Analog Devices felicitates winners of Anveshan 2016-17 University Design Fellowship

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras was announced as the winning team of its University Design Fellowship Programme, Anveshan 2016-17 by Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI). The winning team project was based on Internet of Things (IoT) named as IoT Based Virtual Physiotherapy with Biofeedback.

Internet of Things (IoT)

Anveshan's focus this year was on the Internet of Things (IoT) applications, working towards building a truly connected world that is intelligent and efficient. This also aligns with Analog Devices focus to solve Internet of Things (IoT) challenges in applications where outcomes really matter, enabled by sensing and measuring capabilities which deliver more accurate, reliable, and complete data.

This edition of Anveshan provided a platform to create and experiment with innovative IoT applications and develop a prototype from Sensor to Cloud. Developing breakthrough concepts and algorithms for IoT use-cases and experimenting with IoT platforms with analytics running on the edge, fog or cloud was an integral part of Anveshan 2016-17.

The fellowship also witnessed a record number of 489 registrations from all over India. This included participants from the student community, industry professionals, players from the IoT segment, start-up founders and alumni, hobbyists and would-be-entrepreneurs.

Based on the registrations, the selected projects were executed on similar lines as in the industry for a period of nine months, with regular architecture reviews, component selection reviews, interim deadlines and finally a complete presentation and demonstration of the prototype. The mentorship from Analog Devices offers distinct advantage for the student community, helping them to review the system-level architecture, real-world technical challenges and the much-needed guidance and support in completing the project on time.

Winning project

The winning project this year enables physiotherapists to provide effective care to patients virtually anywhere. The patient's movement is assessed through a system which includes body-worn sensor solution from Analog Devices and RGB-D camera. The camera will also provide a live video feed of the patient's movement to the physiotherapist.

The framework of the project includes an interactive 3D game for the patient to play which helps the patient feel motivated and provides the necessary information over the cloud for the physiotherapist to monitor the patient's progress from anywhere.

Prize winners

Felicitated by Dr. Karthik Sankaran, Former General Manager (IoT Platform Group), Analog Devices, the winning team from IIT-Madras, represented by Renganathan B S, Dhinesh R, Payal Mohapatra, Sharath M.S. received a cash prize of INR 2,50,000, and demonstrated their solution pitch to industry stalwarts at the awards ceremony

The second prize was won by Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Tamil Nadu for their project on Smarter Air

The third prize was shared by National Institute of Technology Hamirpur, Himachal Pradesh for Smart Garbage Monitoring System and Zakir Husain College of Engineering and Technology, Uttar Pradesh for Low Cost Visual Sensor Node for Surveillance Applications.

"We have seen many innovative products designed at Anveshan, over the years," said Ashok Balivada, Director of Engineering, ADI.

"This year was an eye opener for IoT solutions and I was impressed by the range of ideas in the IoT space presented by the different university students and professionals. When we start talking about bigger projects that involve the government in the areas of smart cities, digital india, and smart grid campaigns etc, these grassroots projects are critical in shaping the future of IoT in India."

Main advantage

"The main advantage of competing in such a fellowship programme is that we can have a direct interaction with the experts from the industry. We were fortunate enough to have a mentor directly from ADI. Anveshan gave us an opportunity to work together as a team and helped us resolve conflicts that arise during the execution of the project. Overall it was a great learning experience and a fun-filled journey", he added.
