The Best BTech Projects for 2016 are:
‘Design & Analysis of Controller for Plastic Injection Moulding machine’, by Chaitanya Jhanji
The project provides a low cost solution to control the coolant parameters of a plastic injection mould by controlling the cooling line flow of water using arduino UNO microcontroller, temperature sensors, a solenoid valve and relay. No such technology is commercially available in the market to control the coolant parameters. The project was awarded a cash prize of Rs. 1 Lakh standing first.
‘Low- cost Multi-point Interactive Whiteboards using the WIIMOTE’, by Dikshima Guglani, Sandeep Sachdev & Vineet Gupta.
It is a low cost interactive display device that aims to convert a projection surface onto a touch screen resulting in enhancing the human computer interaction. Through this tool Items can be dragged, clicked and copied. A java application known as PRISM is also developed to further enhance its usage. The team received Rs 75,000 as second prize.
‘Security Box’, by Sharad Bansal & Nishant Chaturvedi
It comprises a compact, movable, detachable, expandable security box meant to cover security aspect right from our homes to an individual and beyond. The project received third prize and a prize money of Rs. 50,000.
