Research Highlights MORE

Mechanical Engineering

An underwater vehicle plays a major role in monitoring the marine life. The limitation with conventional rigid body vehicles are noisy, self weight and harmful for the underwater creatures. Soft robotics is an emerging field of study in which the robot is fabricated using soft polymers and flexible reinforced sheets which is compliant in nature. Instead of conventional motor based actuator, the soft robots uses smart actuators such as Shape memory alloy, piezoelectric, ionic polymer metal composite for its actuation. This work presents the design, fabrication, modeling and hydrodynamic analysis of SMA wire actuated soft robotic jelly fish.

Humanities and Social Sciences

Focused Research Group in Human Factors (FRGHF) of IIT Indore has decoded the mystery of distracted driving. Distracted driving is a major concern regarding safety issues behind the wheel all over the world. From the last one and half decades, the problem of distracted driving has worsened as more information and entertainment based technologies have found their way in the vehicles. According to the reports from Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (Government of India) the total number of persons killed in road accidents increased by 4.6 per cent from 1,39,671 in 2014 to 1,46,133 in 2015.
