Automotive wiring harnesses are defined as a set of organized wires, connectors, and terminals which run throughout the entire vehicle and transmit information and electric power. Wires used in the harness have a very important role in connecting different components of the car. Each wire in the wiring harness system carries energy and an electrical signal which is used for applications, like starting the engine, power windows, the navigation system, lights, etc. The system normally has many different types of wires depending on where they will be installed, heat and cold resistance, and other important considerations. For that reason, wires are made with different materials and use different colors for insulation which for harnesses manufacturers is conducting to high ...

Wireless sensor technology offers considerable advantages for aerospace vehicles. In traditional hardwired avionics systems, sensor integration requires installation of literally tons of physical cable, resulting in significant increases in weight, development and maintenance cost, and time to make required repairs and modifications.

Despite the promise of wireless avionics systems, they have yet to gain mass adoption throughout the aerospace industry. Innovators at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center realized that the core of the issue was that any avionics system would need to be physically modified to incorporate new wireless capability.

The answer: A single universal wireless access point or “gateway” that can be reprogrammed to communicate with any wireless device. With a gateway, new wireless capability can be incorporated ...

This idea is to build a flying machine which can be anybody’s personal vehicle like a bicycle, bikes...etc. These devices will be more compact and will be designed like a skateboard which can fly. The person can float over the streets with this device. This device will be lifted with a dozen high power electric ducted fans which can produce the thrust to lift a payload of 100kg. This is build with the auto stability gyro unit so that it will be stable in any condition and very safe device to fly on.

The power system for this device will be a unique one. The difficulties in the board is the power source which needs to power a dozen ...

No matter how clean they may look, locker room floors and bathrooms are essentially teeming with bacteria and fungi, which can expose you to all sorts of nasty and contagious diseases, such as athlete's foot, plantar warts, ringworm, impetigo, and the emerging threat of the super-bug Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA). Additionally, wet and dirty floors can contaminate your clothes making changing a hassle. What is needed is a clean, quick, and convenient way to help minimize your exposure to these contagious diseases and wet floors. Consequently, “Wizemat” provides a solution to these unanswered problems.

Wizemat is an innovative mat system that provides a clean, personal surface upon which to stand when changing clothes at the gym. Its patented novel "Z" ...

A wooden lamp uses tree trunks as its truss, not including metal or concrete poles. At the same time, the project interacts with the tree movement caused by the wind or other factors. Cooperation while moving trees with a lamp in this design project is possible thanks to the ball hinges and telescopic arms.

The rims on the tree trunk would be connected with halving joint with the possibility of widening as the trunk diameter increase.

Inspiration from tree ...

TEN COMMANDMENTS OF US PATENT #5,431,606:

I. Two worm gears are series mounted.

II. The worm wheel is mounted in bearings. not rigidly mounted!

III. The input drive worm gear provides a point of locus & inital inertia.

IV. The two gear set is 94% efficient statically & dynamically it is 98%+
efficient & reduces mass & cost.

V. Never a dry start as the input drive gear resides in a lube bath.

VI. Total circular envelopment of 360 degrees.

VIIi. Triangulating constantly as three gear teeth are always meshing!

VIII. The gear set develops torque from this series gear mount.

IX, The output gear, a worm wheel, is able to adjust for nominal functions from thermal expansion ...

Problem: The loss of a limb severely affects one’s independence, by limiting the performance of activities of daily living. Although artificial limbs have been developed to accommodate those with limb loss, current hand prostheses are rarely used. Majority of amputees we talked to claimed that they would rather perform tasks using the remainder of their limbs whenever they can – with the resulting unnatural posture causing chronic back pain and an overuse of the functional arm, leading to further health complications. These current hand prostheses are of heavy weight, uncomfortable fitting, and complicated control interface.

Our solution and innovation: We have developed a soft prosthetic hand with features addressing current issues with hand prostheses and the need of upper-limb amputees ...

Jogging and fitness has become a nationwide movement, but the rate of sports injuries increases as well. However, most people do not know how to use elastic therapeutic tape to protect and cure injured joints. Sometimes they use it in a wrong way that even make it worse.

The Xbandage app makes the elastic therapeutic tape which requires professional technique and experience be easily used via the AR guide. Through the AR guide in the XBandage APP, the smart mobile shows users how to use elastic tape on the joints, simulate the real-time method of pasting, and show the teaching information so that the users can easily put on the tape. The system also integrates the suggestions from physical ...

Problem:

70% of global oil production is used as transportation fuel. Fuel related GHG pollution costs the global economy $1.3 trillion a year. Electric has been proposed as an alternative but the EPA opines that it will never exceed 10% of the market because batteries only have 1% of the energy density of fuel. This means that for 90% of the market a solution does not exist.

Transformational Innovation:

The DOE advises that combusted fuel converts to 30% pressure (which moves a vehicle), and 70% heat, which is discharged by current engines as wasted energy. Conversely, the USPTO patented ZED engine innovatively scavenges bottom-cycle combustion heat energy and combines it with pressure (CHP – Combined Heat/Power or Combined Heat/Pressure) ...

Present Issues: Nut welding field failures in vehicles.
Scope: New Design required to avoid the Nuts from the Vehicles but basically it most & should qualify the better than nut functions without failure. Zero Nut vehicles.
Idea of Design: Developed the basic design which is nut free & it is easy to develop at all the places or area in any Vehicle as a sheet metal part itself will be working as Nut which qualifies all the requirements.

Result: Developed the universal design to remove the nuts from the vehicles.
1) Will make zero field failures for the vehicles.
2) Will reduce the weight of the vehicles and increase the performance (Weight Reduction).
3) Will reduce the material ...
