Short Term Training Program on Recent trends in Android Applications Development and Advancements in Brain Machine Technology
Electronics and Communication Department of V.V.P. Engineering College, Rajkot had organized STTP on “Recent trends in Android Applications Development and Advancements in Brain Machine Technology” from 5th to 9th January 2015.
Major highlights of this STTP were:
- Real time hardware demonstration of Brain Machine Technology
- Commitment of development of Android Applications by the participants was fulfilled
- Developed Android Application was uploaded on Google Play Store during the days of STTP
- Each Registered Participant received an Android based Smart Phone with dual front/back camera, Power Bank, TATA DOCOMO SIM Card credited with 3G Data Pack and Calling Balance as complimentary gifts

In Inauguration Function, the Enlightening of Lamp (Wireless Deep Prgatya) was done using Robotics, Bluetooth technology and Android Mobile App. The chief guests have clicked on Mobile Android App and using wireless technology there was a enlightening of lamp.
A live demo of Brain Machine Technology was given by Mr. Mohit Vora, an expert from a premier Industry during STTP.
As EC Department of VVP Engineering College, Rajkot is famous for Wireless Deep Pragatya using various technologies, this time EC Department demonstrates Wireless Deep Pragatya with add on feature of Brain Machine Technology.
EC Department and Mr. Mohit Vora, an industrial expert invited for STTP, made the Lamp enlightening (Wireless Deep Pragatya) possible by detecting the thoughts in the mind of a person who wears the brain mapping device. The person wearing the brain sensor, when thinks, the brain sensor accept the input from the thought, process it and sends appropriate Bluetooth signal to receiver through embedded system. The specialized hardware receiver consist of heat sensing material and capable to receive Bluetooth signal to enlighten the lamp (Wireless Deep Pragatya). This Wireless Deep Pragatya had been the eye catching highlight of the Inaugural function.
Media team specially visited the EC department to see the live demonstration of Brain Machine Technology. They were highly impressed by the demonstration and appreciated it greatly.
STTP got wide media coverage by leading news papers like Gujarat Samachar, Divya Bhaskar, Sandesh, etc
Application Developed During STTP
Various applications had been developed by the participants during the STTP which are described as below which may prove indeed helpful to the society:
- Drive Safe
- This application can be used by a person driving a vehicle for his/her safety.
- In order to avoid an accident, whenever the driver receives and SMS, it is automatically converted into equivalent speech signal and hence the person can concentrate on his/her driving instead of reading the SMS.
- Location tracker for stolen mobile
- This application is used to find the location of stolen mobile.
- Whenever someone inserts a new SIM card in the stolen mobile, the app will automatically sent SMS to the predefined number (without permission/knowledge of new user) containing following information (without the help of GPS) :-
- 15 digit SIM number of new SIM
- IMEI number of stolen mobile
- And most importantly, information about the signal tower which indicates the mobile location at that time
- Application hider
This application can hide any applications from the application menu and hence that particular application will not be seen by others.
Thus it is a security based application.
- Wake up Buddy
This application can be used by a person who is sleeping with mobile in silent mode. By just sending a message to him/her mobile, the silent mobile phone give a call to buddy and simultaneously activate speaker phone. Hence one can wake up from even deep sleep.
