Load shedding and the increasing price of electricity means that the National Grid is no longer a reliable and cheap source of power. Frequent power shut downs are bad for business, industry as well as agriculture. A group of students from School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, NUST, thought of something which could help reduce the load on the national power grid and at the same time reduce dependency on non-renewable energy sources.
Last semester saw creative SEECSians making projects to solve small and big problems around them. The projects, most of them designed using microcontrollers, were made by undergraduate electrical engineering students of School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, NUST. If you are an electronics enthusiast, or crazy about technology, go ahead and read about some of the best works made.
Give a toddler more than the necessary dose of sugar at night and you will see how it simply refuses to go to bed after that. If you have just the right amount of bad luck, your toddler might even manage to turn over the entire house before it gets sleepy. This is why every mother knows better than to give her child a high dose of sugar in the evening.
The most recent DelFly model, the DelFly Explorer, made in 2013, is an autonomous flying robot that can fly on a chosen height for up to 9 minutes without any external control. The DelFly Explorer is the only Micro Aerial Vehicle that flies by flapping its “wings” like a dragonfly would do. The reason this robotic dragonfly is so awesome is its incredibly light weight; only 20 grams.
