The IEEE student branch of Amity University Rajasthan organized a webinar on COVID-19 research challenges with keynote speakers as Professor Ramesh Chandra Panda on 27th May 2020. The webinar began at sharp 4:00 pm with the introductory speech of IEEE-AUR student branch Chairman Mr. Hemendra Sharma followed by branch counselor Dr. Manju Kaushik, who further introduced attendees with the past work experience of Prof. Ramesh Chandra Panda.
Prof. Ramesh firstly highlighted some of the innovations his team has carried out like sustainable solar-assisted all-natural clay cool refrigeration system, IoT based sustainable manufacturing of organic fertilizer, AIR-O-water, 5G based optimized controlled humanoid robot with IoT based handheld mobile ECG effective for intensive care units, Windpower IoT based sustainable organic compost machine, Robotic process automated center shift mechanical ventilator, formulation, and preparation of alcohol-free sanitizer to name a few. In addition to this, they’ve patented 14 projects out of which 10 have been accepted by world intellectuals.
Professor told attendees about the innovations going on in the field to survive this global pandemic COVID-19. He emphasized the usage of machine learning and IoT for new research innovations. He enlightened the innovations which can be really very helpful in maintaining social distancing and sanitizing. Some innovations include a sustainable disinfectant sanitation tunnel, using robots in hospitals to assist patients, using machine learning for maintaining social distancing, manufacturing eco, and pocket-friendly chlorine sanitizers. E Vidyalaya an online learning platform by his team had also played an important role wherein students can access study material while sitting at home and be safe. He motivated students to put their efforts in research by applying their theoretical knowledge and finding the solution to real-life problems.
The webinar concluded with the vote of thanks from Dr. Manju Kaushik after a brief query session. The conference proved to be a great success with more than 200 active participants in the webinar.
