• The aim of this project is to design a car miniature/toy of size 1.5x2.5 feet and then build it through either custom made parts or through parts purchased from the market. The design can be done through any CAD software or by hand drawing. The specification of the miniature is given below.


    1. It should have a driver seat where a child of approximately 30Kg can sit and steer the wheels.

    2. It should have a steering, an accelerator, and preferably a brake to control the motion and direction.

    3. Have a control (either a switch or a lever) for moving the vehicle in reverse direction.

    4. Body must be made of light weight but strong material. The cost of the material (in fact the cost of all the parts) should be less.

    5. It can be open top or covered (on the top and the sides) based on the cost and feasibility.

    6. Power consumption should not be more since it is battery operated. It should run for at least 2 hours each time the battery is charged to its full capacity.

    7. Tyres, axle, body, and other supporting structure should be strong enough to carry the child safely.

    Expected cost of the final product:

    The production version of the design should be feasible with in the budget of Rs.1000 to Rs.1500. This means the cost of all the material, batteries, charger, etc. must fit in this budget when it goes for mass-production. So the inputs for building the prototype must be carefully selected.

    Amount we pay for this project: Rs.10000.

    Duration: 3-6 Months.

    Team size: 1-10 Members.

    Students eligible: Graduation, Post-Graduation.

  • This project is related to Image Processing. The image consists of a random Chess position shown on a standard 2D chess board (either color or greyscale image). It must be processed to understand the position on the board and write it out in FEN format to a file. An example of the input and output is shown below:

    Input image:

    Image source: Free preview of John Nunn's Chess Course

    Output FEN:


    FEN is a very simple format to record a Chess position. You can read this wiki article to know about FEN.

    Note that the output FEN format for the input image must have only the "Piece Placement" information; the rest of the parts of FEN are not required. Also note that the image can consist of some text along with the chess board. You need to exclude the text, identify the chess board within the image and then extract the chess position from the image. The image can contain multiple chess boards (along with the text) and the program/algorithm is expected to identify and process all the boards present in the image.

    Amount we pay for this project: Rs.10000.

    Duration: 3-6 Months.

    Team size: 1-5 Members.

    Students eligible: Graduation, Post-Graduation, PhD.
