POMPANO BEACH, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: CYPW), developer of the all-fuel, clean-tech Cyclone Engine, announced today that it has signed an agreement with The Ohio State University's prestigious Center for Automotive Research (OSU CAR) to perform design analysis and testing services for the company.
Cyclone has teamed with OSU CAR to assist in the commercialization of its external combustion engine technology, specifically the company's Waste Heat Engine (WHE) model. OSU CAR will initially perform finite element and dynamic stress analysis of the engine, followed by independent long term durability testing. Cyclone will utilize Phoenix Power's waste motor oil combustion chamber / heat exchanger (CCHX) to supply steam to the system during these tests, which will also allow the team to document exhaust emissions from the integrated system.
Giorgio Rizzoni, director of OSU CAR and a Ford Motor Company Chair, stated: "We're pleased to be working with Cyclone on this very promising new technology. We see the great potential for utilizing Cyclone engines in the waste-to-energy sector, and are excited to be part of their development. I believe that our team of talented engineers and students will be able to add considerable value to this program."
OSU CAR is a Columbus-based interdisciplinary research center within The Ohio State University's College of Engineering, which is located only 30 miles from the site of Cyclone's proposed joint venture with Precision CNC to manufacture Cyclone engines. Among other expertise, OSU CAR focuses on advanced engine development; alternative fuels for reduced fuel consumption and emissions; electric and hybrid drivetrains; and advanced battery technology. CAR performs research and analysis for some of the largest automotive OEMs and government agencies in the world. Student teams housed at OSU CAR have also developed vehicles that have set land speed records for battery and fuel cell powered electric vehicles at the Bonneville Salt Flats, in three different categories. Each of these records has surpassed 300 mph.
Jim Landon, Cyclone's CEO, stated: "We're thrilled to be working with Dr. Rizzoni and his team at Ohio State Center for Automotive Research. There is much we believe they can add to the commercialization and market placement of our engine technology, including a fresh set of engineering eyes and respected third-party validation. Their close proximity to our manufacturing partner, as well as the tremendous value their expertise provides us, makes this a major step forward for Cyclone and our shareholders."

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
