IIT Bombay raises Rs. 4 Crore from alumni and public to fulfill their student’s need
New Delhi :
Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT Bombay) has raised Rs. 4 crore from its alumni and public for its students in need of laptops and other infrastructure. During this corona pandemic, when the only solution to cover up the education is online studies, it becomes necessary for all the students studying to own a laptop, smartphone and internet connection to have the access to online studies.

Alumni helped to raised Rs. 4 crore fund –
But not everyone is much financially stable to buy such electronics at sudden. So, to fulfill the requirements of its students, IIT Bombay raised fund to help them to buy necessities. This is done via crowdsourcing where public and IIT Bombay’s alumni helped to raised Rs. 4 crore fund. This helped almost 700 students to have access to internet after buying the required digital equipment. These students are now able to attend their online classes.
Happy to know that @iitbombay has helped its students in need of digital equipments/infrastructure by raising 4 Crore (approx.) via crowdsourcing.

Need of digital equipments/infrastructure –
Education Minister, Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank also appreciated IIT Bombay to help it’s students with the help of its alumni. “Happy to know that @iitbombay has helped its students in need of digital equipments/infrastructure by raising 4 Crore (approx.) via crowdsourcing. Almost 700 students have benefited from the donations and are now successfully attending Online Classes, ” he tweeted.
IIT Kharagpur develops Industry 4.0 technology to upgrade India’s manufacturing sector
New Delhi :
Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (IIT Kharagpur) has developed unconventional Industry 4.0 technology to upgrade Indian’s advanced manufacturing sector. The present innovation upgraded the industrial process of friction stir welding to a multi-sensory system of Industry 4.0.
The innovative technology is developed by Surjya K Pal, professor in-charge at the Centre of Excellence in Advanced Manufacturing Technology, IIT –Kharagpur, in association with TCS.
Cloud-based communication with the friction –
This innovation will acquire real-time information about the welding process through multiple sensors and ,enable online control of weld quality by means of cloud-based communication with the friction stir welding machine. “Welding is at the heart of any industrial operations. If we can improve the weld quality in real-time during batch production we can reduce rejections in post-production sample checks,” Pal said. Explaining the new technology, he said, “Our multiple sensor process involves various signal processing and machine learning techniques to predict the ultimate tensile strength of the weld joint is fabricated.”
Prof. Surjya K Pal of @iitkgp in association with @TCS has developed a novel Industry 4.0 technology for remotely controlled factory operations & real-time quality correction during industrial production in India’s advanced manufacturing sector.
Great job!https://t.co/6szXDpuuKI pic.twitter.com/n1wqzsnF4u

Concept of this technology can further be evolved –
This technology is connected with a vast experimental knowledge base to conform to a standard system and prediction of the weld joint strength, he noted. “Any defect identified during the monitoring procedure is corrected in real-time by sending modified parameters to the machine thus ensuring standardized quality of the process,” he said. The concept of this technology can further be evolved for real-time control of other industrial processes and such work will be carried at the center with other industrial partners soon, Pal added.
Make it possible for industrial houses –
“It (the technology) has not only set the course for remotely controlled operations in the Indian industrial sector but has also enabled real-time quality check and correction during the production process. “This will make it possible for industrial houses to achieve standardized quality goals throughout the production process and reduce rejection hence lowering the cost of production,” the DST said in a statement.
