Live Projects Developed & Commercialization

Project Name Open IoT Connector
Funding Agency Ministry of MSME, GOI
Funded Amount 6.25 Lacks
Year 2015
Faculty Guide Mr. Updesh Jaiswal

Open IoT Connector is the project that was developed to make generic modules in an Open Source ERP system so that they can support any sensors connected to it. The initial aim is to capture the data for Manufacturing and Agriculture companies and then moving on to Health Care and later on to Transport.

We have been able to develop the modules on Odoo (earlier known as OpenERP) and Tryton and able to integrate them, using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B as Gateway, with a DHT11 Temperature and Humidity sensor. Next it included FitBit Wrist Band for Pulse Rate and Heart Rate Monitoring.

This helped in automating the Manufacturing, improve accuracy in reporting and then helping in better decision making. In Health care industry, the main aim is to promote the better monitoring the health of patients and get alerts in case of emergencies.

“SELF POWERED SMART DUSTBIN BASED ON GPRS and CLOUD CONNECTIVITY” Fulfilling the mission Of “Swach Bharat Abhiyaan” and concept of “FUTURE SMART CITY”

Technology/innovation Used in the Proposed Project

This project comes under the IoT (Internet Of things) category which is sub domain of Embedded System. It’s new concept and methodology, where machine talks to machine i.e smart sensors are connected to devices and with the help of Internet technology one device can communicate to other device. In today’s world, people so far are using Internet only for browsing purpose to explore the information and knowledge with the help website and portal, but now Internet is being used for enabling specific hardware system like home appliances/streetlight etc. As far as Application area is concerned this project and technology can be used in Proposed smart cities.

Novelty of Approach and End Usage- potential area of application in industry and market

After doing extensive market research and survey, we found huge scope of this product in coming days and specially this project can become the part of “SWACH BHARAT ABHIYAN”and “FUTURE SMART CITY” .So there is not any doubt for getting popular in the market once this would be launched in the market timely. There are the following people who could be the buyer of this product. i) Municipality ii) Schools iii)Hospitals iv)Apartments v)Mall/Cinema Hall and also it could become a part of FUTURE SMART CITY which has been proposed by Government recently.

Features of the product:

  • Increase Collection Efficiency through Route Optimization
