The Electronics Club of the Department of Physics and Electronics had organised “Excitino” an Exhibition of Arduino projects on Wednesday 29 August 2019 in the Pathway of the University Main Campus. The objective of the exhibition was to enable the students to design and assemble a working model of an electronic system using Arduino development board. This exhibition was planned and executed by the V semester B.Sc. PME and CME students under the guidance of the faculty members of the department.
There were a total of 120 projects displayed encompassing various application areas of our day today life. The students demonstrated their working projects with a model, chart and a few animations on their laptop computers. There were very interesting projects like smart escalator, smart dust bin, smart blind stick, Mini games on LCD module, soft drink and water dispensers, smart street lights, home automation, security systems, mechanical display unit, digital thermometer, temperature and moisture monitoring systems, smart traffic controllers, obstacle detecting robot, etc. Along with these, the crowd pulling attraction was the Nitro engine aircraft RPM counter project with a small but functioning aircraft.
The exhibition attracted a large number of visitors that included students from first and second year CME and PME classes, students from other deaneries, faculty from other departments, staff members from various offices and centres of the University. Dr. George Thomas, Dean of Science, visited the stalls put up in the pathway, interacted with the students and shared encouraging words with the students. The faculty members of the department were present during the exhibition and monitored the whole programme.
It was a great learning experience for the students by designing and constructing a working model, they also enjoyed explaining the concept and applications of their work to the visitors. The hands on experience of electronics projects made them excited to do better work in their next semester.
The Electronics Club sincerely thanks the Management for providing such an encouraging opportunity and permission to organise this exhibition in a grand and fruitful manner.
