A device like FieldLogix can even alert drivers and fleet managers on towing and after-hours driving. Some devices can even track stolen trucks and cargo.

    Happy drivers, happy truck

    A majority of truck tracking gadgets also monitors the status of both the drivers and the trucks. These devices provide speeding notifications based on the location and monitor the driver’s compliance. Some even give reports on the driver’s driving trends and speeds. With this, companies can keep an eye on their drivers’ behaviors and thus, reprimand and reform dangerous driving practices.

    Aside from the driver, tracking equipment also ensures that the truck is in good shape. Smart trackers monitor the engine’s health and status and alert the driver whenever a part needs fixing. Moreover, some devices also notify the driver of the truck’s maintenance schedule. This can help companies reduce their costs on vehicle repair as there is constant surveillance.

    With the benefits listed above, a tracking device is definitely a lucrative investment. Real-time reports and updates can surely help a trucking company monitor and oversee the condition of their trucks, cargo and drivers. This constant checking can help them improve their system by consistently removing the chinks in their armor. Technology has definitely helped trucking companies provide a faster, more competent and reliable service to their customers.

In order to protect a person from the diseases that are carried by mosquitoes, people purchase insect repellents or mosquito nets.A very good option is Mozzie band in Australia, a silicon-based wristband that keeps away mosquitoes, sand flies, midges and insects.

The mosquito Aedesaegyptiis known as a carrier of dengue, Zika virus and yellow fever.

    According to James Becnel, an entomologist of Mosquito and Fly Research Unit of USDA, Aedesaegypti was the reason for the limited Florida outbreaks of dengue in 2009 and 2010. When there are health emergencies, different strategies are used t control mosquitoes like the application of a pesticide sprays through trucks or aircraft. However, it is important to understand the magnitude of insecticide resistance before an effective control program can be undertaken.

    A first statewide study was made by a collaborative group from the USDA-ARS, Navy Entomology Center of Excellence, Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and Florida mosquito control districts. They measured the scope of pyrethroid insect resistance of Ae. Aegyptiand Aedesalbopictus. These are other species of mosquitoes carrying the chikungunya virus. Resistance to pyrethroid insecticides in many locations all over the world can have a negative on mosquito control operations.

    The 4-year study that was published in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases revealed that resistance to permethrin, an insecticide in the pyrethroid family was present in the 20 strains of Aedesaegypti collected all over the state. In order to effectively control the resistant populations, 60 times above the susceptible levels of permethrin doses must be used.

    Mosquitoes are present outdoors and it is important to wear Mozzie band in Australia to enjoy a summer picnic or family camping. The wristband is natural, non-toxic and DEET-free. It is safe to use and effective up to 48 hours.

  • Business, Home Improvement, Service, Tips Comments Off on Robot Built To Hang Plaster Walls

    Japan is known for their state-of-the-art inventions especially in the field of robotics. Their latest achievement is a robot that is designed by a team of researchers for the sole purpose of hanging plaster walls. This is not the time for plasterers in Sydney to worry yet because while the robot works, its capacity is very limited.

    The news of a new robot developed came as good news for Japan after Honda made an announcement last June that it is no longer pushing through with its plan to develop the Asimo humanoid.

    Thanks to the team of researchers working under the Advanced Industrial Science and Technology or AIST, they decided to pick up the challenge and continue working in order to create the HRP-5P.

    The robot plasterer works by getting a sheet of plaster from a pile placed at one side of the room where it is working. Then, the robot plasterer walks to the place where the plaster is supposed to be hanged and then puts it into the correct position.

    This is not the only robot in the construction industry. The first one was Hadrian X which was a bricklayer that could lay a maximum of 1,000 bricks every hour as it works on a single structure. The second robot was the AutoSaw which was designed to cut as well as carry timbers which are to be used for walls. The most recent is the HRP-5P which was designed to carry out tasks for the interior.

    AIST revealed that the main reason why they developed HRP-5P is to make it carry out tasks that are dangerous without human intervention. The robot is 182 cm in height and the weight is 101 kilograms. It has the capacity to carry objects that are as big as tatami. It makes use of object recognition as well as environment measurement technology to place the plasters in the correct position.

    According to AIST, they created the robot with the partnership of a number of private companies such as Kawada Robotics. The technology is still at the beginning stages and plasterers in Sydney will still be required for harder tasks which cannot be accomplished by the robot.
