A new patented NASA technology has the potential to utilize recent advances in Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFIDs) combined with smart software to create an electronic firefighter evacuation trail and fire safety information location system. The trail, with associated capabilities specified by the invention, can be followed out of a burning building even if interrupted by changing fire conditions. The communicating array of sensors created by the invention can monitor local temperatures along the trail, and through inter-communication, provide an information lifeline back to a fire chief. The invention also provides an approach for passive and active RFID sensors ...
Although India is the world’s second largest fruit and vegetable producer, it is estimated 18-30% is wasted. 20% of this happens in the marketplace due to heat, pests and sun spoilage. Only 10% of fruit and vegetables are refrigerated any time before sale.
In Gujarat, on av. the temperature is 34°C and the humidity is 40% (excluding monsoon season). These, paired with constant wind from the ocean, makes it a perfect area for an evaporation cooling product.
The cool-crate is a modern take on the traditional pot in pot cooler that uses evaporation heat flow to cool contents. This product ...

An evaporative cooling tower is a heat exchanger where transformation of heat takes place from circulating water to the atmosphere. The warm water from the condenser is taken as an inlet water to the cooling tower and it is allowed to flow through the nozzles. As it falls down across baffles or louvers, the water is broken into small droplets. Simultaneously air is drawn in through the air inlet louvers provided at the base of the tower and then this air travels upward through the tower in the opposite direction of water flow. In this process a small portion ...
I want to create a ring that will consist of solar panels and the ring will be adjusted outside the atmosphere of Earth and in a such a manner that the ring will have the ring just at its center. The ring will have solar panels situated in it and fixed with turntable joints and an that they remain lateral as well as radially outwards like arrangement whenever one required. The main problem is the meteors that can strike it so I have ray guns in it and also the radially outward like position of panels when required can ...
Globally the world is challenged with, but not limited to, the following issues: energy shortage, environmental (waste management, global warming, GHG), funding for energy projects, desertification and deforestation. The most critical challenge is how to develop capacity and source funding to deal with these issues for national growth and development. This innovative technique would proffer possible positive solutions to these issues. Various ways exist for conventional cooking using firewood, sawdust, kerosene (paraffin oil), gas, hot plates, microwave and solar as heat sources. Except for solar cookers, the level of direct or indirect combustion releases carbon emissions into the atmosphere. ...
Curedan is a smart dustbin which converts organic waste to electricity. This organic waste is converted to electricity via microbial fuel cells. This electricity is then transferred to a safer place and then be distributed to places with low electricity power.
Curedan has a screen which shows an animation of the house being lit up when garbage is deposited (in other words, showing that electricity has been supplied to them). This encourages the user to deposit garbage in the dustbin itself. It will keep a score of how much garbage is deposited for each individual as a ...
This idea solves the problem of hardening steel surfaces. It is applied to flat surfaces or cylindrical surfaces ready to be hardened by thermal methods. These areas are found in the automotive industry, aerospace, rolling stock sub-assemblies and other sectors that require hardening on thin surfaces. The novelty of my system is that on the market there are products manufactured with electronic components which are not feasible at high power. The idea I present has the advantage that it can be of large or even infinite power. Given that this idea is implemented, it can be purchased by customers ...

In developing countries, the problem of drinking water is becoming increasingly important, due to the population growth and rising living standards. Desalination of seawater and brackish water is now possible to meet the demand for potable water. The main objective of the present work is the study of a plan solar still with greenhouse effect. We have especially worked on the determination of operating characteristics and production. During the period of experimentation, different parameters have been mainly a series of measurements: solar radiation, the temperatures of different parts of the setup (internal pane of glass, internal air, and water ...

Put simply, there is not enough drinking water to go around. The causes are well known; groundwater reserves are becoming saline and contaminated, urbanisation is increasing, populations are growing and industrial activity is competing for natural water supplies. According to the World Economic Forum (WEF) a global water crisis is the greatest resource threat humanity is facing today. According to the UN, 1 billion people today do not have access to clean drinking water and by 2030 as much as half the world’s population will live in water stress.
In developing countries the combination of poor infrastructure and limited ...

Drop is a device that allows saving watre while showering. It's equipped with a thermostat that detects the temperature of the water, previously indicated with a dial, and only allows the water to come out when it has reached that temperature.
One of the objectives of the Drop project is to work alongside architects and real estate builders so we can include drop while houses and apartments are under ...
