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 [...]

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

2019-07-14T11:52:33-07:00

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 [...]

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

2019-07-14T11:52:48-07:00

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 [...]

Semiconductor Worldwide: Samsung Takes Over

2019-07-14T11:53:35-07:00

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 [...]

Window Energy Efficiency: Solar Heat Gain and Visible Transmittance

2018-08-22T11:55:28-07:00

Conduction and Radiation of Thermal Energy In my last blog post, I wrote about the conduction and radiation of thermal energy through windows and the thermal transmittance value, called the U-Factor, that characterizes that heat transfer.  The U-factor is useful in evaluating window performance and making wise decisions when specifying components for a building, but it is only one piece of the puzzle.  The National Fenestration Research Council (NFRC) mandates a second value alongside U-factor in its certification process, called the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).  SHGC [...]
