State-level event showcases students’ projects

An automated alarm system to ensure safety of customers operating an ATM, an automatic omelette maker and an improvised patrol vehicle for the police, are among the innovative models on display at BVB College of Engineering and Technology here.

These are projects of final year engineering students from 110 engineering colleges in the State, funded by the Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology, and will be displayed at the 37{+t}{+h}series of State-level seminar and exhibition of Student Project Programme that began in Hubli on Monday.

Soon after the inauguration of the two-day event on the college premises, the engineering students got their working models for display and explained their projects to the visitors.

A total of 102 working models of various innovative projects are on display at the event; 105 models would be presented through seminars at the event. Among these presentations, around 50 are on biofuels.

In view of the recent attack on a woman inside an ATM facility in Bangalore, the students of Rajarajeshwari College of Engineering, Kumbalgod, Bangalore, led by their team guide Soumya M., have developed a system that will alert the police and bank manager in case of unusual activity inside the ATM. Simultaneously the ATM door would also get locked.

The students of M.S. Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bangalore, have developed an unmanned mobile patrol unit for use of the police and the armed forces in the border areas. Guided by Professor Raghavendra Nakod, the students of host college BVB College of Engineering and Technology have developed a food automation device that can prepare an omelette in 3.5 minutes. The device has three bowls – one for putting egg, another for onion, chilli and other ingredients, and a third one for putting oil.

The event will conclude on Tuesday at 3 p.m. It was inaugurated by Gopal K. Kadekodi, former Director of Institute for Social and Economic Change, Bangalore.
