Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham Develops Self-driving Wheelchair

Three final-year B.Tech students of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham led by their professor Dr. Rajesh Kannan Megalingam, Assistant Professor, Electronics and Communication, Amrita School of Engineering, Amritapuri, have developed a self-driving wheelchair that can safely take a user from one point to another by navigating its own path and avoiding obstacles on the way. Called Self-E, the revolutionary wheelchair uses a Robotic Operating System (ROS) for autonomous navigation. It creates a map of the surrounding space, along with static and dynamic obstacles, using a laser sensor and displays it through a smartphone app. The user can then touch any point on the generated map, and the wheelchair will drive to that place automatically without user intervention.

Amrita Students Work to Resolve India’s Governance Issues at Smart India Hackathon

A team of six third-year students from the School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore campus, named 'Cyber Sena', won the top award at the Smart India Hackathon 2018, for developing a secure system for the Ministry of Defence, Government of India. Their app enables easy transfer of data from one network to another through trusted sources. The team announced that they will soon meet the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) to discuss the security system implementation. The team consists of ethical hacking enthusiasts who aim to provide secured external USB devices and prevent unauthorized access to the data copied on it.
