The department of electronics and telecommunication at Don Bosco College of Engineering organised an inter-class technical review paper presentation competition. The objective was to promote a culture of research and innovation among engineering students, improve the communication skills of students and generate awareness about the latest development in technology. Through this event, students were given a platform to present a set of seminal papers already published in reputed journals in order to learn more about the publishing and presenting of research papers. Participants were divided into groups of four members and were asked to select a paper related to the various fields of electronics, communication, signal processing, instrumentation, etc, and present it.
The following papers were presented: ‘Secure file storage on cloud using cryptography’; ‘Design of a Miniaturized dual band patch antenna for WLAN applications’; ‘Application of MIMO system for TTCSM sub systems to control satellite’; ‘Home automation: PLC -controlled implementation’; ‘Public safety communication above 6GHz: challenges and opportunities’; ‘Image processing for early diagnosis of breast cancer using infrared images’; ‘Design challenges in silicon photonics’; ‘Embedded based deaf mute communication system’; ‘Measurement of ECG, Respiratory rate, Tilt and temperature of a patient and wireless Zigbee data transmission’; and ‘Short-mid-term solar power prediction by using artificial neural networks.’
The judges at the event included technical specialist at Optel Vision, Verna, Yadnesh Sanzgiri and assistant professor at Goa College of Engineering, Farmagudi, Palhavi Kerker.
The first place was awarded to Saif Ahmed, Vaishakh Sanjeevan, Neha Shanbhag and Shriya Nayak for the paper titled ‘Embedded based deaf mute communication system’.
The second place was awarded to Pranav Khedekar, Akshata Naik, Sheetal Pharakate, Saish Raut for the paper titled ‘Measurement of ECG, Respiratory rate, Tilt and temperature of a patient and wireless ZIGBEE data transmission’.
