Battery Charging Technologies

Over the decades, smart phones and other devices have become technologically advanced with each passing year but power limitations are severely restrictive. The battery hasn’t witnessed the kind of advance that other devices have. But all that may be changing now.

It is only now that big technology companies such as those making electric vehicles are becoming aware of the limitations of lithium-ion batteries. The maximum recharge duration of the best Smartphone is limited to less than 60 hours while operating systems are becoming more and more power efficient.

Universities around the world are making huge investments into a plethora of studies, research and discoveries. However, in spite of the many developments that have taken place especially in the last two decades, the ‘perfect replacement’ has not yet been achieved. Manufacturing techniques cost huge amounts and any additional changes come with huge costs.

But we may see huge changes as early as 2017 with superfast 30-second recharging and over-the-air charging likely to start trending.

Some of the path-breaking discoveries and technologies could be those that

Mechatronics

Mechatronics, the term coined in Japan in the 1970s, has evolved over the past 25 years and has led to a special breed of intelligent products. What is mechatronics? It is a natural stage in the evolutionary process of modern engineering design. For some engineers, mechatronics is nothing new, and, for others, it is a philosophical approach to design that serves as a guide for their activities. Certainly, mechatronics is an evolutionary process, not a revolutionary one. It is clear that an all-encompassing definition of mechatronics does not exist, but in reality, one is not needed. It is understood that mechatronics is about the synergistic integration of mechanical, electrical, and computer systems.

One can understand the extent that mechatronics reaches into various disciplines by characterizing the constituent components comprising mechatronics, which include: (i) physical systems modeling, (ii) sensors and actuators, (iii) signals and systems, (iv) computers and logic systems, and (v) software and data acquisition.

Engineers and scientists from all walks of life and fields of study can contribute to mechatronics. As engineering and science boundaries become less well defined, more students will seek a multi-disciplinary education with a strong design component. Academia should be moving

The Fundamentals of Digital Signal Processing

We take a look at some of the fundamentals of Digital Signal Processing.

What is DSP?

Digital Signal Processors (DSP) take real-world signals like audio, video, voice, temperature, position or pressures that are digitized and then accurately manoeuvre them. It is designed for performing mathematical functions like subtract, add, divide and multiply very quickly.

How they work

Signals from real world sources are converted by Digital Signal Processing into digital data that can then be analyzed. The signals will be usually in analog form. Study is performed in digital form because when we reduce a signal to numbers its mechanism can be manipulated in more detail than when they are from real world sources.

The digital data can be converted into an analog signal with enhanced quality when the DSP has completed its work. A DSP can intensify frequencies, sort noise from a signal, and hold back others.

Types of Audio Signal Processors

Signal processors can be single- or multi-functional, digital or analog, or incorporated with other components in a sound system. Most were unconnected devices, but became multi-functional over time with digital signal processors integrating a wide range of functions

Things You Need To Do To Record Good Audio

If you already have a pair of high quality studio monitoring speakers yet are still making crappy audio, then maybe you’re doing a few things wrong. Here are 8 things you can do to achieve the results you want:

Record with good-sounding instruments
Before you start recording, you need to make sure that none of the instruments are faulty or out of tune. If an instrument needs new strings or heads, replace and tune it before the session. Old guitar strings also sound bad, so you might want to restring your guitars as well.

Avoid recording your guitar with reverb
You should only record your guitar with reverb if it’s absolutely necessary and if you’re 100% sure that you’re not going to change it during mixdown. Otherwise, you should record it dry, especially if you don’t really think it’ll fit with the arrangement. If the guitarist can’t play without reverb, you can make up for it by adding some to his headphones from your software.

Avoid recording in the red
Digital clipping makes a recording sound bad, and once you do that you can no longer go back and fix it. This is why you

Technology Has Broadened Teaching Horizons

There is a race against time for classroom teachers to avail of the power of technology in delivering knowledge and all to their learners. If some of them are not adept at using technology in the classroom, chances are learners are in disadvantaged in learning against the ones who have been learning through the aid of technology.

This is why, during summer, teachers are trained to become knowledgeable in using technology in the classroom. In fact, just recently, selected teachers harnessed their skills in using Microsoft Mix, Sway, Prezi, to mention just a few. Expected output from said trainings would be for teachers to create lessons– for effective and efficient delivery, learners will surely be motivated to learn and teachers themselves will be more inspired to teach with high impact, both through presentation and assessment purposes.

To ensure global education for their learners, a creative and would-be technology savvy classroom teacher must have the following prerequisite skills:

First, booting up and shutting down desktop computer or laptop.

Second, doing necessary navigation–from using the cursor or arrow up, down or what.

Third, setting up a projector.

Fourth, making slides for presentation purposes.

Fifth, recording

Artificial Intelligence in Industrial Automation

Artificial Intelligence (AI) probably means sci-fi movies with robots and computers performing inconceivable human tasks. While this is partly true, what AI truly brings to the table is enabling machines to carry out intelligent tasks. As the challenges faced by global decision makers skyrocket, there is an urgent need to propel businesses and societies forward using the most modern technology. With the world changing at an unprecedented speed, businesses need to revamp and restructure how machines and humans work. And AI is helping meet those goals. According to Forrester, Cognitive technologies such as robots, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and automation will replace 7% of US jobs by 2025.

The Changing Dynamics
The manufacturing sector is characterized by an environment full of uncertainties and evolving dynamics. With ever growing market volatility, manufacturers need to constantly innovate, adapt and respond to changes in the quickest time, without hampering the quality of products, and at the least possible cost. The efficiency of a manufacturing system closely depends on how well shop floor processes respond to changes. Critical shop floor functions such as production scheduling and maintenance have to be extremely responsiveness, and their integration is what will result in

Characteristics of Availing Cloud Services

Explaining the services it can be said that these are any services that the users can avail on their demand from the internet. These services are made available from a cloud computing provider. The essential features of the services are described underneath.

1. Rapid Elasticity

The capabilities of the servers are elastically released and provisioned. They scale rapid inward and outward movement in accordance to demand. The capabilities accessible for provisioning to the consumers appear to be unlimited and can be appropriated with any quantity at a given point of time.

2. Resource Pooling

The computing resources of the providers are shared so that it can serve several consumers by the use of the multi-tenant model. The physical and virtual services are dynamically assigned and reassigned according to the needs of the consumer. It has a location independence sense. This means that the user does not have knowledge or control over the exact location of the resources that are provided. They are able to specify location at a higher abstraction level in some cases. The examples of the resources are mainly memory, storage, network bandwidth and processing.

3. Measured Services

However, the technology is expected to spread across the board and it will dominate all consumer applications. For instance, it will offer better products in the search results so you can find the right one.

2. Automation

Today, marketers will be happy to know that the automation will make it easier for them to improve their production processes. Now, the automation will allow them to get those tasks done that were only done by humans previously. In the next few years, robots will get advanced and they will perform complex tasks.

Automation will make some jobs disappear while creating new ones. When machine learning is combined with automation, you will see things getting better before long.

3. Big Data

For the past couple of years, big data has been a topic of debate. The idea is that the huge amount of data that we can use

Technologies Changing the Way People Interact at Home or Work

Technology such as the web and using chatting, mailing and social media with its aid are rampant everywhere. Now that they are easily accessible at home or work, how do people actually interact? Read on for highlights
Communication and interaction with other people at the office suffers and if it catches the eyes of the Boss, the person having fun on the web seriously jeopardizes himself/herself and their reputation. There is every possibility they will be laid off when it is time for the office to downsize its employees.

Chances are you have an internet connection on your cell phone and also at home. If you commute to your home by bus or train, then you can browse on the phone while you are traveling. Later when you reach home, freshen up and have supper, you can use your home IPAD, TAB, Laptop or PC to browse over the web or use social media.

Do not overuse the web and its applications. There are lots of little beautiful things to do in this wide world. You can put your son to sleep by reading a bedtime story. You can feed your kittens. You can read a

Effects of Living in a Technological World

Washing machine to do your laundry and so on. In the outside environment you love your partly auto-driven car. At the office you are probably accustomed to your PC and laptop with the mighty reign of internet and network and digital tools to enhance your work and projects. You probably cannot imagine your life without them.

What could be the long-term effects of these? Simply you get reliable and dependent on these and accustom yourself to the more modern versions of them. As a result, you get to exercise your brain less, become less independent and become rather lazy.

It is all the machines and technologies doing all the work for you and you have less work to do in a way. On the other hand, keeping them tidy, maintaining and managing them in workable condition become your additional burden. But if you are happy with this option, you are good to go.

In case you are unhappy, get rid of them and start working manually. But I guess you wouldn’t like it either. It is best to go for the earlier option and fall into pace with the modern era.

As for keeping

Gradually computers are taking over many of our tasks

The number 1 option for humans would be to enjoy life more and spend quality time with family. I once heard of a millionaire who worked for 15 days in a row in the middle of the year and he was free to enjoy life after that.

His work for the year was complete within those 15 days and those very tasks completed during the time would help his company to generate good revenues for the year. 15 days’ work did the magic and he was free for the rest of the year.

Something similar would happen to all the humans over the course of twenty or thirty years from now. That’s what I predict.

If it can happen to millionaires now, it can happen easily to the average human over two or three decades from now.

So what will humans do in so much spare time? Spending quality time with family, enjoying life and eating good food are all okay. But he still needs to feel important and do something that gives him the mojo of life.

It is completely up to the individual to decide. He can make his life more

Stop Thinking About Technology

Please stop thinking about technology for a while. This article gives you seven ways for that. Read on to find out.

Here they go:

1) Life is not only about cell phones and digital screens. The more you focus on them, the more UV rays radiating from them deteriorate your eyesight and may even lead to blindness. It is so much better to spend time, cuddle and chitchat with your family members for a greater while.

2) You don’t want to be contacted every five minutes by your family or friends. Switch your cell phone off and enjoy the scenes and sceneries around as you drive on the highway. Let your hair down, drive carefully and enjoy the beauty of life.

3) There are so many fun activities to do instead of sitting slump on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and watching the TV. Be active and join the volunteers team of your community and do some volunteer work for instance, mowing the highly grown grasses of your environment and planting new seeds for growing trees. Working as a team and spending time in mother nature will definitely raise your spirits and
