Innovative energy

An innovative concept was developed for generating energy using the vibrations of a car engine by the final year mechanical students of Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology, Banglore. This concept uses Piezo-Ceramic crystals to convert the waste vibrating energy of a car into useful electrical energy.

The project was carried out by Rajath M., Alva, Veda Kumar B.R., Satvik Hegde and Rahul Pai who were guided by Professors P.G. Mukunda and Professor P.B. Shetty Head of the Department of Mechanics.

Tricopter

Tricopter, a basic model of multi-rotor unmanned air vehicle, has been built by three students of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, PESIT, Bangalore.

Arjun Balakrishna, Punith A., and Kartheek S., with the guidance of S.V. Satish, developed this mode, which can be controlled using a radio controller. “Our aim was to build a stable and manoeuvrable unmanned aerial vehicle for multipurpose usage and to basically understand the aerodynamics of such a flight. The biggest challenge was designing the stability system,” the students explained.
