From your city (Ch. Sambhajinagar)
How did the idea come about?
A few days ago, Gurupreet went to the hospital. There he saw a disabled person. This person wanted to turn on the fan because it was summer. But as he was on a stretcher, he could not get up and apply the fan himself. So he had to seek help from others. Keeping in mind the problem of disabled and visually impaired people, he thought that his education should be of some use to the needy people. He got the idea of his project from this incident.
After many difficulties the device is ready
Gurupreet decided to work on this project. Started collecting the materials required for it. The coding of this project was created by myself. Created the mold. A wooden board was taken and four lights, a fan were installed on it and then it was fitted. While making this machine, Gurupreet faced many problems and solved it.
Electronic devices that can be handled by the disabled
Gurupreet used a large plywood, four lights, a small fan, sensor, camera, laptop, motion detection device etc. to build the device. According to this project, persons with physical limitations can easily operate household appliances such as lights, fans, air conditioners, heating systems, entertainment devices and more. By incorporating voice commands, customizable interfaces and intuitive controls, the project has successfully created an immersive environment.
Machine ready in five thousand
One of the key features of the project is its adaptability to different types of disabilities. For individuals with mobility issues, the system offers a range of options, including hand gesture-based controls, eye-tracking technology and switches accessible through assistive devices. The LOT home automation project, which has been prepared after a year’s hard work, has cost 5 thousand rupees.
The project will benefit everyone
My project is beneficial for disabled people as well as all people. For this, disabled persons will not need to depend on anything. I will try to do good work for all. Hope this project will be beneficial for all, said Gurupreet Singh. Whereas Gurupreet Singh is a very diligent student. He also helps students and faculty of other departments along with our department. He has worked hard on this project. Best wishes for his further progress, said Professor Dr. Dhoot said.
