- Carrying the slogan ‘Start up LPU, Rise up LPU, NGXPO-2016 (Next Generation Expo-2016) is termed as India’s number one student based expo
- Event is to push students to innovate
- CEOs, Marketing Heads visited Expo to hunt for next big ideas
- Selected 350+ Start up projects from different domains of Engineering, Computer Applications, Agriculture, Pharmacy, Biotechnology, Fashion Technology and more were showcased
Selected 350+ projects were showcased at Lovely Professional University today at its annual Next Generation Expo 2016 (NGXPO-2016) for innovative startup concepts of LPU students. Carrying the slogan “Start up LPU, Rise up LPU’, NGXPO-2016 is termed as India’s number one student based expo. Start-up projects from different domains of Engineering, Computer Applications, Agriculture, Pharmacy, Biotechnology, and Fashion -Technology attracted all. The most attractive project was out of the most modern online marketing trend where a drone was showcased transporting blood during emergency. Similarly, a mobile app oriented project was there to fetch required amount of water at home as per recharge value. CEOs, Marketing Heads visited expo to hunt for next big ideas and encouraged the enterprising students. LPU Director General Er HR Singla inaugurated the Expo.
During Business talk hours at the Expo, Unit Head of ‘Shoppers Stop’ Mr Sandeep Kumar advised students that before embarking upon any of their projects they should have some related industry joining experience. This one-two years’ experience will lead them to have a proper know-how about the latest trends prevalent in the market so that they may be successful. For small start ups, students should identify the nearest market for their products and low budget advertisement methods as through Cable-TVs, pamphlets and more. He also informed students that recruiters always judge integrity and lively disposition in a candidate.
As many parts of India are facing scarcity of water, LPU students’ projects ‘Smart Water Conservation for Next Gen Cities’, ‘Smart Rain Harvesting’, ‘Kharcham Wangtoo Hydro Electric Power Plant Prototype’, ‘Grey Water & Its Conservation’ were there to provide great solution to the existing water problems. Ankit Badola informed about handy ‘Solar Power Bank’ which can prove a boon to the solar power user on immediate needs during long drives. ‘Earthquake Resistance Suspension Bridge’ project explained how bridges with large number of vehicles can remain without vibrations & tremors less during earthquakes. A new type of laser technique utilized project ‘Target Shoot’ is to train shooters for Olympics and military men on training. For traffic problem, sensors oriented ‘Automobile Jammer’ was there to stop vehicles altogether before red lights and to start afresh on seeing green lights. For hot and cold areas, and ‘Temperature Regulating Building’ project guided how to keep houses air-conditioned in low budget.
One of the projects from the civil engineering department of LPU School of Polytechnic ‘Solid Waste Management (SWM)’ displayed the organized process of storage; collection, transportation, and disposal of solid refuse in an engineered sanitary landfill. LPU student Paarth Sharma explained well how their project is a great help for SWM. In fact, SWM is one of the major challenges being faced by many countries around the globe. Inadequate collection, recycling or treatment and uncontrolled disposal of waste in dumps can lead to severe hazards, such as health risks and environmental pollution.
For ‘Smart Stove’ project, Aditya Partap Singh of School of Electronics & Electricals informed that in rural areas most of the heat is produced from “Traditional Chullahs”, but their efficiency is quite low. There, heat is not concentrated over one place, and gets spread uselessly in all the directions. So, a part of heat produced is used for cooking while remaining gets wasted. This project is focussed on how to convert this wasted heat into electricity for further diverse usage.
