CSE department has developed an online web based Public Distribution System (PDS) for Below Poverty Line people. The objective of the project is to make the system more transparent, efficient and accountable with the help of Information & Communication Technology. Students developed the software under the guidance of HoD of CSE Prof Anup Gade and with the help of Dot Net technology.
ECE & ETRX department have designed a ‘Smart Conveyor Belt & Intelligent Power Controller using PLC, SCADA and microcontroller’ for small scale industries. The small scale industry has constraints of space, manpower, capital and electricity.
The system uses multilevel workspaces connected through a small conveyor belt with built in sensors, these sensors senses the availability of amount of light on the shop floor and then automatically turns devices and machines not in use.
Students did it under the guidance of HoD, ECE Prof Parag Jawarkar and HoD (ETRX) Prof Shruti Paunikar in association with SMEC Research Labs, Mumbai, i-Vantage India (P)Ltd, Hyderabad and OMNI Power Systems, Nagpur. The press conference was organised by Prof Vandana Muley.
