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 ...

In this project, load cell is used as a weight sensor. This sensor will be placed below the LPG gas cylinder. GSM module is to send SMS to owner as to inform about weight and leakage of cylinder and to gas agency for booking of the cylinder.

This project is used to monitor continuous weight of the LPG cylinder and detect the leakage. If any gas leakage occur, the regulator automatically switches off . When the gas cylinder gets emptied, this system book the cylinder automatically and informs the gas booking to the ...

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 ...

The innovative air filter is a replacement product for the existing paper filters that can be manufactured and retrofitted on automobiles and diesel locomotives. The air filter media is comprised of a blend of 7 types of microfibers, dipped in a proprietary chemical solution. The air is provided to the engine with accelerated draft, the air gets ionized due to the friction with the filter media. The air filter has an ISO standard dust holding capacity of 99.4%.

A simple replacement/retrofitted product shows 30-50% more gain in mileage on petrol and diesel vehicles reducing emissions up to 45%. At economic level, India can save USD 7.3 Billion on fuel imports yearly with a mere 10% of fuel saving, which ...

Flash Bainite is recognized as Dept of Energy's 2017 "SBIR Small Business of the Year". Outperforming many 1000s of inventors, Flash Bainite was considered to outperform progress in bio-fuels, wind, solar, batteries, nuclear, and all other small businesses funded by DOE.

DOE's Advanced Manufacturing Office's Drs David Forrest and Theresa Miller wrote:

"With widespread use of Flash-processed steels, the U.S. automotive industry could save over 100 pounds of vehicle weight per car at reduced cost. The potential of Flash-processed steels goes beyond the auto industry, however, with applications in agricultural machines and heavy equipment, rail, ships and defense systems with performance improvements, lower cost and lifetime energy savings possible in each application area."

The US Dept of Energy has ...

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 ...

Researchers have developed an integrated communications and control system for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) that utilizes automatic dependent surveillance broadcast (ADS-B) technology. The system addresses safety concerns relating to UAS sharing airspace with traditional manned aircraft. This state-of-the-art system is capable of real-time situational awareness (e.g., air traffic, weather), updates in three-dimensional trajectories, and can be reengineered for specific mission operations and applications, giving the user a customized experience. The ADS-B system detects and tracks intruders; evaluates and prioritizes threats; declares and determines required action, and then communicates the determined action to the UAS pilot. The system’s ability to integrate various components for enhanced communications, command-and-control operations, and efficient sense-and-avoid capabilities addresses many of the technical barriers related to ...

Varuna is our first AUV and we completed it in a one year design cycle. The vehicle is fully modelled using Solidworks software and extensively we will simulate the structural and flow analysis with ANSYS, STARCCM+ software and going to manufacture almost entirely on our campus. Based on the Grid independent studies simulation is carried out for various speeds for 0.1-0.5 m/sec then only we can neglect the lift forces based on the wet test.

Varuna presents a cheaper, stronger, lighter in weight of 37 kg and compact size of 0.8m*0.6m*0.6mas length, width and height of the vehicle and capable of working under 50 m depth. New advancements include full vehicle control of six degrees of freedom, a dual-hull ...

Anesthesia is a major drug that takes part in almost all kinds of major surgey. Anesthesia is administered to a patient by taking a few body parameters into account. This is usually done by an anesthetist where one manually analyzes these parameters and calculates the dosage. In this way the probability of error is usually high. Our solution is to remove the human error in this impeccable system, by designing a system which takes the required parameters and automatically controls the injection system. This system will assist the anesthetist in his decision making process and can also act as an autopilot for him. The Anesthesia System is powered by concept of Fuzzy Logics, which will ensure good decision making ...

My product is an author's work, which will reflect the beauty of nature, its elegance and individuality. Through this work I would express my respect and love for nature. Using my work I want to develop in others a sense of beauty. Creative product may be used in interior design, house, classroom or shop. I think this develops a taste, imagination, emphasizing the environment’s beauty. It helps focus attention on the objects which are made by using beading technology. I think that through the design we can bring up an aesthetic personality and encourage human creativity.

Plan:

The name of my product is Ava tree. I was planning to make it big. The base is wide, it will keep ...
