Quarantine Productive Initiative (QPI 2021)

Posted on March 16, 2022

Although reckless and uncertain, the quarantine has presented us with plenty of opportunities to dig deep into our talent-treasure troves and find gold. The R&D Cell has grabbed this opportunity by the horns and generously lent R&D components to KiTEian innovation addicts at a component auction on 17 April 2021.

The Quarantine Productive Initiative – 2021 aims at encouraging students to work on projects of their interest, using relevant components from the R&D Cell. The motive is to help students by ensuring that their projects deliver on maximum efficacy at no cost.

IoT components put up for the bid were Digital Assistant Devices: Alexa, Google Home, My craft & Cameras, and other electronic components and gadgets.

Around 70 students, along with faculty members, bid for components in the R&D Cell. The jury members, Dr. Vijaya Chamundeeswari V, Principal, KiTE, Dr. Venkateshwaran Loganathan, Dean, Computing Sciences, and Prof. Srikanth Janardhanan, Director, R&D, evaluated all the proposals to justify the allocation of all equipment to projects.

The students will record their projects at home and send the videos to the R&D Cell, kick-starting the initiative on 19 April 2021.
