We know that tropical cyclone are created from warming of a large area of ocean and for this reason, moist air over the ocean rises upward from near the surface. Because this air moves up and away from the surface (this is called low air pressure), air from surrounding areas with high pressure becomes, and warm and moist and rises too.

I think that, if we can do down the temperature of low pressure area (at center/eye of low pressure) as soon as and if the procedure is possible among the low air pressure center so that ,rate of evaporation is same of surrounding area and flow of cold air is stop from surrounding area of low pressure , ...

ATOM-1.0 Humanoid Robot Vision.

It is important in today’s modern age of technology to have pioneers push forward to reach greater achievements. The pioneer must have a vision, determination and not be easily discouraged by lack of project funding or criticism. Without great thinkers whose vision was before their time, where would our current technology stand.

Facing great challenges of pioneering new technologies can be a very painstaking process, not to mention the criticism that is usually part of what the imaginative pioneer must face from peers. One such pioneer is Dan Mathias, a Roboticist whose background entails Engineering degree in the disciplines of Industrial Electronics, Robotics and Control systems and 35+ years of building robots.

The ATOM 1.0 humanoid project is ...

Technology description: The aim of the augmented associate is to provide an inexpensive, non-intrusive confirmation of task success to assembly associates. It comprises a wearable sensor system that collects and measures multiple sensors (i.e. sound, movement, force) and through sensor-fusion, predicts whether the assembly process was successful and feeds this information back to the associate and stores information for future data-driven analytics of the manufacturing process and digital twin. Currently the system comprises two sound sensors (one located near the thumb and forefinger and another located near the shoulder), real-time clock, 9-axis IMU, flexible force sensors for the thumb and first three fingers, and integrated microcontroller. Current work includes industrialized finger-force sensors and wearable processing-pack that ingests data from ...

270 times of climbing by a tapper reduced to two climbs- to install the device and remove 90 days later. Productivity multiplies by minimum 18-fold.

Tapping neera/toddy from the coconut trees are doing manually in every coconut cultivating country. The basic procedures are common in all regions such as beating the inflorescence for stimulation, cutting of its apex, collection to a pot. Though neera and its value added products creates 7-8 times more income to the farmers than the income from nut production, tappers have to put in backbreaking effort to tap the neera out from an inflorescence. Most of the trained tappers were discontinued and moved to much easier job. In my state Kerala (a state of India ...

BrainE:
The focus here is the construction of a human free device (Robot) to operate on various surgical platforms so as to eliminate human errors, save time, reduce the chances of failures etc. and provide a leakage-free surgery to the patients. The project focused on automation of surgical tasks and reducing the time needed to perform teleoperated surgery beyond our planet.

The team has designed and build an autonomous robotic surgery system to overcome this communication issue and deal with relieving pressure in removing a blood clot. The team evaluated four design alternatives and chose the above multi-tool rotating end effector design approach because it scored highest in terms of tool change, the speed of operation and cost on ...

The proposed system is to save life from the bore wells. Small children without noticing the hole dug for the bore well slip in and get trapped. Since the holes are dug too deep it is quite impossible to save life. The fire force and medical team find it difficult to rescue children due to unknown levels of humidity, temperature and oxygen in the depths of the bore well. Rescue work can be a long drawn affair lasting close to thirty hours. The time taken is long enough to kill a precious life. Even if rescued the child may die due to injuries sustained. This has created an open challenge to the field of medicine, rescue and the whole ...

The fact that I developed a prototype of 3D printer plastic, ceramic and metal objects breakthrough advanced Roll Powder Sintering (RPS) additive technology. The potential RPS micron and submicron accuracy, more predictable mechanical properties of the manufactured objects, the performance is higher the best world analogues ...

Connectors with wire sealing were developed for use in applications where waterproof protection and rugged construction are required. Waterproof protection is achieved by means of a wire seal which is inserted onto the wire and crimped simultaneously with the insulation support of the contact. Sometimes due to the design of the part not all cavities are fulfilled with crimped contacts and on those cases a cavity plug is inserted (plastic pin that has the function of waterproof the system). The main constraint related to those cavity plugs is the insertion of them that is still being done manually. With the current challenges on industry to go miniaturize, this is becoming hard work. Based on that we had the idea ...

Biomimetic hands are products which involve a sync between the action of natural fingers with the artificial fingers. In this project they are used in measuring the dimensions of objects for cognition and manipulation possibilities. The methodology involved in this project is the use of NiTi springs (SMA, Shape Memory Alloy based) which get back their original shape when heated beyond the Phase transition temperature. Using these materials, the joint angles of the artificial hand could be altered.

Proximity sensors are attached to the biomimetic hand’s fingers. These sensors are useful in avoiding the obstacles located in its environment. Laser sensors are placed at strategic points to measure the dimensions of the object. Small cameras are also placed over ...

Our mission is to revolutionize manufacturing across industries with our innovative technology for additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, of metals. This patented process is unique and differs from others because there is no melting of the metal. Because it can be scaled to manufacture very large parts, it will open up new possibilities for the use of additive manufacturing at sizes never before seen. This is the future of additive manufacturing at scale.

The patented MELD™ process is innovative because it is the first non-melt-based process to make metal and metallic parts at large scale in the industry. Its flexibility for material inputs and for process uses is unmatched. With a new commercially available machine, users can do more ...
