Integration of a novel micro-sensor system into a standard industrial hard hat. Industrial Human Augmentation Telemetry (iHAT) is a self-contained system including: nineteen individual micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) sensors grouped into three appliques, microcontrollers, microprocessors, RAM data storage, a flip-down visual display screen and a rechargeable battery pack that is linked together via wireless sensor network (WSN) technology. Adapting for use in armbands, wristbands, head bands & clothing panel inserts. Modifying for use with enhanced safety glasses/goggles & face shields. Interfacing with power tools and machinery health usage monitoring systems. Incorporating into industrial clothing that augments the human user with additional proactive safety enhancements i.e., work gloves with sensor-activated pneumatic bladders for vibration damping. Merging cognitive and physical augmentation to allow the user to have ‘on demand’ capabilities i.e., user controls ‘when’ and ‘how much’ augmentation is required for a task.
Disclosed is a product and method to quickly and accurately measure the total static and fluctuating magnetic flux Φ passing through a large area. A uniform oscillating current flows down the measurement area interacting with magnetic flux to produce Lorentz forces at each point proportional to the magnitude of the current and the magnetic flux to be sensed. Lorentz forces are transferred to piezoelectric areas (PVDF) that produce voltage on top and bottom electrodes in response to the changes in tension. Existing sensors are essentially point flux density (B) sensors and many measurements must be taken to integrate B over the area.
A new, non-explosive generated pressure pulse for novel surface treatments and production of new materials. Possible applications to new Solid Lubricants, Anti-Friction Coatings, Textures, Absorbents, Chemically Reactant Surfaces
