1 Sustainable Product Design: A Review, Neelam Chaudhary, Tanvir Singh, Amit Kumar
With the increasing demand of product it become essential to consider sustainability aspects of product design The integration of sustainability into all aspects of product design cycle provides an opportunity to reduce a product’s negative impact on society, environment and economy. There are three issues on which sustainability works that is society, environment and economy. We must integrate the idea of sustainable design into the process of product design in order to achieve sustainable development of environment, society and economy. The main objective of sustainable product design is to reduce or minimise the use of conventional or non-renewable resources.Hence, this paper gives an overview of the concept of Sustainable Product Design.
2 A Comprehensive Study of Antenna Terminology Using HFSS, Vasishath Kaushal, Tanvir Singh, Vinay Kumar, Amit Kumar, Dr. Dilip Kumar
Antenna is very important component of communication systems. By definition, an antenna is a device used to transform an RF signal, traveling on a conductor, into an electromagnetic wave in free space. Antennas demonstrate a property known as reciprocity, which means that an antenna will maintain the same characteristics regardless if it is transmitting or receiving. Antennas need to be optimized for specific applications like mobile phone, AM/FM, TV etc. And for that purpose the various properties like Size, Gain, Directivity, etc. are modified to get the best results. So, in this paper, we had presented a comprehensive study of antenna terminology by taking an example in HFSS (High Frequency Structured Simulator).
3 E-Waste Management: An Approach Towards Environmental Sustainability, Amandeep Singh, Tanvir Singh, Amit Kumar
E-Waste is electronic waste that is generated from electronic equipment which is near or at the end of its useful life. It is fruitless gift given by the world with the help of Technology Advancement. It includes mobiles, desktops, PCBs, ICs etc. The concept of 3 R’s i.e. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle; should be implemented to reduce E-Waste. Hence, in this paper, we have discussed the problem of E-Waste and its management in today’s smart world.
4 A Comparative Study of Radiation Levels Emitted by Samsung and Nokia Cell Phones, Tanvir Singh, Prince Verma, Amit Kumar, Yun-fei Liu
In the world market, numbers of mobile phones are available equipped with smart applications. While purchasing any cell phone, we must be aware of its safety standards by considering SAR Value which refers to Specific Absorption Rate. In this paper, we have compared the level of radiations emitted by two manufacturing companies’ viz. Samsung and Nokia using an Electro Smog Meter and discussed the significance of SAR.
5 A Survey on EM Pollution Caused by Indian Youth in the Age Group of 17 to 22 Years, Prince Verma, Tanvir Singh, Amit Kumar
Cell phone use is increasing day by day. People are using them without knowing their health hazards. Cell phones radiate whole day when it is “ON”. One should be aware about the risks of mobile phones. In this paper, we have presented a survey report pertaining Electromagnetic (EM) Pollution caused by Indian Youth in the age group of 17 to 22 Years.
6 Wireless Technologies and their Radiation Hazards: A Practical Observation, Amit Kumar, Vasishath Kaushal, Tanvir Singh, Dr. Sawtantar Singh Khurmi
have advanced manifold. Where people earlier used to seek telephone lines to get a dial up internet connection with a speed of 56 kbps, now they can access broadband speeds on the move without any wires. So, this explains the extent to which the technology has advanced in a very short period. But, as we know that the electromagnetic waves used by the wireless systems are absorbed by the human body, so the advancement in various technologies have created health issues which will be discussed in this paper.
7 Smart Phones Vs Tablets: A Review, Devinder Singh, Tanvir Singh, Amit Kumar
Smart phones and tablets are two different devices having little bit difference in their configuration, design, etc. Both of these two devices also have some same features but due to their MRP, size and hardware configuration make difference in them. There are many models of different companies available in market but our discussion is on either to choose smart phone or tablets. There is no doubt that smart phones are small in its area as well as in screen resolution. There are many merits and demerits of smart phones over tablets and vice versa. This paper will provide merits and demerits of smart phone and as well as of tablets, difference between them and which one is more efficient.
8 Sustainable Energy Efficiency in ICT: Role of PV Cells, Amit Kumar, Tanvir Singh, Satnam Singh, Dr. Sawtantar Singh
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a rapidly evolving economic sector with many directions of development and the technology analysts estimate that the manufacture, use and disposal of ICT equipment contribute around 2% of global emissions of carbon dioxide. The growth rate of ICT energy consumption caused by increasing network penetration and explosion of data traffic is significant (about 7% per year), resulting in the situation that in spite of increasing energy efficiency of the network, the ICT-related share of worldwide energy consumption may increase dramatically in the longer term if no measures are taken. Renewable energy sources, such as wind power, solar energy, photovoltaic (PVs), geothermal heat, biomass, marine and hydro power; can help reduce our dependence on energy from fossil fuels. In this paper, we have reviewed the PV cells and their vital role to achieve the sustainable energy efficiency in ICT.
