We started looking into the toughest problems in Nigeria. Heath has been a main problem here.
Talking about health we thought of using technical means in our field of study in trashing such problems. We considered the availability of materials in solving such problems and the gravity of the health problem to be solved, so we concluded by looking into heart-related illness and with some body temperature abnormality.
We came up with idea of a soundness glove system.
The device measures the human pulse and body temperature simultaneously. Is a very user-friendly device. It consists of an LCD ...
The Underwater Electricity Generator works on principle of transforming Pressure and Kinetic Energy of water into Electrical Energy by rotary motion, which is first of its kind.
- Target of 8000 GW
- Apprehend Pressure and Kinetic Energy.
- Continuous power generation irrespective of weather and load variations.
- Something new and unique, which shall be powerful, efficient and useful for at-least 200 years.
- Primary influence is of Pressure Energy acting on large hydrofoil areas at varying depths.
- As waves and tides have periodic occurrence of ‘2’ every 24 hours, hence termed secondary influence, ...
The AS7262 / AS7263 (referred to as the AS726x) from ams are the world’s first cost-effective multispectral sensor-on-chip solutions, opening the way for a new generation of spectral analyzers for consumer and industrial applications.
The AS726x devices enable chip-scale spectral analysis, driving new spectral sensing innovation for both industrial and consumer applications. The dramatic reduction in the size and cost of spectral sensing solutions brings the lab to the sample for an incredible variety of applications from food safety and product authentication, to routine testing that can better protect both our health and our environment.
The multispectral sensors employ a ...
At Bansen Labs we are harnessing the power of technology to enhance ability, access, and inclusion for people with disabilities. Our first product, Xogo, is a universally accessible technology adapter. People with disabilities use Xogo to connect to any consumer technology they want.
There are one billion people worldwide with disabilities. On the surface, each person’s needs are drastically different, and a highly fragmented market of niche solutions exists to meet specific needs. However, a core set of overarching challenges--social inclusion, independence, and technological access remain unaddressed. We are empowering our customers with an elegant solution to ...
According to the EPA, every weekend about 54 million Americans mow their lawns, using more than 15,000,000 gallons of gas (that’s more the 800 million annually) and producing tons of air polluting volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides. More than 325,000 gallons (that’s 17,000,000 annually) are spilled just filling them up – that’s more than what was spilled by the Exxon Valdez disaster.
Studies have shown that one gas mower running for an hour emits the same amount of pollutants as eight new cars driving 55 miles in an hour.
Replacing 500 gas mowers with electric or non-powered mowers would ...
In India thousands of railways travel everyday from one destination to another. The engine is the most important device of railway and it works on the principle of conversion of heat energy into mechanical energy.
A large amount of heat is dissipated through the fins from the engine when it starts and runs. The idea is to utilize this heat energy to generate electricity that may be used to lightening, cooling fan, charging of mobile/laptops and other appliances.
The idea of energy efficient railway for transportation seems to naturally introduce the concept of using waste ...
We are well aware of the scenario of crimes against women all over the world. Wouldn’t it be better for women if they could make their family aware of any problem at the time it is happening by just pushing a button? Imagine if there was something which could enable others to view the current situation you are going through. This project aims at helping a woman in a difficult situation by letting her family get an idea of her whereabouts and the situation she is currently facing.
In this project, we will be using a separate hardware ...
My design is based on a laser sail but with a laser and a mirror attached and another stationary mirror. The stationary mirror reflects the laser back into the other mirror which reflects the laser back into the stationary mirror and so on and so forth propelling the non-stationary mirror and laser. What makes my design novel is the laser and a mirror are incorporated into the thruster. Whereas similar designs have either a mirror or laser with one stationary and the other moving. My design has both the laser and a mirror moving with a second stationary mirror. ...
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 SPARC ...
ZERO-WASTE ZERO-CARBON BUSINESS-MODEL (ZW-ZC-BM)
[A Quadruple Impact Development (QID) paradigm that simultaneously answers the twin-problems of Global Warming and Poverty (GWP)]
THE PROBLEM: Global Warming and Poverty (GWP) are corollary in that both are simultaneously increasing due to the same basic cause: Wastage and Over consumption by the minority who control almost all human resources and governance. The disparity is such that about 15% of the population enjoy 85% of world GDP; and the balance 85% are able to enjoy just 15%. Further as this disparity is continually increasing due to the “richer” class wanting to overs end and ...
