Brief on the projects on Display :-
RECYCLE. U Pavan Ravi 1MJ15CS168, Sahil Malhotra 1MJ15CS128
Reusable trash are often neglected and thrown away like regular garbage .The examples are plastic, electronic waste, clothes, seeds, furniture, vessels and utensils etc. Some of these materials like plastic are highly dangerous for the planet and need to be reused. Even if there are reusable shops most people are lazy to find them or they are pretty far from destination.
The aim of this application is to reduce the work of users by providing them with a user friendly interface through which the reusable waste can be linked to the employees of different social organisations through which they will be able dispose their waste in an eco-friendly way at their doorstep.
Detection of Speed Breaker and Speed Reduction Using IoT. Ankit Mishra 1MJ15CS705, Rahul Kumar 1MJ15CS725, Amandeep Singh 1MJ15CS703
Every year accidents happen on Indian roads and 60% are because of irregularities on the Indian roads , out of all the speed breakers on Indian roads 92% are unmarked which makes it difficult for the driver to notice it and stop the vehicle on time, which lead to serious injuries and in many cases deaths. In 2017, a whopping 1.47 lakh people died in road deaths in India, which is equivalent of the population of Shillong. In 2018, the number of fatalities remained almost the same with a minor drop of 1.6%.
Here we are implementing a Speed breaker detection and Speed reduction system on a test vehicle, in which we will show the implementation of such a system, and it may be possible to implement it on a full scale with the same technology and components. A camera will be fitted on a Raspberry-Pi module which will be responsible for detection of the Speed breaker and sending the appropriate signals using I2C protocol. When the Motor driver will receive hump positive signal it will reduce the motor rotations to 40 RPM. The Arduino module is responsible for the movement of the vehicle and controls the vehicle motors. The signals to control the vehicle will be send through and app which will be user controlled to a Bluetooth module fitted on the vehicle, which will be sent to the Motor driver
CIBO – The Smart Canteen app. Megha K 1MJ16EC063, R Nikhila 1MJEC084, Chetan 1MJ16CS034, Deesun 1MJ16CS043, Aishwarya 1MJIS058
It is often observed in colleges that the canteens are completely filled with students and teachers during the breaks. Ordering food becomes a big problem as the token system/manual system might lead to a long queue, pushing, quarrels eventually delay in the arrival of the order. In order to avoid this, we have come up with a solution where we are developing an app in which the food is pre-ordered and then the money can be paid online through a payment gateway.
The orders can be placed by them 2 hours prior. The canteen members can take a count on the number of orders placed for the particular item and can start making them 10 mins prior. In this way, it shall stay hot and can even save some good time. This app will be beneficial to the customers as well as the canteen managers to manage customers’ interest as well as their quality of service, .this also reduces the wastage of food which will reduce the loss to the canteen managers.

The latest technology on wireless optical network called Li-Fi has been developing from past few years. Li-Fi called light fidelity uses a light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for data transmission. Using the concept of Li-Fi, vehicles can be tracked and also communicate with each other using LEDs and a receiver circuit. Vehicle to Vehicle communication(V2V) is an intelligent transportation system. Using Li-Fi system, it is possible to communicate among vehicles in order to avoid accidents. In this paper Li-Fi technology is used for tracking of vehicles. LEDs are used in the street lights as a transmitting source, where each LED has an identification code that are transmitted and are received by the receiver module present in the vehicles. Li-Fi technology works on simple data principle, that is when LED is ON a digital data 1 is transmitted and if it is OFF digital data 0 is transmitted. The receiving circuit consists of a solar panel and an amplifier to recover back the original input signal.
Solar Portable Water Purifier. Harsha A 1MJ16EE017, Dheemanth KP 1MJ16EE013, Shrithi Ramesh 1MJ16EE033, Yashwanth DL 1MJ15EE047
The lack of clean drinking water is the problem that plagues many areas of the world today. Long term storage of water in plastic bottle, leads to adulteration due to the release of chemical substance ‘Bisphenol A(BPA)’, which leach into the water. This causes health issues, which has to be avoided. Most of the current technologies available to combat this problem, are expensive and consume too much of power. The variation in the contamination of water at different places during excursions is inevitable. The use of chemical processing mechanisms of purification is an affordable solution, but it has known to be hazardous if used improperly. With the idea of low cost and sustainability in mind, we plan to develop a water filtration system that will use natural energy in order to power the purification system. It’s a affordable purifier to all the classes of people. The portable specifications of purifier allows the user to it at any place, even carry it. This product is a boon to the travellers, since it’s going to be attached in cars and bikes.
By using food grade plastic, it ensures water is safe to drink. Water will enter the system, where it will flow through the 3 carbon filters, which then passes through a high pressure pump and RO system, and then processed by a UV purifier. As the power supply alternative of solar, as battery can be used. The purification process uses UV lamp of 11 watt and also has UV fail alarms, which ensure certain purification. We plan to use photovoltaic technology to transfer sun ray into electric potential that will be stored in a battery back-up system will power the UV purification process of the system. It requires a power input of 12V which is given either by solar battery or car battery. The unused water which is produced from the filter is redirected to windshield wiper reservoir parts in case of cars and is used for cleaning body part of the same, in case of bike unused water is stored in a separate reservoir which can be used to clean bike and wash hands.

The project on Hybrid Bicycle mainly focusses on energy conservation and to reduce pollution. The Hybrid Bicycle system consists of a light weight and compact hub motor in the front wheel which is powered from a lithium-ion/SMF (sealed maintenance free) lead acid battery. Three different ways of charging the battery are incorporated: the 220V AC wall outlet, energy from IC engine, and regenerative braking. The Hybrid Bicycle enables substantially longer distance power assisted cycling by regenerating power from IC engine and through alternator and charging it in the battery.
A hybrid bike has been developed, along with a switching control methodology to address electrical switching between engine and motor power to achieve smooth power transmission to the wheels, thus reducing fuel consumption. A conventional sequential-based switching control is developed to operate the system with a motor at low speeds and the engine at higher speeds, using the number of rotations per unit time as the switching parameter or using a kill switch we can switch manually without any sensors and programming. The logged output is analysed and the performance efficiency of the hybrid vehicle is compared against conventional internal combustion (IC) engines.

Automated Cellular Concrete Pouring and Compaction. Mallikarjun T A 1MJ16CV028, NIKHIL P S 1MJ16CV038, DHANARAJ M B 1MJ16CV012, Devappa 1MJ16CV011, Praveen M 1MJ14CV055
In the construction of RCC structure the series of work are done like batching, mixing, transporting, pouring and compacting of concrete and cutting , bar bending for reinforcement and finally finishing and curing. But automation in this field had come up-to pumping of concrete by the introduction of RMC plant and transit mixers. Until now concrete pouring and compaction for an RCC structure is done manually. But it takes lot of time and also we require skilled labors, as they are not available as per need we are not achieving accuracy in construction. Compaction of concrete is an important component in the process of laying a concrete structure. Compaction is a process which expels entrapped air from freshly placed concrete and packs the aggregate particles of the concrete mix together, increasing the density of the concrete. If compaction is not carried out as required, a series of defects may become apparent and the concrete structure will suffer from significant loss of strength. We are making the whole process of laying concrete and its compaction to automated system. This may help us in saving time and also it doesn’t require more skill labors hence we can also achieve cost effective and since it is automatically programmed the accuracy will be more. In this setup the compacters are combined with the hose pipe of concrete pump. The concrete is poured through hose pipe to a given point and it proceeded by compaction through needle compacters for a certain period of time for the given area and it is continued further for every place in the RCC structure. The whole setup is supported by the frame structure, which will be accessible in all the three axis. This will be monitored through manual or through software which makes our work still easier.
