Engineers Develop Drones to Protect Elephants from Poachers

2019-07-14T11:52:04-07:00

Herd of elephants bathing in the jungle river of Sri Lanka Drones have been used to ward off elephants from destroying crops because of their bee-like buzzing noise, they’re also being used to help the same animals from being hunted for their ivory in Africa. Since off-the-shelf UAVs can easily give pilots an aerial perspective, non-profit Mara Elephant Project (MEP) in Kenya started using drones to fight elephant poaching as far back as 2012.  How Have Drones Helped Curb Elephant Poaching? Drones are just one tool used by MEP Engineers, but they have [...]

Engineers Say Personal Robotics Will Become an Important New Category in Family Lives  I have the idea of a “sociable” robot—one that people can have relatively natural interactions with—has been the lore of science fiction for decades. From Lost in Space to Star Wars to WallE and beyond, interactive robotic machines have been the stuff of our creative imagination for some time. In 2019, however, I believe we will start to see more practical implementations of personal robotics devices from several major tech vendors. While several companies have tried, and failed to [...]

How Do Engineers Handle Rainwater? Engineers can help with proper fitting of gutters, or eaves troughs as they are called in some parts of the country. They are an important part of the drainage system around your house.  If yours are nonexistent, in poor condition, or improperly placed on your house, they could be causing problems and putting your home at risk of water damage. Gutters need to be installed properly so that they catch the water coming off your roof and channel it away from your house and its foundation. [...]

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 [...]

Engineering Advances: Degradation and Saving Electric Vehicle Batteries

2019-07-14T11:53:26-07:00

Degradation of EV Lithium Batteries  Battery degradation in Electric Vehicles (See Figure 1. to Right) leads to capacity fade, thereby shortening the vehicle’s possible range.  Patterns are beginning to emerge and provide valuable insight into EV battery capacity and lifetime.  Most drivers are retaining over 90% of original capacity Range Anxiety Some cars have a range of only 106 miles, equivalent to just over three times the average daily drive in the US. New Electric Vehicles are expected to have a range of up to 235 miles, a 220% increase, therefore, range is [...]

Samsung topples Intel as top dog semiconductor market share  Gartner beancounters say price rises driven by memory shortages propelled Samsung into the lead based on semiconductor vendor revenue, vaulting past Intel and its CPUs. The largest memory supplier, Samsung Electronics, gained the most semiconductor market share and took the No. 1 position from Intel – the first time Intel has been toppled since 1992. Memory accounted for more than two-thirds of all semiconductor revenue growth in 2017, and became the largest semiconductor category.  DRAM prices rose 44 per cent from 2016 [...]
