Desert regions are excellent places to generate solar power, as the sun shines directly and uninterruptedly during the day. These areas are also the most dusty places in the world due to the prevailing drought. The sand and dust particles clearly hinder the generation of electricity, as the sun's rays are deflected or obscured. PV and CSP system operators are thus forced to constantly clean the surfaces of solar systems with water in order to minimise yield losses. Otherwise they are threatened with yield losses of up to 1 percent per day if the collector surfaces are not cleaned.

But this again causes enormous O&M costs, because water is a precious commodity in desert regions. At least because the ...

Cranes are used to move loads from one location to another in minimum time such that the load reaches its destination without swinging. As we all know, that swinging problem occurs due to flexibility of wires but if the wire is rigid and permanently fixed on one side then the swinging problem will not occur.

As per the sketch there will be a telescopic arm and one side of the arm will be attached with the trolley of the crane. This rigid telescopic arm will be connected with the load at the time of lifting the load. In this way there will be no problem of swinging as the rigid telescopic arm will be fixed with the trolley and ...

Our off-grid tiny home designs will be on a trailer powered by solar energy and propane. The goal is to use the latest in renewable technology to create a daily living space that is equal or better in providing comfort and the convenience of a larger home. The main difference between a Solarcycle tiny home design and other tiny homes is our focus on treating the home as a thermodynamic project involving long- term tiny home living issues such as waste management, ventilation, condensation, ergonomics, accessibility, energy efficiency, insulation, safety, and manufacturability. Right now, our prototype tiny home will include an incinerator toilet, solar power storage, propane heating and cooking, an energy recovery ventilator, LED lighting, and Aerogel insulation.

You are unhappy with flies, ants, & cockroaches in your kitchen.
You are worried about houseflies’ contamination.
You are uncomfortable with an ugly and messy insect trap in your house.
You hate to clean dead flies.
You are anxious about children and pets touching dirty insect traps.
You want to throw the insects trap as a garbage bag.

There are significant flaws in existed insect traps such as:
- Insect is stuck on an open adhesive tape, dead body or part may fall down during cleaning up and disposal.
- Insect stuck inside a close adhesive box, it is difficult to check how many trapped death insects to decide when to clean ...

The Problem
Vertigo and dizziness are among the most frequent complaints seen in Emergency rooms and outpatient clinics. While most individuals experience impaired motion perceptual cues from a vertigo/dizziness attack for several seconds. As many as 2.6 million Americans with a diagnosis of an inner ear (vestibular) disorder such as Meniere's Disease, Vestibular Migraine, or Mal debarquement syndrome suffer from persistent impairment for several hours. The problem for these individuals is that current rehab and therapeutic solutions available either yield incomplete recovery or produce sedating side-effects. Consequently, they can be forced to spend as much as ¼ of every month dizzy without an effective tool to manage their symptoms and get them back on their feet as quickly as ...

This idea is about the incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) in missiles as replacement of heat seekers in order to eliminate the effects of flares that are usually deployed by the target in order to evade heat seeking missiles which is technically called Infrared Homing missiles. The artificial intelligence smart missiles may be equipped with several cameras in order to assist the image recognition of an AI in all angle so that the smart missile can freely locate the target in all angle. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Smart Missile compares the target to the image stored in its memory. So, any mismatch on the number or letters written on the plane of the target will divert the AI missile ...
A device that stores energy in particles suspended in an insulating media, that travels around a storage unit comprised of an endless loop. The particle mutual repulsion keeps the particles from clumping or settling. The energy is imparted to each particle by a diode pumped solid-state ultraviolet irradiation device, while the media movement is accelerated to high speed. Once the storage media has completed a loop, resulting in a fully charged battery. The Ionized particles thus remain suspended in the media indefinitely, until discharge is implemented. The charged particles progress over a antenna where their energy is read by small signal amplifiers then fed to oscillation electronics to produce a viable output voltage. The media is advanced at slow ...

We have developed an integrated air quality monitoring UAS which also has collision avoidance technique to avoid collision with real time obstacles while monitoring. We have used an ultrasonic sensor for collision avoidance and mq135 for air quality sensing. We have developed a program for displaying the pollution gas availablity in percentage instead of ppm.

An anti collision system is essential for safe flight of the drone. It gives a simple solution for obstacle detection and collision avoidance in UAVs. The obstacle is detected using the ultrasonic sensor (HC-SR04).

Ultrasonic sensors work by emitting sound waves at a frequency too high for humans to hear. They then wait for the sound to be reflected back, calculating distance based on ...

Pedestrian safety is of extreme importance in the new autonomous vehicle environment. While vehicle sensor technologies continue to evolve and improve, there is a need for a robust back-up to help protect pedestrians , motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pets. My idea is a small wearable electronic tag that would tell an autonomous vehicle via a common standard protocol that "Hey, I'm here." For people, it could be worn on a lanyard badge holder or integrated with personal phones and smart watches . For pets, it could be attached to a collar. The device would have a low power requirement, long battery life, be thin and compact, easily replaced, and emit a signal over a limited distance that would be recognized ...

There are products like battery operated bats available in the market to kill mosquitoes and insects but there is no battery-less innovation. My invention is very simple and very effective in killing mosquitoes as there is no need for recharging the battery of this mosquito bat. Only a bat and adhesive tape are required to build it. It will work to by trapping and killing mosquitoes. Salient features: (1) there is no need for recharging it. (2) the adhesive tape can be removed and replaced after use. (3) it is a very low cost design so anyone can afford it very easily. (4) it is safe and light weight (5) it can be used many ...
