DTI’s Next Generation Autostereoscopic Glasses-Free 3D LCD Displays Will Make Air Travel Safer
In the very near future, pilots will receive better information from DTI autostereoscopic instrumentation and navigation displays. According to NASA, this will result in an 18% improvement in pilot situational awareness.
In addition, aerial refueling operations will become faster and more efficient because refueling boom operators will be able to more easily position their booms into an aircraft fuel receptacle and air traffic controllers will have a better intuitive understanding and greater command of their airspace because they will see air traffic on their displays with high-fidelity depth ...
In this project we have focused on improving the steering response in automobiles using a rack and pinion assembly. The main purpose is to design and manufacture a new arrangement of rack and pinion which enhances the maneuverability. Rack and pinion mechanism being compact and light package with kinematically stiffer characteristics is commonly employed on cars. A virtual rack and pinion steering assembly can be created using software like CAD, SOLIDWORKS and ANSYS. This implementation on the mechanism ultimately leads to a more sensitive and effective steering experience.
In our design we have provided two sets of teeth ...
The proposed system represents a novel idea for efficient disposal of space debris present in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Our system is designed to tackle space debris of the size in the range of 10cm. The main aim of this project is to deflect these medium sized space debris towards the Earth’s atmosphere which will itself serve as a medium for incineration of the debris.
The main body is a modified form of frustum of a cone. The inner surface of the cone is coated with a thick layer of Sorbothane, which is a synthetic visco-elastic urethane ...
Many revolutionary developments have taken place in the field of tire technology, from Dunlop tire to modern tubeless tires. Everyone is focused on improving durability, better traction, fuel economy etc. Beside all these developments, tire blowout is still a common problem and it is responsible for 50,000 accidents per year only in India. There is no solution to prevent accidents after tire blowout. In the United States alone, DOT estimates that under inflated tires waste 2 billion US gallons of fuel each year.
Our system minimizes the chances of tire blowout by maintaining optimum pressure automatically and further ...
This invention relates to a method for advertising the baking products by producing visible inscriptions such as drawings, words, slogans or inscriptions, the method being intended for the advertising industry for the large-scale engraving of bakery products in the promotion of any sign Products or names of companies in any field of activity, these bakery products wearing the respective marks free of charge, without changing the initial price of the bakery products. The advertising method for bakery products is to create at least one form or a document on at least part of a consumer product based on grain ...

Aero Vitae is a system to solve the interconnected issues of air quality and water purification. We propose using a cascade system of organic digesters and aeroponics to directly dispose of city waste water and airborne particulate. Indirect benefits will be a local cooling effect and oxygen enrichment.
The first stage will be similar to normal water treatment, the separation of the solids from the waste water. The solids will first be treated in a high efficiency methane digester, which will be used to provide a high grade fuel for the facility, and general electricity. After ...

AEROPTER CONCEPT CONFIGURATION: a lifting surface concept suitable for STOL/VTOL requirements.
Derives its lifting force from a fluid principle of force amplification referred to the COANDA EFFECT a rather complex phenomena of jet stream deflection and augmentation.
The primary features of the AEROPTER are shown in cross section (figure 1). The jet stream (primary flow) leaves the plenum chamber through a long thin rectangular nozzle at low temperature and medium pressure. A low static pressure region, by virtue of configuration design, is initiated by the primary air flow leaving the nozzle, which entrains ambient air through the porous ...
Playing music is an activity enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. Studies have shown that playing music at any age can enhance the mind, improve social life, builds self-confidence, teaches patience and discipline, enhances creativity, reduces stress, and is a lot of fun.
Whether playing purely for enjoyment or professionally, learning to play well is often frustrating and physically challenging.
What is needed is a universal musical instrument that has familiar fingering, is versatile, expressive, portable, great sounding, connects to the internet, affordable, easy to play, and easy on the body. One such solution is a wind ...

This proposal closes the gap between old fashioned airplanes and new generation high tech super planes. Main focus is on utilizing affordable standard technique and the latest results from aerodynamic R&D. With this approach production and operating costs will be significant reduced.
For environmental aspects the engines will be designed as a single spool gas-turbine in combination with recuperated turbine technology.
Due to wing design and engine layout adaption to Hybrid and H2 fuel technology, this plane can play a key role in practicable green air ...
It is said that by 2020 there will be nearly 50 billion Internet of Things devices connected to the Internet. But has anyone thought about how to power all of them? And, even better, how to do so in an environmentally-friendly way?
We are used to seeing, especially in some regions, an enormous number of bridges, streets and building. Every year they are growing in number and in age. Does anyone ever considered the consequence of this? Structural aging and external factor (e.g. earthquakes) can bring bridges and building to catastrophic damage causing dramatic consequences and enormous loss of money ...
