Innovative Students Projects

Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering has started a research and development centre, ‘GANITH’ constituted by 5 professors and a cluster of meticulous students of Electronics and Communication Engineering Department, a platform for the future of innovations at MCET. GANITH has been keeping close liaison with DRDO establishments, VSSC and private industries, for advises and developments. Some of the innovations at Musaliar College of Engineering & Technology are given below.

 

  1. Secured Method of LPG Gas Supply and Efficient Waste Disposal Management System through Metro Rail

A novel concept of secured domestic LPG supply and efficient waste disposal system using Cochin metro rail system is proposed in this project. At present, Cochin metro has 40 km length from Angmali to Thrippunithura, these places are heavily populated areas in Ernakulam district. So waste management of existing system is very poor and inefficient .Similarly, LPG Gas deficiency is a common issue in these places.  We suggest a new concept to solve these issues by placing a slow running ropeway under the Metro rail track, which can carry more than 1 lakh waste bins and LPG carrying boxes. This project was guided by Prof Lijesh L.

  1. Hand Held Food Testing System

Nowadays, food safety is very important. There is a rapid increase in the number of hotel/restaurant food consumers. In day to day life, we hear about a large number of news about food poison. Outdated/expired food will cause some major problems in human health. So there is an important need for the public/food inspectors to check the food instantly, without any delay in time or laboratory assistance. The Hand Held Food Testing System is like a pen, box or mobile phone which can check the food instantly and make decision with the help of predefined data. This will reduce the delay in getting the food samples checked at different laboratories. This project was guided by Prof.Juby Raju.

  1. Smart Invigilator

This project aims to prevent malpractices during examinations. It is a pair of eye glasses which senses the eye movement and anxiety of the student and finds if any malpractice is being carried out by the students during examinations and informs the authorities about any malpractice being done.This project was guided by Prof. Lijesh L.

  1. Desk Less Computing

This is an innovative idea where we can use our palm as keyboard and mouse of the computer at any place, anytime. There is a constant interaction between the computer and user, i.e. there is no need to turn the device on or off. Another feature is the ability to multi-task. It is not necessary to stop what you are doing to use the device; it is augmented into all other actions. These devices can be incorporated by the user to act like a prosthetic. It can therefore be an extension of the user’s mind and/or body. This Project was guided by Prof  Shamla V M.

 

  1. Password Based Circuit Breaker

Nowadays, electrical accidents to the line man are increasing, while repairing the electrical lines due to the lack of communication between the electrical substation and maintenance staff. This project gives a solution to this problem to ensure the safety of the line man. In this proposed system, the control (ON/OFF) of the electrical lines lies with line man. This Project was guided by Prof. Nidiya Habeeb.

  1. Intelligent Traffic Management

This project can assist the traffic police in identifying the traffic rules’ violators by checking the speed of their vehicle and correlating with documents. One of the aspects of this system is the traffic management control system, which is useful especially in walkers. If the system is not properly manage, people who will cross the pedestrians will not easily cross since they know that vehicles will not be efficiently controlled. This project was guided by Prof. Lijesh L.

Achievements

Two final year projects, ‘Hand Held Food Testing Device’ and ‘Secured Method of LPG Gas Supply and Efficient Waste Disposal Management System through Metro Rail’ were selected for the final rounds of national level project symposium, ‘YUVA MASTERMIND ’sponsored by Malayala Manorama at Kozhikode on 5th and 6th February 2015.
