Today, I got a chance to present my project at the finals of the GR-Sakura Design Challenge in New Delhi at Radisson Blu-Dwarka. Although i did`nt win ( 😦 ) But, It was a great experience to be there and meet new fellows. I clicked some pictures of interesting projects and prototyping ways. It was great to see people use 3D printed motor mounts and extensive use of android phones in projects. One out almost every 5 projects had an android assisted interface.

Preview To Kurumi Board
Automatic Diesel Generator Control by Power Grid
A Train accident prevention system with sub-metre accuracy using GSM-GPS-GLONASS-WAD made by very senior person with about two decades of experience in designing safety systems. He also won a prize !
A huge farm automation project with almost everything LabView+Android+Sakura+Servo+Panel Tracking.. and the list goes on!
Another Great project from IIT,Bhubaneshwar.It studies the control requirements for designing a Uni-cycle.These guys have a huge stratasys 3D printer at their college which they call RPM-Rapid Prototyping Machine. They built the mounts for the motor and pulleys using solid works and later printed them.
A PLC based on Sakura Board
Another interesting project which uses accelerometer and Temperature sensors to determine whether a rotary machine follows the ISO standards!
I met a really interesting person at the event. Butani Sir is from Rajkot and has a very good knowledge of topics ranging from Microcontrollers ( you name any! ),Dev Boards, Aero-modelling,Graphics and Hands-On in general. He is a professor at a college in Rajkot and has a Btech,Mtech in ECE.This is his idea of a final project would look like! Cool Sketching 😀
Butani Sir while packing up (He too has a Chronos)!
How he did the board was real cool. Using his exp. from aero-modelling he made it almost like a shield and glued dangling components. Tip for ppl who prefer the perfboard

It was a great event.This was their first edition. If they ever plan to scale it up, they can see how TI does it in India.
Looking forward to hearing from you all!
