The department emphasizes the need to link proper selection of final year projects and seminars with the aptitude and future plans of the students. The students take up projects in groups based on the knowledge gained from their courses and develop and complete an engineering project as a team
Here are some of the excellent projects done by the students:
Wall Climbing Robot
Project done by Akhil G Ravi, Sanju N Raju, Gauri Bala R, Vijitha Sharma during their final semester guided by Ms Amritha Mary A.S
The wall climbing robot is required for cleaning outer walls of high rise buildings, construction work, inspection of storage tanks in nuclear power and all such areas where direct human interventions can be fatal. This project was presented in the international conference on Intelligent systems modeling and simulation organized by ISMS 2013, Bangkok, Thailand
Robotic arm with the help of HAPTIC technology
Project done by Anoop Nath R,Ramanadhan R, Subin S B, Neethu Gopinath, Nisha I.P guided by Mr Aravind sekhar.
Haptic arm technology or haptics is a tactile feedback technology which takes advantage of the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations or motions to the user. This mechanical stimulation can be used to assist in the creation of virtual objects in a computer simulation, to control such virtual objects and to ensure the remote control of machines and devices.
Multilevel inverter using pulse width modulation
Project done by Anoop A.K,Nithin Krishnan Sreejitha S.G,Sruthy M.V and guided by Ms Divya H
Multilevel inverter as compared to other single level inverters has advantages like minimum harmonic distortion reduced EMI/RFI generation and can operate on several voltage levels
Tele-operated multipurpose Rover
Project dome by Gopika B.S, Haripriya P Nair,Mahesh m.G,Vishnu V P and Guided by Mr Aravind Sekhar.
The rover is designed to follow the control commands which are transmitted as DTMF signals by the user. It is used for surveillance, spy work, weather inspection, aftermath analysis of disasters, in bio-hazardous areas, fault detection in gas pipelines etc.
Automatic parallel parking mechanism
Project done by Jonny Paul, Krishna Prasad.K, Neethu .P, Praveena PC by guide : Amritha Mary A.S.
This an automated parking system. When the car has identified a space, the car checks to see whether that space is large enough to park in. If it determines that there is sufficient space, the car will begin parallel parking into that space. It uses information from sensors placed on the front, right, and rear of the car to direct the car into the parking space. Once the car was parked, it will remain in that position until it is reset.
