Wearable technology is the future of electronics gadgets. As interesting as it seems, it has myriad applications. This project aims at creating one such prototype, a hand gesture recognition system, using electromyography. Electromyography (EMG) is an electrodiagnostic medicine technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by the skeletal muscles. The basics of EMG are used to design a circuit that takes the differential signals from two electrodes placed on the same muscle at different locations as input, with one electrode as bone reference. The circuit pre-amplifies the input signal, filters the resultant signal for noise, rectifies it, and finally amplifies it. This output signal is then fed to a machine learning algorithm, which associates different signals with different data, and hence different gestures, and this can be utilized further to integrate with objects, that can be controlled using the gesture recognition system.Close
If we consider the situation of attending a party, our ears capture numerous sounds: a friend’s voice, the voices of others, background music, ringing telephones, and many others. If one concentrates, one can hear what a person is saying and you will filter any other sound. One can also change his/her focus of attention. For example, one may pay attention to your friend’s speech first and shift focus to the music if it is playing a song you like. If we were to record these sources by placing microphones in many places inside the room, the playback would be jumbled mix of sounds. One might be able to pick out a few words here and there, but there is no way one would be able to hear the conversation details. We are going to achieve this audio mapping using FPGA based circuit.Close
We will put IMU sensor on hand band and then using this sensor we will calculate the trajectory of the hand and then plot the graph of position of hand with respect to time. This data tells the application what the user is doing with their hand. With the help of machine learning we will pre-‐set the poses to perform specific task in the computer when the certain task is being performed. The IMU sensor will give us a data of certain pose and then the machine will predict which task is to be executed. .Close

The idea of the project is to represent various frequencies present in the audio input signal on a led matrix using FPGA. We will first take an audio input signal an convert it into a digital signal using ADC (Analog to Digital Converter). And then use Fourier transformations on the signals to obtain the coefficients for the various frequencies present in the audio input. Then finally we will represent the output on an LED matrix using Persistence of Vision. The FPGA will be useful as it allows parallel processing of the input signal while applying Fourier transformations.Close

Do you often miss out several important events because you simply forget about them? 'ASSIST U' is an android app which eases your everyday life by notifying you of things you tend to be forgetful. It's a closed-community(within IITK) tasks and reminder application which has a innate database of geo-coordinates of arguably, all location keywords within IITK, so as soon as you enter your note(containing a location keyword), the keyword is extracted from it and (geo)tagged on to the note saved. It then, incorporates the use of GPS to monitor your current location and chooses to/not to remind you on the premise of your distance from the nearest addressed task. An additional feature is the time-notes, which is similar to straight forward time-based reminders. With the functionality part pragmatic, the UI of the app is kept lucid and alluring with the coalescence of modern android design elements like Swipeable Tabs, Card UI and Drag and Drop. So we assist you so that you don’t miss out anything.Close

A LED cube is like a LED screen , but it is special as it has 3D.We can think it as of low resolution displays. In normal displays it is normal to stack pixels closer to each other in order for better resolution but LED cube has its limits. LED cube rely on optical phenomenon called Persistence of vision. If you flash a LED really fast it will remain in your retina for some time even after LED is switched off. By flashing each layer of cube very fast after one another it gives the feeling of 3d animations.Close
Think of the noisiest places, the quietest places and the busiest places you have been to. How many times have you missed an important call, message or other notification because you couldn't hear the tone or it wasn't appropriate to check your phone? A lot of times, isn’t it? So, we came up with the idea of making a watch that can connect to your smart phone and behave as a mini phone in case your phone is not accessible to you. Android watch reflects what is happening around the world and lets you know.
