The demand for miniature devices is big and growing quickly. Smaller devices are lighter, faster, use less power and consume fewer resources. They have enabled wearables, point of care diagnostics, IoT devices, and the aerospace industry.

But methods for making these devices are slow and expensive.

Conversely, 3D printing, has enabled rapid prototyping and the ability to design iteratively and make complex structures that could not have been built previously. But not at the size needed for the micromachines behind all these technologies.

The ability to rapid prototype micromachines is so far an untapped market, with enormous potential.

With Laminated Resin Printing (LRP) we can now make these very small structures in a fast, affordable and user-friendly tool for ...

LED video displays are a $15B market. It is also the last passive-matrix video device in production. The existing process uses discrete LEDs on conventional PCBs. With a passive backplane, all the image artifacts, drive issues and poor video quality that drove all other passive displays out of existence are preventing LED based displays from entering new markets such as digital cinema, and encroaching on the high-end, large TV market. No active-backplane technology has the required combination of performance, scalability and cost of manufacture.

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

Silicon on Demand [1] is a novel, patented, and low-cost process for printing large numbers of small regions of single-crystal silicon on large area substrates. The process makes use of well-established semiconductor industry technologies. For ...

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. In the current setup, cleaning fluids are sprayed onto the optical surface of the sensor.

My tech idea is not a cleaning tech but a protective tech and it can work in this way that there will be no need of cleaning the optical ...

Plastic containers are mainly used for food, storage and for home organization. The main advantages of plastic include durability and cost. Most food products use plastic packaging because they are corrosion resistant, chemically inert, have a low thermal expansion of co-efficient and possess good thermal, electrical insulating property, very good water resistant and possess good adhesiveness.

In most plastic stored food products, you often see expiry date. Expiry date is the date after which a product (such as food or medicine) should not be sold because of an expected decline in quality or effectiveness. But aside from that, why really a manufacturer puts an expiry date on its product? To answer this quotation we need to understand the relation ...

A mm wave soil moisture sensor that can accurately measure moisture quantity in soil avoiding the effect of salt influence on the measurement.

Salt in soil disrupts the accuracy of moister measurement in soil in almost all type of high and low cost sensor in todays market (except TDR type of sensor who are very high cost). This type of low cost sensor can measure the quantity of moisture in a designated field area and transmit moisture data to irrigation hub system for accurate irrigation of the planted field.

Sensor works in a mesh network using very low power where the sensor battery can provide power for several years before its need to be replaced. This type of sensor ...

Radio receivers are part of our day to day life. These are the electronic devices which are receptors of radio waves and translate the obtained information in an acceptable form. They are utilized in combination with antenna. The main purpose of antenna is to convert radio waves into electrical form and required information is extracted by receivers. Filters are also necessary in receivers which are used for separating the radio frequency signals from other signals picked up antenna and electronic amplifier is used to raise power of signal for further processing and finally desired information is recovered using demodulation process. FM radio is one of the most common application. Although there are number of wide range receivers available in ...

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, ...

This project is about building a low cost personal computer or a laptop damper to prevent damage when the laptop falls to the ground. This is done by installing four small structures as seen in the diagram. The four structures are fixed in all four edges of the laptop. The structures have very low weight and each has a small spring that will absorb the force of impact when the laptop falls to the ground. As seen in the figure when the laptop is closed, it cannot be damaged if it falls on any side because all spring dampers cover all the 10 possibilities of falling on the laptop. Also, note that the damper structures have minimal height and ...

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. ...
