Internet of Things or IoT in short, is the idea of making devices and objects smarter by linking them to the internet. With IoT, you could for example have a fridge notify you when there’s no milk. IoT has promising applications for smart homes, wearable devices, smart cities, connected cars and more. It is expected that there will be more than 20.8 Billion Connected Devices by 2020. IoT, in current trends, is an innovative research topic with immense applications in near future. The main purpose of this workshop is to introduce students to the world of IoT and enable them to get fair experience in this field. Participants will gain knowledge through theory sessions and Hands-on-Sessions on the latest Raspberry Pi 3, which runs on Linux and interface hardware using python. This workshop is all about electronic circuits, networking and computer science, with a prerequisite of basic knowledge about coding and connecting. Know More to Register : Click Here

IEEE Robotics & Automation Society IIIT – Allahabad Chapter is going to organize a guest lecture on the Topic - “Guest Lecture on Robotics to Rural - Innovation Teaching and Research Approaches and Robot Dynamics” from 28th October, 2017 to 29th October, 2017. The Lectures would be delivered by Prof. Subir Kumar Saha, Senior Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Delhi. Prof. Subir Kumar Saha, a 1983 mechanical engineering graduate from the RE College (Now NIT), Durgapur, India, completed his M. Tech from IIT Kharagpur, India, and Ph. D from McGill University, Canada. Upon completion of his Ph. D, he joined Toshiba Corporation’s R&D Center in Japan. After 4-years of work experience in Japan, he has been with IIT Delhi since 1996. He is actively engaged in teaching, research, and technology, and completed projects worth more than Rs. 5 crores (~ USD1.0 million). He established the Mechatonics Laboratory at IIT Delhi in 2001. As recognition of his international contributions, Prof. Saha was awarded the Humboldt Fellowship in 1999 by the AvH Foundation, Germany, and the Naren Gupta Chair Professorship at IIT Delhi in 2010. He has been also a visiting faculty in Canada, Australia, and Italy. Prof. Saha has written several books. A text book on “Introduction to Robotics” published by McGraw-Hill in India and Singapore was also translated in Mexican Spanish. He has also written three course booklets on “Robotics” for IGNOU, New Delhi. To make robotics learning fun, a software RoboAnalyzer was developed under his supervision. He has co-authored two more books with two of his ex-Ph. D students, 1) “Dynamics of Tree-type Robotics Systems” supported with ReDySim (Recursive Dynamics Simulator) software; and 2) “Dynamics and Balancing of Multibody Systems.” Both were published by Springer. He has more than 175 research publications in reputed journals/conference proceedings, and delivered more than 150 invited/keynote lectures in India and abroad. Prof. Saha’s two special interests are: 1) innovative research by converting rural problems into research topics, which he pursues through a lecture series called MuDRA or Multibody Dynamics for Rural Applications (delivered 35 times since 2007) and his book on Multibody Systems; 2) an innovative teaching methodology, which is pursues through another lecture series called RoCK-BEE or Robotic Competition Based Education in Engineering (delivered 48 times since 2007) and a book on the same name published by www.pothi.com.

Communication Connect

While it’s easy to see the value in communication, we’re at a strange crossroads where physical and digital communications converge. Generally, it doesn’t take much tech savviness to understand how to use them independently. However, how do they interact with each other? As the divisions between the two are dissolving and digital communication is simply becoming communication, are you properly prepared and equipped to effectively engage and converse with people? "Communication Connect" is a two - day workshop that will help you in realising this objective. Jointly organised by the Department of Management Studies and the Department of Information Technology, this two day workshop will be held on the 27th and 28th of October, 2017. The event will include talks and workshops on an extensive array of domains that will provide meaningful insight which help in developing ideas for delivering talks and making effective presentations. We hope that the workshop will help the participants expand their horizon and be able to connect themselves with the prevailing practices in different domains of education.
