  • An Automatic Effluent Treatment Plant For Coir Industry Rajendra C J, Suresh D S, Bindu M.D, Mahalakshmi B, Kanchana P

    Water is basic necessity of life used for many purposes, the major one of which is industrial use. Industries generally take water from rivers, lakes and other resources but they have to pay heavy taxes for that. So it’s necessary for them to recycle it in order to reduce cost and also conserve it. This proposed work focus on a coir industry where an enormous amount of water is used as a source and equally waste water comes out as drain.

  • An Autonomous Fruit Picking Robot System in Green Houses Anushree T, Bhavya K H

    Rapid increase in research and development in robotic technology has led to a gap between education and industry. Here we are going to develop an autonomous picking robot system for fruits. It consists of four major components the color sensor, servomotor, robot arm and Four channel relay. In this we use Arduino to develop the prototype. The use of robots in agriculture industry has been regarded as an important trend.

  • Automated Soil Nutrient Detection & Fertigation System Manuja S, Indu M J

    Soil is a thin layer of earth’s crust which serves as a natural medium for the growth of plants. It is a vital, living component of the environment–a component that can be manipulated to affect crop performance. Soil contains vital nutrients, NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium) contents and pH which are necessary for successful growth of plants. Nitrogen helps plant foliage to grow strong, Phosphorous helps roots and flowers grow.

  • Automatic Soil Moisture Monitoring For Irrigation System Rajath C S, Manasa U

    This major project on "AUTOMATIC SOIL MOISTURE MONITORING FOR IRRIGATION SYSTEM" is planned to design and implement an automated irrigation system which turns the submersible pump ON/OFF on sensing the moisture content the soil via the sensor. The submersible pump will pump the water into the field until the sensor detect that the field is wet. The main aim of this automated system is to monitor the presence of moisture in the soil in a cultivating field.

  • Energy Saving System Using Astronomical Clock Based Street Light Controller Praveen kumar C, Raghavendra K, Jagadesh. K R, Shrihari J

    Currently, in the rural areas, enormous electric energy is consumed by the street lights, which are automatically turn on when it becomes dark and automatically turn off when it becomes bright. This is the huge waste of energy in the whole world and should be changed. To overcome the disadvantage of LDR and ordinary timers an astronomical timer is used. The main thought is to save the energy in twilight mode and increases durability of bulbs.

  • Bioelectricity-A Novel Approach to Power Generation Nandini G, Mahalakshmi J S, Ashwini G, AmreenBanu

    What do you think a plant can give?? Of course pure oxygen, fruit and aesthetic look but what if it can generate electricity?? During Photosynthesis plants take Carbon-di-oxide and water in presence of sunlight to produce oxygen and organic matter. Small Part of this organic matter is used for plant growth. But a large part of this can’t be used by the plant and is excreted into the soil via roots.

  • Portable e-Learning Box for Agriculture to Support Farmer in Rural Areas Manogna P, Amith K, Punith NT, Priyanka TM, Anil Kumar

    This paper presents an economic e-Learning prototype for boosting up agricultural knowledge in rural regions of India. The proposed prototype is designed on low-resource and mobility concepts. An e-Learning service is utilized for local self-learning and local staff to instruct contents. Due to the limitations and problems of ICT infrastructure, we design our system to function in two modes which are an offline e-Learning server and a gateway hotspot.
