The students of Electronics and Communication engineering (2066 batch) completed their final year projects recently. IOE, Pulchowk campus being one of the top engineering colleges in Nepal, the final year projects from the students are of great interest to a lot of people. It also reflects the current culture and development in Nepal related to Electronics and Communication. We have created a list of projects by students with brief description, tools and technologies and various other details. You can follow the links to find source code, presentation slides and reports.

1) Home appliance control and security using PSTN:
This system is capable of controlling home appliances remotely and also providing home security using Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). The legacy PSTN network is used to control devices like light and fan using DTMF tones and a temperature sensor and a self made IR sensor for intrusion detection. Users is notified upon security breach. The system can take call from user, ask the user for security verification and enable the verified user to control home appliances. This is an embedded system that can directly be used in the house by slight modification in the current home circuitry which obtains status of different sensors in the house and based on the sensor status relay information to user in case of any security elapse.

Tools used : Embedded C, DTMF, atmega32, IR sensor
Team Members : Basant Raj Gharti Magar, Pawan Subedi, Sulav Malla, Suyash Chand
Supervisor : Uttam Mali

2) Internet Based Home Appliance Monitoring and Control using Embedded Web Server:
This project helps in controlling and monitoring of home appliances using internet and from remote location. The project makes use of AVR embedded web server which is less expensive and small in size and is able to control and check the status of the connected appliances. The control information from user to devices is passed through RF communication obtained by writing TCP/IP stack.

Tools used : Embedded web server, TCP/IP stack, Atmega644 controller, RF Communication
Team Members : Arun Paudyal, Bandana Sharma, Kashi Ram Acharya, Sapin Bajracharya
Supervisor : Jitendra Kumar Manandhar

3) FPGA Based Motion Detection and Alarm System using GSM Technology:
In this system the motion is detected and authenticated user is notified about the detection of motion by a message. At first motion is detected using FPGA and then message is sent to the owner through GSM modem. FPGA is used for fast accurate response of the system through parallel run of operations. This project is efficient to increase security of the devices and protect appliances from theft and robbery.

Tools used : SPARTAN 3E, GSM, FPGA, PIC 16F877a
Team Members : Mallika Shree Pokharel, Nikita Agrawal, Priyanka Tiwari, Upama Nakarmi
Supervisor : Daya Sagar Baral

4) Text-Independent Speaker Recognition System Based On FPGA:
This system is identifies /verifies the speaker regardless of what is being spoken. The speaker’s voice can be used to verify their identity and provide control access to services. The identity verification is done using high-level characteristics like syntax, dialect, meaning and low-level characteristics like pitch and phonemic spectra. The extracted characteristics are then best fitted to statistical classification model and implemented through software and hardware.

Tools used : FPGA, Matlab, VHDL, Speech Processing, GMM, Spartan 3E, MFCC
Team Members : Ashok Sharma Paudel, Deepesh Lekhak, Keshav Bashyal, Sushma Shrestha
Supervisor : Prof. Dr. Dinesh Kumar Sharma

5) GPS/GSM Integration for Enhancing Public Transport:
This system is an attempt to design a tracking unit that uses the global positioning system to determine the precise location of a vehicle and through GSM modem the vehicle location is transmitted to remote user. Information of the vehicle is passed to the website using SMS and the location of vehicle is tracked using Google Maps which users can obtain through their mobile phones with internet accessibility. The information of the vehicle is stored in the database. At the station the audio information about the status of the bus is broadcast along with displaying it on the LCD which helps passenger at the station to know the status of their vehicle and helps the visually impaired person to board the bus.

Tools used : SMS, GSM, GPS
Team Members : Anil Gaihre, Binod Basnet, Basanta Chalise, Subash Sharma
Supervisor : Daya Sagar Baral

6) Hand Gesture Recognition For Human Computer Interaction

The aim of this project is to implement hand gesture recognition, using general purpose hardware and inexpensive sensors like simple personal computer, USB web camera, in real time vision based system for the implementation of visual interaction with computers in home or office. The overall project can be categorized into four different tasks i.e. acquisition of image from a web camera, quick segmentation of the hand from image, recognition of the hand gesture, and implementation of the command depending on the hand gesture. The fundamental concept of our project is the segmentation of the moving hand from the real time video irrespective of the background of image and the lightning condition. Many hand postures are to be included in this project that would make the computer human interface more easy and accurate

Technologies used: Matlab, Machine Learning, Python, Neural Network
Team Members : Kedarmani Bhandari, Manoj Acharya, Patiram Yadav, Prashant Kumar Thakur
Supervisor : Diwaker Raj Pant / Co-supervisor: Anil Verma

7) Trekking Route Determination in Nepal:
This project is an app mainly targeted to people who go trekking in different parts of Nepal. A database consisting of information about different trekking routes is maintained and user can get information about all the routes available from the database. User can get information about specific trekking routes by entering the desired trekking place. the app also provides information about hotels, POIs and weather. Authorized users are also allowed to update database through CMS while other users should wait for the approval. The information is updated after it is verified.

Tools used : Android SDK, JSON, Directions API, Places API, Google Maps library, MySQL database, PHP, Mysql, Jquery, AJAX
Team Members : Dharma KC, Ranjit Acharya, Ranjit Bhatta, Sabin Devkota
Supervisor : Dr Nanda Bikram Adhikari

8) Advanced Vehicle Security System:
This system uses gps and internet to track the vehicles. GPS system is used to locate the vehicles from GSM and Google Maps is used to track the vehicles. This system provides security to the vehicles and can be tracked from any place on case of security breaches like theft.
