A crane is a lifting machine equipped with a winder, wire ropes or chains and
sheaves that can be used both to lift and lower materials and to move them
horizontally. It uses one or more simple machines to create mechanical advantage
and thus move loads beyond the normal capability of a human. Cranes are
commonly employed in the transport industry for the loading and unloading of
freight; in the construction industry for the movement of materials; and in the
manufacturing industry for the assembling of heavy equipment. The generally-
accepted definition of a crane is a machine for lifting and moving heavy objects by
means of ropes or cables suspended from a movable arm. As such, a lifting
machine that does not use cables, or else provides only vertical and not horizontal
movement, cannot strictly be called a 'crane'.


The main objective of this project to build a unique kind of robotic algorithm to
achieve a new kind of approachability in the field of robotics. The solar crane with
solar panel is one of those types of different view for automation in machines.
These car are designed to go at different places without man. The main supply is
given by solar panel. By this supply we are operating robotic car in various

A robot is a virtual or mechanical artificial agent. In practice, it is usually an
electro-mechanical machine which is guided by computer or electronic
programming, and is thus able to do tasks on its own. Another common
characteristic is that by its appearance or movements, a robot often conveys a sense
that it has intent or agency of its own.

The basic purpose of this robot is to provide automation for the utility machines
that are operated in manual mode for removing different obstructions form fixed
terrain in a remote location.

When a load is applied. and in the fact that cap channels are added to longer spans for lateral stability.Applied Forces to the Supporting Structure: The applied forces diagram details the relative position and direction of the forces that a Wall Bracket jib crane applies to the structure that supports it when a load is picked up. The tie rod is in tension. These Thrust & Pull forces are significantly higher than the capacity of the crane! Be sure to have a qualified structural engineer verify the adequacy of the supporting structure. is utilized • Offers ease of leveling . Tie Rod: • A single tie rod (ASTM A36). Design Advantages: The key to Gorbel’s superior Wall Bracket jib crane lies in the design and manufacture of the bracket system. right-hand threaded at each end. the top wall bracket applies an overall downward and outward force (pull) on its support. The bottom wall bracket applies a downward and inward force (thrust) on its support.

This has increased the pressure on testers. who are often perceived as bottlenecks to the delivery of software products. The Promise of Test Automation Test automation implementations are expected to achieve some or all of the following objectives.NEED FOR AUTOMATION Over the past several years. tools that help programmers quickly create applications with graphical user interfaces have dramatically improved programmer productivity. reduce the mundane repetitive execution of tests. They need to dramatically improve their own productivity. . Test automation is one way to do this. Testers are being asked to test more and more code in less and less time.  Speed up testing to accelerate releases  Allow testing to happen more frequently  Reduce costs of testing by reducing manual labour  Improve test coverage  Ensure consistency  Improve the reliability of testing  Allow testing to be done by staff with less skill  Define the testing process and reduce dependence on the few who know it  Make testing more interesting.

 The Test Automation Engineers automate the tests previously executed for each release. occurs in the short term. already a rare commodity.  Building a regression test suite requires significantly more time to develop than purported by the tool vendors. This results in a large number of (short) segmented automated tests.  ROI on the tools and labour seldom.  Maintenance of the regression suite becomes unmanageable with the number of changes implemented in each release.  Metrics are difficult to determine as the test automation scripts do not necessarily report into the Test Management tool effectively. the most common being.  Effective test automation requires developer skills.  Test Automation Engineers are seldom included as an integral part of the development/test team. automation implementations fail due for a number of reasons. if ever.  A reasonable maturity and competence in manual testing is lacking. more often than not.  The application must be available and stable before script development/ maintenance can take place. .The Reality Unfortunately.  A number of automated testing “frameworks” exist but require an army of consultants to maintain. adding to the regression test pack.

Suppose synchronous motor is running if the STOP key is pressing motor will stop at the same place while FOR or REV key pressing. .

The efficiency of a module determines the area of a module given the same rated output – an 8% efficient 230 watt module will have twice the area of a 16% efficient 230 watt module. Gear =2 5. Solar panels can be used as a component of a larger photovoltaic system to generate and supply electricity in commercial and residential applications. A PV module is a packaged. and typically ranges from 100 to 320 watts. Each module is rated by its DC output power under standard test conditions (STC). or to a set of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules electrically connected and mounted on a supporting structure.

all the bearings are permanently lubricated and therefore require no maintenance. The output shaft rotates in a sintered bushing. These spindles rotate between bronze plates which ensures silent running. 2. It’s of vital importance for the industry today. The motor is screwed to the gear box from inside. The whole assembly is covered with a plastic ring. . and is equally important for engineers to look into the working principle of DC motor in details that has been discussed in this article. A DC motor in simple words is a device that converts direct current (electrical energy) into mechanical energy. DC MOTOR Nr-dc-eco is high quality low cost dc geared motor. The gears are fixed on hardened steel spindles polished to a mirror finish. It contains brass gears and steel pinions to ensure longer life and better wear and tear properties. In order to understand the operating principle of dc motor we need to first look into its constructional feature.

Now to go into the details of the operating principle of DC motor it’s important that we have a clear understanding of Fleming’s left hand rule to determine the direction of force acting on the armature conductors of dc motor . The very basic construction of a dc motor contains a current carrying armature which is connected to the supply end through commutator segments and brushes and placed within the north south poles of a permanent or an electro-magnet as shown in the diagram below.

then the conductor experiences a force in the direction (represented by the thumb) mutually perpendicular to both the direction of field and the current in the conductor. . Fleming’s left hand rule says that if we extend the index finger. middle finger and thumb of our left hand in such a way that the current carrying conductor is placed in a magnetic field (represented by the index finger) is perpendicular to the direction of current (represented by the middle finger).
