Since the company was founded in 1920, there are few products Carling Technologies hasn't turned "ON" and fewer industries that haven't turned to Carling for solutions. With ISO and TS registered manufacturing facilities and technical sales offices worldwide, Carling ranks among the world's largest manufacturers ofcircuit breakers, switches, power distribution units, digital switching systems and electronic controls. Carlingis continuously forging a tradition of leadership in quality and product innovation to meet the demands of today’s fastest growing industries.
Whenever we hear the word “Tornado” we think of destruction and catastrophe. But, to one man it meant, “How can I generate power with that?” It makes sense. Most large scale power generation methods, directly or indirectly involve rotating parts and tornadoes possess a huge amount of rotational kinetic energy. So if we could create a tornado and harness its kinetic energy, it would effectively provide us with a clean source of energy (provided that it is controlled). Generally tornadoes are caused by the presence of a large temperature gradient present in the atmosphere.
It goes without saying that technology is highly responsible for transforming the world around us in so endless number of ways. Not only it’s growing at a faster pace but it’s also gradually leading us to a smarter and better future. The term that has lately become the talk of the town is Internet of Things i.e. IoT. We are completely surrounded by so many applications of IoT in our daily lives but most of us are not aware of them.
Interestingly, IoT was coined in 1999 by Kevin Ashton, a British entrepreneur, while he was working in his lab.
In this series of tutorials till now, we have worked on single side and two sided Printed circuit boards. Now let’s learn about multi layer PCBs.
Multi layer PCB contains at least three layers and above for example: 4, 6, 8, 16…..64- layers. Multi layer PCBs are especially used in case of the over loaded weight and volume. Apart from that these are mainly used in professional electronic equipment circuit designing and in complex circuits like military equipment, computers, mobiles, etc.
What if you lose your keys and get stuck outside your house in rain? You will have no other option except to barge in and in doing so, break some or other valuable item of your house. This could be avoided if you have already prepared some other gateway like triggering a garage door opener through a website hosted by an Arduino.
You are very much aware of the wonders of Arduino and when it is connected to a wireless network, it is accessible from your smartphone.
We all know that LDR (light dependent resistor) can be used as one of the most suitable light intensity detector because of its working principle. It works on the principle of photoconductivity. It’s made up of such material whose conductivity varies as per light falls on it. As more light falls on it, more number of photon strikes. The kinetic energy of photons is given to electrons - that makes more number of free electrons – that leads to an increase in conductivity of the device. Thus as light intensity increases, the conductivity increases (resistance decreases) and vice versa. So, the change in the resistance of LDR can be the measurement of the amount of falling light.
A smart city is the foundation for a smarter world. But what is smart city. What are we expecting from a smart city and how would it be to live in a smart city. The question are simple but answer to those are complicated. Let’s try to understand the answer in a simple way.
A smart city is an urban settlement with optimized, smartly managed and properly connected resources. A smart city present all its resources in a well-organized manner. A smart city combine technology, luxury and power consumption to make life much smoother and easier. Smart city install sensor based nodes at every possible corner of the city so as to get the update from everywhere through IoT.
