IIT-Delhi unveils innovative projects

Quodsi everti ancillae vim qui lorem persius petentium IIT-Delhi unveils innovative projects

NEW DELHI, APRIL 21 (ENA) IIT Delhi has a lot to show off as its students have proved their worth by inventing gadgets that can be useful to all and sundry. Here’s what IIT Delhi has come up with, a digital microscope to see cells in 3-D, a helmet whose strap tightens with the click of a button and components which make buildings earthquake resistant. These are among the many projects IIT-Delhi had put on display on Wednesday, three days ahead of its 13th Open House.

The advanced projects on show are nearing completion and that’s not the end, some of them have even been patented and are now being used by the industries.

"Our goal has always been to make IIT conducive for research for students. We have executed 40 projects since last year," S. Basu, Assistant Dean, Research and Development, IIT Delhi, said at the event.

To make research a continuous affair, the IIT-D has launched a plan that "involves students from all four years" so that the research doesn't die with the passing out of the student, but makes itself available to be taken over by the juniors, he said.

Basu explained to the media about the institute's collaboration with Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO), wherein the former will receive Rs 230 crore over five years to build technologies to thwart mine attacks, assess their impact, and to build a "spy-balloon" -- conceptualized as a drone -- among others.

He also said the institute last year received a funding of Rs 170-180 crore, a marked improvement from a usual Rs 100-120 crore.
