The second prize was won by Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay for its project Non-Invasive Corrosion Detectors for India’s Infrastructure.
Shortlisted teams are guided for nine months
The fellowship received 50 complete proposal registrations from engineering colleges from all over India. All participants showcased their design thinking and create solutions that would drive societal change. The ideation of the participants addressed the issues in healthcare, agriculture and smart city.
Based on the registrations, nine teams were shortlisted. The selected projects were executed for nine months with regular architecture reviews, component selection reviews and interim deadlines. After review, a complete presentation and demonstration of the prototype were done. Each team had a mentor from Analog Devices who helped them in reviewing the system-level architecture, real-world technical challenges and also guided them to complete their project on time.
‘’Make for India’’ to build innovative solutions
Anveshan’s focus this year was ‘Make for India’, with a goal of building innovative solutions to solve problems in healthcare, agriculture, smart city, Industry 4.0 and smart lifestyle. This edition of Anveshan provided a platform to create and experiment with innovative technologies such as IoT, sensors, cloud, algorithms, data analytics, etc.
Developing concepts and algorithms which engineering students can use to design an innovative product to uplift the standard of living in our society was an integral part of Anveshan 2018. In order to continue the innovation stride, Analog Devices has announced the opening of registrations for Anveshan 2019. The central theme for Anveshan 2019 is ‘Design the Future’.
