Students of the Institute of Information and Communication Technology (IICT) have developed robots that can pick and place objects in places dangerous for humans, a remote vehicle control and monitoring system and an enterprise planning system for Thermal Power House Jamshoro besides many other projects using advance technology.
The students of the final year had put on display their projects at an exhibition.
A group of students, Mohammad Sohail, Aisha Mehmood Ali, Syeda Arsala and Abdul Qayoom Palijo developed projects on remote-controlled robotic manipulator, which could do pick and place jobs in environments where it was too dangerous for human to work.
The students briefed that the project could do the job of parts transfer and pick and place for industrial purposes and general purposes as well.
BS electronics students, Ameer Bux Khoso, Ghulam Akbar Memon, Hamza Shabbir and Fahad Ali Memon had developed an autonomous mobile pick and place robot under the supervision of Prof Dr Abdul Wahab Ansari.
The robot could be used in biscuits industry. It was capable of picking a tray of unbaked biscuits, placing it into the furnace and then taking it out of the furnace after the biscuits were baked.
Mohammad Umair Shaikh, Mohammad Saleem, Sikandar Ali Dhiloo and Ms Tanzeel Babar had developed a project under supervision of Dr Imdad Ismaili on security system based on wireless communication in RF technology (CBSBW).
The project, the students said, would be helpful in providing security at the residential areas and monitoring the security system.
Bushra, Mehrina, Sawak Ali and Sehrish Memon prepared online time table management system. They said that the system would help in utilising resources optimally as the timetable tool would make it simple for the students to plan availability of human resources, physical resources and rules applicable to each class.
Other students had put on display projects on remote vehicle control and monitoring system, enterprise planning system for Thermal Power House Jamshoro, radio base station, monitoring and controlling, design electronic matrix unity for Arabic characters based codes, safe movement of trolley in factory plants, voice and video over Internet protocol and computer-based wireless robotic vehicle for monitoring and measurement.
A total of 71 projects displayed at the exhibition were developed by 249 students under the supervision of 16 faculty members, including Dr Abdul Wahab Ansari, Dr Imdad Ismaili, Dr Asad Shaikh, Prof Arifa Bhutto, Prof Shahid Larik, Prof Raza Shah.
