PiSat model displayed at Space Expo

As part of World Space Week celebrations, Space Expo was held at Kochi to create awareness among the student community about the advancements made by India in space research. PiSat team members from PES University displayed a life size model of the PiSat, a sample of the solar cell, a sample of the magnetic torque rod, samples of the 4-pi sun sensor, and a sample of the battery used. Based on the level of understanding and curiosity of the listeners, the team explained the working and functionality of PiSat to different depths. Some of the noted scientists and members of VSSC/ISRO who visited the stall were Dr. K Radhakrinshnan, Chairman, ISRO; Dr. V. Uma Maheswara Rao, Director of Missions, GSLV; and Dr. Radhika Ramachandran , SPL, VSSC. The visitors to the stall congratulated us and the college on the successful launch of the satellite. Many of the scientists asked us to take up the ISRO test to join their ranks, and commended our efforts. The team got an opportunity to know more about SCRAM/RAM jet engines and their fuel efficiency, and ISRO's Aditya project to suspend a satellite in the Lagrange point between the sun and the earth in order to study the sun. The team members felt that it was also an enriching experience to interact with scientists from various domains of ISRO, VSSC, and DRDO. The PiSat team at the exhibition included Prof. Shanmugham C N and Inayathulla M, Rakshith Vishwanatha and Ranjith Srinivas.

Splendid performance at HoneyWell Tech Challenge by PES University students

The open office environment creates unique situations at workplace. The HoneyWell TechChallenge tested the problem solving and technical skills of participating teams in tackling a real world issue. The team of Adarsh S, Prabhanjan S K, Prajwal M R and Shashank T D was adjudged the winner. The judges chose the solution for simplicity of the application among other features.

Objective: To find the location of a user within office campus based on the WiFi router to which the user is connected to. For instance, if a user was connected to the Wi-Fi router present in the second floor of B-Block, on searching for his name or ID, the result would display as Second floor, B-Block. If the user connected to a different router later, when in G Block, then the location entry in the database should be updated to the instant location.

Challenge: Dynamically track the location by mapping the locations, maintaining and updating location in a database and searching the instant location.

Solution: The winning team used Electron framework which runs on top of JavaScript Frontend and converts the code into an executable file, which can be run on all operating systems. Furthermore, to run the application on mobiles as well, Ionic framework was used which converts the AngularJS code to the required platform without the need to explicitly write android/iOS code. The languages used: Frontend: AngularJS, Backend: NodeJS, Database: MySQL

Benefit: The dynamic tracking would help in improving productivity, immediate contact during emergency and efficient planning especially in an open office environment.
