• The project Advancing Integrated Wireless Sensor Networks for Real-time Monitoring and Detection of Disasters is to develop a fully functional landslide monitoring and detection system using emerging wireless sensor network technology with enhanced geological DEPs at an active landslide site in the North - Eastern region of India. 

  • Researchers at the AmritaWNA in consultation with doctors at the Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS) designed a low-cost, low-power wearable ECG-monitoring device called Amrita Spandanam, which is a wearable wireless ECG monitoring framework that utilizes mobile phones and web browsers for monitoring cardiac patients who are in remote areas. The device can be worn either as a necklace or as a belt and continuously monitors and analyzes a patient’s ECG. 

  • This project is to develop and deploy an integrated real-time landslide monitoring and detection system using emerging wireless sensor network technology. The landslide monitoring and detection system will be used for the prediction of rainfall-induced landslides, in three landslide prone areas in the Himalayas, India.

  • This research contributed to the deployment of world’s first wireless sensor network for landslide detection. This research was initially part of WINSOC project, funded by the European Commission under FP6 program. The Government of India plans to deploy this system in all landslide prone areas of India, furthering three projects with DeitY, DST, and MoES.

  • Metropolitan cities are prone to flash floods after heavy rains. Insufficient or damaged drainage capacity is a common cause apart from swollen rivers and storm surges. Providing timely and sufficient help to people is a daunting task for authorities, mainly due to the lack of accurate, real-time information about damages to people’s lives and property.

  • India’s first landslide laboratory setup, Funding Agency: European commission,  Department of Information Technology (DIT) & Amrita University, Laboratory Setup in 2008, Lab serves as a testbed for development and validation of the systems deployed in the landslide prone areas, such as the wireless sensor nodes, signal conditioning circuits, power circuits, sensors and others.


  • Microgrid is a  local energy system consisting of distributed energy sources storage and loads capable of operating in parallel with or independently from the main electricity grid.

  • MICRONet evaluates the technological options to provide an effective and reliable way for the fishermen to communicate amongst themselves and with the shore during emergencies and other times using text/email  messages and/or voice calls.

  • The project proposes to enhance the technology used, looks to provide a more comprehensive system, and expand the knowledge of landslides and their detection. This project deals with enhancing and deploying integrated landslide monitoring and detection systems using the emerging wireless sensor network technology to predict rainfall induced landslides in landslide-prone areas of India.

  • This proposal seeks to Architect, Design, Develop and deploy a Cross-functional, Multi-Media, Multi-Channel, High Definition, Interactive, Immersive,  Adaptive Classroom experience– a University without walls and borders, that effectively uses the high bandwidth, low latency worldwide network provided by the NKN to enable students attend classes of higher education at eminent national and international universities. The remote classroom solutions today do not provide a really immersive environment to captivate and motivate the students. The students tend to get tired after short sessions. By providing a really interactive and immersive experience, we hope to open up a totally new paradigm in remote classrooms and discussion rooms.

  • The project aims at design and development of affordable sensor system that could be integrated as an inexpensive patient monitoring systems,  capable of monitoring  multiple vital physiological parameters like BP(Blood Pressure), SpO2(Blood Oxygen) and Blood Glucose and the system is capable of giving proper warning at abnormal values.

  • As wireless sensor networks (WSN) are emerging worldwide, the lack of e-learning facilities degrades the availability and usage of WSN applications, mainly in universities. The Remote Triggered Wireless Sensor Network Lab aims in providing an easy, efficient, interactive and user friendly environment to the students, researchers etc., which can trigger their inquisitiveness and give them the equipments and materials needed for the lab experiments which are shared to them in a virtual manner wherein they can conduct the experiments online and observe the outputs as in a real lab through an effective visualisation tool.

  • The project SANSKAR - An Android App that Promotes Harmony Through Acceptance is to develop and deploy an android app that promotes harmony through acceptance. The project is funded by United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC).

  • Soc & Embedded System Design Environment and its Applications to Wireless and Security

    • High level objective: Develop next generation VLSI/ SoCs and Testbeds
    • Leverage Amrita University's expertise on Wireless Network, Cyber Security and Analog Design
    • Utilize University of Tokyo's expertise on Algorithms and Programmable hardware
  • Stabiliz-E is the result of immense need to move from the traditional, centralized, static energy grid towards a decentralized and dynamic grid, which gives more freedom to producers, distributes and consumers in energy sector.

  • WINSOC is a European Commission funded collaborative research project comprised of 11 academic research institutes and industry partners based in India and Europe. This project developed a novel method of wireless sensor network that mimics biological systems. 

  • Both India and Brazil have a major need to improve their education, health, and support available during disasters, especially in areas with limited connectivity. The goal of this project is to use wireless communication networks for developing enhance healthcare system impart education, build cooperation,promote collaboration, and facilitate innovation among Indian and Brazilian students, professionals, and researchers.
