Energyharvesting bracelet could power wearable electronics

center_img Ring and bracelet system designed to help the hearing-impaired The researchers, Zhiyi Wu and coauthors at Chongqing University of Technology and the China Academy of Engineering Physics in Sichuan, have published a paper on the energy-harvesting bracelet in a recent issue of Applied Physics Letters.”The energy-harvesting bracelet could potentially be used to help power activity trackers, smartwatches, and even some health-monitoring applications,” Wu told Phys.org.The bracelet works due to electromagnetic induction, in which the interaction between a moving magnetic field and an electrical conductor generates a voltage. Inside the bracelet’s outer shell, electrically conductive copper coils wind around an inner shell. Inside this inner shell are two moving magnets that rotate around the bracelet in response to the wearer’s wrist movements. As the magnets move through the copper coils, they generate a voltage due to electromagnetic induction. The researchers explain that, according to Faraday’s Law, the amount of voltage generated is proportional to the number of times the magnets rotate around the bracelet. So the faster the motion, the greater the power generated by the bracelet. Tests showed that the magnets can move with an average rotational velocity of between 100 and 300 revolutions per minute, depending on the type and intensity of the wrist movements. The researchers also demonstrated that, from a single shake of the wrist, the bracelet can charge a small capacitor to approximately 1 volt in a fraction of a second and generate an average power of more than 1 milliwatt.One of the advantages of the bracelet design is its symmetry, which allows it to transform motion in any orientation into the rotational motion of the moving magnets, and also does not require the magnets to be in any particular initial position. Other types of electromagnetic energy harvesters, such as those in the shape of tubes or flat objects, have limited degrees of freedom and only work in certain orientations. “The greatest advantage of the bracelet is that it can transform translational motion in any orientation into rotational motion, starting from any initial position of the magnets,” Wu said.In the future, the researchers plan to investigate several different areas. One idea is to use a circular magnetization magnet to fabricate the magnets. They also want to further reduce friction in the bracelet and introduce triboelectric energy-harvesting technology to utilize the remaining friction.

Gurgaon to have university schools for girls Khattar

first_imgHe was addressing the people in a function organised in the Government College for Women of Sector 14, Gurgaon. He inaugurated a multi-purpose hall constructed at a cost of Rs 7.26 crore within the college premises and laid foundation stones of three other projects, including the construction of a new science block and teaching block in Government College for Women and DSD Government College and the extension of district library in Gurgaon. All these three projects would cost about Rs 10 crore.The Chief Minister approved almost all the demands put up by the local MLA Umesh Aggarwal. He said that Gurgaon needs a University and the proposal received will be put in the pipe line. On the issue of providing basic amenities to the people residing within 900 meters of Ammunition Depot, he said that the matter is pending with the High Court and the government would plead on grounds of public interest in the High Court.last_img read more

Swine flu claimed 66 lives in JuneJuly Nadda

first_imgAs many as 66 people have lost their lives due to swine flu (Influenza-A H1NI) in the last two months, which was more than the toll during the same period last year, Lok Sabha was informed on Friday. Union Health Minister JP Nadda said that the June-July period also saw 740 swine flu cases being detected across the country, adding that during the same period last year, 45 people had lost their lives out of 220 detected cases of swine flu. “All the reported deaths may not have occurred only due to Influenza A H1N1 infection but may also be due to co-morbid conditions and the patients being immuno-compromised,” Nadda said during Question Hour. The minister said the recent cases were being reported from few states which have informed that they have sufficient stock of drug ‘Oseltamivir’. The Ministry has also kept an emergency stock of Oseltamivir.last_img read more

Modi woos US investment promises to remove bottlenecks

first_imgKicking off his second visit to the US in one year with a meeting with eight of the top 10 financial entities in the US, including JP Morgan and Blackstone, Modi outlined efforts made during the last 15 months to increase investment in key areas like infrastructure. He outlined the government’s reform agenda as well as improving economic climate and said: “Any bottleneck  which should not be there, will not be there.” Also Read – Punjab on alert after release of excess water from Bhakra damThe GDP growth last year was 7.3 per cent – among the highest in large economies world over, he said. Also, there has been a 40 per cent jump in foreign direct investment (FDI).World Bank, International Monetary Fund and Moody’s say the economic climate is bound to improve further, MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup quoted the Prime Minister as telling the one-hour-long roundtable. CEOs, he said, shared their concerns as well as experiences of doing business in India. Also Read – Union Min doubts ‘vote count’ in Bareilly, seeks probeThe Prime Minister “took on board” suggestions made by the executives as he outlined the sheer scale of development that will happen in India and the “tremendous opportunities” it offers to foreign institutional investors and for FDI.Swarup said the Prime Minister assured the investors that “work is already underway” to resolve concerns of doing business and investing in India.Swarup said some of the concerns raised by investors are that there is still some bureaucracy left, deregulation has not been as fast as they had expected. On the REIT side, they had some concerns about taxation policies, bankruptcy laws and deregulation and wanted faster pace of infrastructure development. He added that these were not new issues and the Prime Minister is fully aware of them. Modi has asked the CEOs to give him a detailed note on all the points and concerns raised by them. “Prime Minister Modi appreciated the fact that they had aired these issues and he was very committed to working to resolve them,” Swarup said.He said the companies manage billions of dollars and most of them have exposure to India. “This was a very good opportunity for the Prime Minister to listen to their experience of dong business in India, see what concerns they have and how we could work to remove those,” he said.Swarup added that the CEOs voiced their appreciation over the steps taken by the government on ease of doing business, economic growth and reforms and “were very bullish on India.” On concerns over land acquisition, Swarup said the Prime Minister has set a target of constructing 30km roads per day, increasing it from the current 13km. This, he said, will be possible only when there is land available and “we are trying to get political consensus on the issue.”The CEOs noted that India has a lot of potential for investment and acknowledged that financial market reforms have already started and more reforms would happen in the days to come. PM Modi to meet Obama, leaders of other nations Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet US President Barack Obama and top leaders of a dozen other countries during his stay in the American city over the next several days, officials said. In his meeting with Obama – the third bilateral between the two leaders in about on eyear – the Prime Minister will discuss bilateral, regional and global issues and decisions taken by the two governments during the recently concluded inaugural Strategic and Commercial Dialogue in Washington DC. “They (Modi and Obama) will discuss a range of bilateral, regional and global issues. Economic engagement will certainly be a part of things being discussed,” Indian Ambassador to the US Arun K Singh told reporters. “There would be discussion also on the political, bilateral, regional and global issues,” he said.last_img read more
