Most software projects fail or are abandoned before circulation costing government agencies and commercial business millions of dollars. Our tool concept is  to assist in code generation to prevent fatal bugs and to also ensure quality, useful code is produced. Standard metrics will be used to provide basic reports about the code but programmers will also be able to generate custom metric scrips in python to generate more specific reports. The reports will be used as a measure of overall quality of the source code and pin-point problem areas before code release. For agencies that inherit code, running the tool will aid programmers in understanding the source code and will save time in restructuring.

As the total number of personal robots deployed globally is increasing in the world, the automation of manufacturing—process control application growth—has driven this increase along with the desire to spare people from risking their health in any dangerous, dirty, and even difficult situations, such as rescue robots, military robots, cleaning robots, and space exploring robots. 

Thus, it is clear that as the robot population grows, the ability to manage robotics remotely, and more specifically over the Web, will have increasing value, too. Recognizing this trend and the increased use of personal robotics, for example, the iRobot, Roomba and Scooba, Google and Willow Garage teamed to announce in 2011 that they have launched a "cloud robotics" initiative, with fully supported software and hardware. The initiative includes integration of Willow Garage OpenCV with Robot Operating System (ROS) code and the development of PR2, a personal robotic system that is cloud enabled. My personal

Many of the world’s greatest ideas have been conceived, not at a desk or in an office, but on the fly. Some of our most pivotal ideas were first sketched onto an old napkin, squeezed into the footnote of a book, drawn out in the dirt. Engineers and everyday problem solvers commonly use briefly drawn pictorials to convey ideas on the spot. They are generally much easier to understand than a verbal explanation and can be easily modified as the idea evolves.

            The purpose of the combat slate (c-slate) is to take the concept of idea pictorials to the battlefield. Before going into combat, units commonly plan movements and strategy on a terrain model kit (TMK) to visualize the situation. This is good for initial planning in a safe zone but not as practical for improvised solutions in the field. The c-slate will be a small electronic pad that team leaders can use to sketch out anything from a coordinated movement to the location of a hidden enemy. Multiple c-slats will be connecte

A local public school uses 80 GHz microwave radios for high bandwidth wireless connectivity to nine campuses. At the top of the tower an 11 GHz microwave radio connect the district to the internet.  Some links are over 6 miles apart, and are very susceptible to wind and tower movement.  These microwave radios have a very narrow beam at0 .4 and 0.9 degrees.  Therefore, any movement degrades the reliability and stability of the communication, adversely impacting all the campuses.

 

Lockheed Martin has the experience and expertise, to design a system that would bring these links to the next level of reliability.  Technologies that are used on aircraft external infrared sensors or cameras to stabilize vibrations could be applied in this application.  It could include in the design to take wind variance and tower movement data to constantly adjust and keep the antennas perfectly still, in any condition.  This device could communicate with each other and GPS, on each side of the link, to i

You're in the food service and beverage business. You want to bring your product to the innercity and small business communities.  Money is low so you don't have the funds to purchase a food truck or the company wants to get their product to more people that are ON THE GO.  This is the product for you.

This is a mobile unit that can be propelled in two ways.  One version (lite) can be pushed.  The other version (deluxe) is peddled by foot.  

The lite version will allow fruits and canned beverages to be left COLD using dry ice.  The deluxe version will add a cooking unit to the front which can use propane tanks.


Cold Unit- Good for canned coffees, other cold beverages and fruit.

Hot Unit- Good for pancakes, pre-baked pastries, and other light foods.         


The unit provides various opportunities for licensing product to sell.  It also allows for more businesses to license the On the Go Cart within their companies.

My idea is to make a tool/app that will allow people to speak to it in one language  and have it translated in a diffrent language. This idea is simple enough to actually make a reality with modern day technology and software. Without going into too much detail about what its going to look like or what its going to be called im sure you can see how ready the would is for something like this. Todays markets are ready for the a easy to use tool like this and im %100 we can do this. I have everything worked out so that we will generate money/cash in a few month and we could also see a full return on are investment in under a year. Please allow me the opportunity to go over my plan at how we could enter a marker of over 450 million user that have no ideal they will use this. We dont even need to get anything like that to achave are goal of making a successful "company".

An effective information ecosystem is one which fosters communication and content for users. Consider the Internet, an example of an excellent ecosystem that enables us to generate, manage, retrieve and search information, communicate with others, do business and much more. This produces a network of people who are more informed and empowered. On the other hand, since a large majority of the developing
world has relatively little or no access to the Internet, they are unable to be part of such an ecosystem. We present an infrastructure for creating a very similar ecosystem which would enable people with low-end feature phones that can’t connect to the Internet to generate, manage, retrieve and search information, be social, do business, exchange knowledge and much more. With a lab experiment, we show that this infrastructure is intuitive for information access/sharing and provides more actionable interface than traditional SMS based search systems. We also discuss the appropriatenes

Introduction

This concept article describes a modularized robotic Space Debris Collection Framework (SDCF) that could use other optional third-party ideas / products to achieve affordability. One such idea is the Zero Propellant Maneuver Attitude Control Concept [1] for fuel efficiency, but it is not essential to this proposed concept. The SDCF is the proposed innovation, and a concept video on the space debris collection process is shown in the included video.

The SDCF consists of two types of spacecrafts; the debris collector (DC) robot and the base craft (BC). The BC acts as a centralized communication portal between the DC, mission control, and other information relevant to the space debris collection process (e.g. information from other debris tracking projects). The communication and sensory modules on the BC are optimized for long-range debris identification, while the navigation module on the DC is optimized for short-range navigation. Some signal processing is required to overla

Input technology that relies on vision limits computer access for some and reduces a persons ability to multi-task safely.  If the keyboard keystrokes are scripted to the movements of our  fingers, tactile input can take any shape that conforms to our finger tips for simple touch-computing.  move one finger twice or one finger and than another in sequence and you can provide 100 unique keystrokes, enough to emulate the keyboard.  This technology is described in detail and is the subject of the current Design News "Gadget Freak" on-line article http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1362&doc_id=249848  
By moving from a system of many dedicated keys to one that is limited to sequential human touch, you will be able to watch where you are going and not be distracted by looking at a gadget in your hand.  This can improve safety in texting and provide access for people with special needs.  Another advantage is that once this system is learned, a user can move from a variety o
