Remote Vital Information and Surveillance System for Elderly and Disabled Persons
Title of Project:Remote Vital Information and Surveillance System for Elderly and Disabled Persons
Brief Description of the Project
Its specially designed for disable and elderly persons providing very cost effective and suitable system for India and other developing countries.
Disable and elderly persons will be under the surveillance of doctor virtually, apart from that the relatives of disable and elderly person can also see and talk with them on their smart phone, see the vital signs and also inform the doctor in case of emergency.
Doctor can also see/talk them on his/her smart phone or PC or tablet and can also see their vital signs and perform the close loop drug delivery and administer the drug with the help of infusion pump already fitted.
It is internet based smart and portable system attached in a dynamic wheel chair which can be converted into stretcher.
24X7 remote supervision of patient by Authorized relatives and Doctors on smart phone.
Vital Sign monitoring on Doctors smartphone.
Real time drug delivery plan by the doctor with Infusion pump and alarm.
Doctor can plan the exceptions and fix the Alarm.
System is portable and can also be shifted to ambulance.
All transmissions are wireless so there is no hassle of wires and connectivity.

Deep mobile face gender recognizer with sound representation for visually impaired people
In today’s era, the smart phone has powerful processors with more computing power than normal computers. This powerful computing power will make people’s life easier. Particularly, nowadays mainstream mobile operating systems including iOS and Android makes life easier and fast. With these OS, smart phones are very helpful for fair sighted people as well as of visually impaired people. The main motivation is to help visually impaired people to “perceive” through the lens of their smart phone. The first aspect of this research work is to have a mechanism that can run on the phone for the recognizing faces, their gender as well as age in an unconstrained environment. Therefore, the main goal is to classify the gender and build that with future functions in mind, so that the app can be relatively easily extended to be able to recognise other things in the future, for example, identify people.
Falls among the elderly occur frequently. Approximately 30% of people over 65 falls accidentally each year and for those over 80 this rate raises up to 50%. Falls are an important factor in the health limitations of the elderly due to high morbidity caused by physical and psychological consequences; loss of independence and even death. The fallguard project proposes a new generation fall detector which is expected to effectively minimize the consequences of falls in the elderly. FallGuard would automatically detect a fall and immediately activate a safety system to ensure minimal injury to the fall victim. Furthermore, it would also send SOS signal to health services, so as to allow an early intervention.

Focused domain – Sign Language, Animation In the proposed research work we will try to build the system(mobile application/Desktop application) to convert the typed text to sign.
There are special schools for these blind people where sign language is taught. Other than sign, the English language is also taught to some extent so that a person can communicate (to a non-signer) in English by writing keywords because the sentence formation is difficult for these students, but the fact is majority of the people in rural areas of Punjab neither understand Sign nor English language, they only communicate in their native language ‘Punjabi’. This application will especially help to a child to start learning at their home place before joining to any deaf school. it can act like an e-learning based system for preschoolers.
Skill Set Required: A team of 2 Members: 1 Punjabi Language Speaker 1 Python/Java Coder
