Major Projects undertaken

    An online election platform developed exclusively for the conduct of staff elections of University Technology MARA, (UiTM), Malaysia. Even though it was developed for UiTM, it can act as a web-based election platform for conducting online elections in any
    organisation – ranging from educational institutions to businesses establishments. This application simplifies the election procedure and is fast, reliable and convenient. The major advantage of this product is that it can be customised easily to conduct elections within any organisation. This platform is cost-effective and saves effort and time required to set up manual election and it requires minimal resources for functioning too.
  • Digital Document Repository:
    DDR is a digital library that stores information about different types of orders / circulars etc issued by UGC, MHRD, HED, Calicut University, etc. It, thus, provides a single-window search facility to access the digital contents under a single umbrella. Searches can be personalised based on requirement and will operate in a 24×7 integrated environment to suit user’s requirements. This work saves phenomenal amount of time that might have been spent hunting for Government and Departmental orders and locating the pertinent rules. The arrangement of the rules under specific heads makes navigation through the maze of rules and orders a very easy task. This Digital repository will make the seemingly obscure provisions easily accessible to administrators and all the relevant stakeholders and thus promote demystification and transparency; which in turn will promote good governance.
    Video lectures were one among the many means of imparting knowledge in the pre-pandemic times. However, with the spread of COVID-19 it became the norm. With the rise in demand for video lectures, many produced and uploaded video lectures in YouTube and online teaching sites. To differentiate the best videos from the mediocre become a Herculean task. To resolve this menace, Knowledge graphs was constructed and it offers a way to streamline workflows, automate responses and scale intelligent decisions. By representing the video lecture as a graph, the system will be able to graphically represent the content and the knowledge. Knowledge Graph thus obtained from these video lectures will become a knowledge cloud that in turn can be used for developing various intelligent applications like domain specific chat-bots, recommender engines and so on.
    In this project, a self-configuring wireless network was configured which enables the Internet to reach out into the physical objects-system to analyses the real-time electrical energy consumption. Power consumption of each device is read through MQTT protocol;
    an application layer protocol which uses publish/subscribe system to communicate and future consumption is predicted using ARIMA model. The proposed system predicts the future consumption based on previous data which use both the concepts of IoT and data prediction analysis and thus making it an efficient power consumption analysis system.
  • Line Follower Robot:
    Majority of transportations, across the globe are controlled manually. However, automating the circuits where the routes are predefined will reduce the traffic congestion and thus improving the public transport efficiency. To automate, static paths are collected upfront and are represented as a graph, for easy implementation. A novel version of state-of-art self-operating line follower robot (LFR) was developed and its optimal path from source to destination is computed. In this work, the optimal path is computed using Floyd-Warshall algorithm – one of the most efficient all pair shortest path algorithm, to have worst case running time of Θ (n 3 ). All computations relating to the graph and Floyd-Warshall algorithm were performed on a remote android device and only the primitive actions were sent to the robot as bluetooth signals and thus reducing the payload. Once received, robot decodes these signals and performs corresponding action, thus completing the task optimally. A manual mode was also incorporated to avoid the unforeseen difficulties at the time of implementation.
    S-tracker is a semester management system developed exclusively for St. Thomas College (Autonomous), Thrissur. With S-tracker at their disposal, teaching fraternity could judiciously use their precious time in moulding future generations of the nation. Besides examination reform, major objectives of semesterisation were automated so as to improve the quality of education and introduction of flexibility in the transaction of curriculum. By achieving the above envisioned goals, the academic and administrative burden of the teachers were eased by manifold.
