In the competitive business world of today, companies must be able to respond to demands instantly. They need to find methods or ways to speed up production, ensuring that products can hit the market on time. One area where this is important is in building prototypes. Across different industries, engineers that design and manufacture products require custom prototypes for checking, testing and other technical purposes. Prototyping is often required as an important part in the process of releasing a new product design.
In the technologically developed world we live in, it is hardly a surprise to find out that it is possible to use satellite technology together with cutting-edge data analytics to solve many of the world’s problems. This tends to help us plan for the future by making better, informed decisions. By providing new insights to business problems using the best available data tools such as satellite imagery, computer vision, pattern recognition, machine learning and other scientific methods, scientists can provide a more accurate understanding of the problems facing businesses. The insight these technologies provide is then used to predict events and enable informed business decisions to drive growth, decrease costs or gain a more significant market share. Not only does the technology help a business grow financially, but also allows it to make environmentally conscious decisions to help it analyse the sustainability and societal impact of its investments and decrease negatives effects on climate change.
Geo-fencing is commonly known as a location-based service. Within this type of geo-fencing, an app or other software uses WIFI, RFID, and GPS data to trigger a pre-programmed operation. When a mobile device enters or exits the virtual boundaries established by a geographic circle, is called a geofence. How a geofence is formed depends on many factors. Below are some of the factors that can be implemented by creating a geofence.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is highly regarded by law enforcement officials for its efficiency and versatility. It is used for parking management, gated housing area surveillance, highway and toll monitoring, and other purposes. Even though ANPR is a great tool, it may not provide 100% results if installed poorly. It can read vehicle number plates only if you set it up correctly, keeping several factors in mind. So, here are some expert insights to modify your ANPR setup to make it super-accurate.
People can’t live without the Sun. In fact, they could, but the question is how long it would take. Without the Sun, humanity would probably disappear very quickly. The star closest to us is the source of life. Also, it is increasingly becoming a significant factor in the global economy. Investing large funds in solar energy is something that happens on a global scale. One of the main reasons for this is the increasing global pollution. It’s a result of the overuse of fossil fuels. The world ‘cries out’ for alternative energy sources. Leading global economies are spending large funds on implementing solar power in all industry fields. Street lighting that works on the principle of solar panels is an innovation that many countries use. Especially ‘sunny’ countries, like Puerto Rico, are investing in these technologies. Given that high return on investment is possible here and Puerto Rico solar street lights are a ‘bright’ example that other states should follow.
Cooling towers are mainly used to cool and retain water for industrial use. While the quality of a cooling tower’s construction largely determines its durability and capacity to store water, other factors, such as its regular maintenance, will go a long way in increasing its overall efficiency. The benefits that come with having a fully-functional cooling tower are diverse, but two highly important ones are that it reduces energy costs, as well as the amount of time and chemicals needed to treat the water inside the cooling tower.
Electrical discharge machining (EDM) is a thermoelectric method of removing metal from a workpiece through a series of sparks between the metal and the workpiece. It is considered a non-traditional method because it does not need mechanical force in the removal process, which is in the same way as laser cutting. An electric spark discharge (thus the name) is used as a cutting tool to cut (erode) a workpiece to a desired final shape in EDM. Thus, EDM has been the preferred method for complex and high-accuracy machining applications that would be difficult or impossible to perform using conventional metal removal processes. Here, we’ll discuss more on what EDM is and how it is used.
