HITS Receives Covid Support from TUAS

Taking cognizance of the severe pandemic situation in India, the faculty of Trier University of Applied Sciences, Germany with whom Hindustan Institute of Technology and Science is enjoying a partnership through DAAD since 2018, has come forward to donate Rs 50 Lakhs worth equipment and kits such as Oximeters, Oxygen Concentrators, Medical FFP Masks and Protection Kits which were distributed to the deserving covid affected communities near Padur village where the institution is located. Trier University got support from various organisations such as C V Association of Catholic Student fraternities, Rotary Club, General German Automobile Association, Association of German Engineers and R. Stahl for the logistics of the equipment and other requirements. HITS and Trier University have signed an MOU in late 2018, following which the partnership got a joint Project titled “German – Indian R&D Study on Innovative Concepts for Traffic Infrastructure, Driver Assistance and Vehicle Safety” funded by DAAD (German Academic Exchange Programme) in 2020. As a part of the Project, Students and Faculty from Trier University of Applied Sciences visited HITS and spent more than a week carrying out studies on road safety. Similarly, students and faculty from HITS went to Germany and spent almost a month carrying out studies on various aspects of driver assistance, road infrastructure and vehicle safety. During this visit, the then Vice Chancellor and the Director, HITS signed an MOU with Trier University of Applied Sciences (TUAS) Germany for a Dual Master Degree Programme on “International Material Flow Management” in the presence of Dr. Griese, State Secretary, Ministry of Education, Germany on 22 October 2019.

Highbrows @ Hindustan Innovation Patents

International Patents

Patentees:

Title: “An IOT Based Intelligent Driver Assistance System”. About the Patent: Road accidents occur due to various reasons, but most prominent of all is the blind spot accidents which occur when the driver loses sight while their line of sight is blocked by one of the components of the vehicle. The blind spots are sometimes ‘internal’ wherein some specific positions such as over the right or left shoulder of the driver turns blind; or sometimes ‘external’ due to the design and construction of roads such as hairpin bends and roundabouts. Either way, the driver loses complete visibility of the incoming object which increases the odds of a severe collision causing loss of life and property. Mr. Ashok Verghese Director, HITS

Dr. T. Sudalai Muthu Associate Professor, Dept. of CSE. The presented system is driver assisting system that is powered by Internet-of-things and is installable in the vehicle as well as at the blind-spot on the road, and the fusion of both proceeds to provide enough information for the driver as he approaches the blind spot and passes it with caution. It provides an advanced overtaking assistance system comprising of short-range and long-range Radar Sensors that is part of the Electronic Control System that senses incoming traffic from the blind spot. The advanced overtaking assistance system is enabled with the cameras mounted on both the side mirrors in forward direction and a display device on the front console to have a clear vision of the right and left side while travelling on road with the option of switching. The assisting system can also be fixed on both the sides of the road and equipped with a solar powered IOT based camera and radar sensors to sense the traffic density in the field of interest area at the risky corners or hairpin bends. The invention is designed to work both as a standalone system that even in cases of poor network caused due to extreme weather conditions as the radars continue to detect, locate and track objects and continue to feed the information to the base station which transmits the information to the vehicles.

Title: “A Convolutional Neural Network-Based Sustainable Method for Classification of Endometriosis Laparoscopic Images” Patentees: About the Patent: The Endometriosis disorder is a common reproductive disorder in women. An average of 20% women suffer from it across the globe. The Endometriosis is a tissue like structure which usually lies at the inner and outer part of the uterus. It affects parts including uterus, ovary, peritoneum, and gall bladder. The identification endometriosis at the initial stage is a challenging diagnosis mainly due to the lack of identification of methods of the scanned images.

Dr. T. Sudalai Muthu Associate Professor, Dept. of CSE.

Ms. Visalaxi, Research Scholar, Dept. of CSE

“A Convolutional Neural Network-Based Sustainable Method for Classification of Endometriosis Laparoscopic Images” invention proposes a deep learning-based endometriosis identification approach to identify the endometriosis of the scanned images. The Convolution Neural network (CNN) is used for training and prediction, as well to classify whether it is endometriosis or not. The invented research work has been experimented with 4,000 scanned images and has yielded 80.02% accuracy.

Title: “Air Pollution Monitoring System using Internet of Vehicles and Pollution Sensors” Patentees: About the Patent: Air contamination has become a major issue in metro cities and vast urban regions all through the globe. Transportation is perceived as a significant source of air contamination in numerous urban areas, particularly in developing nations. This patent disclosure relates to an air pollution monitoring system using Internet of Vehicles (IoV) and pollution sensors that generates progressive alerts by forecasting the pollution level in a city. Every vehicle can monitor the pollution level on a unified platform, thereby optimizing the resources required with existing systems at the vehicle level. The Dr. AL.Vallikannu Assoc. Prof. & Head, ECE

Dr. T. Sudalai Muthu Associate Professor, Dept. of CSE.

Ms. V. Kanpur Rani Asst. Prof. EEE

proposed intelligence system consists of a sensors module, a Wireless Communication module with Cloud, and Processing Module with Database. Apart from this to detect faults in the products, sensors and to optimize from manufacturers point, IoV provides the connection. The accuracy is measured on-trend prediction against pre-defined threshold values and the experimentation yielded the better performance with an accuracy of 99% to generate alert for True-case.

Innovation Patents

National Patent

Title: “Cold-formed Steel Beam with Encased Braced Web for Earthquake Resistant Constructions”. Patentees: About the Patent: The construction industry is looking out for materials and structural members that are economical and state-of-the art. This invention demonstrates a new beam component made with Cold-Formed Steel (CFS), HYSD bars and Green Concrete suitable for earthquake resistant constructions. Economical design of structural steel beams normally requires thin webs. But if the web is extremely thin the problem of plate buckling may arise. Thus, the newly developed CFS beam is provided with HYSD rebars as Diagonal bracings in the web to achieve adequate out-of-plane stiffness and shear buckling resistance and thereby enhancing load carrying capacity of the beam. As the CFS beams with diagonal bracing showed brittle failure, the web was encased with High Volume fly-ash concrete which is a green material for composite action. Hence the newly developed beam not only Dr. Joanna P.S Prof., Civil Engg.

Mr. Samuel J Asst. Prof., Civil Engg

has higher moment capacity, but also possess good ductility which is a desirable property in earthquake-resistant structures because it provides early warning of any impending failure and also facilitates re-distribution of stress.

Consultancy Project A project titled "Development of Autonomous Heterogeneous Robotic Swarm Simulator for Faster Disaster Reconnaissance and Mitigation", developed by the Centre for Automation and Robotics (ANRO), and submitted to Royal Academy of Engineering, UK under – TSP (Transforming systems through partnership) India scheme has been awarded a Research Grant of Rs 53.67 Lakh for a period of 2 years.
