Engineers Develop Drones to Protect Elephants from Poachers

2019-06-10T11:09:52-07:00

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 been a huge contributing factor in capturing poachers. Tracking elephant movements are also easier thanks to drones, and the intelligence they have gathered have provided local authorities with evidence to make arrests. Since elephants are repelled by the buzzing [...]

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 : Engineers Give Pros and Cons of Double and Triple Pane Windows

2018-12-17T15:54:39-07:00

Have you decided to invest in replacement windows? What made you finally decide to take the leap? Was it the incredible energy saving benefits new windows offer? If so, you’re not alone. For a typical home, 40% of the annual energy budget goes toward heating and cooling costs, and replacing the windows in your home is great way to keep more of that money in your pocket. Since energy efficiency is such an important fact to consider when getting replacement windows, we are often asked, “How much better are triple pane windows than double pane windows at saving money on energy bills?” This is a great question, and definitely an important question to address. But, deciding between these two window [...]

Mechanical Engineers Say Proper Ventilation is Crucial for Your Small Business

2018-10-26T09:39:38-07:00

Engineers Explain How Good Ventilation Helps Your Business We’ll start with a fact that often startles people: (indoor air quality is a major health threat in the country).  According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the air quality inside buildings is often 3 to 4 times worse than the air outside. This goes against what most people think air pollution is like— fumes from cars and smoke stacks casting dark clouds over cities.  Heavy wall insulation, tightly fitted, non-opening windows ( Window Efficiency ), and commercial synthetic carpeting in modern buildings allows for the rapid build-up of contaminants inside without the chance to escape. Proper ventilation in your business that was designed by a licensed mechanical engineer(Licensed Mechanical Engineer ), is a key [...]

Electric Vehicle Batteries: Recycled

2018-07-18T14:04:45-07:00

  Material Scientist Ponder What to Do With Used EV Batteries  As electric vehicles become mainstream, mechanical engineers and chemical engineers are trying to address the big environmental question: what do we do with the used lithium-ion batteries? The batteries used in electric cars are physically large, last 8 to 10 years, and will account for 90 per cent of the lithium-ion battery market by 2025.  This will increase lithium demand fourfold, and more than double the demand for cobalt — two of their essential elements.  The price of cobalt has already risen by more than 80 per cent in 2018.   Most expert Material Scientists agree that a replacement hybrid car battery can range from $1,000 to more than $6,000.  The [...]

Semiconductor Record Fab Spending 2018

2018-05-14T10:33:13-07:00

Good News for Materials Scientists - Semiconductor Record Spending Fab spending reports show unprecedented high semiconductor equipment sales are being driven by a handful of well-known companies, and also by several new Chinese companies entering the semiconductor marketplace. An increase in overall fab spending (greenfield construction and equipment together) of 54 percent year-over-year (YoY) in China is expected.  Total spending in China rose from $3.5 billion in 2016, to $5.4 billion in 2017, and then is anticipated to be $8.6 billion in 2018, another 60 percent year-over-year (YoY). The demand for Materials Scientists to develop manufacturing processes and engineers to install and maintain the equipment will be huge as well . Fab Spending is Beyond Silicon Valley China-based companies [...]
