The main objective of this Luggage Bot is to make it convenient for people to carry things and load (around) or above 5kg, especially for elders, physically challenged (Divyang), women and others who find it tough to carry heavy loads. This will be made possible by making the bot follow them instead of dragging heavy luggage. The Luggage Bot prototype which will develop will be able to follow a specific person assisting him in carrying luggage through busy areas like shopping malls, railway stations, and airports. Target following (means following only a specific person) will be achieved. Target following will be done using an ultrasonic sensor or camera module depending on feasibility.
A large amount of luggage is misplaced ...
Water misters are used to reduce the air temperature around them.
This design uses misters that can be positioned around the air intake vents on the existing HVAV condenser units at homes and businesses. The misters create cooler air. This air is drawn into the heat exchange coils. The exchange of heat with cooler air can make the HVAC system run more efficiently and can reduce power usage.
The system consists of 6 to 8 easily replaceable misters on a flexible tubing that can be spaced around the air intake vents on the HVAC unit. The one end of the tubing is connected to the mister control unit.
The control unit has a water intake connection that allows it ...
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 spare the air of:
• 212 pounds of hydrocarbons
• 1.7 pounds of nitrogen oxides
• 5.6 pounds of irritating particles
• 1,724 pounds ...
Modern hand-held devices such as smart phones and PDAs have become increasingly powerful in recent years. As mobile devices become more like PCs they will come to replace objects we tend to carry around such as checkbooks, credit cards, cameras, planners, mp3 players, etc. In short, we will be using them to accomplish our daily tasks. One application that falls into this category is maintaining your budget using my Checkbook App.
My checkbook app not only allows you to know your balance in different accounts, but also has features like make a transaction, withdrawal or deposit amount with any account. The exciting feature is the facility to transfer amount from one account to another very easily by ...
Personal Rescue Device (PRD) enabling safe jump from 300-meter height skyscraper.
This paper describes a personal protective equipment against fall safely from height of up to 300 meter (~1150 feet). After the September 11th catastrophic terror event there was a need to develop ways to rescue people in case of fire or similarly events. This entry describes a small hydraulic device consisting of a gear pump and a pressure compensated flow control valve that controls the descending speed to not higher than 2 meter/second (~6,5 feet/second) suitable to rescue people weighing up to 150 Kg.(~330 pound) jumping from heights of up to 350 meters (~1150 feet).
Basically it consists of tying belts similar to what a parachutist is using, ...
Because my wife has the use of only one arm, pushing a shopping cart, the way that they are currently designed, is almost impossible for her, especially once there are some items in the cart. In addition, there are times when the shopper is reading their shopping list or, heaven forbid, talking on their cell phone when steering a shopping cart with one hand is very difficult.
My idea is to put a steering slider in the middle of the handle that is connected to the caster wheels such that when the handle is slid to the right, the cart turns to the left and when slid to the left, the cart turns to the right. If the shopper ...
Moving home ? Tired of your lamps ? One of the most cumbersome tasks is to fix a new lamp to the wall or the ceiling.

Once the Ceiling Mount has been attached to the wall or ceiling, preferably by a professional electrician, the new lamp with the integrated Lamp Mount fits instantly into the Ceiling Mount. With a 90 degree turn until the T-shaped connectors have ...
