Internet of Things is among the newest technology in the industrial and development sector. It has created a huge wave and influenced the manner we communicate and share the information. The IoT technology connects devices to each other, and to the people who use it in their daily life. Leading Industries have transformed their development towards Internet of Things; therefore, companies are in search of professionals who have strong fundamental knowledge in the concepts of Internet of Things. With specialization in this field, the young and talented graduates can develop lucrative IT careers.
Internet of Things (IoT) has already transformed the way the world works. Just take a look at the way things are becoming smart and autonomous – most of the IoT devices don’t need human intervention anymore - they can self-maintain, self-propel and self-drive. A car is becoming smart enough to avoid sudden mishaps. The cameras on the road are intelligent enough to take pictures of any casualty and inform the emergency team, or the police. All this is possible because of sensors, microcontrollers, and network security embedded in IoT objects. This is why IoT is seen as the next big thing in technology, which will transform the employment landscape in the IT industry.
Between 2014 and 2017, the demand for IoT talent has accelerated by 300%. With IoT fast approaching, Gartner predicted that by 2020 there would be more than 50 billion devices connected to the Internet of Things. These are the professionals who keep an eagle eye on the execution part of the project. Their job roles vary from development to marketing. They collaborate with development teams to take care of business requirements and implementations.
Robotics is an interdisciplinary branch of technology that deals with design, construction, control and operation of a robot. A simple robot is a machine that is embedded with a sensor, a processor and an end effectors whose application may vary depending upon its connected sensors, end effectors and information processing.
The robot has a temperature/light sensor as its sensing element for fire and a water sprayer and motors as its end effectors. The robot is capable of detecting the event of fire, trace the exact location of fire and spraying the water to the detected location. The control commands to the end effectors based on the sensory feedbacks are given by the Atmega128 processor.
The surveillance robot can be used for both commercial and defense purposes. The robot consists of an onboard wireless camera that can stream sequence of images through zigbee protocol. The actuators of the robot can be remotely controlled by establishing Bluetooth connection between the processor and the controlling joystick.
The robot is a miniature working model of an industry standard crane whose arm movements are actuated by the pneumatic linear actuators. The robot has one circular degree of freedom provided by the vertically mounted DC motor and three degree of freedom provided by the linear actuators. The robot navigation is achieved through the differential drive of the horizontal DC motors.
The robot has an onboard arm mechanism that act as an mechanical gripper to hold and release the objects. The gripper movement is manually controlled by controlling the actuator and the robot makes a differential motion to move from one point to another.
The dynamics of the robot is similar to the Mars rover- Curiosity. The robot has an onboard wireless camera mounted on the servo drive which gives a 360 degree field of view of the surroundings. The robot is powered with the 6 differential drive DC motors which is controlled centrally by the Atmega128 processor.
The robot is mounted with the array of ultrasonic proximity sensors whose output are monitored by the processor. When a sensor reads a value below its threshold, the corresponding motor is actuated to make the robot turn towards a safer direction.

SAE INDIA conducts this competition every year. Students across the country from various institutes and universities represent their team. The primary objective is to design and fabricate an ATV. The event (BAJA) comprises of dynamic events such as acceleration test, deceleration test, hill climb, maneuverability and a four hour endurance race where the vehicle is subjected to these events which tests the students design perceptive.
Before entering the competition we have preliminary round where teams from different colleges are supposed to present their respective design reports. More than 400 teams have participated for the SAE INDIA BAJA virtual preliminary round and out of which 120 teams have been selected for the main event and we are one among. The event helps the students to arcane subject relating the field, works on real time problems and helps them to be pragmatic. In this project students learn and gain experience in designing, machining, fabricating and financing and real time reliable vehicle and also communicating with vendors, suppliers and sponsors. Members in the team face high pressure scenarios during working hours where they have to complete their part in the time specified and always putting budget in mind. Besides the technical skills the project also tests the disciplinary actions among the members, team work, team strategies, ethics and project management are considered as a prominent role. This project gains a valuable experience to the members. The team comprises of various ages and majors. SAE India Baja gives us exposure to various automotive items. Students work hard and give commitment to the team including weekends and late night hours. Students join SAE India Baja because of their zeal and motivation to see their design from a virtual display to a real time functional model. This event is hosted in Pithampur at INDORE; the event is during the month of February.
The entire event is covered on Neo Sports and also goes live on air in few stations. Each teams as a cumulative sum of 25 student body members and 120 teams in the event. Apart from the participants we also have other enthusiasts coming up for the event as audience. The event is sponsored and hosted by automotive giants such as Mahindra and Mahindra, Chevrolet.

Indian Geo spatial Market is on the verge of a humongous growth. Most Indian firms in GIS are involved in the data collection, data capture and data conversion scenario. The government is the biggest consumer of GIS applications and uses it actively. India, with its diverse landscapes a perfect fit for a technology like GIS. This is largely attained due to government focus on use of GIS and large initiatives like R-APDRP and NLRMP but this is just the start. It is also estimated that private players in infrastructure, telecom and other utilities are spending around Rs 50crore annually on GIS products and services.
ANNOVA Technologies Pvt. Ltd, CGC Converse Technologies Pvt. Ltd, Geosoft Technologies, IN-RIMT, RSI Softech India Pvt. Ltd, Infotech Enterprises etc., Several hundreds of industries are doing outsourcing jobs in the applications of Map generation, Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry, insurance companies etc., The industries prefer trained candidates in the field of GIS instead of recruit and train. The placement opportunities are expected to be improved those who possess GIS skills.
GNITC believe in providing necessary infrastructure to its students and train them industry preferred software applications to improve their job opportunities. GNITC established a Centre of Excellence on Geomatics with the latest server and software from ESRI which enables the students to undertake minor and major projects under the guidance of experienced faculty.
