India had earned the dubious distinction of having more number of fatalities due to road accidents in the world. Road safety is emerging as a major social concern around the world especially in India. Drinking and driving is already a serious public health problem, which is one of the most significant problems. According to the statistics, India reports as many as 1.34 lakh fatalities in road accidents every year, a vast 70 per cent of them being due to drunken driving, The role of alcohol in traffic safety has produced more controversies than any other topic. Alcohol and driving don't mix, but still, many people love to drink and drive resulting in numerous road mishaps. A drunken driver is a potential murderer as he cannot perform his tasks without risks and endangers road safety. An intensive drive against drunken driving is the need of the hour to promote road safety. It is important to initiate necessary steps to achieve this by overcoming all the challenges. So we have designed an embedded system through which we can control drunken driving.

This project is to develop a wheelchair which is useful to the physically disabled person with their voice commands, hand movements or hand gesture recognition using MEMS technology and manual control via Android app. In MEMS, we have Tilt Register. When we change the direction, the tilt registers values are changed and that values are given to the microcontroller board (Arduino Uno). Depending on the direction of MEMS, Arduino control the wheelchair direction like LEFT, RIGHT, FORWARD and BACKWARD. In voice Recognition and manual control system , we use Bluetooth Module .To create a communication between Android mobile phone and Bluetooth module connected to Arduino , an android app has been formed which after successful connection with Bluetooth Module can send data from Android app to Arduino Board which control the wheelchair directions . The system has been designed and implemented in a cost effective way so that if our project is commercialized the needy users in developing countries will benefit from it.
This is a prototype device prepared for security purposes,made under the guidance of MOHD. TALHA. We have mainly used GSM 300 Module, PIR Sensor ,Cell Phone and ATMEGA 16 (or any other embedded system you like).

The Electroplating Station has been designed keeping in mind the requirements of Rail-Trolley System. We have subsidized the cost of manufacturing by implementing the support system which is indeed capable of upholding chassis and rail-trolley system.
The purpose of using the rails is the need for smooth movement of chassis carrying metal plate. The pulley so chosen that it is sufficiently strong to bear the load of metal piece to be electroplated. The supports are fixed at wooden base to provide tough structure to the whole station. All containers so chosen are fixed in separate compartments assigned to wooden base.
The motors so chosen that they sufficiently check the speed of chassis for its motion from 1 station to another. The motor used for driving blower are so chosen that they sufficiently wipe the extra droplets from metal piece. The motor used for Pulley is heavy as it directs the pulley to uphold the entire weight of metal piece. Also the wooden base is also sufficiently strong enough to bear the entire weight of all sub-stations. The fixed wooden base and rails also provides a means to carry the whole Electroplating Station at once, thus this whole arrangement is mobile from 1 place to another.
The solution implements Face detection to detect a human presence and accordingly turn on/ off the supply of the place under consideration. Thus, the electricity supply is maintained when people are present (i.e. when need of electricity is there, for example in classrooms, conference rooms/halls, houses, etc.). The proposed concept could also be used for monitoring and surveillance purposes also.

Stand alone data loggers are compact, reusable and portable. Here we have used 2GB SanDisk Micro SD card to act as an external memory device to store environmental data. Micro SD card supports SPI and so it is interfaced with MicroController Atmega 32. The data is transferred between the memory card and the host controller as data blocks in unit of 512 bytes. data is stored using FAT32 library by elm-chan. Various sensors like temperature sensor (LM35) Pressure Sensor (MPX4115), height sensor (GP2D12) etc are interfaced to MCU using ADC port. To give data according to real time we have used Real Time Clock (RTC) DS1307 . It is interfaced with MCU using I2C protocol. Data received by sensors are directed to MCU where it is processed and directed to micro SD Card with real date and time. Data is stored in CSV format so that we can read the date in Microsoft Excel.

Gesture recognition is a topic in computer science and language technology with the goal of interpreting human gestures via mathematical algorithms. Gestures can originate from any bodily motion or state but commonly originate from the face or hand. Gesture recognition can be seen as a way for computers to begin to understand human body language, thus building a richer bridge between machines and humans than primitive text user interfaces or even GUIs (graphical user interfaces), which still limit the majority of input to keyboard and mouse.
Gesture recognition enables humans to communicate with the machine (HMI) and interact naturally without any mechanical devices.
Here we are using a accelerometer in conjunction with a MCU and RF link to make a gesture controlled Robot.

Railway Signalling for Fog Mitigation / Poor Visibility
Team : Faraz Ahmad
A basic problem we have often came across or heard of is due to fog or other unfavorable weather conditions when the visibility ceases to zero and hence the railway signal becomes less visible to the rail operator and leading to a chance of either an accident or delay in the rail schedule. Both these situations cannot be a part of a flourishing railway organization. The proposed logic revolves around Fog Signaling Using Radio Frequency .

Team : Aftab Usmani, Haris siddiqui, Ali Shahzan
The present paper proposes a system design of Electrocardiogram (ECG) system to be used to acquire ECG signals and to enable a computer aided analysis of the same according to medical standards. The paper deals in detail the system design which is meant to provide a framework for developing useful embedded tools for easy, timely, cheap and accurate detection of heart abnormalities and cardiac murmurs which often go unnoticed in absence of trained physicians. The tagline of the system is its low cost that sets it apart from the peer in the market. A dedicated display unit for displaying the waveforms is bypassed, hence reducing the cost reasonably, instead the computer screen is used as the display unit of system, thus making it possible for further analysis and interpretation. LabVIEW is used for signal analysis, however dedicated software for the sole purpose can be developed in the future.
The system is based upon STBCFG01 IC which is a Switched mode single cell Li+ battery charger with OTG boost, voltage mode fuel gauge and LDO. The aim of the system is to make a low cost, robust and highly efficient backup extender for smartphones which will fit on the phone like a backcover. The back cover will have a battery of its own to provide the extended backup. A push switch is used to provide the control to the user for turning the system on and off and also for selecting between phone charging and backup battery charging. A LED based display section is integrated in the system to indicate the level of battery.

Team : Haroon Rahman, Aftab Ansari
Harvesting energy from renewable sources has been in demand formany years. We have thought to go in different way by utilizing energy from moving train. A stationary device is placed on the railway track to harvest energy from the moving train by using â€˜scotch yoke mechanismâ€™. As we all know that world is in search of alternative form of energy, whether it is in the form of wind, solar, hydro etc. There is a lot of energy in the universe which is not utilized or wasted .There is a great need of harvesting this energy from various sources. As we all know that trains consume lot of energy in the form of electricity or coal for their propulsion but making energy from the train is a challenging task. This project deal with the harvesting of energy from moving train by putting stationary device on the track. Energy is stored in the battery by the moving the motor through the mechanism and that energy can be used for applications such as wireless tracking, signalling and health of monitoring tracks etc.
