“This competition is to encourage young minds and innovations. I came up with the project titled "Conversion of Waste Heat into Electricity using Thermoelectric Arrangement ". The idea of this project is to increase the efficiency of Electrical motors which has a lot of applications both on industrial and agricultural platforms. At Ingenium, I got an opportunity to showcase and discuss my project with the engineers from CATERPILLAR. I came to know the scope of the project and the further developments to be done. Pragyan helped me a lot to mingle with young minds from different colleges. Finally, I am very thankful to the organisers of INGENIUM for their patience. Hope Ingenium continues with a blooming response.”
“Our project name is “Smart helmet”. Nowadays, the numbers of road accidents are rapidly increasing and around 60% of the accidents result in death. Although police made wearing helmet compulsory, people ignored these rules in areas where police checks were not made. So in our project, we tried to solve these difficulties by making the vehicle check for the helmet in riders’ head and ensure that the rider is not drunk automatically, only if these conditions are true, the bike will start. Also, in case of an accident, we will be sensing that using vibration sensors and the system will automatically send a message to preloaded mobile numbers with GPS location of the accident and vehicle number. This can provide instant help to them. By participating in Ingenium of Pragyan ’18, we got an opportunity to explain our project to different types of people and we got few suggestions that can make our project better. We are happy to be a part of Pragyan and winning in one of the best colleges in Tamil Nadu. It has increased our level of confidence and helped us to proceed further. Thank you so much.”
