ITRA-Mobile Technology Prototypes


 ITRA-Mobile (Projects Initiated in 2014)

 1. Salcit Technologies: Digital Health Advisory System (DHAS) for Respiratory Diseases
A web based cough analysis tool for lab free monitoring of respiratory diseases such as Asthma, Tuberculosis and Pneumonia with an in-built automatic cough, wheeze analysis and with an ability to generate early diagnosis report or patient recovery report which can be used by physicians, care takers and family members.
 2. ForkIT Technologies: Quick set-up Resilient Network for Disaster Management
A service to establish ad hoc communication networks at short notice in disaster-struck areas by scatter-deploying mobile phones and interlinking them.
Even when conventional communication infrastructure is fully or partially disabled, these quickly established self‐sustaining network and services act as a platform for collection, dissemination and map‐based visualization of situational information, to aid rescue‐relief activities during and after the golden hours of a level 3 kind of disaster.
 3. NexConnect: Empowering Rural Communities for Livelihood, and Skill Development
Building disaster resilient communities digitally through implementation of knowledge informatics hubs in regional languages at multi-purpose cyclone shelters in coastal areas for automatic pre-disaster warning, situational data collection, resource allocation and distribution, in normal as well as disaster situations.
 4. RF- SpectroPi: Mobile Spectrum Analyzer Enabling Dynamic Spectrum Access and Radio Environment Mapping
RF-SpectroPi is an attempt to develop an all-in-one, low-cost, handy and robust spectrum measurement setup. It would drastically reduce the manpower, survey time, and enhance the further research activities.
 5. S-Mask: Quantitative Analysis of Exhalation for Monitoring COPD Patients
A device for quantitative analysis of exhalation useful for monitoring chronic obtrusive pulmonary disease patients
A low cost device for digital measurement of vital exhalation related parameters such as tidal volume, residual volume, minute ventilation and forced exhalation volume, helpful in treating Asthma patients. It replaces the current system that involves forcefully breathing into a pipe which pushes up a ball at the other end, and noting the height to which the ball rises.
 6. OceanNet: Wireless Communication Networks for Off-Shore Fishing Boats
A dynamically configured wireless system to establish communication among small radio units located on off-shore fishing boats, and between boat-clusters and shore.
This technology solves the challenging problem of establishing a wireless communication network at sea, among scattered fishing boats, out of the reach of the communication towers present on the shore. It allows the fishermen to talk among themselves, as well as with the shore.
 7. SmartWays: A smartphone based system for real time bus information, remote collision detection, and pre-collision vehicle path forensics.
This technology aims at improving the transit experience of commuters, starting with public buses. A Smartphone Application will in one click provide commuters real time information about transit route, the core of which includes estimated bus arrival time and occupancy level. An analysis tool will also be provided to analyze the sensed trajectories of the vehicles to detect collisions among vehicles and analyzing the vehicle movements that preceded them.
 8. e-Homes: An automated system to sense, analyse, conserve and provide advice for enhancing home energy usage.
This solution would detect the need of the various appliances, e.g., by detecting presence of people, temperature, etc., and turning lights, fans and other home appliances on and off accordingly. It is thus expected to reduce the energy footprint of households.
 9. Cardio Watch: A low-cost, cuff-less, continuous Blood Pressure monitoring solution.
A robust, low-cost, calibration-free, continuous and cuff-less blood pressure recording and monitoring system. The data is automatically transmitted to a cloud based service for reporting, analyzing and saving in a medical database.
 10. Smart Phone Lab: A smartphone kit to serve as a LINUX PC and allow experimentation with various theoretical concepts in computing – by allowing freedom to combine different operating systems, hardware interfaces, and applications.
One specific application that the technology would have is in raising the average quality of technical education, which require matching lab environments. Use of ubiquitous mobile devices as the base would make the platform affordable to institutions where the lab facilities may be lacking.
 11. MediCloud: A very affordable solution for remote healthcare delivery.
A hardware and software healthcare system for telemedicine kiosks/mobile units, designed to function under rural Indian conditions – with capabilities including communication with remote doctors through cloud, and data entry and extraction interfaces suitable for operation by the unskilled – to take healthcare to the door of every citizen, including in rural areas.
