Were developing a shoe removal detector which identifies and notifies a person entering the premises with shoes. Were developing it in a way to work as an intruder alarm as well. Though there are many intruder alarms in market this one includes shoe
We're developing it in a way to work as an intruder alarm as well. Though there are many intruder alarms in market this one includes shoe removal detector as well. Our main market focus is the people who are very concerned about hygiene and the people who have the custom of removing shoes outside the house such as chinese and indian people. There are some places like Hindu/Buddhist temples they insist to remove the shoes before entering. In such places this product can help a lot.

Until recent years, energy efficiency has been a relatively low priority and low perceived opportunity to building owners and investors. However, these days' with the dramatic increase and awareness of energy and environmental concerns, Highlighted issues like global warming and reducing carbon footprints for instance have made natural day lighting a rediscovered aspect of building lighting design. The actual physics of day lighting has not changed since its original use, however the building design to employ it has. Day lighting is often integrated into a building as an architectural statement and for energy savings.

With our technical status it is not possible to check the theories the scientists have in mind. The internet and virtual reality This result of our modern computerized society is certainly a future technology. The net grows and people are communicating with each other all over the world. The internet connected with virtual reality is the next step. Perhaps in the future business meetings 5 men and women will sit in front of their computers with I (Intelligent) -Glasses on 5 different places over the world but their eyes will see each other on a big table where they discuss problems.

These people are known as 'hackers'. (See appendix three) I would like to find out what the different systems measures are to protect the system are. I have thought of a few simple ones, none to complex: * Passwords-either users passwords or some of a greater level * Encryptions-why documents and such are in code so others can not read * Authorisation-why only certain people are allowed on a whole network of files * Firewalls-why some documents cannot even be viewed on a high security networks By following and gaining information on this system, I hope to undertake an understanding

All ideas and reports will be considered and marked according to their standard in a real project planning scenario. Objectives The obvious main objective with this specific project is to successfully move the MMU Business School to a new building situated on Oxford Road. There are a few following factors that are needed to be taken into consideration when considering this move. * The building needs to built and complete before the 20th May to ensure that the move can take place * This project needs to be completed before the start of the academic year beginning 2008/09 to ensure the students are able to commence or continue their studies * The site will offer all of the current

It is important that Sarah is blind having access to speech and Braille output devices. But access to this assistive technology is not enough. In order for them to benefit fully from this technology, the educational software, applications software
For example she had to read by hands from the book in this collection. She couldn't read them on-line if she owned or had access to a paperless. Braille Display device, she couldn't download them to read off-line either in hard-copy Braille or by loading them in to devices such as Braille note takers. She couldn't find individual parts of a book, an individual book, or an entire collection of books by a specific author simply by selecting the appropriate links on the specified pages. Braille means so much to her, but if she had to summarize it in one word it would be "independence".

Describe the benefits of technological developments in equipment and facility design in two contrasting sports Sport Football
It also has strategically placed mesh panels that promote air cooling where heat is most generated. Facility design features and benefits Retractable roof - The millennium stadium in Cardiff has a retractable roof which means that the roof can be closed if the weather forecast predicts heavy rain. This benefits the game itself and the fans. It saves the fans from getting soaked and it saves the players having to slosh around in mud. Mostly cup finals are played at the Millennium stadium and the fans wish the game to be viewed on a nice good to firm ground not a wet one.

Select either a qualitative or quantitative study, then make a critical analysis of it using any eight of the following categories: introduction, abstract, documentation, literature review, aims, context, research design, research methods, reliability.
The Aims are to establish cause and affect relationships, where experiments result in high levels of reliability. The research study will be critically examined and analysed in depth on the following eight selected categories; abstract, introduction, literature review, research design, research methods, reliability, validity and documentation. Abstract: An abstract can be defined as a paragraph that summarizes the whole study. The abstract is in essence a teaser (Dane, 1990, pp226), as readers will use it to decide whether or not to read the full report based upon the abstract. The abstract of an Quantitative study should provide a succinct, but a thorough overview of the research conducted, and it should specifically describe the objectives of the research; the hypotheses tested, the methods used, the statistical analyses of the data, the results of the study and the conclusions.

Robotics.There are many different types of robots used to do many different types of tasks, but all these robots are narrowed down to their bare minimum and all have the same principal behind them.
If the task was to be changed then the hard automation often becomes redundant and then may result in having to be changed physically by the operator to adapt its modification to suit the new task that has been set, or sometimes the components are used again on other applications, if this was to happen then the robot is cannibalised. Industrial robots have many objectives: they are programming, have multiples movements and interchangeable grippers. An operator determines the initial movements and actions of an industrial robot.

The presumptions regarding the application of Bernoulli's equation to this scenario are listed in the figure. In this situation, there exists a relationship between velocity, density and pressure. As a single streamline of fluid flows through a tube with changing cross-sectional area (i.e. an F1 air inlet), its velocity decreases from station one to two and its total pressure equals a constant. With multiple streamlines, the total pressure equals the same constant along each streamline. However, this is only the case if height differences between the streamlines are negligible.

The proposed design project is to design, produce and evaluate an innovative recycled clock, which is ascetically pleasing, and to work as a clock.
* The clock looks distinctively interesting and different and this will hopefully generate much attention and interest. * Once I have finished the clock it will be suitable to be hung on a wall and observed when the time is needed by anyone who is in the room with the clock. Purpose * The recycled clock will demonstrate how materials such as used and unwanted timber, wrapping paper and how it can be used to create a new clock with an interesting new look.

My product study will focus on a "smallish stereo-headphone cassette player" (Klein's description of an unfamiliar product,) commonly known as the 'Sony Walkman.'
WHAT DO I HOPE TO LEARN BY COMPLETING THE STUDY? The purpose of this product study is to analyse and illustrate the design and manufacturing aspects of the 'Sony Walkman,' that have been involved in its evolution and development into a timeless design classic. In order to learn about a design classic the following points should be researched: * History of the product * What the need was to be fulfilled which instigated the creation of the walkman * The design inspiration * The design decisions * The factors involved in manufacturing * Evolution of the product * How it
