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 ...

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 ...

Most beverage companies earmark a large percentage of their budget for advertising because all of them know the power of advertisements. Companies use advertisements as part of a marketing program to increase sales of their products and services. Advertising plays a different role at different stages of the marketing process helping to raise awareness of a product or service, generating leads for a sales force or selling directly. In other words, the advertisement can brainwash society into using a specific product.

Coca-Cola audio/video player is an app for android phones and PCs. It does what all the video and music players do. What makes it special is that it plays the video or the audio while advertising the Coca-Cola ...

Products with marketing campaigns exist, striving to accurately meet the desires of purchasers.
Imagine: A quality beverage with recipes of historical nature, updated to construct a recognizable reputation. The innovation dominates in the target market.
Problem: For novices and consumers alike, choices vary in campaign and form. For example, expiration dates indicate freshness. With scientific innovation, products extend their lifespan. Language evolution identifies these markers. As we have come to find, eskimo’s have 20+ words for snow in varying states. All may leave a person wondering; what’s the difference?
Solution: Upon conception, color changing vodka was not just meant to increase quality of life in the 21+ leisure marketplace, but also allow its audience to deconstruct the inherently scientific ...

Here we present a modification in the elevator (lift) which can easily harvest the waste energy when the lift will be in operation, which will be due to the Recyclable Triboelectric materials. This modification increases the energy efficiency of the building. There is waste of energy during the up and down motion of an elevator and some amount of this energy can be easily harvested by this modification in the elevator.

Here we will be introducing the concept of Triboelectric Nanogenerator. Basically, triboelectric nanogenerator is a concept of generation of electricity by having rubbing action between two triboelectric materials or either when they come in contact and separated, there is an electron transfer between these materials, which can be ...

This device uses GPS and a terrain/obstacle database to create a predicted flight path. When the predicted flight path detects an approaching CFIT threat, the device changes from a passive flight following mode, gives the pilot an aural warning and a visual threat display. The pilot gets a 3D visual picture of where the predicted flight path will hit the terrain/obstacle. By maneuvering the airplane, the pilot can alter the predicted flight path away from the terrain/obstacle. When the predicted flight path no longer detects a CFIT threat, the system returns to the passive mode.

What makes this system novel is that when a CFIT threat occurs, it shows the pilot a visual picture of the predicted flight path ...

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 ...

Companies have understood the advantage of recycling and most companies in the world are investing to recycle their products. There are many factors why a company is interested or not interested in recycling their product. But the most critical factor is cost. Is the cost of recycling is low, equal or more than manufacturing the product? Since most companies value everything with profit which they have full rights to, they are not too open-minded about recycling if the cost is equal or more than manufacturing a new product. This makes perfect sense because you will not help the environment if you are also losing money. What we should work on is a means that will reduce the cost of ...

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 ...

Based on aggregated data, Indonesia produces 700 – 800 kg coffee beans per hectare, while in Vietnam coffee yields per hectare stands at 1500 kg and in Brazil at 2000 kg. Indonesia has 3 times the number of smallholder coffee farmers than smallholder coffee farmers in Vietnam, yet the productivity of our smallholders coffee farmers is just 1/3 the productivity of Vietnam. The root of the problem is the coffee farming practices in Indonesia are still based on traditional ways. Smallholder coffee farmers and even government and also private sector are basically practicing based on trial and error.

We believe that to actually change the way of coffee farming practices in Indonesia, we have to be as close as ...
