The best Projects of 2015-16

Automatic fire exit system

This project focuses on the design on a bus emergency exit tool. The tool will assist passengers to escape the bus as soon as an accident occurs while emergency services have not yet arrived. Unfortunately, hundreds of people die in bus accidents due to lack of security measures. So the aim of the project is to provide a system which is helpful to the passengers when fire is occurred inside the bus. When fire is occurred inside the bus the emergency window opens and water sprinkler function automatically at the same time.

Smart conveyance for physically challenged people

Transportation is very essential for the development and improvement in life because of fast paced life style, reduction in level of difficulties for the physically challenged is increasing day by day. These problems faced by them made us to think and develop the new model car which allows the physically challenged people who have no legs to commute on their own and perform their day to day activities without anyone’s assistance. “HOPE”, which is a conceptual four wheeler car specifically designed and developed for physically challenged people who have no legs will give a new HOPE to their life.

Mechanical characterization of bagasse and coconut coir reinforced with vinylester polymer composite

The Polymer Matrix Composites (PMC’s) are gaining more importance compared to the monolithically materials as being more reliable and less cost. The current research is with bagasse as the major reinforcement and coconut coir as an additional fiber to improve the mechanical property of polymer composite with vinylester as the base material prepared by hand layup process according to ASTM standards.
