A remote vehicle control and monitoring system and an enterprise planning system
Hyderabad, Jan 14: 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, which was inaugurated by the vice-chancellor of the Sindh University, Dr Mazharul Haq Siddiqui on Monday.
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 informed the vice-chancellor during briefing 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.
The vice-chancellor praised the ingenuity displayed by the students in the development of such projects and urged them to serve society with their knowledge. He said that half the past century was dedicated to information and communication technology and the 21st century was defined as the century of biotechnology.
He said that despite facing financial constraints the university was trying to provide all required facilities to its students. The Higher Education Commission had provided funds liberally to the universities during last seven years for filling the gap in higher education, he said.
The director of IICT, Dr Imdad Ali Ismaili, said in his presentation that students of different disciplines had developed projects on various subjects, which would be helpful to many institutes, organisations and industries of the country.
He said that BS Information Technology students had developed 24 projects, BS Software Engineering 19, BS Telecommunications 14 and students of BS Electronics had prepared 14 projects.
He said that the IICT was covering areas like web-based application, hardware design, E-commerce application, information systems, navigation systems, security systems, communication systems, software re-engineering and multimedia.
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. The NewsYour Comments

Sindh Edu dept seeks law dept's advice for control of edu boards
Karachi: The Sindh Education Department has sought advice from the Sindh Law Department to finalise a draft bill seeking control of the provincial education boards from the Sindh governor, it was learnt on Tuesday.
"The bill will be re-submitted to the Sindh Assembly Secretariat so that it can be included in the agenda of the house before the start of next assembly session," said education department officials.
Earlier, a bill was passed by the Sindh Assembly where the majority voted in favour of transferring control of six education boards to the Sindh Education Department. However, the Sindh governor sent the bill back to the provincial law department saying that there were loopholes in the bill.
The boards which the Sindh Education Department is seeking control of include Boards of Secondary and Intermediate Education in Karachi, Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Hyderabad, Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Mirpurkhas, Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Larkana, and the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Sukkur.
The officials said that the department was working to re-draft the bill in coordination with the law department. "The objections on the bill will be removed and then sent again to the assembly for approval. As soon as the bill is approved the control of boards will be automatically transferred to the Sindh Education Department." Daily Times
