Pressure Biofeedback Device & Land surveying with a UAV

Innovation Incubation & Research Centre, MGM University Aurangabad is working over a ‘Pressure Biofeedback Device.’ Pressure biofeedback device gives valuable information to ensure and precision in exercise performance and muscle testing in the physiotherapy. It allows the clinician and patient to determine if the patient is able to selectively isolate and maintain contractions of the cervical or lumbopelvic core stabilization muscles. The measuring range of this device is 0-30 lbs digital pressure with an accuracy of 0.1 gm pressure. The device includes resting pad with base, pressure sensors, digital remote monitor. The team working over this device are Dr.Nitin Phafat (IIRC Incharge), Mr.M N Bargir (Designer of device, and Lab Incharge of Additive Manufacturing & Reverse Engineering Lab) & Ms. Debba Khan (PG student of MGM Physiotherapy, Aurangabad).

Land surveying with a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) offers enormous potential to GIS (Geographic Information System) professionals. In fraction of time, with help of autonomous drone, it is conceivable to carry out topographical surveys of the land with same superiority. In comparison with the measurement collected by traditional survey method require ample of time as well the cost required for site survey and the workload of specialists in the field is more. Innovation Incubation & Research Centre, MGM University Aurangabad survey a 16-acre land at Gandheli Pump house by using RGB Phantom 4 DJI Drone. During a drone survey with an RGB camera, the ground is photographed several times from different angles, and each image is tagged with coordinates. The survey & topographical GIS report within completed 2 hours. The survey carried out by Mr. Laxmikant Kokate (Lab In charge of UAV Lab), Mr. M N Bargir, Mr. Pankaj Dhoble, Mr. Amol Mahadik, Mr. Vishal Ghatge & IIRC team.
