Amrita Center for Wireless Networks and Applications (AmritaWNA) has been granted a new U.S. patent (US20170230841A1) for its OceanNet project, developed by a team of researchers from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.
Amrita Center for Wireless Networks & Applications (AmritaWNA) has received a new US patent (Patent number US9996168B2) for “Wearable wireless tongue controlled devices”.
Amrita Center for Wireless Networks and Applications students and researchers won 1st prize in Maxim IoT Contest conducted at BIEC, Bengaluru on March 4, 2017. Sruthy K., Kripesh E. V., Keerthi S. Mohan and Gayatri B. from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham won the award of Rs. 1 Lakh for the project titled, ‘Remote Patient Monitoring System’, after being shortlisted among the top 10 teams.
Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham was awarded the ‘World Centre of Excellence on Landslide Disaster Reduction’ by the International Program on Landslides (IPL) at the fourth World Landslide Forum, which was held at Ljubljana, Slovenia from 29th May-2nd June, 2017. This title will be held by the institution till 2020.
Dr. Maneesha V. Ramesh, Director, AmritaWNA and Dr. Maarten van Steen, Scientific Director of CTIT, University of Twente spoke on the topic Wireless Communication for Disaster Management during the one-day conference. As part of the conference, Dr. Maneesha discussed how wireless communication is used in giving an early warning on landslides.
The Minister of State for Planning, Science & Technology and Earth Sciences Dr. Ashwani Kumar stated in Rajya Sabha today that so far no technology system is developed to predict natural calamities in the country. However, a pilot deployment of a tailored real time wireless sensor network (WSN) is designed and developed by the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham for monitoring and detection of heavy rainfall induced landslides only over a selected hill slope of Munnar, Kerala.
NABARD Award for Rural Innovations 2012 is an initiative of NABARD to recognize and reward innovations which have created a paradigm shift in the standard or quality of life in the rural India
Dr. Maneesha V Sudeer, Director of Amrita centre for Wireless Networks and Application, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, receiving the NABARD Award from then Finance Minister, Dr. P Chidambaram, for her outstanding commitment towards the development of Landslide detection device at the rural villages of Munnar, Idukki.
AmritaWNA’s Wireless Sensor Network-based Landslide Detection System has officially received a United States patent and trademark. The system was engendered via the prestigious Indo-European WINSOC (Wireless Sensor Networks with Self-Organization Capabilities for Critical and Emergency Applications) project. The Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) system was developed in order to detect and issue early warnings for rainfall induced landslides and, subsequently, save lives.
The Amrita Center for Wireless Networks and Applications (AmritaWNA) is a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary center for teaching and research at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Kollam campus. Launched in 2006, AmritaWNA began as a R&D center with the vision of promoting, developing, and applying the use of wireless technologies in a variety of fields that would benefit society.
Dr.Maneesha V Ramesh was ranked among the top 100 researchers in India by Careers360. Amrita Centre for Wireless Networks and Application, listed as one of the best research centers in social sciences category
App was one among the top five in the 2012 Create UNAOC Challenge.Sponsored by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) in collaboration with the MIT Education Arcade.App uses Augmented Reality and Participatory Sensing for Enhancing Cultural harmonies between different cultures.Cash Award: $5000.00Developed by Mr. Rahul Krishnan (AmritaWNA)

Amrita research paper titled Real-Time Monitoring and Detection of Heart Attack using Wireless Sensor Networks(link is external) was awarded the best paper at SENSORCOMM 2010, the 4th International Conference on Sensor Technologies and Applications
This paper deals with an optimal energy management scheme in Landslide detection system deployed in Kerala. Based on the meteorological, hydrological and soil parameters, sensors will be prioritized and selects appropriate sensors for event handling. This research work has developed effective algorithms for sensor prioritization, dynamic scheduling and adaptive sampling which makes the system energy efficient. The results of this research work shows that the life time of the network has been extended due to the implementation of this adaptive energy management schemes.
Dr. Maneesha V. Ramesh, Director of AmritaWNA, Anjitha Shanmughan and Rekha P. are co-authors of this research paper titled Context aware ad hoc network for mitigation of crowd disaster
When Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham deployed India’s first wireless sensor network system to detect rainfall induced landslides in Munnar, Kerala, the project garnered global attention.Now students all over India can learn more about wireless sensor networks and even test virtual deployments thanks to a new initiative to develop virtual labs based on these concepts.
