Outcome of the projects

Outcome of LIDAR project

Date of commencement:03.11.2010
Date of completion: 02.07.2014
I. Design and development of a multi wavelength and multifunctional lidar as a researchfacility.
II. To Conduct scientific studies of atmosphere as described below
1. To study altitude distribution of aerosols in the troposphere and stratosphere and its association with the physical processes and meteorological conditions prevailing.
2. To study the altitude variation of aerosol size distribution function and its temporal variation, both on long term and short term basis.
Experimental work giving full details of experimental set up, methods adopted, data collected supported by necessary table, charts, diagrams & photographs:
The Lidar system has been designed developed and operationalised for regular scientific studies on aerosols and clouds in the atmosphere.
Schematic diagram of the Lidar system developed is shown below

Detailed analysis of results indicating contributions made towards increasing the state of knowledge in the subject:
i. The Lidar station is setup in the semi urban region in outskirts of Hyderabad city. The location appears to have a different aerosol loading with the sources emanating from local origin as well as due to transport from the city region.
ii. The Lidar system is under regular operation for scientific studies on aerosols and clouds.
iii. The Lidar system has been operated regularly in the early night hours when the sky is relatively clear and free of any rain.
iv. The altitude profiles of aerosol extinction are derived based on the Lidar data obtained during the last 8 months.
v. The monthly and the seasonal variation of the aerosol profiles in the summer and summer monsoon seasons has been studied to understand the effect of various meteorological parameters on the aerosols.
vi. This semi urban location might be loaded with aerosols from the burning of solid waste in some nearby locations and also from some of the infrastructure activities going on at this location.
vii. Studies on the physical properties of cirrus clouds are carried out using the Lidar system
viii. Variations of the cirrus cloud properties at this semi urban location in the outskirts of Hyderabad have been obtained using the Lidar system.
ix. The aerosol and cloud properties are being compared with the other locations.
x. The region around the Lidar station appears to be an interesting location for short term and long term studies on aerosols and clouds.

The ionosphere is an ever changing medium and affects the signals propagating through the medium. The predominant error is the time delay in case of GNSS signals operating in L-band. Most of the applications including aircraft navigation uses single frequency GPS receivers. Therefore, inorder to account for time delay, modelling is essential. Global, regional and local models are being developed for supporting GNSS systems worldwide. In view of this, the research contributionis in the very difficult problem of estimating the real time ionospheric delay in a country like India with large horizontal plasma gradients due to the Equatorial ionisation anomaly. TEC models such as Modified Planar Fit, Minimum-Mean-Square-Error, Kriging, Spline andSpericalHarmonics Function are investigated using seventeen TEC stations (Provided by SAC, ISRO) for suitable ionospheric model for The Indian SBAS, GAGAN system. Proposed a new technique namely ‘anisotropic-IDW with Jackknife’ to model the ionospheric delay variations (Satya et al, 2016).The technique takes into account the increased variability of the ionospheric delay and anisotropic property of the ionosphere. It is observed that the technique outperforms the Krigingand spline models when data are sparse.The results obtained and observations are published in IEEE transaction on Geoscience and Remote Sensing(Satya et al, 2016). At Present the work is in progress on linear combination of GNSS data in mitigating the effect of ionosphere and multipath for precise positioning, a triple frequency approach with new signals like L2C and L5 are being investigated in comparison with existing dual frequency techniques.

Internet of Things (IoT) and Cloud Computing Laboratory

The main objective of the Research and Development activity related to the IoT and Cloud Computing Laboratory at Geethanjali College of Engineering and Technology(GCET) is to design, develop and prototype IoT ideas for a smarter globe.

The term "Internet of Things" (IoT) is used to describe embedded devices (things) with Internet connectivity, allowing them to interact with each other, services, and people on a global scale. This level of connectivity can increase reliability,sustainability, and efficiency by improved access to information. Environmental monitoring, home and building automation and smart grids could be interconnected, allowing information to be shared between systems that affect each other.

The IoT is about physical items talking to each other. Machine-to Machine communication and person-to-computer communication will be extended to things. Technologies that will drive the future Internet of Things include: sensor technologies including Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFID), smart things, nanotechnology, and miniaturization.

IoT Research Activity @ GCET:

The IoT Inter-disciplinary research activity has faculty from CSE, ECE, EEE, Civil, Mechanical and Mathematics departments working for various aspects of IoT. The team will investigate and explore a variety of emerging devices and technologies involving smart sensing, pervasive connectivity, virtual interfaces, ubiquitous computing, and their potential applications in consumer, retail, healthcare and industrial contexts.
