The BBD Group of Educational Institutions, pioneers in technical education in Lucknow, put up an exclusive and first of its kind robotic event, the ‘Smart Township Project’, in the university’s premises today. At the event, over 800 students exhibited a ‘Smart Town’ model involving 1872 home appliances, automobiles and other electronic devices in 200 model houses, controlled by a single mobile phone. The event, held in association with PurpleLeap, a Pearson-Educomp company and a pioneer in entry level talent management, aimed at helping students showcase their prowess in a technical field like robotics. It also created awareness among students on the applications of robotics in day-to-day life and its potential as an important field in technical education. This unique event was an outcome of the Industry Academic Partnership program being conducted by PurpleLeap at BBD University. The Smart Township is in the reckoning for a place in the Limca book of Records.

‘The Smart Township’ had 1847 devices -208 buzzers, 832 LEDs, 208 LCDs and 642 AC appliances which included tube lights, fans, LED lighting, TV and anything which is operated at 230V. Other than these the Smart Township also had four battery-operated, eco-friendly ‘Green Robotic Taxis’ plying on the streets, capable of going to any Smart Home autonomously. All these devices in the township were controlled by custom developed front-end software run on a mobile phone.

The event was inaugurated by Vice Chancellor and saw close to 1000 people in attendance. Visitors were treated to a vast range of basic and noteworthy applications that PurpleLeap has helped the students develop, utilizing both mobile and internet controlled robotics. The applications involved day-to-day aspects of living, including fire and safety, authorized entry and vehicle tracking – and notably, all this was controlled through a single mobile phone. The Smart Homes were designed to detect fire and communicate to the entire township within seconds of such an emergency. For security, the students designed finger print recognition for authorized entry and RFID card based Township Gate Control. The Smart Homes could receive GPS coordinates for Smart Vehicles, thus helping them track vehicle location. The program could also automatically control and schedule entry gates. Messages could be relayed to the entire township or to individual homes or parts of the township.

Speaking about the project Hon. Vice Chancellor BBD University, Prof. (Dr) A.K. Mittal said,“We are very proud of our students for this unparalleled effort at demonstrating the potential of Robotics. Through this Smart Township project we wanted to provide a platform for our students to apply the training they have received through the PurpleLeap robotics and embedded program, and we are glad that students could design and develop an entire township. Working with partners like PurpleLeap, helps institutions like ours bring such specialized streams to the large talent pool that exists in smaller cities.”

Speaking about the project Mr. Chandrashekar Shetty, Co-Founder and Head of Technology and Delivery at PurpleLeap said,“Robotics is a very exciting and interesting field in engineering. The students of BBD college have today made an attempt to showcase how our immediate future is going to be aided by smart technology and robotics. The Township project is a great example of how effective training can make students apply technical education to solve real-world problems.”

Globally, robotics is assuming centre-stage in product development across sectors including consumer electronics, medicine and automobile engineering. Consumer and industrial applications of robotics will witness double digit growth for the next 4-5 years. In India, demand for smart appliances, increase in grants and funds by governments, and enhancements in product value brought by robots are fuelling the growth of this field. Already, robotics is being explored as a strategic technology for the future with about 60 percent of the robotics application in India taken up by the automobile sector. Moreover, the Indian government is promoting use of robotics in medicine, such as aiding doctors in surgeries or to remind the elderly to have their medicines.
