Bhubaneswar: A students’ team mentored by Professor Aurobinda Routray of IIT-Kharagpur won the grand prize at the first “Accenture Innovation Challenge” in Bengaluru for its invention of a sleep assistant that uses a wireless device to remotely monitor sleep patterns. The innovation challenge event helped to bring out innovation initiatives from college students numbering around 13,000 from nearly 900 top and medium ranking colleges who submitted 7000 innovation ideas.

Routray, a professor of electrical engineering department at IIT-Kharagpur, along with his associate Laxmi Kant Tiwari and other students, had developed ‘SleepDoc,’ a wireless sleep assistant that uses a wireless device to remotely monitor sleep pattern and an intelligent voice-interactive system to suggest changes to the user. “The live data monitoring system tracks the user’s heart and breathing rate and alerts the nearest doctor automatically in case of discrepancies in the parameters,” said Professor Routray.
