VadictInnovathon 2019 was a IOT and computer programming competition which involved all engineering colleges with a reach to approximately 10-15 teams with 3-5 members in each team. It was a plan to challenge the students to think out-of-box and offer innovative solutions for smarter applications which will help address major real time problems in our Vadodara city.
This was first effort by Vadict to involve young students in proposing solutions for problems faced in day-to-day functioning. This led the students to think out-of-box and provide innovative, disruptive and sustainable solutions, which could be pursued after the Hackathon for further refining of solutions.
Two teams from ITM Vocational University secured 1st and 4th Position in Vadict Innovathon 2019.
Following students were awarded prize and certificate in the Innovation by Hackathon Vadict:
Name Department Team Leader(1st Winner) Jeet Patel (4th Year CSE) Team Member(1st Winner) Sarthak Joshi (4th Year CSE) Team Leader (4th winner) Tarun Maheshvari (4th Year EEE)
Problem Statement (Team: Default):
Write a program/algorithm for object detection in office.
Idea/Solution and Prototype:
The basic idea for Embedded based Application.
We used Beaglebone on our hardware side developed by Texas Instrument.
We used Python, OpenCV, Retina Datasets on our software side.
PROJECT EXHIBITION was organized by the Department of Engineering, on 16th September 2019.
All engineering B.TECH & INT.B.TECH students are participation of this exhibition.
Major objective of organizing this exhibition was to provide the platform and unleash the potential of the students by showcasing their innovative projects developed in the Final Year either as Industry Defined Problem or User Defined Problem and provide an opportunity for the students to demonstrate their learning experience.
The outcome of the PROJECT EXHIBITION was that students were able to show their project at higher level and the process boosted their confidence.
Simultaneously, Inspirational videos were shown for 1st year students of their upcoming career.
The event started with full fledge with more than 185+ students and 40+ Project teams. Our college experienced a lot of professionalism in presentation, communication skills and ideology toward better solution of different problem.
Projects exhibited were mainly explored in the broad areas of Robotics, Application of renewable energy, Wireless power transfer, Sensors, Micro-controllers, embedded systems, IOT and many more. The project exhibition showcased many interesting concepts and ideas which can be further developed to give better solution for engineering problems and can be developed further as a product.
Projects made by B.Tech and Integrated B.Tech students. They were excited to show their skills, interest and projects to judges and faculties.
The objectives of Project Exhibition 2019:• To demonstrate personal abilities and skills required to realize and present an extended idea in Interdisciplinary areas. • To analyze hardware software co design concepts to build real time system. • To compare and contrast similar existing products and highlight the benefits.
On successful completion of the Project exhibition, the students will be able to:
• Extend their learning experience by designing projects and providing them with opportunities to enhance their CV and employability. • Demonstrate a sound technical knowledge of their selected project topic. • Undertake problem identification, formulation and solution. • Design engineering solutions for complex problems utilizing a systems approach. • Communicate with engineers and the community at large in written and oral forms. • Demonstrate the knowledge skills and attitude of a professional engineers.
We also thank all faculty and staff of respective department for their active involvement and support.
