GPS Like Systems for Flexible Medical Robots.

Today's world is known as the world of technology.  In this modern age, all areas have changed a lot with the help of technology, technology has given a new way of life to human beings, and technology has made human life much easier ... Engineers are constantly contributing to different fields to make human life easier and happier.  The field is one of the most important fields in this field  Isomorphous have been changed.  These radical changes have been made possible by technology, various sophisticated equipment and technology have made a lot possible. 
           There is a growing need for state-of-the-art equipment for operations in the medical field. Engineers have developed a new technology to solve such a problem. This technology works like GPS.  The technology was invented by Tania Morimoto, a professor of mechanical engineering at the Jacob School of Engineering in UC San Diego and Ph. D student Connor Watson from the Mechanical Engineering Department. 
              Morimoto believes that continuum medical robots can work very well in a constrained environment, They are very safe and easy to use than rigid tools. But after entering the body, it is very difficult to track their location and know their shape. And if we can track their location, it will be very important for the doctor and the patient. A magnet embedded in the tip of the robot can be used in delicate places in the body,  such as Sinoatrial node and  Atrioventricular Node in the heart.  We are working with a growing robot, which are robots made of very thin nylon that we invert, almost like a sock, and pressurize with a fluid which causes the robot to grow," Watson said. Because the robot is soft and moves by growing, it has very little impact on its surroundings, making it ideal for use in medical settings.
               As GPS RECEIVER trace the location of the smartphone and determine where the smartphone is located. Similarly, researchers used existing magnet localization methods that work like GPS, with a computer system that detects the location of the robot. In this system, four sensors are spaced around the area where the magnetic field strength is to be measured. Researchers know the amount of magnetic field required around the robot embedded with the magnet. Based on the intensity and strength of the magnetic field,  researchers get to know the exact location of the robot. The system consists of a robot,  magnets, and magnet localization system total costs $100.
             With further Neural Network Analysis,  Morimoto and Watson get to know how sensors respond and what should be the response of the sensor to the location of the robot. This analysis helps to increase the accuracy of the locations of the tip of the robot.

Contribution of Engineers to Fight Against COVID-19.

Now the day's world is facing an outbreak of a pandemic. The whole world is affected by the consequences caused by COVID-19. It badly affects public health and the economy of the nation, to survive in this critical situation we must have to stand together and fight against this deadly virus. To get out of this situation we have to follow some safety measures and for that public awareness is a must. As we are lucky enough that various sectors showing their active participation and giving helping hands to help us. The technical sector is one of the examples of a group of peoples who started doing various social welfare activities in terms of technology.
IIT Guwahati showing its keen participation to fight against COVID-19
Various departments from IIT Guwahati started researching in their respective fields and areas. Out of which Mechanical, Electrical, Bioscience and Bioengineering plays an important role in developing scientific equipment for diagnosis and safety. It is also in the pr…

The Nanotechnology

Introduction:        The word nano is derived from Latin word nanus means dwarf and GreekNanos which is referred to as a very small or smallest. The term Nanotechnology is a combination of word nano and technology. Nano means the smallest and Technology means method, systems, and devices which are the result of scientific knowledge being used for practical purposes. Nanotechnology or nanoscience involves the ability to see and to control individual atoms and molecules something as small an atom is impossible to see with the naked eyes. The microscope for its study is invented about 30 years ago.
One nanometer is one-billionth of a meter  1 nm = 10^-9 of a meter.
There are 25,400,000 in an inch 1 inch = 25 million and  400 thousand nm
 A sheet of newspaper is about 100,000 nanometer.
          On a comparative scale, if a marble were a nanometer, then one meter would be the size of the earth. Nanotechnology is widely used in technical research and inventions. This field of science can be …

AI Based X-Ray For Diagnosis of COVID-19

The world is facing the global crisis of pandemic. In this situation health care facilities facing problems like staff shortages and overwhelming patient loads. Intense increment in loads of patients tends to work on for compensation of lack, this leads to finding the methods which help the Fastrack diagnosis process.  Researchers from various fields working on developing the methods and devices which help to Fastrack and accurate the diagnosis process.             Approval of the research depends on the accuracy of results and ease of use. Conventional diagnosis methods like Polymerising chain reaction (PCR) are having better results accuracy but the time required for the diagnosis of sample is more. So far in an emergency situation it is often difficult to check more samples in less time. Researchers got a solution to this problem in terms of new technology.             AI (artificial intelligence) is a booming area of research in various fields. The pandemic becomes the gateway for t…
