Thiruvananthapuram: Underwater drone, Suraksha mitra, a vehicle tracking and monitoring system and panic button aimed at alerting control room in case of emergency, were some of the indigenous technologies exhibited at Technology Exhibition organised as part of the National Technology Day 2019 at the C-DAC campus here on Friday.
SURAKSHA-MITR, the vehicle tracking and monitoring platform ensures safety in public transport vehicles. Panic button is a technology which helps the user to alert control in case of any emergency situation.
Once the panic button is passed, the message gets transmitted to the control room and subsequently the location of the vehicle is traced immediately.
In any urgency pressing panic button will give alert to the control room and they could easily trace the location. Newly evolved technologies are effective in the area of forensic, medicine and traffic.
On display was also EEG analyser, a software for seizure prediction using offline EEG data recordings. This can be extended to detect neurological disorders such as chronic seizures and epilepsy. Experts at the exhibition said currently no clinically approved system existed for seizure prediction. Seizure prediction technology can go a long way in ensuring timely intervention of doctors and caregivers.
The day long exhibition was to propagate the advanced technology developments undertaken at C-DAC Thiruvananthapuram and to create awareness among research institutions, industries, start-ups and academia on the latest technology trends.
The exhibition showcased products developed under the various thrust areas; Advanced Communication, Industrial Automation, Cyber Security, Health Informatics Power Electronics, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Strategic Electronics and Education and Training....
