An Alternative Crank Engine

This product innovation relates to the internal combustion engine and proposes a significant step forward in improving performance, fuel economy and emissions by changing the thermodynamic cycle of heat transfer into useful work whilst retaining all existing technological infrastructure and costs.

A monitoring system to allow early detection of damage to high tension power lines. Using Acoustical Emission (AE) techniques on high tension power lines for early detection of internal damage or fraying before the cable breaks.

Cable "Galloping" (low frequency, large amplitude, vibration caused by high winds),

Named Best Foot Protection Product of 2020 by ISHN, SelectFlex is still the world’s first and only arch control insole. With the turn of a key, the original SelectFlex insole provides 3 adjustable levels of arch support for personalized comfort.

Molten Metal Reactor Technology – Prospects in Sustainable Hydrogen Production

Globally, Hydrogen (H2) has been consumed for a variety of purposes, majorly as a feedstock or raw material and for the refining process. However, recently,

The benefits of using Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) in braking is already evident from motorsports and production hybrid-electric vehicles. Another area that has a high potential for KERS implementation is the suspension system.

This idea comes from our web article “Turbocharged Zhou Engine” (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/turbocharged-zhou-engine-jing-yuan-zhou), and our invention PCT/CA2014050106 (Japan granted JP6574447, and patent-pending in other countries). So we are working on it.

This invention, Zhou Engine,

Requirements for the Dart

As a design approach we used the axiom of,

Requirements for the 3T

As a design approach we used the axiom of, "make something you would want to use" and balanced that against existing technologies with strong performance so that a realistically functional and dependable device could be made.

Summary
We designed air-powered circuits to control the rhythmic motions of a walking robot without using any electronics. Our research was featured on the cover of Science Robotics and in various news articles including Tech Briefs magazine.

PROBLEM:

Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (ultraviolet C or UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. UVGI is used in a variety of applications,
