JALANDHAR: With an advent of technology, researchers are coming up with various unique ideas to reduce human intervention in the areas of work where the risk to life is very high. Earlier, there was a concept of ‘Virtual Reality (VR)’ which had garnered a lot of attention of gamers and enhanced their business in related applications. But, these days, the concept of ‘Virtual Tele-presence’ is slowly paving its way into the mainstream technological applications which gives a person an opportunity to roam around in the real world by not physically being there.

Taking inspiration from the advantages offered by this technology, a team of 2 students from the final year of B. Tech, Department of ECE, CT Institute of Engineering, Management and Technology (CTIEMT), namely Lakhwinder Singh and Amit Kumar under supervision of HOD Dr Harjit Pal Singh & Noorinder Kaur, have successfully designed and tested a working prototype of ‘Battery Operated Virtual Tele-presence Robot’.

Telling about it, one of the students Lakhwinder Singh said, “This robot has been designed using Raspberry-Pi platform and uses a digital camera to record the scenes from the remote area where it is placed, and return a live feed to the user on his mobile phone. This robotic system is equipped with the accelerometers, thus, whenever the user moves his neck in any direction, the camera will automatically change its field of view in the same direction. In this way, it gives a realistic experience to the user. The entire system is battery operated which is rechargeable using solar power.”

HOD Dr. Harjit Pal Singh said that this project idea has the huge potential to be helpful in the areas of healthcare, agriculture, natural and disaster relief.

CT Group Managing Director Manbir Singh congratulated both students involved in project work and motivated them for carrying out such a productive work.
