List of Ongoing/Completed Projects


Title of Project:   Design and Implementation of content based Recommender System for answering web based user queries
CI/PI: Yashvardhan Sharma, Lavika Goel
Funding Agency: DST-SEED
Project Description: This project will enhance the user experience of asking questions and getting precise answers to their questions on World Wide Web. The system developed would enhance the online discussion forums and frequently asked questions for commercial and Government web portals. The project aims to recommend the solutions to questions asked by users through the available knowledge base. Since, the expert cannot participate in all the questions due to large number of participants, the system will also rank the questions based on priority for the expert to intervene. This project covers multi-disciplinary approaches involving contributions from artificial intelligence and data mining. It deals with the collection, analysis, visualization and management of large collections of data from online documents to design a scalable recommender system. This system would manage and utilize the scientific data in social informatics. 

Title of Project:   Development of Real-time Multi Objective Route Recommender Systems Using AI
CI/PI: Kamlesh Tiwari, Ashutosh Bhatia
Funding Agency: MapmyIndia
Project Description: Route selection from a given point of origin to a given destination point on a map is one of the important problems that need to be solved for any in-vehicle navigation. This task is challenging when we bring optimality and real-timeliness into consideration. Objective of the project is to build a turn-by-turn real-time route guidance system for Indian scenario. The system need to be fast, dynamic and could provide suggestions to the users depending upon their objective. This is a two-year project funded by MapmyIndia in Jan 2019 casting about 7.4Lac. 

Title of Project:   Mobile App for Assisting Indian Farmer in Improving Yield by Automatic Identification of Plant Diseases (Rice & Tomato)
CI/PI: Sundaresan Raman
Funding Agency: DST

Title of Project:   Development of a Cyber Physical System Based Smart Water Grid for Community Usage
PI: Prof KK Gupta, Co PI: Prof. AP Singh; Dr. Kamlesh Tiwari; Dr. Amit Dua
Funding Agency:  
Project Description: Safe and abundant water resources are critical to social, economic and environmental sustainability. Although water is a renewable resource, water availability and water quality may not be sufficient for desired water uses. A smart water grid, conceptually, involves elements related to sources of water, water collection systems, water treatment systems and water pumping and distribution systems. Special sensors deployed at selected points of a smart water grid could transmit real-time data about pressures, temperature, flow rates, vibrations, water level fluctuations etc. to a central server for an intelligent control. Here data analysis and machine learning comes into the picture to construct a Cyber Physical Systems. The project is funded by Department of Science and Technology, Government of India costing about 70Lac. 

Title of Project:   Investigation into issues in Deploying Software Defined Networks on Traditional Network Infrastructure
CI/PI:   K. Haribabu
Funding Agency:  Additional Competitive Research Grant, BITS Pilani
Amount Sanctioned (in Lakh): 8.20

Title of Project:   Wireless Network Virtualization: IEEE 802.11 Test-Bed implementation and wireless NIC virtualization
CI/PI: Vishal Gupta
Funding Agency: Additional Competitive Research Grant, BITS Pilani
Amount Sanctioned (in Lakh): 8.50

Title of Project:   Multi Agent Based Indoor Exploration with Miniature Robots
CI/PI: Sudeept Mohan, JP Misra, Avinash Gautam
Funding Agency:  DRDO CAIR 
Project Description:  The aim of this project was comparison and establishing of indoor exploration algorithms by co-operating multiple mobile robots through experimentation on COTS products. The project involved study of various multi-agent based exploration and mapping algorithms for indoor environment and simulation and analysis of these algorithms. Implementation of these algorithms on a real multi-agent robotic system was also carried out. 

Title of Project:   To Strengthen the Wireless Sensor Networking and Mobile Computing Research Facility
