    SmarTap has been developing a new technology for the next generation of thermostatic electronic faucets. This technology enables the user to monitor and control the water consumption in his property in real time. Shower systems based on this technology offer a unique shower experience combined with safety features and water and energy monitoring and saving capabilities. The systems supply water at the desired temperature and flow without wasting it: the shower will discharge water only at the desired temperature and flow.

    Technology:

    An electronic scale is disclosed which has multiple overload protection features for protecting the load cell and a weight distribution plate from excessive strain due to vertical overload on the scale or from twisting resulting from an article being placed thereon which exceeds the load capacity of the scale or from excessive forces due to mishandling of the scale. A first overload protection is in the form of a boss molded into the base of the scale on which the free end of the load cell abuts if an excessive load is placed on the platter of the scale.

    Background: Batteries represent a large portion of required maintenance for electronic devices. It is expected that this maintenance burden will only increase with the number of sensors we employ. There is a clear need for a self-maintaining long lasting alternative to batteries. Imperial Innovations has filed patents for the designs of an energy harvester. These are simple and inexpensive devices able to collect inertial energy and convert it into electricity for output in the tens of microwatts range.

    Biofuel cells represent a class of fuel cells whereby electrodes are modified by enzymes which help catalyze highly specific oxidation reduction reactions. The device of this invention converts chemical energy contained in the blood of an insect into electrical energy to power electronic circuitry mounted on the insect that can transmit signals wirelessly to an external receiver while allowing the insect to move freely.

    Technology:

    Scientists working at NDSU are developing biodegradable sensors capable of directly monitoring and reporting the soil environment in which they are placed. The sensors are constructed by using NDSU’s patent-pending “direct write” electronic printing techniques to print circuit and antenna patterns directly onto renewable bio-based materials. The circuit patterns are printed with trace amounts of metallic materials such as aluminum that are safe for the soil when the sensors naturally biodegrade over time.

    Stanford researchers have designed a novel pomegranate inspired hierarchical structure which improves the energy density cycle life Coulombic efficiency and cost efficiency of silicon-based anode for Li-ion Li-O2 and Li-S batteries. The prototype successfully demonstrated superior cycle life (1000 cycles with 97% capacity retention) low electrode/electrolyte contact area for improvement of Coulombic efficiency and increased tap density.

    Project ID: ENG0098A Invention Description and Novelty: A common requirement for large stacks of electrochemical cells used in electric and hybrid vehicles is the need to measure individual or groups of cell voltages almost simultaneously. The principal problem with current techniques of voltage measurement is that a small error in measuring the nodal voltages translates into a large relative error in the measurement of segment voltages. This technology provides an electronic circuit for measuring voltage signals in an energy storage device.

    Background:Wireless power transfer (WPT) based on magnetic coupling is becoming widely accepted as a means of transferring power over small to medium distances. WPT systems show promise for charging electric vehicle batteries electronic devices and other technologies. Stationary wireless charging systems have relatively high efficiencies (>90%) if the source and receiver coils are well aligned.
