It was on March-21st where the students of KCG witnessed a lots of Creative and new projects in NATIONAL IET PROJECT EXPO done by the final year ECE & EEE students Of KCG. Totally There were 9 teams from ECE & EEE department Where each and every one’s project was something new and original. I was really amazed and thrilled when few teams showed demonstrations of their project and the moment they showed the demonstrations I just thought If these projects gets implemented in the society ,How will it be? And in one word I can just frame it as “AWESOME”. It would be really good and interesting if these projects gets implemented in public society. we had two great resourceful person to judge these projects namely Mr.Dorai Thodla – Founder Of I-Morph and Dr.Sridharan-Senior Principal Scientist and Deputy Director(CEERI),
DRIVER SAFETY SYSTEM USING STABILITY CONTROL, ALCOHOL SENSOR AND CELL PHONE JAMMER
This was the very first project that started Of the IET PROJECT EXPO .From the name of the project ,we can easily infer that its main principle is to prevent the usage of cell-phones while driving and also detects if the driver has consumed alcohol. Here they have used two sensors namely Stability and Alcohol Sensor where stability sensor allows the vehicle to gradually stop if the driver is feeling so drowsy and alcohol sensor will automatically detect whether the driver has consumed alcohol or not. This kind of project will be really helpful If it comes into play where accidents can be reduced to a greater extent.
SMART VOTING MACHINE SECURITY ROOM USING WPAN AND GSM TECHNOLOGIES
This is a kind of project which will really help as a security for voting machines once the voting process is completed. Two main technologies have been used namely WPAN-Wireless Personal Area Network which is almost a kind of wireless technology and the other one is GSM-Global System For Mobile Communication. Initially all the voting machines will be kept in separately designed room where a camera will be fixed and If there is any human Interruption, The camera will automatically detect and send a message to the person concerned for that room using the GSM technology. This will be an effective technique If it’s gets implemented in real time.
NAVIGATION AID FOR VISUALLY CHALLENGED USING IR SENSORS,RF TRANSCEIVER AND GPS
We need to have a look at this Project which will genuinely assist the Blind people .There will be 3 IR Sensors fixed on the Goggles(Left, Right, center).If there is any obstacles on the center ,The IR sensor will automatically detect and will guide you through head phones to either move left or right. Global Positioning System(GPS) is a device that helps in navigation. It receives the coordinates from satellite and tells us the location. This feature has been added in the project for the blind to know the area he is in, in just a touch of a button and finally RF transceiver is generally used for Vehicle detection. The main vantage is that it will really support the blind people as they don’t need to rely on others if this kind of Project comes into effect.
AUTOMATED MOBILE PHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENT SYSTEM
In hospitals we generally come across lots of instruments for measuring blood pressure, heart rate and so on. But these people have thought something really new and I was very well convinced when they showed the demonstration of their project where they have designed a system which is used to measure Blood Pressure, Heart rate and body temperature excites like all integrated in one system. For Measuring the blood pressure ,They have used Pressure sensor which is used to calculate the pressure and Audio sensor -to measure systolic and diastolic level. Body temperature is calculated by just holding the amplifier that is affixed in the system.Heart rate is measured using IR sensor . Also it alerts the doctor or hospital in case of abnormality and emergency using GSM. This Kind of system will be really cheaper and one can add further more measuring instruments and is highly portable If it is practiced regularly.
DRIVER HYPO VIGILANCE DETECTION BASED ON EYE LID BEHAVIOR
This is also an another kind of project which is going to be helpful for driver security. The main principle is to detect the driver fatigue and will automatically sense an early alert by the use of camera. For every Eye lid movements there will be a separate values assigned .If the eyelid movement values is inferior constantly ,it will be detected by the camera and will give an alert. Accidents can be really avoided by using this kind of detection as it has become very severe especially in INDIA.
WIRELESS ROBOT USING VOICE COMMAND
Here comes the field of Robotics which can make a big change in the future in all aspects. This project was something which was really Originative. The main use of this robot is that it will really benefit bedridden patients. Whatever work that needs to be done by a robot is said through a voice recognition which can hold up to 20-25 words. Once the receiver receives the message sent by transmitter, the robot will start performing the desired actions. This type of robot will be a great benefactor to the people who are bedridden, Handicapped etc and other main thing is that they are very easy to access anywhere. This kind of project will make our eyes wide open to know more about Robots.
ROBOCRAFT ASSISTANCE AND GROCERY STORE FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED
This is an another kind of project Which will be a great benefit to the blind people especially when they make purchase in a Grocery Store .Basically there will be a Radio Frequency Id which helps to deploy and read the item and it’s tell to the blind person through the voice output. There is a mechanical arm which helps in picking the objects. wireless Billing mechanism is used in this case where Once the product is selected, it will send it to the RF transmitter which in turn is sent to the receiver. This entire mechanism will be key factor to the Blind people because despite being blind, they can make purchases if this project gets carried out in the real time world.
MICRO CONTROLLERS BASED AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE
One can drive a vehicle without a driver if this technique is used. In simple we can put it as “VEHICLE WITHOUT A DRIVER”. The coding part is actually done in AVR-Advanced virtual RISC architecture where they have programmed in such a way that it can move in forward, backward direction etc .Use of IR sensor can detect an obstacle. In real time it can be executed in Industrial applications like Airport in particular Where they follow the same path.
KINETIC PREDOMINATON OF POWER WHEEL CHAIR
A power wheel chair is designed especially for Quadriplegic patients(one affected with paralysis of both arm and legs). A micro electrical mechanical system is used where a Vibration sensor is fixed in the head which senses the patient movement and allows the chair to move.IR sensor method is accomplished even here for collision detection. if there is any obstacle in front, it will instinctively redirect the chair to move in another direction. So Quadriplegic patients never want to hang on others as they are directed by head movements if this working is followed.
The entire projects that were demonstrated in the IET PROJECT EXPO by the final year ECE & EEE students were to the top notch and stupendous. Each and everyone’s project was really innovative and challenging. This projects can play a significant role if this comes into existence.
Mr.Dorai Thodla after having a look at all the projects has quoted that “The final year projects were good”. He even added that some of the projects have the potential to be continued and improved and turned into products.
Finally as a Blogger, I am very elated to be a part of this IET PROJECT EXPO. This has given me a chance to learn and know a lot especially in the field of Robotics and Micro-controllers despite being a computer science student. This has even made me to think to do a kind of innovative project in robotics.
I would like to express my gratitude to Mr.Dorai Thodla (Founder Of I-Morph) , Mrs.Sumathi Poobal(Vice Principal), Dr.T.Ravi(CSE-HOD), Mr.S.Cloudin(Associate Professor), Mr.Sreekantha Kumar(Associate Professor) for the support and motivation and a big thanks to final year ECE & EEE students who spent time in giving explanations about their project even to the bloggers like us (rohit and myself).
