3D Printing Sensor-Stents

Description

This paper summarizes the [1] ideas behind, [2] needs, [3] development, and [4] testing of 3D-printed sensor-stents known as Stentzors. This sensor was successfully developed entirely from scratch, tested, and was found to have an output of 3.2*10-6 volts per

This paper summarizes the [1] ideas behind, [2] needs, [3] development, and [4] testing of 3D-printed sensor-stents known as Stentzors. This sensor was successfully developed entirely from scratch, tested, and was found to have an output of 3.2*10-6 volts per RMS pressure in pascals. This paper also recommends further work to render the Stentzor deployable in live subjects, including [1] further design optimization, [2] electrical isolation, [3] wireless data transmission, and [4] testing for aneurysm prevention.

Measuring and Profiling the Magnetic Field Produced by Live Current in Power Transmission Lines with the use of a UAV Mounted Sensor

Description

This project details a magnetic field detection system that can be mounted on an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The system is comprised of analog circuitry to detect and process the magnetic signals, digital circuitry to sample and store the data

This project details a magnetic field detection system that can be mounted on an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The system is comprised of analog circuitry to detect and process the magnetic signals, digital circuitry to sample and store the data outputted from the analog front end, and finally a UAV to carry and mobilize the electronic parts. The system should be able to sense magnetic fields from power transmission lines, enabling the determination of whether or not current is running through the power line.
