How Vehicle-To-Vehicle (V2V) Technologies Will Reduce Crashes

By admin, 11 August, 2013, No Comment

In the modern digital era, it seems that wireless technology can virtually be applied to any real life application. Road safety is something that can use the benefits of wireless communication between vehicles. The concept of vehicle to vehicle technology involves communication in real time between cars and trucks on the road. Such real time transmission of data between vehicles will hopefully improve road safety and lead to less accidents and traffic jams.

New Technology Trends In Public Schools

By admin, 11 June, 2013, No Comment

Public schools all over the nation have been adding new technology to their programs in order to keep up with the times, which is helping both students and educators significantly in many places. Even the smaller schools that are on tighter budgets have made major technology-related changes as of late, and many of these changes are incredibly impressive.

For instance, many schools have really boosted up the technology when it comes to school safety and security. For

Simple Inexpensive Methods to Save Energy for Your Business

By admin, 2 April, 2013, No Comment

Could your business use an extra few hundred dollars per year for marketing purposes or perhaps increasing some of the payroll for the employees? Depending on the size of your location, that is what you could save by practicing smarter energy conservation. For organizations that utilize a great deal of devices that constantly drain power, this savings could possibly be in the thousands.

There are several ways your business could save on energy costs using the technologies that are available. For instance, motion-sensing controllers in restrooms can reduce wasted energy by automatically shutting off the lights when they’re not in use. Power-over-Ethernet networking devices gain their power from the network switch itself reducing the need of power usage at those locations. Websites, such as http://www.texasenergycompanies.net/commercial-energy-products.html, can open possibilities for comparing rates on energy usage as well.

Developing a strategy for wasted energy could be a simple process of using a voltage meter plugged directly into power sockets. These meters will record the kilowatt hours used by anything plugged into them. It doesn’t take a handyman or an IT professional to install one of these units as they simply plug into the power socket. By using the sockets these units provide, you can monitor just how much power is being consumed by that particular area. These devices are also very useful to find areas within the home that could be addressed as well, and they are inexpensive at many hardware stores.

It’s common knowledge to turn off the lights when you leave a room to help conserve energy. However, the busy lives we lead tend to cloud our judgment and little things tend to slip our minds now and then. Timers can be installed on sockets and lighting equipment that will shut off the power once a pre-programmed time has lapsed. Some of these timers are based on actual clock systems while others are controlled by timed usage.

There are many ways that simple human intervention can save the energy costs of a business environment. Hibernation mode in a monitor will power it down when not in use. However, the monitor is still using power. It may not seem like a lot of usage when you’re dealing with one or two monitors sitting idle overnight. If your business incorporates tens if not hundreds of computers throughout the location, the usage of these “sleeping” monitors could be more than you realize. Multiply that by 365 days and your annual usage from these hibernating devices is probably costing your business quite a bit.

Emerging Technologies That Are Transforming Manufacturing

Industry and technology are ever changing. It is these changes that will chart the future. Below are a few emerging technologies that are currently transforming manufacturing everywhere.

1. Wireless Energy

One limitation on electronic devices everywhere is that they have to be physically connected to a power source. However, wireless forms of electricity are being developed. This could mean the end of the wall outlet and battery as we know it.

2. Carbon Dioxide as a Resource

Technology is rapidly expanding at an alarming rate with new developments on a weekly, monthly, and yearly basis that can greatly impact our lives. For Americans today, technology has greatly impacted methods of cooking and how we cook for our families overall, helping us to save time while also enjoying foods in most cases, much quicker than previous generations and their cooking methods.

A major technological development for American households was the microwave along with packaged and freeze-dried food which is readily available to cook and

The Pros And Cons of Wireless Energy Transfer Technology

By admin, 9 September, 2012, No Comment

Examining wireless energy transfer technology creates a sense of mystery and awe at the possibilities for the emerging tech. While the potential for benefits may astound, reviewing the theoretical downfalls might also give cause as to why this tech isn’t seeing more research and application.

Potential Benefits of Wireless Energy

The simplification of energy transfer and removal of wired “clutter” would be the first immediate benefit of wireless energy transfer, or WET, implementation. Mutual induction, a form of WET, would allow for docking stations where

Budget Tracking Apps For Finance Freaks

By admin, 7 September, 2012, No Comment

There are an abundant amount of apps out there. All that people have to do is look for them. Some of the apps are free while others are premium apps. Coincidentally, the free budgeting apps are also the most popular ones.

The idea of budgeting is something that is needed in homes today. Americans have become the worst managers in the world when it comes downs to money. It’s the wealthiest nation, but there are still so many people that fail to budget.

Much of the budgeting that people do is unrealistic. People allocate money on paper, but
