Need of energy is constantly increasing because of increase in population and industrialization globally. Depletion of fossil fuel, increase in pollution level and imbalance in the ecological level of the earth, etc. cause researchers to think of alternative solutions to fossil fuel. Biodiesel derived from crops may be replacement of petroleum-derived fuel used for transport and power generation without adversely affecting the crisis of food and also keeping the environment clean. This research talks about algae cultivation, process for algae to biofuel conversion, conceptual design and general layout of slow pyrolysis process. B40 gives approximate 54% mechanical efficiency compared to ...

In the history of transportation, electricity has always replaced fossil fuels when a commercially viable technology was available. Historically, major manufacturers have invested in electric trains and cars and it’s clear that electric aircraft are next. However, none of the current solutions for electric planes provide engines that are adapted for large scale commercial flights. Whilst "Electric aircraft are a key element in our research for the future of aviation" as Airbus' CEO Tom Enders outlines, most efforts have focused on the classic "electromagnetic" engine for its incomparable efficiency. Yet current technologies do not offer sufficient power density for ...

The Major Problems:
➤~70% of fuel is wasted as heat in conventional engines/power-plants/waste-to-energy-systems which don’t combust the water/aquifers/air polluting fuel completely while also producing strong green-house NOx emissions. Fuel usage efficiency can be doubled without any emissions/pollutants. [CO2 is not a pollutant but a valuable resource].
➤Most plastic/trash/etc. is buried or dumped in oceans which pollute water/aquifers/air. 8MM tons of plastic winds up in the ocean yearly. This debris can be used as fuel for vehicles & electrical energy generation via our pollution-free, carbon-negative gasification and for useful industrial heat including large-scale water purification/desalination.
For the foreseeable ...

Large wind blade surfaces embedded with flexible Solar Panel can generate more energy out of the same system. For example, Shrouded design type with flexible solar panel has been shown in the diagram. Depending up on the area of wind turbine blade either horizontal or vertical or shrouded, the same system can generate more power output.
Also, such systems’ tower can be installed in the shallow seabed. A fixed propeller can be attached in the tower with gears, while gears provide the ability to rotate. It is to harvest wave energy. This amalgamated design can harvest solar, wind & ...

Considering the increasing number of people asking for the use of a car - especially in emerging markets - my work for this little sporty coupe has taken my engagement to realize a composition of shape and surfaces can be best to print in aluminium, steel, or simply plastic marterials. You have to consider in fact that current cars of that category have a number of "facets", onto the body to keep practically impossibile to join to an easy and above all, easy to repair bodywork. For emerging market o the other hand there is a strong request of "emotional ...
The present proposal addresses the following problems specific to developing/underdeveloped countries like India with a large population of illiterate/semi-literate geriatric patients.
The system envisions a patient friendly medicine packaging system, especially catering to geriatric patients who need regular medicines in take in large numbers throughout the day. Some medicines have requirements that they need to be consumed before or after food intake.
1. Difficult to understand prescriptions
2. Illiterate/semi-literate population
3. Danger of expired /unnamed medicines due to medicines being cut out of strips
4. MISSING DOSAGES
5. Medicine requirements during travel
6. Inability ...
I am proposing a product that will potentially solve the problem of occupational related injuries and fatalities.
In the United States, there were approximately 2.9 million reported non-fatal occupational injuries and illnesses and 4836 recorded occupational related fatalities in 2015.1 More than half of the cases of injuries required days away from work to recover or job transfers.1 The rate of occupational related injuries and fatalities indicate that the traditional methods of evaluating and controlling occupational hazards are not effective. My proposed product will provide a novel and innovative method of assessing workplace hazards. Consequently, the product will ...
In most of the under developed nations, access to basic health care is scarce. A heater is an indispensable device for many applications, especially for medical purposes. As such, a simple and easy to make heater from readily available materials becomes valuable equipment to help alleviate the human health problems. An ultra low cost (total cost including materials and manufacturing is less than a dollar per heater) heater from readily available materials like paper/cellulose acetate sheet and a pencil was designed and fabricated. Manually, using high graphite contained pencil; paper/cellulose surface was arbitrarily coated by applying numerous pencil strokes ...
Andro-Aqua offers a smart aquarium which will be connected to our app and can be controlled through the app with the app providing important alerts. Through this Andro-Aqua one can feed their important fishes without even being there so now you don't have to worry about feeding your fishes when you are not at home as Andro-Aqua will do it for you. Moreover all the important details of your precious fishes and aquarium will be uploaded to the cloud like temperature , turbidity , water level and filtration mechanism with the dirty water going out of the outlet and ...
Animatronics refers to the use of robotic devices to emulate a human or an animal, or bring lifelike characteristics to an otherwise inanimate object.
Unique part of this project is,HC 05 BLUETOOTH MODULE IS EMPLOYED FOR WIRELESS TRANSMISSION OF SIGNAL UNLIKE OTHER ANIMATRONIC PROJECTS WHICH USES XBEE MODULE. HC05 is cheaper as compared to that of Xbeee module. This is first time this project is madewhich is based on Bluetooth module and it is not availalbe on internet.
In this project , slave part(3D printed prosthetic hand) replicates the movement of control glove(master part).
