To test designs of new, sensor-packed airbags, the federal government plans to use a whole family of crash dummies. Currently, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires automakers to pass crash tests for air bags using only dummies representing adult males. Next year, the agency will issue regulations that will add dummies of a small woman, 6- and 3-year-old children, and a 12-month-old infant. The new dummies will contain more instruments for mimicking human responses and measuring injuries in crashes. For example, the Hybrid III 6-year-old dummy has a multi-segment, highly instrumented neck. Auto manufacturers already use dummies of children in their own testing of airbags. For design engineers, NHTSA will publish manuals and digital descriptions of the patterns and molds of each dummy. E-mail NHTSA's Barbara Hennessey at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
While traveling with your full family in a tour you might have to use the bag because it is necessary for you to take different materials in it. But sometimes people also demanding fo the more materials to take with them . In order to prove it the government strted a survery and tries different Custom Tote & Bags that it can really handle a lot os material o not. But he found yes this bags are enough to take useful things for tour.
Unlike industrial robots, which suffered a slight overall slump in 2012, service robots continue to be increasingly in demand. The majority are used for defense, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); and agriculture, such as milking robots.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
Design News and Digi-Key presents: Creating & Testing Your First RTOS Application Using MQX, a crash course that will look at defining a project, selecting a target processor, blocking code, defining tasks, completing code, and debugging.
These are the toys that inspired budding engineers to try out sublime designs, create miniature structures, and experiment with bizarre contraptions using sets that could be torn down and reconstructed over and over.
