Background

The province of Nova Scotia (NS) in Canada has been shown to have very high levels of radon emissions which is often concentrated indoors in the basement of different houses. NS shows one of the highest levels of radon emission in Canada with about 25% higher risk of lung cancers. Moreover, various studies have shown the health hazards associated with radon emissions in NS and around the world. Radon is produced when uranium, thorium and radium break down soil, rock and water, and then released to the air. Radon and other water pollutants also contribute significantly to the water quality found in each household in Nova Scotia and around the world. Similarly, the study conducted by Environment Canada from ...

Oculur is fire-fighting equipment that integrates the sensor into the mask and the water jet nozzle. The collected data is displayed by AR, and the mode will switch from AR to VR when the visibility is poor, providing all-terrain 3D depiction. It can also do AI calculations by collecting the temperature and high temperature distribution data to predict flashover. The thermal imager can recognize the position of the waterline, the angle of the water jet nozzle and the trapped people. The sensor on the nozzle head can provide its precise operation. Oculur provides an effective means of ...

WORKER SPACE is a smart spray water mist system that improves the health and serious impact of high dust concentration. It can spray fine water mist at high altitude, which can reduce dust amount, lower temperature, generate convection, improve air pollution and heatstroke of staffs, and reduce the chance of explosion. Users can use the grips and wheels to transport water supply for unit configuration and build a spray dust-proof net. By environment detection, AI calculation, mobile device APP, real-time monitoring and adjustment configuration, it can save water and improve ...

The aim of the project is to facilitate agriculture anywhere from extreme earth to space conditions by creating suitable environment simulated by micro embedded systems. The growth in population and the food markets are increasing the deforestation for increasing agricultural land to meet the demand. Moreover the lands cultivated from centuries to decades are losing their fertility and prompting excessive use of fertilizers.

In short it is a plant hack system where the minerals and water absorbed from soil are fed through Nano/Micro systems stented into Xylem tissue. The possibility of root simulated approach became practical due to MEMS/NEMS technologies since the plant tissues and structures are few micro/nano meters which are primary for plant transport and metabolic mechanisms. ...

Problem
Hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, wildfires, and other events will continue to test the strength of the infrastructure modern society relies on, such as communication equipment like cellular networks.

Communications infrastructure needs to be restored within 72 hours after which the survival chances of victims decrease drastically.

Solution
Our IoT hardware solution ClusterDuck addresses this issue. Ducks are miniaturized multi-terrain wifi-enabled devices that are dispersed in clusters in areas where traditional infrastructure and communications is offline.

Once dispersed, the Ducks create an ad-hoc wireless network, enabling civilians in need of aid to connect to the network, and send information about their situation, location, and needs.

The DuckLink
A DuckLink, or simply a Duck, is a small WiFi-enabled IoT device in ...

In today's world, we use a massive amount of energy every day, nearly 25000 TWh per year. Additionally, a big percentage of this energy is supplied by nonrenewable energy sources, such as Oil (31%), Coal (28.6%) and Natural Gas (21.2%) in 2014. Furthermore, it is obvious that the consumption of nonrenewable energy sources is one of the major reasons for global warming causing oil spills, the abrupt increase in CO2 amount in the atmosphere, deforestation and etc. That's why energy supply is one of the major problems of today's world.

So we designed a keyboard and named it "Click Energy" that could be used as an alternative energy source by storing electricity generated from usage of its own. Placed ...

Groundwater, the water in aquifers accessible by wells, is a critical component of the U.S. water supply. It is important for both domestic and agricultural water needs, among other uses. Nearly half of the nation’s population uses groundwater to meet daily needs; in 2015, about 149 million people (46% of the nation’s population) relied on groundwater for their domestic indoor and outdoor water supply.

For some, this resource is readily available and in great supply. In the agriculture industry, however, that is not always the case. Access and proper use of water is imperative for the sustainability, growth and livelihood of agriculture.

Consistently stressed conditions can have dramatic long-term effects on groundwater. If pumping continues in excess of recharge, ...

Consider a path to profitability for commercial food retailers, one that competing online merchants cannot touch. A means of achieving impressive ROI within two years. A process that promises to recover $4.4 billion in lost revenues annually. A system that helps manage regional peak loads for electric utilities, lessening the likelihood of brownouts and blackouts. All of these ideals can become reality through the Grid Fruit innovation, which improves energy efficiency while reducing peak power demand and utility costs using machine learning and data science. This technology increases energy productivity and reduces demand, saving food retailers up to 15% in operational costs from reduced energy consumed, demand response rebates where applicable, and reduced peak demand (lowering the significant electrical ...

When batteries catastrophically fail, they can overheat, rupture, and or explode. Susceptible lithium ion batteries are everywhere - in consumer products like e-cigarettes, mobile phones, and electric cars, as well as in airplanes and facilities for alternative energy storage. Failures bring serious consequences:

-From 2015-2017, e-cigarette injuries sent more than 2,000 people to the hospital across the U.S. Several incidents were disfiguring or fatal. https://tobaccocontrol.bmj.com/content/28/4/472

-In 2016, Samsung recalled more than one million Galaxy Note 7 phones after at least 35 reports of overheating or exploding batteries worldwide.

-In May 2019, Tesla issued a software update to adjust battery settings in Model S and Model X cars after videos of cars bursting into flames in Asia became public.

-An ...

In this current world where technology is growing up day by day which is gradually increasing the usage of precious and expensive things in day to day life for making works handier, the need for security is also hyped in all areas. On the other hand as a human being, we always want to get maximum possible results with less effort and expense. We know well that in the 21st century biometrics is a very effective way of security authentication, but again using the physical biometrics sensors for this purpose makes it a lot more expensive as well as a bit complicated for a common man to afford and use.

When thought variedly for the solution to this problem ...
