As COVID-19 has shown, challenge and crisis cross borders – impacting everywhere on Earth. However, innovation and ingenuity are also not constrained by geography. Detection of COVID-19 is an opportunity to find and apply the best and brightest of humanity. We're going to improve our design replicable, low-cost tool and resource to aid viral detection of the COVID-19. Computer vision as Deep Learning with OpenCV is used here, and can serve as a backup to the work done in the laboratory.

What're the goals of this project? 1) Detecting COVID-19 in X-ray with OpenCV; and 2) Detecting COVID-19 Virus Cells with OpenCV.

What hardware we have used? 64-bit Windows 10 PC, Raspberry Pi 3B+, and Jetson Nano.

First, we ...

The present invention relates to design and fabrication of new supports; which are in fact polymer-metal composite supports for finger, foot and spine. They are made of a soft polymer with inserted sheets of aluminum, steel or carbon-fiber. The optimal models are strong, and allow for size and finger position adjustments, and can be used for patients who already have distorted fingers and are working on them to regain some functions. These accommodations have not been addressed by any current finger or foot support and currently, there are no support in the market which can accommodate these advantages. The available supports are made of rough fabrics/Velcro straps, or thermoset plastics without any flexibility. Also, most of them cannot be ...

Problem
Neurodegenerative dementia is a disease that progressively deteriorates brain functionality. One of the most common symptoms of dementia is memory loss. In addition, patients usually lose the ability to solve problems or control their emotions and present changes in personality and normal behavior. Covid19 exposed the failure of our care provider systems for this vulnerable population. Over time, people with dementia are unable to properly perform the basic activities of daily living such as maintaining personal hygiene or food. One type of dementia is the Alzheimer disease. Estimates pointed that in 2006 there would be 26.6 million people worldwide with Alzheimer’s disease, and this figure will be three times bigger by 2050. On that date Alzheimer will affect ...

The advent of digital camera’s have rendered many fine, quality film based 35 m/m cameras obsolete. Many consumers and photographers still own these film based camera’s and would desire to continue using them.
 
The re-useable digital camera adapter is an innovative opto-electronic consumer product device that replaces 35 m/m film and can be inserted into conventional film based 35 m/m camera allowing the camera to capture and store images in a digital rather than film based format. The market for a device that allows a standard 35 m/m camera to capture images in digital format could be huge. Purchasing such a device would be a cost effective way to preserve and elongate the life of these fine legacy ...

Social distancing is ultimately about creating physical distance between people who don’t live together. At the community level, it means closing schools and workplaces and canceling events like concerts and Broadway shows. For individuals, it means keeping six feet of distance between you and others while in public and avoiding physical contact with people who do not share your home. Although schools, offices and businesses already had shut down to slow the spread of coronavirus, the park was packed in Boston, according to the New York Times. People walk in groups close to each other even if there is very large ground surface area. This is because it is very hard to program ourselves to keep the 6 feet ...

Underwater divers may swim in waters with limited visibility. Commercial divers may operate at depths where sunlight does not penetrate.

Sonar images could be presented on a organic led emitting diode screen which replaces the diver's normal mask. The proposed mask covers the entire view of the diver. If the diver switches off the sonar, the visor is transparent.

Graphics could be added to the much like an aircraft head up display. Critical information such as air supply or directions could be presented to the diver. If the system included and inertial navigation unit, it could significantly increase the safety of ...

As it becomes apparent that the COVID-19 virus can be exhaled as an airborne pathogen, it becomes equally important to protect oneself from inhaling the virus in its bioaerosol form.

Proposed is a downdraft visor, the device worn as shown provides a steady downdraft stream of filtered air across the wearer’s face. A rechargeable battery unit powers mini-fans to draw in ambient air through a milli-pore HEPA filtration cartridge directing it downward in front of the wearer’s face.

The constant stream of filtered air directed across the front of the wearer's face at 50ft/min provides sufficient airflow to prevent exhaled aerosolized droplets of the COVID-19 virus entering the user’s airways via the nose and mouth into the lungs.

The device can be ...

As per title drones can be used as a power bank to recharge the drying batteries of sensors.

A drying battery will send a signal to recharge it and the drone will be ready to fly to recharge the battery of sensor by detecting the location of sensor.

The drone can be designed in this way that it can recharge multiple batteries.

The drone can also be designed in this way that the drone can replace the drying batteries with already recharged batteries .but there will be requirements of some changes in the sensors.

We can also designed a Ground vehicle power bank like drone power ...

Satellite communication (SATCOM) systems need to operate in challenging and hostile radio frequency (RF) environments in the presence of unintended and/or intended RF interferences (RFI). For military and commercial applications, it is important to develop advanced RFI mitigation and anti-jamming (AJ) capabilities. Key enabling technologies for such capabilities include advanced RF situation awareness and adaptive dynamic resource allocation (DRA).

The Intelligent Fusion Technology, Inc. (IFT) team has developed EDGES, an Electronic Defense Game-Theoretic Engine for SATCOM. A hardware add-on for SATCOM Ground Control providing Electronic Defense (ED) in hostile RF environments. EDGES performs per-hop in-service signal-to-noise (SNR) based RF situational awareness using dynamic game theory-based DRA algorithms. EDGES has been developed for the wideband global satellite system (WGS) and ...

What is Electric Vehicle Regenerative Acceleration?

Electric Vehicle Regenerative Acceleration is a new US patented EV innovation that allows electric vehicles to recharge themselves as they drive without the deceleration effects associated with regenerative braking. The innovation accelerates the EV while recharging the vehicles batteries in Regenerative Acceleration Mode and is the exact opposite of regenerative braking.

How does it do that?

Electric Vehicle Regenerative Acceleration introduces a Load Current Delay into generator coil operation which reverses the electric vehicle regenerative braking paradigm.

How long has it been around?

The original discovery was made in 2007, the backing theory was developed at the University of Ottawa from 2007 – 2010.5 and the innovation has been under development since then. 3 US patents have been ...
