Engineers Develop “Iron Man” Suits – Coming to Factory Floors

2019-02-21T10:38:16-07:00

Full-body exoskeletons will give workers super strength. What’s the most important things for people to know about the full-body exoskeleton, which can turn an assembly-line worker into a superhero?   Engineers have been working on this wearable robotics technology since 2000, when engineers began cobbling together experimental super-soldier suits for the U.S. Military. A 2010 prototype, which enabled the wearer to punch through wooden boards, earned the nickname “Iron-Man Suit” in the homage to the high-tech gear in the eponymous comic book and movies. But that bulky version kept the user tethered to the wall by a power cord, something that would presumably interfere with superhero activities and the suit remained in R&D.  Finally, the suit is coming out with a commercial [...]

Part 2: Business Engineers : 7 Things to Consider, Before Investing in a Personal Robot

2019-01-30T09:26:32-07:00

So you’ve made the decision, robotics process automation (RPA) is for your business. You’ve winnowed down a list of suitable vendors and are ready to start some serious shopping. Great. But before you plunge right in, there are some final things to consider.  The following is a list of questions for would-be buyers to which they should give serious thought to before moving forward. They range from the existential — what role will your employees play as RPA expands within your organization? To the practical, such as training time frames. 1. RPA Tool Selection is Less Important Than You Think The actual tool itself is not that important for most companies, especially those that are just starting with RPA. What [...]

Part 1: Mechanical Engineers Say Driverless Cars are the “New Talk of the Town”

2018-11-13T10:03:57-07:00

Major giants inside the automobile industry have already show cased few of their self-driving car technology and many car companies aim to roll out production vehicles with driverless capabilities by 2020. In just a few years, industry experts expect fully autonomous vehicles to follow the trendThe implications autonomous driving will have on insurance matters and legal outcomes of accidents is just one grey area to be explored as we move towards a more automated future. Experts are making some big claims about the future impacts of driverless cars. Before they arrive, check out the comprehensive pros and cons list.   Advantages of Driverless Cars Without the need for a driver, cars could become mini-leisure rooms. There would be more [...]

Part 2 – Mechanical Engineers Recommend 7 Features on ‘New Age” Refrigerators

2018-11-07T10:09:55-07:00

Mechanical Engineers Update Tomorrow’s Refrigerator: Here are Your Choices  Black Board Models  Black board models are ideal for young families. Shopping list, school timetable and forthcoming doctors' appointments – all readily visible because they are stuck to the door of a refrigerator using fridge magnets. A black board fridge-freezer is a more stylish way of displaying your messages and reminders as you can write directly on the door using school chalk or liquid chalk markers. The black board material makes it easy to wipe away the writing.      2.    Glass Fronts New fridge models are doing away with handles. These sleek units offer seamless visual integration with handle-less cabinetry design. Models with glossy glass surfaces in brilliant white [...]

Engineers Test “CHP” – Combined Heat and Power

2018-09-04T12:40:22-07:00

Figure 1. Self Sufficient Home with Combined Heat and Power Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Engineers combined heat and power (CHP) systems, also known as cogeneration, generate electricity and useful thermal energy in a single, integrated system. CHP is not a technology, but an approach to applying technologies. Heat that is normally wasted in conventional power generation is recovered as useful energy, which avoids the losses that would otherwise be incurred from separate generation of heat and power. While the conventional method of producing usable heat and power separately has a typical combined efficiency of 45 percent, CHP systems can operate at levels as high as 80 percent. Some micro-CHP technologies use mechanical engines, such as internal combustion [...]
