EC Students outshine in Various Events at National level

Achievements of 5th EC students Milin Parekh & Vivek Shah at NATIONAL LEVEL HACKATHON


Around 17070 online ideas were submitted in this portal and only 455 ideas were selected for further round those were then asked to submit the video explanation of their project so Milin provided them with it, and further only 200 student received the email about the semifinals at pune.

So Milin and his guide Dr. Dipesh Kamdar sat to decide the strategy to be followed at this place so they discussed about the explanation strategy about the robot they had made .

The project to be submitted had to be regarding the Iot theme further classified into different tracks ie: Smart home automation, smart driving experience ,smart wearables, Smart medical assistance.

His project was based on the smart driving experience and they had made a demo model of robotic car which depicts the fancy features which a smart car has.

Then he was asked to bring a member strictly someone was to be brought along so I carried his classmate Vivek Shah along with him to this competition.

Judges panel included the delegates of HONEYWELLL Group of industries and IBM, India.

They were impressed with the new idea of this robot we made and the way they presented them the project including the future scope of their innovation.


Location :-TAJ hotel by VIVANTA,Banglore.

Date:- 8th -9th September,2017.

Task:- It was an ultimately proud moment to know that his team was selected as one of the top 15 teams across the all India.

Here he and Dr.Kamdar developed a turn prediction based self steering system which was appraised there so that was their last end project so technically they were 3rd year students and they had given tough competition to all those of post graduates and final year students,but didn’t managed to get the place in top 10. The exposure they got was super awesome and which ignited a lots of new ideas into their minds.

The Arduino Workshop scheduled on 27th and 28th July 2017. The two days were divided in 6 sessions. On the first day of Workshop all students were introduced to embedded systems. Joshi Sir narrated the story of development of Arduino board and its application in everyday life. Afterwards they gave students brief information of components of Arduino board. Starting from basic, the students were given guidance about programming in Arduino. The Basic project performed at first was blinking LED alternately. Second session was held by Prof. Ravin Sardhara. He taught the basic of Proteus Simulation Software. Arduino Boards and various types of sensors and their application were taught to students. By doing hands on, students performed some interesting projects. The third session was held by Prof. Nirmal Bhalani. He taught Digital communication using Arduino. A project was performed to get a clear idea about serial communication. The basic concept of digital transmission and receiving got clear. All students left after taking a assignment as homework.

Second day of the workshop started with discussion of assignment. The first session was held by Joshi sir. They continued the topic of digital communication. But due to Light cut out the workshop was postponed to next day.

The day started with hands on project on seven segments. Students were guided to print 0-9 numbers on seven segment using different techniques. The second session was continued by Prof. Ravin Sardhara. They taught seven segment projects in Proteus simulator. After wards they had hands on project on analog sensors. Students made some projects under guidance of Sir like Traffic light controller, Temperature sensor. The session ended with photo session with HOD and expertise.

WORKSHOP on Networking by Mr.Bhavesh Atara from AIMS Career Solutions

from 24-7-2017 to 25-7-2017

During the first day, the students were taught basic fundamentals of networking like its definition and concept.

They also learnt how to establish a network and classification of networks. They were explained sub netting concepts. They were also introduced briefly about the questions asked during campus interview.

Day 1

It was the first day of the arduino workshop of 5th sem EC department.Prof. Jaydeep was there to guide and supervise 5th Sem for the same.To accompany him, his junior, Jasmine sir was also there.Initally, he introduced himself and his ferm for which he is working. Then started the introduction about arduino, a development board with all the facilities of interfacing, coding and merging. It is an open source code. He showed them arduino and its types available in the market.He introduced to all the pins available and its variable uses. Then a step ahead was programming. He showed the syntex first and then described some commonly used instructions for the same. All the students did interfacing of

– 1 LED (on and off for once)

-1 LED (on and off in a loop with some delay)

-switch interfacing with 1 LED(on and off as per switching)

-switch interfacing with 2LEDs

and described about the positive output sensors and negative output sensors. At the end of 1st day he gave a task of interfacing 4 motors , 2IR sensors and an LED and make them function as of robot. He also described the importance of interfacing LEDs and switch and told us how practically it is being used


Initially, all discussed about the task given by sir as home work and accomplished it. On this day, initially digital and analog sensors were introduced, its input-output techniques and all.Then sir interfaced LCD with arduino and made all the student perform on a software called PROTEUS.Then was the turn of servo and stepper motor, after discussing about its types and functioning all saw its working. At the end of this session sir taught about PCB designing and its techniques.Last was the feedback round and a group photo session.

On the same day, Nirjaree Vadgama Mam came and taught about real time data logging on SD card with arduino on 3 dimension, with wired and wireless technique.


It was the day for IOT session. A sir named Kashyap Pithwa from the same firm came and taught us about this topic. IOT’s meaning, its use, its applications were introduced.How in recent time, companies are using IOT to get automised were shown. Then another development board named NodeMCU was introduced with inbuilt wifi facility. He showed how different sensors can be interfaced and how message can be transferred from mobile application to the device.Ended with showing a competitive video of robots and lastly with a motivational video.
