The future transport system globally has to be MUCH more efficient and electric. RUF offers a new combination of rail and car technology developed in Denmark with Government support.

It can reduce air resistance by close platooning on a special triangular monorail by a factor of more than 3. It can reduce rolling resistance by a factor of more than 3 because of the patented drive system and the triangular monorail.

The vehicles are powered from the monorail, so batteries only need to be small in order to drive from a monorail exit to your destination. On the monorail the vehicles are self driving in a VERY safe way, so that you can relax and work/sleep/enjoy the view while ...

You step on the platform, witch is big enough for your whole foot, and push a button to go up or down. It is run by your 24v drill batteries. The handle has the button you hold on to in order to go up or down. Holding on to the handle will give you better stability, especially going down. I don't know if you have ever thought you were all the way down and you had 2 steps to go, wow that was a big step to the ...

Currently all commercial continuously variable transmissions (CVT’s) in the automotive industry function on a friction drive principle. This friction drive interface exists between two hardened smooth steel surfaces separated by a traction fluid film. Traction fluid has the unique property in that it solidifies under high pressure, typically between 1 to 4 GPa, and then provides a traction coefficient of friction that varies from about 0.05 to 0.1. A number of factors determine the friction coefficient as well as the efficiency of the friction drive and as a result current commercial CVT’s do not feature high mechanical efficiencies, with a typical average mechanical efficiency of about 85%. Traction drive technology is a very well matured technology and has been ...

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Wireless IoT devices are notoriously easy to hack. Often an attacker goes unnoticed as they assume the identity of an edge device and use it to connect with the network. Once in a network, the hacker may cause a great deal of damage or steal important information.

Endpoint Security is completing the development of a product that will give every fixed, wireless IoT device the ability to use multi-factor authentication. We hope to use it to eliminate a particularly elusive wireless cyber-attack vector, a man-in-the-middle attack. This type of attack stems from a perpetrator spoofing a wireless edge device after eavesdropping on the communications to learn its media access control (MAC) address, encryption key and password.

The solution will use ...

SelectFlex® is the World’s Only Dynamic Arch Control Insole with Energy Return. SelectFlex arch insoles lift your arches into alignment with each step, to relieve foot pain with maximum comfort.

A simple turn of the key provides 1 2 3 levels of optimal lifting arch support for superior performance from healthier and happier feet!

Quinnipiac University's Motion Analysis Lab found the PowerLiftArch™ dynamically increased arch support by up to 52%.

The University of Edinburgh olympic test facility measured the heel PowerCup™ providing up to 50% more ankle alignment and stability.

SelectFlex is engineered with medical grade polymers, an ergonomic shell, padded by a super soft composite memory foam foot pad that is antimicrobial and surfaced by a low friction moisture wicking fabric.

SelectFlex ...

Machine learning and PID controller allow us to control an autonomous car to drive around an object.

How does it work?

1) MACHINE LEARNING: In this project we will create a NEURAL NETWORK with "Python" and copy its weights to a network with forward propagation on the "Artemis RedBoard ATP" board programmed with "Arduino IDE", and that will allow the robot car to drive alone and without hitting the walls. We will have four inputs, three correspond to 3 analog infrarred sensors and the fourth is for the BIAS. We will make the neural network have 4 outputs: two for each motor, since to the L298N driver we will connect 2 digital outputs of the board for each car ...

This prototype can help in achieving the long awaited dream of a self powered hydroponic farm. We all are aware of the fact that a hydroponic system requires high energy consumption which led to meagre growth in this sector and lost prime focus from corporate and govt agencies. With my prototype, hydroponic energy consumption will be free of cost and improve yield and tech farmer interest.

Prototype

Here a part of the farm is utilised for pellet production, either tree or energy grass can be used. The raw material will be dried and converted to pellets with the pellet making machine which is then further utilised for Mini Thermal Power Plant. The exhaust gas is then stored inside ...

ABSTRACT
The use and employment of small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) in public safety and commercial applications has grown exponentially since their introduction into the consumer market. As of February 2020 there were over 436,633 registered commercial, public/government and other drones and 167,841 remote pilots certified.The advantage of using drones in these applications is their ability to carry a payload that usually consists of a high resolution video/still camera, FLIR, multi-spectral sensors or other data collecting sensors. The efficiency, effectiveness, and usefulness of these sensors and the resulting data is directly correlated to the pilot’s ability to precisely position the sensor within the spatial environment in relation to the mission target of interest. The responsibility of safely flying the ...

The main problems of end users in the alcohol industry is when specific volume of alcohol is consumed within period of time that is shorter than recommended value of volume of alcoholic drink per specific time. Different alcoholic drinks have different alcohol content depending up on the type and brand of the alcoholic beverage. This variation of the alcoholic beverages leads to the difference in recommended consumption rate. But we often see peoples abusing this recommendation and drink alcoholic beverages that have high alcohol content within very short period of time instantly.

This project is about building an electronic weight sensor that is used as Coaster placed on tables at bottom of the bottle/cup holding the beverage to monitor ...

Bees and other insect pollinators are under threat globally from multiple human pressures. If pollinators disappear completely from an ecosystem, their loss will affect structure of those ecosystems and the natural foods and fibres we use from the ecosystem. So, finding solutions to the problem of pollinator decline are imperative.

“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”

This is why the bee drone (artificial bee) story sounds like such a seductive idea. Imagine creating tiny drones with hairs on them that can be programmed to do a bee’s job? Wow! We ...
