The Student Development Programme 4, on ‘FOUNDATION SKILL IN INTEGRATED PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT (FSIPD)’ began at 8.30 am, on 14th March 2019, at Smt. Rajalakshmi Seminar Hall, MVJCE. The SDP4 on FSIPD was conducted from 14th March 2019 to 16th March 2019 and on 30th March 2019, every day, in the campus. The progamme commenced on an auspicious note, with a video clip of the FSIPD Journey, right from 2016.

The occasion was graced by FSIPD student Trainers Mr. Ravi Bagdi (CSE) and Ms. Kanika (CSE). They shared their experience in SDP 1 and SDP 2.

Addressing the gathering, Prof. I. Manimozhi, (Associate Professor – Department of Computer Science Engineering) extended a hearty welcome to the staff members, students and participants of the programme. She shared her experience on faculty prototypes and student prototypes. She motivated the students to keep up the passion of learning, and doing the projects through various activities. She also emphasized on the collaboration of Industry and Academia, through projects.

Ms. Naveen B, Asst. Prof. (Mech.), explained that the core of Engineering is problem-solving, by giving real world examples. He addressed that the Student Development Programme is designed to look into these gaps and seek possible solutions. He has attended the product design workshop in NIT, and he acknowledged his skill-enrichment through this kind of development programme. Ms. Premalatha (EEE) stated that this SDP is a starting push, towards integrating different knowledge minds across various disciplines.

The charge can be activated by a button which is in control of the wearer. The main idea of the jacket is to catch the offender off-guard and incapacitate him. Students took the concept of a stun gun, similar to the ones used by a policeman which can discharge electricity and catch a person off-guard. The principle is to momentarily shock the person into immobility, with a low-voltage pulse delivered between two electrodes. The idea was to make a piece of clothing that will give the girl or woman time to make a quick getaway, if assaulted. It also should be wearable as well as washable. The innovation is not new and was created way back, in 2004. However, the jacket is still awaiting a patent, with the apathetic response shown by leaders and a lack of action which can almost be termed disinterest. Such devices might come as the much-needed aid in times of trouble. The shocks, combined with a pepper spray, and the offender should learn his lesson! Here’s to women power!

Natural Refrigerator:

All-Natural clay refrigerator is a flagship product by Mitti Cool, a venture that is rooted in the concept of going back to our roots, to revisit a healthier, more robust lifestyle. Made from terracotta clay, the Mitti Cool refrigerator is ideal for storing water, milk, fruits and vegetables. This award-winning product provides efficient cooling, without electricity.

  • Runs without electricity
  • Modern design
  • Naturally cools vegetables, fruits, milk, water etc.
  • Very easy to use
  • Variety of health benefits

Bamboo Reinforced Concrete

Bamboo reinforced concrete construction follows the same design, mix proportions and construction techniques as used for steel reinforced. Just that steel reinforcement is replaced by bamboo reinforcement. Nature’s material, bamboo has been widely used for many purposes.

Mainly as a strength bearing material, it has been used for building shelters, from earlier times. Bamboo is used for scaffolding works, formwork supporting stands etc. in building construction works. These are limited to medium-large projects. Even though bamboo has existed from centuries, bamboo as reinforcement material is an innovation in the Civil Engineering construction field. This innovation was based on Clemson’s study that has been conducted in Clemson Agricultural College. Bamboo is biodegradable and renewable in nature. It is energy efficient, as it is of natural origin, and environmentally sustainable by nature. These properties have made it a good option for use in the construction field, for centuries.

Smart Swatch Bharath Waste Management System

Underground waste management pneumatic refuse collection means that refuse is transported underground over long distances in pipes to a collection station, where it is compacted in closed containers. A pneumatic refuse collection system uses air to transport the waste. The air flow is generated by exhausters, creating a negative pressure in the pipe system. The air enters the pipes at atmospheric pressure, entraps the solid waste, and conveys it to the collection station.

A stationary pneumatic refuse collection system can handle multiple waste types concurrently. One refuse chute is used for each separate waste stream. Typically, two to four separate waste streams are handled in a pneumatic refuse system, using the same transport pipe network. In the collection station, each waste stream is directed to a designated container. By collecting each waste type separately, the system safeguards that waste and recyclables do not get mixed in the system.

The major objectives of a stationary pneumatic refuse collection system are:

  • Collection of refuse and recyclables, close to the point of origin.
  • Automated transport of waste and recyclables from the deposit point to the collection station.
  • Minimization of environmental impact, such as energy consumption, gaseous emissions, littering etc.
  • Reduction of waste volume through encouraging recycling.
