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 ...

What happens when an astronaut gets sick? Current missions require that astronauts take medications with them from Earth. But many medications degrade over time, especially protein drugs, and the necessary stockpile takes up precious mass and volume on a spacecraft. With the push towards long-term human missions to the Moon and Mars, this model is not sustainable. Even on Earth, there are many people without access to critical medicines because regional production and distribution systems are lacking, especially in remote areas, resource-poor areas and in austere environments. Our solution is an “Astropharmacy” – an innovation that allows protein drugs to be produced “on demand,” even in the remote environment of space, using genes as templates for cellular or cell-free ...

Ayurveda is life in case of biomedical. It basically deals with Vatt, Pitta, Kapha. These three together are called tridoshas. They contain lot of information. These are diagnosed through a person's wrist. In today’s technological century what a great idea if person comes to know about presence of heart attack earlier. Required precautions will be taken by the person and not all but some of them can serve better and good life. When a disease is caused it causes imbalance in tridoshas. Thus diagnosis of diseases is nothing but reading wrist pulses. For reading three of them index, middle and first are placed on wrist of patient. Wrist pulse is diagnosing technique from TCM. Out of wrist and fingers ...

There are many types of wastes in the world. The most difficult one to manage is plastic. This is because plastics can easily harm living things because chlorinated plastic can release harmful chemicals into the surrounding soil which can then seep into groundwater or other surrounding water sources and also the ecosystem, the fact they do not decompose easily and many other reasons. In the city, the most plastic wastes include bottled water, fruit or juice boxes, home use chemical packaging and so on. These plastics are Polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) the most widely used plastics in the world. Companies pay garbage collators especially plastic waste collectors lots of money for recycling and this is not an ...

United Aircraft Technologies (UAT) is developing a smart aircraft Inter-Connecting Clamp (ICC) solution with an Augmented Reality Monitoring System (ARMS) for aircraft wiring that improves fuel economy (overall weight reduction of the aircraft), decreases the occurrence of Repetitive Strain Injuries among the workforce, simplifies maintenance through 3D fault location and visualization, and reduces the environmental impact of CO2 emissions.

This technology has the ability to revolutionize equipment readiness. A solution that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), blended with Augmented Reality (AR) that would replace the old, rubber coated clamps/brackets and associated hardware that hold wire bundles today. The old clamps often get bent out of shape and the rubber coating wears off exposing the metal band, ...

Ever since I saw the 'Hero' Malian migrant who saved a child from Paris balcony building, I was inspired to build a mechanism that can prevent or save peoples who fall down from a building automatically. The best method I could come up with so far is an automatic airbag installed at bottom of buildings on side of the building where there is a window or a balcony which peoples often fall on purpose or not. The detection of a falling person is done by installing closely assembled multiple laser rays installed on each floor of the building in the side where the airbag is fixed. When each laser at each floor detects an object falling it will automatically ...

Automated Painting of Murals on the Exterior of Large Buildings

THE PROBLEM
a. Updating the exterior of large buildings requires labor intensive maintenance.
b. Painting extremely tall murals is dangerous and beyond the skills of many artists and painters.

THE SOLUTION
Automate the painting process by scaling-up inkjet printer technology
a) Design and build a large 4-head paint sprayer for the colors: red, yellow, blue, and black.
b) Erect scaffolding and motorized horizontal and vertical gantries near the face of the building.
c) Attach 4-head paint sprayer to horizontal gantry.
d) Securely attach required volume of paint (e.g. 55-gallon drums of red, yellow, blue, and black) to the vertical gantry.
e) Download desired image to the paint-head controller.
f) Begin the automated painting process.

THE PROCESS
1) Take a picture of the ...

One of the major problems caused by sand storms or wind is the highway problem. Roads are covered by sands on regular basis blocking traffic. The cleanup is time-consuming, require many manual works and not fast enough. The main problem this project solves is the sand problem in highways of UAE. As seen in the figure the main problem is the sand pile up on edges of the highway and small amount of wind can push the sands in the road and the sand pile up and block traffic. This can be avoided using this mechanism. Operators can minimize the amount of sands on the edge of the highway easily and quickly on a regular basis. Since the edge ...

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 ...

This is a process of identifying plastic according to their polymers using the latest and state of the art technology and sorting them out in automated manner. Perhaps this is the first of its kind.

LIBS and FTIR are laboratory tested and commercially applied. We just have to integrate the LIBS and FTIR device, more likely separately , in a machine to identify the type of plastic with automated movement during identification and separation process.

This is a development or improvement in the collection and sorting of plastics compared to manual means of separating different types of plastic since the identification of type of plastic is done quickly within microseconds only or in less than a minute for hard to determine ...
