• Amrita engineering students built a formula car for SUPRA SAE, a global competition organized by the Society for Automotive Engineers (SAE). The contest was organized last year in Chennai, for the first time in India. The Amritapuri campus of Amrita University participated and the 23-member student team was the only one selected from Kerala.

  • The main objective of this project is to monitor and control the machining process during ultra-precision machining of titanium alloys. Using advanced signal processing techniques, the hidden information in the acoustic emission signal is extracted to predict the machining parameters with high levels of accuracy. The features from the signal are extracted and a set of predominant features is selected using dimensionality reduction techniques.

  • Comprehensive study of threats, their operational architecture, and adoption of threat modeling for their classification, form the foundation for development of secure technologies for cloud. Cloud platforms today assist providers in controlling and managing the customer VMs. In addition, they also help monitor and manage cloud performance.

  • Virtual Lab: Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is transforming the face of higher education and research, through a revolutionary new educational tool – virtual labs. The VALUE Initiative is a project dedicated to developing these virtual labs in various science and engineering disciplines. Virtual labs are media-rich online learning environments, which allow users to conduct physical laboratory experiments in a computer-simulated environment. This innovative new educational technique is enabling experimentation beyond the boundaries of traditional laboratories

  • Amrita University is creating comprehensive Mechanical Engineering Virtual Labs in the following areas: Mechanics of Solids, Wind Energy, Solar Thermal Energy, and Energy Storage. Each lab consists of 8 to 10 experiments. All experiments have a common web platform where students can view experiments via a web interface happening in real-time with a web-cam.

  • Aerospace Engineering Department at Amrita University, Coimbatore Campus, acquired a MiG-23, a fighter-aircraft, from the Indian Ministry of Defense. With this acquisition, students are able to better study the functions and workings of various subsystems of an aircraft. They have an opportunity to lay hands on a real-life aircraft and its subsystems; they get a first-hand experience. The majority of its subsystems are already in place. The Aerospace Engineering Department was started at Amrita in 2007 and over 190 students are currently enrolled in the Aerospace B-Tech program. The department has set up state-of-the-art labs, including an Aerodynamics Lab, Aerospace Structures Lab, Propulsion Lab, and Flight Dynamics and Control Lab.

  • Dispersion of nanocarbon forms and metal nanoparticles in a conducting polymer matrix facilitates coating of such materials. Different nanocarbon materials such as single walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT), double walled carbon nanotube (DWCNT), multi walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT), and graphene are being synthesized using Radio Frequency (RF) Catalytic Chemical Vapor Deposition (CCVD).

  • 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.
