Two projects (Final year B.Tech Electronics & Communication Engineering, MET’s School Of Engineering, Mala, Thrissur) got funded from Kerala state government.

 

Title of the research proposal: ADVANCED POWER TRACKER

Students: AKHIL JOHNSON, ATHIRA JOSEPH, ATHIRA K U, JESNA JOSE

Name and Designation of Principal Investigator (PI): Ms. Reema Luiz, Assistant Professor, Dept. Of Electronics & Communication Engineering, MET’s School Of Engineering, Mala, Thrissur.

   Abstract:

The project is based on upgrading the present energy meters which is used to analyze the power consumed in a house, factories and other organizations. Measuring your energy con­sumed is the first step toward finding ways to decrease it. While almost every residence has an electric meter, it only shows total household energy (kWh) consumed. Here a graphical approach of energy meter is obtained. The graphical output can be viewed in our mobile phone and also in the display connected to processing unit. The graphical approach mainly consist of three graphs one shows the present readings, second one shows the daily power usage and the last one shows the monthly output. This energy meter is also linked with home automation system which can be controlled using mobile. In order to satisfy all this needs, raspberry pie can be used. The Raspberry Pie and the mobile application can be linked by using a latest technology IOT (Internet of things), where the output from the sensor is processed using the Raspberry Pie. After tracking the power dissipation, the over usage can be controlled using the android. Using this project, the electrical energy can be used efficiently.

  Precise objectives of the project:

(a) Can compare the electricity bill of the K.S.E.B with the rate that is displayed in the mobile.

 (b) To obtain the overall current usage in residence.

(c) For controlling the home appliances using home automation even when we are not in          home(Using IOT).

(d) To control unwanted power loss.

Title of the research proposal: Design and implementation of “GLASS BOX”-a novel method to find out the cause of accident using GPS technology.

Students: AMRUTHA.P.S, ANAMIKA, HIBA BASHEER, HARIKRISHNAN.P

 

 

Name and Designation of Principal Investigator (PI): ATHIRA P NAIR, Assistant Professor, Dept. Of Electronics & Communication Engineering, MET’s School Of Engineering, Mala, Thrissur.

 

Abstract:

The aim of this project is to implement a system that performs rescue operations on an accident in remote areas .Obviously such situations cannot be treated properly. The project Glass box with video evidence for accidents will give the complete solution. Through Raspberry Pie the required authority could get a clear-cut video evidence of the accident. In our project we are integrating GPS and mailing technologies in one application. Here the antenna and the sensors are fitted on a suitable position in the vehicle so that the signals from the satellite are received without any hindrance. The data from the GPS module is supplied to a raspberry pie which decodes the data and retrieves the position information.

         This project also helps to eliminate the drawbacks of black-box. The existing technology for finding the cause of accidents is Black Boxes. But the main drawbacks of the black box is that it can't report the accident immediately for providing rescue operations. Also if we fail to recover the black box after the accident, then we don't get the information regarding the cause of accidents. This glass box with video evidence for accidents is quite responding, accurate and user friendly. Further, it will compensate the disadvantages of the conventional accident detection systems like a black box. Here we are sending video clips of 16s duration when an accident occurs. So we get clear cut evidence about the cause of the accident. Since Glass box is transparent, we will get the video clip even if we fail to recover the system. So this will also helpful for rescue operations.

Precise objectives of the project:

This is a system that helps in providing video evidences on an accident especially in remote areas. The glass box system is more effective and advantages than a black box system. This is because, the Raspberry Pie used in the glass box system can get a clear cut video evidence of the accidents with the help of gps(Global Positing System) and mailing technologies. The antenna and the sensors on the glass box are positioned suitably so that, the signals from the satellite are received without any interference. The data obtained from the gps module is supplied to a raspberry pie which in turn decodes this data and retrieves the information on the position of the accident. In this way, glass box eliminates the drawback of a black box and effectively helps the rescue team with valuable information including the positional data and video evidences.
