Autonomous vehicles require multiple optical sensors, such as cameras or LIDAR, in the car’s body on all sides. Today, such sensors are mostly used for parking assistance.

In automated driving, the accurate function of these sensors is required to ensure safe driving. Contaminants such as dirt, dust, organic material and different phases of water (ice, rain, snow, etc.) on the surface of the sensor yield blurry and inaccurate images, thus leading to erratic system performance.

This project is about building a cover mechanism for camera of a car that does not require cleaning and protect the lens of the camera from giving blur vision due to particles like dust, rain, snow and so on. This can be done using ...

Accexlron is a rapid prototyping micro-controller development board based on the high-performance RISC architecture based ATmega 2560. The board comes with a host of functionalities like - Built-in motor driver circuitry, Bluetooth and Wifi Plug--n-Play compliancy. Higher voltage and current thresholds, Greater Sketch Size and Higher Throughput of 16MIPS at 16Mhz clock speed. The board was primarily designed to eliminate redundant tasks like being vigil about the current and voltage supply, excess power supply that led to frying of your application. The board is supposed to automate several redundant tasks, aid in hardware minimisation while helping DIY-hackers, hardware startups and students alike in rapid ...

Harvesting energy efficiently is of paramount importance to maximize energy production efficiency. In order to produce energy freely I have successfully developed a new concept after spending several years to research.

How it works: Rotor coils rotate counter clockwise reaction of that makes permanent magnet rotor rotate in clockwise direction. This motion of permanent magnet rotor causes reaction in outer rotor in clockwise direction which causes a current generated in outer coils.

The energy that produces electricity comes from reaction (Newton’s third law). Every electric motor has reaction; this reaction force is lost to move earth for a minuscule amount of distance, if motor is attached rigidly to earth by mountings. Famous examples of reaction forces in moving vehicle ...

Smart reattachable control trigger turret tripod or the SRCTTT for short has a bidirectional form fitting receiving dock that can be minipulated to accept/port various reattachable weapons of selected choice. Once a weapon is docked using the slide lock function onto the SRCTTTs adjustable receiving dock/port the control trigger/"finger" press release activated control function manuvers and or rests in a locking/unlocking firing position. The tripods telescope legs have 2 battery attachments that are reattachable via a slide lock function which connect to the SRCTTT on opposite sides of the telescope legs. The third telescope leg is for a adjustable reattachable ammo box container to fit various sizes. The SRCTTT's sensory 3d cameras incorporate zoomable night vision, ultra violet and ...

The Pulsed Turbine Transvector Jet Propulsion concept is a recently developed adaptation to the Pulsed Turbine Rotor Engine and The Pulsed Turbine Jet Propulsion concept.

The transvector jet principle with optional water spray/steam thrust booster was envisioned to ensure ample thrust to vertically launch a VTOL jet propelled vehicle and speed up its transition to horizontal flight. This innovative idea could expedite the vehicle’s transition to horizontal flight from a vertical launch and consume less conventional fuel in the process.

Applying the same principle introduced by the Pulsed Turbine VTOL Gyro-Stabilized Jet Propulsion Platform, four identical Pulsed Turbine Jet Engines are linked physically by a central thrust vectoring transmission drive and also ...

This project is about building a new mechanism for cooling vehicle batteries when they are being charged. This new mechanism follows the law of Tubular heat exchanger. The heat exchanger encloses the batteries which are sealed to be waterproof. As shown in the figure, the car has three openings. One for charging, the second input opening for the cold fluid or water to cool the batteries and the third opening for a hot fluid or water outlet from cooling the batteries. When the driver is charging his/her car he/she will also attach the two valves for quick cooling the charging car. Assuming the battery has +45°C while being charged, we can manage to bring down the temperature to a ...

My wife is an ecclectic collector of recipes. I always joke with her that she has the
largest collection of Internet- supplied recipes in the world. And, despite that, she never
fails to ask me: “So, what should I make for supper tonight ?”.

A symptom of food preparation today, our laziness compels us to rely on quick food.
But, our taste buds and bodies yearn for a fresh, home-cooked meal. It easily explains all
these new services providing home delivered meal ingredients along with “easy-to-use”
preparation instructions. It also explains the newest kitchen appliances that are (almost)
all-in-one meal makers.

The truth is that ...

As manufacturing continues to expand and evolve, solutions to be smarter, more flexible, and increase productivity are required. CNC machine shop manufacturing facilities have a limited amount of floor space. With machining centers, materials, tooling, automation, finished product, chips/waste, inventory, inspection equipment, packing/shipping, material moving vehicles, personnel and others consuming the shop floor, solutions need to be explored. As automation, lights out operation is becoming necessary to keep up with demand and deliver the greatest return, making use of all available space is the next focus.

The concept is to elevate the automation, material stock, loading/unloading, finished part placement and delivery to inspection processes. Moving these to the space over and above the machinery. By applying technology, design the ...

BASE stands for Beta-Alumina Solid Electrolyte. This material is commercially available in various form factors including flat plate and cylinders. It belongs to a class of materials that have relatively high ion conductivity but high resistance to electron conduction. As such the concepts discussed herein could also apply to other such materials but henceforth will specifically deal with sodium ion conducting BASE as the model system.

Electric propulsion as it stands today lacks sufficient average power density for human crewed missions. Substitution of a liquid metal backed BASE layer for certain component(s) in conventional electric rockets could greatly increase the average power/thrust density available to the point that human crewed missions throughout our solar system become much more viable.

The plan is to develop a refined HPWH optimized for a home with a PV system in three major ways not found on typical HPWHs. It is significantly more efficient than current HPWHs since it can extract heat from water as well as air, it can store low-cost energy to reduce use of higher cost energy, and it can talk to the web and the grid to “know” when to store and when to use energy for the best savings from the PV system. This is an improvement over current HPWHs because it eliminates most of the fan noise and cold air they produce. With higher efficiency, better use of available energy, and less noise, this design will advance ...
