ITRA-Mobile Technologies


 ITRA-Mobile (Projects Initiated in 2014)

Institutions Involved

 1. 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. Monetization will be done through location based advertisements and expanding the application to private bus and cab services. 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. PEC Chandigarh
 2. e-Homes: An automated system to sense, analyse, conserve and provide advice for enhancing home energy usage. This solutionwould 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. IGTUW Delhi
 3. 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. IIIT Delhi
 4. Cough Analyzer: A cough and wheeze analysis tool for respiratory health services. web based 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. VNRVJIET Hyderabad
 5. S-Mask: 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. FGIET Raebareli & UoC Kolkata
 6. ForkIT: 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 visualisation of situational information, to aid rescue‐relief activities during and after the golden hours of a level 3 kind of disaster. NIT Durgapur
 7. 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, e.g., in teaching of courses on Embedded Systems, Communication Systems, Mobile Computing and Internet of Things which require matching lab environments. While on the one hand it would provide a versatile pedagogical platform for bridging the gap between teaching/learning of theory and practice of such diverse ICT subjects, the use of ubiquitous mobile devices as the base would make the platform it affordable to institutions where the lab facilities may be lacking, thus significantly broadening the impact on technical education. IGTUW Delhi
 8. Piscean Net Solutions: A service to guide offshore fishing boats with real time information from the shore, and disseminate information collected by the individual boats to all the boats and to the shore. This technology provides an information portal for communication among offshore fishing boats, and between boats and the shore. The portal is accessible to both ends and acts as a continuously updated repository of information extracted by the boats and that available on the shore, e.g., by broadcasting information obtained by individual boats like locations and types and sizes of fish schools, and shore information like latest market demand and prices to help fishermen direct their effort at the best available catches.

 9. Soft Wireless Mesh Nets: A hybrid approach of traditional networking and software defined networking for wireless networks and wireless mesh networks. These technologies enable Software Defined Wireless Networks for fine grain management and performance enhancement of single as well as multihop wireless networks, useful for enterprise wireless LANs, heterogeneous cellular networks, military wireless mesh networks, and rural civilian communication networks. Indian Institute of Space Science & Technology,
Trivandrum, Kerala
 10. OceanNet: 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. Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Kollam, Kerala
  11. MediCloud: A very affordable solution for remote healthcare delivery. 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.
