1 Nature of technology/product. The HI-Light reactor being developed at Cornell University is a solar-thermocatalytic “reverse combustion” technology that enables the conversion of CO2 and water to methanol and other high-value hydrocarbons. The innovative claim of the HI-Light reactor design derives from the concurrent optimization of light-coupling and catalyst availability. In the HI-Light design, the tubes are internal light-guiding rods with specially designed scattering surfaces that enable deep and efficient penetration of the solar radiation captured from a parabolic light concentrator into the reactor. The reagents and products flow through the shell outside the rods. The optical energy focused ...
In the past decade, robotic systems have been used with increased popularity for explosive ordnance (EOD) missions. Advances in robotic technology have made it possible for robots to perform functions previously only possible by human workers wearing a blast suit. The primary advantage of using robotic systems for explosive ordinance disposal/diffusion is reduced risk to humans. The bomb diffusing robot which will help to improve defence of our nation from terrorist, suicide bombers and other such activities. The bomb detectors and disposal system works only with the presence of experts. But this way of analyzing takes more time and ...
Computers, cell phones, and tablets are becoming an essential part of modern life. These devices are usually referred to as Video Display Terminals or VDT for short. Hundreds of millions of the lower and middle class Americans and people of the developing countries spend hours with their eyes focused at VDTs. This process tends to be mandatory because it’s often associated with their jobs. Very often these people carry a smart phone or a tablet thus adding to the total number of hours of using a computer device. These facts caused an increase of the percentage of people experiencing ...

The Concept of the System [Photo 1] is to orientate a solar collector and a Polyhedral Structure [Photo 2] to face the Sun with “Azimuthal” tracking of 270 deg and “ Altitudinal” 90 deg. *
The concept is based on the idea of combining a signal indicating the direction of the sun rays, within one solid angle of “quarter hemisphere” [ sensors fixed on ground], with a signal indicating, similarly quarterly, the relative angular displacement (or error) between the sun rays’ direction and the tracker’s orientation Azimuthally” [sensors rotating about vertical axis, with systems “Azimuthal” tracking and ...

Although agriculture is being developed and nowadays there is already equipment on the market to help agricultural production, there are still many limitations on the production of small berries such as blueberry and goji berries where everything is being done manually.
The harvesting of these small fruits is done manually and the separation by size is still carried out manually by the agricultural operator, as to be commercialized there are several rules already in place that determine the cost depending on the size.
Our idea is to develop equipment that allows the separation of berries by ...

Novastruct Ronin Metal Masters Technology™ is a patented sheet metal folding technology which permits the design of components using a wide spectrum of sheet/plate metal materials to fold into complex and highly precise 3D shapes for structural and non-structural applications. This advanced technology is characterized by the unique definition of parametric bending features tied directly to the component material properties and gauge thickness, in order to generate high precision bend lines requiring low force equipment and zero tooling investment. These patterns are fabricated directly into the flat 2D sheet blanks using a variety of standard metal cutting and stamping ...
Our objective is to reduce morbidity in Obesity and Sleep Apnea with a new therapeutic wearable device.
We are developing two safe and well known technologies but in a same device. For the first time ever, we are using an already patented wearable device with pulseoximetry and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.
It has the great and unique advantage that it makes the wearer react by himself. We are changing the way we monitor patients, both as in and out patients. It is easy to use cause is a wearable. You can use wherever you go.
The obese patient will use ...

One of the most commonly employed technologies of additive manufacturing is fused deposition modeling (FDM). FDM that employs polymer as the based material has proven to be a powerful method in rapid prototyping. Most of the FDM 3D printer feed stock material is Polylactic Acid (PLA), Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS), Nylon and etc. These limited choices of material for FDM printing had limited the option for engineers to create an object with a blend of different materials to create something unique where the object is being optimized not only in terms of shape but also the used of different materials to ...

Modern traction control systems typically rely on friction in the form of brakes, clutches, or built-in torque bias ratios in order to mitigate wheel slip. However, under certain conditions, traction control systems may not be able to apply sufficient friction to control a suddenly slipping wheel. In addition, they may not respond fast enough to prevent the vehicle from losing its forward momentum. For these reasons, locking differentials, or lockers are generally preferred by off-roading enthusiasts. However, the operation of lockers requires special knowledge and can lead to rapid tire wear or driveline damage if left engaged.

The proposed idea is based on an intelligent bathroom mirror on which the health-related body parameters such as Blood Pressure, Heart Rate, SpO2 level, Weight, Height, Body Mass Index (BMI), Body Temperature, Room Temperature, Bathroom Tap Water Temperature etc. will be displayed in real time.
The daily routine of every person is started with the fresh up in the bathroom. The proposed idea is to make an intelligent mirror which is linked with the different sensors placed in the floor tile which is fixed exactly at the front of the mirror. As the person will enter in the bathroom and ...
