Projects

Driver Profiling: The driver profiling system consists of two main modules i.e. Software & Hardware. The hardware part of the system consists of different vehicle components such as driving seat, steering wheel, a gear assembly, indicator, accelerator and brake pedals etc. These components have switches connected to them to identify any activity on these components. The data coming from all these switches are fed to the micro-controller which in turn serially transmits it to the Software part. The software simulator environment serially receives the data from the micro-controller and controls the vehicle dynamics based on this data. The profiler records the data sets, coming from the micro-controller, and compares it with the standardized patterns of different profiles and categorizes the driver accordingly. <Read More>

Gesture Recognition System for Hearing and Speech Impaired: Many normal people do find difficulty to communicate with deaf or hearing impaired individuals. Commonly people do not understand the gestures performed by the deaf or hearing impaired person. This project aim to give hearing or speech impaired people a new hope, a hope in shape of a user friendly system that helps them to communicate effectively. <Read More>

Modular Interactive Tiles: This project deals with the evolution of entertaining games using the concept of tangible tiles. Here, tangible tiles are used to construct an interactive playground where the player can play different games and also give feedback related to each game. The games implemented are predator/prey games which demand physical activity amongst the users and therefore act as a tool to be used against obesity. <Read More>
