Fire Fighting Drone
(2024) Mazen Quzmar; Laith lshtaya; Jaad Hussien
In a world where fire accidents are increasingly common and the brave first responders always risk their lives to save others’ lives. Unfortunately, history tells that these brave first responders do not survive most of the time. To save as many lives as possible, it is important to leave dangerous tasks to machines. One such device is a drone; it provides great maneuverability and doesn’t risk any personnel. Drones can also gather information at greater speed, reliability and are also able to drop items OR fling it. Thus, the solution mentioned below will help us solve this problem along with the functionalities mentioned below. The capstone project, “Fire Extinguisher & Fire Fighting Drone” is designed to assist the bureau of fire protection to correspond during fire outbreaks. Drones can be a solution for the fire fighters to take decisions about where to concentrate resources and how to approach and enter the scene. A drone mounted extinguisher balls, thermal camera, can be employed in an emergency situation where human intervention is not possible. The fire balls shoot into the flame, where it activates and spread a dry powder fire extinguisher agent. These fire extinguisher puts off A, B or C class fires. Thermal imaging camera can be used to sense the presence of fire and detects the presence of people who were trapped in the buildings in fire situations even in the presence of smoke. Thermal cameras can detect the presence of trapped capsulitis which be seen through naked eyes of fire fighters.

Energy generation using palm waste for Heating applications, case study for Palestine.
(2024-02-25) Ahmad Abuarra; Dirar Hara; Firas Mnasour
Abstract Date palm trees, especially Alhayani, Barhi, and Majhool, have a rich history in Palestine. However, the waste produced by these trees, such as unripe dates, date pits, and palm fronds, is usually burned on farms, leading to environmental concerns, or collected them inside the farms for long periods, which leads to the emergence of the red date palm weevil, which works to damage palm trees.These wastes are a significant source of excellent biomass that can be used in many applications such as energy production, livestock feed, fertilizer for soil, and wooden boards, and can even be used as insulating materials. This project focuses on utilizing agricultural waste from date palm trees in Palestine by grinding and transforming it into wooden blocks for use in heating, bakery ovens, household wood stoves, and other applications. The effectiveness of these waste materials for use as excellent heat value resources has been demonstrated, especially when compared to other tree waste. The heating values for date kernel (17.1267 MJ/Kg), palm leaf (16.8873 MJ/Kg), and palm frond petiole (15.9897 MJ/Kg) indicate their promising potential for use in heating applications. A feasibility study was conducted for a production line that converts these waste materials into wooden blocks for use in heating applications. The annual profits were estimated at approximately 150,240 NIS, with a payback period of around 2.4 years and a return-on-investment rate of 36.3%

Adding a new smart block production line for a brick factory
(2024-02-25) KareemKalboneh; KhalilHawash; ZaidJrab
Abstract An established factory is considering implementing a new production line for smart blocks, which adopts a new kind of concrete block that allows easier installation and reduced manpower to handle them. Still, this type of block is considered new and hasnever been seen before in Palestine,which makes it more challenging to introduce a new product to the already established industry.The addition of this production line will allow the factory to diversify its product offerings and potentially increase its profits by challenging the traditional block in price, handling and quality. Data analysis shows that there is a high demand for concrete blocks in the market from a questionnaire done and implemented in the study in the form of facts and conclusions implemented in every detail, and the implementation of this production line is likely to be financially viable. The new line will be efficient, with a high output and low waste. It will also utilize the latest technology to ensure the highest quality concrete blocks are produced, enabling the business to challenge the traditional thoughts of construction projects.In conclusion, establishing a production line for concrete blocks in this established factory is a good business decision. The high demand for concrete blocks, combined with the efficient and technologically advanced nature, makes it a promising opportunity for the factory to increase its profits and broaden its product offerings.

MedHero
(2023) Alaa Hamayde; Hadi Nassar
Most elderly people need to take their medications at precise times throughout the day, so if sons are gone all day it may be challenging for them to remember to give their parents' medication. Additionally, some elderly individuals may have Alzheimer's disease, making it much more challenging for sons to remember. Additionally, during an epidemic, the patient can find it challenging to speak with others directly for fear of infecting them, and he might get so exhausted that he forgets his prescription appointments. These factors led us to create our invention as a medicine reminder device. Workflow for the project: A blynk app that sets precise dates and times for administering medications according on the type of fixed medications required throughout the day. The machine that sets certain days for administering medications at specified times in accordance with the type of medication required throughout the day is the project's operating concept. medication is based on the patient's medication kinds(Acamol, Cetamol, exforge, asprin, Concor ,trofin), and the administrator also establishes the medication dosages. Each type of medication has a distinct area for disposal, so that When the time for the medication arrives, the dose is administered at the designated location, then a notification received on blynk app that alert thers is a medications dispensed, at the same time there is an buzzer alarm at each date. Additionally, this device has a water supply to take the medicine dose, it also has a sensor for the cup's existence(laser sensor), and there is also a sensor to alert the administrator When the amount of medicine or water in the tank is approaching.
