Dear Saxena ji,
Thank you for inquiry.
West facing windows can be a big source of heat, first measure which you...
Why all these are not applicable to Tuticorin port or the one planned in AP or WB ?
What an eye opener! As an environmental engineer,disposal of sanitary napkins has always been a concern during waste...
A ROBOT clerk that can turn pages,
load fax machines, staple documents, put office rubbish in bins and open
cans has gone on trial with severely
disabled people in the uk. Currently
on trail at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge, the us $5,0000 pc system
can be controlled by a joystick on the wheelchair, which has a two-way infrared link.
At the centre of the workstation
system, called raid (Robot for Assisting the Integration of the Disabled),
is an extended robotic arm. It can lift
up to four kilograms of any object and rotate it through several axis.
By using a pneumatic tool-changer and different heads, raid can cope
up with a variety of tasks. A general-purpose gripper can be used to
handle disks, drinks in glasses or
cans and other objects. A suction cup
is used for handling cds. The robot
can take a book from a shelf of 18
volumes of different sizes, put them
on the reader board and slip to the required page. It can also move and load cd-Roms and floppy disks. Any
standard pc accessory, such as a printer or scanner, can also be operated.
Nine of the workstations are now on trial in uk, France and Sweden. The target group for the system is wheelchair users who have insufficient manipulation capability for operating computer workstations unaided but who are able to manipulate a basic input device like a joystick, rollerball or click a switch.
The workstation should allow the user to become independent for a whole day's work. It also allows them to be independent at home and perhaps continue with their education or just sit for a few hours a day reading a book and listening to music without the need of a helper to turn the page or change a cd.
