Engineering students’ “Team Electronica” at LPU has made illustrious win in world’s biggest open innovation competition ‘Smart India Hackathon (SIH) Hardware Edition-2020’ for the second time in a row. This year problem statement posed to LPU students through Government of Madhya Pradesh was ‘Solo IoT Devices to capture Video and Audio Evidences’.

A team of 6 LPU students worked hard to develop a Camouflage CCTV Monitoring System that can be hidden in a display board, like matrix timer at railway stations. This system can help to detect suspicious activities, criminal recognition, and even track the suspects.

LPU team leader Medisetty Arun Sai Teja had worked for this project along with fellow engineering students Juluri Bharath Kumar, Nukala Ram Kumar, Meka Vishnu Madhavi, Naitik Gohain, and Kasthuri Bhanu Prakash. Bharath Kumar explains, “This CCTV system is so precise that it works all around at 360 degree with clear visibility.” LPU faculty Mandeep Singh and Rajesh had mentored the team.

Congratulating the winners, LPU Chancellor Mr Ashok Mittal shares: “‘Team Electronica’ of our students can be termed as an unstoppable team. Even during terrifying pandemic time, they got together for development of a perfect solution for the problem posed to them by a state government. This way, our students are regularly proving up to the expectations of PM Modi whether it is enhancement of digital literacy or working on his dream projects like ‘Make in India, Atam Nibhar Bharat’.”

The team has previously won Smart India Hackathon 2019 edition where they solved the problem statement from Mahindra and Mahindra.
