In this project, a new engine called as compressed air engine which does not require any of the conventional fuels, is designed and run on the compressed air only. A proto type, a horizontal single cylinder low speed engine was modified to run on compressed air. Since, this engine runs only on high pressure compressed air, the exhaust of which is undoubtedly only air, it is a zero pollution engine. No heat is generated because there is no combustion of fuel, hence this engine needs no cooling system and it results in reduced cost, weight, volume and vibration. Early cost analysis shows that it's very cost effective and the operational cost is one tenth of that of petrol or diesel engine.
Motive of the project is to introduce the ROBOTIC TECHNOLOGY in the field of Agriculture & Plantation and make use of SMART SYSTEMS for achieving better results by automating irrigation. The project titled as “Autonomous Garden Robot” is designed to resolve the issue of timely and precise irrigation of plants. It makes use of Infra-Red sensors for the control of its motion as it has been designed as a Line Follower Mechanism. It uses simple sensor based technology to sense the moisture level of soil and determines the requirement of water & then with the aid of programmable code in microcontroller and a micro pump, it takes the required action.
A pump is a device that moves fluids (liquids or gases), or sometimes slurries, by means of mechanical action. Pumps can be classified into three major groups according to the method they use to move the fluid: direct lift, displacement and gravity pumps. Pendulum is a simple body which moves freely until any damper is present. Hence, if the oscillation is forced, then it is possible to gain continuous movement. The objective of the project is to create the oscillation with the application of minimum energy. The link mechanisms have been used to attain the linear motion to run the pump from the oscillatory motion of the pendulum. The energy consumption of this system will be less as compared to the lever operated pump.
