Research Lab - Engineering Design

Engineering design is the method that engineers use to identify and solve problems. It has been described and mapped out in many ways. This powerful approach to problem solving is flexible enough to work in almost any situation. Engineers learn important information about both the problem and possible solutions at each step or phase of the process. This process is often done in small teams that include people with different kinds of knowledge and experience. Various stages of the design process can involve a significant amount of time spent on locating information and research. Consideration should be given to the existing applicable literature, problems and successes associated with existing solutions, costs, and marketplace needs. The source of information should be relevant, including existing solutions. Reverse engineering can be an effective technique if other solutions are available on the market.

Food Feeding Robot For Physically Challenged Persons

Student Name: Sivanadham, Mechanical
Mentor: Prof. N.Natarajan, Associate Professor

A three degrees of freedom robot designed to feed the food for aged and physically challenged persons (Specially for handless persons, Soldiers loss their hands in war)

A simple binary controller used to the motors used in the robots.

Leg operated switches are used.

The end effector of the robot designed for handle the spoon and water cans.

The binary switches pressed by leg in an sequence order the robot movement is achieved

Based on the practice of the user the robot scope the food from plate and feed to the user.

Research Lab - Robotic Lab

Robotics lab focuses on interdisciplinary research applied to the state of the art autonomous intelligent robotics and human-robot. It is a unique collaboration that harnesses the collective strengths of its university partners, and brings together the best expertise from industry to the academic community. It steers the students in robotic and automation applications and also allows experimentation with several robots of various sizes and capabilities.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is made between Vinayaka Mission’s Kirupananda Variyar Engineering College, Salem and Frontline Electronics, Salem to initiate, undertake, and execute research and development activities connected with Robotics, Embedded System Design, VLSI, Digital Signal Processing areas for the benefit of staff members and the student. The proposed activities are planned to be conducted within the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering.

National Level Project Competition and Paper Presentation for Engineering and Polytechnic Students -“INOVOTECH’13”

At VMKV Engineering College, Salem, the National Level Project Competition and Paper Presentation for Engineering and Polytechnic Students -“INOVOTECH’13” has been conducted at our college on 10th April 2013 with grandeur and fanfare. The Welcome address was delivered by Dr.P.Senguttuvan, Vice Principal of the College. Dr.A.Nagappan, Principal of the College, presided over the function. In his presidential address he explained the importance of this event and advised the students to update their knowledge with available resources. He traced his association with IEEE Madras Section and IEEE Aerospace and Electronic System Society. In view of our meticulous arrangement and close follow up as many as 300 innovative projects were displayed and 150 Papers were presented by students of Engineering and Polytechnic Institutions across the Nation. The competition provided a much needed platform for young students to exhibit their creative and innovative ideas and talents. In fact it has facilitated a space to transform their dreams into reality.

The Chief Guest of the function was Dr.H.V.Batra, Director, Defence Food Research Laboratory, Mysore (Unit of DRDO, Government of India), and guests of honour were Major V.V.Chandrasekharan, Secretary, IEEE, Madras Section & Secretary, IEEE, India Council and Dr.K.Manivannan, Secretary, ISTE, Tamilnadu & Pondicherry Section. The chief Guest Dr.H.V.Batra and dignitaries visited each and every project and appreciated the creative talents of the students.
