1. Pratham, IIT Bombay:- The IIT Bombay Student Satellite Project is a landmark project taken up by IIT Bombay students. The objective of this project is to make IIT Bombay a respected centre for advancement in Satellite and Space Technology in the world . These Satellites could be test-beds for new technology that is being developed in the institute and also a method for space qualification. ‘Pratham’ is the first satellite under this project. The plan is to build a fully functional microsatellite in less than three years which would then be launched by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). This is entirely a student initiative with mentorship provided by ISRO scientists and IIT Bombay Faculty. The satellite will fit in a 30*30*30 cm cube and will weigh less than 15 kg.

2. 3d printer:- 3D printing or Additive manufacturing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using anadditive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. 3D printing is also considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling.
A 3D printer is a limited type of industrial robot that is capable of carrying out an additive process under computer control.

3. Humanoid (Biped):- Bipedalism is a form of terrestrial locomotion where an organism moves by means of its two rear limbs, or legs. An animal or machine that usually moves in abipedal manner is known as a biped , meaning “two feet” (from the Latin bi for “two” and ped for “foot”). Types of bipedal movement include walking,running, or hopping, on two appendages

4. Jun Fujiwara, Tama Art University, Japan:-
Sound Bottle is a music creation device like no other. Designed by a Jun Fujiwara at Japan’s Tama Art University, it’s a bottle-shaped device that captures and plays back sounds.

The Re: Sound Bottle is the audio equivalent of running around in a field in the summer collecting fireflies in a jar. The bottle is simple in its usage but absurdly complex in its design which relies heavily on software to handle the recording, storing, and playback of audio tracks. To use it you simply uncork the device and if sound is present it immediately snaps into recording mode. As you record more individual sounds, an audio database is formed and tracks are automatically selected to create rhythmic tracks, essentially like a miniature robot DJ in a jar. To listen, you again uncork the top and wait for your personal soundtrack to play. The project, which received a judge’s prize at the 2012 Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Awards last year, cleverly turns the complex, multipart process of digital music production into a simple analog act.

The device is about getting people to interact with the world around them in novel ways, look at things differently and experience music in a new way. It’s also an incredibly social tool, with spectators seeing it in action eager to join in with the sound experimentations.

10. Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV, DTU):-

DTU AUV represents a technological dream achieved by a team of undergraduate Delhi Technological University (formerly Delhi College of Engineering) students to develop an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle of industrial standards. It tests its progress against the world by participating in reputed RoboSub competition organised by AUVSI every year in San Diego, USA.

The vehicle has been designed by fusion of research work in the field of mechanical engineering, electronics , instrumentation, image processing and acoustics . It is a submersible, untethered robot that is capable of performing shallow water complex tasks without aid from human operators. This project showcases the viability of this kind of robot not only as a research test bed, but also as a useful platform for shallow water applications. It has been designed with a view to achieve maximum operational standards, minimal payload and power requirements and high level of modularity .

The team is composed of a undergraduate students from various branches headed by their Faculty Advisor Prof. R.K.Sinha . Ever since its inception , the team has been collaborating intensively with local, national and international resources. The team contested till Semifinals of AUVSI’s RoboSub competition held at SSC Transdec, San Diego in the year 2011 .

The team is developing it’s 5th Generation AUV with a completely new mechanical design and improved electronics and software. Team is gearing up to gain its best ever rank at RoboSub 2013 to be held in San Diego, USA during July 2013.

BITS Pilani K.K. Birla Research Exhibits:

It acts as a platform to showcase the diversity of R&D activities in BITS Pilani K.K. Birla Goa Campus and highlight fundamental research in BITS Pilani, K.K. Birla Goa Campus. It also aims to motivate young minds to take up a career in research, and to serve as a platform for exchange of knowledge.

It aims to highlight the diverse contributions of BITS Pilani in the fields of healthcare, energy, defence, wireless communication, information technology and material sciences.
