It is a building to where people can run to save their life from tsunami. Built along the shore between 500 m - 20 000 m from the beach where tsunami potentially happened. Please, look at illustration FORTH_3 to understand it.

The technology proposed is a road kill reporting app for smart phones and to manage a database of the reports. This app would allow people to easily report road kill sightings. According to American Road and Transportation Builders there is a total of 4.05 million miles of roads in the USA. This makes continuously and reliable reporting road kill a significant challenge. For a task this large, one of the only options is to use a community based solutions. By creating a simple way for community members to report road kill sightings, the amount of data can be significantly increased which will lead to a better understanding of road kill problems in America and the rest of the world.

 

What is the value of creating a road kill reporting app and database?

In 2010, the annual cost of road kill in America alone was found to be 8 billion USD. Every nation with a system of roads encounters similar problems. There are programs around the world that are trying to better our understanding of road e

“PIVODRIVE”

 

 

This innovation is designed to improve automobile traction capabilities and improve road safety.

 

PROBLEM

            It takes quite some time and delicate maneuvers to effectuate a u-turn moreover a lot of space is eaten up on the road during this process, momentarily obstructing circulation.

            With this innovation, drivers will be able to carry out u-turns with ease and in less time. It will require vehicles with four wheel drive capabilities for this innovation so as to give it a stronger upfront pull.

FEATURES

For this to be possible, the traction mechanism of vehicles will have to be equipped with a wheel blocking mechanism for the rear tyres, such that only a single rear wheel can be blocked at a time.

 

PRINCIPLE

            Once one of the rear wheel is blocked such that only the rest three can move, and after the steering has been turned such that the tyres incline to a given direction, the car effectuates a pivoting movement

To reduce the speed of an airplane or jet plane, a set of light weight bellows are mounted and stored on the fuselage in a position such that as the need arises for a sudden reduction in speed, the bellows are injected with air from the compressors of the main engine which causes the bellows to inflate and forcing a moveable plate forward and upward at the same time.  The resistance to the movement of air along the fuselage would cause the plane to slow down considerably in the event of a landing problem (I.E. aircraft landing, engine or mechanical failure or airport collision avoidance) thus enabling the pilot to better control the aircraft’s flight.  After the speed is reduced, the bellows configuration would be placed back in the storage position for continued smooth air flow along the fuselage and regained control but at a reduced speed.  This design has minimal weight added to an aircraft since the design of the bellows would be such that the flexible components can be fabricated

We live in a world where the threat of terrorist attacks and cataclysmic natural disasters are always present. Following every tragedy, the same question comes up: What could have been done better? What if a technology existed that could render that question obsolete—a technology that allowed efficient and timely responses in situations where seconds can mean the different between life and death? The Integrated Emergency Services System (IESS) is the technology to do that.
 

IESS will be a GPS-based network in which real time information on the location of every emergency service (fire, police and ambulance) will be in location and will allow for the quick assignment of resources where they are needed. The system will automatically calculate the quickest route to the location of the emergency and will provide the route on the GPS inside the responding vehicle. The responders will not have to think about where they are going, thus saving time. In the case of major tragedies, the system

Many people in this world are far behind the real knowledge about what is right and what is wrong. Have you ever considered what a person really needs in his life and from the world? If you look at Maslow’s Hierarchy, it will give you the basics. At the bottom of the pyramid, are the physiological needs (air, food, water, shelter etc.). Then, they need safety. A person must feel that he/she is safe physically, emotionally, financially, is stable and has no fear of any kind. After this state, come love-belongings, self esteem and self actualization. In today’s negligence world, some people have everything except for security and safety. Many factors have contributed people to become selfish, ignorant and illiterate. These includes poverty, inflation, terrorism, loss of jobs, overdue debts of governments, load shedding, political and military instability in many countries, economic crisis, over population, and others. A person can survive with these problems except he would be worried ab

One of the main concern for infrastructures maintenance is the fear from damages created by irresponsible diggings. Failures in water supply, electricity supply, telephone and internet, and even sewer handling may occur when a digger had worked in the wrong place or dig to much hitting an underground infrastructure pipe. 

The idea is to introduced a combined safety system to synchronize between heavy construction machinery and infrastructural networks. Each relevant construction tool shall be equipped with a location and activity monitoring device which shall be interconnected with local authorities servers. As infrastructure maps are usually a sensitive knowledge that their owners would not want to reveal, the monitoring device shall perform a query toward the infrastructure servers to know whether it is safe to dig in the area it is located and if not, what is the maximum depth it is allow to dig.

Such synchronization is good for everyone:
- It reduces infrastructure maintenance costs

Introduction

 

The Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), see attached picture, is used by firefighters and other first responders to provide breathable air when working in contaminated atmospheres.  SCBAs represent a major part of firefighters' personal safety equipment, comprising approximately 20 out of 50 pounds.  As a result, it is essential to reduce the weight as much as possible since firefighting is a very demanding profession and every pound saved contributes to his or her performance and safety.

 

There are approximately 3 million SCBAs in use worldwide, of which 1 million are in use in North America.  For firefighting the predominant SCBA is a so-called Open Circuit SCBA which uses air as breathing gas.  In the U.S., most SCBAs in the fire service are 30-minute rated units.  The rating is done according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) regulation and is based on 40-liter air consumption per minute that corresponds to medium (250 W) w
