisers.

Our technology implements in a bicycle-embedded hardware a wheel display using the Persistance of Vision concept, and creates brake-lights and headlights projected from the wheel. The bicycle-embedded hardware communicates with our geostatic beacons that collect bike-traffic data and allow interaction with the location. The beacons communicate to the operation backbone trough gateways that centralize the collected data and allow updates on the beacons' ...

In the Internet of things (IoT), many people think about new products and existing electronics to add IoT. However, something as basic as diaper can benefit from being smart. This project would put a small IoT device with sensor into a diaper or diaper liner pant. The sensor would detect if the diaper needs to be changed. The IoT would notify an app of a smart device about the need levels and situation. Now most people think diaper for a baby, but a larger market is adult diaper and leak protectors since many users of such devices are not aware of the need to be changed. This situation impacts heath because of situations such as Urinary track infections and ...

In nearly all urban areas, with high population of both humans and automobiles, finding parking spaces is a hassle. It is a very time & fuel consuming affair. Most workplaces & commercial establishments are unable to meet the demands for parking areas needed. But since the land area available is limited, efficient management of parking spaces is the only way to reduce the unnecessary delays and fuel consumption.

"On Parking" aims to provide complete control by automating the Parking Structures to ensure the Population can book their Parking slots in advance to make it Hassle-free while reducing unnecessary fuel consumption leading overall reduction in Global Warming.

On Parking works as a Two Part system - Hardware devices installed at ...
