This radar imager is based on new COTS microwave based hardware being developed by chip circuit and board developers using COTS hardware being developed currently. The unit consists of a droid display device with USB cord and WI FI radio board with fairly good computing capability already developed and in use by various vendors and an 18 element radar board connected to it, also a COTS device developed by another vendor.
All of these things are placed into an enclosure to make it easier to handle as well as protecting it from the weather. There is extra room in ...

Safecity is a platform that crowdsources personal stories of sexual harassment and abuse in public spaces. This data which may be anonymous, gets aggregated as hot spots on a map indicating trends at a local level. The idea is to make this data useful for individuals, local communities and local administration to identify factors that causes behaviour that leads to violence and work on strategies for solutions.
Since our launch on 26 Dec 2012 we have collected over 10,000 stories from over 50 cities in India, Kenya, Cameroon, Nepal, Nigeria and Trinidad & Tobago.
Safecity aims to ...

CubeTech are load sensors for public transportation, especially buses, designed to alert the driver about the number of passengers in that bus. Installed under the seat, it was made for the convenience of the driver to make sure all the passengers are there. Compared to the conventional method, where the driver has to walk along the bus to count the passengers, CubeTech offer an easier way for the driver and less time-consuming. When the passengers had their seat, the signal will appear on the driver’s screen indicating that the seat had been occupied.
A load cell is a ...

CORROSION UNDER INSULATION is an extremely common occurrence and makes up a huge chunk of pipeline maintenance costs. Even though we know about CUI and understand what causes it, the struggle remains to prevent corrosion and mitigate its effects. The corrosion occurs as a result of moisture build-up under the insulation. Without a way to evaporate, the moisture eats away at the metal parts of a piece of equipment. This could be the actual pipe, the hardware, or even the jacketing. But this device will work to detect the corrosion very easily and effectively.
This concept or solution ...

Data Center critical infrastructure can now be better protected by making use of Government-funded research for guided missiles
WHAT IS IT FOR?
It improves reliability and reduces failures and data-loss in Data Centers, the infrastructure upon which depends the functioning of our modern civilization.
It is to be applied to the galvanized steel structures supporting the raised floors, the floor-panels and cable-trays above or beneath, and the racks of electronics that store all the information in Data Centers. It will captivate the zinc metal whiskers that unpredictably grow from all galvanized steel surfaces, as well as those that may be present ...
• Globally, 1 in 3 women experience some physical or sexual violence in their lifetime. 4 billion people globally lack access to a centralized emergency response system
• Though 90% of such crimes are not even reported, there is a high likelihood that we all know someone who has had this experience
• With more women entering the workforce globally and traveling, their safety trumps everything else
• Women shouldn’t have to compromise on their ambitions, aspirations, and lifestyle, for something as simple as safety
• At DAZL, our goal is to leverage the Internet of Things technology, and ...

This project sought to design and prototype a device and its software interface for applications like bicycle tracking within a university campus. The Wi-Fi tracker is a simple, portable, powered unit that logs data to a remote server enabling a tracking process to be executed. This design harnesses the Internet of Things concept using the ESP8266, a low cost, low power Wi-Fi chip, the heart of the device.
1. Difficulty finding the bicycles
2. Difficulty planning to use bicycles along the route to class, work or any other place on & off campus
3. No way of tracking the bicycles
Almost everybody uses or is affected by the use of roads. Road networks facilitate transport services. In most countries, roads are the major transport mode.While driver errors such as speeding, distracted driving and drunk driving are among the leading causes of automobile accidents. Dangerous conditions also arise from the poor physical condition of a road and its surroundings. This project aims on detection, identification of problem faced by drivers, cyclist, pedestrians etc. and transmission of that data to maintenance authorities. The project intelligently uses GPS, sensor and image processing technique.
1. To develop a system which can detect ...
Abnormal heart rate or rhythm (dysrhythmia) is a common medical disorder worldwide. In its severe form it causes about 600,000 deaths annually. The ultimate treatment for this life threatening condition is ablation (burning) of the tissue that generates the chaotic electrical activity inside the heart. MAZE procedure is a common ablation method, performed during open heart surgery using readiofrequency energy or cryotherapy (freezing) to destroy the abnormal tissue in the heart.
Our device uses radiofrequencey energy to perform the ablation without a need for open heart surgery. The device reaches inside the heart through the groin vessels, ...

The JDI-100/200 series is a ruggedized inclinometer using digital output and full temperature compensation across all measuring ranges which enables the unit to perform to 0.005° accuracy. This means that engineers can rely on a high precision tilt sensor that will not be easily influenced by various temperature changes within its environment.
The JDI-100/200 series utilizes MEMS technology to measure tilt in either single or dual-axis configurations. Standard measuring ranges span to ±60° with a digital resolution of 0.0001° and RS485 interface output. It also includes a galvanically isolated single DC power input and an integrated temperature sensor. ...
