Machinery/Automation/Robotics - 2017
Recycling some products becomes somewhat hit and miss because of volumes and large enterprises such as McDonalds make conscious efforts to improve their recycling issues.
This idea is based around that restaurant's colorful packaging and is as applicable to other places with similar disposal issues.
It is a high tech semi automated proposition which (over time) can migrate to full automation as the technologies involved mature with the use of the system.
Basically adaptation of machine vision technology detects the color of the product in the first instance and operates gates which segregate material by color into collector bins ...
This project is developed to enable Online Monitoring of Industrial Equipment allowing the Industrialists to optimize their working process accordingly. Moreover this project is in line with the upcoming concept of IoT i.e. Internet Of Things which focuses to bring every gadget on the planet online. The software used to view data is MonkeyMonitor which allows the user some powerful tools in accordance to the data.
The heart of this project is a Raspberry Pi Model 2 which is an ARMv7 based Linux processor which clocks at 900MHz and has a Quad-Core Broadcom BCM2386 processor and 1GB SDRAM. For ...

I’d like to present to you a concept that’s been cooking in my head for the past few decades. In R. Buckminster Fuller’s “critical path” he presents and illustration of Manhattan island with a huge geodesic dome covering much of the borough.
Bucky pointed to a number of reasons why such mega-structures are desirable. He was also quick to point out, however, the difficulties humanity would have building such structures using then-current construction technology.
Human construction technology remains mired in the past. We continue to build using traditional, waddle-and-daub, tinker-toy construction methodologies – only applying new materials as they’ve ...

Our solution revolves around a Server Controlled Car that can be controlled from any part of the world via a simple internet connection. It has an on board camera that transmits live stream to the user over the internet. The entire car can be controlled via simple web browser and a steering wheel controller therefore giving greater realism to the end user. Also users can book time slots to access the server based car. Also multiple such cars can be controlled on a single server using our developed algorithm. We have developed a driver system ...
Traditionally, drive elements like gears, pulleys, sprockets and similar devices are affixed to rotating shafts using a variety of different methods. Setscrews or shaft keys are the most preferable; however when intermittent and reversing motion is required in a system, performance will worsen over time.
Numerous fasteners are made with several parts where a series of screws are needed for mounting.
All of these methods will satisfy requirements but they are costly, require time for installation and need trained workers to perform required mounting/tightening force. Many locking devices are bulky and heavy.
New fasteners ...
It is an highly sensitive device for detecting the explosives and its traces. It is a portable device and it can detect the explosives traces for longer range. For protection and security from terrorist attacks, it can be highly preferable to identify the explosives and it's traces even in a huge crowd. Sensors with high range and sensitivity are used to have best performance. Highly optimized for best ...
Our team has been investigating opportunities to get compute cycles when they are cheapest, either through an innovative sensor system that watches clouds, or a clever scraping of PUC utility websites to ramp compute resources up when electricity is inexpensive.
This summer we are testing a system that will allow participants in the trial effort to attach compute resources on-supply and often hands-off (asynchronous, asymmetric, and automatic). If you have a job you want to run, and you are not in any hurry, you will get it for “free” while the sun is shining.
We have a number of subprototypes that ...
This solution is based on this theory that the swinging problems are only created due to flexible wire and if the wire is inflexible then there will be no chance of swinging problem.
Mechanism: As per sketch there will be a plastic tube having diameter of 3 to 5 centimeters and the wires will be attached with this tube permanently. This tube will be closed from one end and second end will be connected with an air pump. A line of electromagnetic coil will be attached on the upper surface of this tube. This electromagnetic coil line will work ...
An economical robotic book scanner capable of converting books of any size into JPEGs without destroying the binding.
Scanners used now-a-days requires an operator to manually scan each and every page of a book. This seems irritating and is time-taking. Also, digitizing books has been an issue tackled by companies to allow people to read off Kindles and iPads rather than the traditional paperback. Yet, not much effort has been made into the invention of an automatic book scanner for consumers. This project seeks to determine a cost-effective approach to robotic book scanning to create JPEGs from physical books. ...
