Record-breaking amount of Sargassum is in the Caribbean resulting in the largest problem ever. The major problem it has brought are it piles up on beaches, sometimes many feet thick and begins to decay. The hydrogen sulphide that gets released smells like rotting eggs and many resorts had to close their doors. Since the species are Sargassum natans and Sargassum fluitans float they block sunlight creating a dead zone beneath them because plants under need sunlight to survive and the clean-up and removal of sargassum is an expensive task. This project proposes a new way to solve this problem. The best solution is a long term solution but the Caribbean economy depends upon tourism so it needs a quick ...

Earth exerts a gravitational force and pulls down every object that attempts to leave or escape it. Therefore, in order to break free from Earth’s gravitational pull, it is essential for a rocket to attain an enormously high speed. This velocity is known as the ‘escape velocity’. For Earth, the escape velocity value is 11.2 kilometers per second (25,020 mph); this means that you have to accelerate a rocket at 11.2 kilometers per second in order to make the orbit.

This project is about building a mechanism that uses gravitational force to launch space shuttles instead of against it to achieve the escape velocity with lower cost. This is done by integrating roller coaster principle, Newton law and existing ...

In extreme hot summer, many people, particularly the elderly, can suffer heat-stroke and die. For example, in 2018, there were more than 65,000 global deaths due to extreme heat wave. Therefore, air-conditioning is no longer a luxury but a necessity.
Air conditioners literally save lives and improve quality of life both at home and at work. So why are air conditioners not available everywhere? Present day air conditioners, invented in 1902, face a number of challenges. Firstly, they consume huge amounts of energy; secondly, they cause significant environmental detriment due to the use of chemical refrigerants; and lastly, to cool a desired location, they dissipate large amounts of heat to the environment; creating undesirable heat zones.

Conventional water-based ...

Most of us wear synthetic fabrics like polyester every day. Our dress shirts, yoga pants, fleeces, and even underwear are all increasingly made of synthetic materials plastic, in fact. But these synthetic fabrics, from which 60% of all clothing on earth is made, have a big hidden problem: when they’re washed, they release tiny plastic bits called microfibers that flow down our drains, through water treatment plants, and out into our rivers, lakes and oceans by the billions.

If there is a mechanism that can collect all these microfibers, cloth manufacturing companies can reuse the microfibers to make new clothing like tough, very soft-to-the-touch materials for general clothing use. This collection can be done using a newly designed washing ...

NOVAlert™ IVS (Intelligent Vigilance Solutions) is a patent pending active automotive safety system embedded in the driver’s seat. It performs the monitoring and alerting of driver’s drowsiness and inattentiveness. Moreover, special countermeasures temporarily restore and sustain the driver’s alertness while suggesting nearest safe stop location. Proof of concept technologies, embedded in wrist watches and steering wheels, were scientifically validated. It is now migrating to a practical, novel, smart driver’s seat. Nothing to wear or grip.

Our mission and vision are to create the future by offering a seat-embedded multivariate sensing, data conditioning and communicating reference design together with machine learning analytics embedded silicon chip solution to enhance road safety challenges primarily for long haul and elderly drivers.

Urban Transportation is a very important matter in highly dense cities. Density creates challenges for urban transportation because of crowding and the expense of providing infrastructure in built-up areas. This is because most peoples who need transportation are the one who works on a regular basis. Now a day’s modern cities use different means of transportation and the highest tech ones use online ordering for transportation. But this has lots of problems and it does not entirely solve the urban transportation problem. This project solves the entire urban transportation problem in cities.

This project is about solving the transportation problem in cities by interconnecting everyone's calendar and schedule with transportation providers. Many studies have shown that modern peoples way ...

The air conditioning of spaces has become a need of the human being to have a better quality of life, it is common for many families to have equipment to cool the air in their homes in the spring and summer seasons; In hospitals it is important to have air cooling systems for the hygiene conditions that are required, as well as to maintain comfort in public places such as cinemas and restaurants. Particularly in the geographical areas where there is a warm climate, air conditioning equipment is very necessary to counteract the high temperatures. Our team has identified certain problems that still exist regarding conventional air conditioning equipment:

1.- There is a part of the population that cannot ...

The invention addresses the problems of food and beverage preservation within minutes of time, which means in a situation where cooling beverages or food product is needed quickly, this product will be very useful. The basic idea of the invention is a very small or hand refrigerator that can instantly cool beverages or food products within a matter of minutes. This is done by using conduction heat exchange instead of convection for faster heat transfer between the coils and the cooling product.

Instant cooling hand refrigerator is a very small refrigerator intended for home and field use that can cool beverages and food products under a minute for preservation or satisfaction. This means there is a demand for fast ...

Tests on anchovies show that when plastic is mixed with salt water and begins to disintegrate it releases an odor which is similar to krill. The enticing smell sets off foraging and feeding behaviour in fish, causing them to eat the debris, believing it is food. Previously scientists thought that fish were ingesting tiny particles of plastic by accident when they were hoovering up floating pieces of plankton or krill. But the new study suggests the problem is even more serious because fish are actually attracted to the plastic.

A recent study estimated that nine in 10 of the world’s seabirds now have pieces of plastic in their guts, mainly through eating fish which have ingested plastic. A recent ...

The real-time water quality monitoring and notification system (water QMS) measures the essential qualities of water -- the water PH, temperature, turbidity (cloudiness of water), and water level in the tank -- in real time. The system consists of multiple sensors to measure the standards of water in the tank, the micro-controller to analyze the readings and the GSM module to send the information to the watching centre through SMS. It is a true time system, which is able to measure the standards of water endlessly, and can send the measured values to the watching centre when each predefined time. I developed the device to allow people to have access to safe water in their daily ...
