This system uses Machine Learning to classify bank notes. Trained on self-taken images of up to 7,000 taken under different various conditions of the environment and money conditions such as wet, crunched and dirty notes. it currently has only been trained and tested on Malawian bank notes. The system is continuously trained and tested for improvements.

Using computer vision, it gets an image of a bank note and starts to look for the specific features that make that money unique. it then cleans the image data and feeds it to the frozen convolution neural network model that spits out a result. The result is an array of labels which in our case are names of the various bank notes ...

BACKGROUND:

Every year thousands of people lose body parts in accidents caused by different ways. Usually most of the other parts which are used to interact with computer are lost, but the eyes are still working, so why don't we use them? It doesn't mean if he or she doesn't have hands or he or she can't speak, and just because of this issue, he/she will go to bed and sleep the rest of their life. Why don't we find a way to allow their work to be carried out in the same way they used to do? For this purpose we figured that eyes are one of the biggest blessing we take for granted. We are trying to ...

A Digital Multi-Meter (DMM) is a test tool used to measure two or more electrical values principally voltage (volts), current (amps) and resistance (ohms). It is a standard diagnostic tool for technicians in the electrical/electronic industries. Digital multi-meters long ago replaced needle-based analog meters due to their ability to measure with greater accuracy, reliability and increased impedance. Though it is called Digital, it includes manual work like setting the knob to a specific parameter and to a specific range. This manual setting is tedious job at the field location. The goal of this project is to develop a model that leads to saving time, money and reducing the risks associated with remote field localities. This project mainly includes the ...

Problem:

Rubbernecking is a major issue on the roads of today. This action is a very dangerous behavior. It causes additional wreckage, due to a motorist’s curiosity on traffic accidents instead of the road. This behavior also leads to a slow flow of traffic. Furthermore, a traffic accident site sometimes exposes graphic scenes that may be too much for sensitive motorists.

Solution:

The solution to this issue would be to design a barrier that offers privacy to prevent other motorist from looking at a current accident scene. It can be deployed in seconds! Moreover, it can be easily snap-fitted to fire trucks or ambulances.

As for structure of the barrier, the curvature of it, allows air flow to travel ...

This project is about an automated sediment collection for a dam that is one of the biggest challenges of hydropower enegineering. The main problems that are shown on a dam concerning sediment are that it is very difficult to manage sediments once they are at a low level. This is because sediments have high weight and they are bulky to manage. The first problem is how do you remove them in the first place. This can be solved by installing an artificial bed in the bed of the underwater ground which is connected to a cable that is attached to an automated crane. When a sensor detects weight change it automatically starts and the strings attached to a pully ...

As the global population continues to grow every year, so too does the demand for agricultural products. To continue feeding the world without damaging the environment is one of the greatest challenges faced by society, and can only be achieved by increasing the efficiency and sustainability of agricultural production.

This project is about filling the gap between modern farming technology which requires skill, more cost and higher tech and traditional or ancient technology still widely used in many countries of the world which does not require much skill, labour-based and lower cost. The mechanism of semi-automated farming technology is very simple. First, there is a C- channel structure (the green structure) fixed with the farming ground at the side ...

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 ...

A modular system fluidity-based controlled expansion system that uses a gas to inflate an inner container quickly which then causes a fluid filled container to displace fluid causing expansion and deformation of the second container. A cable over the second container fixed at one end simulates tendon action. Each module is a system to itself requiring five volt logic and 16 volt 0.250A pulsed for energy input. The length of the power pulse determines the strength of movement. Single action units and double action units are available system can be scaled. Login input is a serial interface to tell the unit when to execute the command, allowing synchronization of ...

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 ...

A drive unit comprising a two part-electric motor and a gear box coupled thereto is known. Gear box that is needed to reduce the output speed and thereby increase the torque. A disadvantage of the known drive unit is that it results in substantial costs, such as the gear box and its coupling to the motor exceeds two and more times the value of the motor itself. Furthermore, the presence of additional knots and details leads to the appearance of gaps, unevenness and noise at work, with an increase in details reducing the security of the product itself.

This is avoided by the proposed cyclo motor. In cyclo motor we have a unique combination of functions of the motor ...
