Auto BMS is a smartphone based baggage management system to reduce loading/unloading time at a very last moment during departures and arrivals. Airports are technologically advanced but still baggage loading/unloading is done manually by handlers. This is a time consuming operation and in case if a passenger does not show up at a very last moment baggage has to be again located and unloaded. This causes domino effect. Whole airport operation gets delayed due to a single luggage.

This concept will help to save time and money of airlines by saving loading/unloading time. Only boarding passengers and their baggage will be loaded. Passenger/customer can self decide whether to load his bag or not via mobile application and connected system. ...

Agriculture is very labor intensive field and one of the only fields where robots are not involved. Nowadays many industries are trying to reduce human labor by making robots and machines. A vision-based row guidance method is presented to guide a robot platform which is designed independently to drive through the row crops in a field according to the design concept of open architecture. Then, the offset and heading angle of the robot platform are detected in real time to guide the platform on the basis of recognition of a crop row using machine vision. And the control scheme of the platform is proposed to carry out row guidance.

Here we are designing a autonomous intelligent farming robot which ...

The easy to fly Fying Segway is a personal electric octa-copter with computer assisted stabilization. It has many uses. It can be flown manually or pre-programmed to fly autonomously navigating by GPS guidance. It can autonomously fly to any location and then be used to return rescue injured flyers & soldiers behind enemy lines, lost hikers, climbers. and flood victims.

It can go around town, fly across hills, valleys, streams. lakes, and even jump mountains. It can be an observation platform, weapon platform, supply delivery system, personal transportation vehicle, and handicapped mobility system. Two of several configurations, (A) Handlebar Control and (B) Body Tilt Control are illustrated.

In configuration (A), a man sits in a swinging chair ...

Problem Statement:
Singapore continues to see a rise in the number of elderly people with the anticipated "silver tsunami" by year 2030, when one in five people here will be aged 65 years and above. As these people age, unfortunately they will be more likely to suffer from chronic diseases and require continuous treatment. This will create a greater demand for infrastructure capacity to provide healthcare support.----> Bed Crunch

Objective:
Providing "remote care" by bringing healthcare support to homes so that patients can be treated remotely by doctors in the comfort of their homes.

Solution:
An Autonomous Health Care Robot that helps carry medical equipment, diagnostic devices and first aid kits to assist and help people in times of ...

NASA's Langley Research Center developed a deployable and stowable mechanical design for filling the cavity behind the leading-edge slat (i.e., slat cove), when it is extended upon landing an aircraft. Aerodynamic flow over an unfilled cavity typically exhibits strongly unsteady behavior that is a source of aeroacoustic noise. Conventional leading-edge slat devices for high lift are a good example of such geometric and flow conditions and are a prominent source of airframe noise. Experimental and computational results have shown that a slat-cove filler device could significantly reduce the noise produced by slat structures. The proposed structural concept will enable autonomous achievement of the desired deployed shape. The design will facilitate a clean cruise configuration with minimal weight addition to ...

Many of us remember when NASA's Spirit rover got stuck in sand on the red planet in 2009 - so have you ever wondered how rovers can safely explore the surface of a planet? Mission Control Space Services, working with the Canadian Space Agency, is developing our Autonomous Soil Assessment System (ASAS) to do just that.

The end goal of ASAS is to detect unknown hazards such as soft soil that could immobilize a planetary rover and compromise its mission. Operating in real time, the technology developed by Mission Control will increase the navigation autonomy of rovers in challenging terrain and make exploration more efficient, given that the communications delay on Mars can be up to 40 minutes. Our ...

The robotics world has reached a stage where the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) industry is very well established with thousands upon thousands of ROVs having been created and deployed since the dawn of this industry. The need for autonomy in robots and vehicles, however, is becoming more and more a prevalent issue in many situations and environments worldwide. The ability to communicate between the operator and the vehicle is one of the main factors affecting whether a vehicle is to be designed as an ROV or as an autonomous vehicle. For instance, in environments where communication with a vehicle is inhibited or not possible, autonomous control is then required as opposed to remote control. One of the environments in ...

The Seastick 1000 is designed to be an innovative product in the field of AUVs, able to dive at a depth of up to 1000 meters.

The designs are from a pen and paper and a little technical work for suspension and vehicle outer shell designs These designs are what I have envisioned, invented, and sculpted to hopefully stand out to you the viewer. The designs viewed closely may be useful to your job or business. theses are ideas I have had to follow up with the sensational AWD Butterfly the first. These designs have the interesting potential to set trends and standards in the business of automobiles. Enjoy!

Those First examples in the image windows is for a truck and convertible bodies design that are creations for the future trends that could exist. The truck cargo bed is at an incline for air flow such ...

These designs are to create the future, while maintaining mechanical engineering importance. I posted these ideas out there to get recognition of some important concepts. There is an AWD Butterfly project, in 3D CAD art, that I did for this contest in 2012; and an AWD Butterfly 2 project, that I did earlier for 2016. These are basically just Ideas, I have had over my lifespan, that I also use when I write to automotive companies as a portfolio.

First, allow me to explain the images sequentially. image 1 is of a Body/frame in one, with a closed top vehicle that folds it's suspension at the center core of the width wide wheel's wheelbase. This is a new take ...
