This 10-Feet-Long Bike Made Out Of Junk Parts Is A Good Example Of Creative Engineering

Only a few see engineering as a wonderful field of study, even though a good majority of Indians opt it (or make others do) after school. We strongly believe that engineering is a mix of creativity and technicality, and here's a good example of the same.

Introducing the Adler Rider, a custom bike by Aurangabad-based Parth Kotak. Parth has made a 10-feet-long motorcycle entirely out of junk and spare parts.

Strictly for showcase only, Parth designed and built his very own motorcycle with the help of a friend. Parth was able to achieve this goal by completing just a one-year Automobile Technician course from CEDP Skill Institute.

Adler Rider has already become a topic of discussion between all students and faculties at CEDP; encouraging more to come up with such works. The entire Adler Rider project cost Parth Kotak close to Rs 2 lakh. Parth shared that he always wanted to be part of the automotive industry, and it was the course and on-job training provided by CEDP that helped him create his own motorcycle. He could also spend eight months with a top automotive company, with the opportunity for live training and hands-on experience.

Making a motorcycle from just scrap materials (that too, 10 feet long) had its own challenges. Initially, a good work location was not available. However, it was Parth's friend who came to the rescue by providing enough space and machinery at his father's workshop.

Parth and his friend worked for almost 18 months (mostly during late hours) to finally finish the Adler Rider. Though it tested his engineering skills to a different level, Parth was quite happy with what he managed to achieve at the end.

The Adler Rider showcases the creative side of engineering and the infinite possibilities it offers. Even though the Adler Rider is a work of 'form over function', Parth Kotak aims to create working examples of the same kind, with the goal to represent India on a global level.


Why Bogibeel Bridge - world's longest steel bridge - is an engineering marvel

India's longest rail-cum-road Bogibeel bridge
India's longest rail-cum-road Bogibeel bridge, inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday, is not only the country's first fully-welded steel bridge but the world's longest incrementally launched steel bridge, infrastructure major HCC (Hindustan Construction Company) said.
The prime minister inaugurated the the 4.94-km-long double-decker strategic bridge, built by HCC, over the Brahmaputra river at Bogibeel near Dibrugarh in Assam, which is expected to reduce the distance between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh by around 700 kilometres, and the travel time from 24 hours to merely five hours.
With the width ranging from 1.2 km to 18 km, the Brahmaputra has been bridged only four times in the past, and HCC holds the distinction of building two of these bridges and has now constructed the fifth, the company said in a statement.
"Built on the Brahmaputra river in Dibrugarh district of Assam, it is the first fully welded steel bridge and the longest rail-cum-road bridge in India. HCC constructed the entire 4.9 km-long superstructure," it said.
Military implications
Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) Chief Public Relations Officer Pranav Jyoti Sharma said almost 75 per cent of the 4,000-km long border that India shares with China is in Arunachal Pradesh, and the bridge will help in logistical support for the Indian Army manning the border.
Bridge will enable the military to speedily dispatch forces to neighbouring Arunachal, which borders China. This has cut the rail journey between Dibrugarh and Arunachal by 750 km.
The bridge can bear the weight of India’s heaviest battle tanks and also allow fighter jets to land.
 1. Connectivity for five million
Bogibeel bridge will provide connectivity to nearly five million people residing in Upper Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
HCC said the project boasts of multiple benefits such as strategic and speedier access for defence forces to the Indo-China border, seamless access for medical facilities to remote north-eastern states, and most importantly reducing by nearly 10 hours the transportation distance between NH-37 and NH-52, saving transportation cost, time and fuel.
2. Bridging the Brahmaputra
"HCC has time and again undertaken complex infrastructure projects that are benchmarks in India's infrastructure journey. Bogibeel Bridge is an engineering masterpiece, which has many technical firsts to its name. It is India's first fully welded Warren truss girder type steel bridge.
"Not only has an incremental launching technique for superstructure erection been used for the first time in India, it is also the world's longest incrementally launched steel bridge. HCC is proud to create such marvels for the nation," HCC Director & Group CEO Arjun Dhawan said.
The company said its team through sheer determination and grit completed this project, as bridging the mighty Brahmaputra has always been a daunting task.
3. Constructed to reduce corrosion
The company said the superstructure of the Bogibeel bridge has been constructed using special copper-bearing steel plates in order to reduce corrosion.
Furthermore, due to excessive humidity in the area, a complex Corrosion Protection System specific to different components of the bridge has been implemented, it added.

4. Designed to deal with earthquakes
To offer stability to the heavy spans (1700 MT), seismic restrainers are provided. The bridge is designed to withstand earthquakes with magnitudes in excess of 7, the company said.
5. Serviceable period of 120 years
It has a serviceable period of around 120 years.  "The 4.9 km-long Bogibeel Bridge on the Bramhaputra river is India's only fully welded bridge for which european codes and welding standards were adhered to for the first time in the country, said Chief Engineer Mohinder Singh.
Singh said a fully welded bridge has a low maintenance cost. The bridge, constructed at an estimated cost of Rs 5,900 crore, has a "serviceable period of around 120 years", he said.
6. An eye on China
Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) Chief Public Relations Officer Pranav Jyoti Sharma said almost 75 per cent of the 4,000-km long border that India shares with China is in Arunachal Pradesh, and the bridge will help in logistical support for the Indian Army manning the border.
Bridge will enable the military to speedily dispatch forces to neighbouring Arunachal, which borders China. This has cut the rail journey between Dibrugarh and Arunachal by 750 km.
The bridge can bear the weight of India’s heaviest battle tanks and also allow fighter jets to land.

9 Ways Tech Made the World a Better Place

From stopping child trafficking to mapping slums, governments and companies found new ways to use technology in 2018 to help people globally. Here are 9 new uses of technology in the past year

A one-month-old baby in Vanuatu became the first person in the world to be immunised with a vaccine delivered by a commercial drone. UNICEF called the delivery to the Pacific island nation as a “big leap for global health”

An app which helps farmers identify pests and diseases won the first Africawide hackathon aimed at finding solutions to hunger. The AgriPredict app forecasts the probability of pest invasions, including the voracious fall armyworm, which eats crops and has wreaked havoc in sub-Saharan Africa and India
Drones spraying millions of sterile mosquitoes are helping combat Zika outbreak in Brazil. Once freed, the sterilised, laboratory-bred male Aedes aegypti mosquitoes — which spread Zika, dengue and yellow fever by biting humans — mate with females, but do not produce viable eggs

India is using drones and satellites to map informal settlements in a bid to speed up the delivery of essential services and land rights for slum dwellers

Apps like Safecity are enabling women to flag harassment prone areas in India to the police and transport department so they can increase patrols and review lighting

Thailand turned to satellites to combat forced labour in its multi-billion dollar fishing industry after the European Union threatened to ban fish exports

Will Google care more for your privacy?

ET will periodically analyse debatable or dubious claims that catch public attention and try to bring clarity and order in what often becomes fact-free free-for-all.
Claim: Google’s new rules effective January 9 will improve users’ privacy. 
Who makes it: Google, obviously 

Is it a fact? 
First, the proof will be in how new rules work. Second, these rules make Google even more powerful. So, not a fact now, and may not be fully true even later. ET explains. 

What is Google’s new privacy policy? 
* Provides granular details on what permissions are granted by users for using a   
     specific app. 
* Curbs permission for apps to access users’ call logs and SMSes.
*  Limits access of third-party apps to consumers’ Gmail data. 
* Only apps selected as default by users get access to call logs and SMSes. 

What Does This Mean?
For users: 
*Companies won’t be able to target ads based on email data.
*Create more clarity on what data an app is seeking.
*You can use Google’s security checkup tool to check what third-party apps have access to your Gmail account. 
For app developers: 
*Gmail add-ons will have to ask for permission to access your inbox, at regular intervals.
*Startups targeting the next 100+million Internet users where data around consumer behaviour & smartphone usage pattern is critical will find business tougher.
*If a review by an app is not submitted within a stipulated time period, Google will start rolling back what the app can access.

So, will privacy really increase? 
*Time will tell whether snooping without your knowledge or permission stops.
*But note that new rules make Google even more powerful—only Google has users’ data, and that means our Internet privacy is almost entirely dependent on one company. 
*Therefore, the question, if Google wants to bar third-party access to data, why not have external auditors implement the plan. 

*While the privacy question remains open, many app developers will grumble.

ISRO’s ‘angry bird’ takes to the skies

Launched at 4.10 p.m., the satellite is primarily for the Air Force’s communication purposes
An anxious ISRO Chairman K. Sivan on Wednesday watched the flight path of the GSLV-F11 intently as it soared into the evening sky carrying communication satellite GSAT-7A, meant to enhance the communication infrastructure of the Indian Air Force.
Three key factors had weighed on the minds of the launch team at ISRO — the weight of the satellite, changes made to the cryogenic stage and the second stage of the vehicle to increase payload capacity, and the possibility of a cyclone looming on the coast that finally changed track gave anxious moments to the team.
Heaviest satellite
In its Mk-II version, the GSLV with the indigenous cryogenic stage carried on board its heaviest satellite that weighed 2,250 kg, from the second launch pad of the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, SHAR, here at 4.10 p.m.
“[In] the vehicle, the second stage propellant loading has been increased from 37.5 tonnes to 40 tonnes, and cryogenic stage propellant loading has been increased from 12 tonnes to 15 tonnes along with enhanced thrust value for the cryogenic stage,” Mr. Sivan said after the satellite was placed in a ‘super synchronous transfer orbit’, a little over 19 minutes after launch to enhance its life, pegged at eight years.
Though the Mission Control team remained tight-lipped about the purported use of the satellite, sources in ISRO and the Indian Air Force said the satellite would enhance the communication capabilities of IAF. “This is primarily for the Indian Air Force’s communication purposes, such as ground to air communication,” one of the sources told The Hindu . The satellite, being dubbed as ‘angry bird’ by some, is likely to enhance the range of communication and also aid in aircraft to aircraft communication.
“There is always further improvements in GSLV… in the coming GSLV F10s and F12 missions we are going to make bigger payload compartment to accommodate still bigger spacecraft and that is another important challenge in front of us and we are getting ready with that change as well to make sure that GSLV continues to remain very successful and rugged vehicle like PSLV,” said S. Somanath, Director, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre.
With ISRO ending the year on a high, having completed 17 missions, Mr. Sivan said he had a ‘great gift’ for his staff. “This year, we completed 17 missions. It is a very good number. The gift is... next year, we are going to have around 32 missions.”
Force multiplier
“It will be a major booster and force multiplier for the Indian Air Force. When we talk of a network-centric warfare, such type of systems will help achieve full network centricity. From that perspective, it’s a major value addition to the IAF,” said Ajay Lele, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses (IDSA).

India should be pioneers of new technology: former BARC director

Youth will give country momentum, says R. Chidambaram
The man behind the Pokhran-II nuclear test and former director of Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC), Rajagopala Chidambaram, on Friday said that India should not hesitate in being the pioneer of new technologies, and that the youth will give the country the momentum that it needs.
He was addressing the youth on ‘Technologies for the Future’ at the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay’s (IIT-B) annual technology event ‘Techfest.’
“The world is changing rapidly. Technology is changing from nuclear to rural. A research development ecosystem is the need of the hour,” Dr. Chidambaram said.
The scientist stressed the need for the country’s technological development to be prioritised. “We need to make technological advancements specifically for our country. We also need to have foresight apart from forecast. Foresight requires forecast and assessment. We need to become a knowledge economy,” he said.
Rural reach
While praising Indian scientists for their various achievements, Dr. Chidambaram raised the issue of rural reach. “We have abundant knowledge, the problem is it is not reaching rural areas. While a rural technology action group has been started, we need more efforts on that front. We need e-connectivity for inclusivity and knowledge sharing,” he said.
According to Dr. Chidambaram, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are fast emerging buzzwords in the present world. “AI and machine learning are omnipresent. We now use them in flood forecasting in India. AI could be our future, sure, but I don’t think it will overtake human intelligence,” he said.
“India is using AI adequately. Things are beginning to happen, like IIT-Hyderabad runs an M.Tech and B.Tech course in AI, but these people must also find suitable applications where it can be used,” the physicist said.
Dr. Chidambaram further said, “India should not hesitate to be the pioneer of new technologies. The path to a knowledge-driven economy is paved by new advanced technologies. Proven technologies, unless subjected to continuous evolutionary improvements, are often synonymous to obsolete technologies. I am sure young people will give momentum to the technology development that India wants. We will have failures, but should not have multiple failures.”
