According to AAA’s Foundation for Traffic Safety, poorly secured loads are responsible for more than 25,000 crashes and approximately 90 fatalities in developed countries each year. And on top of that, there are all those nonfatal injuries to drivers behind you and damage to their vehicles. There are many ways to secure loads on pickup but none of them guarantee the safety and this project will guarantee the safety we need while driving loaded pickups.

This invention is a mechanism for pickup trucks to extend their trunk when carrying a long material or material which take higher surface area and carry more load without having the risk of instability in the vehicle under the capacity of the vehicle. This ...

Preservation of food and beverages is very difficult. One way of preserving is placing inside a vacuum container or seal. There are many types of vacuum seal but all of them are digital or run under electric power or motor. This is not feasible for home use because the price is expensive; its mechanism is complicated and so on. This device solves these problems. It can create a vacuum in a sealed container without using electric power or a motor which means it is manual. The device consists of a sealed container, hand air blower with two openings, two air valves and a balloon. And the mechanism is simple, first seal the container with a customized plastic bag which ...

Electric cars are limited as to the distance that they can be driven before complete battery failure; the average range is only about 100 miles. When the battery runs out of power the car is forced to stop and it is very hard to connect to a power supply for charging if the driver is in a remote area. This project is about building a mechanism that can charge an out of power battery electric vehicle while it is moving. This can be done when the electric vehicles run out of battery, the driver calls to the nearest electric car battery supply shops and another car will come to the location of the electric car. The car can be ...

Mosquitoes breed in the basins beneath planter pots. In many, there is a protruding lip used to water the plant. Planter pots are generally of a two-part design with the water basin at the bottom and the plant with potting soil on the top.

Gardeners bottom water through the lip in tight-fitting basin/pot configurations or in the basin in looser-fitting basin/pot configurations. The gap, wide or tight, and the watering lips permit entry of egg-laying female mosquitoes and exit of young, hungry mosquitoes.

The solution is a strip of fabric with a mesh tight enough to prevent crossing by mosquitoes but loose enough to permit bottom watering. This is akin to an adhesive bandage and can be purpose-built to ...

This idea is for a multi-layer of solar panel shade for electric vehicles (EV). Most solar panel charging station design uses a single layer of solar panels as shade roof for electric vehicles during charging. But a single layer of solar panel shade roof has a limited power rating during charging. To overcome this, I have made a multi-layer design of shade roof. That means, another set of solar panels are placed directly above a set of solar panels that are charging an EV in order to meet the required maximum power during charging. So there are two sets of solar panels as shade roof that are charging an EV. The upper and lower solar panel shades or shade ...

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 ...

The Navy and Military Sealift Command use reciprocating analysis (RA) as a part of a wide portfolio of technologies to monitor the condition (CM) of the fleet’s large Propulsion and Ship’s Service Diesel Generator engines. The CM data is used to improve fuel economy and enhance the effectiveness of preventative maintenance activities. The RA “shots” are taken periodically by attaching pressure sensors to the indicator cocks, and the Crew Engineers moving a pressure sensor between sequential cylinders during collection. The Pressure Time (PT) data that is recorded is downloaded to the ship’s computer, then displayed graphically in various analysis software packages for interpretation. Some engine compartment environments are cramped and pose potential hazards to personnel during collection activities. With ...

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.

This project is about building a cover mechanism for camera of a car that does not require cleaning and protect the lens of the camera from giving blur vision due to particles like dust, rain, snow and so on. This can be done using ...

Noise Pollution is the biggest problem faced by all the countries and all of them are investing a huge amount of money as well as time to solve the problem of pollution. Noise to electricity is not only solves one of the greatest problem of noise pollution but also gives the most demand able output which is electricity.

A loudspeaker (or speaker) is a transducer, which converts an electrical signal into sound waves. Since noise is also a form of sound wave or mixture of different kinds of waves, which gets wasted in the environment, so by law of conservation of energy it can be converted into another form of energy i.e. electrical energy, so by using a speaker ...

The Problem
Vertigo and dizziness are among the most frequent complaints seen in Emergency rooms and outpatient clinics. While most individuals experience impaired motion perceptual cues from a vertigo/dizziness attack for several seconds. As many as 2.6 million Americans with a diagnosis of an inner ear (vestibular) disorder such as Meniere's Disease, Vestibular Migraine, or Mal debarquement syndrome suffer from persistent impairment for several hours. The problem for these individuals is that current rehab and therapeutic solutions available either yield incomplete recovery or produce sedating side-effects. Consequently, they can be forced to spend as much as ¼ of every month dizzy without an effective tool to manage their symptoms and get them back on their feet as quickly as ...
