Roshni is a portable & self contained system which uses auditory outputs for providing indoor directions to blind. The system consists of a user module and a network of wall mounted units spaced at distanced intervals. User module is a waist worn device comprising of receiver for detecting user movement and a user interface in the form of a mobile phone application. Each wall mounted units emits a unique identification tag that is associated with a location on the digital map of the building. By turning on the device the user can obtain directions to any desired location on the map from current position. As the user moves in the building the waist worn module updates the position of the user. The navigation information is conveyed to the user acoustically using the text- to- speech engine of the mobile. This System is installed in Bharti building IIT Delhi and undergoing user evaluation. The team has already developed an android app named ROSHNI Students of IEC, Abhinav Saksena & Akash Gautam from EC & EI branch is working on the improvement of this project. These students of IEC are doing the project under the guidance of Prof.M.Balakrishnan, Head Assistive Technology Group IIT Delhi.Mr.Druv Jain , Research Associate is the initiator of this project. This project ROSHNI won first award in a competition, I CARE 2013 organized by IBM at IBM research lab Vasant Kunj, Delhi. The category in which the award was proclaimed was Tech 2 Share in which the competitors were BITS Pilani & IIT Roorkee. The students are being reward with a laptop by IBM. ROSHINI also won award in another competition named Incubation Award in India Innovation Initiative – i3 in association with CII, Aglient Technologies & Department of Science & Technology Govt. of India. This project will be funded & supported by world's leading mobile companies & Angel funding group. Device Pilot testing is being carried out at National Science Center, Pragati Maidan Delhi know the potentials, one after the test they will be installing this device on the Science & Technology Center as navigators for both visually impaired and non impaired people. Many MNc are ready to support this project to take up to a higher level. This device is under the process of getting patented.
Some Media Exposure
We have taken efforts in this project. However, it would not have been possible without the kind support and help of many individuals and organizations. We would like to extend my sincere thanks to all of them. Our team is highly indebtedto Dr. Vinay Gupta (HOD, ME & AU) and Mr. Amardeep (Faculty advisor Team DEMONS) for their guidance and constant supervision as well as for providing necessary information regarding the project & also for their support in completing the project. I would like to express my special gratitude and thanks to industry persons for giving us such attention and time.
A vehicle is a hybrid if it utilizes more than one form of onboard energy to achieve propulsion. In practice, that means a hybrid will have a traditional internal-combustion engine and a fuel tank, as well as one or more electric motors and a battery pack.
The objective of this project was to design, simulate, analyse and then fabricate a racing vehicle intended for sale to the non-professional racing enthusiasts. The vehicle should be aerodynamically designed, economic, safe and single seat high performance vehicle. Ergonomics and safety have been an integral part of our design strategy and anthropometric data has been used. Special focus will be put on human safety, the ease of mass production of the vehicle. Almost all the vehicle subsystems will be designed and fabricated by the team indigenously. The vehicle has been fabricated meticulously by the team, using state-of-the-art facilities, comprehensively satisfying both the design goals and manufacturing constraints.

View of Faculty Advisor
As the name indicates, ours is an aspiring team proficient of achieving high altitude with respect to overcoming of new emerging challenges in the design and manufacturing while grasping new technologies and methods for building the ultimate racing machine!
The team has already marked its presence during the scrutiny round by giving a glimpse of its potential to the judges by its way of presentation and confidence to build the Race Car.
This team of 13 members is a perfect unification of students from Mechanical and Electrical stream meant to work hard to realize the goal of winning.
The main departments of this car are as follows:
- Transmission (CVT)
- Braking (Hydraulic)
- Suspension (Double wishbone)
- Steering (Rack & Pinion)
- Electronics The utilization of man power is done keeping in mind every person's proficiency. Thus, better performance in each field can be achieved successfully with keen interest of students.
Report on e-yantra lab
With the growing applications of robotics and embedded systems, the needs of professionals in these fields are in great demand. The applications can be found in household equipments, manufacturing industries, medical, defense, etc. With the intention of creating awareness and skills regarding robotics and embedded systems in students a e-Yantra lab (Embedded Systems and Robotics lab) was established at IEC in August 2016. The concept of e-Yantra lab was started by IIT Bombay with aim to create next generation embedded system engineers. In continuation and addition to this, institution is intended to enhance robotics activities in the campus. The field of robotics is an interdisciplinary area where the knowledge from the domain of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical/Electronics Engineering and Computer Science & Engineering is required. The lab desired to focus on projects and research in the area of robotics and embedded systems. It is a cumulative effort by ECE, EE, CSE and ME department for active learning and hands on experience for those students having keen interest in the field of robotics and embedded systems.
ROBOCON-2018 (The ABU Asia-Pacific Robot Contest)
ABU Robocon is an Asian Oceanian College robot competition, founded in 2002 by Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union. In the competition robots compete to complete a task within a set period of time. The contest aims to create friendship among young people with similar interests who will lead their countries in the 21st century, as well as help advance engineering and broadcasting technologies in the region. The event is broadcast in many countries through ABU member broadcasters.
We (IEC group of Institution) are participating in this contest (ROBOCON-18) first time. The competition of first phase will be held at Pune (1-3rd March 2018). Our student team is preparing for this event.
Benefits to students
Being the part of the Embedded Systems and Robotics Lab (e-Yantra) at IEC students can have the following benefits:
- Students can have a platform to learn and built their own robotic and embedded systems for various applications.
- Students can use the hardware and software resources of e-Yantra lab to built and test their ideas in this area.
- Students can participate in annual robotics competition organized for engineering, and science undergraduates named as e-Yantra Robotics Competition (eYRC).
- e-Yantra gives an internship opportunity at e-Yantra lab, IIT Bombay to the winners of eYRC.
- Students can develop B. Tech projects in this area. Also, they can avail help regarding their B.Tech projects from e-Yantra Resource Development Center (eYRDC).
