About Project :

Human cell is having cancer as a major disease. The human body is a group of cells united together to form organs and tissues such as bones and muscles, liver and the lungs. In each cell order, Genes inside each cell work, reproduce, grow, and die. Generally, human cells follow these orders, and persons remain healthy. Sometimes, these instructions are mixed together and causing the cells to form lumps or tumors.

The simulation involves thresholding of MRI grayscale image. The proposed threshloding and other efficient algorithms are implemented with MATLAB which will remove noise efficiently. An improved edge detection algorithm for brain tumor segmentation is presented. It is based on Sobel edge detection. It combines the Sobel method with image dependent thresholding method, and finds tumor region.

About Project :

Bionics’ implies the combination of the fields of Biology and Electronics. Bionic technology is revolutionary in nature connecting the realms of man and machine together as a single entity. It is a known a fact that human body is very complicated and one of its kinds. It can be repaired to a certain extent but it cannot be remade. Bionic technology gives hope to people who have lost their natural body parts to disease, war, accidents and other calamities by allowing them touch, move, walk, see and hear again.

The main objective of the project is to analyze and explain the working of a bionic arm and to create a low cost 3D prosthetic arm which can enable users of the prosthesis to open and close the hand and even control its 3DOF fingers.

About Project :

Generally beaches are cleaned by corporation workers and volunteers, later piles of waste are hauled away by garbage trucks. Mostly, sweepers are employed to clean the beaches. But this takes lot of time and efficient cleaning cannot be done.

The project is titled as Beach cleaner bot from the title it is clear that it is an automatic machine to clean beach. This is a relatively compact intelligent cleaning bot which automatically detects and picks up the plastic debris and other waste from the sand of the beaches. If the garbage inside the bot is filled up to the maximum level, it automatically dumps into the trash storage area. It is controlled using an app from smart phone .Since this bot is integrated with IOT, where a swarm of such machines can be coordinated to clean a much larger area.

About Project :

Agriculture plays a vital role in India’s economy. Over 58 per cent of the rural households depend on agriculture as their principal means of livelihood. In this project we are trying to design a robot which can perform various agricultural processes simultaneously that require different machinaries for different operations i.e ploughing, automatic seeding, levelling

The machine “Agro Robot” is used for agriculture needs. The main purposes of designing Robot that reduces the hard human effort in plowing that decreases human effort and increases the productivity. The specialty in the design of Robot to solves the Problem of Plowing, at the same time it just drops the seed at the desired place of the plowed line arrangement that makes the better field cropping.

About Project :

Plastic is one of the key ingredient groups in the petrochemical industry, which uses petroleum-based products and natural gas as raw material, obtained by chemical conversion of these two. In addition to being lightweight; noncorrosive, soft, flexible, non-easily damageable its high heat and electrical insulation features make plastics an indispensable packaging material. The quantity of plastics consumed annually all over the world has been growing phenomenally.

The main objective of Plastic Sand is to solve the problem related to the plastic waste and to have a productive use of plastic as a construction material. In large scale production, Plastic Sand is economical and also is environmental friendly, provide thermal and sound insulation.

About Project :

A mechanically robust robot with minimal software complexity, easy reprogram ability and inexpensive actuation could be easily adopted in Small and Medium Scale Industries. Easy reprogram ability would significantly reduce the robot down time and make the economics of adoption more favorable. Such a robot would truly be an innovation that wields the potential to enhance the current less effective methods and increase the productivity of the Small and Medium Scale Industries which are currently unable to reap the benefits of automation. Keeping this in mind, we proposed “THAWR”.

About Project :

This project is mainly concerned below elbow amputee. The Human hand has intricate and versatile behavior in nature. A huge amount of research worldwide is being performed in order to develop an imitativeness of human adroitness in electro-mechanical machine guided by a computer program or electronic circuitry.

Increasing number of degree of freedom in bionic hand will eventually lead to appear it as an expensive one. Current scenario about Bionic hand is quite expensive and heavier to use. The cost of the prosthetic hand depends upon their features even though the starting price of the prosthetic hand is above 50K Rupees.

The main motive of this project to make the Bionic Hand has more commercial one than present scenario. The overall cost of the project will fall under 7K Rupees.

About Project :

The rising population of India poses serious threats with regard to the availability of living space, utilization of natural resources and disposal of waste generated. Every city is grappling with the menace of ever increasing waste. One possible solution for this problem could be segregating the waste at the source. The main objective of the project is to prepare conceptual design for segregating dry and wet waste, which can separate dry, wet and metal waste from the mixture to reduce health hazards due to contamination. Based on the objectives we had designed the separator which would operate utilizing the blower power to segregate wet and dry waste.

About Project :

In the present world, automotive industry is no longer purely mechanical, but a combination of mechanics and electronics. Automotive industry is employing electronics for better and easy control over the various systems.

Our unique solution plans to tackle the ever growing problem of traffic congestion and traffic jams using a dynamic algorithm. The system developed for the same will also be used for combating other issues as mentioned in the objectives.

The current traffic control systems have a relatively inefficient methodology of controlling traffic. The traffic lights are pre-set and change in an orderly fashion based on a timer. If it is so required to have a feedback, a traffic-police acts as a controller and manually changes the lights based on the traffic density on each lane. However by using the concept of infrastructure to vehicle communication and vehicle to vehicle communication, the process can be automated. Here the vehicles themselves act as the input, directly affecting the traffic control systems output, thus making the traffic light operation dynamic. Establishing this network of inter and intra vehicle communication and using it to control traffic lights dynamically is described in our solution and hence the name - dynamic traffic management system.

About Project :

This project aims at the security of the women. In many offices like BPO’s, female employees are working till late night. The companies are also providing cab facility to the employees. But the security for them is not enough. For that, we propose a cab monitoring system that ensures the safety of the female employees. This project has two units: Cab unit and company unit. The location of the Cab can be monitored using a GPS module attached to the Cab. In our proposed car unit we have a RFID card reader, GPS module, GSM module and a relay module. When the female employee enters the car, she has swipe her RFID card in the car unit. At that time, a message will be sent to the company comprising the location, employee ID, and Cab number. If the employee finds herself in trouble, she can press a button in the car unit. At that time microcontroller detects the signal and will sent a message to both company and police control room. The message will have location, employee ID, and Cab number. At the same time, microcontroller will also send a signal to the relay unit which will turn off the car ignition & stop the car. The company unit consists of a GSM modem for receiving the messages and one PC for monitoring the message.
