Hi friends,

Please check out my entry in the Accenture Innovation Jockeys contest. The contest recognizes the most innovative idea in 3 categories: home, college and city. My idea is to have a Smart Traffic Controller that would minimize human supervision and provide automatic road traffic management in a cost effective manner. Please ‘like’ the entry if you think that I’ve done a good job. You would have to go to this link to know more about it. You will find a presentation prepared by me on the idea of a Smart Traffic Controller using WSN.

Ponder upon

13 02 2010

This is from a mail that got from one of my friends and i thought that its worth sharing:)

One old man was sitting with his 25 years old son in the train.
Train is about to leave the station.
All passengers are settling down their seat.
As train started young man was filled with lot of joy and
curiosity.

He was sitting on the window side.
He let out one hand and feeling the passing air,he
shouted, “Papa see all trees are going behind !”.

Old man smiled and admired son’s feelings.
Beside the young man a couple was sitting and listening all
the conversion between father and son.

They were little awkward with the attitude of 25
years old man behaving like a small child.

Suddenly young man again shouted, “Papa see the pond
and animals. Clouds are moving with train”.

Couple was watching the young man embarrassingly.
Now its start raining and some of water drops touches the
young man’s hand.

He gets filled with joy and he closed the eyes.
He shouted again,” Papa it’s raining, water is
touching me, see papa”.

Couple couldn’t help themselves and ask the old man.
“Why don’t you visit the Doctor and get treatment for your son.”

Old man said,”Yes, We are coming from the hospital as Today
only my son got his eye sight for the first time in his life”.

Moral: “Don’t draw conclusions until you know all the facts”.

IEEE Students Branch of Amrita is conducting a 2 day National Workshop on PIC Microcontrollers on Mar 27th and 28th, 2010.


This hands-on PIC Workshop covers the fundamentals of the PIC microcontroller family’s architecture (specifically PIC 16F87XA) and instruction set. Basic concepts are reinforced through the writing of simple assembly language programs. The knowledge gained from this class forms a solid base from which the attendee can explore more advanced concepts with the PIC microcontrollers. This Workshop also covers the basics of getting started with Microchip development tools. Hands-on exercises are conducted using the MPLAB® IDE. Attendees go through a step-by-step creation of a project, editing and compiling a program, running a program and using the MPLAB IDE. Also they learn step-by-step process of programming the PIC, debugging and verifying their assembly code in real time.

We are limited by our own imagination

12 02 2010

Today, after the lunch, as I was walking back to hostel from the mess hall, I overheard a group of boys talking. One of them was referring to the elephant that was tied on to a coconut tree. He said that the poor animal didn’t know what it was capable of. Or else it could have quite easily pulled off the chains and got its freedom.

I wondered: More often than not, this is the same case with many of us. We are limited only by our own imagination. Our abilities are endless, and so are the possibilities. I can relate to this quite well because I never thought that I could ever grasp the DSP ( Digital signal processing ), which is one of my subjects in my electronics engineering course. My seniors, my friends- everyone told me that its too tough too handle. These negative thoughts stopped me even from trying. It was only when I sat down with my DSP textbook and lamented upon it with all my concentration and the purpose clear in my mind that I began to understand the concepts. And yes! The effort was worth it as it has erased the fear that gripped me when I used to hear the 3 letters: DSP.

We are very quickly affected by the negative feelings surrounding us. But if we push hard enough, the adversities will surely surrender. And I now do believe that nothing is impossible.

I would like to quote some lines that would be really fitting in the context of my thoughts.

+ One of the rarest things that a man does is to do the best he can. – Josh Billings

+ Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to always try just one more
time. – Thomas Edison

+ Never tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and they’ll surprise you with their ingenuity.
– George Patton

The last thought fits well in case of my project – ‘Multiple Distribution System Using Microcontroller’. Rajesh sir, our project guide, gave us this topic but he never told us how to achieve it. He let us do it all by ourselves. I and my teammates browsed the web for long hours to get some idea. But finally we came up with our own ingenious design. And guess what, the project paper is now going to be published in the conference proceedings of WASET International Conference of Computer and Electric Engineers in Malaysia later this month. Isn’t that amazing? We never know what lies within us.

Please don’t hesitate to share your views and any similar experience.

Vineeth   : )
