    The average human age is increased and a common problem that the elderly people are facing is ‘impaired mobility’. New policies continue to make newly built areas accessible to disabled, but old buildings can’t be re-developed because they are without elevators. So ‘Staircase Climbing Wheelchair’ is a need of day. Many designs are already converted into the actual products but they are not cost effective or affordable. This project proposes a new and most importantly ‘Affordable’ design of a stair-climbing capable mechanism for the wheelchairs for elderly or disabled. Stair Lift is one more application in which this configuration can be adopted to avoid Back-Slip

    Abstract with photo/video:
    Many old buildings in the densely populated areas of society are without elevators. The task of climbing stairs is a major challenge for physically handicapped people or for elderly people due to the age dependent ‘impaired mobility’. To transfer material from ground floor to upper levels is another challenge for even a normal bodied person living in old and high buildings without elevators. So ‘Staircase Climbing Platform’ is a need of the day, at least in the developing countries. The platform is to serve the purpose of chassis. Depending upon the body that is built on it, the different versions like ‘Staircase Climbing Wheel-chair’ or ‘Staircase Climbing Trolley for transfer of material’ can be derived. They are also useful in the buildings with lifts, in case of unavailability of power backup. The designs which are already developed in this regard are not cost effective. This proposal is a new, innovative, simple but ‘affordable’ design of stair-climbing platform and is a complete new application of the ‘Gear Generation’ principle. It uses wheels with their profile similar to a ‘Pinion Gear’, perfectly conjugate to the staircase profile, treating it as a ‘Rack’. Due to the elimination of complicated parts and transmission elements, it is easily adaptable to develop low cost platform with stair climbing ability.

    Abstract
    For every state utility in India, along with state owned generation there are two major sources of power available to fulfill the load demand. They are, Central Govt owned generation i.e. central sector generation and power purchased from power trading market.
    For optimum scheduling additional sources of power need to be incorporated in the generation scheduling algorithm, along with their individual cost functions.
    In India, power available from central sector generators is charged through frequency dependant tariff called Availability Based Tariff (ABT) and power available at market is charged with Market Clearing Price (MCP). In the present work, the feasibility of incorporating power available at market as ‘market generation’ while preparing a day ahead schedule is established. The incorporation of frequency dependant central sector generation as ‘grid generator’ is reported. Thus, optimum scheduling problem becomes distributing load amongst internal generators, central sector generator and power market, with appropriate cost functions to minimize cost of generation.
    The objective of work is to develop suitable Artificial Intelligent Tool to ascertain the randomly varying parameters such as frequency, price of power and integrate them for generation scheduling task to derive commercial as well as technical benefits.

    Abstract
    Developments in the last two decades in power system introduced many technological and conceptual changes in the Power Sector. The power is available from conventional generation, purchasing or selling power from or to the market, buying power from other utilities (mainly Central Sector Plants in India) and from renewable energy sources such as wind. But the availability of renewable generation and the price of power available from central sector plants and power trading market are not certain and change randomly from time to time. Anticipating and incorporating the uncertainties in the generation and price of power from alternative sources of power, pose a challenge in the day ahead activity. The present work addresses this issue. Day ahead Wind Power Estimation: The available generation from conventional energy sources using stored resources or stored water is quite controlled, predictable and almost constant in nature. However the non-conventional enaergy sources are intermittent in nature due to uncertainty in the fuel availability. The uncertainty associated with wind speed and hence in wind power generation needs to be analyzed. ANN is developed to predict wind speed and wind power using typical representative data of Wind Park installed by SUZLON Energy Group as a case study. The applicability of ANN for predicting wind power generation is revalidated.

    Abstract :
    Once again POWER WASTED BY OVER CHARGING has raised a serious issue which leads to damage the various electronic gadget if charged for quite long and may burn and/or explode. This may not only cause permanent damage to mobile but also to humans and property. Today, we are using numerous devices, both electronic and mechanical, for various purposes in industries, Boiler plant, etc where human interference is not possible. Also heavy current due to SHORT-CIRCUIT causes excessive heating which results in fire or explosion. Sometimes short-circuit takes the form of an arc and causes considerable damage to the system. If the voltage remains low for even a few seconds, the consumer's motors may be shut down and generators on the power system may become unstable. For this None of the present system removes the plug/adapter mechanically/physically from respective socket automatically  Working principle of the invented device essentially comprise a set of components so configured that would allow to engage and/or disengage male/female plugs/pins from respective sockets automatically after a predetermined time period mechanically without any human intervention. Example: When any electronic device(example-mobile phone) get fully charged ,device get triggered and removes the charging pin/plug physically by patented designed mechanism to save the power losses.

    Abstract :
    This is a new concept of analyzing the signal in frequency domain using an App based on Android OS. Analog input signal is applied to hardware signal conditioning block, where it is filtered to avoid the aliasing effect, programmable gain/attenuation is provided to the signal using an programmatically selectable amplifier /attenuator. The signal is digitized using internal ADC of ds PIC. Digitized samples are then transferred to the android device serially via Bluetooth, which is controlled by dsPIC. A java based application installed on android device accepts samples, performs FFT on them and display the signal in frequency domain. The performance of the proposed embedded system (i.e. Hardware & software) is then measured against some standard spectrum analyzer parameters. Greater cost reduction and smaller size of the embedded system offer advantages over conventional instruments.

    Abstract :
    The research work is a novel approach by considering the fact that the mortality rate in breast cancer is highly dependent on time of analysis by the pathologist. Thus the main aim of this research is to reduce the detection time by novel algorithm implementation on hardware Devkit processing for estimating the severity of cancer in the breast tissue samples. The process provided a reliable, repeatable, and fast method that could replace the traditional method of manual examination and estimation. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is widely used being cheaper, convenient to operate and conservable and for clear morphology. The IHC markers are Estrogen receptor (ER,) Progesterone receptor (PR), Human Epidermal Growth Factor (HER2) that give clear indications of the presence of cancer cells in the tissue sample. HER2 remains the most reliable marker for the detection of breast cancer. The markers discussed is Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (HER2) that gives clear indications of the presence of cancer cells in the tissue sample. HER2 is identified based on the color and density of the cell membrane staining based on the threshold for identifying and categorizing the cancerous cells as per severity of damage. The HER2 evaluation, the ratio of extent of staining to the total size of image gives an estimate of the severity of cancer cell spread. The evaluation of HER2 is done using simulation software, implemented on embedded processor evaluation board Devkit. The pathologist truth reality results and the hardware supported modified algorithm based results are found concurrent.

    Developed:
    A project titled “Build and Control of Bionic arm using EMG signal”Product Innovation Lab is developed in PI lab. The project is sponsored by LA Foundation, Dassault Systemes.
    The major goal of the project is to provide the society with low cost, light weight Bionic arm for the amputees. This bionic arm is controlled by the EMG signals taken from the amputees. The main research is concentrated around increasing the Degree of Freedom of the bionic arm and improving its functionality. The EMG signal is extracted from the human body, transforms are applied to it and features are extracted from the data. Further by applying classification and various Machine Learning algorithms, the learning model is built. Most of the prosthetic arms designed and used in India are very costly yet they fail to provide the high Degree of Freedom (DOF). Due to less DOF, the movements of the arm are restricted to only a few actions like gripping. Design of bionic arm completed herein consists of more Degree of Freedom and yet it is cost effective. Using 3 D printing, a light weight bionic arm is fabricated as shown below.
