Salt and other chemicals rust undercarriage components. Car-bottom rust is dangerous and expensive.
The undercarriage is vulnerable to damage due to lack of care. Salt and mud damage is a safety issue -- many undercarriage components cannot be rustproofed. The greatest need for non-collision car repair results from preventable undercarriage rust.
Undercarriage rust damages the environment by destroying vehicles, wasting money and energy, and squandering resources required to prematurely replace rust damaged vehicles.
Vehicles driven through floodwater are bio-hazards.
Car makers mandate undercarriage washing. They specify that it be done manually, warn of potential injury from sharp undercarriage metal, and threaten to void warranties if such washing is not done.
The undercarriage is the only car surface that is ignored ...
Americans are eating themselves to death. On average, it takes $7 dollars to get a single apple from the grove of its birth to the bodega shelf in New York. The people that need the food the most cannot get it, and instead sustain themselves on packages designed more for shelf life than for human life. Heart disease, fatigue, obesity, and diabetes have all been connected to this, a statistic backed up by recent mortality rates in the poorer neighborhoods due to COVID-19.
With the number of both farms and farmers declining each year, we need to do better. Three technologies exist today, that if combined, would revolutionize health.
Container Farming - Aquaponics provides a closed-loop, environment free of ...
CHARTSaaS is a cloud subscription solution for healthcare provider SMEs to design, development, deployment, operation and optimization mobile apps for real-time cognitive support. Real-time cognitive support is required for positive transformation of medical practice and healthcare delivery; because cognitive overload is arguably the root cause of medical mistakes, which are the third leading cause of patient deaths in the USA after cancer and heart disease (https://www.bmj.com/content/353/bmj.i2139) and number 250K - 400K annually in the USA and 4M globally. Adoption of DIY mobile apps by healthcare provider SMEs will result in significant improvement of medical mistake mitigation, case outcome optimization, healthcare delivery cost-effectiveness, personal health management and medical knowledge accrual. Audio-visual presentations of CHARTSaaS and the Handoff Communications use case ...
Rentable electric scooters are often found in many large city centers and on college campuses for use as environmentally friendly transportation. Unfortunately, The Journal of American Medical Association reported that 40,000 injuries and 29 deaths are related to e-scooter accidents. The safety concern causes many people to fear e-scooters and some cities to ban the use of this valuable mode of transportation.
The Collision Alert Technology for Scooters (CATS) is an “active safety” solution integrated into rental electric scooters. CATS uses sensors and controls to detect potential hazards in the path of the e-scooter. CATS then alerts the e-scooter rider of such hazards so that they can take action to avoid a collision. The CATS solution identifies hazards like ...
As the core of a modular, optionally-manned, single-stage-to-orbit, reusable, trans-atmospheric spaceplane; this combined-cycle engine which operates on JP-7 jet fuel, and either air or LOX; functions as an Expansion-Cycle Turbojet for takeoffs and landings (for noise reasons). Then transitions through Pulse-Detonation Turbojet, Pulse-Detonation Ramjet, Supersonic-Combustion Ramjet, and Pulse-Detonation Rocket as it accelerates into earth orbit. Thus, fulfilling the promise of the X-30 National Aerospace Plane, and an economically viable Space Transportation System feasible.
The engine uses expansion-cycle turbo-machinery (ala. REX-I&III) to drive the fuel and hydraulic pumps, generator, and selectively the axial-compressor or oxidizer pump. This is driven utilizing catalytic-regenerative-cooling of the combustion chambers, which endothermically cracks the JP-7 fuel down into Ethelene and Ethane; as done in the ...
Below is the equation for the resistance of a fluid flow system:
∆P/Ǭ=(q-W)/VǬ-ρ δv/Ā-(μA_⟘ dv_⟘)/ĀǬ-(ρA_h gδh)/ĀǬ
Where Ǭ is the total volumetric flow in the system; ∆P is the pressure difference across the system; V is the volume of the system; Ā is the area perpendicular to the flow; A⟘ and dv_⟘are the area and velocity difference parallel to the flow; Ah and δh are the area and height of the system relative to gravity.
Each term on the right of the equal sign represents:
The flow resistance due to energy (q) or work (W) done to or by the system.
The flow resistance due to a velocity change δv
The flow resistance due ...
The system calculates a predicted flight path. If the predicted flight path detects a potential CFIT situation, the pilot is given an aural warning and the display changes from passive flight following to a 3d look - out - the - window - on - a - clear - day picture. The screen shows the aircraft position, terrain/obstacle, and a visual display of the predicted flight path. Dangerous portions of the predicted flight path are depicted in red.
The pilot can see the safest way to alter the flight path to avoid collision (climb, turn, or a combination ...
The recent coronavirus outbreak worldwide created an emergency involving all countries In order to help fight the virus one of the most important early activities is to detect potential carriers through the body temperature monitoring, by individuating those with body temperatures higher than 37.5C.
In order to do a mass screening in short time and at a distance we are proposing the following system:
In our case an unmanned platform, a small airship (15/20mt) that can fly permsnently powered by a PV film to generate solar energy for its electric engines during the day and producing hydrogen for night utilization through a fuel cell system
A powerful infrared sensor, similar to those utilized in airports ...
Government mandates regarding COVID-19 abatement strategies are forcing companies to scramble to find ways to avoid fines and even worse local outbreaks. In this new age, documentation and data is going to separate companies who survive and those who struggle.
Ergonomics International’s mobile compatible software provides employers with the tools necessary to identify at risk employees, track those who are immune to COVID-19 or those who may be potential carriers. Employees can log their temperature at home on the mobile compatible software before potentially exposing coworkers to the illness. The employees baseline temperature, whether taken at home or the workplace, is logged into the database for trending. This allows companies to identify upward trending temperatures as a leading indicator ...
