• It is seen that therapies for diabetes and heart disease affects liver and these diseases are increasing in prevalence especially in developing countries. The liver metabolises and detoxifies drugs and substances that are harmful to the body as well as produces blood clotting factors, proteins, and enzymes and helps maintain hormone balances, and stores vitamins and minerals.

  • A method that is specific and reliable for detecting cancers at early stages and at an affordable cost is of utmost importance as it can function as a first-line guidance. Due to the high prevalence of breast, cervical and ovarian cancer in Indian women our aim is to develop a device that can detect these three cancer’s at an early stage.

  • Wayfinding can be defined as spatial problem solving. It is knowing where you are in a building or an environment, knowing where your desired location is, and knowing how to get there from your present location. Wayfinding is particularly important in complex built environments such as urban centers, healthcare and educational campuses, and transportation facilities. As architectural environments become more complicated, people need visual cues such as maps, directions, and symbols to help guide them to their destinations. In indoor, GPS doesn’t seems to work indoors as the satellite links are blocked or unreliable inside buildings. Indoor navigation and wayfinding is important as it may be used to find a shop in a shopping mall or locations in a hospital.

  • Stairs of different sizes and shapes and variety of designs are available in various households. We always find odd to clean the stair case steps and cleaning several steps in multistoried buildings is in itself a task. Using robots for cleaning surface, glass, rooms etc. are not new and are in the field of research for more than a decade. But when it comes to stair case cleaning, we see that the research area is only few years old. The main reason is the enormous difference is design mechanism when it comes to vertical climbing robots compared to the robots that move over surface. These robots function in 3-D space where as surface cleaning robots function in 2-D space which is comparatively easier to design and implement compared to the 3-D space robots. Our 'ClePa' is designed to operate in 3-D space  with several features including: manual control, semi-autonomous and fully-autonomous control, crawler based mobility mechanism, stationary and dynamic obstacle detection and avoidance and threshold detection.

  • This project investigates algorithms to capture the intelligence about the faults, from a small working model of the actual system, which can be used to scale up the fault models to the high end system. The ideas developed in the project can be used effectively to learn the intelligence about the faults without working with the high end systems, and thereby making modeling the faults a less expensive process.

  • Self-E is an advanced wheelchair system capable of autonomous navigation at a low cost and having advanced technology. It was created to serve the people with disabilities for walking. It can be also used in the for the travelling and transport of the old age and the patients in hospital and other places.

  • In this paper, a system for automobiles to analyze and assess the cause for an accident and to report the same to the department concerned has been proposed. The main motive of this system is to ensure that insurance can be claimed. When accident occurs, face of the person in the vehicle hit, has two views namely frontal view and profile view.
