The project proposed for the competition "Automated Commodities Vending Machine For Developing Regions"is designed to strengthen Public Distribution System of food grains to people in developing regions.

If the PDS system is not automated proper distribution of food grains is not possible and there are chances of corruption and food grains can be horded by false food tickets.

The Automated system will deliver Packets of food grains in a hygienic packaging that is easy to carry and tracked by RFID tags so that government knows that the commodities are transferred to the right beneficiary.

Please support and thanks for giving ...

Patented method of safely straightening bent automobile wheels. The SEMA award winning process employs simultaneous dual-axis hydraulic pressure to gently relieve the molecular strain in the metal at the bend site. The process spreads the yielding forces over a wider area allowing for the minimal application of heat. Too much heat will alter the physical and chemical properties of the metal and can damage the heat treat level. Scientific testing, reported in SAE Technical Paper 2016-01-1573, revealed that driving on a bent wheel will eventually result in a crack, which causes low air pressure, a dangerous driving hazard. NHTSA reports over 11,000 catastrophic blowouts annually are caused by low tire pressure. If properly done, wheel straightening is safe and ...

Avalanche photodiodes (APD's) offer increased sensitivity over photodiodes. Applications such as Lidar and fiber optic communications experience significant performance improvements by taking advantage of the higher sensitivity afforded by APD's.

However, APD's require a high voltage bias of ~50V to 600V or higher. Current bias power supply options are often too bulky, heavy and expensive for practical use in high volume applications and size constrained systems such as automotive or drone Lidar imaging.

Start-up power supply company Mike Doherty Designs, LLC, a Colorado Corporation, has targeted this market and has developed a miniature, very low cost design with a suite of APD specific features otherwise unavailable in the marketplace.

Despite its small size and low cost, this line of ...

The AxOPOC Engine is a hybridization of the EcoMotors’ EM-Series Opposing Piston Opposing Cylinder engine, and a sinusoidal-cam wobble-plate engine (aka. Revolver-cam/Dynacam engine). In this case, the inner two pistons share a common wobble-plate which is π-radians (180) out of phase with the end capping wobble-plates (and thicker than its counter-parts to deal with the greater forces acting upon it), which each accommodate a single piston, and needing guide-rods to maintain proper contact with the cam-plate. As with all sinusoidal-cam wobble-plates, the pistons are connected by a twin-roller assembly that rides on the rim of the cam, transferring the mechanical energy. This greatly reduces the mechanical complexity of linkages, and friction (by approximately 40%) due to eliminating side-forces on ...

As per title the power to run the sensor can be generate using Biomass and Bacterial colony.

There are several species of bacteria that can produce Bio-gas to generate power for sensors.

To produce biogas or power, these bacterial colony will be depend on  liquid of leaves of tree, grass. The liquid can be obtained by just crushing the leaves and grass. As per sketch just  infuse the liquid gained from tree leaves or grass into the Vial filled with bacterial colony as a food for bacterial colony and the colony will work to provide power in the form of gas. This gas can be used directly to powering the sensor or as a fuel cell. I know there ...

Catastrophic failure concerns of Li-ion batteries including excessive heating, fires and explosions create anxiety in battery consumer markets, especially as larger and more powerful Li-ion battery architecture hits the marketplace.

The main cause of failure is the internal short-circuit, which causes thermal runaway and ignition of the battery flammable materials.

Available methods to detect expected battery failure are not precise, costly, and time-consuming requiring days, weeks or even months. Internal shorts significantly increase normal cell leakage (self-discharge) which can be used as a metric for short detection and catastrophic failure prediction.

INL’s Battery Health Sentry is a simple and accurate technique for rapidly detecting internal shorts via fast measurement of self-discharge current in lithium-ion batteries.

The method involves connecting ...

Bio-Grid Pure Vapor is a next generation sanitizing automated robot for hospital procedure rooms, patient rooms, and industrial or sport spaces where bacterial sanitizing control is required to reduce infection transmission on surfaces.

The robot is placed by the maintenance crew after biologicals are removed from the room. Inputs are: standard 20 amp wall plug, Safety signage, room number, crew name, room size select 1 of 3 pre programmed (20, 30 or 40 minutes) enter and start cycle.

Cycle is hydrogen peroxide fog rotation followed by UV-C rotation and ending buzzer announcement. The combined therapy of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) followed by UV-C allows the fog to penetrate areas light does not or weaker at distances fog contacts and dual ...

Despite recent advances in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia, the available options are still limited and associated with some complications. In present investigation, we aimed to induce biological pacemaker through the insertion of Tbx18 gene, the key regulator of sinoatrial node development, into differentiating stem cells and also rat hearts.

And final result
The Tbx18-delivered cardiomyocytes exhibited pacemaker-like activity in vitro and showed the pacemaker cell-related gene expression profile. After complete heart block, the ECG recording data showed spontaneous pacemaker rhythms in both intervention groups with longer VF duration and signal propagation in Tbx18-lentivirus-received ventricles. In Tbx18-lentivirus-received ventricle tissues, the gene expression changes were in favor of pacemaker cell induction.

Conclusion: We confirmed the formation of functional pacemaker ...

The chrome tubes give a sustained appearance as well as golden parts all around this desk. It is innovative with its four boxes separated by a shelf for transferring documents on one side or the other. An upper part has been added which will allow the use of a rectangular table where it will be possible to deposit additional documents or utensils. The four legs will be square, thin, modern with a gold-plated coating which will give an additional aspect to the design. For this desk, a rolling box will be added with several drawers matched with a satin black varnish.

Innovation:

This new IT project linked to this office will allow several orders such as the closing of drawers by ...

The proposed innovation is a sustainable, cost-effective and scalable flow battery that can store excess renewable energy in water (H2O) and table salt (NaCl). I have named this the BlueBattery. It is a combination of two well-established technologies: [1] Electrodialysis (ED), which uses electricity to desalinate water with the help of special ion-exchange membrane. ED produces a stream of concentrated salty water and a stream of freshwater from brackish water. [2] The reverse is also possible. One can perform Reverse Electrodialysis (RED), i.e. mixing salty water with fresh water to produce electrical energy. Renewable energy sources are intermittent; this means that electricity generation using these sources fluctuates. To supply the world with 100% renewable energy, energy storage is indispensable. ...
