GM Offers an Improved Safety Technology for Electrical Boxes
Electrical safety is important in every location. Knowing the difference between an electrical device that is energized with electricity and one that is de-energized is important if you are going to perform work in an electrical panel box. Many electrical panel boxes are complicated and just because main the power disconnect lever is pulled, it does not mean that it is safe. Energy can still be present that can cause shocks, arc flashes, or even electrocution to those individuals servicing the panel. Possible sources may be incorrect wiring, external device add-ons, and the presence of residual charge from capacitors. GM has invented a device that indicates to the operator that ...

As Marcus Lemonis from CNBC’s “The Profit” says, “Bad inventory management can bankrupt your business; if you have inventory just sitting around for years, it's just like burning money." Despite its high importance there are still 46% of SME’s in the US that do not manage their inventory. And 83% of businesses that do, suffer from stocking problems. This is because existing solutions require big investment in both time and money. They are based on manual data entry and software estimations which are prone to error.

Smart Inventory System is a combination of hardware devices and software services. It is the first inventory management solution to integrate a weight sensor. Our shelf like device is able to measure and ...

The SMART SEA RESCUE WATERCRAFT is a programmable GPS controlled autonomous rescue speed boat. It may alternatively be configured as a self driving hydrofoil, catamaran, or amphibious hovercraft. It can be preprogrammed and sent unmanned to a GPS location to return rescue a navy sailor, downed Air Force pilot, an accident survivor in a life jacket, disabled boat, life boat, or raft, or to a remote island to return rescue stranded destitute people in danger. It can deliver food, water, medicine, clothing, flashlights, tools, or other necessary supplies through dangerous waters to people in need. It is equipped with computer controlled collision avoidance systems via radar, ultrasound, infrared, and / or visible optical camera systems which override control of ...

In these days, wars and battles have significantly been increasing, and due to this reason, science and engineering are playing a pivotal role in the military field. New inventions and machines are appearing very frequently. More importantly, most of these machines are unmanned drones and robots. The reason of this is that these machines reduce loss of human life, and they are more efficient than humans. For this reason, the superpower countries have allocated tremendous amount of money for robotics and drones fields. For example, most of the U.S air strikes are done by unmanned drones. Plus, there are new prototypes emerging of unmanned tanks and armored vehicles. Finally and most importantly, our country is now having a fierce ...

Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease each year.
The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation estimates that more than 400,000 people in the United States and about 2.5 million people around the world have MS. These patients with different level of abilities need different assistive technologies to improve their quality of life. In addition to that, there are multiple research projects going on to increase the abilities of soldiers, athletes and workers.

We believe that augmenting humans with smart general purpose, wearable robotics gives them the opportunity to interact with their environment in a much more sophisticated manner.

We have developed the first general purpose assistive platform called "The 3rdArm" which can be used to restore lost functions or add functionality ...

An oil spill is the release of a liquid petroleum hydrocarbon into the environment, especially marine areas, due to human activity, and is a form of pollution, sometimes even causing deaths of life forms on big water areas. It usually takes months, or even years to liquidate the results of the oil spills.

The working principle of the automatic oil spill cleaner is similar to the iRobot's one, which is popular in the modern homes. The automatic oil spill cleaner is a robotic submarine with strong pumps, that enter both oil and water, and water separator filter, that are responsible for separating oil from clean water. After the separating, the clean water is pumped by water strong pumps, and ...

This new approach of tattoo power supply can easily eliminate the conventional cross-contamination in the typical tattoo power supply where the touch is mandatory to adjust the output power. By using the magnetic bracelet, all control of the power supply is made touchless. In addition, the sensorless RPM control is performed and guarantees the good performanceof machine ...

Nowadays many people are annoyed by the car horns because sometimes they can be so loud that they influence people’s normal work or study. Sadly, we still haven’t got any related policy to supervise the use of the car horn. The drivers can press the horn at any time and place. Some of them may even refit the car horn to make their horns louder. Therefore, we designed this Sound Detector in order to promote the policy about car horn. As its name means, it can test the loudness of the sound and also how much long the horn is used. If the sound is too loud or the time is too long, the camera on it will automatically ...
