Intelligent Cap (i-CAP)

autorzy: Sadev Kalubowila

i-CAP or Intelligent Cap is an easy, inexpensive solution to secure bolts from loosening or breaking unknowingly. Due to its creative design, it can be easily applied to both new and elderly-designed bolts. When bolts tend to loosening or breaking, bolt or nut with i-CAP will give an indication to the user. Thereby unnecessary accidents and/ or damages to the human and property are avoided. Maintaining bolts and nuts firmly and tightly fit in any assembled instrument is very important in the proper operation of the machinery/equipment and mitigating unexpected situations or accidents. The introduced Intelligent Cap (i-CAP) has been invented to detect loosed/untightened or broken bolt/s or nuts/s at its very first stage. I-CAP is a smart device having the ability to self-changing its color in parallel to the loosening amount of the bolt and nuts. I-CAP Hub is a supportive pluggable device, facilitates remote monitoring and on-site monitoring features with the application of the Internet of Things(IoT) and Augmented Reality(AR). i-CAP or Intelligent Cap is an easy, inexpensive solution to secure bolts and nuts from loosening and breaking unknowingly. Due to its creative design, it can be easily applied(as a cap or hat ) with new and elderly-designed bolts and nuts. As a passive device, i-CAP does not require any external power source to operate. When bolts or nuts tend to lose or break, bolt or nut with i-CAP will give an indication to the user. Indication occurs in two ways; (1) iCAP can change its color according to the loosen amount so that anyone can easily notice the status of the bolt/nut with our naked eye. (2) Simultaneously, it generates a signal that can be used for further monitoring purposes with the help of i-CAP Hub. i-CAP Hub offers customizable solutions in the range of AR and IoT. It is a constant requirement to monitor the failed bolt, inform the user on time to locate the place simultaneously in case of an emergency. i-CAP is not merely a cap, it comes with modern technology-based solutions such as IoT (Internet of Things) and AR (Augmented Reality). Therefore, it has a significant amount of industrial applications in the modern world that secure human and property safety.
