Dr. Neelu Jain The project aims at automation in agricultural sector. The system designed aims at making Agriculture management system fully automatic, very simple and effective to manage. The system maintains an optimum water distribution in the field. So, it provides better crop protection. The system is controlled with the help of an Arduino Mega microcontroller. The farmer is given a text message at every stage of the process with the help of the GSM attached. Thus this design is farmer friendly and it also helps the farmer to take decisions even when he is far away from the field.

The use of this reduces the water consumption water logging is prevented. Thus any kind of damage to the crops related to the excess irrigation is prevented. It can be set to lower and upper thresholds to maintain optimum soil moisture saturation and minimize plant wilting.Various sensors are attached and the readings are taken and addressed. The values are obtained in the system and displayed on the website.The farmer is informed if any condition exceeds the maximum values so any damage can be prevented.

Thus the yield of the crop can be removed and any kind of damage to the crops can be prevented and thus this can resolve various problems. The farmer will get an effective system that helps him to manage the agricultural area and thus avoid any cost that he puts in for extra labour. This can be a possible solution to the biggest issue of less productivity in agriculture in India

Prof. Nagendra Shah In a classroom the teacher’s voice diminishes in effect row by row, to a minimal amount heard by students at the back of the classroom, who can miss up to 40% of what's being said in a classroom, effecting how much they are able to learn. 
Voice amplification can solve this problem:
By making the teacher's voice audible in the entire classroom. 
Improve communication, Reduce teacher fatigue Increase learning
Our system incorporate a ‘hands free’ voice amplification system using microphones connected it directly to the sound recording or amplifying equipment with which it is associated.  The other audio equipment is connected to the receiver unit by cable. Hands free microphones are the need of the hour in our institute because these allow teachers to utilize all teaching aids like boards and projectors effectively without having to hold a microphone.
This project aims to add to the technical advancement of our college keeping in line with the times and helping our University in obtaining a greater status and better infrastructure.
Furthermore, we intend to optimise the system and the code by reducing the number of microcontrollers and other general improvements  like variable stored passwords.

Mrs. Jasbir Kaur The main idea behind this project was to devise a system to save the lives of the children locked inside the car due to negligence of the parents/guardians by monitoring the temperature increase in the car and inform the guardians regarding the same. The project is broadly divided into 3 parts: Baby detection, temperature monitoring and alert mechanism.
1. Baby Detection: In this project a load cell has been used to detect if the baby is there in the car seat and temperature sensor for monitoring the car temperature.
2. Temperature Monitoring: After the detection of the baby, temperature was checked by the sensor inside the car which is connected to the microcontroller. If the temperature sensor detects the temperature is 40° C, it will check the time for which the temperature remains same or increases.
3. Alert Mechanism: If the baby is in the seat and temperature has become uncomfortable, the alert system is activated. The alert system in our project has a buzzer and a GSM module. The buzzer in the circuit sounds after the 20 seconds which is used to alert the guardian if he/she is near the car and also to inform the people walking in the vicinity of the car about the increasing temperature. The GSM module will start sending alert messages and calls to the emergency numbers (usually phone numbers of the guardians) registered in the system.

Mrs Divya Dhawan Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) is an automated and contactless smart card based end-to-end solution for fare collection and payment. The project uses a digital ticket i.e. a RFID card. All the passengers are provided with the smart card (RFID card) which carries a unique identity number. The smart card also has an account balance which provides liberty to carry no cash money by the passengers.
 The system uses RFID and GPS technologies to calculate the fare of the user in a centralised manner. The user has to scan his smart card while entering and exiting the bus. Through GPS technology, the exact location is noted and fare is calculated based on the distance travelled by the user. This fare is deducted from the balance of the smart card and remaining balance is displayed on the LCD. When the balance reduces below a permissible amount then the card can be recharged.
 The system reduces man power required for fare collection, avoids recycling of tickets fraudulently by staff, saves the paper consumed by physical tickets, and system is amenable for quick fare changes. Thus, the system reduces the possibility of leakage of revenue through open-standard and secured transaction technology in the public transportation system.

Prof. Amita Soni The project consists of two mobile units which move around the grid simulated by the warehouse router. The mobile units are referred to as 'bots' that are controlled by a central hub. The central unit communicates using the Raspberry Pi module and transmits the required paths to the bots, which use the signee modules. The ultimate aim of the piracy is to simulate the environment wherein the warehouse collection activities can be controlled from the one 'Base Unit' instead of manual collection

Prof. Bipin Kuashal The project, SMART HOME COMTROLLER, is a derivative from the principles of artificial intelligence. The main unit of the system consists majorly of two subsystems. One is the user interface using a LCD screen and the communication of the system with different devices through Wi-Fi communication.
In the following semester, the first subsystem has been fully developed. Currently, the major drivers towards developing any electronic system are minimizing power consumption, increasing speed, and least memory consumption. The MSP430FR5969 Launchpad is used owing to the advantages of an ultra low power mode where there is minimization of the individual peripheral current consumption. The LPM3.5 mode of the microcontroller provides the necessary minimization along with no memory retention and working of only RTC operation is possible. The FRAM technology provides the advantages of speed, low power, and data reliability. It is most suitable in applications that demand any combination of non-volatile storage, high speed, low power, high security, vast durability, and tolerance. Since the FRAM performs very well even at high temperature conditions, the controller can retain data for longer durations of time (e.g. for 10 years at 85°C).
MSP430FR5969 Module was integrated with a SHARP 96*96 LCD. The LCD interfacing involves the embedded development such that features of microcontroller have been displayed which include:
Clock, FRAM speed and endurance, Active power application, Battery application, and an Interactive application: that exploits the use of capacitive touch.

Prof. Arun Kumar Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) is interesting area to researchers because it can solve many problems which seem to be impossible. The essential target of BCI applications is to convert the user’s intent or thoughts to an action in external device or computer and control to these devices. Many applications of BCI concerned on patients suffer from disorders of consciousness (DOC). These patients are unable to make communication with their around world. By using BCI, these patients can control some devices to perform basic and important jobs they need without helping like moving with wheelchair, getting something for eating or drinking by using robotic legs or arms controlled by brain. BCI technologies are used to restore the vision to blinds by connecting an external camera with brain. Applications on device control not include patients only, but also healthy users like whose needs to perform many jobs at the same time like divers, astronauts and drivers where they keep their hands on swimming, operate equipment and the steering wheel. Rabie et al. developed a BCI based system that can help disabled persons to use the web through their brains only.

13 SCADA FOR REMOTE INDUSTRIAL PLANT Akshay (12105059) Dr. Sukhwinder Singh The project is designed to develop a Remote Industrial plant with Automated Capability using sensor based modules. The various applications introduced in this project are Conveyer Belt, Temperature Sensor, Fire Alarm, Light Control. As temperature rises in plant can be sensed by sensor and data can be acquired on LCD. Light can be controlled automatically when intensity of light gets dimmed sensed by LDR. When fire breaks in the plant that can be sensed by sensor and buzzer sets as Fire Alarm. The main application of this project is motion of conveyer belt, that is how to control the conveyer and count the products.  All data is acquired on LCD to control the industrial processes. It has the centralized station or computer from that all the control signals are transferred to the LCD. In industries it is essential to monitor all the processes and control the factors affecting them. Adapting Data Acquisition technology one can achieve the above mentioned objective effectively, and thus save a lot of manpower. It reduces the burdensome tasks like regular checking of the various parameters in the industry by acquiring the parameters values at a regular or particular time intervals.
The main aim of the project is to process the real time data acquisition under supervisory control for large scale remote industrial environment. For achieving this real-time scenario, a temperature logging system for a remote plant operation is taken. Here temperature sensors are duly interfaced to the microcontroller. Data collected from the temperature sensors are often sent to the microcontroller which is in turn transferred to a PC through the serial communication devices.

Ms. Jyoti Kedia. Abstract- The aim of the project was to develop a system to take the attendance of the students using biometrics. Fingerprint sensing was the most reliable, easy and cost effective way for the same. So a system to take attendance using fingerprint sensing was designed, which enrolled the required fingerprints under the enroll function, and similarly could be deleted using the delete function. The enrolled prints could be matched by a corresponding ID number, which would show up when the prints would match.
For this, an Arduino board (UNO) was used for computational purposes. An 16*2 LCD was used for displaying the messages and corresponding enrollment number. An optical fingerprint scanner was used because the main objective of the project was to make a biometric system cost effective. Programming was done in C language.

Prof. Neha Bhullar The project “Home Security system” has shown the concept of an automatic home security. As in the modern world everything is going automatic, we have built a system which will automatically sense Fire and the entry of an unwanted person in the absence of the owner of house through password confirmation and IR sensors. We have deployed a microcontroller which is used to sense the signals from all the sensors which are placed in the house for sensing different type of failures or security conditions. It is also possible to send a message when there is any unwanted situation in the home sensed by security system, apart from this an audio visual alarm is also planted in the house which will get activated at that time. 

There are three sets of sensors: one of which sense any type of Power failure , second will sense the entry or exit of any unwanted person in the absence of owner of house, third for sensing any type of fire . When any type of Power failure is sensed by the Power failure sensor it will get activated an give a low signal to microcontroller’s pin , and this pin when sensed by the microcontroller then it will activate the audio visual alarm, apart from this a SMS is also sent to the owner of house. Similarly when any person enters in the house through the door then an intruder circuit (which act as a sensor for sensing the entry or exit of an unwanted person) will get activated and give a low signal to microcontroller which is sensed by the controller. Then controller in turn activates the audio visual alarm and also sends a SMS to the owner of house. Similarly when any type of fire is sensed by the fire sensor it will get activated an a low signal is send to the microcontroller which in turn activates the audio visual alarm and also sends an SMS to the owner of house

Ms Swati Sharma The Project “A Smart Home(connecting your world)” specifies the need of today’s world in such a way that it is becoming the essential components in every person life. Everyone wants their work to get easy which is only possible through automation. In this automaition of things is achieved through IOT(Internet of Things) such that their house can be controlled from the internet of Smart Android App. And the user entry to house is controlled through Touchscreeen and NFC(Near Field Connections).
Some of the underlying steps will explain the working of our project:
1. The user gains access the house through an NFC enable door lock. The access can be granted through an NFC tag or a secure communication between NFC smartphone and lock.
2. On entering house, user’s smartphone get automatically connected to the internet through home WIFI network.
3. If the user wishes to watch television or play music on Surround system, all he/she has to do is to place his mobile on table which has NFC tag and does action respectively.
4. Similarly these NFC tags can trigger other actions like opening GPS app in car.
5. The NFC cards information can be changed by APP in smartphone according to our needs.
6. If user wishes to control FAN or Tube-light in other room, then he/she can simply open this app and does accordingly.
7. These devices are connected over the hosted network such that app and devices share same information all over the network.
