Breathalyzer Helmet - gets three birds with one stone. First, it requires the helmet to be put on and the buckle to be clipped, or the rider will not be able to start the bike. Next, it analyses breath for alcohol, and depending on the level of alcohol content, either starts or stops the bike. The helmet is also fitted with a Bluetooth Encryption System that can alert the owner if the bike has been stolen. All this is economical, and easily integrated into the bike.
Study India - chip developed to mark the attendance and save the time of professors as well as student.
Driverless Bicycle - for the disabled. An ordinary cycle transformed into a hybrid driverless bicycle that works partly on electricity for people who have physical disabilities such as blindness or amputated limbs. Its features include live tracking and wireless connectivity.
Reusable Piezo Sensor - this is used in bridges to find the corrosion rate and severity of corrosion damage.
It was an informative, interesting and a successful visit which gave the students an insight to develop innovative project for society in affordable cost.
