BHEL Director Ajit T Kalghati  inaugurated the Open Day project exhibition at MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology, on Thursday.

Students from various disciplines of the college are exhibiting their projects at the two-day event.

For the first time in the history of the annual event, students from 14 engineering disciplines participated in the event. Some of the projects on display included a device which would alert drivers about oncoming speed breakers when lighting conditions were poor. Another project showcased a treadmill which could generate power and even a one-wheeled skateboard was put up for display.

A street lighting system was designed by the students and produced with a budget of just `5,000. The system functions on solar energy and contains sensors which measure movement that allows the light to shine with varying intensity depending on the number of people present.

Another innovative project that seeks to make waste management more efficient is the Smart Dustbin by the students of the Computer Science department. The prototype which has won numerous awards detects different types of waste - plastic, metal and wet waste and segregates it. An individual piece costs up to `200. “We hope to revolutionise the way waste is disposed and create awareness about waste management,” said Ketaki Rao, a student.

Ajit Kalghatgi also inaugurated a solar power plant in the college.
